Thoughts While Shaving

Time to bid farewell to 2018.  Hope it was a good year for all, always some ups and downs, hopefully more ups than downs.  Whatever, 2019 is just hours away…

One more reminder of New Years Resolutions.  Not sure that it is as big a deal as it was years ago.

Rainfall over the past 24 to 48 hours in the 1/4 to 1/2 inch range at the Curtis Brown Airport, National Weather Service reporting station in Elizabethtown, NC.

Next couple of days may not be the best for outside activities, especially on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Good chance of rain, and windy today with mild temps.  67 is expected high for today and slightly cooler tonight with lows in the low 60s. New Years day in the low to mid 70s with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms and winds gusts up to 20 mph.

Late NFL score: Colts 33 – Titans 17.  Regular season play is over, playoffs begin this weekend.

Memory test for sports fans.

Mickey Mantle’s number when he was setting records for the New York Yankees????  No. 7.

Bill Russell’s Boston Celtic number?  No. 6.

Sonny Jurgensen’s jersey number with Washington Redskins?  No. 9.
One more, the number most associated with NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt, Sr.?  No. 3.

Last test of 2018……

Be safe if you plan an outing to celebrate the New Year.  For us senior citizens, just hope to stay awake till the celebration begins on TV…We usually drop before the ‘ball’ does…

Money talks.  But all mine says is goodbye.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems.  But it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Life’s like a bird.  It’s pretty cute until it poops on your head.
