I've Been Looking For This Point. Thank You, Gabrielle Rhind!

Desert tortoise: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lenderThank you, Gabrielle Rhind!  I was looking for that comment to take me over the 600K milestone, and you provided it.  We have a great bunch of Rainers here in Tucson!

Milestones need celebrating. 

Little things keep me on track, and make up for the dry periods when I think about giving up blogging and spending the time doing something else.  It happens.

You may not have these feelings, dear AR reader, but from time to time, I want to give it all up and go do something else. 

Then I remember that consistency trumps genius, and that the Hare lost his race to the slow-but-steady Tortoise.

So I take another photo, comment on ten or twelve more posts, call two or three of you each day on the phone (that's the best!) and write another post.  This will be #938, according to the AR tracking system.

My next milestone?  It's old hat to some of you, but I'm looking forward to blog post #1,000 on the Active Rain Real Estate Network.

Hey, Mike, I just noticed you're a tad low on your called shots - only 7?  Feel free to recommend my blogs ANY time and improve that number, LOL.

Hello Mike and your post is a few days old but I would like to congratulate you on your success at the rain, and keep up the great work. I saw a traffic sign today in the middle of the desert with a HUGE Tortoise on it like the one in your photos. I wanted to get a photograph but I was driving to fast and missed my chance.
