I'm Going To Do it Again

Real Estate Agent with RETIRED 200305001

I am taking a real vacation, like we did in the 70's an 80's.   NO CELL PHONES, laptops or Ipads. I will NOT be calling in to check on things. I also will NOT be telling people how to find me! My kids have been there with me before and Know where but not how to reach me. There is NOTHING that can't wait 6 days til I am back.

Deal going sideways can die or wait. I have done this before and urge you to try it!

Shortly I will be on a REAL VACATION, like we did in the old days! A roll of quarters for a pay phone, NOPE. Whats a phone? Your thoughts??

Good afternoon Rob. I think this is great. Even those with a heart in a cooler should take a break. Enjoy your holiday.

You are a better man than I am Gunga Din! (poem my Rudyard Kipling). Tough for to do, I have to admit.  If one has a real estate team it makes the vacation much easier though. Jeff

I have no problem with the real estate vacation. I think it's a wonderful idea. With five daughters and five grandkids, the thought of being incommunicado gives me trepidation. Best of luck to you!!

Mimi: We have 3 grown kids and they know Dad an Mom need space, Its only 6 nights. Remember what it was like when your folks took you on vacation. I doubt they worried about what was happening.
