Not sure quite where to start with this post as it's  about a  blessing as well as  a sad time. Deborah the lovely lady in pink. is very near her end of life as I type.  Her husband is the guy looking intently at her with a happy smile.  These two met years ago at a network function we hosted at ...
 Meet Norman!  Our newest member of the family!  A family that was moving out of state was not able to take him with and wanted to find a forever home for this sweet little pup!  He's a 2 1/2 year old Shih Tzu and yes his name is Norman!  The little girls in his first family named him after a car...
Phoenix is a fabulous place to be during the fall season!  The weather is perfect, the sun is shining and it's fun to see the fall decorations all around town.  Truth be told, I secretly pull out a few fall decorations in early September just to get the party started!And speaking of parties we he...
Being happy is easier than you think if you follow this easy recipe.  Ok maybe having all the patience you need to deal with 'whatever or 'whoever' is having a tough day or week can be a bit trying.  Or not. I was fortunate to learn and model "To Think Is To Create' at an earlier age.

The four of us have had a...
 Someone mentioned today that Sunday is August 1st. Are you kidding me? I had to look at the calendar to get a handle on just how the summer is flowing by fast - so fast! It's been a very busy (and good year) and I'm so ready to take a break for awhile. Thus - I hope to be back in the swing of bl...
Appreciate Today! Gary and I start and finish every day with gratitude and thankfulness for the good life we are able to enjoy.  This past year, we've thought this, even more so quite frequently. It's given us the chance to 'sort' through what we really enjoy doing and do more of that. We are als...
 Hi My name is Barney. I am my Mom's assistant and I'm flat worn out! She caught me sleeping in her office today (guilty). I've been so busy scheduling appointments for buyers to view our listings and helping Mom deal with multiple offers. Finally today, I had a break in action and  could spend s...
 'Being about excellence' has been my motto for many years. It means that I will go the extra mile, or ten, to give our clients the best possible service. Giving the best possible service is almost as great as receiving excellent service. And when 'things' don't go as expected and the service is ...
