Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a fantastic summer. It’s good to see a little normalcy coming back in recent months.
While I had intended on posting something more substantial this week, life has made that a little tricky. Last week, my wife broke her right ankle in numerous areas. She has been through one surgery and has another major surgery in about a week. She has rods running through her ankle to stabilize the bones until the swelling goes down. For those of you who want to see what this looks like, I have posted a picture of her ankle at the end of this post. It’s not for the faint of heart, so I have it at the end. (She gave me permission to share the picture)
She’s a tough cookie, but this situation has been tough on her.
Our summer has a bit of a different feel than it did a couple of weeks ago, and Murphy’s Law is in full effect as we are also in the middle of a first-floor renovation, including a kitchen remodel, which my wife has reminded me for years that we were overdue for. So, this is how our kitchen looks right now. Once the work is completed in a month or two, I will post some after pictures for those interested.
The good news is that we have awesome family and friends that have been a huge support in many ways! So, a big thank to you all who are reading this post! I normally don’t like to mention many details about what’s going on in my personal life, in my posts. But, sometimes inquiring minds want to know what’s happening. Forgive me if you’re not one of those inquiring minds.
This week, enjoy some funny posts and pictures I have enjoyed recently. Some of the Instagram posts below have more than one picture. Just hit the arrow button to the right.
I hope that you enjoy these. I will be back in a couple of weeks with some more real estate related topics of a non-personal nature.

As promised, here is a picture of my wife’s ankle. She’s practically bionic!
That’s all I have this week friends! I am working on more articles, whilst helping my wife recover, and overseeing our kitchen remodel. I will have a new article, with more substance, posted in a couple of weeks.
If you’re an attorney or real estate professional and would like to learn about how appraisers account for rapidly changing markets, like the one we are in, please join Kristin Baum and I on her seminar, where we will be discussing this topic. I’m looking forward to it, and hope to see you! A big thank to Kristin for inviting me to speak at this event!
