Thoughts While Shaving

Municipal elections in Bladen County will be held Tuesday, November 7, 2017, less than 4 weeks away.  Make sure you are registered to vote, if in doubt call or stop by the Bladen County Board of Elections at 301 Cypress Street in Elizabethtown (behind the Post Office).  The office number is 910-862-6951.

Far to often, a very small number of voters decide municipal elections.  Every vote counts and if you reside in one of Bladen’s municipalities, you are encouraged to VOTE.  You can’t vote it you are not registered.

How about this weather?  Still feels to much like summer time.  Don’t know about you, but I am ready for an autumn type breeze.

The scattered showers are helping lawns look good.  Enjoy, in normal times, the first frost of the season usually occurs the final few days of October or first few days of November, a mere 3 weeks from now.

Many church choirs are busy, working on Christmas Cantata music.

Major league baseball playoffs are underway.  I remember as a youngster, nothing was more important.  Could quote names of players, their stats, etc., but, that was years ago.  Players included Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Gil Hodges, Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale and many more.  Yankees vs Brooklyn Dodgers was usually a good bet for the World Series.
