Olympics and Patriotism

The only thing left is the closing ceremony. The Olympics are great to watch, and I'm always a little sad when they're over. This time they started with a tragedy, and my prayers go out to the young man's family. I'm sure he's missed, but I'm also sure he would have enjoyed these Olympics. Our neighbors to the north did a great job of hosting, NBC did OK, and our United States athletes did us proud. Our national anthem was played more than any other, and every time I hear that song, it feels great to be an American. When I hear that song I think about all of our men and women who have, and are still, giving their lives to defend our freedoms. Sport's heroes are many, but the true heroes of our country are those men and women who put it on the line everyday. Talk about sudden death overtime. These folks play that game every day, and I can only imagine the pressure they are under. Our job is to support them in their efforts, and when we have the chance, thank them for serving. I love the USA.

Jogging Shorts at 35 Degrees

We Minnesotans are pretty hearty. Only we could think 35 degrees feels like a heat wave. On my way to Pequot from Crosslake this afternoon, I saw a woman jogging in shorts! Now that is a sure sign that summer is just around the corner!

Winter Olympics

I've been watching a lot of the Olympics, and every two years, I'm amazed at what world class athletes these people are. Tonight before the Olympics started, they had a story about the skis they use. Each athlete has about 40 sets of skis, and they're so sharp and waxed, that a person that skis for fun wouldn't even be able to stand up on them, let alone go down a hill. I can't stand up on snowshoes, so I guess I'll have to hang up my dream about being a gold medal winner in the downhill. I could probably out sing them and sell more Real Estate then they could though!

Land of Sky Blue Waters

If you like a nice winter day, it doesn't get much better than this. The sky is so blue it looks like you should be able to see your reflection when you look up. No wonder they call Minnesota the land of sky blue if we could only get rid of the ice!

Good Time to Buy!

It's a little cold here in Crosslake right now, but it was perfect weather for the Winterfest this past weekend. We have lots of snow for you snow machine enthusiasts, and plenty of ice for the fisherman. It's also a great time to be buying real estate, so give me a call. For you sellers, we do have buyers looking, so you can call me too!
