Our time in Tucson is over and today we leave Voyager RV Resort for Apache Junction. We’ve been here over three weeks and during that time we have not had one day to just chill out and relax. It’s been a whirlwind of annual medical appointments, working the Escapees Escapade rally, more medical stuff, and […]

Our two weeks at Santa Fe RV Park in Apache Junction went by in a blur, between running back and forth to the hospital to be with our friends Sharleen and Jim, dealing with the major discomfort of the Fluorouracil treatment on my face, and working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. We […]

Almost Done!

We originally planned to leave Santa Fe RV Park here in Apache Junction today and to go back to Tucson to get settled in for more stuff at the V.A. hospital next week. But we decided to extend for two more nights to give me time to get the next issue of the paper finished. […]

Swimming Upstream

Sometimes I get into an e-mail exchange and it takes me two or three messages back and forth to realize that I’m swimming upstream against a strong current with no hope of making any progress. Yesterday was a good example. I received an e-mail from a fellow informing that I was wrong when I said […]

The question for today is, what’s the point of being an early bird if you don’t like worms? It makes no sense to me. But we were up before 7 a.m. again yesterday. And yes, I know I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again. Mornings suck. Now don’t all of you […]

She’s At It Again

We only have a few more days left here in Apache Junction. Next Wednesday we’ll leave for Tucson, where we have medical appointments scheduled and family members to spend time with. We’re not sure how long we’ll be there, at least two weeks and maybe longer, depending on how soon all of the medical stuff […]

I’d like to say that we’ve had a good time here in Tucson, but Miss Terry’s recent health problems have been the focus of much of our attention and energy. We did get to spend some time with my cousin Beverly while we were here, which I always treasure. Saying goodbye to the people you […]

A Long Day At The VA

Yesterday was a very long day for me. I arrived at the Tucson VA Hospital just after 10 AM, and by the time I left a few minutes before 5 PM I had been poked, prodded, examined, x-rayed, digitally imaged, had my skin frozen with nitrogen, and probably a few other things I can’t remember […]

None of us like wasting money, and in today’s economy, a lot of people are finding ways to save every penny they can. But when does thrift become less advantageous than the effort or inconvenience required to achieve it? One example is an RVer I know who never purchases fuel at stations near an interstate […]
