Thank you to everybody who sent messages or emails expressing concern about Terry falling off of her bicycle, which I wrote about in Wednesday’s blog. She is still a little stiff and has some bruises, but otherwise she is fine and looking forward to taking it for a ride as soon as she loosens up […]

Sometimes I get questions about our weekly free drawings so I thought I would answer some of them here today. Quite a few people want to know how I pick the winners every week and how they can increase their chances of winning. I don’t pick the winners. I use a free website called Random.org […]

Not Just By E-mail

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish Terry’s mother happy birthday. I’m not sure my mother-in-law always knows how to take me, but she has let her daughter hang out with me for the last 19 years so I guess I must be doing something right. Happy birthday, Bess! We love you. […]

I Got My Play Day!

Never underestimate the power of positive sniveling. I wrote in yesterday’s blog that I had been chained to my desk cranking out words in my next John Lee Quarrels mystery novel and that I needed a break. That’s kind of how we do things; we work hard for a few days, and then we’ll take […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, a big storm system was supposed to be making its way through the Southeast on Sunday, bringing the possibility of severe weather to central Florida. One should always be aware of the potential for threatening weather wherever they are. Especially if they live or travel in an RV. In […]

I have been doing a lot of writing lately and I was hoping to get out and goof off today but it looks like that may not happen. A major cold front is coming through central Florida today and the weatherman is predicting a lot of stormy weather. The news said that we can expect […]

I wanted to give you an update on the couple I told you about in yesterday’s blog, who were beginning to feel anxious about boondocking in Quartzsite, Arizona after a neighbor filled their heads with all kinds of nonsense about how dangerous it was. They wrote to me yesterday evening to say message received, and […]

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 […]

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 […]
