FISHING MEMORIES ARE THE BEST Cleaning our boat today - or scrubbing about anything - tends to let my mind wander.  I heard a loud splash on Table Rock Lake, which usually means a large bass  flipping his tail at me.  And that brought to mind a comment made by a client  this week. "I haven't had ...

And no - this...

COME ON IN - THE WATERS FINE I am happy to report that the water is no longer at flood-stage on Table Rock around Shell Knob, or  the rest off the lake communities that make up this great part of the Ozarks.   It went up to 933' at it's worst in April, and with the monsoon- like rains that contin...

  CALL ME THE LOT LADY   When I first started my real estate career, I only thought about selling houses.  That's what real estate was all about to me.  I sold a drug store once, but found myself more drawn to the Burbs and new subdivisions.  It was fun being able to find the perfect home for a f...

That may be tr...
