Wait for Me!!

Wait, What? 

After spending far too much time in the sun and not enough in the (Active)Rain - I'm so far out of the loop it's shocking. I was trolling around looking for old friends and favorite authors when I noticed something amazing. 

People have points reaching well into the 5 Million range. What? 

I remember the early days when we celebrated for the newest millionaires. I remember being one of those. Now my humble 1.5 million doesn't even rank in the top 100. I distinctly remember chasing Christine Donovan for the top spot in Orange County and watching Lenn Harley and Margaret Rome calmly sit on their Points-Thrones unruffled by the bustle coming up behind them. 

Wow - that's a lot of posts and activity!

Good for you! All of you!

 

Roy Kelley - 5,752,994
Barbara Todaro - 5,318,435 (must be an Armenian thing)

My old friends, Bob Crane, Gabe Sanders, Praful Thakkar, Kathy Streib and so many other familiar faces right behind them. 

 

Those of us who have been around the Rain for awhile know that these points represent relationships, transactions, referrals, triumphs and losses. The more points, the more of these memories are included. 

I clearly have some work to do. 

Now that my life is a little less real estate and a lot more "other stuff," I'm never going to catch these AR giants, but you never know. Things change!

I was chasing you once, could happen again.

Hi Karen Fiddler, Broker/Owner - good to see you.  Yes, it's what those points represent that really counts.  It will be nice to see you around more. D

Hi Karen - the points sorta take care of themselves while the friendships are cemented. I remember thinking I would never be on page one in California. One day, it happened.

I'm glad you're back--I've always enjoyed reading your posts.

Karen- bring it on!!!! Because if that means seeing more posts from you then I'm all for it!!!!! And you are absolutely right...those points represent not just posts written and contests but relationships and support for the other members.

Maybe sometime. With a full-time, demanding job, it will be tough, but I'd love to try.

I've eased up on the social aspect, so my point total is ever so slowly working up.  A post a day, a small number of comments, rinse lather repeat daily.

That's about it - I used to be such a points-whore. lol

Good morning, Karen... nice to see you back... hope to see a bit more of you in future. As for the value of points... spot on! So many people chase after them for all the wrong reasons. Nice reminder of what they really should mean.
