For the last couple of days I have been involved in an email exchange with a couple who are brand-new fulltimers trying to adjust to life on the road. They are currently dry camping in the desert a couple of miles north of Quartzsite, Arizona and are freaking out about being in such a different […]

I’ve been working hard to get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, and when I knocked off about 9:30 last night I had about three pages left to go. I’ll finish it up today and print it out so Terry can give it a final proofreading, then I’ll make the corrections and get […]

She’s At It Again

There’s a lot happening in the area this weekend, from a craft fair in Nappanee to an RV show at the RV Museum here in Elkhart, to a gun show in Shipshewana. We didn’t go to any of them. In fact, the only time I went outside yesterday was to dump our holding tanks. But […]

The back seat of our Explorer is crammed full of stuff waiting to be dropped off at the Goodwill. I have no idea where it all comes from, but Terry was busy all day yesterday sorting and arranging things into piles to keep and piles to donate. And she tells me she’s hardly made dent […]

Sometimes I wonder how two people who live in a 40 foot motorhome can accumulate so much stuff, but somehow we manage to do it. And every so often we have to go through everything and declutter. It’s that time of year, and Miss Terry has been doing some spring cleaning, throwing out stuff and […]

Congratulations to Jimmy Cullipher, this week’s winner of the our drawing for an audiobook of Crazy Days in Big Lake! We had 137 entries in this week’s drawing. Stay tuned, a new drawing starts soon. Except for a quick trip to the dumpster, yesterday was another writing day for me. I did another 3,249 words […]

I Broke My Own Rule

Yesterday afternoon I broke my own self-imposed rule not to enter a big box store between Thanksgiving and the middle of January. To me, nothing spoils the Christmas spirit like fighting for a parking space so I can go into a store and fight a crowd of people to find stuff I really don’t need, […]

One Night’s Sleep

Just one night’s sleep. That’s all I ask for. I think if I could get a solid six to eight hours of sleep I’d feel a whole lot better. The last two nights I’ve been up and down all night long, coughing and sneezing. I may drink a quart of Nyquil before I go to […]

It started raining a little after midnight and continued for most of Saturday, like we needed more of it. The ground is saturated and water is standing in puddles everywhere. And we have more forecast for today. The rain didn’t really impact us because we’ve been busy labeling and stuffing envelopes pretty much nonstop. Except […]
