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 […]

What Rant?

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 […]

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 […]

Happy Birthday Destiny

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 […]
