The Arizona Good Sam rally is going on at the Yuma Fairgrounds this week, and yesterday I spent some time visiting with the rally staff and the vendors who are here for the rally. Most of them will be staying over for our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally next week, and since a couple were vendors […]

When I was a younger person, I thought I would never get old, and didn’t want to. What fun could that be? Now that I have almost six decades under my belt, I realize just how dumb I was back then. This is absolutely the best time of my life. When I look at the […]

Sometimes it can be very frustrating trying to plan an RV rally. There are a thousand details that have to be handled behind the scenes, like pre-ordering enough donuts for everybody every morning, but not ordering too many and having them go to waste. Or making sure we have enough two-way radios for the parking […]

We’re getting down to the wire on our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally, and everybody on our advance team is busy, busy, busy! The rally starts a week from today, and we still have a lot to get done. Miss Terry and Barbara Westerfield have been locked to their computer keyboards, making lists, setting up registration […]

My pal Greg White and I have to stop spending so much time together. If you read my blog and Greg’s blog for yesterday, you might think you are experiencing déjà vu. We spent the day together, went to dinner together, and wrote almost the same blog, even down to the picture! We even used […]

Yesterday was our last full day in Apache Junction, and it was a busy one, as many of our days have been lately, and as they will be for the next several weeks. Terry’s sister Lisa dropped by during the morning for a last visit with us. We probably won’t see Lisa again until next […]

At least a half dozen different people have written to ask when and where our next Eastern rally will be, and when they can register for it. We won’t have anything "official" on our website about the Eastern rally until the Western rally is over. We tried that once, and had too many people trying […]

Sunday was another ugly weather day, here in Apache Junction, and across most of northern Arizona. The wind had eased up a lot, but it was cold and gray, and rained off and on all morning. Sometime in the afternoon the clouds started to break up and we were seeing blue sky, but it was […]

I ate so much yesterday that I may not go near a refrigerator for at least a week! Well, okay, but at least not for another hour or two! Miss Terry was up early, making cookies and carrot cake to take to her sister Lisa’s house for a family dinner to celebrate her parents’ birthdays. […]

Playing Catch Up

We spent yesterday playing catch up, trying to put a lot of paperwork and household chores that had accumulated during our trip from Florida to Arizona behind us. It always seems like there’s a pile of laundry to be done, a stack of orders to log in and fill, and a backlog of e-mails to […]
