I was a little surprised when I got an email and blog comment from someone accusing me of being insensitive to African-Americans because of yesterday’s blog, In Search Of Aunt Jemima. But then, I guess I shouldn’t have been because I know some people wake up in the morning looking for some reason to be […]

Potpourri Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. Just a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’ll share, because I really don’t have anything else […]

You might think that fishing is pretty simple. You tie a hook on the end of your line, stick some bait on the hook, throw it in the water and just wait for a hungry fish to come by so you can make it your dinner. But as any experienced angler will tell you, there’s […]

Terry and I both spent many years living in the desert of Arizona before we moved up to the White Mountains, which was prior to our becoming fulltime RVers. And anybody who has ever been there knows that it gets terribly hot for months on end in the late spring, all summer long, and into […]

We lived in the White Mountains of northern Arizona before we hit the road as fulltime RVers but before that Terry and I both lived in the desert. Desert rats will tell you that, sure it’s 120°, but it’s a dry heat due to the low humidity. My response has always been that it’s dry […]

I had no idea that writing about how cold it was here in Apache Junction in yesterday’s blog would lead to a financial opportunity, but as it turns out, it has. People in Arizona are taking up a collection to pay me to get the hell out of the state, while the people in Florida […]

The temperatures in the desert are inching toward the triple digits and folks from Phoenix and Tucson are headed for the cool, comfortable high country of the White Mountains. We were out running errands yesterday and there was a steady stream of cars and campers rolling through Show Low. Two of those rigs that will […]

Our time in Apache Junction is over and today we’re headed for our old hometown of Show Low, Arizona. I’m not sure if it’s just in time, since the temperature here in the desert is already climbing, or if we’re jumping the gun since they had snow flurries in Show Low the middle of last […]

We’ve been so busy traveling, working the Escapade rally, dealing with medical appointments, and getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal ready to go to press that Terry has not had time for weaving. But we’ve finally got some much needed downtime and she’s back at it. She sleyed this job onto her loom […]

We’ve had a wonderful time here at my daughter Tiffany’s place but it’s time to say goodbye. The road is calling and we must answer. I’ve always said that the hardest part of the fulltime RV lifestyle is saying goodbye to the people we love. But the greatest part is that we get to come […]
