I was sitting on phone duty last week when I received a phone call asking to show a 25,000 camp in Port Barre, LA. I probably should have said no right off the bat because the location is 45 minutes away so if I did sell this house the gas money would out weigh the commission. But being the nice person that I am I went anyway. So while doing all the normal prep work I registered my showing and printed out the showing instructions. The instructions caught my eye. Right there in big bold letters BEWARE OF REPTILES HOME IS ON THE BAYOU!
That is just not something I want to deal with. I got to thinking the showing agent should have been more specific. Did she mean large or small reptiles. Snakes or Alligators! If snakes what sort of snakes. And if I should encounter them what should I do? Where was the nearest hospital!? She gave just enough information for my mind to run wild and wander upon every possible bad situation.
Needless to say that was not a pleasant showing. I was looking around for creepy crawly things the whole time. Not a fan of things that slither around on their belly.
Hope I gave you a chuckle for the day. Not every day you are told to watch for harmful animals. Just a day in the life of a realtor in Louisiana

That's when she said I don't hate you boy, I just want to save you while there is still something left to save. That's when I tell her I love you girl, but I'm not the answer to the questions you still have.

Store Windows

Don't you just love when a store window catches your eye enough to make you want to enter? No I didn't go in but that is only because I wasn't in need of glasses. Strange display for an optical shop.

LSU Tigers Callin' Baton Rouge Video 2009

I am getting so excited for Football season!


So this is my first view of those cute London Taxis. We had to ride in one yesterday because of the rain. The cabbie was quite cheeky. He totally agreed with me on politics which I thought was amusing.
I do wish New York would have Taxi stands like Paris and London. So much easier to catch one then to hail one. Maybe not as much fun.

Rain, Rain, go away! Come back when I am in Italy!

So it is raining here in Jolly 'Ole England. AGAIN! Can't catch a break. It's hard enough to get these three 11 year old girls to get dressed and on the train into the city but in the rain forget about it! I feel really horrible that they want to stay in watch TV and play on the computer all day and they are perfectly content to do this for days on end. Am I being a bad babysitter? I am going to make them get a move on and take them to the Tate Modern. Not sure how that is going to go over since they complained about the Crown Jewels at the Tower of England yesterday! I mean who doesn't enjoy 530 carat diamonds!? Am I asking too much of kids? Does this mean I will be a terrible mother someday?

So I feel like it is always dark and dreary here in London. It is has pretty much rained the entire time I have been here.They say Seattle is rainy. I think London tops that. Just missed getting caught in a huge downpour this afternoon after leaving the Tower of London.
