Could it be true? Is it possible? Has the spell been broken? It looks like we’re going to have a decent winter here in Florida. We had a few windy, rainy days when we were over in Titusville, and we’re supposed to have some scattered rain today, but overall, the curse that follows me around seems to have gone away. If this keeps up, I may even put on my Speedo and head for the beach! 🙂

Of course, now that I’ve said that, we’ll probably wake up next week to snowdrifts in Miami!

I appreciate all of you who wrote in response to yesterday’s blog, and urged me to keep on doing exactly what I’m doing, and not to change a thing. I don’t see how I could do anything else, so it’s back to business as usual.

Our larder was getting low, so yesterday Miss Terry made a shopping trip, while I stayed home and wrote. She came home with enough groceries to keep us fed for a week or two, and the ingredients for a nice Thanksgiving dinner here at home. And even the fixings for one of her delicious pecan pies! Yummy 🙂

Besides working on my new book, I’ve also been doing some work on our upcoming Arizona Gypsy Journal Rally, which will be March 5-9 in Yuma. The seminar schedule is coming together quite well, and I hope to get a preliminary schedule on our Rally Registration Page soon. If you are a vendor and want a seminar at the rally, you really need to register soon and submit your seminar request. Otherwise, the schedule will be full and you may get shut out.

We have had a lot of requests from people for full hookup sites, or for special parking close to the main buildings, with at least 30 amp power and water. The fairgrounds is not an RV park, and while everybody should have at least 20 amp power, people need to come prepared for rally parking, not a campground experience. We do have a few 30 and 50 amp power hookups near the main buildings, but those are reserved for people with special needs, who have a valid handicapped parking permit, on a first come basis. If you need power for a CPAP machine or to charge a power chair, we’ll do our very best to accommodate you. But the sooner you can arrive at the fairgrounds, the better. We  plan to start parking RVs at 1 p.m. on Sunday, the 4th, and my advice is to be there by then if you need special parking.

For the rest of you, who have 50 amp RVs and don’t believe that you can live with anything less, yes, you really can. Terry and I, Greg and Jan White, and Tom and Barb Westerfield, our pre-rally crew, go into the fairgrounds a week or more early to make rally preparations, and we all live on 20 amp power while we’re there, even though we all have 50 amp coaches. We’ve been doing this rally thing a long time, and trust me, we’ll make sure you survive for the four or five nights you’ll be at the fairgrounds without full hookups. We haven’t lost anybody yet! 🙂

Today our friends Russ and Patty Frady are going to stop over to pick up a bundle of sample copies of the Gypsy Journal to distribute in their travels, and we’re looking forward to visiting with them for a little while. I can use the break.

Bad Nick is full of the holiday spirit, and he wants to tell you all about it in his new Bad Nick Blog post,  I Go Into Scrooge Mode. Check it out and leave a comment.
