I have already shared some of our activities while we were in Ohio in previous blog posts but I thought I’d tell you a bit about our trip there in a couple of posts. We left Edgewater, Florida on Sunday, October 27, and took Interstate 95 north to Jacksonville, where we picked up U.S. Highway […]

Before I do anything else, I want to wish our dear friend Jan White a happy birthday. When we were fulltime RVers we had many adventures with Jan and her husband Greg from coast to coast. And they were very instrumental in making our Gypsy Journal rallies a success. Whatever needed doing, anything from collecting […]

I have shared this information before, but since I know men have short attention spans, I thought it might be time for a refresher course. Okay, fellows, this is for your eyes only. If your beautiful bride spots this we’re both in big trouble. These helpful hints are guaranteed to make things easier as you […]

When I was in the Army, so much of what we did was hurry up and wait. During training we would roll out of our bunks, get ready for the day, fall out in formation, and then wait while the drill sergeants or whoever was in charge decided to get around to inspecting us, harassing […]

It had been way too long since we had seen my son Travis and his pretty wife Geli, so we decided a road trip was in order to remedy that situation. What the heck, any road trip anywhere is always fun, right? On Thursday, the 6th, I had an appointment with the doctor in Deland, […]

When I get this close to the end of a book and the whole story is coming together, I don’t want to stop. I feel like a marathon runner that’s just seen the finish line. Okay, I made that part up. I have no idea what a marathon runner would feel like, and I don’t […]

Thank you everybody who emailed or posted comments wishing Terry good luck with the hyperbaric oxygen therapy I wrote about in yesterday’s blog. As it turns out, that doesn’t start yet. We had an appointment with the facility yesterday, and I thought that’s when they would do the treatment, but I was wrong. It was […]

After reading my blog post about using medical marijuana to control my back pain, I got an email from a longtime reader telling me that her husband suffered with pain for many years until his doctor suggested medical marijuana 12 years ago. Since they live in Colorado it was easy to get, and just like […]

After our very long day driving through West Virginia that I wrote about in yesterday’s blog, we were both exhausted and slept very well at the Hampton Inn in Wytheville, Virginia. One thing Terry and I discovered on the trip is that king size beds seem to be the norm in hotel rooms these days. […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we took a road trip to visit family and friends and do some genealogy research, along with gathering lots of stories about interesting places to visit for my blog readers. Rather than cram too much into one very long blog, I will be talking about the overall details of […]
