Roses Are Always Pleasant To The EyeAs I was finishing up some work at my parents house, I looked over to their back fence and realized that I  needed a few extra minutes.  I did a little pruning and clearing and then too the photos.They are brilliant and have no smell, which I understand is a good thing as the non-fragrant flowers last much longer than those that have a bouquet.They are pretty and will be around for maybe another week or so and then it's wait until next summer. Wordless Wednesday (Almost) Roses Are Always Pleasant To The Eye

I Take Regular Hikes of 6 Miles Each Trip I have an addiction that I have had for 60 years. I like to play golf. My wife has said that she is the second love of my life, and I now better than to argue with her.My skill level may not be what it was at one time, but I still play better than most though but not as good as the kids 30-40 years my junior, but handicaps are the great equalizers.On a crisp morning or even a sunny morning there is a feeling that takes over and we become one with the environment, except for the words uttered over a bad shot.When on vacation, we will take walks around a golf course especially those that are so well maintained and it is so very peaceful.I ill continue to enjoy my walks until the day comes when I am forced to ride in one of those carts, but I do ho...

In the current market, selling a home is not as difficult with low inventory.

Memorial Day 2021  Remembering The Cost Of FreedomOriginally started after the Civil War as a day of remembrance for the fallen soldiers on both sides of that war, Memorial Day as evolved into a day of honor for all combatants who gave their lives in any war our nation has been involved with since.As a kid in grade school, I well remember seeing veterans on corners with poppies for sale, raising money to plant flags on graves of veterans on this Holiday.  The significance was something that came into focus when we had to learn the poem "In Flanders Fields".The poem was written by a surgeon after a particularly bloody battle in World War 1.  As he viewed the battle field after the carnage and exhausting work, he was startled to see the red poppies waving in the grass stained with the blo...

Continuing Education:  Understanding Racial Bias In Real EstateThis week was a busy week for me, and adding to it was the Continuing Education class that I took to fulfill the requirements for license renewal, something we real estate agents all need to do every 2 years.I was fortunate to be able to take one of the 2 Mandatory courses offered as a Zoom class,. Attendance was monitored and being on screen for the 3 hours was a requirement to completing the class for credit, and any small absence was noted.The course title was Understanding and Preventing Racial Bias in Real Estate, and it was very detailed for content as to how real estate has been attempting to foster equality although not always successfully.  As recently as the late 1960's to 70's, laws had been enforced to prevent pe...

There Is Always Someone Waiting For Their TurnOur breakfast table has a great view of the yard and also the bird feeder just outside the window. We ca see the birds as they swoop down to grab a bite and also how the smaller birds will jump off as a larger bird approaches. As these 2 yellow finches sat on the support rod, they seemed to be having an exchange and the lower one was chirping hard at the higher finch, who then flew away.  Now I don't claim to understand bird speak, but from the reaction I saw I'd be willing to guess that the higher finch cowered, relied yes dear and flee back to protect the nest.Mom then sat and ate a bit and maybe lingered a little longer than needed to show who's boss.The animal/bird kingdom have a specialized priority system. There Is Always Someone Waiti...
