Elbow Grease and Imagination is Out of Vogue

Elbow Grease and Imagination is Out of Vogue
I'm sure everyone was glad to see the rain arrive, and since I have yet to hear how much we received, I'll wager we got a good half inch or more. At least we'll continue to see our landscapes on the green side instead of what's happening out West. I'm sure many on the coast of New England are bracing themselves for that hurricane moving in their di … continue reading

That Charming Senior Housing Community

That Charming Senior Housing Community
Another early at office came to pass, and only because I had many things to get accomplished before the hour of eight arrived. There were also phone messages that came in after hours which I had to log and give call backs after my opening time. Of course when driving down the streets of the Downtown, along with the back alley of my office, the a … continue reading

The Winsome Ways of that By-gone Era

The Winsome Ways of that By-gone Era
Another upper 80's day happened again, and if our temps don't start dropping and we're without rain, we'll be seeing some rapid browning-up of our landscapes. The only positive thing about this dry spell, is the lack of mosquitos, which is just fine by me. I'm now wondering if we'll have a high mosquito population next year, even if we have normal … continue reading

Your Words and Influence will Plant the Seed

Your Words and Influence will Plant the Seed
Depending where a person was at today, our temps were ranging in the lower to mid and upper 80's, which is quite unusual considering it's already the 18th of August. If it were just a day or two, it would be different, but when it's a daily occurrence, that's when it' becomes deeply troubling. Every morning when I'm checking the news, there's alway … continue reading

Drive to Lead in a Productive Way

Drive to Lead in a Productive Way
It was an early to office again this morning and back to working at several "problem child" files which at times, seem to arrive without notice. No matter how much we think a transaction at the beginning is going to be clear-sailing to close, there happens to be things that've happened in the past that should've been taken care of at the time, but … continue reading

After Billions of Dollars Spent

After Billions of Dollars Spent
Once again, it was back up in the 80's again today, and from what I was seeing online this morning, it looks like we may possibly have some rain towards the end of this week. Some of the field corn I was looking at yesterday, had drooping ears which I thought a bit odd, and likely due to lack of moisture. One positive thing about having this heav … continue reading

So Cleverly Manage to Cloak

So Cleverly Manage to Cloak
Oh it was a bit chilly again this morning, and if it be my choice to control our temperature settings, I'd have it warmer in the morning and cooler in the afternoon. It's been a surprise to find the temps still up in the 80's when the weather forecasters have been saying it was supposed to be in the 70's. Oh well, we just have to accept what we get … continue reading

Prince of a Chestnut Stallion

Prince of a Chestnut Stallion
When finding it below fifty degrees outdoors early this morning, was definitely an indication our days of summer will soon be coming to a close. As much as I wanted to get some personal things done these warm months, I found myself playing catch-up from the toxic year I had this past, and for whatever reason it happened, it's now thankfully gone. I … continue reading

It’s Pickling Time Again

It’s Pickling Time Again
Pretty much the bulk of my day was spent on follow-up calls, meeting tradespeople, and showing a rental, and in between all of that, was my tending to those little office chores that always get pushed back until there's nothing remaining that's more pressing. I even went to the extent of giving my office refrigerator a good cleaning which is about … continue reading

What they Want and When they Want

What they Want and When they Want
After arrival at office, my first duty of the morning was to place a call to a dear friend of mine whom I've not seen in many months and all due to this pandemic. When I pulled up to her house, I was wowed by the number of exterior improvements she'd made since I was last there. Yes, I've driven by several times, but the real impression didn't hit … continue reading
