How all over the Olympics are you?  Like Disneyland and Christmas and making shapes out of clouds, the Olympics are one of those things that get better if you experience them from a kid’s point of view.  I’m old enough to remember Olga Korbut, and Nadia Comaneci, and the ’84 Olympics were in my hometown.  The next Olympics I was a full-fledged adult, and I would be hard-pressed to name any of the big personalities that came out of those years.  Anyway, I am digging this go around, especially the Opening Ceremonies and the swimming.  I LOVE the swimming.

But apparently, some people are digging selling things that you can’t really sell – like this Richland homeowner.  I love his justification that the cloud is over his house, so he should be able to sell it.  He has a real estate point, you do own the air space above your land.  I can’t remember hoe high up the ownership reaches, though.  Plus, he makes me think of a good friend who, when reprimanded for taking time off work to get his hair cut, rejoined “My hair grows on company time, why shouldn’t I get it cut on company time?”

In case you forgot about this post, this KEPR story spotlights THE place to get cheap gas in town.

AND, as big Ace of Cakes fans, the McGee family loved this story from last week.  Mary Alice used to LIVE in the Tri-Cities, which just goes to show you, we produce quality people here.

American Idol, baby!!  Local auditions took place this week, in Pasco.  Look for Elysia Villanueva during the early shows next season.  Maybe she’ll go all the way to Hollywood??!!!

Guess what?  That’s all.  Have a great week!

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
