Usually It's Us That Makes It Rain.

If it's going to rain cats and dogs let's hope both are small. Not the size of my Baby.

In Philemon's case he had nothing to do with it raining cats and dogs but when it's you and me we usual contribute to it if not outright cause it.

Of course raining cats and dogs can be a WONDERFUL thing. Such as when our marketing efforts makes it rain cats and dogs in results. Results that make us money!

Then there are those times when it's NOT so wonderful. In example I could/should have waited for my slow business time before moving my office. I barely, and I truly mean barely, kept my head above water with a ton of business and the move.

It's not always our fault when we have a hard time keeping up but... a little planning may have/could keep us from those sink or swim moments.

Thank you once again to Timmothy Timm's cartoon Titus and Philemon for inspiring me to write this post.

I am still unpacking but for now everything is functional Will Hamm . Just little things for now like "am I out of legal size paper or is it in one of those 20 boxes yet?".

It would indeed Kat Palmiotti but with the shelters already being full it would be best if it doesn't 🙂

Thanks Hannah Williams it has been working out very good and I think it will continue to. I am actually getting caught up but I think it will be another week yet before I get all my paper organized.

Someday, we will likely find Timmothy's cartoons syndicated in a major newspaper publication.

Bob I am of the belief that it is never a good time to move and ironically, I moved more times than I care to admit... then to boot my job as a Realtor is to move people:))Endre

Hi Bob,
I'm convinced no matter how much you plan, moving is always inconvenient in one way or another, and sometimes in many ways. Once we get settled, though, it's always worth it.

I believe so Myrl Jeffcoat 😃. The art I post here is from his earliest sketch books and they do not compare to what he is doing today.

Endre Barath, Jr. I am of the opinion that every Realtor should move (home or office) every ten years just to keep in touch with what our clients go through. It would also let us know if we really are recommending the best professionals to help make the move or not.

That has certainly been the case for me Carol Williams . I just realized that I have no legal sized paper, thought I had a case packed up, that mistake cost me nearly double the price I normally pay for it (per ream). However, that being said, I am finding things I thought I needed to buy and now I don't. Most important of all is I LOVE my new work environment.

We expect to have some very rainy weather in our area on Friday as the storms from the hurricane head north.

Some of the Veterans Day activities will be impacted.
