Bored? Not Us!

Every time I go to Facebook I see posts from people who are complaining about being bored because they are shut in due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Terry and I were discussing that last night, and we just can’t relate to what they are talking about. For us, it’s life as usual, with a few […]

Before we had the internet, if you were single and looking for Miss or Mr. Right, you didn’t have a lot of choices if you didn’t feel like going to bars or churches, two popular meeting places for prospective partners. But back then a lot of newspapers in both big cities and small towns had […]

Do you remember the old Bill Engvall “Here’s Your Sign” bits about stupid people? Where is Bill when we need him? Because while toilet paper and hand sanitizer may be hard to find, we sure don’t have any shortage of stupid people these days! Yesterday we went out for the first time in two weeks […]

It’s Done!

I’ll tell you what, self-isolating may not be very exciting for some people but it sure has helped me get a lot of work done. Yesterday I beat my own personal record. I started working at noon and by the time I knocked off at 6:15 I had written (actually dictated) 12,050 words, and I […]

As many of you know, we have been fighting with blog issues for weeks now. Sometimes it takes me four, or five, or six more times to get the blog to post, if at all. And when it does post, sometimes readers can’t get to it. Occasionally if they are using something like Microsoft Edge […]

Yeah, that’s what I’ve been doing. And no, Santa Claus is not coming to town. Better than that, it’s another jolly chubby guy with a beard. And this one can fix things! Our friends Greg and Jan White will be here next week and we are really looking forward to seeing them because it’s been […]

I know it’s only been a couple of weeks since my last Q&A column, but I’ve been getting a lot of questions from readers that I thought might be of interest to some of you as well, so here we go. Q. I’m 72 and wondering if it’s “too late” for me, as much as […]

Cameras For RVers

One question I get a lot is what kind of camera does Terry use for the great photos she’s always taking for the blog and the Gypsy Journal while we were publishing it. She uses a Canon SX40 digital for most of our photo needs. We’ve also got a couple of small Olympus Stylus digital […]

We have been on the go so much lately that we really needed a day at home just to recharge our batteries and get caught up on things around here. So we never left the house yesterday, which was just fine with both of us. We slept in a bit and then after breakfast we […]

That Would Explain It

Thank you to the many blog readers who responded to my story about the phantom power showing on the voltmeters in our Winnebago motorhome, even after I disconnected all the batteries while putting it in storage. Quite a few of you suggested that the small solar panel on the roof might be giving us the […]
