On my way home from photographing a new listing this evening, I had to pull off of the road to take a picture of this beautifully vibrant rainbow that God placed over the Friendswood sky.   It was bigger and brighter than the ones we normally see. And apparently in some areas it was seen as a full-blown horizon-to-horizon rainbow. I took a few pictures by the water tower as I came into town, then drove to Friendswood Lakes, a more scenic spot to capture the beauty. Unfortunately, I didn't get to the lake before the sun started to dip and the rainbow started to fade away. Oh well! It was beautiful anyway!

 TABBY TUESDAY’S!   Friendswood has their cat act together! During the month of October all Tabby Cats will be available for $25 on Tuesdays! This is a great deal as these kitties are all spayed or neutered, have received all of their shots AND have been micro chipped! You can’t get this kind of a deal anywhere else! So if you are ready for a cat get on down to Friendswood Animal Control at 3000 W. Parkwood, Friendswood, and pick out the cat that “speaks” to you.

Hurricane Season 2013 Did you know that if there is a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico you cannot get flood insurance until after the disturbance is gone? Be sure and check to see that you have the right insurance, HOME INSURANCE IS NOT FLOOD INSURANCE. Its hurricane season here for us gulf dwellers. Are you ready for a hurricane? I guess the first thing to get ready for this season is not to wait until the last minute. Check and see that your insurance is up to date and what exactly your insurance will cover and how much coverage it will give you. It can get tricky. If you live within a possible evacuation location you should do some or all of the following: ·        Get most important papers copied and email them to yourself; ·        Put the originals in a safe dry place, maybe a ba...

It has really been hot in our area and usually is in August and September. The public swimming pools are crowded and you can't rent a public swimming pool if you wanted to! The next best thing to do is to own  your own home with a private in ground pool.   Owning a home with a private pool allows you to experience the quite and private relaxation that a person sometimes needs at the pool side. Currently to have a pool installed it would cost about $35,000.00. If you are in the process of looking for a resale home think about buying one with a pool. It is less expensive to buy a home with a pool already installed as oppose to having one constructed.    There are 47 homes for sale in Friendswood with private pools. The lowest listing price is $159,900.00, with the highest price being $4,7...
