  • I Found the American Dream at Smile4u

  • Suck it up buttercup!

    I think saying “He’s not my President is one of the most unAmerican things one can say. I googled unAmerican which means contrary to the interests of the US and therefore treasonable. OK so maybe not treasonable in today’s standards when our President uses Twitter like toilet paper. I read hes twitted 2461 times (or… Read more »

  • Zapatos Para Los Ninos. One little day in the World, one big day in my heart!

    When someone asks me what I do for a living I’m not always sure what to say…and I guess it depends on what kind of mood I’m in! I give responses that range from I invest in real estate, I’m a private land investor, I wholesale land across the Western United States, or I am… Read more »

  • Damn girl you did it!

    I’m getting bored – there I said it! Lately I find myself more interested in whose feather I found on a property than selling the actual property!

    We took a few hours in March 2017 to view land in Meadview and made our way up to Pearce Ferry, Arizona.  Pearce Ferry sits on the west end of the Grand Canyon and is the only place where you can access both Lake Mead and the Colorado River by personal watercraft. It’s about 2… Read more »

  • Lived to tell.

    Life is good but even I go thru those times when dang it’s hard! The sun is shining today and my best friend is sleeping in his bed beside me! Damn I love that little man! I grew up on a 10 acre farm and escaped to our barn to get out of a chaotic… Read more »

    A lady called me this afternoon and said she had two lots her Mom and Dad bought 50 years ago – Dad has passed away and Moms getting old and they’ve done nothing to remove Dad from the title. She saw I was selling them for $1000 and asked what I thought of it. I said… Read more »

  • Day 6: Some Strong Women Need to Learn to Set Boundaries & Like to go Fishing!

    It became a joke this past couple years between a couple of my closest friends who had listened for hours about my crazy personal life, that I was the President of the Broken Pecker Pickers Club! Probably totally incorrect to post that to my blog but it’s my blog, my social media. And if I’m… Read more »

    Happy Sunday! A day of rest for me and the animals as its rainy in the desert. Sitting here reflecting today on just how many places I’ve got to see in the past 15 years. Oh I love exploring the desert! She is so unexpected! I visited friends up in Flagstaff last night and it… Read more »

    It’s Saturday – what was I thinking I was going to blog every day for 30 days – that includes Saturdays and Sundays! I took a walk with my dogs this morning out to my thinking rock but it started to rain. Back in the house bored, I decided I’m going to take a few… Read more »
