Yesterday was a cold, dreary day here on Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula, and I had hoped to spend it writing while Terry was weaving. But life had other plans for us. Monday evening Terry washed the dinner dishes with no problem, but at bedtime we could not get more than a trickle of water from […]

When I went to bed Tuesday night, I was trying to figure out what my next step would be if we could not find an electrical receptacle for our shore power cord. And just as I was drifting off to sleep, it hit me. Plan B! The shore power cord plugs into the receptacle and […]

Would somebody please turn off the wind? I’ve had more than enough! I’ve lived in Tucson a couple of times in my life, and spent a lot of time visiting, and I can never remember so much wind so many days in a row. We’ve been here over a week and every day it’s been […]

I am amazed and thrilled by the response to yesterday’s announcement that my newest book, Big Lake Blizzard, had been published on Amazon. Within the first 24 hours it had sold 140 copies and its Amazon Best Sellers Rank was #1,334 Paid in the overall Kindle store, #27 in Books > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense […]

Yesterday morning I called around, trying to locate the drain pump for our Splendide washer/dryer combo. I was concerned, because Greg White had told me he couldn’t find Splendide parts in the Houston area and when he needed parts for his, he had to order them from Westland Sales in Clackamas, Oregon. But I got […]

Miss Terry has been busy doing her thing, stuffing envelopes with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal like a mad woman, and yesterday afternoon we dropped off the last load of envelopes at the post office in Elkhart. It sure feels good to have that chore behind us! After we went to the post […]

Several years ago my cousin Berni Frees and her husband Rocky tried out the fulltime RV lifestyle for a while and we spent some wonderful times together on the road. Early on, we were all sitting under their motorhome’s awning at Elkhart Campground and somebody came by with a copy of one of my RV […]

Do you remember a couple months ago when the talking heads on television were predicting $5 a gallon gas this summer, and everybody was changing their traveling plans or talking about selling their RVs and getting off the road? Guess what? It didn’t happen! In fact, in most places both gas and diesel are at […]

No, I’m not talking about baseball, this is something much better. At least it is to me! As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, last month I sold 545 copies of my e-book mystery Big Lake, and and 709 e-books all together, and I had set a goal for myself to sell a total of 1,000 […]

Yesterday morning we said goodbye to Greg and Jan as they pulled out, headed for Houston, Texas by way of the Thousand Trails preserve in Batesville, Indiana, and a couple of other stops along the way. Except for a couple of weeks here and there, we have been traveling together since our rally in Yuma […]
