Sandpoint Realty 'Thursday Thought' - September 15, 2022

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sandpoint Realty LLC DB36113

There is little more be said about this week's Sandpoint Realty 'Thursday Thought' than the quote itself.  lol

Sandpoint Realty Thursday Thought Family

I just got back from a 15 hour spur of the moment emergency drive to see my brother.  I left 2 days later, making the same 15 hour drive, from Reno Nevada to Sandpoint Idaho, shaking my head in bewilderment most of the way.  Oddly enough - I would turn around today and do the same if needed.

Hi Mark-   I hope all is well. We moved back to Houston in 2019 so I could be closer to my family (and Larry's since his is in KS and Omaha)  I do love them but there are times when I find myself shaking my head.

Most of my kids live close.  The furthest is 140 miles away.  I'm glad they are nearby.

Endre, with the last minute notice and timing issues I chose to drive.  Got there a couple hours sooner than any other flight combination would have accommodated.  Be honest I did not know I still had it in me.  Always good to find out otherwise.  lol  Mark

It is amazing, in our business, how many people we see moving because of wanting to be near, or closer to, the grandkids.  Much more often than the 'kids'.  Take care and enjoy the soccer game.  M

Love George Burns, Mark! He had a way of distilling a message! Had to chuckle at this quote... we've lived thousands and thousands of miles and/or continents away from family for at least 35 years. We remain close-knit but avoid all the drama of being in each other's faces on a regular basis. Meantime, trust all is well with your brother.

Mark, I don't have family, so no drama, but have the closest best friends.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho I completely understand that since most of my family lives in RI, and I live a couple of hours away in CT.
