Terry and I seldom go anywhere on holiday weekends, just to avoid the traffic and the crowds. But this weekend I think we’re going to take it a step further and turn off the telephones, keep the blinds closed, and hibernate until Tuesday, because both of us are just so darn tired. As most of […]

I have one more page to put together and then insert a cover photo on the front page and I will be finished with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Once that’s done, I’ll print it out for Miss Terry to proof a final time, make any necessary corrections, and get it ready to […]

It’s been a writing marathon for the last few days for me. I got 8,000 words done Tuesday, and another 8,000 yesterday, and finished my newest book, Big Lake Tragedy. Today I will give it a final read-through and make any corrections that I see, then I will print it out so Miss Terry can […]

I’m way behind on my latest Big Lake book, so most of my time lately has been spent at my desk trying to play catch-up. Between Sunday and Wednesday I managed to get about 10,000 words done, and then another 3,800 words yesterday. That puts me well past the halfway point and it’s rolling right […]

And today we have to take it back to the dealer for its 5,000 mile oil change and checkup. When I called to make the appointment, the service people were somewhat amazed […]

It seemed like every day for the last week or two the weatherman has been predicting rain for our area. And though there has been some rain come down around us, all we have had here is a brief shower or two that lasted for a couple of minutes. But that all changed yesterday. A […]

It’s been pretty hot here for the last week or so, and we have stayed close to home for most of it. Terry is involved in a weaving project, and I’ve been working on my new Big Lake mystery book. I’m at 16,000 words now and moving right along. Speaking of books, that’s the subject […]
