Gypsy Jane got her 3rd motorhome and decided it was a good point to start blogging it's adventures. Gypsy's a reset merchandiser who travels both for work and for fun. No telling where that motorhome might show up ;)
On the fourth motorhome now, she's still blogging on the road. She posts several posts at a time when she has the high-speed connectivity to do so, so don't just read the top one - you'll miss something.

I broke my beloved Melitta coffee carafe. You know, the kind that takes #6 cone filters & makes 10 cups of drip coffee without benefit of electricity? As it had been quite a while since I'd had that particular variety of klutz-attack, I was quite surprised to find these are no longer readily available in stores. I bought the one I broke years ago at the supermarket, so that was the first place I looked. Nope, and not WalMart, KMart or Target either. A friend nicely gifted me with a still-available single cup version, with a really neat cup. But my search continued. I did find it on line, though, at ACE HARDWARE, and ordered one. It came today and water is boiling for coffee. YAY! So what's up with the retail assumption that we all have lots of counter space to spare and can't pour water???
