Im getting a few emails…Okay more than a few asking what I am doing and all that so I figured I would catch you guys up…First I am enjoying retirement but I have to admit it does get a little boring and living on a fixed income takes some getting used to. All in all I am happy and enjoying life but I still keep up with the industry and theres an awful lot lately that has gotten my attention, it pulls me to write about it so I think Im gonna start writing a bit more often, Y’all know me it’ll be original, Im noy big on cutting and pasting and I damn sure dont do press releases LOL but I do have to give credit to the new owners…there is diversity here that I was never able to get and thats a good thing…Its always been OK to disagree with me and sometimes Im even wrong but getting back on topic quite a bit has happened in my life, the biggest being I adopted a daughter. I’ve known her almost all her life (she is 16 now) and when her mom was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis she asked me if I would be her father and of course I said yes, she is a good kid and she fills a void in my .life for sure…I love kids but never had any…The next biggest thing was I got a dog. Since I don’t travel anymore and have the time to spend I figured it made sense, I had dogs as a kid and have always loved them.
I went to the pound because to me that just seems the right thing to do, It was sad to see all the pit bulls that were there because they were abandoned because they werent mean enough to fight, I cant believe people do that but they do, the county I live in has hundreds at any given time, most will never get homes. I got a little mutt…mostly Terrier, she weighs 22 lbs is one year old and she has really changed my life, she has the best disposition of any dog I have ever owned, she is obedient and eager to play and learn. It’s amazing how fast they grow on you, I can’t imagine not having her around now and its only been 6 months. My newly adopted daughter named her Lola the name fits and Lola loves going to the beach with me.
Anway that catches you all up and clears the way for me to start writing about the things Im seeing in the biz….stay tuned and drop me a line at mikesouthxxx at gmail dot com and tell me what you would like to hear about, or what question you would like answered or if you have a good story I wanna hear it. I intend to stay away from things like guys pretending to be agents and what not because the site is doing a good job on that front now, I want to go with more op/ed type stuff. Stay tuned!
