A Beachy Kind Of Day

We had to go back to Best Buy in Daytona Beach yesterday to order something that we couldn’t figure out on their website. It’s always fun to wander around there and look at all the new tech toys, but there was nothing I really wanted or needed. I don’t know if there’s a big sporting […]

Long-time readers of my blogs or the Gypsy Journal know that Terry and I enjoy visiting old cemeteries. Some people might think that’s morbid, but to us, it’s always interesting. It puts your own life in perspective when you see how many people, especially women, died at early ages back in the “good old days.” […]

Are you going to watch the Presidential Inauguration today? We sure plan to. With all of the craziness that has gone on in our country, I don’t think I will breathe a complete sigh of relief until it’s over. A friend told me yesterday that she thinks the whole world will breathe a sigh of […]

The events of the last few days have occupied a lot of my time, and I will admit that I have been rather snippy with some folks who believe that the insurrection we saw happening on Wednesday is all a plot by far left liberals or that COVID-19 is all a hoax. I just don’t […]

After endless months of hot, humid weather, a cold front came through Central Florida yesterday and dropped the temperature down into the mid-70s. Boy, were we glad to see that! Terry and I had doctors’ appointments in New Smyrna Beach in the early afternoon, and when we finished up with that we drove a mile […]

It’s Not Over

Just because the media has been focusing on George Floyd’s murder and all of the protests and looting that have followed, don’t think for a minute that coronavirus isn’t still out there. Two weeks after they opened the beaches here in Volusia County, Florida and huge crowds showed up from all over the state, the […]

I had an appointment at the VA Medical Center in Daytona Beach yesterday afternoon to go over my labs with my VA primary care doctor. If you read the blog regularly, you may recall I did the same thing with my civilian primary care last Friday. It’s redundancy, but as I explained then, even though […]
