"You Have Mail" Active Rain Friends are Amazing

jeff

 

When I was reading a post by Jeff Dowler  wrote about cookies it was for the contest that Debbie Reynolds asked us to write  what we are thankful for . I told Jeff I would be watching the mail for my cookies .

 

I had a very busy week last week with closing and if you read my Q&A question had a problem getting a condo questionnaire filled out it was just two simple yes or no questions but it was finally done . It just stressed me out as I like to know all is well .

 

Yesterday I dropped all the files off and picked up another when I looked in my Mail bin and noticed " I had mail "  I saw the return address I knew immediately who it was from and waited until I got home to open .Cleo insisted to see the contents .

 

Yes it was delicious cookies Thank you Jeff I am eating them as I am watching the snow fall .

cookies

 

I also have received two calls of friendship this week . One from  Lynn B. Friedman  and the other from Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland 

 

I do think Active Rain is a truly wonderful place . I will never leave . Last but not least at 3pm EST  I have to speak with a perspective seller who called me from my blog on Active Rain .

 

Happy Holidays  to all My Friends at Active Rain 

We are not Perfect but Who is ?

Hannah,

How nice of Jeff Dowler to do that.  This is a special group, indeed!  Speaking of cookies, we were just a Von's (a supermarket) picking up cat food and organic apples, and at the check out, we could buy one Pepperidge Farm cookie package that would be donated to our wonderful firefighters.  We bought two!  It was so nice to be able to have a way to give, easily.  A

Hannah Williams Loved talking with you today and hearing about the cookies and Jeff Dowler's family tradition. AR is so much more than buying and selling houses.

And...my Phoebe could be related to Cloe. She is where ever I am...right now on the heated floor next to my desk.

What a sweet thing for Jeff Dowler to do! Just when you needed a pick-me-up, there was a special shipment of sweetness. I happen to think the AR group is pretty sweet, too.

Dorie Dillard  It is a wonderful place and isn't it amazing how we care about each other . Jeff Dowler  is so sweet and so were the cookies  ..

Very well said Nina Hollander . Too be honest I have learned so much from him . He is a GURU of sorts

Andrew Mooers  You are amazing in your own right . Always telling us the importance of video and well you should because you are right .  The kitty is my Cleo who is sleeping by my side .

Thank you all for joining in the conversation

I received cookies this week too. Mine were from Hawaii, from Kimo Stowell . The difference is that mine were expected and not a surpise, my reward for winning his Halloween contest.

How sweet of Jeff to do that. Those kind of surprises are the best!
