It’s today or never for survivors of Hurricane Florence.

Winter time is coming, and it won’t be very long…Friday, December 21, 2018.  Sunrise on Friday is 7:04 a.m. and sunset is 5:34 p.m., then slowly the days begin to lengthen…

Must be Christmas time.  Neighbors dropping in for a short visit…had 2 or 3 yesterday, some bringing goodies, some bringing good cheer.  I love rural Bladen County, despite what others may say….Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do To You…..

Hope Santa brings you everything you wish for and willing to pay for….

Christmas cards should be in the mail, if they are to arrive on time.  Electronic cards are becoming more popular, but I am from the old school, love sending and receiving through US Mail.

Always good to see our national leaders working together, we hear so much negative.  Yesterday, the US Senate passed a sweeping criminal justice bill by an 87-12 vote, and recently a new farm bill passed.

2018 election is over, well should be soon, and our attention turns to 2020.  Political rhetoric will begin all over again.

You can tell Santa is a man, because no woman would ever wear the same outfit every year.

When you stop believing in Santa is when you start getting clothes for Christmas.

When Santa’s in your room, can you sense his presents?
