Having a good insurance agent can really pay off in so many ways. The allred insurance burlington nc has been such a good and positive experience throughout the years. There is no way I would ever even think about switching any of my insurance policies, although according to all of the commercial that we are bombarded with, there might be a cheaper rate out there with another company.

My father always says “If it ain’t broke, don’t try and fix it”

Another one of his favorite sayings is “If you can’t fix it with a hammer, get a bigger hammer”  LOL!

Last minute ordeals are not my cup of tea these days. I remember the days when I could just drop everything and go with the flow, but those days are long gone. I really miss the days of being so spontaneous, but it happens to the best of us, I fear.

Yesterday morning my sister called in a panic and made be promise to go with her that night to a big party that she could not miss and could not face going alone. Being as her phone call woke me up, I wasn’t 100% awake and didn’t quite realize the commitment that I had just made. It takes a lot of time and effort to get ready for a business party. Dressing up and stepping out isn’t something that I do that often so I have gotten out of the habit of preparing for an event like this. But I can truly say that it was worth all the hassle and a good time was had by all.

The house that this party was held at was one of the most elegant houses I’ve ever had the pleasure of being in. Too bad that the owners aren’t around most of the time to enjoy all of it’s benefits. I really loved the slate water fountains that they had in located at various strategist positions in the house. There is something about water that just soothes my mind, body and soul. I would give anything to have a master bath such as the one that these folks had in their master bedroom. If I had a jacuzzi in my bathroom, I swear you would never see me, I’d be in there the majority of my time. I can guarantee that!

If I take some time and order now I am sure that I will get some of the Christmas gifts that I need for the up and coming Christmas gift giving exchanges. Last there were a few things that I kept putting off and it made me a nervous wreck. It really took some of the fun out of the holidays, stressing that there wouldn’t be anything for me to give back to some of the good folks I knew were giving me some pretty nice gifts. I really don’t want that to happen again!

It’s good to know that not all attorney practices are totally in their field to make a fortune off of people in their times of need. I have always heard that there are lawyers will do a case now and then “pro bono” which is a fancy legal phrase that means “for free” and/or “no charge”  but I have never known anyone that has received any legal pro bono, but I’ve heard stories.

A good friend of mine has some how managed to convience the EGH Law Firm to do just that! I don’t know all the details because she isn’t putting a lot of details on FaceBook and we don’t call each other on the phone all that much these past few years. She doesn’t much care to put a lot of personal information online. But I hope they do her justice. And just maybe when this case is all done and said with she might be more open about talking about it.

I don’t have the time or much opportunity these days to read much more than the newspaper or a magazine or a Reader’s Digest perhaps, which I always has several copies conveniently located in the bathrooms in the house. But that doesn’t mean that once in a while I’ll find a book that really interests me and I will take the time to do what I can in reading it all the way to the end.

My daughter actually had me in mind when she and her friends went to the local flea market yesterday when she was looking through a box of books that were being given away for free. She is an avid reader and loves looking for new and exciting books to bring home and when she sees books that are being given away she usually walks away with an arm load.

This box contained a book written by Jimmy Buffett, by the name of “A Salty Piece of Land” a novel. She knows that her dad and I are both avid Jimmy Buffett fans from way back and she went ahead and picked it up for me along with a bunch of other ones for her from this box of free reading materials. That was a pleasant surprise, she is always surprising us with things, and they are not usually on the pleasant side I’m sorry to say.

a good read
