Seems like an eternity

Mortgage and Lending with US Mortgages - David Shamansky NMLS#392126

I will say... while it seems like an eternity since I have been on AR or even written a post, I cannot exactly say what prompted me to log in to AR tonight of all nights but for some reason found compelled to. I think a combination between missing a lot of my old crew as well as keeping current on the happenings in the industry and BAM here I find myself writing a quickie post.

No this is not going to be filled with the best insight in the country for rate direction or predictions (yes I am extremely modest lol)  and no this post is not going to be filled with a call to action of ... why NOW is the best time to buy a home or save some money refinancing (since rates are back at the historic lows of the last 50 yrs giving each and every one of us an incredible opportunity)

I think its more about getting my feet wet and seeing if I can carve out 30-60 mins to rejoin a platform that was very near and dear to me for many years and helped create some very good AR friendships both online and in real life.

Anyway without being to corny here I am, show me some love and I will promise to try to make this a much more regular stint again!

Love AR and miss you all and hope to be back in the swing of things again

Hey David!

Good to see you back in action here. I think lots of people take breaks from regular activity here, for a variety of reasons...I have several times.

Hope business is excellent for you!

We look forward to hearing more from you on a regular basis!

David Shamansky I was curious where you had been, and then last night I saw your smiling face come across my TV not once but twice in less than 15 minutes and all I could think was.... HE's BACK!

Welcome back Dave.

I resemble your pain! I have been lurking here and just commenting on one or two posts... and posting to my blog is almost non-existant.  So I too am trying to get back in the saddle again. So, I like you find myself commenting on these post with great content.

David, there is a lot of love here in the Rain.  It is here even when we are not posting or logging in.  From time to time we may all find a need to step away from the rain ... take a break.  It if it your time to return ... we are here to love you as much as you want/need/desire.

David Shamansky ~ yo and yo! I love it - great job carving out a few minutes to reconnect here, and as you can tell you're missed! The rain is a special place and those of here understand the magic. I also have not been participating like I once was, and because I don't go back and forth like I use to, the rain is a bit different. Nevertheless, I still love the rain and it will always have a special place in my heart Your buddy in LB

David Shamansky, it's good to see you back in the rain. I'm hot and cold on my attendance, but I do miss the old gang when they're not around when I do show up.
