So you belong to a local Realtor Association. My question is do you have your big toe in it or your entire foot? The reason for this question is I have once again discovered a lot of big toes and very few entire feet. Each year Realtors pay hundreds of dollars to belong to their local Realtor Ass...

Recently I had a sales transaction that was cancelled because the buyers had a loan denial. I immediately let the Listing Agent, Title and my broker know of this unfortunate circumstance.

Yesterday, the Decades cable channel had a repeat of a salute to the Ed Sullivan Show. Among the many acts revisited were the Dave Clark Five singing "Catch Us If You Can."

Another Monday morning and it will be good for me.
