I covered the Bladenboro meeting last night and among those attending was a faithful guestbook contributor…Woody Fussell…Had not seen him in a long, long time…He is a huge supporter of BladenOnline..and we thank you…
The BladenOnline crew was out and about yesterday and last night..and we are hopeful of expanding our coverage of governmental meetings…How will you know, if not for BladenOnline?…If not us…who and if not now…when?  And, The Best Is Yet To Come….
Hope you are making plans to attend the festivities at White Lake this weekend…Fun for every member of the family and a huge parade is planned for Saturday…If the weather folks are right….It is going to be a nice weekend….
Do you remember the Blueberry Festival that preceded the Water Festival….back in the 70’s?
Ever stop and take a deep breath and evaluate where you are and where are you going?
Keep receiving questions about how long I plan to keep doing what I am doing with BladenOnline?  Not sure, more miles behind than ahead….Still fun…
I prefer BladenOnline to all the “honey dos”
The nice thing about retirement is I determine when I take a break and for how long…sometimes, most of the day…
Why do retirees smile all the time?  Because chances are they can’t hear a word you’re saying..
Retirement is the time in your life when time is no longer money.
How can you tell that you’re getting old?  You go to an antique auction and three people bid on you!
Age is an issue of mind over matter.  If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.
