I worked late on Tuesday night, trying to get as much done in my new book as I could. Of course, when I work that late I can’t just flip a switch and turn it off and fall asleep. It takes a while for my mind to unwind and relax. So it was sometime after […]

The other day our friend Jim Lewis showed up at the house with two sets of Mighty Bite fishing lures that he had just gotten in the mail. Jim said according to the infomercial he had watched, these things are surefire fish killers, so he bought a set for him and one for us. Looking […]

Note: This story is from the July-August, 2013 issue of the Gypsy Journal. Besides Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower II, Pilgrim Hall Museum, and plenty of other attractions, Plymouth, Massachusetts is also home to the largest free standing granite monument in the world. But you have to make an effort to find it. The National Monument […]

When you live and travel fulltime in an RV, something you always have to be aware of is weight considerations. There’s an old saying that whenever something comes in, something else has to go out. That’s why every time Miss Terry purchased a couple of skeins of yarn, I tried to stay as far away […]

I got a lot of very good response to yesterday’s blog post, If I Had It To Do Over. Thank you to everybody who posted comments in the blog, sent me emails, or messages through Facebook about it. It always makes me feel good when I know I’m helping other people out, and hopefully helping […]

We were awake by 8:30 yesterday morning and spent the day piddling around here at the house, taking care of some little things we wanted to get done. Two things have been irritations for me since we bought our used F-150 pickup. One was that the windshield, in fact all the glass, had a film […]

A Beachy Day

We’ve been spending too much time at home and both had a touch of cabin fever, so Saturday evening I told Miss Terry that we needed to get up early the next day and go for a ride or do something. And then, wouldn’t you know it, I had a bad night and woke up […]

When we first started spending our winters in Florida, even before we bought our house, people kept telling us about how bad this region was for hurricanes and asking us if we weren’t afraid of getting caught in one. No, not at all. In our 17+ years of fulltime RVing we dealt with tornadoes, wildfires, […]

I’m So Stuffed!

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 […]

With the season upon us, I thought this would be a good time to revisit some thoughts I have shared in the past on popular snowbirds roosts that we and other RVers seek out when the weather up north starts to get cold. One of the first things new snowbirds have to learn is that […]
