Terry and I are getting excited because in only one more day, we have company coming. And not just any company, but my son Travis and his beautiful wife Geli. They are leaving their home in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this afternoon and plan to drive south to somewhere around Tallahassee, Florida before they stop for the […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we purchased a SimpliSafe security system for our house and yesterday Terry and I installed it. It was a quick and fairly easy process, just like their advertisements say, The first step was setting up the base station, which receives signals from all the different sensors we installed and […]

One of the drawbacks to our home here in Edgewater, Florida is that Verizon service really sucks. If we go north or south a mile, we’ve got four bars of 4G. But here at home we get one bar if you’re really, really lucky. Even using my We Boost signal booster doesn’t help. We just […]

Yesterday was one of the most frustrating days I’ve had in a long time. We were awakened by somebody pounding on our door, and when I stumbled my way to it, it was a fellow from our homeowners insurance company telling me he had to take three pictures from the outside of the property for […]

I am sure that the next time we take a road trip in our Winnebago motorhome we are going to get great mileage. Because I think we’ve carried three or four tons of stuff out of it and into the house in the last couple of days. Moving is hard work and we are absolutely […]

Please watch where you’re walking around us for a while, will you? Because mine and Miss Terry’s butts are dragging and I wouldn’t want you to step on them. With my dad’s work when I was a kid, and later my time in the military and living in different places around the country afterward, I […]

And what do I get? No, not boney fingers! Short, pudgy, arthritic fingers that are paying the price for the last two days, when I’ve put in over ten hours a day working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. But it will be worth it when we get to send out the new […]

A Long Short Trip

We left the Oceana RV Resort in Ocean City, Washington yesterday morning at 10:30 and set out on our 95 mile trip to the Long Beach Thousand Trails preserve. Though it was a relatively short distance as RV trips go, I knew it wasn’t going to be a fast one. And I was right. We […]

Wow, That Was Fast!

Thank you to everybody who left blog comments, sent e-mails, or posted birthday greetings on Facebook yesterday. You all made me feel very special. Wow, 60 years sure went fast! I’m looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen in the next 60! We woke up to rain yesterday morning and it rained on and […]
