I’ll tell you right now, the turkey wasn’t the only thing to get stuffed at our house for Thanksgiving! We had a quiet day at home, just the two of us, which is just the way we like it. Miss Terry had bought a turkey breast and cooked it, along with all the goodies, and […]

That’s A Big Loom!

When I first started flying quad line Revolution kites, I remember asking someone that with all the variations, from full sail to mid-vent to full-vent models for different wind conditions, as well as ultra lights and other models, just how many kites does a guy need? The answer was, no matter how many you have, […]

Those four words above, the title to today’s blog, they are the reason I can never run for any kind of elected office. I mean, after all, have you ever heard any politician ever say those words? I spent a career in the newspaper business and interviewed everybody from candidates for small town city councils […]

Today We Play

For the last few days we’ve been sticking pretty close to home writing and weaving, so I have declared today a play day. We need those every once in a while. Terry finished weaving her latest project and took it off the loom last night. It’s a huck lace shawl, a new pattern for her […]

We’ve been busy with some chores the last couple of days and I had not had any time for writing. So yesterday after I dealt with all of the e-mails that came in overnight, I parked myself in front of the computer and went to work. By the time I knocked off several hours later, […]

We Make It Work

Several blog readers have asked how big Miss Terry’s Baby Wolf loom is and how much space it takes up in our motorhome. The loom folds up when not in use. When it’s opened up, the loom’s footprint is about three feet square, with the beam handle adding another six inches or so to its […]

There’s a lot happening in the area this weekend, from a craft fair in Nappanee to an RV show at the RV Museum here in Elkhart, to a gun show in Shipshewana. We didn’t go to any of them. In fact, the only time I went outside yesterday was to dump our holding tanks. But […]

All Kinds Of Pretty

The weather has been excellent here in northern Indiana this week, with days in the mid to upper 70s and nights in the low 60s. That’s what I call pretty weather! Talking about pretty, check out this combination of a 1936 Cadillac and vintage Spartan Manor trailer that pulled into Elkhart Campground Wednesday afternoon. The trailer […]

Yesterday was another long day at the computer for me, close to ten hours, I think. But it was worth it because by the time I knocked off I was just about finished with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. I’ve got about an hour left to go on it this morning and then […]

In spite of all of our recent interruptions, we finally had a day to spend at home yesterday so we could get some writing and weaving done. And we got a lot accomplished! I cranked out about 4,600 words on my new book and by the end of the day I was a little over […]
