707 N. Federal
Over the course of the day, I had an opportunity to visit with some of my clients and customers regarding how they were faring during this upside-down way of life we've been living since our Governor announced her first round of closings within our State.Most of them have been adjusting, but a few have grown despondent due to their age and immo … continue reading

Oh how wonderful it was to have the sun out, the wind having gone down, and the temps having risen to almost 60 degrees. It's amazing when finding how our outlooks suddenly turn brighter when the sun shines and that cold north wind isn't blowing. I truly enjoy the cooling north wind on hot summer days, but not any other time.It was a hodge-podg … continue reading

When I arrived at my office this morning, the first thing I did, was to place a call to one of my friends who lives out of State, just so to see how she's been doing these weeks since all the shut-downs took place. I was happy to hear she was doing fine, considering how much more she has to keep to close to home, which is a big change from her regu … continue reading

When it’s All Over
My first job of the morning, was to change my clothes, mix up some soap and bleach water, and attack the 1/2 bath in the back of my office, because I so graciously allowed someone to use it yesterday afternoon, and after they left, I went back there and discovered that person had done a "number 2" in the toilet, and the smell coming out of that roo … continue reading

The last time I checked, it looks like we made it thru yet another day without having another confirmed case of the virus in our County, and exceptionally happy over it. With the additional mandatory closures in our State by our Governor, I'm beginning to think our Historic Downtown is looking all the more like a ghost town.Once again, I manage … continue reading

Another day passed with still only two confirmed cases of the coronavirus in our County, and if only we can sustain those numbers for two weeks, I'd say we should be sailing forward as being one of those areas having been spared. The big problem we all have, are the people making deliveries, visiting families and friends, or just passing thru, who' … continue reading

Weak Promises

Weak Promises
These monotonous gray days we've been having, are beginning to get on everyone's nerves, and mine included. On a positive note, the light rain and high humidity is keeping the airborne coronavirus from staying afloat as long, which is a good thing for those of us who're fearfully waiting for the other shoe to drop in our County.I'm still in dis … continue reading

One more day has passed where there's not been another confirmed case of the corona virus in Cerro Gordo County, which is giving me even more hope it'll be a "fly-over" for the northern reaches of our State.I just read this morning where some of the mayors in the larger cities of Iowa are asking our Governor to call for a lock-down of our citie … continue reading

It looks like we made it thru one more day without there being another reported case of the coronavirus in Cerro Gordo County, so let's hope and pray they'll end up being the only two cases we'll have after it's all over.After reading a few news clips today about the spread of that virus, along with the interview a reporter had with an expert f … continue reading

In North Ioway
Traffic wise, I'd say today was the lightest I've seen on a Sunday for longer than I can remember. It was a little creepy-cool when driving to the office and encountering only about four cars that entire distance. I'm certainly glad all the more people are remaining home during the hours of their free weekends.When I arrived at my office, I wen … continue reading
