We Do Wear Out

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

We could use some rain around here (the Minot ND area). It has been a very long time since I remember a real "Thunder Boomer" and frankly I love a good rain storm.

Unlike Joe in Timmothy's comic strip, I actually sleep better when a good rain comes in the middle of the night. I wouldn't know if the rain made me go to the bathroom, I get up most nights any way to do that.

If there is anything making me walk around like a Zombe these days it's the experience of moving my business. Just like the home owners who list with us or the home buyers trusting in our word I wonder if the move is what is best for me and Timmothy. And then there is the cleaning, painting, and do I need an electrician or not.

At the risk of droning on I just want to clarify a couple of things. 1) I am in a commercial building and I am moving directly under my current location. 2) As far as the location... how much traffic will we lose moving an Art Gallery off of the main floor to the lower level with no elevator? 3) Cleaning and painting. This area has not been used in at least a decade. Believe me, it needs cleaning.

So if you see a zombe or two (Joe and Me) don't panic. I just keep saying to myself, this too shall pass.

Grant Schneider I am speaking somewhat selfishly as I don't know what our agriculture community needs/wants BUT I know my lawn needs it and our garden isn't quite done yet either.

Hi Bob... Charlotte is waiting for up to six inches of rain in the next 24 or so hours from Ian. Might be as little as two inches... I guess, by tomorrow we'll know. We haven't seen rain in over two weeks so we could use some... just don't know that we need it from a hurricane.

Hello Bob I wish you could get some of the rain that is hitting South Carolina today.  Great comic strip.

I hope that Ion is gentle to you Nina Hollander, Broker . Nobody can use six inches all at once. Our farmers have completed harvest so now they are looking for that 2" to assist them with Spring planting.

Believe it or not Nina Hollander, Broker I added Charlotte to my weather app a while back so I can see  how my BARFF friend is doing. I saw todays forecast and I was concerned for you. BTW we have been having warmer day time temps then you for several days. I think I can get used to living in Charlotte. 😤

Bob "RealMan" Timm hi Bob... it's been a cold, grey, miserable day here today... hasn't gotten above 55 degrees. Right now wind isn't too bad. It's raining steadily but not heavily.

Thank you Will Hamm. I will pass the kind words on to Timmothy, he loves to know that he made someone smile.

Me too Carol Williams . I know that it will cut down a little on the traffic right now BUT as Timmothy becomes more and more recognized I know that traffic will catch up quickly.

Hi Bob- I tend to sleep very well and unless it's a big thunderstorm, I've been known to sleep through rain.

Amen to that Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho if I make it 2 nights a week that I don't have to get up it's nearly a miracle. On the good side how ever I so back to sleep as quickly as my head hits the pillow. 😄

I think rain helps me sleep Kathy Streib unless it is one heck of a thunder storm... then I wonder if one of our big trees will get hit and land on the house.

This morning is a bit grey Myrl Jeffcoat but no matter what the weather I am looking forward to a GREAT day. When I move to our new location I won't have a clue what the weather is like.

Thank you for the Feature in the OLD FARTS CLUB Myrl Jeffcoat . I thought the line about getting up at night to go just might do it 😂.

BTW, do you know if we can tag a group? I have always wanted to do that when you give me the honor of a Feature.

Have an outstanding weekend.

We have been dealing with the remnants of Ian in NJ since Friday... it has been nonstop rain ... Yes we needed it too after a very dry summer for us, but in smaller doses would be nice!  and moving... we should all do it once or twice to be better equipped to understand our clients pain!  Moving offices is less than fun, but moving your entire world to a new house... WAY less fun...

We never seem to get the amount of rain we want Robert Rauf but thank God we get some rain 😂.  I agree it is good to move once in a while, especially for me... a junkaholic. After the flood we had in 2011 that destroyed my home and any belongings we didn't get out before the flood I swore I would not collect so much junk... well you guessed it, I've got more then I know what to do with.

Bob "RealMan" Timm We downsized about 18 months ago after decades in our old house... We watched episodes of Hoarders to get us (my wife) in the mood to purge!
