Hawaii Randy's Real Estate Opinions

I Beat Sally “WooHoo” Cheeseman to the Blog!

Patricia Kennedy and Her Good Friend DickToday Celeste WooHoo Sally Cheeseman and I had the pleasure of having lunch with Washington DC well known Realtor® and blogger Patricia Kennedy and her good friend Dick. 

We had a wonderful time hanging out at The Shack in Mililani talking stink (story) about other bloggers here on Active Rain.  It was great to finally meet her in person.

Patricia has been writing about her time in the islandDick, WooHoo Sally, HawaiiRandy, Patricia Kennedys and I am sure she will be posting about today as will WooHoo Sally.  To satisfy my competitive juices, I went back to the office and posted this before they could get a chance to get near a computer.

If you are planning a trip to the islands, be sure to give me a call or WooHoo Sally.  It is always a lot of fun to connect with our internet friends in person.
