Terry says thank you to all of the people who left birthday greetings in blog comments, comments on Facebook, emails, and text messages yesterday. You all helped make her special day even more special. I finally convinced her to let me take her out for dinner and she chose Los Tarascos in Tuscaloosa. It’s one […]

In yesterday’s blog I said that I had released the audiobook of Tinder Street, the first book in my family saga series of the same name, using Amazon’s new artificial intelligence narration. Since then, I’ve heard from several readers who either purchased the book or downloaded the sample and the reports have all been good. […]

Several weeks ago, our son Travis called to ask us if we knew any place where he could get a couple of 55-gallon metal drums for one of his many projects around his place up in Alabama. He said they were hard to find around Tuscaloosa, and since they only have a compact car, getting […]

Neither Terry nor I slept well Monday night, both of us waking up repeatedly, her with stomach issues and me with back pain. It’s obvious to me that the RF ablation procedures I had done in June did not do any good this time around, which is a disappointment because they were so successful three […]

We had to go to Orlando yesterday for a follow-up with Doctor Creamer, who did my recent RF nerve ablations. The traffic was about as bad as I had expected it to be, but we got through all right and arrived for the appointment with a few minutes to spare. His office is very efficient, […]

The weather here in Central Florida has been crazy. In the last week we’ve had overnight temperatures that dropped down into the upper 30s, and some days we had to wear jackets when we left the house. Other days, like yesterday, it was in the 80s and the air conditioner was running. I guess the […]

Goofing Off

I can only spend so many days in a row stuck at my desk, and then I have to escape for at least a little while. I reached that point yesterday, so I took a break from working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and Greg White and I drove out to Shipshewana […]

After the whirlwind activity of getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, printed, and mailed, it was nice to have a day when we didn’t have to do anything. Yesterday we slept in, and when we got up, Miss Terry made a delicious brunch of crepes. Yummy! We spent some time checking e-mail […]

Friday morning we were up early again, serving coffee and donuts to our rally attendees, saying goodbye, and wishing them a safe trip to wherever they are headed next. There were lots of hugs as RVers wished us well, congratulated us on a great rally experience, and promised to see us somewhere down the road. […]
