Thoughts While ShavingFor those, who for whatever the reason, missed the 2015 edition of the Bladen County Relay for Life event, it was a very successful event. Despite the fact that it had to be postponed due to the weather, there was a good crowd, not the largest, but a very good crowd. Last report, nearly $100,000 has been raised….not just Saturday, this committee of volunteers has worked for months….Congratulations…job well done…

And whoever came up with the purple potty with the nice floral arrangement…..a successful project….as well as many others…

Charlotte Smith and I must have read..mmmm over 800 names of folks, mostly in this county who have been or have a member of their family suffering from cancer….As I read the names, missed my friend who has assisted many times over the past years in reading the names…Lynn Shaw…but, Charlotte did a great job….

I often think about some of our neighbors and friends who say, or think, how can I be involved?…..Let the organizers of many of these type events know…attend the meetings…Most need help and welcome ‘new blood.’

As we approach June and check our Events page….not sure if I have ever seen more events in a short period of time as the coming week to 10 days…Check the page and Take your pick!!!!!

Well, the past winter at times was more winter than we thought we needed….Our spring, for the most part, has been good….but temps are rising…as they should…The hot days of summer are fast approaching….if this summer is like past summers….

Ever think about the top 5, 10 or 20 events in your life…..would, no doubt include much about family…but what else??? Try it some time…not for anyone to see or to record…Just thoughts….

Not sure about you…but I am one blessed human being…

No answer is also an answer.

No happy time is really gone, if it leaves a special memory.

No matter how long you have gone on a wrong road, turn back. (Turkish proverb)

No horse goes as fast as the money you bet on him.
