I’m surprised at how many people I hear complaining that Hurricane (now tropical storm) Hermine has disrupted their Labor Day weekend plans. I don’t mean the “Darn, that sucks” kind of complaining, but rather those that are upset because campgrounds and RV parks where they had reservations are closed due to damage or a lack […]

Off To See The Printer

Yesterday we put the final touches on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and after Miss Terry proofed it I sent it off to our printer back in Michigan. Well, I didn’t send it, I actually uploaded it to their web server. They’ll print it this coming week and get it shipped back to […]

Sometimes it seems like there’s just one problem after another when you live in an RV. Morry Bernard from West Coast Mobile RV Service & Repair fixed our original water leak, and then another one that popped up, and now our Atwood water heater is on the fritz. When I took my shower Friday night […]

We woke up to a cold rain about 7:30 yesterday morning, and I wanted nothing more than to snuggle back under the covers with Miss Terry and sleep for another couple of hours. But we had to get up and get going, because we had a 10 o’clock appointment to get new tires put on […]

We were up and out the door by 7:30 a.m. yesterday, headed for Benny’s Auto Repair to get the front end of our Ford Explorer worked on. Not for the first time, we both said a little prayer of thanks for not having to be part of the working world commuting to a job every […]

Ask me what I accomplished yesterday. Go ahead, ask me. Okay, I’ll tell you. Not a darned thing! All I did was take up space and breathe valuable air that productive human beings could have used. I goofed around on the computer for a while, had lunch, took the trash to the campground dumpster and […]

Good Service In A.J.

Thanks to everybody who e-mailed or posted suggestions about the ABS light on our Ford Explorer that I wrote about in yesterday’s blog. The problem has been fixed. When I went out yesterday morning, the SUV had developed a really bad shake in the front end that told me it might be more than the […]

Our routine has been pretty much the same the last few days; get up, check and answer e-mail, fill any new orders that came in overnight, drive about 35 miles across town to Barrows Neurological Institute and spend time with Jim and Sharleen, grab a bite to eat, come home, answer the e-mails that came […]

From Cold To Cacti

We woke up early yesterday morning to the delightful sense of our motorhome not rocking in the wind. The storm that had brought those terrible gusts to northern Arizona had moved on eastward into New Mexico, and though the sky was cloudy and the air was cold, we knew we’d have good traveling weather. For […]

Any author who’s going to survive for very long needs to grow a thick skin, because there are going to be people who don’t like your books. You will get bad reviews, and occasionally even e-mails telling you why they don’t like your work. This can be a positive if they are legitimate complaints that […]
