The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (A/R) - Oh My!

By
Real Estate Agent

I was just thinking today how A/R is a little like the Land of Oz.  Ok...so what I had in mind was a little bit of a modern day take -

Well here I was a wandering, a wandering I was... one day.............I'd been perfectly (well ok...not perfectly but almost..........) happy working at Mom& Pop Realty in Kansas City (aka Chilliwack).......when one day......the storms of inner turmoil started twirling..........

*

At first it was just a bit of dust in the eye you know?  But soon a storm of discontent began to brew.......

I started thinking to myself........I wondered actually if there was a place I could go..........like the Land Of Oz..........

 t

A place that could provide me with a few missing pieces.......

Actually ...hmm I did remember getting an invitiation...to some place out on the West Coast, some place were it Actively Rained........and the soil was ripe with cybermation.  

Apparently there were people in that land that had this idea....... 

...that if they tilled the soil and planted seeds of interconnectedness, gave it a healthy dose of Realtyinfo 'Rain'.........something Magical might transpire!

So the word went out through Munchkinland..........(aka Realtorland)

 And....the community rapidly grew...............oh!

 

 OH MY what a brood there grew  There were Brainiacs.........Ya I know...Who'd have Thunk?     

A little more Rain fell......and some shy munchkins developed courage............and started to share.......

                                    

 Golden raindrops fell..........rusty hearts melted........and started to teach  and share about with generosity and and inspiration'........

 

 

And with time we realized that the A/R God's were only human...

 

That some munchkins were dressed in disguise...

But fortunately we had Group Founders and Moderators..Who knew exactly what to do...

So that everything was fair....and we could keep our home a Healthy Happy and Active Rainland! :-)

Liz, that first photo of Dorothy is pretty hot! very different from that 3rd photo:-)

I think that 1st pic depicts AR pretty acurately. a hot chic and some shady looking characters lurking around in the dark:-) I can't decide which one is me.
