Whatever happened to April showers bringing May flowers? Last night it was snowing here at Tiffany’s place, a few miles outside of Show Low, Arizona and the temperature was down in the low 30s overnight. Today the high will be just over 60, and depending on which weatherman you choose to believe, it will be […]

A cold front is making its way across Arizona, bringing a mixture of rain and snow to the high country, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s and lows in the upper 20s for the next couple of days. Down here in the desert we’re in the low 70s during the day and […]

Note: This is an update on a blog about hanging up the keys that first ran in the blog in November, 2010. The time comes for all fulltimers when illness, advancing age, changing interests, family needs, or some other reason causes us to make the decision to hang up the keys. Some fulltime RVers enter […]

I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal yesterday, Terry proofread it, and I uploaded it to our printer’s web server late last night. Now it’s time to play. Somebody please ring the bell for recess! While Terry was proofing the new issue, our neighbor Albert Casaus came by to renew his subscription and […]

And what do I get? No, not boney fingers! Short, pudgy, arthritic fingers that are paying the price for the last two days, when I’ve put in over ten hours a day working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. But it will be worth it when we get to send out the new […]

Several readers have asked where we are going when we leave Show Low next week and what our travel plans are. While we have a general idea of what we’ll be doing, nothing is set in stone. The only obligation we have is to be in Gillette, Wyoming for the Escapees Escapade rally the end […]

There has been a lot going on in the last 24 hours or so and I need to stop and take a deep breath! Friday I got the new issue of the Gypsy Journal done, and once Miss Terry proofs it I’ll upload it to our printer’s webserver later today. Then I can get back […]

The weatherman had been predicting a cooling trend with heavy winds across Arizona yesterday and he sure didn’t lie! The breeze was stiff all morning, and about noon it really began to pick up. I was glad we didn’t have our big patio awning out! The wind increased all afternoon and the news was reporting […]

We originally planned to stay a week or two here in our old hometown of Show Low, Arizona. But when we checked into the Elks Lodge campground the manager said we could only stay for eight days because the place was booked for the summer. Those eight days would put us leaving today. However… We […]

A Quiet Day At Home

Yesterday we had a quiet day at home, one of those relaxing days when we didn’t do anything that we didn’t feel like doing. No phone calls, no visitors, just us. We need days like that once in a while, and lately they’ve been hard to come by. I spent most of the day writing, […]
