With my new book finished, I’m already planning my next writing project and will be jumping headfirst into that soon. As for Big Lake Abduction, the one I finished on Tuesday evening, Miss Terry started proofreading it yesterday. She was laughing by the second page, so I hope that’s a good thing. I spent much […]

That is the question. While I’d really love to take my iMac out to the local cinder pit and blow it to pieces with my AR-15, that’s probably juvenile, right? And besides, it would make a mess and I’d spend the rest of the day picking up pieces of it to haul away. No, not […]

I lost a lot of time while we were with our friends Jim and Shar during her last days, so I’m behind schedule on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. So the last few days I’ve been pretty much chained to my desk, making up for lost time. But you know what they say […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I’ve been hitting it pretty hard the last few days and was starting to feel a bit burned out. So I decided to play hooky from my desk and go play yesterday. The four of us left Charles and Chris’ lot in the Yuma Foothills, and after a stop […]

There is frugal and then there is cheap, and there is a difference between the two. I wrote a book called The Frugal RVerto help RVers save money on the road. We publish guides to free campgrounds, fairgrounds with RV camping, and casino camping. Taking advantage of these opportunities is being frugal. And then there’s […]

Plinking

I don’t know where the time went, but it had been over three years since we had done any target shooting, and that’s way too long. So yesterday we drove out to the cinder pit on Porter Mountain Road in Lakeside, Arizona and did some plinking. For those of you who are not shooters, plinking […]

Terry and I have been dry camping at Mike and Pam Steffen’s place in Salt Flat, Texas for a couple of days, swapping lies, playing with their herd of dogs, target shooting, and admiring the star filled sky above us at night. In another life, that would be called goofing off, but in the laid […]

In a conversation with a new fulltimer the other day, he mentioned that the one thing he knows he’ll miss is his gardening hobby. Apparently he had a greenhouse at his former home and is well known for his roses, which have won ribbons in the county fair for years. He asked me what hobbies […]
