Our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally is off and running and everybody is having a good time. That’s mandatory at one of our events. Frowning can get you in trouble around here. The day started a 7:30 AM with me chasing down a couple of Class C motorhomes driving around the fairgrounds, seemingly lost and confused. […]

No Flood So Far

We got lucky and most of the rain that was predicted for the weekend bypassed Celina, and we’re sure grateful for that. We’ve parked RVs on a soggy fairgrounds before and it’s no fun. We only had 31 RVs come in yesterday, since most of the Early Birds arrived on Friday, with a few more […]

Our Early Bird arrival day is tomorrow, but we’ve already been busy parking dozens of RVs here at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio. They started rolling in yesterday morning and it was nonstop all day long. I don’t know exactly how many rigs came in but I would estimate somewhere around 50. Most […]

Yesterday afternoon I posted what I believe (hope) will be the final schedule for our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally. Unless there is a major problem, I don’t anticipate any last minute changes. You can view the schedule by going to our Rally Registration Page and scrolling down. A couple of readers have asked about last […]

Our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally begins one week from today, and it’s time to get busy wrapping up all the last-minute details before the event starts. Fortunately for Terry and me, we have a lot of help here to get the job done. Early yesterday afternoon, Mike and Elaine Loscher arrived at the fairgrounds and […]

It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, whether you are a mechanic, a carpenter, or a plumber, you need the best tools you can get your hands on to do your job. Now, anybody who knows me knows that I am not allowed to touch any kind of tool you can buy at […]

Miss Terry has been busy doing her thing, stuffing envelopes with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal like a mad woman, and yesterday afternoon we dropped off the last load of envelopes at the post office in Elkhart. It sure feels good to have that chore behind us! After we went to the post […]

Party Time

Yesterday we had a party to celebrate our good friend Al Hesselbart’s 70th birthday, which is actually today. But as I wrote a few days ago, when a guy gets that old, you don’t put things off if you can avoid it. Yes, Al’s gotten to that age when he doesn’t buy any green bananas, […]

We were up at the ungodly hour of 7:30 AM yesterday, to make the drive to Allegan, Michigan, where our printer is located, and where they are holding the Michigan Fiber Festival this weekend. Miss Terry is really into the fiber arts, spinning, weaving, crocheting, anything to do with them. She had never been to […]

I want to thank everybody who bought my new book, Crazy Days in Big Lake, and told their friends about it. When I got up yesterday morning, the book had already risen to #71 in Amazon’s E-book/Mystery/Police Procedural category, and by the end of the evening it was at #42. As if that weren’t enough, […]
