Nobody But Me ~ Things You Might Need to Know About Someday

Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

After reading through many of the entries in Kathy Strieb's Challenge this great old song came to mind. Life is far too short to sit around complaining or being negative all of the time. I see and talk to people a lot in this industry, agents and customers alike who are struggling to get rid of stress. It's not a magic pill type of disorder it's your state of mind. Think negative and you'll become negative, it's that simple. Positive attitudes trump negative ones at every juncture. You just have to allow its entry into your soul. How you accomplish this is daunting at first but I'm going to give you the first step here thanks to YouTube, ActiveRain and Kathy Strieb! Here's a snippet from The Office to get you started

I didn't know Kathy had started this challenge- I am a 66 year old Scorpio -who likes red wine- siblings from separate mothers?

Lise, I wish I could provide you her original link but canmot find it at the moment. I believe she wanted our posts in the comments there. No points, it's all for fun! Haven't met a Scorpio who doesn't like red wine BTW.

A fun read Kevin J. May . BTW my very 1st LP was CCR and I love Brenda Lee's "I'm Gonna Lasso Santa Clause".

Green River was my first album and their 3rd. Thanks for that link "RealMan" it's new to me. At 9 years old "Little" Brenda Lee had some pipes!

Dear Kevin,

Looks like you have a very relaxed kitty to keep you company. I hope your cancer disappears too. Sucks to have it.

Sinatra had his picture taken at rest because while awake the focus would be impossible. He passed a few years back. Regarding cancer, that answer was not for my sake but for the 17,000,000 people it affects each year. Thank you Dorte!

Kevin, very funny and needless to say some of the serious ones I even agree with, such as getting rid of the C word...Endre

I could not survive a day without some jesting Endre although we all could make do without cancer. It has surrounded me as long as I can remember and has certainly outstayed its prevalence in the World!

Hi Kevin, I've put these details away in my mind, just in case I ever need them. Love the back seat driver trait! That really made me laugh.  I've been a bit gobsmacked by how may people say Brenda Lee's Rocking Around the Christmas Tree was their favorite holiday song. That must be why they play it so often on the Christmas music channel here in Charlotte!

Dec 13, 2018 05:10 AM

I believe it has been on Billboard's Top 100 Christmas songs since 1960 and peaked at #3 in '65 even though originally released in 1958 then again in 1959. Brenda Lee's popularity kicked into gear in '60 which could explain things.

Good morning Kevin. I like you attitude and agree. Be happy or not: you choose.

At times I believe some people have lost the ability to be happy. There's enough negativity already and no need to add into it.

Your posts are always so much fun to read and I really enjoyed getting to know more about you!  Do you hang out with any ghosts?

Dec 13, 2018 09:32 AM
Kevin J. May

I have had three instances where I believe ghosts visited me. Twice in PA and once in Stone Harbor, NJ. None since my 28th birthday although I could hang out with them I think if the opportunity arises.

Kevin- thank you so much for sharing with us!!! I love your dry sense of humor!!

You know what's funny is...even though I said The Christmas Song is my favorite holiday song, I usually end up humming or singing Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree! I'm also laughing at you being a back seat driver!!!

You are welcome Kathy. this was fun even though some exposure was needed. It's not a place I usually venture to. Who is the artist and version of The Christmas Song you like? Nat King Cole or The Raveonettes
