RED Day!: We Love Keller Williams, Columbia, SC!

On May 11, 2017 the good folks at our Market Center gathered together for Keller Williams Realty’s National RED Day. What is RED Day, you ask? “Introduced in 2009, RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate, is Keller Williams Realty’s annual day of service. Each year on the second Thursday of May, associates celebrate Mo Anderson’s birthday by spending the day away from their businesses serving worthy organizations and causes in their communities. RED Day is just another example of our commitment to each other and to the cities and towns where we live and work. Join us!”

Mo Anderson is one of the Grand-Poobah’s of Keller Williams Realty International. While her official title is Vice-Chairman of the Board, her aka is the “Velvet Hammer.” I’ve seen her in action at various events, and the name fits. She’s also the author of,  A Joy Filled Life: Lessons From A Tenant Farmer’s DaughterShe’s also hilarious. Oh yeah, and she doesn’t like cussing. :-O

I was proud of our KW office and team. The Realtors, leadership staff, and vendor partners worked hours accomplishing various projects at Epworth Children’s Home, “creating a home for our college residents to live in.”

Here is the correspondence from the Volunteer Coordinator of Epworth Children’s Home:

“Debby (Nalbone) and Laurie (Smith), 

I would like to start off by thanking each of your and your committee members who organized the Keller Williams Red Day of Service with us at Epworth Children’s Home. We are beyond amazed at your professionalism and willingness to share your time and talents in giving back to our community. 
For all of the volunteers who gave of their time and strength on the day off, God Bless you! We are so thankful to have had the project even considered but fully blessed to see the ability and ownership that each of you shared in completing the project. Thank you for creating a home for our college residents to live in. You each should be proud of your accomplishments and take pride in your service.
Thank you all for your hard work and ability to serve. We are blessed because of each of you.
Debby and Laurie- I would like to share w hand written thank you note to all those who volunteered with us on the day of service. If you have a listing of names, I can share those thank you notes asap.
Thank you both”
Wow.

 

To be clear about a sentence above, “I’m proud of our KW office and team…,” here’s what’s what. While the statement is absolutely true, I ended up being a punk. I showed up, hung around, bought a T-Shirt, and had to go deal with stuff. Does this dilute the effort of RED Day? NO! Does this dilute this post? I hope not. That said, I didn’t want my hard working office mates and/or teammates to think I’m a poser posting this on the blog. Conversely, I want to recognize in my small way the hard work of our Top-Producing office. I love KW – Columbia, Keller Williams, and what Mo Anderson helped create.

Well done, Keller Williams – Columbia, SC! I’m honored to be a part of this family and I know the college kids/residents of Epworth Children’s Home are super proud of their new home.
Thank you!!!

Couch To 5K: You Go Girls!

There has been a lot going on and I know I’m running a little behind regarding the blog lately. That said, I need to give a big SHOUT OUT to Tracy Wright, Colleen Guffee, and my wife, Jennifer Sparks Jones.

I don’t pretend to know all the details behind their training regimen, but I’m pretty sure these ladies took part in a hybrid model of the “C25K” program. If you’re not aware, C25K is the short hand version of “Couch To 5 K.”

I’ve been impressed with these three. They walked, they jogged, they ran, and all of a sudden they crossed a finish line together in the middle of Devine Street with an official running bib and time. Pretty cool!!!

According to my text messages, Michael Guffee sent me the fun pic above as somewhat of a joke at 5:13 PM on Feb 16. The girls finished the local favorite running event, Get In The Pink, May 13.

If you’re not aware, the Get In The Pink event is the brainchild of our good friend and former owner of Kick’s Exceptional Shoes, Jackie Scott Howie. It has been a fun and popular 5K and 10K run since Jackie started the event in 2009.

Fast forward to a few months ago, what started out as a funny, fleeting thought in someone’s living room turned into a real thing. Colleen, Tracy, and Jennifer stayed disciplined, held each other accountable, and damn if they didn’t finish a real 5K together. I think two of the three shocked themselves, and one was impressed with the other two. In all, this trio worked and pushed each other to a great finish.

