Note: This story is from a previous edition of the Gypsy Journal.  Tucked away on a side street near the Kentucky State Capitol building in Frankfort I discovered the delightful Capital City Museum, which tells the story of the City of Frankfort from its earliest days as a frontier settlement to today’s position as the […]

More Of The Same

I wish I had something exciting to tell you about in today’s blog – a road trip, a fishing excursion in our boat, dipping shrimp from our dock, or that I won the lottery. But alas, I would be lying. The last couple days have been pretty much the same thing. I have been getting […]

Our friend Jim Lewis says that Miss Terry’s cooking is going to ruin him. I’ve known Jim for over 30 years, and he never has been a big eater. But that was before he was introduced to Terry’s cooking. Now he cleans his plate, and often has seconds. Yes, it’s that good. Yesterday she made […]

Thank You, Jim

I owe my buddy Jim Lewis a huge thank you. He has saved me a lot of aggravation. I wrote in a blog a few days ago that we went to the Verizon store in Daytona Beach so Jim could upgrade his phone, and while he was there they told us about this great deal […]

Warning, this blog contains content that may not be comfortable for the squeamish. We have been dealing with a nasty problem, and while we still don’t know what caused it, after a lot of trial and error, and even more frustration, we seem to have solved it. At least for now. We are very careful […]

What, Me Worry?

I got an e-mail the other day from a blog reader asking me if I was worried about crime problems when we were camping at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas, and then Pleasant Valley RV Resort in Mission, since both places were so close to the Mexican border. Actually, Columbus is […]

When the alarm went off at 7:30 yesterday morning I wanted nothing more than to roll over and go back to sleep. But it was a travel day so I drug myself out of bed, sniveling all the way. Terry seemed to be over her cold for the most part, but mine was still in […]

Sneeze, Cough, Sniffle

That’s been the theme song at our motorhome for the last few days. Between Miss Terry, myself, and our friend Jim, I think we’ve sent first quarter sales for the folks that make Kleenex, Alka Seltzer Cold Formula, and Mucinex skyrocketing to new levels. Yesterday morning I actually discovered a spot in the web between […]

Whatever you’re doing, stop it right now and tell that special person in your life that you love them. Not because it’s Valentine’s Day, just because you should do it every chance you get. We’re not big on giving each other gifts on holidays because that’s not what they should be about. All year long […]

Longtime blog readers know that I have not been a big fan of the Rio Grande Valley, the Texas RV mecca that is home to thousands of Winter Texans. But I have to admit, our stay here at Pleasant Valley RV Resort in Mission has me rethinking my previous position on the place. We came […]
