Halloween has long since passed, but today I thought I would share a ghost story with you that I was reminded of on our recent visit to Ohio. My mother’s family lived in the charming little town of Maumee, on the banks of the Maumee River. This area is rich in history and was hotly […]

When I was a kid, I was so accident-prone that my father used to say I should probably get a job in a mattress factory. Then he would think about it for a minute and say no, I would more than likely knock a stack of mattresses off on top of me and smother myself. […]

Note: This story is from the July-August 2012 issue of the Gypsy Journal. One fact that a lot of people never think about in warfare is the often overwhelming task of dealing with enemy troops who have been captured or who have surrendered.

Miss Terry set a new record getting all of the envelopes stuffed with the new issue of the paper, and by yesterday afternoon the majority of them were in the mail. We’ll drop the remainder off at the post office and UPS this morning. The Gypsy Journal goes out to our subscribers several different ways, […]

We spent much of yesterday running around Celina getting things set up for our Ohio Gypsy Gathering rally. There are always a few dozen last minute things to be handled that we can’t do until we get to town. I checked in at the fairgrounds office and touched base with the manager to see if […]

We took a break from moving yesterday to get caught up on other chores.  We had several orders to fill and get mailed out, so that was the first order of business. Last year we signed up with Stamps.com to be able to print our own postage online, and we have found that the small […]

I’ve received a couple of requests from blog readers to share some information about banking while traveling around the country in an RV. Hopefully I can offer some useful insight into the topic. In my seminars for new RVers, I always suggest that while they may have a good relationship with their hometown bank, if […]

Yesterday was one of those days where it didn’t seem to me that we were all that busy, but looking back, I guess we were! In the morning I printed off several of our booklets to fill orders that came in with our last mail delivery, which was waiting for us when we returned here […]

We were out of bed earlier than usual yesterday morning and hit the ground running, and didn’t slow down until well past midnight. Sometimes there just are not enough hours in the day. We’re leaving Elkhart Campground today and driving 150 miles to Muskegon, Michigan for a week to spend some time visiting with my […]
