#BringKerrieBack

By
Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

Those of you with roots in the Active Grain community, you'll understand the recent movement to Bring back Kerrie (#BringKerrieBack).

There've been a handful of recent comments, both here and there, using the appropriate hashtag (#BringKerrieBack), trying to build some momentum.  My daughter tells me that "hashtag" is the proper terminology and it has nothing to do with fried breakfast potatoes.

At one time, way back in the interwebs Jurrasic period, there was a Greenhalg, named Kerrie who was an integral part of the way of the prehistoric webernations.  She was nimble and quick, lit up the area with her toothy smile, and wasn't pernicious in any way, in fact she was the mastic that held us all together.

One day, there was a meteor, and our precious KG (can I call her KG... no?  okay, fine) Kerrie went missing.  There was no party, no heraldry, no songs... and pfft... she and her audacious smile were gone.

And we muddled on without her.  But now, we find, that there is a grassroots effort to lure her back into our world.  I don't know if we'll be successful... but everyone who believes in a beneficent KG (I don't care if it's not allowed... I'm gonna call her KG-asaur, anyway)... clap your hands... c'mon clap!!  [wait, what?!  clapping only brings Tinkerbell back??  are you sure?? Well, we could ask her to wear that Tinkerbell costume.... no, we can't?? It's sexist!!  dammmit, everything is sexist these days]

Allright... I'm still on board without the costume.  #BringKerrieBack (and I wouldn't mind if there were some hashbrowns, anyway).

If #BringKerrieBack goes viral maybe we'll have a shot at it. Bob Stewart and Kerrie - perhaps they were even pre-Jurassic? Seems a long time anyway.

Good evening Alan May ,

I want to see this post featured..come on AR Gods make it happen! #BringKerrieBack is an awesome movement. I met her in Houston at one of the seminars and was so inspired.... And Yes Bob Stewart was there too.

Alan- I do miss Kerrie. Even though I did not have the opportunity to meet her, I did speak with her many times on the phone. If someone could light up a phone call like someone lights up a room it is Kerrie. If #bringkerrieback would work that would be wonderful 

BTW- you still have a creative and twisted sense of humor!!!

Would Kerrie come back? I've seen yea and nay (and I wasn't around that much during that era) . . .

It WOULD be great to have a community manager !

Hello Alan - many grass-roots efforts have paid off handsomely,  It seems it is always wise to say never.  Or something like that...

Hi Alan May without "law and order" there is unlawful and disorder.... someone must pay attention to what the kids are doing.... imagine a 5th grade classroom with no teacher or proctor every day....  

#boiledchicken or #boiledeggs....... no hashbrowns!!!

I don't even know KG-asaur and would like to see her back.  She must have been something if you all miss her so much.  Ok, and lets get some hashbrowns going too!  #ExtinctionSucks

Not sure how I missed this, but I'M ON BOARD! Whatever it takes, the AR Gods should know that Kerrie was the lifeblood of holding this motley crew together. So I'm joining in the clapping. Let's find out what it would actually take to get her back.

I'll take both too.  Kerrie and Hashbrowns, but I want gravy on mine.
