Some readers have asked me if we received the results of our COVID-19 antibody tests, which we took last Thursday at the Volusia County Fairgrounds. Yes, we got the results two days later, and both of us tested negative for having the antibody. Well, maybe we did since when we were getting the tests, the […]

There is so much doom and gloom in the world today and everybody seems to be uptight, angry, and frustrated with the way things are going. So I thought today we would just lighten things up a little bit and maybe I’ll give you a chuckle or two about some of the incidents that have […]

I have always enjoyed driving and I usually do most of it when we are on a trip. But after this trip, I may never drive again. Back on February 8, I was getting tired when we were about 100 miles from Phoenix and Miss Terry took the wheel. She is an excellent driver, whether […]

It seems like you can’t go onto any RV internet forum without seeing discussion after discussion about which toilet paper to use in RVs and what kind of chemicals to use in RV holding tanks. These debates go on and on and you would think nothing is more important than your potty. What always surprises […]

As most of you know, Terry and I are night owls. We seldom get to bed before 1:30 or 2 AM, then we usually lay there and cuddle for a few minutes, maybe half an hour, before we kiss each other goodnight and go to sleep. That was our routine Tuesday night. It was about […]

In a blog post a couple of days ago titled Building Stuff, I showed the cable and lock I had put together to secure our Honda generators when we have to use them outside during a power outage. At the time, I had the loops on each end of the cable secured with clamps and […]

You know that old saying about how you can’t please everybody? Apparently it’s true, no matter how hard you try. Even when you’re giving something away for free. After reading Friday’s blog, in which I asked readers to exercise patience and to not keep entering our weekly free contest over and over if they don’t […]

Except for some appointments with the doctor and the chiropractor, we haven’t been out much in the last week or so because it’s been so bloody hot here. If you live in Florida, just like people who live in Arizona and other places with intense heat, you learn to appreciate the benefits of staying home […]

Most RVers are really nice people, but they don’t make you take a personality test before they let you buy one of these things, and like every aspect of life, there are a few snobs out there, as well as clods and outright idiots. I’m rather well known in the RV world because of the […]

One of the good things about publishing the Gypsy Journal and this blog is that I was always being offered products to try out, with the manufacturer hoping for a good review. Of course, when I told them that if I liked the item I would tell the world why, but if I thought it […]
