let it rain

i've been away from the Rain for awhile.

It seemed to me that since I had moved to the treasure coast from over on the Gulf, Ft. Myers, and Cape Coral more specifically, that Active Rain wasn't as active. At least that's what I lead myself to believe.

I've been a Rainer for, I don't know for sure, 6 years 7 years, but today i went to only my 2nd meetup, hosted by Mr. Tolbert, Kevin to most, I believe.

The atmosphere was very positive, and it made me remember that Active Rain has been very good to, and for me. I enjoyed myself with some very nice people. I shared some of my Active Rain magic moments, got some smiles, and had some laughs.

It brought to mind that many times when we think that something's not working for as as well as it has, or it's different than it was, that often it's us who isn't working , or that maybe we've changed the way we do things, or don't do things, not always for the better.

So I like to give Kevin, a little shout out here, and thanks for helping me get reinvigorated in my relationship with the Rain, and the Rainers. So now its time for me to reengage and

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain

Fred,

thanks, in my years, we'll leave out how many, I have wondered occasionally.

not quite up to BC, but I'm originally from NH so I've crossed the border numerous times.

There are some fantastic people here in the rain.  I've learned a lot hanging out here.  And it's always nice to meet some in person for the first time.

Jay:  Funny how some areas of the states "get" AR much better than others.  But whether a small or large bunch of AR members are nearby ... they are great support, great people, and fun to meet and talk with.  Glad you're back in the Rain!

Tammy,

the Rain has always been a real friendly place. the meetup also gave me a chance to see the enthusiasm of some newbees.

Amanda & Jared,

thanks, i'll be active as there are a lot of interesting things going on in the mortgage world.

Bruce,

thank you

Jill,

it seems like it was just a little recharging of the batteries.

Kathleen,

thanks

Paula,

if you get a chance check out a meetup in your area. i liked it.

Kat,

the Rain has started again, and it looks pretty steady right now.

Mike,

over the years I have learned a great deal from the Rainers.

Gene,

thanks, moving creates many distractions. when i noticed intially the lack of activity i choose to place my emphasis on other areas. Now thanks to Kevin Tolbert I'm back in the sattle, and ready to ride.

 

thanks all for your kind words

Hi Jay,

Welcome back.

In a prior comment, you admit to being from NH?  Same here, Somersworth. Still home to everyone else other than me, since it seemed I was the only one who wanted to see what was outside the Granite State.

i was born and raised in Dover, and had lots of friends from somersworth, still do. I'm 61 (soon 62) and graduated from Dover High in 1970.

I did some business with the Daigles, and then Kerry had the C21 office, Home Team I believe.
