Well, it just wasn’t our time to buy a new motorhome. The diesel pusher we have been looking at has sold, and someone is going down the road in an excellent coach. We’re disappointed, but we know that when the time is right, we’ll find the right deal that will work for us.

Meanwhile, life goes on, and we’ve been very busy. We have been here in Tucson almost a month, and we haven’t had the time to do half of what we had hoped to get done. Where does the time go?

A nice couple named Ted and Donna Wallin had volunteered at our Ohio Gypsy Gathering Rally last year, and a while back they dropped by while we were gone and left their business card. As it turns out, they are staying at Prince of Tucson, the RV park right next door to us here at Tra-Tel.

Yesterday, Terry and I stopped by Prince of Tucson to drop off a sample bundle of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and I asked the two women working in the office what site our friends were in.

It took me a while to ask my question, because they were involved in a lengthy conversation based upon “You think your surgery was terrible? Wait until I tell you about mine!” Somewhere between an inflamed gall bladder and a complicated hysterectomy, I interrupted, only to be told that Ted and Donna had already moved on.

Back at the bus, I called the Wallins to tell them I was sorry we had been so busy and did not have the chance to connect. As it turns out, they were still at Prince of Tucson, and they came over for a short visit. I’m sure that the two ladies working at the RV park didn’t mean to give me false information. It’s probably all of those lingering effects from the anesthesia.

Speaking of the Ohio Gypsy Gathering, we have opened registration for this year’s rally, which will be September 28 through October 2 at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina. Click this registration link and reserve your site now!

In mid-afternoon, our dear friends Orv and Nancy Hazelton arrived here at Tra-Tel RV Park, in preparation for an appointment with a nearby RV shop to have a new refrigerator installed today. Once they were parked and hooked up, they came by to visit for a while, and then we all piled into our van and had a nice dinner at Terry’s favorite Mexican restaurant, La Fuente. It’s always fun to have time to spend with Orv and Nancy, and to hear about their RV travels.

Back at the bus, I sorted through submissions to our new Todays Hero Blog and selected one to run for today. I have had several people write to tell me that they have someone they wish to nominate for the honor, but they don’t think they are very good writers. No problem, I will try to work with you to edit and rewrite your submission if necessary. Don’t let the heroes in your life miss out on the recognition they deserve because you don’t think you can write. Between the two of us, we can get the job done.

Thought For The Day – A friend is a person who tells you all the nice things about you that you didn’t even know yourself.
