ChitChat And JibberJab


While I am not channeling Lewis Carroll, I am thinking of the different ways of connection.  Of course, conversation in all forms as shown in the communication expressed in this post title is but one of those. 


Sometimes a connection comes from an unlikely source or even one we might have previously overlooked or intentionally ignored.  Messages can be delivered in subliminal ways or by more obvious methods. 



And the wandering and wondering continue.   Does gab come to mind or is it gossip?  Banter perhaps.  Maybe none of the above or all of them combine.



Discuss among yourselves.  Go ahead.   Let's see if we can make sense of it.

Hello Michael, I remember a girl in my teens talk with her eyes to me, and I remember laughing with others and having great times.  Bay talk with my young girl was always special.

Will Hamm - I am sure those batting eyes made your heart flutter.  These days, a fluttering heart might be cause for an emergency room visit for some.

Michael,  I must say since coming back actively to AR you bring the most change.  While previously you seemed of straight forward content.  Certainly nother wrong there, and very much a road I often prefer.  Upon my return I am sensing a change.  Light hearted, whimsical sometimes, almost childlike curiosity being spoken.  Not knowing you well enough I don't know for sure.  But something seems to have made an impression on you of late.  Almost a black and white photo being colored in.  Or we always have the other possiblility that in my time away I made the change and see differently....??  Make it a great Sunday.  Enjoyed your posts before as well as now.  Mark

On a (sort of) side note. When I first got on Facebook in 2007 it seemed that everyone talked about children, old friends, favorite sports teams, etc...The "GAB" now is often foul and divided. I find this sad. People should be able to discuss without hate.

Hi and Happy Sunday, Michael- Oh yes...I often call it jawjacking. Of course there's always small talk, prevalent at many cocktail parties and gatherings.

Sometimes nothing said speaks volumes too Michael Jacobs ! If driving today, watch out for that little old lady from Pasadena.

Hey there Michael! For a moment, I thought you were going to talk about two new social media apps. LOL

HI Michael Jacobs - Over the years I have moved away from those who like to gossip. ...even family!  If they are talking about others, they are talking about you!

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint - that's quite perceptive of you.  Throughout most of my earlier AR days,  I strayed occasionally from market reports, community spotlights and listings, but there was a shift a couple of years ago.  It was an intentional move.  


Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - I agree, it is sad in many ways but I try(don't always succeed) to see the silver lining.


Kathy Streib - thank you for the introduction of the new term - is it official or simply a Streibism???  Can I check it out in my Funk & Wagnalls?

Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 - Go!  Granny.  Go!


Rocky Dickerson -  Oops.  Purely unintentional.  


Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - it can be interesting(and a bit scary at times) how a simple conversation can veer off course. 


Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - that's another subject, that's for sure.

Michael Jacobs - There are so many types of communication. To me the ones that are most powerful and scares me the most are silence and awkward body language! I'm noticing a lot of new words with the younger crowd.

James Dray - interesting.


Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - language is always changing.  It's a part of the adaptation/adjustment process.


Roy Kelley - that sounds like a good idea.

Neighhborhood jibber jabber is what is top of mind with me today.  Spent the last day combatting incorrect neighborhood gossip that my seller was taking as gospel.  The neighbors always know everything, don't they?

Chris Ann Cleland - a walk around a neighborhood for prospective buyers can lead to many disclosures.

Michael, looking forward to a more quiet day today, has been another busy week.   No jibberjab today, hopefully.
