We slept in yesterday morning and then spent most of the day doing paper work and little chores around the motorhome. In mid-afternoon Terry’s dad called to tell us that our mail had arrived, so we drove over to their house and picked it up, then spent a little bit of time visiting. From there we went by the bank to make a deposit, stopped at WalMart to pick up a couple of things, and had dinner at Sourdough Pizza, one of our favorite places in this area.
After a long hard struggle, I think Terry has turned a corner and is starting to feel better again. She still has a lot of discomfort, but overall, there has been a marked improvement. Thank you again to everybody for all of your well wishes and concern during this very rough time.
Okay I’ve goofed off long enough, it’s time to buckle down and get back to work! I’ll be working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal for the next few days getting it ready to send to the printer sometime next week.
I’ve been toying with the idea of brushing off some of the stories from a few years back and updating them for the paper. We get a lot of letters asking if we ever plan to do a story on so and so or such and such, and I write back that we covered that in our first or fifth or eighth year on the road. But a lot of our current subscribers weren’t yet with us back then and would like to read about those places. I usually bank stories for future issues when we’re traveling and covering a lot of territory, and to help fill in empty spaces when we have been sitting still for a while. What do you think? Would you like to read stories about places we visited in the past, or should I continue with just new, current locations?
Who doesn’t like antique RVs? If you are going to be in the Midwest in a month or so, make plans to attend the Vintage RV Show at S&H Campground in Greenfield, Indiana May 4-6. The registration fee is $20, which includes an RV site with water, electric, and WiFi service.
This is just an example of the many types of special events all over the country that RVers can attend. No matter what you are interested in, it’s happening somewhere. We know RVers who regularly attend bluegrass music festivals, antique tractor shows, racing events, sand castle festivals, quilt shows, and other different kinds of events that interest them all over the country. This year we plan to attend a couple of fiber festivals where Miss Terry can learn more about spinning, weaving, and other fiber arts. We have found festivals everywhere from Colorado, to Michigan, to New England, so we have plenty to choose from. And of course, I can’t pass up a gun show or car show. There’s no excuse for getting bored when you have wheels under your house!
Thought For The Day – Live now. Make now always the most precious time. Now will never come again.
