YouTube Thursdays - Rural Lifestyle Playdays - Meet Forrest Jump!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

YouTube Thursdays - January 20, 2022 

 

We've been preparing for an appointment to preview a riverfront property today.  Therefore video marketing for our rural homes and lifestyles niche takes a back burner this week. In the meantime, we thought it might be fun to show a bit of our "everyday"  rural lifestyle. Believe me, it's not always work around here. 

 

Forget Forrest Gump, Meet Forrest Jump

Forrest has a favorite move. We think he's always jumping for joy. He also does anything he can to lure Finnegan into play-time. Finnegan, who thinks he's the mature one at almost two,  tries to ignore him, but eventually Forrest Jump wins.  

 

 

What to do when it snows? Knit? Read? Puzzles? 

Speaking of maturity, here's how we enjoyed a snow day last month. We may be baby boomers (Don't call us seniors! ), but we don't need to travel very far to get in touch with our inner child-ren.  

 

 

Our message to you this week - "Don't forget to play!"

Forrest is so much fun. Finnegan too, but Forrest is very animated.

Norma J. Elkins it's definitely hitting hard. Many people I know have it, or are getting over it. The good news, for most, it's just like a miserable cold.

Toby Barnett No, I did not have time to do the code to get rid of suggested vids in YouTube, so I chose the easy way and did the Vimeo versions. I still use YouTube and it provides better SEO, in my opinion.

Guess I haven't worried to much about the suggested views. Still struggling to be consistent with content at this point.

Forrest turns a year at the end of next month. We keep wondering if he's going to continue to get bigger.

Puppies do bring out my inner child. We don’t know what we did before Boomer joined our family but it has been a wonderful experience. I hope you both have a wonderful weekend and a happy Friday 🙂

Hi Debb and Bernie- I could watch your videos over and over again. Forrest looks a bit like a horse prancing as in dressage.  When we moved to Leesburg, VA our home's backyard sloped down towards the woods. I'd never really experienced any snow so for our first snow, Larry bought us big saucers and I was like a little kid!!!!!
