Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : I love Football and...........

I love Football and...........

I love Football and...........

Football Player.........I can sit and watch it all day long.  This is a good thing ‘cause that is all that is on the one eyed monster in my living room.  Bowl Game after Bowl Game since I don't know when.  Now here it is Sunday and we have the pros on the tube playing!  Geeeeez, enuf is enuf I am hanging up my cleats and getting out of the house and getting some fresh air.  I am turning off the TV, and heading to Mid Rivers Mall after putting a pot roast in the slow cooker for dinner.  I will do some people watching, have a late breakfast or an early lunch then take in a movie with the wife.  I know I haven't seen all 35 bowl games but I think I can do without another 4th and 1.  With the time I have spent in front of the TV this weekend I could have driven to Nashville, TN. to visit Michael Thornton and while there I could'veMichael Thornton dropped in on Connie Harvey to get the real scoop on her new challenge the   31 Day Challenge for January 2011I should've thought about this before spending all this time in front of TV!  It was fun but now I have to kick my business into another gear for the new year, if you know what I mean.

Now don't get me wrong it hasn't been all football and no work I have done some work over this long weekend.  I have scheduled a day for showing property to an out of town buyer and have registered to take some classes at ActiveRain University.  After a year of being inactive in the Rain I need some time to refresh my memory on some things that Active Rain has to offer thanks to a post by Craig Daniels

CYA after the movie I just hope the people watching doesn't bear a resemblance to another football game.

Since most football games are on weekends it must be tough to schedule showings and take calls on listings and keep up with the game?

Good morning Tom,

It is a tough job when the phone rings at the start of a New Year, and interrupt doing nothing but lounging, to have to work.  But I am glad that the phone did ring.  Not much keeping up with the game when that happens.  Sorta nice having that type of a distraction.

William, William, William,

I would bet that you would be happier out on the ice fishing or out in the woods hunting for Bambi. 

:-))  Have a great day my friend.

Good afternoon Stan,

Thank you for stopping in for a brief visit and adding me as an associate.  I will be working very hard to do a post everyday this year along with you.  Here's to a GREAT 2011

Don - glad you took my up on the suggestion for ARU - I know you'll enjoy it for what you can learn to be effective in blogging. As far as small print on blogs... tech tip may help: Ctrl and Plus(+) enlarges a web page to bigger and then you can Ctrl and Minus(-) smaller or Ctrl+0 (zero) to reset to normal - maybe that helps a little. I do that once in a while too with smaller text and I have two good eyes :)

Rich,

I am normally sitting infront of the TV with the laptop on the arm of my chair.  This causes much confusion and a back ache.  I used to be able to multi-task must be getting old.

Posted by Don Rogers, Realtor, Broker, CDPE, GRI, OnullFallon MO & St Charles County MO homes (Keller Williams Realty Chesterfield) almost 8 years ago

Craig,

Thank you for the tip(s).  I look forward to ARU seeing, no pun intended, that I have been pretty much inactive for the last year and just now getting back into the saddle

Hi Don, Happy New Year. Don't beat yourself up, you did what you were ready for and now that is finshed you are ready for something else a bit more engaging. While football can be addictive, so can doing work when your mind and body wants a break. Trust me on this. There is always plenty enough time for work. It is the rest of life that often gets the short end of the time allotment.

Don, glad to see you back.  Your humor was missed!

William,

It just seem to be an endless football game all day long and it was time for me to get out of the house.  Change of scenery can do a body good.

Thanks for stopping by.
