Took A Break from writing for a bit.  Why am I back....?   I missed it.  I like sharing what I am good at with others....Not the writing...The Selling or Purchasing of Real Estate.

More activity?  Is it better?  Here in the Mountain Home, Arkansas area we are seeing more activity.  Normally this time of year things start to slow a bit...Spring was not normal by any means so I should not be surprised that summer would be out of the norm.
