I am putting out a warning to all.Be on the look out for the Ritist boys.They are are very  clever and usually pick on us elderly. Their plan is simple...they take you from one joint to another and never even offer to buy you a drink!! Be for warned!!!

I was coming home from town  a bit ago.   A pickup passed me and the  cut right in front of me.In doing so the boat and trailer whiplashed and stated to jerk the truck around.I slowed down and after a couple of valiant tries the truck and boat ended up  in the ditch with the boat OFF of the trailer.I slowed down, but driver got put and I Knew he was alone so I kept going.I think he was upset because I was only going 5 miles over the limit.The deer are running all over the place at this time and even my speed was a bit  it to fast.He is not making very good time  now!

After a heavy rain 2 days ago and a day of mostly clouds,the flowers are opening their blossoms to the sun.Some of the old blossoms were washed away by the heavy rain.But nature is usually ready to replace what is lost.Go out and smell the flowers.  Make it a great day.

Ok, so you claim to be as busy as a Bee.But the question is are you accomplishing as much as a bee.We have a new nest built on the side of one of our sheds.The Bee's (I believe to be a black hornet)has made some great strides in building their home.They built this in about 4 days! Did you get as much done as these bees!?

Tonight we got to meet many of our neighbors.One of them hosted a BBQ.We met people who just moved in and others that have been here for a long time.We got to know the kids and even found a couple to do some odd painting jobs and a few other chores.This is a night we will do again! What is a BBQ without a good camp fire!

If you don't have your camera's out yet...What are you waiting for?It is time to start the patterns. It is time to see the boss of the woods. Waiting until late set. or into Oct will not give you a true reading of the population.Starting now will give you a much better idea of the herds strength.

Well, the weather has been great the last few days.But this is Minnesota and it can change on a dime.Yesterday we had a very nice 71.Today 90+ with the humidity on the upswing.So, while we are  sweating out the weather here is a cool thought.Snow is on the distant horizon!

You sold the House.Now you need to pack.You don't need this or that.To food throw.LET'S HAVE A SALE!Well, if you can get it together fast, great!But many sales take weeks to prepare for.I know, my wife worked on hers for  several weeks to earn a couple hundred dollars. Sales are not bad, but if you think you will be needing one...START GETTING READY FOR IT NOW!!!!!Other wise, put it on the curb for free or get a 2nd hand store to take what they want! Remember, time is precious once you have sold your home!

WE have all heard that saying.And it is very true.I just had one of those times when dealing with an agent.She didn't check out the stuff I told her to.I had even given her the contact info she would need.But she just assumed everything was like the neighboring township.WRONG!She made the mistake, the buyer wants out.WE said ok but the E-Money stays with the seller. Buyers not happy.  Well, have the agent pay once she make the mistake!

Here is a fun way to have a camp fire.Start a fire and then put  3 small bricks in the fire.Take a hollow piece of wood and set on top of the block and let the fire come up the hollowlike a chimney.A great way to roast marsh mellows and hot dogs.It also directs the heat up when it is very warm out side.

It was a beautiful sunset this evening.Much of the beauty is because of the smoke in the air.The heartache and tragedy so many are feeling lends to some beauty many miles away. Although we enjoy what we see, we do have heavy hearts for those who have lost.May They find the strength to go on.

Saving is not that hard.If you buy coffee in the morning, make your own and put the money you saved in a can.  Not a jar, because if you see it you will dip into it. The same with lunch.  Take your lunch and put the money saved in the can. Use coupons and put the saving in a can. That extra candy bar or chips that  you pick up when you  buy gas or groceries...DON'T and put the money in the can.I have had clients that were diligent save 5,6, $700 in a months time.It can be done and many people waste more money than they know. One client quit smoking.  2 packs a day at over $100 a week.Where can  you save?

It happened again.I went into a fast food joint for a cold drink.My total was .97.I gave the teller $1.Then I dug out  2 pennies and gave it to the teller..."Here's 2 pennies." What for?"So you can just give me a nickle back instead of 3 pennies."I can't do that, it will mess  up my till. No mater how I explained it she could not get it through her head.I finally gave up. There is a study that found... 4 out of 3 people have a hard time with Math!

The phone rings...11pm.Hi Bill, Fred here.  I lost my donkey!What do you mean you lost your donkey?He is gone!.  I checked the entire pasture.  I need help looking for him, PLEASE! So away we go looking around the neighborhood.We looked for an hour looking for tracks on the dirt roads.He was afraid of someone hitting him on a dark moonless night.   (and rightly so) WE finally had to stop after about 2  hours. At 5:15, Fred got a call...FRED. GET YOUR A$$ OVER HERE NOW!!  AND TAKE YOUR A$$ HOME! Well, all's well that end's well!
