The Tin Man

The Tin Man
I had a much needed laugh this morning when one of my dear long-term clients was talking about how vicious some people have been of late in the newspaper regarding crap they've been sending to print about my brother and myself, by saying, "The next time this comes around, just tell them to make sure they spell your name right because when you step … continue reading

Feathers to Fall

Feathers to Fall
Much of my morning was spent at the computer and running errands.  It's amazing how times have changed when in the old days, businesses would have to wait for the postman to deliver that day's correspondence which then had to be sorted, and delivered to the proper departments.Once they were read, the secretaries would have appropriate return l … continue reading

What Knot
It seems every time we have a Monday off, the days of the week get all mixed up to where we've had to keep reminding ourselves that today is Wednesday and not Tuesday.   This usually goes on the entire week until a normal weekend comes and goes which gets us back on track with our work days.My day went quickly by with phone calls and emails t … continue reading

When I awakened this morning and looked outside, it appeared as though it had rained once again in the night.  For some reason it seemed a repeat of yesterday, only being without the rain.I had a very good chat with several of my relatives this morning regarding my visit to various grave sites yesterday, and was surprised that we hadn't run in … continue reading

Memorial Day of 2019

Memorial Day of 2019
In spite of the rain this morning, I was determined to pay a visit to a few cemeteries.  Those low hanging and fast-moving clouds were a bit scary looking, and when hearing later today that Charles City got hit with a tornado, it came as no surprise, because our weather was acting very weird the entire time I was driving.Whenever I stop to vis … continue reading

Alas the wind stopped blowing which allowed an absolutely beautiful day to unfold here in North Iowa.  I was keen on spending as much time outdoors just so to savor as many moments possible.I had few things to do at the office early this morning before heading off to my first little project of the day.  When I pulled up, I happened to notice … continue reading

We should all feel blessed it was a near perfect day for the festivities in our Downtown today, and you can be sure I was out placing my open house signs earlier this morning before the streets were closed and the traffic started building up.I had to get a few personal errands run before making a call to my dear aunt to see if I could stop and … continue reading

Right in the Middle

Right in the Middle
When knowing today was going to be a busy one, I made sure to get to the office and cracking all the earlier.  I was terribly disgusted when finding it had rained again last night which makes me wonder when this nonsense is going to stop.  I'm beginning to think this is truly going to be a re-play of last year's growing season.My first job wa … continue reading

Slide of Memory

Slide of Memory
Perhaps just maybe, it's going to warm up and stay there from here on out, and if the clouds had stayed away, I'd say it would've been a near perfect day.  Let's hope our entire Memorial Day weekend's weather will be at its best.  And to think we're a little less than a month away from the sun starting its journey south again.  When saying this, … continue reading

Having Nightmares

Having Nightmares
It's finally quit raining, but when will the wind stop blowing so hard?  There were two more monster branches that I noticed today that were the result of this wind.  Thank goodness that one big limb of an oak tree managed to fall between two houses and land smack dab on a driveway.  The owner of that house has got a big job of clearing away to … continue reading
