Our company has started previewing houses that the agents in our company have listed over the past week.  WE see anywhere from 5 to 10 houses after the sales meeting and usually end up having lunch at the last house. This has been an great way to get agents into the houses so that they will have ...

I have been putting out sugar water and freshening it up two or three times a week for about 6 weeks trying to lure hummingbirds to my feeder.  Today I saw the first one cheerfully drinking the sugar water and then for variety getting something out of a nice red flower I have in a nearby hanging ...

On Friday, we had family from Florida to come and visit us.  What a treat.   On the first day, we put the crab pots into the creek.  Then we put the minnow trap in to see if we could catch some minnows.  With these minnows we would see what we could do to catch some bigger fish. Then that night, ...

And I am loving it... WE have family coming in from Florida to visit for a long weekend.  We are looking forward to seeing them.  We will go to the beaches, eat some seafood, pick some veggies, maybe do some crabbing and netting and of course eating some great foods... Hope that you have a wonder...

WE are making the preserves right now.  They smell so yummy.  Jimmy went to the neighbors house last night and picked them. Today, we put the stems out and washed real well.  Now they are cooking slowly at a medium temperature for about 2 hours.  We put in about 14 cups of sugar and chopped up a ...

          I AM HONORED TO DO THIS.  Did you know that the ACLU has filed a suit to have all military cross-shaped headstones removed and another suit to end prayer for the military completely. They're making great progress. The Navy Chaplains can no longer mention Jesus' name in prayer thanks to...

This weekend was a great weekend to be at the beach.  Played 18 holes of golf at Carolina National on Saturday, one of my favorite courses.  Played Oak Island today, another favorite.  Carolina National liked me better, but I think I can play better next time at Oak Island. We have over 35 golf c...

If you are interested in more details....le...

I was riding my bicycle on Caswell Beach Road and was really impressed with how nice a new house looked, then I realized that it wasn't new, just painted a very appealing green.  Talk about going green, this house looked new and I knew better!  What a payoff for a home to sell or just for persona...

What a great place to cycle, light traffic, and nice wooded ride along the Intracoastal Waterway, by the vegetation on the dunes by the ocean, usually find visitors enjoying the island and join up to ride with them.  Hard to get lost on an island!

We call it caravanning.. After each sales meeting we pick between 5 and 10 homes that well all go and see.  Today we had nine home and about 20 of us went around to view and critique each one.  It was very time consuming but I think now, at this time of the year, that is it worth it. The feed bac...

Just when we think we are moving ahead on the "new" bridge to Oak Island, which people have been talking about since at least the 1960's, work stops again, to err on the side of safety.  It seems cracks were noticed in a few of the long beams designed to span quite a distance over the Intracoasta...

Before our sales staff meeting this morning I rode 18+ miles on my bicycle. One item that was interesting was the long concrete beams loaded on a barge that is in the Intracoastal Waterway near the new Oak Island Bridge construction site.  It's amazing that these beams are to be lifted in place b...

  It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's Mega Man! Many children (both boys and girls) dream of becoming superheros when they grow up. They look up to figures such as Batman, Spiderman, and even Elastigirl from "The Incredibles," but my grandson, age 13, achieved his dream today by becoming Mega Man...

The Grandchilden are visiting from out of town... Rain is coming down and we can't get out to go to the beach or to the pool. Guess today is a Monoply Day or a Taboo Day. Tonight, we get to put up the pickles that we picked from the garden yesterday.. They will be good in salads this winter. Hope...
