I was reminded the other day of my first truck. It was a 1951 ¾ ton white Chevy panel. I bought it from the Orting Fire Department in 1967. They retired this big old fire rescue truck with its 4 speed long throw floor shifter with compound low, 17 inch wheels, a 92 hp inline 6 cylinder engine and...

In my box of old family treasures I found this Christmas Card. It was sent to my Grandpa George from his niece Julie in 1964. Though at first look it appears to be 3D, it’s actually a photograph of a handmade card. Pretty cool for 1964. Santa’s beard, coat trim, and the snow are obviously made of...

Dang it! I did it again! As is often I’m on the run when I hear the sound of those jungle drums going off in my shirt pocket. It’s one of my tribe, they need me now! My adrenaline rushes, reflex takes over. Briefcase in my right hand I snap with my left... I’m one iPhone slinging 4s digital cowbo...

One of the things I enjoy during the Holiday Season is getting out the old box of decorations to revisit those little treasures from yesteryear. Like the tree ornament my brother Terry made back in grade school out of Plaster of Paris. It weighs over a pound and would bend the branch so far you f...

I picked up the guitar when I was 13 years old. The British Invasion had just begun and I knew there was no way I’d ever become a rock n roll star playing an accordion or french horn. I spent hours and hours listening to 45 records and strumming along to learn the tunes. After I got past the 3 ch...

Last night I was thinking about the Thanksgiving stories and comments I’ve enjoyed here over the past few days. Delightful memories of family and loved ones gathered around the table enjoying a wonderful meal and telling stories about one another from back in the day. The one's that capture my he...

I was thinking about growing up this morning and how I learned about Thanksgiving. Much of it then was in school, church and sunday school and of course at home. I recall the childhood plays of Pilgrims and Indians, the little art projects we made cutting out black, white, and autumn colored cons...

The other day I was asked in a social media class, “But how does this relate to real estate?” I was talking about community and the conversation was going something like this... Most of us use online like the 21st Century Phonebook. We have a question or a need and jump on Google, Bing, or Yahoo ...

I grew up in a musician’s household. It was a public and social upbringing and we were always around a lot of people. It was understood by my brothers and I that we’d be well behaved in public and we were, with few exceptions. Not that we were kid geniuses or anything, we just understood conseque...

The one constant in life is change. Like the old saying goes, “the one constant we have in life is change.” Old Anonymous Unknown was pretty smart, I say. Someday’s the passage of time is a joy because we’re closer to what we desire, yet other days it appears relentless, a marathon, and we dread ...

Heaven knows my husband would LOVE this sign hanging in front of our house.....yes even the paycheck part!  Unfortunately for him, it hangs beneath the shingle in front of another house in Maple Valley, and likely won't grace our abode for many years to come, if ever! In the words of "A person c...
