I’ve had a chance to read over all of the feedback forms from our Yuma rally, and Terry has most of the paperwork wrapped up. Much of the results are about what I expected, though some are a bit surprising. There are always a lot of feedback forms that tell us we’re doing a good […]

I’m Back

I appreciate everybody’s understanding when I didn’t post a blog yesterday. I was just worn out physically and mentally from the rally, and when I sat down at the keyboard nothing would come out. But I got a good night’s sleep Friday night, and didn’t do much yesterday, and I’m back and raring to go. […]

Yesterday was the last full day of the Arizona Gypsy Journal rally, and after coffee and donuts this morning, everybody will be pulling out and hitting the road. Some will be staying in nearby RV parks, others will be heading back to their home bases in different parts of the country, and others will be […]

Yesterday was another busy day at the Gypsy Journal Rally here in Yuma, Arizona. I did three seminars; Laugh Your Way Across The USA, Highway History and Back Road Mystery, and Birth Of A Bestseller. Presenting seminars is one of my favorite parts of an RV rally and one of the things I really miss […]

If you heard a lot of noise coming out of Yuma, Arizona last night, it wasn’t the sound of jet fighters roaring out of the Marine Air Station, it was the sound of our hard working volunteers snoring. As hard as they all worked, I know they were really sawing logs! The parking crew was […]

And The Wind Blew

It’s often windy here in Arizona, and since we’ve been in Yuma we’ve had occasional winds that lasted a few hours and then died down. But Thursday and Friday the wind really increased and it never seemed to let up. It has been blowing so hard that the thick welcome mat outside our door has […]

It’s cold. The wind is blowing hard. It even rained for a while. Yes indeed, Nick is in Yuma! Can you believe that my perpetual black cloud caught up with us already? If you see folks selling snow tires on street corners here in the desert, don’t be surprised. It was bound to happen. Miss […]

Miss Terry’s Smile

There’s nothing I love to see more in the world than Miss Terry’s smile. Even after all of these years together it melts me every time I see it. And I sure got to see it yesterday! Terry loves working with fibers; yarn, wool, silk, you name it and she loves it. She’s a very […]

Slugfest

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I spent most of the day being a slug, just napping on the couch. The slugfest continued Saturday. I tried to get some work done but my head was just too foggy to concentrate. So it was back to the couch. I shouldn’t be tired, because pretty much all […]

Guess what we did yesterday morning? Oh, get your mind out of the gutter! 🙂 We woke up a little after 9 a.m., said “I love you”and rolled over and went right back to sleep! It’s been so long since we could sleep in that it was a real treat, and we really needed it. […]
