Warning of Today

Warning of Today
After reading the news this morning about our government placing sanctions on Russia for their meddling in our 2016 elections, I thought, “About time, and I hope they crank it up even more after finding all the more infiltrations the Russians have done with their protracted cyber espionage.”  I do hope America, Great Britain, and all the other … continue reading

There wasn’t much excitement at the office today to where I actually had to go looking for something to keep myself busied.  I did get started at clearing out and straightening up my storage room.  I felt it better to get cracking at it before the Spring market starts to open up.  It should be pretty much back in order before the end of tomorr … continue reading

Pay Taxes and Die

Pay Taxes and Die
One of my calls this morning was to a banker who had information I needed.  Since he didn't have it readily at hand, he said, "Give me a minute, and I'll call you right back. I promise." Well, yours truly waited, waited, and waited some more, until I figured I'd better get some errands run before lunch. Keep in mind, when I called him, it was arou … continue reading

When the Fun Starts

When the Fun Starts
Earlier this morning I had a showing of an acreage up in Worth County.  It was quite the pleasant trip with the roads clear and the sun brightly shining.  With it still early in the  season, most of our farmers are likely still down South or, out West enjoying their winter homes.  You'd be surprised how many of our bigger than big row-crop farm … continue reading

Another of my appointments today was with the director of Prairie Place on 1st.  We talked about the units remaining, along with the number of people that've been showing interest, but not stepping forward to make offers.  We decided it's the time of the year as well as this crazy weather that's been holding them back.  During these bitterly col … continue reading

Hurried Monday

Hurried Monday
One of my appointments this morning was in Nora Springs, so I figured I'd stop and pay a visit to an dear classmate of mine who lives there.  He was only in my class school for one year, but during that time, we must've made a memorable impression on each other because a very many years later and after his recent divorce, he decided to move back t … continue reading

As I suspected, there were a number of weather related car accidents due to today's snow around North Iowa. I don't know how many times I've told people that if it starts snowing after we've had days of bitter cold, the roads are all the more dangerous.  I think it must have something to do with those overly frozen roadbeds.  Just walking two blo … continue reading

For Those Who’ve Survived

For Those Who’ve Survived
My public open house today at 1034 Park Lane was a smashing success.  There must've been at least 12 couples in attendance.  It'll not surprise me a bit if it gets sold within a week.  Like I said, it's priced very "right" considering its location, the age, the square footage, and recent updates.  There'll be some who've looked at it recently, … continue reading

Making Iowa Greatly

Making Iowa Greatly
One of my customers stopped by to drop off a check early this afternoon.  He must've had some extra time to kill because of his extended stay.  Since we were seated up near the front window, he happened to notice a couple with several young children walking past my office.  I think that must've been his cue to bring up the subject of how differe … continue reading

Most of my day was spent running errands and working on my office accounts.  Just staying at it an hour or two each day, makes for another one of my jobs finished more sooner than later.One of my errands sent me out to my listing at 1034 Park Lane here in Mason City where I took new exterior and interior photos which I felt necessary so to rep … continue reading
