"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.   

This Week's Theme focuses on entries into the Holiday Fun and Cheer Challenge.  There are still a few days left to get your entries in.

Loved several of them that I read but, I think I missed Dorie's! I need to go catch that one. What a great list of entries and like you, I loved Ray's fruitcake post. I'm still laughing at Johnny Carson's bit on it - regifting - hilarious!

Hi Raymond Henson, SRES, GRI 
Fruitcake is a hot topic at Christmas time and you're the only one to tackle it... and with humor!  LOL

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS 
Ray actually makes me want to try his recipe for fruitcake.  I think that tip on how to tell when it is done could be a critical factor.

I'll definitely be there Tuesday for the wrap up on 2020.
