50K Tricked-out Triple Garage

50K Tricked-out Triple Garage
This was a wildish Wednesday if there ever was considering the number of intervening circumstances that had to be dealt with which had "immediate attention" written all over them.  I'm just thankful I managed to get each and every one of them taken care of in a timely manner.  Thank goodness there were several people involved who were helping thi … continue reading

South Carolina’s Hardwoods

South Carolina’s Hardwoods
Here we are rapidly approaching the eve of Halloween which is of course the last day of October.  I'm a bit sad in finding that this past month which should have normally been sunny, pleasant, and dry, ended up being cold, dark, and wet.  I cringe at the thought of what November is going to be like when knowing how erratic our weather has been si … continue reading

Wire that Changed the West

Wire that Changed the West
Thank goodness the wind reversed directions and was blowing from the south today which helped to warm our daytime temperatures.  Since I had an early appointment in Northwood, my drive up there was more pleasant due to it being sunny and dry.  Unfortunately, I'm still seeing a large number of corn fields that have yet to be picked, so hopefully o … continue reading

Clipping Along

Clipping Along
Having taken the day off from real estate, I dug myself into things needing my attention before the hard frost arrives.  Today especially, I couldn't believe how quickly the hours passed, so I guess my nose was buried so deep that the passing of time became irrelevant.I did manage to get the most pressing of projects accomplished which I'll no … continue reading

Very Sad Lady

Very Sad Lady
With Halloween approaching, I'd say our early morning fog was more than creepy-cool.  While on my way to work, I felt as though I was driving onto the set of "Dark Shadows" or "The Hauntings" which back in my youthful days were exceptionally frightening, but in these jaded times, I'd say many of our young would've considered it to be just another … continue reading

Fall Hatchlings

Fall Hatchlings
Let's hope this rain doesn't continue on into the weekend because like many of the rest of us, I have things I need to get done outdoors.  At least I wasn't as chilled today as yesterday, which is giving me hope I'm finally getting adjusted to this cold.  I couldn't believe seeing several boys climbing onto a school bus with shorts on this mornin … continue reading

It seems everyone was complaining today about how cold it was outdoors.  Even though the temps were up in the 50's, the dampness made it feel much colder.  The way the sky appeared in the west, made me think of snow clouds.  I have to admit, the remainder of the afternoon was so gray, our landscape appeared almost surrealistic.  For the many re … continue reading

Pine For Their Return

Pine For Their Return
Ouch!  The 25 degree temperature this morning was enough to make my fingers feel like icicles, but at least the sun was shining enough to warm the rest of our day.  I'm still in dis-belief how cold and wet this month has been.  I'm growing all the more concerned we're going to have a beast of a winter while remaining in hopes it won't be like ou … continue reading

Each and Every Person

This was certainly the Tuesday to remember with the number of near immediate chores that suddenly arrived at my workstation this morning.  With a deep breath, I dug myself into the day, and by quitting time, I looked back and smiled while thinking, "You actually got thru it and still managed to keep everyone happy."About two morning hours went … continue reading

October’s Harvest

October’s Harvest
I'm hoping all of you had a productive Monday in spite of my having discovered our full moon is rapidly approaching.   I hadn't been paying attention to the phases of the moon this month, which was likely due to all the days of cloud cover we've had, but after experiencing some abnormal behavior with a few people today, I checked to see when our … continue reading
