Note: This story is from the July-August 2012 issue of the Gypsy Journal. One fact that a lot of people never think about in warfare is the often overwhelming task of dealing with enemy troops who have been captured or who have surrendered.

Miss Terry set a new record getting all of the envelopes stuffed with the new issue of the paper, and by yesterday afternoon the majority of them were in the mail. We’ll drop the remainder off at the post office and UPS this morning. The Gypsy Journal goes out to our subscribers several different ways, […]

We took a break from moving yesterday to get caught up on other chores.  We had several orders to fill and get mailed out, so that was the first order of business. Last year we signed up with Stamps.com to be able to print our own postage online, and we have found that the small […]

We were out of bed earlier than usual yesterday morning and hit the ground running, and didn’t slow down until well past midnight. Sometimes there just are not enough hours in the day. We’re leaving Elkhart Campground today and driving 150 miles to Muskegon, Michigan for a week to spend some time visiting with my […]

Being sick last week put me behind schedule getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal out, so now I’m pushing the clock to get finished. I know I should have been working on it last week, but my brain was just too darned foggy to concentrate. I’d start to write something and halfway through […]
