Just a short blog today. We are in Jacksonville, where Terry has been going through a series of tests and medical exams at Mayo. If all goes according to plan we will be home tonight and the blogs will be back on track. I am going to be making a change to the blog schedule. […]

Note: I have already shared some of our activities while we were in Ohio and the trip there from Florida in previous blog posts. Now I will do several posts telling you a bit about our trip home. After our night in Charleston, West Virginia, the next morning we got on Interstate 64, a toll […]

I’m not quite over my cold yet but I think I have pretty much the worst of it behind me, except for a nagging cough that doesn’t want to let go. But Terry’s a couple of days behind me in the cycle and feeling crappy. I spent most of yesterday working on the new issue of […]

Did you know there are three kinds of bees in the world? There are worker bees, drones, and the queen bee. The queen bee has it made. The rest of the bees in the hive are born to serve her. After all, she’s the queen, right? The worker bees are other female bees who do […]

Well, okay not the whole gang, but a lot of our pals are here at the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve or are headed this way. Yesterday afternoon Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour arrived, and they came by to visit for a while during the evening. I always enjoy picking their brains, because […]

Until you’ve been in old town St. Augustine, Florida on Halloween evening, you just have not seen Halloween! We spent the day playing tourist in America’s oldest city, and saw everything from pirates and soldiers to zombies, witches and werewolves. I think they were dressed up for Halloween? Maybe that’s just the way folks roll […]

Okay, I’ll be honest, I sniveled a bunch! But most of it wasn’t out loud. I think that’s an improvement. We left the Hershey Thousand Trails Preserve yesterday morning, stopped for fuel, and then headed south toward the Harbor View Outdoor World Resort in Colonial Beach, Virginia, a distance of about 200 miles. It wasn’t […]

I have managed to get a lot done on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal in the last couple of days, and I only have eight pages left to go. Barring any unexpected problems, I’ll easily make my deadline by the end of the week. I’m looking forward to getting it done so I […]

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I had purchased a new Garmin 465T trucker model GPS, and a couple of blog readers asked me to let them know what I thought of the new unit, after using it for a while. After traveling about 1,000 miles with the GPS. I have to say that […]

My wife is a very hard woman to shop for, because she doesn’t want very much in the way of material things. Whenever I ask her what she wants for Christmas, her birthday, our anniversary, or whatever, she always says she has everything she wants. Once in a while, she’ll let me buy her a […]
