In Possession of Very Forked Tongues

In Possession of Very Forked Tongues
Our day started out a bit windy and cold, but as the hours passed, it began to slow which helped to bring out temps up to near 50 degrees today. Oh for goodness sakes, the potholes and puddles of water accumulating at the intersections and curbsides, made for a bit of dodging while driving.My first order of the day, was to get back to the littl … continue reading

You’re Outta Here

You’re Outta Here
In spite of our temps rising above freezing today, it sure didn't feel like it because that wind was strong and damp, and no matter how much I tried to stay out of it, the more it seemed to find me. For whatever reason, this winter has been one where the cold seems to radiate into homes and buildings more than normally. I'm thinking it's because th … continue reading

Gut-wrenching Days

Gut-wrenching Days
Another pleasant winter day arrived with our temps hovering around the freezing mark, and luckily I did manage to get to my office early enough so I could spend time researching the two properties I had scheduled to look at later today. After going thru all this past year's sales, I was able to find enough comparables for me to give those sellers m … continue reading

Re-visiting the Dark Ages

Re-visiting the Dark Ages
For the first time in weeks I didn't see anything worth mentioning on my way to work early this morning. I dare say there's usually one or more back-packing bikers, dumpster divers, rag draggers, spent cigarette butt pickers, or can grabbers. They all must've called their usual routines off this morning and thankful for it because whenever seeing s … continue reading

Level Playing Fields

Level Playing Fields
Sooner or later, there are days that come around, and as much as we try to avoid them, they end up being ones that make you want to go out and spit three times, in attempt to get the poison of others out of our systems, but today's cure, was seeing the above fox.Well, today was one of them, and without going into any detail or naming names, I w … continue reading

Dirtying Up

Dirtying Up
It was beyond chilly this morning when seeing it only six degrees outdoors as I was driving to work, but fortunately the sun did come out and begin warming things up, and quite amazed when seeing the temps had risen to 35 degrees in the Downtown at around 2:00 pm. Of course as sunset was approaching, the temps started tumbling back down again.W … continue reading

The More you Blink

The More you Blink
It looks like tonight's going to be another hellacious one where this Alberta Clipper is going to be moving a whole lot of snow around, and definitely not where we want it to be tomorrow morning.  Once again, I'd say we're a good month late in having this type of weather--especially the extreme cold and wind.One of my first stops today was to … continue reading

Illusion of Democracy

Illusion of Democracy
The hoar frost this morning was quite beautiful to where I was compelled to take the above photo of a clump of trees I happened upon while on my way up to Worth County this afternoon.I was out at my sidewalks with a vengeance this morning just to make sure all the light snow and sand was cleared off.  One of my neighbors down the block must've … continue reading

Cat Tracks

Cat Tracks
Since my inner clock was still set on daylight saving's time I curiously found myself driving to the office an hour earlier this morning.  It'll take a few days for me to get adjusted, so I'll just have to live with getting up an hour earlier than normal.  For sure I'll be ready for bed all the sooner tonight.Since it was rainy and dark this … continue reading

Broke America

Broke America
It was a bit of a "playing hooky" day for me since all I had to do with real estate was to prepare for my workweek ahead and return a few emails.  I stopped back at the office before heading home and found two messages on my answering machine.  Both callers somehow expected me to be there.  Wow!  Even Realtors have a life once in a while.Th … continue reading
