Another Activerainer blogger, Sonja Patterson wrote a post today about a dinosaur event in her area - and that brought up a recent encounter I had regarding dinosaurs. Naturally I had to share it with all of you as it's such a cute story!
Most of you know I'm a avid hiker in the mountains behind our home. I also volunteer at the visitor center so I'm often helping folks navigate the trails and what to look for on their hike. And I also help many hikers with that 'confused look' on their face when I'm out hiking. I show them the way and reassure them if they get lost, somebody else will come along.
The other day I ran into a Grandma with 3 grand-kids from Canada. She had that 'confused look' so I showed her the way - and let her know I would see them on the other side as I was headed out the back trail and we'd meet again.
Sure enough we did meet ( which means she took the right trail) and the little girl didn't look happy one tiny bit!! I thought she was tired so I asked her. The Grandma says no she's not tired she's very afraid of snakes. Well that's easy I said - there are no snakes out yet because it's way too cold for snakes, so no more worries, ok? But then I added......but you do need to be on the look out for baby dinosaurs!!! Of course the kids looked at me like I was crazy and their eyes got REAL BIG. I told them about the caves just down the path....but that they didn't need to worry because it was baby dinosaurs only! I then asked the little girl if she believed me. NO!!! By then she was smiling! The little boy was quickly off on his way to find the caves and dinosaurs, of course, what little boy wouldn't. Grandma says - Thank you SOOO much! And off they went to find baby dinosaurs & explore the little caves!
Moral of the story? My dinosaur story is exactly what we do as real estate agents. We help our clients navigate the trails of buying a home, ease their fears and concerns and help them enjoy the process! Doesn't get much better than this, does it!
