Spot Bloodlines

Spot Bloodlines
If today wasn't a "whoosh" day, I don't know what could possibly considered one. From the time I arrived at the office, it was a rush to get appointments made and phone calls returned before I had to head over to Clear Lake for a scheduled real estate class.  Since Realtors like many other professionals, have continuing education requirements that … continue reading

Nature’s Smallest

Nature’s Smallest
I arrived at my office all the sooner than normal since I had an early appointment to show a home which meant I had to get my open house signs out beforehand.  Most of the general public haven't a clue about how much busier some Realtors are on weekends than they are during the week.  Often times when being asked about contacting me, buyers or se … continue reading

Chickie, Chick, Chick

Chickie, Chick, Chick
As the thermometer approached 90 degrees again today, I happened to look across the parking lot towards the Courthouse and noticed a light blueish haze which most certainly was a condensed layer of humidity. As much as I worked to keep from perspiring, it had to happen every time I was outdoors for longer than ten minutes.  For sure I'll have to d … continue reading

Nobody’s Forcing You

Nobody’s Forcing You
I found myself a bit tardy with getting first of the month accounting done, and likely the only thing I can accredit such laziness to, is this steamy hot weather.  It was actually quite pleasant this morning, but as the sun was climbing higher, it quickly grew hot.  Some of the people I interact with on a daily basis were also a bit on the crabby … continue reading

The air continued to be heavy today, but at least it looks like the sun will start burning it off tomorrow.  It really has been the craziest of growing seasons this year.  Now on the downward slide of summer, I've seen some pretty sick looking fields of corn and soybeans.  One of my old clients told me today that for the first time in many years … continue reading

For a Better Life

For a Better Life
We were warned about the humidity levels today, and it certainly came to pass.  And of course with high heat and humidity, we find temperaments a bit shorter and words said that should have gone unspoken.  I'll never understand how people who live in the South and Southeastern areas of our country can deal with it on a daily basis.  One of my de … continue reading

Wet and Green

Wet and Green
After an early church service, I decided to call a well known whom I haven't spoken with for some time just so we could catch up with each other's lives.  One of the subjects we touched on was the super-sensitivities people have in our times with just about anything.  We decided it's a by-product of man's greatest evil--fear.  There are all thos … continue reading

Like a Goat

The meteorologist said we're going to be getting rain again starting tonight.  While in the grocery store this evening, one of my past clients mentioned that we're supposed to receive somewhere in the area of two inches which could be nasty if it all comes down at once.  A little bit at a time would be much better for our already over-abundance o … continue reading

Center Stage

Center Stage
It was quite the downpour of rain this afternoon.  Thank goodness I just finished up on my afternoon showings before it hit.  It was certainly heavy, but at least it was short lived, and fortunately not like what we were getting in May and June.One of my showings was at 40 Lakeview Drive today.  The buyers wanted to see it again so to check … continue reading

Y’all Come Back Now

Y’all Come Back Now
It couldn't have been a more pleasant last day of July where the sun was shining, the birds singing, and the temperatures moderate. Now if every day would be as such for the remainder of our season, I'll be very forgiving with Mother Nature for the poundings we received thus far this year.My morning appointment was with an executor to have a lo … continue reading
