I’m back

I apologize for no blog yesterday. It’s very seldom that I miss posting it, but this was one of those times when it just didn’t happen. As most of you know, Terry and I are night owls. We usually go to bed somewhere around 1:30 or 2 a.m., but for some reason, about 8 o’clock […]

Another Rainy Day

Yesterday was another rainy day for us here on the Central Florida coast. And just like the day before, we had periods of hard rain and at other times it was no more than a light sprinkle, but it seemed to come down for most of the day. I was perfectly happy with that because […]

“Grandpa what did you do during the big coronavirus isolation of 2020?” Well, kiddies, grandpa didn’t act a fool like some people, running around grabbing all the toilet paper and cleaning supplies he could find and hoarding them, or hanging out with crowds of people at the beaches and bars. No, grandpa was home writing. […]

Is It Monday Yet?

Most working people dread Monday morning because it is the start of another long work week. Mondays don’t bother me because I work every day of the week. Some days I work more than others, but every day I at least write a blog, and I am usually working on a book, or working on […]

I guess when you’ve been fulltiming for as many years as we have and you publish an RV newspaper and blog, people seem to think that you’re some kind of expert. We all know better, but it doesn’t stop people from asking me questions. I try to answer them to the best of my ability, […]

A Lot Going On

It was still dark when Terry’s sister Lisa picked her up yesterday morning for the drive to the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale. Her dad came though his biopsy fine. There was a concern that it could have collapsed his lung, in which case he would have been kept in the hospital. But that didn’t happen […]

Before I do anything else, I want to take a minute to wish my daughter Tiffany happy birthday. I love you, Tiff, and I’m looking forward to seeing you in a few days. Yesterday I made the final changes to the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and uploaded it to the printer’s server. It […]

I spent quite a bit of time over the weekend finalizing things for our upcoming Eastern Gypsy Gathering rally in Elkhart, Indiana. Can you believe that it’s less than a month away? It seems like we were just wrapping up our Western rally in Yuma, and here we are halfway across the country getting ready […]

Many people have asked me how I come up with something new to write about every day in the blog. Usually it’s no problem; I write about our travels when we’re on the move, and about the RV lifestyle in general when we’re stationary for  awhile. And sometimes I stumble across something totally unexpected I […]

Yesterday was our last day in Apache Junction, and as much as we enjoy visiting with Terry’s parents, Pete and Bess Weber, we’re ready to get back up to Show Low, where it is a little cooler, and we can get another grandkid fix. I spent part of yesterday doing some bookwork and maintenance on […]

When I first heard about Apple’s new tablet computer, I have to admit that my first reaction was “So what? I already have a desktop computer, a laptop computer, and a netbook computer. What can the iPad do that they can’t?” Then I saw my first iPad, and my immediate reaction was “I want one!”  […]

Miss Terry is like the Energizer Bunny. Give her a big job and she just keeps going and going until it’s finished. Hardly taking a break for even a few minutes, she waded through the mail duties and put the job behind her like it was nothing. I have no idea how she does it. […]

It has been raining for two days now, and I’m sick and tired of it. I know the farmers need the rain to make their crops grow, and it makes for really green lawns and golf courses. But I’m not a farmer, I don’t have a lawn, and I don’t play golf. So right now […]

Spin Doctors

I love how the spin doctors can make anything sound good, as long as you don’t look any deeper than the surface. The consortium of investors that took over Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. operations and has named their new company Fleetwood RV, Inc., is sending press releases far and wide, boasting that they are hiring 650 […]

We have enjoyed our week in Muskegon, Michigan but sadly, it’s time to leave and get on down the road. But we sure have had a wonderful time in this friendly lakeside community. We stayed at Fisherman’s Landing, a city owned marina and campground, where our back-in RV site had a concrete pad with picnic […]
