Thursday and Friday night were wonderful for me, no backaches whatsoever, and I slept soundly. But as I was getting dressed Saturday morning, I bent over to put a sock on and was suddenly hit by the most excruciating pain I had felt in a long, long time. It felt like it did before my […]

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, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

RVers love blogging! These electronic newsletters provide us with a way to share our traveling adventures with our friends and families back home, and to keep in touch with other RVers we meet along the way. It’s also a diary of our daily lives  and a way to look back  on our adventures. Blogs allow […]

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 […]

Let’s Try Again

Today we’re going to try again to get our motorhome’s two piece windshield replaced. We had an appointment for last Friday but it was cancelled at the last minute, so hopefully we can get it done. Both sides have big cracks in them and I really want to get them done before we head south […]

It’s very often true that you get what you pay for. Sometimes when you make a purchase, it’s better to spend a little money up front for value that will last you a long time. A good example is Tilley hats. The first time I saw one I thought that they were a waste of […]

It started raining a little after midnight and continued for most of Saturday, like we needed more of it. The ground is saturated and water is standing in puddles everywhere. And we have more forecast for today. The rain didn’t really impact us because we’ve been busy labeling and stuffing envelopes pretty much nonstop. Except […]

We were so worn out from being up early three days in a row that I set yesterday’s blog to automatically post at midnight and we were in bed by 11:30 Monday night. And even though we slept well in spite of a heavy downpour sometime in the night, we were still tired when we […]

Where did yesterday go? I think I must have blinked and missed it. It was like, I woke up, I brushed my teeth, and ten minutes later it was time to brush my teeth and go back to bed. Of course, it didn’t help that I was up until almost 3 a.m. making notes of […]

I had a sense of déjà vu yesterday when I got an e-mail from Google’s AdSense department, informing me that my account has been disabled because it is not in compliance with their terms of service. I’ve had AdSense ads on my blogs for years now and earn several hundred dollars a month from them, […]

Losing Weight

Except for a couple of trips out to the dumpster with trash, we never left the motorhome all weekend, which was just as well because it was windy most of the time. I’ve not sure if we’ll drive out of here when we leave next week, or attach a pair of wings to the Winnebago […]

Déjà Vu

Yesterday was a déjà vu kind of day. I spent most of it writing, and Terry spent it doing some chores she wanted to get out of the way and doing some research on weaving. We had a mellow music channel on TV for background noise. Some authors say they can’t work with any noise […]

It Won’t Be Long Now

Yes, it won’t be long now. Christmas is coming up fast, and Miss Terry still won’t tell me what she wants for Christmas. I ask and she just says she doesn’t need anything. I keep reminding her that I didn’t ask her what she needed, I asked what she wanted. Terry’s not into jewelry or […]

We’re Getting There

Well, none of my friends or relatives called to tell me they had won the big Powerball drawing and wanted to split the money with me, so I spent yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Yeah, I know, you heard that before. That’s pretty much all we’ve been doing this week. […]

The Day After

With the Ohio rally behind us, we slept in yesterday morning, and when we did wake up we spent another hour so just snuggling and enjoying being together after our busy week. It was nice not to have to jump out of bed and be rushing off to do something. When we did get up, […]

Several years ago my cousin Berni Frees and her husband Rocky tried out the fulltime RV lifestyle for a while and we spent some wonderful times together on the road. Early on, we were all sitting under their motorhome’s awning at Elkhart Campground and somebody came by with a copy of one of my RV […]

Yesterday was a good day to be an author. At least, it was a good day for me, as an author. 🙂 I started writing early yesterday afternoon, and except for a couple of short breaks I kept at it until about 10:30 PM. By the time I finally stopped, so I could start working […]

A Busy Birthday

Miss Terry wanted me to pass on her thanks to the many, many people who posted comments on the blog, sent e-mails, or posted birthday greetings on Facebook. I don’t think she realized how many fans she has out there, but you all really made her feel special. Thank you. We left Elkhart Campground a […]

Yes, It Is About Money

I have always maintained that there is a group called the National Coalition of the Weird and Strange, and that one of the things they have to do to qualify for membership is to come and irritate me. Yesterday somebody suggested we stop selling our CD with our seven guides to free campgrounds, fairgrounds camping, […]

Still Here

Well, we’re still here at the Show Low Elks Lodge campground. The wind hasn’t blown us away yet and they haven’t come to run us out because of all the RVs that were supposed to be arriving. In fact, we have a total of six RVs here, which includes us and the campground host. That’s […]
