It has taken me a while to get used to my new Moto Z Play phone, but overall I’m very pleased with it. The camera is excellent, the battery life is amazing, and I get a better signal with it here in our fringe Verizon reception area than I did with my Samsung. There has […]

Miss Terry Gets Smart

We were up early again yesterday, since we are trying to readjust our sleeping patterns and get to bed earlier and get up earlier than normal. We have company visiting from out of state in a couple of weeks and we kind of thought it might be polite to not sleep the day away while they […]

Isn’t technology a wonderful thing? Just think about how far we have come in only a few short years. We never had a telephone until I was thirteen years old and I still remember our first color TV. Now I’ve got a smart phone that I can watch movies on, surf the internet, and use […]

Yesterday was a day for kids and kites. I started out sitting outside with Greg and Jan and Greg’s cat Mister, who doesn’t know he’s a cat. I’m not sure what he thinks he is, but it’s definitely not a cat. I secretly think he’s really a dog in cat’s fur. I like cats about […]

A Lot Going On

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 […]

Anybody who knows me well already knows that I require adult supervision at all times. Left to my own devices, there is no end to the trouble I can get into, and I don’t have to look far to find it. So you can blame Miss Terry, or Greg White, or Ron Speidel for what […]

A Serious Case Of Lazy

Yesterday I came down with a serious case of lazy and did not accomplish one thing all day long. And I don’t even feel guilty about it! There were a lot of things that I should have been doing, including working on my new Big Lake  book, but I just couldn’t get myself motivated. I […]

Already Busy

Our Early Bird arrival day is tomorrow, but we’ve already been busy parking dozens of RVs here at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio. They started rolling in yesterday morning and it was nonstop all day long. I don’t know exactly how many rigs came in but I would estimate somewhere around 50. Most […]

A heat wave rolled into the upper Midwest yesterday, raising the temperature here in Elkhart up to a high of 102° with high humidity to go along with it. It was a good day to stay inside with the air-conditioning on as much as possible. We both had a really rough night the night before. […]

Yesterday we left the campground a little after noon, to meet our friends Tom and Barb Westerfield for lunch at a Buffalo Wild Wings. We hadn’t seen Tom and Barb since our rally in Yuma in early March, where they were part of our advance crew, and handled a million and one large and small […]
