 It's easier when you know the points and marinas on Table Rock Lake. Watch my video if you're considering the Shell Knob area, since it's larger than you may have thought. Usually home buyers will consider buying here if the lake is more important over the conviences of a large town. Shell Knob ...

Midway through November in SW Missouri and we're still waiting for our first frost.... but am not complaining. I have not seen the usual duck migrations, nor have our normal 'winter' birds arrived.  Guess they know better than the professional weather prognostigators, when it is time to move sout...

KLEPTO DOG IN SHELL KNOB? It's happening again.  My dog is a canine kleptomaniac!   Last year she showed up with a rack of BBQ ribs. A few months later, it was a turkey leg, and this spring she gifted us with a ham bone complete with  meat ! Embarrassed, I spoke with our two closest neighbors who...

  Ever wonder what your dog does when you can't see him? I live in a rural area in the Ozarks on beautiful Table Rock Lake, about 12 miles from Shell Knob, Mo. Most of the time, our three acres is large enough for our dog to chase squirrels, lizards and dig up moles. However, there have been time...

SPRINGING INTO SHELL KNOBSpring may be earlier than normal, but I don't know anyone who wants winter back.  Table Rock Lake is mirror-like calm this morning.  A small group of ducks  seems to be enjoying the water, and a Bufflehead duck is diving for his lunch. Real Estate activity is picking up,...

February went out with a bang, what with the tornado whizzing down Hwy 76 in Branson, as well as parts of Kimberling City.  It did a goodly amount of damage, but no fatalities.  Knowing the spirit of Branson, it won't be long before the destruction is erased and improved.Reservations at the beau...

  "The FBI has rejected your finger prints" the caller told me! WHAT???   Not exactly what I expected to hear first thing Monday morning. "What do you mean - rejected?" I asked. " Why were my prints rejected?" There wasn't much explanation given. Many agents in our Board were finger printed afte...

GROUNDHOG DAY WASN'T TOO encouraging, but  watching the evening news, I know we are  blessed to be in the Ozarks - not  in this weeks snow event as several  northern states were.   Noticed a sign at one of Shell Knob's boat dealers: Fish Still Bite When It's Cold! Gotta love it!  Seems to be an i...

Besides doing on-line searches, i.e. Zillow, Realtor.com, etc, it would appear that younger buyers are also spending considerable time absorbing  cable tv shows.  A  favorite appears to be the Home & Garden channel, which seems to have brainwashed potential buyers with the magic words GRANITE - S...

This Week In Shell KnobIt's close, but February isn't here yet.  It has been a weird,  wonderful winter  weather wise in Shell Knob.   Just a bit of snow one day in December, which was gone by noon and temps above average - my kind of weather.  True - not the 70's which my son in Honolulu  experi...

I can't say that the Redbuds are blooming, but my Forsythia and Jonquils are popping way too early with the calendar still showing January. Winter Sunrise on Table Rock Lake   I can remember one other year, in the 20+ that I've lived here, that has been this mild.   The Ozarks (SW Missouri) tend...

Happy New Year from the Ozarks. If real estate sales will go up in the same manner that our winter temps are, then 2012 will be a good year. It has been a mild winter in Shell Knob and my outdoor thermometer is currently reading 69 degrees! Normal for January would be in the 40's. Eagle Watching ...
