Thoughts While Shaving

Thoughts While ShavingTime to return to a normal schedule, Labor Day is over…school buses on the road….as well as youngsters along the roadway.

Fall officially arrives in about 3 weeks on September 23rd.

The General Election is 9 weeks from today.  Expect a full ‘court press’, especially at the state and national level.

Anyone excited about the upgrade to gmail?
