Waiting can make one a bit CRAZY. Les passed his final exam for auctioneers school but must now wait until he is snail mailed the transcripts. At the same time his copy is mailed the testing center in TN will also be mailed a copy.

Once he has his, we then snail mail a copy of the transcript along with $220.00 and a very simple application requesting to take the PA state exam. Once TN has the money, the app and the transcript (even though they have one already) they will snail mail the testing center info to him. He then calls the testing center to set-up a time.

Really people? in this day and age of computers all of this must go thru the USPS?

So, we are looking at Les possibly having his auctioneers license by mid to late July, yes we started this when it was still Winter and we will be entering late Summer when he has the paper in hand. Until that time we are waiting and going CRAZY!

Special Month

Happy May Everyone! Hope that the weather is changing for the better for all of you. We have had nice days and not some nice days, but like the saying goes "Don't like the weather, wait an hour and it will change.

May is a special month for me/us. First off it is our anniversary and this year it is our 40TH!! Wow, really where has the time gone? Other then dinner out, we our laying low. This Winter/Early Spring has been very costly at the old farmhouse, oil, plumbing, etc. But we will get to celebrate again this month when Les (hubby) graduates from Auctioneering school. And while he will not officially be an auctioneer until he takes the state exam and passes he will officially be done with school on May 14th. It has been a long 10 weeks for us both but I am so proud of him, that he had the courage at his age (62) to decide it was time to make a change for the both of us.

Looking forward to working side by side with my auctioneer :-). Please keep him/us in your thoughts and once he passes I will let you know. And maybe we can do an auction for you!!

Yep this was the year we became husband and wife.

Here are a few pictures of our "special day"