On the day of the run, Tracy texted me (per my request) at 6:31AM, “I’m up.” I popped her back with a thumbs up emoji and the screen shot of the event “Get In The Pink” to show her that I was up and on my feet. I ran upstairs to wake Finley up to a groggy, “Daddy, what???…” My response, “C’mon babe, we gotta go see mommy run.”

We made it.

Well done Colleen, Tracy, and Jennifer! It was fun being there with (some of) the kids to watch you finish a 5K (please notice the kids running the last 30ish yards with their moms).

Love y’all!

Franklin Jones

PS: In case you’re wondering, after the race we all had a nice feast at Egg’s Up Grill, threw down a few mimosas, and found naps before we all hit the pool later that afternoon!

The Junior League of Columbia Is Amazing.

Thursday evening my wife, Jennifer, and I attended an event I’ve not missed for 15ish years. The meeting was the Junior League of Columbia’s Annual End of the Year Awards Celebration.

Once again The League put on an awesome program, of course. That said, there was a little side note going on. Here’s the scene; Jennifer and I arrived a little late for the Sponsor’s Reception.  JLC President, Jennifer Robinson, started a program which honors the “Friend of The League Award,” and the “Sustainer Lifetime Achievement Recipient.” All is awesome.

During Jennifer Robinson’s talk, a longtime friend of mine, Jane Ruschky, was standing behind my wife and me having fun and super candidly blasting in my ear (so Jennifer could hear clearly), “Dude, forget it. This is not your trophy. They are not talking about your ass. You need to know this. We love you, but c’mon….” I just keep telling her, “Buddy. I know, I know. I’m here because I want to be.” She persists, “I mean, you do know you’re not getting anything. Right?”

Jennifer Robinson took a few steps to the side and my friend and Fund Development Chair, Emily Brady Bedenbaugh, started to speak about how someone in the room had a 10+ year relationship with The League. She kept on…

Jane blows out, “Holy S*^*.. What? No. Way. They ARE talking about you?!” and doubles over laughing (hitting me with that high pony tail you see in the pic above).

Jane caught on to what was going on before I did, and when she called it, my jaw dropped. I was so taken aback that Emily had to leave her corner to bring this wonderful symbol of appreciation to our side of the room.

The pic above is a good snapshot of what was going on. Emily was so generous and elegant while I was trying to hide Jane busting a gut at herself behind us. My wife is in the blue and white dress, directly between Emily and Jane. Mandy Wren is to the left of the pic thinking, “What is so funny….?”

It was an amazing and memorable moment that ended up being funny, too. To my friend, Emily… It’s one I won’t soon forget. Thank you!!!

To the League business at hand; The Junior League of Columbia posted a massive number of $350,000 for the 2016-2017 year. This sum includes receipts from annual events such as  Holiday Market, Clean Sweep, Touch-A-Truck, and Fund Development (Direct Monetary Gifting).

I was thrilled with Jennifer Robinson posted this number on the screen. I was so proud of my local philanthropy of choice, again.

Along with Jennifer S. Jones, I had the pleasure of presenting the Kinsey Black Jones Award to the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, Year ‘Active Member’ of the League. This year’s recipient is Hilary Brannon. I got to know her husband in the back of the venue as the evening progressed. I was elated to give Hilary the award and I know the Black family would feel the same. I could tell Hilary and her friends were excited when Jennifer Robinson ‘gave it away’ in the first sentence of her introduction. It was fun to watch everyone sit up as their faces lit up in the section sitting around Hilary.

It’s getting late and I’ve typed a little long tonight, but given many readers of this blog were in the room at the time of the presentation, I thought it was a good story to tell. I will type a little later about what this gift and gesture from the League means to me and how we all got here.

At the end of the night the League’s new president, Mandy Wren, closed the meeting, which will open a new year with some thoughts and perhaps a theme. During her speech, she reminded us of quote from the late ESPN television professional, Stuart Scott. She said,”Life consists of two dates and a dash in between. Make the dash count.”

