More Of The Same

Most of yesterday was more of the same thing it has been for the last few days, working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. I got eleven more pages done, and have sixteen left to go. You’re probably getting tired of hearing the same thing every day, but right now we’re not on the road, so I don’t have much new to tell you. Sorry.

Sometime in the afternoon we took a break to run in to The Villages so Terry could pick up some stuff at WalMart. Yes, the dreaded Wally World. Given my commitment to avoid big box stores until well after the commercialism that once was Christmas is over, I stayed out in the Explorer and read my Kindle.

Actually, Terry said it wasn’t all that busy. The longest part of the shopping trip was the time she spent waiting in line to check out because the clerk was very slow. The other line is always faster, right?

By the time she was done it was pushing 5 PM and we were both hungry. There is only so much leftover turkey I can handle in a week, so we stopped at Golden Corral for dinner. We have eaten at a lot of Golden Corral buffets across the country, and while many are very good, others are just so-so at best. This one was pretty good, the service was decent and the food was fresh.

Back at home, I worked on the paper until about 11 PM while Terry worked on a crochet project. One of her favorite movies of all time, Somewhere in Time, was on one of the movie channels so we watched that. Definitely a chick flick. The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island looked a lot better in the movie than it did during our visit several years ago.

Our pal Al Hesselbart, historian for the RV Museum up in Elkhart, Indiana, is spending the winter at an RV park in Bushnell, about twenty miles from here. He’s going to come by today and we’ll swap a few lies and visit for a while.

If you’re going to be in this area in early December, don’t forget the TechnoGeek Learning Rally at Paradise Oaks RV Resort in Bushnell December 2-9. Put on by TechnoRV and Geeks on Tour, it will be devoted to all of the electronic goodies we all love, but don’t have a clue how to get the most out of. There will be seminars on digital cameras, Picasa, Blogger, Smartphones, RV Electrical Safety, Computer Safety, Windows, and more. Check out the rally’s Facebook Page for more information.

  1. What did you think of the Villages while you were there?

  2. Thanks for the plug. The Learning Rally is a lot of fun. Easy learning. Great food.

    We bought the Somewhere in Time movie when we visited Mackinac Island.

    Did I ever tell you about the time I had to spend the day with Jane Seymour? What a sweetie! Pictures on our blog.

  3. I really like having coffee with you each morning and reading of the adventures you and Terry have. On the travel days that the computer is not hooked up I miss seeing what you are doing.

    We made it safely to Manatee Hammock despite two blown tires 30 miles from our destination. Four hours later we were on our way once again.

    Sure is nice waking up to sunshine!

  4. Nick, If you want to try a good Sea Food resturant. Suggest you try “Sams Sea
    Food Rest”. It is located across Rt. 27 from Wal-Mart just north of
    the Villages. It is in a shopping center. They have all you can eat
    specials. I have never left there hungry. Enjoy FL.


  5. You should try the Speckled Butterbean for a buffet, Southern style. It is just down 44 to the east in front of the big RV dealer. I think you would like it.
    It has been about 80 every day in Tucson.

  6. Somewhere in Time is one of my all-time faves, too. And it was of my late hubby’s because he loved the ideas of time travel and reincarnation. He didn’t think it was a chick flick.
