It’s Never Met To Be Complicated?

Hold the press!

Consider slowing down and really being aware of your surroundings. I am just sharing what the heck happened when I was lead to believe our V.F.W Post. Hosting a "Game Night" right?

The setup was tell me, Brotherbill to reach out to the thousands of loyal contacts for over 33 years. No matter where they live. Have them consider donations of any amount sent to Post or show up for "Game Night". Hold on, I am getting to the crazy part. 

Well, I did put it out there and thank God, it was a rainy muggy. Yes, in February Boston, MA was muggy? Only a handful of people including myself, showed up. Now, I have no idea how many donated even a buck. Yet, I laugh so hard when the our Bar manager Dan. Explained the confusion was last minute event planning?

They only game was one I did not like to participate, Beer Pong. Remember, in college when you wanted to drink for free. Just show up at any house party on campus. You drink free with playing "Beer Pong". That was such a mislead and I understand the disadvantage of not having a committee establish events vs our supportive young adults from Darts & Pool teams of ours. Experience matters and knowing the environment counts.

Well, only two people out of thousands showed up. I know it was due to weather and serous virus has been going around in Boston. Making children and grown folk sick as anything. The only reason God speard me was I shut myself in my house for those two weeks. I did not know it was a serious virus going around? I was clueless and the radio station I get my daily weather did not mention when I was listening for my daily dose of radio cleaning and cooking.

That blessing of being retired prior to 33 years old. Helping people from my home office. Not watching regular TV with commercials and crazy gloomy news. Pays off big time. That is on discipline I am so grateful for.

Lesson Learned:  Research people, places and announcements prior to jumping in to volunteer or get involved. No matter titles, time on earth. You may want to develop research skills or reach out to someone who has experience in that area of knowledge.

Consider writing something about my blog when you visit. I am all about meeting new contacts and sharing our passions which drives us. When, I visit someone's site/page/blog. I make it a point to read one article and engage with relevant feedback. Keep it real and transparent. We do not just add a presentations of a site that has stuff to market?
