Dishing with Dorie ~ 7 /8/19

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

The long holiday week-end has come to an end! So many activities, sunny days, summer celebrations have been in full swing! The kids came over for a BBQ and Geno wrestled with staying strong to interact and be present.

Geno's lift for his new wheelchair was installed in his car and yesterday I was thrilled to honestly say I've mastered it's remote control operation! What a difference in getting him in and out of the car so was able to make nail and hair appointments and squeezed in a quick lunch. 

Today my favorite stager, Brian Morris, with Brian David Design is staging a new listing coming on market this week and getting another one ready to be staged in a few weeks.

Did you know a Texas Treasure "Whataburger" is selling to a Chicago based company? It was founded in Corpus Christi in 1950.

Those lifts are amazing, I watched one in action at our friend's home.  Her husband has one, and I am so happy that it makes life easier for you.  A

Dorie- So glad that the lift can help make Geno's life more mobile for him!!! I did read that about Whataburger and I'm not sure I'm happy about that!!! BTW- one of the first things we ate (beside Tex-Mex) when we returned was a Whataburger!!!!

Morning Dorie.

I love WhataBurger, it brings back a lot of fond memories.  The ones we have around here are not up to what they were a few years ago.  Hopefully, the new owners will change that
