Here's My Handoff Of The Friendship Ball

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty

Last week I was tossed into a ball game, The Friendship Ball Game.  In this game we are asked to celebrate two other Active Rain Members and ask them to pass the ball on to two more Members.  I have held the ball for a few days now and really feel that I need to hand it off it up to two more people so I won't get a flag on the play from the referees.

Friendship Ball


Keven O'Shea Kevin O'Shea, a fellow New York Realtor from White Plains NY handed the ball off to me.  I met Kevin as I was climbing the ladder of New York Agents rankings on Active Rain.  He was in competition with me for a while and I truly enjoyed our joisting back and forth about who was passing who.  I am working on sending him a referral as soon as my cousin's son decides to move forward with plans to buy in White Plains.    

So now I am the quarterback of the moment.  I tried to find some blooger's who have not held the ball yet and happened upon these two:

Barbara Carter Barbara Carter, another New Yorker who I have come to love through our exchanges in the Rain.  Barbara is going through some rough adjustments right now in her life but she has faith and is keeping positive in the face of some challenges that would cause many of us to fold.  Adjust and move forward Barbara and you will get to your goals.

Jessica Bigger Jessica Bigger is a new AR friend from California.  I just subscribed to her blog.  She commented on one of my posts about having a goal to meet with AR Members wherever she travels and I told her to let me know when she was coming out my way.  Lo and behold she pops up with an email stating she will be here in New York at Thanksgiving.  We hope to meet sometime that weekend.  She has a great passion for blogging and life.

So my friends you are running for the goal now.  Find two wonderful AR friends to pass the ball on to and be sure to let them know that you have given them an opportunity to celebrate two of their friends too.

Thanks Mel.  It was hard to choose just two but I think it would take forever to pass to everyone.

Paddy,  I'll have to check out the fellow New Yorkers so thank you for pointing them and Jessica out.  With so many people in the rain it's sometimes very difficult to keep up!

Morning Paddy,

Nice complementing post for all three of your freinds. I have come to know Barbara here in the Rain and miss reading her.

I haven't read Jessica, but intend to do so.

Hope you are feeling better.

Hal
