A Primitive Beauty

A Primitive Beauty
Since I had no morning appointments, I busied myself with all those little "clean-up" projects that were hanging fire until I had time to get them finished, and that I did. It couldn't have been a better day to be trapped indoors considering how nasty it was outside nearly the entire day. Alas my un-favorite month of November is finally over and gl … continue reading

Epidemic of Un-kindness

Epidemic of Un-kindness
It was a noticeably different Black Friday from those of years past because of how few people there were out and about today, and after having stopped at Walmart earlier,  I couldn't believe how their parking lot was no more filled than on a normal day.  What gives?  Well, I think what we're seeing, is the end-product of on-line shopping.  You' … continue reading

Happy 2019 Thanksgiving!

Happy 2019 Thanksgiving!
In spite of it being a cold and gray day, I found enough things to keep me busy enough to where the hours flew by. This is the third "fly-over" Thanksgiving since my mother's death, and unfortunately I still don't consider myself ready to get back into the swing of holiday get-togethers.Some years ago a dear client whom I've known for a number … continue reading

Foaming at the Mouth

Foaming at the Mouth
I'm sure everyone was surprised to find as much heavy wet snow on the ground this morning, and certainly disgusted over how hard it was to clear, and yours truly being one of them. I guess the only thing worse than having snow on the day before Thanksgiving, would be waking up to it the morning of.There's no question I'll be having some aches a … continue reading

The Most Primitive

The Most Primitive
Another gray November day happened, and I'm not the least bit sorry we're approaching the end of it. The clouds were growing all the darker as the humidity was rising on the wake of what appears to be our first heavy snowfall of the season. Let's hope it passes thru quickly so those coming from the north are able to be with their families for Thank … continue reading

The Return of the Crows

The Return of the Crows
My Monday morning started off early with having to get my most recent buyers' information sent over to the title attorney so we can hopefully make our less than thirty day closing to happen. It's my belief that if everyone is alerted early enough on, and know from the beginning there's a tight time frame, it can usually happen as long as we're not … continue reading

Following the Sun

Following the Sun
Having taken care of my "church duties" late yesterday, I was all the more free to get some things done today that've been hanging fire. There were a few office duties I had to take care of before heading out, as well as returning a phone call to a dear one who lives out of State. We had a nice long chat about the recent happenings in our lives. I … continue reading

Buttered Eggs

Buttered Eggs
With it being only 20 degrees out and of course the north wind blowing again, I made sure to dress warm enough when knowing I was going to be doing a few things outdoors this morning. I found enough to do at the office while waiting for the sun to climb higher and starting raising our temps. By the time 10:00 a.m. rolled around, I decided if I didn … continue reading

“Jell-Bent”

“Jell-Bent”
Twas quite the biting cold outside and certainly glad I was in my warm vehicle while driving up to Forest City early this morning to pick up my sold sign and take the lockbox off a home that was set to close before noon. That was another sale that went like clockwork with the financing. As I was approaching Forest City, I remembered that on October … continue reading

A Good Scare

A Good Scare
With it being a slower morning which was likely due to the overcast skies and biting cold wind coming out of the north, I managed to get caught up on some bill paying and accounting. It's amazing how just ten for fifteen degrees can change one's attitude towards being outdoors.One of my mid-morning appointments was to meet an out-of-town Realto … continue reading
