After reading the blog post about our encounter with an armed burglar in our motorhome that I linked to in yesterday’s blog, three different people emailed to ask me why I didn’t shoot the burglar once I disarmed him and he was running away. The simple answer is, he was running away. He was no […]

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 […]

She’s Doing Great

We spent several hours at the rehab facility with Beverly yesterday as they put her through her paces and showed us how much progress she has made since her major surgery last week, and explained what the follow-up plan is when she is released from the hospital next week.

With everything that has been going on in our lives lately there has not been a lot of time for writing or weaving, or much of anything else. But while Beverly has been in the hospital things are not quite as busy. We make the trip over to see her two or three times a […]

Most of us have experienced it a time or two in our lives, some of us more often than others. I call it the spidey sense. That feeling that something just isn’t right, though we can’t figure out what is wrong or why we are feeling that way. I’ve learned to be aware and heed […]

In our nearly two decades of fulltime RV travel we made it a point to get off the interstates whenever possible to travel the two lane roads. The pace is slower and you will get a chance to see many wonderful small towns and the treasures they hold. One such treasure was the DeQuincy Railroad […]

Because we lost so much time running around to doctor appointments this last week, yesterday Miss Terry and Beverly spent most of yesterday proofing my new book, Sweet Tea And Jesus. With all of that done and the corrections made, I sent it off to my third and final proofreader. It won’t be long now, […]

One of the most valuable lessons I learned in college is that we train people how to treat us. A psychology professor called a young woman to the front of the class and complimented her on a paper she had turned in, telling her it was one of the best he had seen in several […]

Fun With Telemarketers

We all hate them. Those annoying calls from someone that immediately launches into a spiel about the good news they have for you. They’re going to reduce your credit card debt, extend your car’s warranty, protect your investment in your house with pest control service, or whatever they are hustling. Most people just hang up […]

The one thing we miss most about the fulltime RV lifestyle is the many friends we made in our travels around the country. It was always fun to arrive at an RV park or rally and see people we knew and have the opportunity to reconnect with them. A few of our RVing buddies have […]
