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 […]

A Sunday Drive

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 […]

What did I do yesterday? Darned near nothing, and I don’t feel the least bit guilty about it. I don’t think either one of us realized how tired and worn out we really were, but with nothing we had to do and nowhere we had to be yesterday, we stayed in bed even later than […]

If it seems like all I am doing lately is wishing women happy birthday, it’s because a lot of ladies who are very important to me all have birthdays in the space of seven days. Sunday was daughter-in-law Geli’s birthday, Monday it was daughter Tiffany’s, and today is Destiny’s, our youngest granddaughter. And there are […]

The first time I met Miss Terry I was impressed not only with her beauty and her intelligence, but also the fact that she was an independent, capable woman who could do anything she set her mind to. In the 10 years or so that we were friends before we became a couple, and the […]

Is It Monday Yet?

Most working people dread Monday morning because it is the start of another long work week. Mondays don’t bother me because I work every day of the week. Some days I work more than others, but every day I at least write a blog, and I am usually working on a book, or working on […]

I called my buddy Greg White last night, and assuming you can believe him, he is still alive. I think it’s probably true, I can’t think of any reason why Greg would lie to me about that. Now, that thing about him and Annette Funicello making out in the backseat of his dad’s Rambler station […]

Here’s another tale from the Nick Happens file. I have always thought of myself as a man of the world. As a kid we moved around a lot and I was exposed to all kinds of people and their peculiarities. A few weeks after I graduated from high school, I was wearing a green uniform […]
