We made the decision long ago not to own any more pets because one would not fit well with our lifestyle since we are on the go so much covering stories for the Gypsy Journal, and the animal would be stuck at home by itself for hours on end. But I do love dogs. Not […]

It Got Here Eventually

When we had dinner with Charles and Chris Yust Friday evening we had discussed going to New Smyrna Beach yesterday. They have not been there, and there were three or four properties that we wanted to look at. So we were up early yesterday morning but the weather didn’t look too good. I messaged a […]

My Lucky Day

I guess yesterday was my lucky day. I started out with several very nice reviews for Big Lake and for Big Lake Burning, the first and latest books in my Big Lake mystery series. Reviews are very important to authors in terms of marketing our books, and positive reviews are especially nice both for sales […]

No, I’m not referring to my ex-wife. Really, I’m not. I swear. I’m talking about the weather here in Tuscaloosa, Alabama the last couple of days. It’s been downright miserable. We even had a few snow flurries predicted for Friday night! Today it’s supposed to be clear, with highs in the low 50s. That may […]

We were up early yesterday morning, getting ready for our 130 mile trip to North River Campground near Shawboro, North Carolina. I was glad I remembered to turn on our engine heater because it had gotten down into the low 50s overnight and was a chilly morning. By the time we did our routine morning […]

Yesterday morning my new book, Crazy Days in Big Lake, went live on the Amazon Kindle bookstore, and on Smashwords for folks who use Nooks and other e-book readers. Actually, I got an e-mail from Amazon saying it was live about 10 PM the evening before. But the link wouldn’t work and it didn’t actually […]

The storm system that came through this part of Texas was downright wicked! Tuesday night the wind started blowing, the rain started pouring, and there were a few times I thought our motorhome might just take flight. It wasn’t a very restful night! Yesterday morning was just as windy, but at least the rain stopped […]

Don’t ask me how I did it, but somehow, I managed to misplace an entire day! How does one do that? I knew that our two weeks at the Orlando Thousand Trail preserve was up on the 28th and we’d be leaving for two weeks. But for some reason, all along I thought the 28th […]
