Ron Marshall - My Blogger of the Month

Real Estate Agent with Sabinske & Associates, Inc. (Albertville, St. Michael)


This is the only known photograph of the blogger here on the Rain known as Ron Marshall.  

Ron joined at the end of September 2010 at my invitation.  He has far exceed my expectations of what he would do in the Rain, and his as well.  

Ron is closing in on 200,000 points.  That isn't too bad for someone who got off to an exceedingly slow start.  He barely commented or posted a blog entry in the first three months.  But, he is a blogging fool now. 

He tells me that it is just something that starts as an itch, and he has to scratch it.  I guess that is one way to describe what we go through as we think of things to post about!  

Ron has enjoyed his time here, and his subscribers and the rest of us enjoy his comments.  He has a dry wit which I always look forward to seeing in print.  

Ron got his first feature the other day, and when I heard him talk about it, it sounded like Christmas all over again.  

Ron makes birdhouse that are replicas of local landmarks, and he does environmentally-friendly trashouts.  So, if you are in Wright, Sherburne, or Anoka Counties, please keep him in mind.  

Please visit his blog now and again to keep him encouraged to write.  

Have a great weekend!

Hi Suzanne, Does Ron know you posted this picture of him? It's actually a very nice picture but I don't think I'd put one up without getting his permission (lol). I'm a subscriber and I also enjoy his posts very much. Once, though, I inadvertently upset him when I asked him why he used the dogs for a profile picture.

Hi Suzanne - The mystery is finally solved. I'm not sure why Ron has been so sensitive about his picture - over the years, I've actually seen one or two people who are probably more hideous than that. Ron was one of the first people I got to know in AR, as were you, and I have always enjoyed his wit, but I've also been hugely impressed with his concern for his community and for people less fortunate than himself. He is a very caring, giving person and it has been a privilege to follow him.

Jill, he doesn't know....yet.  OMG, I could be in big trouble.  

Dick, he is a marvelously caring individual.  And, he will be so pleased with your comment even though he is somewhat self-depracating.  

Thanks to both of you.

What a lovely way to contribute to your friend Don.  You are really a wonderfully nurturing person.  And yes, we are writing a book on luxury marketing, and this is a great way to do it. A

Oh, this is just great!  Now, people will be asking for autographs, following me in the street, and I will have a posse besides just the cats and dogs.  

Nice write-up, but you forgot my lawn care business and the biggest one, the antique shop.  I'll forgive you....this time.
