Most of the western side of Alabama was under severe storm watches yesterday, including here in Pickens County. There was a tornado watch in effect from noon until 8 p.m., but thankfully, all we got was some rain. Like we needed more rain, right? Travis and Geli came over to be near our tornado shelter, […]

Baby, it’s cold outside! Move to Florida, they said. The sun always shines and it’s always warm and comfortable, they said. Throw away those long-sleeved shirts and sweaters, you’ll never need them, they said. They lied!

In spite of the fact that it was windy and chilly yesterday, we just couldn’t stay inside when we were this close to a beach. We started out by dropping off bundles of sample issues of the Gypsy Journal at some of the local RV parks between Oceano and Pismo Beach. They sure cram a […]

I got an e-mail from a blog reader who is shopping for a new motorhome, asking me how important we felt our built-in vacuum cleaner is, because the salesman is telling them that RVers consider this an essential item. I guess they’re still too green to know that if an RV salesman’s lips are moving, […]

Terry and I broke the cycle of getting up early that we had recently fallen into, and slept in yesterday morning. Now that was nice! Somebody chastised me the other day because I said we like sleeping late, but you have to keep in mind that I do most of my serious writing after 9 […]

Okay, the Labor Day weekend is over and it’s time for kids to get back to school and for life to get back to normal. We had a busy weekend. My cousin Berni Frees and her husband Rocky came down from their home in Muskegon, Michigan and spent part of the weekend with us. We […]

It is still incredibly hot here in northern Indiana, and it looks like the heat wave will hang on for several more days, at least. I love the classic looks of Airstream travel trailers, and even though one would not work for our lifestyle, I can’t pass one without giving it a second look. We […]

In yesterday’s blog, I offered a free sample of our test electronic edition, and by the time I turned on my computer in the morning I had 55 people asking for a sample! Another 25 or so e-mailed during the day asking for one too, so I spent a lot of time answering e-mails. The […]
