Shivering And Shaking

People who have not spent much time here during the winter may think that Florida is warm year-round, but that’s not necessarily so! We had a cold front come through this weekend, dropping temperatures down into the low 50s during the daytime into the 30s at night, with a lot of wind accompanying it. Of […]

More Of The Same

I wish I had something exciting to tell you about in today’s blog – a road trip, a fishing excursion in our boat, dipping shrimp from our dock, or that I won the lottery. But alas, I would be lying. The last couple days have been pretty much the same thing. I have been getting […]

I get a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here, usually because they are ones I receive more than once from different people. Q. Now that you and Terry have bought a […]

What has happened to the world? Have we all become a population of total wimps? Every day I end my blog with a thought for the day. Yesterday’s was “You can tell a lot about a woman from her hands. For instance, if they are wrapped tightly around your throat, she’s probably upset about something.” […]

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I used to go to family reunions just to pick up girls. But hey, if it happens it happens, right? I know, you’re asking yourself what the heck this has to do with RVing but trust me, I’ll get there. And even if I don’t, remember that […]

I got a lot of very good response to yesterday’s blog post, If I Had It To Do Over. Thank you to everybody who posted comments in the blog, sent me emails, or messages through Facebook about it. It always makes me feel good when I know I’m helping other people out, and hopefully helping […]

Based upon the comments I got both here in the blog and by email in response to yesterday’s blog, You Must Plan Ahead, it’s obvious that there is a lot of interest in being able to spend the winter in places like Arizona and Florida, and also obvious that there are a lot of people […]

Note: I posted this in the blog several years ago, but based upon the questions I get, I thought it was worth updating and sharing again. No two RVers are the same. Some of us are fulltimers, some are snowbirds, and some are weekend warriors. Some of us like the wide open spaces and enjoy […]

To those of you who supported Donald Trump, congratulations. To those of you who opposed him, in four more years we get do it all over again and maybe this time around your candidate will win. But no matter who you voted for, the election is over. As I predicted in a recent blog post, the […]

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 […]
