This morning, I got a bit of a late start, then a bunch of distractions. But hey, at least it's still Sunday, and somewhere it's even Sunday morning. So here goes:

Bill Salvatore: So, where were you 54 years ago today?  OK, this one really brought back some memories for me, in my little apartment in New York City watching the landing on my little TV set. And totally awed!


Michael Jacobs: And So It Goes…  There is so much in this post that resonated with me, a reminder that it’s not really what happens in our world, it’s how we deal with it.


Lise Howe: Thinking of Downsizing - What are Your Options?  There are a lot of choices for seniors these days, and reading Lise's post is a good way to think of how to discuss it with clients.


Michael Elliott: What if We Don't Click?  This happens to all of us from time to time, and it was fun to read because it reminded me that this is an almost universal experience for Realtors.


Nina Hollander: Homoring All The Lost Socks on Lost Sock Memorial Day Nina struck a nerve with this one, reminding me that I've never met a sock that I could throw away.


Nick Vandekar: Plants don't always do what is expected While my garden skills are not strong, I do enjoy watching what my plants do as they grow (when they grow).

Jeff Masich: Real Estate FABLES Or TRUTH? YOU Decide  If you believe any of these possible truths, I have a bridge in New York City you'd really like to buy! And great "Featured Image"!

That's all for today! Hope I'll see you back here next Sunday - maybe seeing your own post on the list.  So Blog On!

Hello Patricia - thank you for including my post.  Distractions are a part of life's roadmap, aren't they?  Detours and Destinations.  Sometimes, each makes you wonder (and wander) along the way.
