I really shouldn’t be allowed to leave the house without adult supervision. It never ends well when I do. As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I was meeting my friend author Stephen Arseneault for lunch yesterday. We had agreed to meet at Dustin’s Bar-B-Q, which is only a mile or two from the campground. I […]

The Day Went Astray

We planned to get a lot done yesterday here at home. My goal was at least 4,000 words in my sequel to Dog’s Run, and I was hoping to get all the way up to 6,000 done. Meanwhile, Miss Terry wanted to get the 464 threads threaded through the heddles on her loom for her […]

There’s a saying in the RV world that if you don’t like the neighbors, you can just move. So we did! Actually our neighbors were fine people, they were just parked too close to us. But that wasn’t their fault, the RV sites in some parts of the A section at the Orlando Thousand Trails […]

A Move To Seaside

We were awake at 6 a.m. yesterday because it was moving day. And though it was only a 120 mile trip, we needed to get to our new location, the Seaside Thousand Trails preserve, early to snag a good site. This is a very popular campground and stays busy all summer long. We were on […]

The Dead Zone

We really like the Elks lodge campground here in Florence, Oregon. The sites are roomy, the place is very clean, the power is good, and everybody is friendly. But it’s an internet dead zone. The Verizon signal on our cell phones and air card are very, very flakey, and getting online is really difficult. Staying […]

A Play Day

After I talked to our printer back in Allegan, Michigan yesterday and confirmed that they had received the files for the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and things looked good, Terry and I decided we deserved a play day. We left the campground about noon and drove a few miles north to the tiny […]

Moving Day

We moved around a lot when I was a kid and during my time in the Army, and later as a civilian I lived in a lot of places. I always hated moving. Not going someplace new and meeting new people all the time; that was exciting. But I dreaded the hassle of packing everything […]

Another Day At Home

We thought that we would get to play tourist yesterday, but the fast-moving storm system that came through the region the day before was followed up by a steady rain that fell all night long and well into the morning. Neither one of us really wanted to go out in that kind of weather, so […]

Stormy Weather

We woke up to gray skies overhead yesterday, and decided that it would be a good day to just stay home and stay off the road. The predicted thunderstorms that were supposed to come to this area yesterday arrived right on time, in mid-afternoon. About 3:30 PM the already gray day suddenly turned as black […]

Lots To See And Do

We had a good night camped at the Ludlow, Massachusetts Elks Lodge, where it was nice and quiet after the wedding party left. It was still really hot, and since we were only on 20 amp electric we didn’t want to attempt to run our air conditioner and trip the circuit. So we resorted to […]
