Quinte, On. real estate agent: Welcome to my Fabulously Awesome Gratuitous Post

Welcome to my Fabulously Awesome Gratuitous Post

I don't want to sit and waste half the day

poised over my laptop wondering what to say.

cracking my knuckles and stretching my joints

pondering how to get my 200 AR points.

 

So I will post this picture of a sad looking tree

so everyone can comment and compliment me

about the artistic merit of my hasty endeavour

and I can go about my day feeling rather clever.

 

Because I am a cautiously optomistic creature

I'm secretly hoping that this becomes a "feature"

and then I would really be making the most

of my fabulously awesome gratuitous post.

Thanks Susan, let's get that ball rolling.

Hi Malcolm~ For the smiles you bring and in hopes of helping boost the moral of your Charlie Brown tree, I suggest!

Here's to the eternal optimism we can possess, and diligence!

Best regards from Seattle,

Thank you Judi, we're underway now. Yes, that little tree does need a bit of a self esteem boost.

Thank you Christine, much appreciated (in a gratuitous fashion).

Malcolm - I have high hopes for the future of that tree and this post.

Malcolm, obviously you are much better at shameless self promotion than I am ;-)

So close yet so far away Malcolm LOL! Don't worry, you'll get there!

Consistency is very important in blogging. So, you did it one way or the other.

Malcolm - I'm squeezing on the "Suggest" button with both hands!  You're outrageous!  Hey, I saw your comment on Valerie's post - you've got to write a newsletter - your such a wonderful writer.  Now get busy - oh, and send me a copy when you're done!

Well, another case of asking and not receiving.  I am going to guess this tree will not be so sad as it grows.  The colors are vibrant, a sign of the youth of the tree compared with the Hurricane Irene whipped trees here in MA.

Norma, I have high hopes as well. One day it will be a towering maple.

Chris, I can be shameless at times.

Janice, maybe one day I will.

Brian, yes, except this time I did it another way.

Sally, newsletters are so much work. Groan. Do I have to do one?

Hi Larry, whatever happened to ask and ye shall recieve? It is a rather youthful tree, I suppose if Irene had made it this far north, it would have been uprooted.

Malcolm, This is funny.  Indeed there have been many recent posts about Feature Post and the feature system.  I would suggest this for the humor factor .... glad you feel better about being so clever.

Kathleen, I did write the post in response to a lot of the other posts moaning and groaning about the feature system.
