False Progress

False Progress
It certainly felt like a Fall morning with the misty-rain coming down, and since it was a bit chilly out, I stopped at a convenience store and grabbed a small cup of coffee to sip on while at office. In spite of it being an early Saturday morning, I was surprised to find so few vehicles on the road. There must've been a whole lot of partying going … continue reading

1006 – 1008 N. Delaware Ave.

1006 – 1008 N. Delaware Ave.
This morning's weather was quite pleasant with the warm breezes and shining sun, but not long after the hour of two, it began growing overcast and cooler. Of course the wind changed directions and now coming from what appears to be a north/northeasterly direction. North Iowa's definitely starting to take on the appearance of Fall.Before arrivin … continue reading

Revisiting 304 N. Fairview

Revisiting 304 N. Fairview
This southerly wind we've been getting, created a much warmer early morning which ended up turning into somewhat of a sticky-hot day. I was compelled to stop at a convenience store to grab a cup of java before heading Downtown, and of course the early-morning factory workers were inside buying all those bad for your health munchies which makes me w … continue reading

Resurrecting Those Past Events

Resurrecting Those Past Events
It was definitely an interesting morning when having arrived at work and discovering 3 Timberlane Drive wound up getting sold late last night. It definitely came as no surprise since I know how popular that district is with its larger than normal lot sizes and less-traveled streets. As I've mentioned before, today's buyers are more interested in pr … continue reading

Today’s Corporate Ways In America

Today’s Corporate Ways In America
After getting myself settled at office this morning, I proceeded to deliver six grocery bags full of cucumbers to a very thankful receiver. Each time I've made a delivery, I drive away thinking I've performed at least one small good for others, which gives me a warm feeling within.With it still being the first of the month, I had to set aside t … continue reading

Extended Productivity Cycle

Extended Productivity Cycle
These three-day weekends always gets me to feeling like it's a back-to-back Sunday, and when Tuesday arrives, nearly the entire day I'm believing it's Monday. Wouldn't you think it best if we just lumped together all the those Monday's off and turn them into entire weeks off? It may sound crazy, but there wouldn't be any more of those Tuesdays feel … continue reading

The Perfect Half

The Perfect Half
Another Sunday morning arrived without any unexpected events, and of course my first duty of the day, was to get myself settled back in my darkened corner, just so I'd be able to start my weekly contemplative session early enough so I wouldn't be interrupted by street noise which normally begins after sunup.Today I had another intention to add … continue reading

Job Flexibility

Job Flexibility
From the time I arrived at office this morning, I was on a burn to get started on some of my personal projects that've been hanging fire, which is why I made sure all of my real estate work was done before changing my clothes and heading out.When I arrived at my outdoor project, the first thing I did was get myself sprayed down with bug repella … continue reading

The Peripherals That Go With It

The Peripherals That Go With It
Today's temps were more reminiscent of mid-July rather than the first days of September, and mostly due to the southerly wind likely pushing all the warm and humid air up to us from the Southern States. Every time we have hot days this late, they always "feel" hotter than they normally do earlier in our season. I believe it has something to do with … continue reading

A Curious Jumble Of Lines

A Curious Jumble Of Lines
My morning drop-offs of excess cucumbers were all well-received, and in spite of being thanked copiously, the receivers had absolutely no idea how thankful I was for them taking them instead of having them go to waste. I'm pretty sure it was another divine intervention the morning I called over to Fareway to see if they wanted to purchase them, and … continue reading
