Don’t ask me how I did it, but somehow, I managed to misplace an entire day! How does one do that?

I knew that our two weeks at the Orlando Thousand Trail preserve was up on the 28th and we’d be leaving for two weeks. But for some reason, all along I thought the 28th was Tuesday, not today. So when it finally dawned on me yesterday afternoon, I had to rearrange my mental schedule. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?

We had planned to do some paddling and some playing, and I was even thinking about buying a fishing license while we were here. I want my missing day back! 🙁

I spent all day yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, except for a few short breaks. Subscriber Meredith Hathaway stopped by to introduce herself and say hello. We always enjoy meeting our readers and making new friends. We had a nice visit, and when she left, it was back to work.

My new chair is working out very well so far, and even after working at my desk for over eleven hours, I was still comfortable, and ready to go on longer. It’s times like this that Miss Terry loves saying “ I told you so.” 🙂

Our plan today is to go to the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground in Bushnell, which is about 45 or 50 miles from here, and we’ll stay there a week or maybe two. Then we‘re due to come back here to the Thousand Trails December 12. By then I’ll have the paper done, and hopefully be down to the final stretch on my new mystery, so we can finally get out and play.

A number of people who have Nook e-book readers have asked me how they can read Big Lake, since it is not listed on Barnes & Noble. All you have to do is click this link to the e-book’s listing on Smashwords and you can download it there.

While we are at Bushnell, we hope to get over to the huge Webster Flea Market. We’re not looking for anything in particular, but it’s always fun to wander around and see what the vendors have for sale. And who knows, we might even find some little treasure we can’t live without! Or not. 🙂

I also want to get down to St. Petersburg, to touch base with my nephews and niece there, while we’re in the area. Last year they had a cookout to welcome their long lost uncle. Hmmm… I wonder if they’ll do that again. Free food is always good, right? 🙂 And my buddy Al Hesselbart is supposed to get down to Bushnell this week too. I hope he brings his credit card, there’s a great Chinese buffet over in Brooksville with my name on it.

  1. Loosing days is why I have a clock that tells me the time, day of the week, and date. Now if I could just remember to look at it. 🙂

  2. Hate it when we lose a day. But then again I have found that every day is Sat. being retired so how can you lose a day that way? Anyway, just a word of warning, considering leaving Gulf Shores here on the 1st of Dec. and arrive probably the same evening in Sumter Oaks. May have to come and visit the real Gypsy.


  3. Don’t forget that people who don’t own e-readers can download your book to their computers and get Kindle for PC free from Amazon. Sometimes I use that reader so I can knit and read at the same time, then I sync my location in the book and go back to reading it on my Kindle.

  4. Nick, loosing a day is the first sign of Oldtimers, I have had t for years, but do not worry sometimes it is a non threatening condition we all get as we age. Happy to hear you like your new chair.
