This morning when Tim & I left the house, there was a cat in our street with a Dorito's bag stuck on it's head.
Now there's a sight you don't see every day! I don't know how long he (or she?) had been there, but she was motionless in the middle of the road and I'm sure we can come up with some jokes...like curiosity killed the cat or something about 8 lives left... anyways, Tim yanked the bag off and she ran off into the woods.
Now you would think that he could have gotten the bag off (Tim said he had to really yank, it was on there good) but he must have been declawed because the bag didn't even have any rips (and anyone that's ever been clawed by a cat KNOWS that bag would have been shredded) and I realized that he was out in the wild without the proper tools (claws!).
If you want to stay in real estate and come out of this funk, PLEASE make sure you've got the right tools to survive! I believe the critical tool in the next 18 months is going to be owner financing (did you know it's already increased 800% in the last 2 years!), but that's just my opinion, take it for what you will.
