Thoughts While Shaving

Thoughts While ShavingAnd, the sleet came down apparently all around the county. Hopefully, no damage.

We have had some much needed rain in our area, about .6 tenth of an inch, in one form or another over the past 48 to 72 hours. Still need more….rain.

I was with about 50 to 75 others at East Bladen, the annual Eagle dinner and reverse raffle was over, all preparing to leave and the sleet came down. Actually, many had left, you know how that goes. As some are eliminated, they leave (understandable). It was one of the largest crowds I have seen in several years at the event.

If you picked Villanova to win at any level, your chances of winning this year’s pool have dropped. The Badgers of Wisconsin beat them 65-62 yesterday. Just the 4th loss of the year for the NCAA defending champs.

UNC plays the Razorbacks of Arkansas at 6:10 PM today and Duke takes on the Gamecocks of South Carolina at 8:40 PM, both on TNT.

So, how is your schedule for the coming week?
