West Pasco Realtor Awards Banquet   The West Pasco Board of Realtors held it's Awards and Installation Banquet last Friday.  Our office was well-represented to see David Longspaugh (Broker) win his award.    And a special surprise was that our Tina Hoover won the Property Management Award.  (Tina is a special person and special friend). We were all so excited and happy for her.  She looked stunned: David had kept it a secret from her and all us blabbermouths in the office :0). He knows how we roll. David is the one in the blue shirt in the 1st, 3rd, middle pictures.      It was a sparkling evening, the food was delicious, and everyone had a great time.

Cuddle To Keep Warm - Great Idea   It has been rather cold (for Florida) the last two mornings in New Port Richey, FL., and as I pulled up the blinds in the kitchen to let in the light, this is what I found.  The two toads are cuddled up together. I had to lighten the picture so they showed up: that's a dark spot in the mornings.   There are actually three toads in the picture: one is on the wall next to the window. I wonder if all 3 were cuddling to keep warm that night? It makes me feel I should maybe build a warm shelter for toads. We could call it the SPCT. Society For The Prevention of Cruelty to Toads.       But back to cuddling to stay warm, it is a great idea as we humans know. The temperature, in case you are wondering, was 39 on Wednesday morning when we got up. Today was 43 a...

The Halloween Car Show at Verizon was lots of fun, of course, and there were some really creative ideas rolling by. Craig liked this one and took this picture. I like the teeth and the bony ridges on the back.   The VW that roared!                                 And, honorable mention has to go to the Pop-corn lady. She told Craig that they wouldn't give her any pop-corn because that would be cannibalism.                                         I think she should have gotten a prize just for wearing that thing. It was 85 out there. It was a busy weekend and I will catch up with all of you later.

 Barktoberfest 2014 is coming soon and I think this fluffy guy is super-excited about it. I wanted to share this with you to see you smile on a Monday.   This was on Facebook and one of the comments recommended using some flea powder as a cure.  I’m not sure how they got him to do this but the music is perfect.   Barktoberfest is October 26 in Sims Park, New Port Richey, FL. from 11am-3pm.  The cruise in is from 10am-3pm.      Nathan's Cupid Shuffle   No dogs were harmed in the making of this video.

Have You Said Hello To Your Roof Lately In Florida,  insurance will not be issued unless a roofer certifies at least 3 more years of life for the roof. So if you are thinking of selling your home, call a licensed, certified, roofer.     Call several and have them check your roof.  You may have to pay for roof inspections but it is well worth it before you put it on the market and get a nasty surprise.   Yes, you can do the inspections yourself but do you really know what roof problems look like?  Most of us don’t know what to look for in the valleys to indicate a leak or soon-to- be leak.  The plywood sheathing can be an issue but do we know how to find it.  Call an experienced person to take a good hard look.   When you get an offer, the buyers will have an inspection done. If roof is...

I was outside having a chat with a couple of my favorite neighbors, the Sandhill family, when Mr. Sandhill decided to entertain us with an Irish jig.  Mrs. Sandhill looks a little embarrassed but we all just took it in stride.  Hey, everyone has to have fun and relax once in a while.      It it looks like they are checking out our sign.  Maybe they weren't sure this was the right house.   The one on the left is the baby I have been watching since Spring. He had just taken a bath in the pond and was shaking it off.   Toni Weidman Broker-associate Re/Max Sunset Realty 727-237-0083
