3 Days, 3 Quotes- Day 2


When I was much younger I had a bit of a yen for Kerouac, and the lifestyle.  Even today, ‘On the Road’ resonates, for a lady with a restless streak.


Another day dawns

Another adventure begins, in a place that I love.

I hope that it may long continue.

The Happy Traveler kindly nominated me for the 3 Days, 3 Quotes challenge.  I have one more quote to come tomorrow.  If any of you would like to join in with some quotes of your own, please do feel free.  Meantime, have a happy Friday!


      1. I know what you mean, Jo. The weather here is going to be warm today, but it’s cloudy and dreary. I had pretty much made up my mind to NOT sell real estate. Now I got roped into going to a team meeting at the broker’s office who is trying to recruit me. It’s funny how the things I really want, like traveling and getting my book published, really elude me, while the things I don’t want, like selling real estate, are panting at my doorstep!! Why does life work that way?

        Sometimes memories are much more fun than our current to-do lists! xxx


      2. I don’t know about that, Jo! But thanks for the vote of confidence. I’m not a salesperson at heart; generating leads would be very difficult and uncomfortable for me. That’s why I’m resisting at every point. I haven’t committed yet, and am on the verge of turning them down. It is quite an investment up front, and I don’t want to invest in it if my heart isn’t in it.


      3. You have to pay them money? Shock, horror! 😦 I thought you just had to pop out and smile at your clients. Obviously got it wrong. Quelle surprise!


      4. Yes, sadly. If it weren’t for that, I might give it a try. I already spent $379 for the course, and $60 to take the licensing test, and then it’s at least another $1,000 to get in plus ongoing expenses. No one gives you any money for anything until you sell a house! It’s all about lead generation. I made 25 cold calls a day when I was a stockbroker in the late 80s and I hated every minute of it!!


      5. That’s what I think!! Why did I even bother taking that course?? It was a lot of work, all for nothing. And now I have to waste more time today just because I didn’t want to say no, or didn’t have the courage to do it. You know these salesmen types, they try to make it all sound so appealing and irresistible, but I know what it’s like because I’ve done sales before. Have a great day, Jo, and hope you get lots done on your to-do list. 🙂


    1. I’m clutching my coffee cup because the heating is just coming on, half watching a much cooler English sunrise, Pauline. They are a joy, aren’t they, wherever you are. 🙂


      1. We’re looking forward to cooler days, have had enough of summer and the long, hot nights. Glad you like my photo, the locals must have thought us crazy, we stood out in that snow taking photos and posing for photos for ages 🙂


      2. Hot nights are hard to take, Sam. I hate air con but I guess I’d have to learn to love it in Australia. More likely those nice ceiling fans. Take good care! 🙂


  1. “… and don’t be sorry.” I like that.
