Sweet Lemon-Aid - A MeMe turned ThemThem

Real Estate Agent

This meme is really a 'THEM THEM' about some special people in the RAIN and what they mean to me.  Reflecting on this past year - I've realized what an incredible impact the people of Active Rain have made on my life.........And Thanks to Charles - Alan - and Susan.....for having me on their lists......:-)) and so now I get to come up with a list of my own!... 

I know this particular Me/Them?list has something to do with Lemon Trees, Lemons, Lemonade.???.....but to tell you the truth I'm not exactly sure why.........But what I do know is that THESE people (and many more) helped turn my Lemons into Lemonade!   Charles said....."  I MAKE UP THE RULES.  So in that spirit, if you see your name on this list I trust that you can make up your own rules as well"........Idecided to serve up TWO batches of Lemonade....(perhaps Mulled Wine or Hot Buttered Rum might have been more appropriate buttttt...


 First of all a big thank you to...

Alan May -  Lemon tree, very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet... 

 Who hasn't read Alan by now? He's fantabulous!  And don't you love his new pic.....a wee bit more current then that Elvis dude wouldn't you say? :-)



 Inspector: Charles Buell, Seattle, WA, Home Inspector (Charles Buell Inspections.com)

Charles Buell - Even the Edsel was a Lemon!Oh Charles! Does this man no how to spin a tale......with feather pen in hand a twist of his moustache (in a previous life) he'll take you on a delicious ride - every time! 

     Susan MangigianI'd like to take this time to thank.... Alisha and Carol!  Oh Mama Mia!  Dry wit, mixed with smarts......is there a better combination?

And then for the Sweetest of Lemons!.....

Hmmmmmmm. My wise old grandmother taught me that if life gives me a lemon, make some lemonade. I don't know whether Liz considers me the lemon or the lemonade. I like to think that I'm kind of sweet since the only sour I like is a whiskey sour -- LOL.

Thanks for the recognition, Liz. I'll be back in a few days to check in on some of your other blogs. Right now, gotta go, gotta go.

Liz - sorry for the delay in getting here - I did as I said I would in my blog - took some much needed time off to spend with my family for the holidays and loved every minute of it.  I have been a long time fan of yours - your style, your words and messages - they provide me with such great ways to think about things, approach situations and so much more.  You truly are a blessing to me and I look forward to continuing to know you more and talking with you one of these days.  You have certainly provided me with many sweets in the time I've known you. Thank you for the honor in this post - I always appreciate your support, encouragement and friendship.  ~Anne Marie
