Sunday evening we got an email from our old friend Pat Astbury, telling us she was at Elkhart Campground and had been thinking about us and the times we have crossed paths here. Pat and her husband Scott were a very nice couple that we always enjoyed visiting with, and we were heartbroken when Scott […]

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 […]

More Of The Same

For most of the time we’ve been here at the Show Low Elks lodge campground, there have only been three or at times four RVs. But with temperatures heating up in the desert it’s starting to get busy. A couple of rigs came in Monday and I think at least three more arrived yesterday. We […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that after working a lot of hours this past week finishing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, I planned to spoil myself and sleep in, and that’s just what I did! We got to bed about 3 a.m. and woke up about 10:30. I guess I needed it; I’m […]

Another One Done

I finished the new issue of the paper yesterday, and after Terry gave it a final proof and I made the corrections I uploaded it to our printer’s web server. They’ll check it again today and get it ready to put on the press. It always feels good to get a new issue done. This […]

The Escapade officially ended yesterday, but with vendor days over on Thursday afternoon, we either had to pay for an extra night or leave by noon. We had plenty to keep us busy so we said our goodbyes and left yesterday. It got down into the low 30s overnight and it was downright frigid when […]

A Good First Day

Today was a good first day for our winter Florida stay. We slept in, rolled over and snuggled up close, then fell asleep again for another hour or so. We finally had to get up, because it was getting too warm inside our motorhome, and we needed to open some windows and let the fresh […]

We Are In Celina!

Yesterday was the third morning in a row that I was up before 9 a.m. I think I need to have some sort of intervention to break this vicious cycle! 🙁 I answered a bunch of e-mails, logged in a couple of orders for digital Gypsy Journal subscriptions, and then we started getting ready to […]

Thick Skin

After reading yesterday’s blog, someone wrote that I had better have thick skin, because I might be hearing from a lot of folks with ADD kids. That’s what my problem is, thick skin. I may look chubby to you, but actually I’m so darned skinny I’m almost anorexic. I just have all this darned thick […]
