We were out of bed a little after 7 a.m. yesterday morning and on the road by 9, headed back down to Tucson in the Explorer for a 1 p.m. appointment with a rheumatologist at the V.A. hospital. As it turns out, it was a wasted trip. We made excellent time, getting to Tucson about […]

Most of yesterday morning was spent printing out RV guides to fill orders that had come in, and then packing them and going to the post office to mail them out. I also re-mailed some envelopes with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal that we mailed out over three weeks ago to subscribers that […]

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 […]

Thank you all for your e-mail and messages of support. I’m not overly worried about the skin cancer thing at this point; it is what it is. The folks at the V.A. have always taken very good care of me. My only concern is that cancer has claimed several members of my family, including my […]

They say that getting old isn’t for sissies, and I believe them. The last few weeks have been kind of hectic, between appointments at the V.A. hospital in Tucson, our friend Sharleen’s surgery, the Fluorouracil cream treatment on my face, the report that my biopsy came back positive for skin cancer, and yesterday’s colonoscopy. The […]

The last few days I have been pretty much chained to my desk, working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and by the time I knocked off last night I had 30 pages done, which puts me in a good position to have it to the printer Monday morning. Usually by now I would […]

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. […]

Brrr! Break out the long johns. It got down into the mid-30s overnight here in Tucson and the next few days are only supposed to get into the mid to upper 60s. I highly disapprove! As I reported in a blog a few days ago, on my visit to the V.A. Hospital here in Tucson […]
