JAMMING WITH THE OLDIES While visiting with my step-father we had the privilage of attending a "Jam Session" at The Grove, the retirement park he lives in. It was really a treat. There were about two dozen musicians and each one took a turn at the mike. It was mostly old Bob Wills type of music ...
WHERE DID ALL THE BOOK STORES GO?   While visiting down in the San Juan (Pharr) TX area I was struck by how far we had to travel to find a book store. Our host had taken us on several sight seeing trips over the Christmas celebration and in those many trips we never saw one. We had been keeping ...

Just Saying...  Shortly after becoming a Real Estate professional I saw the wisdom of becoming a Notary Public so I could close mobile home sales right in the office. That was quite a few years ago and I still have not used my Notary authority to do just that. I have done hundreds, if not thousa...
MY HHR... GOT ANY POINTERS?   Time for a Timm family new (used) car. My Bride needed newer, more reliable wheels so we went used car shopping. As much as I would like to have found one at a local dealership we had bad luck with that plan. Instead we did have good luck with our local on line want...
