"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to TAG ME in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Hi Carol, Thank you for featuring my "Temporary Inconvenience - Permanent Improvement" post. It was a nice surprise and I appreciate it. I have to share one thing with you...when our Safer at Home order went into effect, golf courses here were deeded essential services and allowed to remain open (with certain safety measures). When I heard that I thought of you...but a lot of people here cannot understand why golf is essential!  :))

Hi Diana Zaccaro 
I'm not sure golf course were considered so much "essential" as low risk.   They put in quite a few changes to make them more so.  I know many states never shut them down. Our state did. They are being allowed to reopen on Tuesday and I'm excited about that.

Carol, I just read 3-4 shared posts.  I've not been active with blogs for some time now.  I do enjoy reading and commenting.  Today I've spent an hour or more doing just that.  I miss it yet time is a factor for me.
