The Hummies are BACK!!

Spring is my favorite time of year.  The world re-invents itself with every little green bud poking up out of the ground or from a tree limb. One of my most favorite things about this time of year is the hummingbirds return.  Hummingbirds are wonderful little creatures ... I maintain three feeders scattered around the yard and I have noticed the little guys are very territorial and protective of their food source(s).  The dominate one(s) will chase away competitors during the day but between dusk and dark they seem to form a truce and I have counted up to four and at times more flocked around each of the feeder(s). On more than one occasion I’ve seen two hummers perched side-by-side, shoulder-to-shoulder on a single station

"If you're lucky enough to live at the lake, you are lucky enough." 
"Choose a job that you love and you'll never work a day in your life."

These are two sayings that I have heard for years. Now they are words that I live by, and I realized that just recently.

I generally work every day, all day long.  Sometimes the hours can be quite long.  It's actually a pretty good time most of the time though, like when I'm meeting new people and showing houses, or working on a marketing plan for a property I've listed.  Just like any work though, there are times when I have to work on the mundane (but oh-so-necessary) tasks that comes with my profession, like file maintenance, working on mailing lists and so on.  Just the other day, when I was doing one of

If you live and work at PK, it goes something like this:   Wake up at 6 am and check outside temps first thing. Yep, that tapping noise I heard on the windows last night was definitely not a dream - It was the sleet from the storm - I've got work to do! Definitely NOT going for a run this morning!   Time to bundle up and head off into the white beauty that is now PK to bust the water in the horse troughs and get them fed.  Bet they are greatful for their blankets this morning!
Next its off to check on seller's homes to make sure all is good with them.  Note to self:  I will need to go back once the temps raise above freezing and the thaw out begins. Don't want any flooding from busted water pipes.  While out taking care of my chores, I…

Its getting to be that time of year! Deer shed their antlers after breeding season each year  (due to a decrease in testerone) and grow them back during Spring and Summer.  The deer at Possum Kingdom shed their antlers between now and March.

The interest in shed antler hunting has began to grow by leaps and bounds. Shed hunting is similar to treasure hunting or hunting arrowheads and is great exercise, and kids of all ages can take part because no hunting license or permits are required. Antler hunting can be an activity for the whole family and I can't think of a more beautiful place to do this than Possum Kingdom.

The basics are simple. Look for shed antlers in winter food sources, bedding areas, and along the trails between these two areas. Knowing

Hi!  I admit I’m a bit nervous publishing my first blog.  I’m a lot more comfortable out on the front lines than I am behind a keyboard!

Let me get the introductions out of the way first.  I’m Pondera’s newest real estate agent, but I’m not new to the lake.  In fact, I’ve been a PK regular since I can remember, and spent long lazy summers here with my great grandparents, way back in the day.

Since that time, I’ve seen the lake change … a lot!  Quaint summer cabins are being replaced by beautiful lake homes faster than you can say Hells Gate, and one of best kept secrets in Texas is slowly leaking out – that PK is the premier spot in the state for boating, fishing, and good old fashioned lake time fun.

I moved to PK about a year ago, following a life
