When I get this close to the end of a book and the whole story is coming together, I don’t want to stop. I feel like a marathon runner that’s just seen the finish line. Okay, I made that part up. I have no idea what a marathon runner would feel like, and I don’t […]

Sometimes I want to find the person that invented the Internet and poke his eyes out. Does anybody know where Al Gore is hanging out these days? Yeah, yeah, I know he didn’t say exactly that, but somebody somewhere had to come up with the idea, and whoever that person is, I hate him (or […]

After all of the bad weather we had on Thursday, Friday dawned with blue skies and chilly temperatures. And wind. Lots of wind. But that’s okay, we weren’t driving an RV anywhere so we didn’t have to worry about that too much. It was a very busy day for us. It started out with somebody […]

Frustration City

My driver’s license may say I live in Edgewater, Florida, but yesterday I felt like I spent much of the day in Frustration City. That’s not a pleasant place to be, and I’m not a pleasant person to be around when I’m stuck there. The day started off on a bad note when I stepped […]

This Is Scary

We have all heard and used the term “Big Brother is watching” more than once. And while I’m not a conspiracy theorist, sometimes it’s scary just how much of what we do seems to be monitored by somebody, somewhere. All of us have had the experience of looking at something on the Internet and then […]

Happy Birthday Terry!

This is a very special day at our house because it is Miss Terry’s birthday. I won’t tell you how old she is, because I guess ladies aren’t supposed to want you to do that. But I will say that if she was a highway going from Chicago to LA, we’d all be getting our […]

With Miss Terry busy editing and proofing my new Big Lake mystery, yesterday was a catch-up day for me as I tried to get a handle on the emails and other things I had set aside during the push to get the book done. I got quite a bit accomplished, but not nearly as much […]

Not Feeling It

I know everybody is full of the Christmas spirit right now, busy shopping and wrapping presents and making plans for being with family or friends for the holiday. But here at our house, we are not really feeling it. We are just looking forward to all the holiday hype and hysteria being over with so […]

Chinese And Cake, Too!

Our normal schedule has always been for me to write late into the evening and we usually didn’t get to bed until about 1:30 AM or later. Then we would get up around 10 AM. But for a couple of months Terry and I were working hard at going to bed earlier and getting up […]

It’s Not Gonna Work

We made our entire living on the road for over 17 years, publishing the Gypsy Journal and our RV related guidebooks, vending at RV rallies, doing speaking gigs at RV events, blogging, and writing and self-publishing books. So I know little bit about what it takes to make the kind of money required to live […]
