No, I haven’t been a very bad boy who deserves punishment. Well, at least, no worse than normal. And no, Miss Terry and I have not been doing anything kinky involving whips and things like that. I’m talking about paddling our Sea Eagle kayaks. One of the things that sold us on our house is […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish Kay Peterson, one of the finest ladies I have ever had the honor of knowing, a very happy birthday. For those of you who don’t know Miss Kay, she and her late husband Joe founded the Escapees RV Club, which in my opinion (and that […]

Well, my buddy Greg White can no longer call my boat a hangar queen. I bought the Key Largo back in early December, but then between having a house guest for a couple of weeks, finishing up my new book, Big Lake Celebration, and getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal out, it’s been sitting […]

I have a friend who is much younger than me, the father of two children, who went through a bad patch in his marriage a while back. It looked like things were over between him and his wife and he moved out for a while, at her request. Fortunately, they seem to be working things […]

I’ve been working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and it’s coming together nicely. This is our first all digital edition, and I’ve spent a lot of time reformatting the layout to make it easier to read on laptop computers, tablets, and smart phones. The printed edition of the paper was 11 1/2 […]

For some time now we have been planning to change our legal domicile from South Dakota to Florida. There were several reasons for this, including the fact that if and when we ever hang up the keys, it will be here in Florida. Other factors in our decision-making were that it’s difficult for fulltime RVers […]

I hear from people all the time who have a blog and want to make money from it, or have companies send them free products. I always tell them that, first of all you have to have the reader numbers and the track record to attract those businesses, but also, if you’re willing to plug […]

In an effort to rearrange our sleep schedules, Terry and I have been making it a point to get to bed earlier and wake up earlier, but we decided to turn off the alarm and yesterday morning. I was hoping to sleep until after 9, but a little before 8 a.m. the telephone rang. It […]

Fleas And Barking Rats

We enjoy wandering through flea markets looking at all of the trash and treasures on display, and one of the best ones is the huge Webster Flea Market, held every Monday in Webster, Florida. Rain was predicted for yesterday afternoon, so we were up a little after 7 a.m. hoping to beat the storm. There […]

The year is winding down and I still don’t know where the heck it went. It seems like it was just January a couple of weeks ago, and here we are with Christmas behind us and we’re closing in fast on New Years’ Eve. The same with our time here at the Orlando Thousand Trails […]