I like that.

Thank You, Becky Craven!

A few days ago, Amanda and I found ourselves at what has become a familiar event. The Kiwanis Club of Columbia once again hosted the incredibly well attended “Bill LaMotte Memorial Golf Tournament.”  The tournament benefits the Ray Tanner Foundation, and the Reese Holbrook Win Anyway Foundations, along with the Club’s youth services initiatives, respectively.

For the last four of five years our close friend and one of our favorite mortgage lending partners, Becky Craven of First Citizens Bank, invited us to join her team, along with friend and fellow Realtor, Thomas Shumpert, of Next Home Realty.

The night before the tournament, Becky and I attended a reception at the LaMotte home together. It was thoughtful, meaningful, and fun. Folks had a big time giving speeches and talking about Mr. LaMotte. I appreciate Paula Lamotte McCutchen opening her home and was humbled to be in attendance.

As for the tournament, there were tons of laughs and lost balls, but compared to our previous rounds together we actually played pretty well. That said, I’ll take this paragraph to announce how impressed I am with this event. It is awesome and it is fun. You can feel the energy from the Kiwanis Club and quite frankly, the adoration, admiration, and support of Mr. LaMotte’s family, and the pride in giving to the Ray Tanner and Holbrook Win Anyway Foundations.

Amanda, Thomas, and I are always proud to be on Becky’s team. We were especially honored this year as Becky serves as president of this well established and respected organization. I’m not a member so I may be out of line here, but I think Becky is the first female president of The Kiwanis Club of Columbia. Pretty cool!!!!!!

Becky and her husband Chase, along with my wife, Jennifer, have known each other a long time. I’m proud of and impressed with my friend.

This all said, I’d like for Columbia’s blogosphere to know that the Bill LaMotte Memorial Golf Tournament is an event to put on your calendar in 2018!

Thank you Kiwanis Club of Columbia, the LaMotte family, and our teammate… Becky Craven!

Fun “Reelin’ In The Years!”

What you’re looking at in the video above is combination of dumb@**, competitive nature, and unfortunate timing.

Here’s what’s what. My girls were invited to a birthday party by their sweet and wonderful friend, Olivia Boudreaux. Jen and I woke up Saturday morning and loaded the girls in the minivan and hauled it to a skating rink somewhere near the airport.

Noticing the rink is “just us” (translation: the Boudreaux’s rented the whole place out for the party), I immediately do the logical, once in a 30 year thing. Before Jen and the girls even got their bearings I was trading in my shoes for “12 please.” #Duh!

I went straight to the arcade area to, you know, ‘get it back.’ Translation here: practice on the carpet while no one was looking.

Confidence up, I put my glasses somewhere I’d remember and BOOM, I’m on the floor. I felt Jen, my girls, and some friends looking at me like, “WTH??”

While I won’t do this again for a few years at least, the teenager in the pic is my new skating nemesis. He’s Beau’s nephew and he pushed me to collapse a couple of times and spit gross cottonmouth into the water fountain. I’m blaming my scabbed up knee and new bruised hip on him and his yelling, “You’re cheating!” while he made his way too wide turns around the corners.

You can see him behind me in the video. He was living, and I was living & dying, simultaneously.

Please notice his inline/roller blades while I’m in the same orange wheeled stuff we laced at First Baptist Church and SkateLand in Anderson, SC. I won every lap…. (enter dab emoji here).

The worst of the whole thing is it looks like I completely took out a mom and daughter on the back stretch. What’s really going on is they fell right in front of me as I passed them.

What you don’t see is after I put my finger up as to show victory, I spun around and almost broke my a** bone in front of everyone. My nemesis took my fall and kept going for another lap, which forced me to get up quickly and womp him again.

This all said, I had a great time. I’m not sure my girls, including Jennifer, see me quite the same way but I’m good with it.

Thank you Beau, Dorothy, and Olivia!
