There are some people who come into our lives and stay a while before moving on, and over time they become no more than a faint memory. And there are others who make an impact that lasts forever. One of those people is a man named Gary Chandler. Gary’s grandparents were good friends of my […]

Enough Already!

I know I won’t get any sympathy from my friends and relatives who live up north, but here it is – enough with the cold, already! I’m freezing my butt off! We went from daytime temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s, with nights in the upper 60s, down to daytime temps in the low 50s, and […]

Crossing Them Off

I spent most of yesterday crossing chores of my To Do list, and even though we had a little setback, I actually got a lot accomplished. That’s always a good feeling. The first order of business was to call some of the commercial mail services in the area to find one to handle mailing out […]

We are into our annual slowdown in our printing schedule. We try to have each issue of the Gypsy Journal printed and mailed by the middle of the month preceding the issue date, and five issues a year, we are usually able to meet that deadline. But every year, when it’s time to print the […]

Well, I didn’t make my goal of getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished yesterday, but I’m close enough that I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Unless that light is from an oncoming train, we’re still in good shape. Today I’ll put the finishing touches on the new issue, […]

It was a busy weekend, what with getting the bus sold, cleaning up the mess inside our motorhome from the burglary, and dealing with all of those issues. Then, yesterday morning we woke up to an inch or so of snow on the ground and very slick roads. It was only ten miles from where […]

Getting to know other RVers is one of the best parts of this lifestyle! For the last few days, Bruce and Linda Fay have been parked next to us at Elkhart Campground in their nice looking older Itasca Sunrise motorhome. Yesterday before they left to go back home to Michigan, they stopped over to say […]

The title of today’s blog says it all. That’s how I feel sometimes, including right now. About the time I think I have a good handle on something, some unforeseen and unexplainable problem shows up. After a couple of years of experimenting, we launched our digital edition of the Gypsy Journal several issues back, and […]

Actually, we had more than just a single ray of sunshine yesterday. The heavy clouds that have been hanging over northern Indiana broke up, and by mid-day we actually had blue sky again! After days of gloom, it sure was a treat! And while we’re not suffering under a heat wave, the temperature is actually […]

We’re getting down to the wire and I’m hoping we can get everything done here in Elkhart that we need to before we leave. I’m wrapping up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and hopefully will have it done by tonight so we can take it up to our printer in Michigan on Monday. […]
