That’s about all I can say for yesterday, and from what the weather report is saying, for most of the coming week here in Arizona. It started raining late Sunday night and pretty much never stopped all night long and all day yesterday. At least the wind, which continued to rock our coach all night, […]

We had a nice surprise when I logged into our bank account yesterday – Terry’s first Social Security payment was there. We didn’t expect it until the end of the month, but we’re sure not complaining. I’m not sure what she plans to do with her newfound wealth. Maybe a couple of trips to the […]

I spent much of the day yesterday getting the new digital edition of the Gypsy Journal uploaded to the internet and the link sent out to our digital subscribers. Somebody said that with all the time I’ve been at the keyboard the last week, I must be working my fingers down to nubs. They were […]

We’re getting down to the wire on our time here at Elkhart Campground. We have a reservation at the Gateway to Cape Cod Outdoor World Resort in Rochester, Massachusetts beginning on the 16th. It’s a little over 900 miles from here to there, so we will probably leave on Friday to start making our way […]

It was darned cold yesterday, but at least the rain has stopped, for now. I think winter is going to arrive early and be ugly this winter here in the Midwest. I made good on my word, and yesterday we slept in and got caught up on some of the sleep that we had missed […]

A heat wave has settled on the Midwest, and yesterday it was 91 degrees and very humid, making it uncomfortable to do anything outside. Fortunately, we had enough to do inside to keep us busy all day long. We had a couple of orders to fill and mail out, and Miss Terry had a lot […]

Heavy thunderstorms were predicted for Grand Traverse County yesterday, and about 7:30 a.m. it rained really hard for about 15 minutes, and then it stopped. It was strange, because there was no light rain or wind as a prelude; it just suddenly started to pound on the roof of our motorhome, and just as suddenly […]

Sometimes I wonder how some people ever get to the point in life where they can afford an RV and become fulltime RVers, or even weekend campers, because they are just so…. well, there’s no other way to say it….so dumb! One of the good things about my job is that I get a lot […]

Stuffing envelopes. Many, many envelopes. That about sums up our first day of the new year. Miss Terry has been busy getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal stuffed into envelopes so we can get it mailed off first thing Monday morning, so I don’t think she even stepped outside all day long. That […]

The old saying “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts” dates back to the story of the Trojan Horse, when the Greeks besieged the city of Troy during the Trojan War. According to legend, after a long siege, the Greeks built a huge wooden horse, and concealed a small force of their best soldiers inside. Then they […]
