At the end of December every year WordPress sends out an annual report to bloggers, telling them how much traffic their blog received in the past 12 months, where those visitors came from, which blog posts received the most attention, and a lot of other interesting data. My report came in yesterday, and looking it […]

About this time every year I get a report from WordPress on how this blog performed in the past twelve months, and this year’s report came in yesterday. The numbers are very nice. In fact, a note with the report said that this is one of the top read travel blogs published on a daily […]

Did You Miss Me?

I know I sure missed all of you over the last couple of days. It’s good to be back, and hopefully we’re here to stay. I’m keeping my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed just in case. The problem started Monday night when I tried to post Tuesday’s blog. It would not load up no matter […]

Oh what a difference a few days make! A week ago it looked and felt like a winter landscape here in northern Indiana. The sky was dark with clouds, the trees were bare, and we were running our RV’s furnace to keep warm. Yesterday it was nice enough for short sleeves, folks were out walking […]

Happy New Year to all of our friends and family. I hope 2013 is filled with much love, joy, and prosperity for all of you. I have to tell you that I’m very proud of myself. I have not had a drink in over 35 years, but last night I went out to a party […]

I thought it was about time for a new update from Gadget Boy, since it’s been a while. So what’s the latest on our tech toys? For the last couple of years I have used a Droid Incredible and overall I was very happy with it, except for the fact that the battery life was […]

Getting Some Work Done

I spent most of yesterday getting some work done. Actually, I got a lot of work done. At least by the end of the day, I felt like I had been working. Of course my work never involves any kind of physical labor if there is any way at all to avoid it. And since […]

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 […]

The Labor Day holiday weekend is here; the last blast of summer, and Elkhart Campground is starting to fill up with campers. Sure, there are a lot of RVers here too, but holiday weekends really bring out the campers and weekend warriors. You can tell the difference between campers and RVers by just walking around […]

The carnies are coming! The carnies are coming! Oh my, what should we do? The fairgrounds is gearing up for the annual Pima County Fair, April 14-24, and for the last few days carnival workers have been arriving at the fairgrounds RV park. In fact, as it turns out, the folks who I wrote about […]
