"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.

Hello Carol - we may not always be fortunate to encounter a reprise, take advantage of a do-over or experience a second chance it's good to be prepared when those opportunities present the opportunity.

Hi Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker 
I watched quite a bit of the Open this weekend. Yesterday, we recorded it and went to my friend Sandy's house and ate pizza and watched the last 3 hours.  I think we can't even imagine how difficult that course is with all its undulations and strategically placed traps.
