What a day it was early last week. I had two inspections within 20 miles (or so) of Cave Run Lake. One of my favorite places in Kentucky.
But, at about 11:45, as I'm finishing up my first inspection, the client for the second inspection calls. He lost his financing. Inspection cancelled.
What does a Kentucky Home Inspector do when a client loses his financing & cancels the inspection.
Why, go fishing! After all, it was only 20 miles (or so) away from where I was for the morning inspection. (I guess that's why I carry fishing gear in the van.)
I left my morning inspection, which was back down this cute little road.
Soon I was zipping along here.
Wondering who was going to get this listing? (You up for it, Lizette?)
Sometimes the walls fall down.
I pulled in here.
To see this.
Before long (and after a few dollars had changed hands), the view had changed to this.
And then to this.
Soon I looked ahead and saw the clouds darkening. (Yeah, it's just a little john boat, but it got me where I was going in a reasonable time.)
But, after a thorough drenching of gentle rain, the sun came out again. (and I mean thorough, might as well have jumped in the lake, I was that wet. Good thing I had a baggy for the camera) A reflection of the trees on shore.
I passed this isolated nest in a tree in the middle of the lake-
To pull in to this little cove
and say hello (catch & release) to about 10 of these little guys. What a blast. They were real friendly! I REALLY wanted to say howdy to their great grandpas, but none of them were home at the time I was there. Darn it!
It was kind of sad to leave the hills behind.
Hey, at least in conversations at the marina, I exchanged or was asked for five or six business cards (that name on the back of the shirt (B4U Close Home Inspections) & a willingness to talk to people pays off). Think the IRS would buy this as a marketing trip.
It's a wonderful day when I wake up in the morning. The rest of the day is just what I make of it. Now you know what I made of that day!
