After a long and grinding political campaign season, it’s finally time to vote. It will be so quieting to wrap it up and move on to the pleasantries of everyday life! The political system in our country allows us to have differing opinions and ways of living, yet still function together as Americans under the same umbrella of laws and standards. It’s an ingenious model that seems so modern. Some things really do stand the test of time!
Life in the Northwoods echoes that so beautifully. The wide range of people, interests, viewpoints and lifestyles is ever-present. Yet, the appreciation for what we have here is not lost. For example, on any given day, I can run into a variety of people on the route where I walk. Usually, it’s just me, a few deer, squirrels and some woodpeckers. But earlier this Fall, I was greeted by bear hunters with their hounds, who respectfully made sure their dogs were under control and didn’t scare the daylights out of me. Then just recently, I encountered an elderly man, who, by his build, looks like he could have served in the Marine Corps. He was just trying to log a mere 13-15 miles while the sun was still out. And this Summer, I met a couple who were fishing from the roadside, while their little dogs kept watch nearby in their van. It was an outing for the gentleman who was in a wheelchair and wanted some fresh air and hopefully a fish fry for dinner.
We’re all different, but one thing that we do have in common is the love for this great lifestyle. If you’re ready to vote for a great lifestyle for yourself, we’d love to help you find a place that you can call your own. Our CENTURY 21 agents are here to help guide you through the process. Fall is a great time to get out and look, so give us a call to get started. – Wanda Boldon
