We thought about staying at North River Campground near Shawboro, North Carolina longer because we really liked the campground and I would have liked to have toured the Museum of the Albemarle in nearby Elizabeth City. But they are having their annual seafood festival this week and we didn’t have advance reservations, so it was […]

We left the campground with Greg and Jan a little after 10 a.m. yesterday on a mission. We were going to meet some new friends for lunch in the nearby town of Lebanon. We got to town a few minutes early and used the time to cruise the main street, which was lined with interesting […]

They say when in Rome, do as the Romans do, and I guess it works that way in small towns too. So yesterday we joined half of Wilmington and went to the Caesar Creek Flea Market, which is only a couple of miles away from the Thousand Trails campground. The venue bills itself as Ohio’s […]

I know I sure missed all of you over the last couple of days. It’s good to be back, and hopefully we’re here to stay. I’m keeping my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed just in case. The problem started Monday night when I tried to post Tuesday’s blog. It would not load up no matter […]

Congratulations to Norma Heck, this week’s winner of an audiobook of Crazy Days in Big Lake, the third book in my Big Lake mystery series. We had 136 entries this time around.

As I’ve said many times, Terry and I are best friends and we’re never happier than when we’re together. It doesn’t matter if we are out exploring someplace new, wandering through a small town museum, browsing the vendors at a flea market, or at home relaxing and doing our own thing, whatever that happens to […]

A Good Day

Yesterday was a good day for a lot of reasons, the first being that we didn’t have anything to do, so we could sleep in. That’s always a treat for us, since we usually work late and seldom get to bed before 2 a.m. We rolled out of bed about 10 a.m. and after checking […]

Yesterday was a long day that started out with a real scare, but it all worked out and when all was said and done, it was all worth it. We were up by 7:30, and after the usual rounds of answering e-mails and deleting junk mail and forwards we hit the road, pulling out of […]

Kite Flying Weather

It’s been very windy here at the Thousand Trails campground in Cottonwood, Arizona, with more wind predicted today. Which makes it perfect kite flying weather. But alas, the only thing I’ve been flying is my keyboard. The good news is I’m making steady progress on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and I’m on […]

Thanks to everyone who left comments or e-mailed me about our problems with Google  AdSense in yesterday’s blog. For whatever reason, about mid-morning the ads returned and eventually I got an e-mail from Google thanking me for correcting the issues that led to getting suspended. No problem, I don’t know what you think was wrong […]
