                   The Need For Speed
Some activities are best accomplished with more care and consideration than others. 

In Muskoka many of our sideroads are the only route to  four-lane highways.  Someone was in a big hurry the other day and struck a small white cat that may have darted out from the bushes. The car did not stop, but the cat did. Forever.  

In retrospect, it could be that the driver was just not thinking about  the possibility of either wildlife or a domestic pet suddenly appearing….too late for evasive action.

Real estate transactions should be conducted with caution as well, the need for speed sometimes reflects eagerness…too late for evasive action.

 What's With This? Hmmmm.                                    

Sometimes, regardless of our profession, we work with clients with our eyes wide shut – full of good intentions, sensitivity, and providing the very best service in good faith. 

Then, one little flick of an eyebrow and  intuition kicks in. “What’s with this?”  Even when we’ve given our trust, some recipients don’t take the high road, especially if things haven’t gone their way. 

Keep our peepers open! Like a good recipe, we should probably add a pinch of awareness to the mix, just in case what you see is not what you get.

Let’s Talk Turkey

At this specific  time of year  when people often congregate for a traditional dinner, the ‘f’ word is seldom overheard.  Plenty of hello(s) and “how are yas”…please(s) and thank-yous..excuse me…oops!...yummy…m-m-m good, etc punctuate conversations everywhere.

The ‘f’ word is Fortunate – and when we thank our host and hostess, whomever they may be ,  take a moment to feel gratitude and fully appreciate – the ‘f’ word.
