$550 Million - Oh my goodness - could it be ours?

Okay, we did not win -  we all know that as we are located in Westchester and the 2 winners were from Arizona and Missouri, but my office had such fun yesterday.. It was such a positive experience even if we lost. Our office totals around 50 agents or so with administrative personnel,  and we collected just $2 each - nothing earth-shattering... We trusted one agent (smile - we love Gregg) to collect, purchase, and our secretary made copies for everyone, and disseminated copies to all who participated... It was fun to just daydream about, laugh about (such as putting a closed sign on our office door once we win - just kidding - we love going to work), having fun and it was a really positive event. It did not hurt  any that our Adman, Chris, celebrated a milestone (50th) and we had all brought in food, decorations (by Katie) for the celebration (yours truly brought in the salad and 'silverware'), the 'hit' of the day was from Lillian who made THE most delicious olive bread)  and lovingly organized by our very own LouLou... (below on the left)

      

Our lives are all quite challenging between arranging appointments, negotiating difficult transactions, financing,  inspections, walk-thrus, closings and the myriad of issues that happen in between, that we all need some joy in our lives.. It is positive to do something like this (I feel) and we were united ... We are a cohesive group. We have discussed participating in the lottery each week - we shall see how long it lasts.... but even if it is for a few short weeks, then all good. It put a smile on our faces  and made us sleep well. P.S. If things ever get bad, we have also discussed renting our culinary services to the public!  We come cheap but with great love and caring and it is no surprise that our company has over 36% of the market share! !  Ha!

Westchester is Great!
