As I said in a blog post a couple of days ago, our family has a lot of birthdays in April, and today is my granddaughter Destiny’s. Can you believe this beautiful newborn baby is thirteen today? Destiny is a very intelligent, very loving young lady who makes us proud all the time. But she […]

There is a saying that we lived by during our 18+ years as fulltime RVers – that we always made our plans in Jello so anytime we wanted to we could shake it up and rewrite them as needed. And even though we hung up the keys over three years ago, we are still shaking […]

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. This is the third in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

I never trust anything the weatherman tells me because long experience has shown that they can point to their colorful maps and forecast anything they want and make all kinds of predictions, but in reality all they can really do is tell you what happened yesterday.

I said in yesterday’s blog that I had an appointment with a specialist yesterday afternoon. This was to see if we can figure out what is causing the sharp stabbing pain I get in my right temple, and to further investigate what caused my episode of dizziness and blurred vision in my right eye several […]

Every so often I hear from RVers who are not fulltimers wanting to know about establishing an address with a mail forwarding service and then buying an RV out-of-state and registering it in one of the more RV friendly states like Texas, South Dakota, or Florida. Some of them plan to leave their homes and […]

We made some wonderful memories and met some amazing people during our years as fulltime RVers. If nothing else, there was never a dull moment! The other day our friend Lynette Milligan McHenry had this photo on her Facebook wall, and it sure got a lot of laughs. This was during our Indiana Gypsy Journal […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that after the air conditioning repair company we called in July never got back to us with an estimate for a new unit, the folks we had come out to get it running again on Tuesday followed through and gave us not one, but three estimates on the spot. That […]

Never underestimate the power of positive sniveling. I wrote in yesterday’s blog that I had been chained to my desk cranking out words in my next John Lee Quarrels mystery novel and that I needed a break. That’s kind of how we do things; we work hard for a few days, and then we’ll take […]
