Second Chance Saturday: Golf Hiatus 7

Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.

"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   

This series will look different until early November as I continue to golf my way around the U.S. AND meet up with many of you, my ActiveRain friends.

I have had little time to keep up on the AR blog posts. I will, however, keep posting the Zoom presentation schedule as it is updated. I'll even try to pop into the meetings when I can from the road.

I will be posting about my travels on my golf blog (as time permits) and Facebook but I know there won't be much time to spend on the platform searching out posts to Feature on Saturday. Friend request me on Facebook if you want the most comprehensive and current posts. I'll catch up on the AR blog later.

Thanks for your support of Second Chance Saturday over the last 4+ years. It will be back in its usual format sometime in November.

Hi Brian England 
I'm going to be in the Phoenix area all day this coming Friday and leaving Monday morning. I hope to see you.

Darn, I won't likely get to see you this visit unless it might be convenient enough to get together for breakfast before you headed out of town.  I have a feeling it won't be convenient though since you will be headed a direction other than where I am.

Darn, Brian England . I was looking forward to seeing you again!  Whatever you're doing that weekend I hope you have fun.
