It's Friday! Time For a Little Fun Before a Busy Weekend Here in the Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex Area...And the Chance to Win a Prize Too!


For those of you who know me, you're well aware that I love my job of helping home buyers and sellers in the Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area.

I also love my "no shave, work from home" days too.

Today is just that day!

But, I will caution you, it's not a pretty sight!

I do enjoy my "no shave, work from home" days. But it's not a pretty sight!


After a very busy week (a new listing, some very motivated buyers, and one of my properties under contract), I'm taking the day off!

But not before I poke a little fun at my good friend, home inspector extraordinaire, Michael Thornton. (By the way, if you're not subscribed to Michael's blog, you're really missing out on some great stuff.)

Anyway, here goes....

The Contest

It's very simple.

All you have to do is give the picture below a caption.

Michael and I will be the judges.

Hint: The caption that makes us laugh the most will probably win!

There are some rules and eligibility requirements, and you can see them here: Rules and Eligibility Requirements.

Well, that seems simple enough.

But is the prize worth my efforts?

I'm glad you asked!

The winner will make a guest appearance in one of my upcoming blog posts, be vilified recognized by their peers, and be awarded their choice of a copy of Michael's latest CD, "A Very Michael Christmas" or a limited edition Craig Rutman Action Figure Doll, or the equally limited "Realtor Craig Bobble Head" doll!

OK, my dear readers, give it your best shot...

Give this picture a caption and win a prize!

Craig, I didn't get to this earlier, and I'm almost sad that I did make it. Michael has to find a different way to drum up business. Being a contestant in the Nashville Spring Pageant isn't going to help his image.

Pat - I liked Sharon's "Allergy Warning" too. Very well played on her part!

Laura - Just tell me what kind of computer you have Laura. I purchased a bunch of new laptops for just this reason! Your replacement will be of equal or lesser value!!!

Mike - If I made you laugh, then my mission has been accomplished!

Nick - I do believe I've seen one or two of those here. But your entry will be considered my friend!

Pamela - Does Pamela Lee really jump out of cakes? I remember when I was dating her she wasn't that wild!

Dawn - Both he and I have been frighteningly busy these past few days. But I'll probably speak with him tomorrow and we'll come up with a decision. But regardless, Dawn, You're all weiners winners in my book!

Sharon -Whenever I drive down to Florida, those billboards are a great way to pass the time for my little one and I. Some of them are just so goofy. But they're fun on a long trip.
