When we dropped our Winnebago off at PPL Motorhomes in Houston, Texas at the end of September, the rep who looked it over and did all of the consignment sale paperwork predicted it would sell within 45 days. 30 days later they took an offer on it and it was listed as Sale Pending. We […]

Some guys go to Fredericks of Hollywood to buy their women something sexy to slip into. But Miss Terry doesn’t go for all that frilly stuff. I go to Lowe’s instead, because she’s more the tool belt kind of girl. Longtime readers will remember that for over eight years we lived in an MCI bus […]

Well, thanks to the wonders of pharmaceuticals I’m at least able to write a blog for today. As Greg White posted for me yesterday, after checking me over on Monday the chiropractor was afraid to do any adjustments because she suspected my problem might be a kidney stone. She advised me to go to an […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is another post in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

Whenever I give a seminar on writing or self-publishing, I always tell the audience that while it’s great to have the newest computer with all the bells and whistles, you just can’t beat having a strong Internet connection when you want to get online and research something for a book, and having your own writing […]

I’ve been getting a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, I wanted to share some with the folks here today. Q. I know that you and Terry built a bus conversion and lived in it for quite some time before getting […]

As I wrote in Wednesday’s blog, according to PPL Motorhomes’ website, our Winnebago has been listed as Sale Pending for over a week. I got a call from the sales manager on Wednesday afternoon telling me that the buyers had their own mechanic come in and look the rig over, and that he was not […]

A couple of blog readers have asked me if PPL Motorhomes in Houston has finished with the sale of our Winnebago motorhome yet. You may remember that on Monday of last week, exactly two weeks after we dropped it off, they changed the online listing to Sale Pending. I waited a couple of days and […]

We have had a lot going on the last few days, so I thought I would bring you up to date on things in today’s blog. Terry finished the first proofreading and editing of Badge Bunny, and it is now in the hands of the second proofreader. Once she’s done and the corrections she suggested […]

I didn’t sleep well the night before and woke up feeling groggy yesterday morning, so it was a little after noon before I started writing. But I still managed to crank out another 5,500 words and finished Badge Bunny, the third book in my John Lee Quarrels mystery series. It came in at just over 79,000 […]
