Unfortunately it comes with the territory. In my years of buying and selling, I've had it happen. Many say "tomorrow" then don't show up at all. The ones that pee me off are the tire kickers that tell you they can buy it cheaper somewhere else like down south. I've been real close to throwing several people out of my coaches. It's maddening!

Here is how I handle that. They say" I can buy that down south for $50." I say "no Problem. I'll sell it to you for $50. Then you will still owe me $20 to get out of this coach with everything in place. But if you change your mind about buying, then just give me the $20 and I guarantee your safety all the way to your car, providing you can get there and get it off my site in 30 seconds or less." One look at my face convinces em I ain't kidding. Who said it don't pay to have an ugly face?
Wayne, I keep a ready for action Glock in my back pocket for the Marines in the crowd. Did I tell you my brother was a Marine? He was during the Korea thingy. He is the one that taught me to shoot.....and duck!!!!

I think fewer people are raised with good manners..... And to show courtesy and respect.
I believe that most people are basically good, but i am still rather naive on that as well.....
And find more and more that many are more bad than good.....

Sorry Dwayne

Psychology of selling 101!

The customer is always right, he's the one in charge, he has the money and all you have is something your wanting to get rid of. Since he is in control of this sell it may be the only time he is in charge of anything and wants to take advantage of it. Now what you have to decide is how long you want to let him be in charge. Very simply you can let them know that tomorrow may not be good as you have others coming by as well. ( a true fact as soon as they call and make an appointment) did I mention your always smiling while talking to them! Suggest that he call in a couple days to see if you still have it.

It's been a windy and warm day on the valley rainbow today - but it looks like winter is coming...

Yes... we have weather in the 50's today... smelled like spring this AM and the birds were talking like it was also... but I know a cold front is on it's way and those hopes will be crushed for an early spring. ( not mine... I think we need several weeks of deep, deep cold to kill the bugs that want to eat my garden...)

Looks like Bacon needs to go on my grocery list! Bacon, Bacon, Bacon!

No bacon tonight, but a cupboard crawl salad instead. Fresh green and yellow zucchinis, sliced; fresh sliced mushrooms; marinated artichoke hearts; tiny tinned shrimp; herbed oil & vinegar from the artichokes; fresh Meyer lemon juice; salt & pepper.

A million variations thereon are possible, but this one is pretty passable. One serving left -- hurry on over!😋

Serenaded my bluegrass-loving friend Bill last night after dinner with my new baritone ukelele, and he sang with me! A first. I'd never heard him sing. That was my Christmas gift to him.

My gift to his non-bluegrass-loving wife was that I stopped. 😆

Idea for future gift giving

GRANDPARENT ALERT.

So much fun, so many gestures of gratitude, and so easy to make.

This year for Christmas I put together 5 photo albums and 1 calendar. The photo albums were one for each grand child (from birth to the present) and the calendar was a family calendar with the kids as the stars of the show.

On Shutterfly, you are the architect of every step of constructing each of these items. Just download all of the pictures you might want to use in each book. Divide them into individual folders. Transfer the photos to the location you want to put them in your book. You design the front cover and the back cover. On the pages you create, you chose the background color, the number, size, and position of the pictures, the captioning, and the embellishments.

I put baby/present day picture on the cover. I put a full family picture on the back cover. I included great grand parents, grand parents, aunts and uncles, and mom and dad. Vacations, sports, baptisms, birthday parties, family meals, etc. were included. AFTER the downloading of the pictures, it took me 2 hours to finish the first one and about 45 minutes to complete each one of the others.

Parents often have all of the old pictures stuffed in a drawer. Pictures often don't travel with the kids when they leave home. I gave to the kids with the knowledge that mom and dad would look after them. Even your EX SIL/DIL would like a copy. Borrow your son's or daughter's flash card or memory card for downloading their pictures onto your computer.

It was fun and the reaction of the kids looking at THEIR book was priceless. The books were $43.00 $50.00+ each.

Fantastick......
I also have been doing this, for my art work.... Did the first one about five years ago, did soft covers, and they can work as a portfolio..... Will do grand kids when they get a few more years behind them....

I do GROOVEbook each month as a way to now keep some photos.... At $3 a month for a book of 100 photos, and that includes shipping. It is an alternative that is very reasonable. For their pumpkin patch fun day, i had a cope printed for them and for my mother, each only $3 shipped to them.... Shutterfly has bought out Groove Book recently..... Have one printed of GC@CL, and just ordered one of Texas trip, inc Rockport....

Ps Groovebook is a monthly subscription, but even if you miss a month, i dont worry. They are bound with perforations. Not best quality of paper, but grands love to pick them up and read, just like a story book.....

Oh oh oh, put us on your gift list! A little ukulele, a little singing and maybe a grass skirt, sounds like a luau, no maybe a GC, YES!
