This Last Day

This Last Day
I'm happy my week finished out on a number of positive notes which counter-balanced things that happened this week which nearly caused me to go out and spit three times as they do to ward off evil in a few of our sub-cultures.  While writing this, I thought of another saying which goes, "If you get angry with someone, just count to four, but when … continue reading

Before our Eyes

Before our Eyes
If I were not absolutely certain, I would've considered today to be one of those Friday the thirteenths were everything wanted to go wrong, and most needing immediate attention.  Because I was so stirred up from a call around mid-morning, I nearly forgot an appointment I had with a seller who wanted me to go out and give a rough estimate on the va … continue reading

Heaping Load of Stainless

Heaping Load of Stainless
Today was an absolute turnabout from yesterday's nasty weather, which is likely the reason there were all the more people out and about in the Downtown.  Let's hope it stays like this for our upcoming Labor Day Weekend.  It makes me sad when realizing summer is rapidly coming to a close, and yet still of the belief we never really had one.Jus … continue reading

Tweet-less
It may sound like I'm beating to death the subject of weather, but I still can't believe how wet this summer has been.  This is definitely NOT the time of year we should be getting so much rain.  My memories of August have nearly always been of it being the time when the fields are nearly matured, the gardens are heavily laden with produce and ev … continue reading

Drawn-Out Fairy Tales
Do any of you ever remember a summer being like this one?  Here it is the 27th of August with high temperatures along with what feels like 100% humidity. I read today that we're going to be in the path of another storm that'll be bringing strong straight-line winds with it which means you all better be prepared to button down your hatches.  If we … continue reading

Visuals and Hoopla
I was beginning to feel we were living near the sea with this exceptionally damp southern breeze we were getting all day.  The moisture was so thick that the grass wasn't  even completely dried out when I started mowing at two o'clock this afternoon.Speaking of mowing, I'm in utter shock by the number of people who're not mowing like they sho … continue reading

321 S. Carolina Ave.
If I didn't know any better I'd swear today was a repeat of a Monday after a three day weekend.  I'm certainly happy for the business, but there were a few of those annoying little circumstances, yet still managed to sail thru the day and that's all that matters.We certainly had a wicked storm last evening.  I know we received hail, but I don … continue reading

Educated into Gold
I'm still wondering where this week went.  I know I was busy, but to the point of waking up this morning in disbelief that it was Friday, was an unusual happening.  I suppose if I went and looked back at my calendar, the memories would be resurrected, but doubtful I would because it was a roller-coaster I'll not want to ride again any time soon. … continue reading

Come Set a Spell

Come Set a Spell
At least half of my day was spent working on two files which consisted of the potential sale of a home which did happen today, and the other being a closing that's coming up next week.  The two of them needed all the more work than normal due to the complexity and number of people involved.  I again reminded myself that too many cooks spoil the s … continue reading

Bleak Outlook

Bleak Outlook
This morning's 56 degrees outdoors was certainly our warning of days to come.  At least the sun was shining and it warmed up to a pleasant upper 70's.  As long as it stays in the 60's and 70's during the day, I'll be happy because I personally have some things to get finished outdoors, and I'll not be wanting to be doing it when it's in the 40's. … continue reading
