Thoughts While Shaving For May 18

Spread the love

Robert Hester, Founder of BladenOnline.comCongratulations to the winners, condolences to those who did not win … I hesitate to call anyone who seeks public office a loser … I think anyone who offers themselves for public office deserves a pat on the back … It’s what makes us different…

Check the election results on this page…

I remember filing for public office … the year was 1974, if my memory is not playing tricks, and I had the pleasure of serving as a County Commissioner for 8 years. I filed for re-election … Was offered a job that would require much travel … Accepted the position, asked that my name be removed from the ballot … and never regretted either … Many, many years ago…

I appreciate what elected officials do … and the fact that they offer themselves to serve the public … something any elected official should do … I think … never forget you promised to serve the public … period.

Now, let’s party … at the White Lake Water Festival … just days and hours away.

How about the weather? A few weeks ago needed some heat … now need some air conditioning…

61 degrees at 6 a.m. today. Weatherman says sunny, with a high near 92. Mostly clear tonight with a low near 66. Thursday, a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms before 2 a.m.. Mostly clear, with a low around 89…

Friday, sunny and hot, with a high near 100. Friday night, mostly clear with a low around 70. Sunny, Saturday, with a high near 96 … Sunday, a 60% chance of showers…

“Happiness is a glass of cold water on a hot day.”

“When the weather is hot, keep a cool mind. When the weather is cold, keep a warm heart.”

“A perfect day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing and the lawn mower is broken.”
