It is amazing to me how much better I’m feeling after a couple of weeks worth of visits to the chiropractor three times a week. I can’t say enough good about Dr. Thomas and the rest of the staff at Coastal Integrative Healthcare in New Smyrna Beach. Two weeks ago I was seriously considering back […]

The Snowbirds Are Back

Traffic is heavier on the local roads, stores are busier, and restaurants that we used to be able to walk right into and get a table now have waiting times to be seated. Yes indeed, the snowbirds are back in Florida. Some people who live here year round grumble about that, but the business community […]

Is Winter Over Yet?

That cold front the weatherman had been promising us arrived with a vengeance over the weekend, with overnight temperatures down into the mid to upper 30s. Now, if you live in some godforsaken place like Michigan or Minnesota, that probably seems like a balmy spring day to you. But I’m not there. I’m here on […]

Chinese And Cake, Too!

Our normal schedule has always been for me to write late into the evening and we usually didn’t get to bed until about 1:30 AM or later. Then we would get up around 10 AM. But for a couple of months Terry and I were working hard at going to bed earlier and getting up […]

It’s been a writing marathon for the last few days for me. I got 8,000 words done Tuesday, and another 8,000 yesterday, and finished my newest book, Big Lake Tragedy. Today I will give it a final read-through and make any corrections that I see, then I will print it out so Miss Terry can […]

I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal yesterday and printed it out for Miss Terry to do a final proofreading. She will finish that up this morning, then I’ll make any corrections that are needed and get it uploaded. Then, sometime late this afternoon or early evening, I’ll be sending out the link to […]

A Family Affair

I don’t have a lot of family left in the world, and I’m not that close to most of them because I have lived in different parts of the country while I pursued my newspaper career, and then traveling for the last 17 years in our motorhome publishing the Gypsy Journal RV newspaper. But yesterday […]

With my new book finished, I’m already planning my next writing project and will be jumping headfirst into that soon. As for Big Lake Abduction, the one I finished on Tuesday evening, Miss Terry started proofreading it yesterday. She was laughing by the second page, so I hope that’s a good thing. I spent much […]

She’s Still Purging

No, Miss Terry does not have an eating disorder, but she has been purging for days now. She decided she was tired of carrying around so much stuff that never gets used so she’s been going through all of the cabinets and clearing things out. Lots of stuff has gone to the dumpster, and other […]

No, that’s not a typo that I left in the headline to give my proofreading friends a migraine. It’s a word that I made up to describe living long term with your spouse or partner in the close confines of an RV. It is a situation that can be either heaven on earth, or pure […]
