We had so much fun last night celebrating the 4th of July at a home that we built for clients some 4 years ago. Off their deck you can see the mountains of Franklin, NC and surrounding areas for miles. We could see the town of Franklin's fireworks and other folks celebrating all around. Franklin always puts on a huge event from starting in the morning with music, games for kids and special events until the one we all wait for.
We waited about a half hour before we left to miss the traffic. We don't have traffic in Franklin unless there is a big even going on. There was still cars lined up all the way down 441 south. I suppose we will have traffic now due to the Smoky Mountain Performing Arts Center just had their Grand Opening July 3, 2009 starting with the Oakridge Boys.
Rick and Cia have been coming up here to the mountains of Western North Carolina for years. They spend their winters in Florida and summers here.
They are one of the neatest people we know that have fun with life. They are always good for more than a few good belly laughs when your with them. They have some of the funniest stories about parts of their lives and their experiences. They hold many dinner parties when they are here. Interesting folks for sure.
They say you can't pick your family but you can pick your friends.
I'm thinking now we can pick our clients and they may become family.
I believe it's an HONOR to be invited to clients friends home to celebrate a holiday or just life!
It's after the sale that counts.....
