Friend

Friend True friends aren’t perfect, they sure are loyal When they have a problem with you, the pain is royal But consistency is a gift not many will give you And when things go down I know where to turn to So I’m thankful for someone who knows I’m lost And wants me around anyway, no matter the cost I give not because I owe, … Continue reading Friend

I think you’re confused…

Please tell me agents in SE MN understand the difference between NorthStar’s well regulated “coming soon” program (where no showings are allowed until the home is on the market for all buyers) and a broker having an “Exclusive Buyer Program” where only that broker’s clients see their coming soon listings for 2 weeks prior to any other buyers, right?  (Agents who understand the industry call this … Continue reading I think you’re confused…

Time

A dying man laying in a hospital bed regrets things His fingers are so skinny they won’t hold his rings He spent many Sunday mornings alone in a pew And now he’s surrounded by only a loyal few The past is bittersweet as it runs through his mind He thinks of all the times he was mean instead of kind He travelled the world and … Continue reading Time

Amendment #2

The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” You’ve probably heard of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.  The NRA and other groups constantly bring the Amendment into the limelight.  It’s the pillar of … Continue reading Amendment #2

Civility

Social media and the internet have made so many people so much louder.  Cardi B is basically teaching young girls that if you just yell louder you win the argument, regardless of merit.  The Game calls Tomi Lahren a “microwaved carrot” and somehow that means he wins the debate about 21 Savage illegally staying in the US after his work visa expired.  On the internet, … Continue reading Civility

The Truth About Trump

Opponents of the President have seemingly exposed themselves to the remaining Americans with brain cells swimming around in our heads.  They’ve gone from 2 years of “collusion” straight to delusion.  Rachel Maddow (MSNBC), everyone’s favorite meltdown artist from Election Day 2016 (I’ll leave this here…), has doubled down on collusion.  After her vehement faith in the almost 2 year long Special Counsel led by Robert … Continue reading The Truth About Trump

John McCain

The Maverick is gone, but with news headlines across the nation mentioning a continued feud with President Trump, you’d think he was still the Senator from Arizona. Let’s agree to remember John as the war hero he was.  Let’s try to forget that time President Trump diminished that during the campaign – “I like people who weren’t captured.”  A stupid comeback and a gaff that … Continue reading John McCain

Lea

Here’s the second blog in my series of people in my life worth writing about – hope you like it. Lea Lancaster.  My co-worker and friend. She’s the epitome of what it means to be genuine.  God made her with an inability to be fake.  She is passionate about her kids, her career and wine (I sometimes tease her about the latter).  Every problem she … Continue reading Lea

Quiet

I’ve got lots to say, but no good way to say it.  I’m past worrying about disappointing anyone.  Like I’ve said before, you can care about people and ultimately not care if they disagree with you.  Political people need to learn this as soon as possible. Wisdom isn’t always knowing what you should do, sometimes it’s understanding what you shouldn’t. For instance, I’m smart enough … Continue reading Quiet
