It's Not Every Day You Get to Meet the President...

Last week President Barack Obama visited "The Peak of Good Living"

Apex, North Carolina.

Now, I don't care what your political bent is, but when someone of this magnitude (from either political party) comes to visit my tiny little town, it's big news.

 

And, your humble Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area Realtor got to meet the President.

 

After the President carefully jotted down some notes on a few policy changes I suggested, it was time for the photo shoot...

 

President Obama and Craig Rutman, your humble Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area Realtor take time out for a photo op!

 

Oh well, It's Not Every Day You Get to Meet the President!

Ed - Well, I did have a better year than he had!

Gabrielle - That was you Gabrielle? Now I know who lifeted my wallet! Oh, and about that being too serious thing. 90% of my blogs are of a humorous nature. I missed the memo that said we can't have a little fun doing what we do for a living while still getting the job done... and done right.

Marge - Glad you enjoyed Marge! I did have some fun putting this one together!

Terrie - Knowing that I've made your day just made my day. You have a great weekend too Terrie.

Frank & Karen - Clearly the President didn't know who he was dealing with! Cn I count on you to start a petition or something?!!!

Richard - Ha! Ha! Ha! Speaking of AWESOME, I haven't heard from our "Ridiculously Amazing" friend lately!

Debb- Debb, as long as you appreciate my silly posts, I'm going to keep writing them! Thank you for those kind words. It's comments like yours that give me the impetus to to blog away!

Shar - Oh Heather's there. She was just kneeling down to pick something up when the camera flashed. needless to say this wasn't one of our shining moments together!

Tom - Thank you for being glass is half full on this one Tom! You're such the optimist!

Very gracious of you to pose with the president.  He probably realizes that you can make him famous.

Is there a clown sweater in his future?

Craig, did you get that call from a man claiming to be a Super Secret Secret Service Man? Apparently when he Googled you he came across my phone number. I did give you glowing recommendations, but he kept coming back to the question burning in his mind...

Is this man dangerous?

Debatable perhaps, dangerous to my laptop screen. I now keep a cleaning pad next to me at all times. I insisted only to those who have no sense of humor....

I asked him if he knew what Photoshop was... he kept asking where you bought this photo... said he couldn't find a Yellowpages listing for Photoshop.

I gave up.

Virginia - The President did request another photo opportunity. You can see it here Virginia. And, yes, in the comments I shared the picture of him wearing the "Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater"! You can also see the "secret meeting" that took place after the event by clicking on the "secret Meeting" link above!

Cynthia - Ha! Ha! Ha.. on the hand thing! But what is this Photoshop thing you guys keep referring to? I'm unfamiliar with that term!!!

Christine - It was truly an honor!

Tom - Thank you sir! I have a million of them... and you never know what you'll see next on this crazy train I call my blog!

Frank & Sharon - It's so evident isn't it?!!!

"Danger Man"

Karen - Just little ole' me being me Karen! Glad you enjoyed!
