Thumb a Ride

Thumb a Ride
It was a busy hump day for me with having to check on a vacant home first thing this morning, just so to make sure a contractor was able to get in to get a few minor repairs done. I then headed out to the east side of our City to pick up my sold sign and remove the lockbox on a home that was set to close later this morning, and after returning to m … continue reading

My Me Cave

My Me Cave
There's no question nearly all of us were delighted to find our temps hovering around 50 degrees today which gave us a welcome reprieve from those bone-chilling weeks we've already endured. It sounds like it'll be above freezing for the next seven days, and that's just OK by me.Most of my morning was spent doing some follow-up emailing and phon … continue reading

Another creepy gray day came and went, and in spite of the weather, I was kept busy enough for the hours to quickly pass. It didn't surprise me when getting a call from a prospective buyer on my new listing at 508 Bridge St. in Plymouth. Fortunately I had time to run up there and show it right away this morning. The buyer seemed quite interested in … continue reading

It wasn't the warm and sunny day I was expecting, and we can thank today's wind for making it less pleasant. Before sunrise, I could see there was a thin layer of high cloud cover which didn't clear off until later.My morning showings went well, and hopefully I'll be hearing from the buyers because they were expressing more than a passing inter … continue reading

Automate and Subcontract

Automate and Subcontract
With our month nearly half over, I'm quite happy that I've been busy enough to where the days have been flying by, and thankful for it because November is my most despised month, and December/January being not far behind. The dark days and long nights can be wearing when knowing one is pretty much trapped indoors for all the more hours.Since I' … continue reading

With it being Veteran's Day, it came as no surprise that our Downtown wasn't as busy as as my normal Mondays considering all the Government offices and banks were closed. Not to worry because I had more than enough to do during those quieter hours. My first job was to sweep that light dusting of snow off my front sidewalks which had accumulated ove … continue reading

Conversational Minutiae

Conversational Minutiae
Several days ago one of my clients asked if I would meet him for an early breakfast at Perkins this morning. I freely accepted the invitation because I'd not been there for at least four years or more. I did tell him at the time it would have to be early because I had to play for St. Paul Lutheran's mid-morning Service this morning. He was fine wit … continue reading

Blazing Sunsets
I'd say it was one of those whirlwind days to where I was on the move nearly every moment while attempting to fill the real estate needs of others, and for sure, I should've eaten a big bowl of Wheaties for breakfast because by the time my last appointment was over, I was metaphysically dragging.Nearly my entire morning was spent showing ten ho … continue reading

It was a delight having the temps higher and the sun out this morning which I'm sure made everyone's day all the brighter. It certainly did mine because I managed to get nearly all of the main accounting and bill paying completed early enough before the phones started ringing.My first appointment was with an advertising rep from KCMR Radio who … continue reading

Footprints in the Sand

Footprints in the Sand
Yours truly was not a happy camper when finding it hovering around four degrees while on my way to work this morning, and the first order of the my day was to get some snow shoveling done. Ugh! For sure I'm going to have to find myself a good pair of warm gloves because the ones I have don't even come close to keeping my fingers warm.When I ret … continue reading
