Opinion: Thoughts While Shaving

Spread the love

Thoughts While ShavingCrazy dream, dreamed I conducted a funeral, not sure who, why, where or when, last night I guess.  Figured it was time to get up, regardless of the time.

At my age, not much reason to be out and about as hot as it was yesterday, but brought back memories of cropping tobacco…hot weather, & long rows.  I worked hard/fast to get to the end of the row where I was rewarded with a cool drink of water and a few minutes on a low limb of a tree so I could feel a little breeze.

Hear folks complain about this TV station or that news person reporting something they disagree with.  Suggestion, watch the Andy Griffith Show, Sanford and Sons or some other old show.  Andy, Barney, Gomer, Goober or Aunt Bee discuss politics, but nothing that relates to the mess we have today.  Go to bed and not angry with anyone.

Former TV anchor Bob Schieffer told a great story on some show yesterday, related to Sen. John McCain.  McCain’s dad and grandfather were in the military.  Story was along the lines of….principal called McCain’s dad to report he as not applying himself and caused some confusion at school.  As Schieffer reported, his dad asked the principal if he (John) had lied or stolen anything, to which the principal replied NO.  His father said, when he does one of those two things, call me.

BladenOnline had a couple of good weeks, a little late reporting….

Thanks for your continued support.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not utter words, but to live by them.  John F. Kennedy

Don’t get me wrong, I admire elegance and have an appreciation of the finer things in life.  But to me, beauty lies in simplicity.  Mark Hyman
