Thoughts While Shaving
Thoughts While ShavingWe nearly tied our high temp yesterday for May 12.   Our 91 degree high was just one below the all time record for the date….
When you hear a radio or TV commercial and near the end a voice speaks so fast it is very difficult to understand anything being said, What do you think?…My first thought is, they must not want me to know something.  Then I begin to question what I could understand…
A reminder of the Water Festival this weekend….Click on White Lake Water Festival ad on BladenOnline and see the complete line-up of activities…..It is action packed fun…at the best resort anywhere around…Never been?  Do it this year….Come Saturday and be prepared for a huge crowd….

We have had some very good articles on our news, sports and lifestyle pages this week…Charlotte Smith and her crew bring  Bladen County news to you…at no cost.
If you are a major league baseball fan, you no doubt have heard of Yogi Berra, former New York Yankee major league catcher and later their  manager. 
Yogi celebrated his 90th birthday yesterday…Many know him by his quotes…Thought I would share a few, for old time sake….
“How can you hit and think at the same time.”
“I don’t know if they were man or woman (fans running naked across  the field).  They had bags over their heads.”
“Nobody goes  there anymore because it’s to crowded.”
“When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”
“You should always go to other people’s funeral, otherwise, they won’t come to yours.”
“You’ve go to be careful if you don’t know where you are going because you might not get there.”
“I never said most of the things I said.”
