Like I have been doing, I spent much of yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and by the time I knocked off a little after 4 PM I had ten pages done. But like they say, all work and no play makes Nick a dull boy. And the last thing I […]

It’s over already? Wow, that was a fast year! They say that as we get older time goes faster, and I think that must be true. So what was 2015 like for us? We started the year in Florida at the Three Flags RV Resort in Wildwood, one of our favorite campgrounds in the Thousand […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said we would eventually be changing our residence from South Dakota, several readers e-mailed or messaged me to ask why. Where you choose as your legal domicile isn’t just about where you register your RV or how much sales tax you pay. There are many other factors to […]

With 770,000 visitors last year, this blog generates a lot of e-mail. Usually around 100 a day. Much of it is from readers with comments and questions, which is always fun. But there is also a lot of trash. Besides the spam that slips through in spite of my filters, the never-ending forwards that I […]

Do you remember a while back when I wrote that this campground was a circus, with RVs coming and going in every direction? Well, I think they added a third ring for the holiday weekend. I don’t think you could shoehorn a roller skate in here at this point, but I still see rigs lined […]

A couple of months ago Terry ordered a book online from a nice lady named Tracy Kaestner who owns a place called Lone Star Loom Room in Houston, and Tracy invited her to stop in when we were in the area. But after dealing with Houston traffic on our way here from Livingston, Terry said […]

It rained much of Friday night but by yesterday the storm had moved out and we awoke to blue sky. It was chilly, with the high in the low 50s, but otherwise a nice day. A good day for flying. About noon we went to Travis and Geli’s house, because now that I have my […]

Kids And Kites

Yesterday was a day for kids and kites. I started out sitting outside with Greg and Jan and Greg’s cat Mister, who doesn’t know he’s a cat. I’m not sure what he thinks he is, but it’s definitely not a cat. I secretly think he’s really a dog in cat’s fur. I like cats about […]

The combined FMCA GLAMARAMA/Fleetwood rally is going on at the fairgrounds in Goshen and Greg and Jan wanted to check it out so we rode down there with them yesterday morning. I don’t think we’ve ever been to a rally that we weren’t putting on or working as vendors, so it felt kind of strange. […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish my son Travis happy birthday. Wow, 37 years! Where did they go? You’re almost an old man now, my son. What does that make me? I love you, Travis. I hope you have a great day. We’re looking forward to seeing you and Geli. On […]
