Thanks to a past client who has a very good sense of humor and is Answering Machinealways ready to share a good laugh.  After reading this email I have chosen to share it with the AR community.  It may not have anything to do with real estate; well, wait a minute it may.

Being a mother of 3 and a grandmother of 2, I think I may be adopting this format on my machine quite soon :)

Hi Don - I have only one grand child.  He will be 11 years old in June.  I guess my answering machine would have one response - If this is Conner calling Grandpa will be there.

Ahhhh what are grand parents for Don:) It sounds like a great message to have - pretty much sums it up!

Don, you are so blessed to have grandchildren, and aren't they GRAND!

Howdy and afternoon to you Don

Don,
each of those sure are a real hoot. I sure do think they would be a lot of fun to have on the answering machine.

Have a good one

Hey Don,

I agree and sometimes feel the same, but on the other hand it's good to live close to the grown kids.  My parents STILL live 500 miles away and I feel like we've all missed a lot over the years.  Still trying to talk them into moving to NC!
