Halloween is tomorrow.  2018 is just around the corner.

Remember when there were ‘hitching post’ in Bladen County towns, in fact, all across the USA?  For the youngsters, when you travel to town in a mule and wagon, or rode horseback, there were designated places where you could ‘hitch’ your mule or horse.  Just need a short rope to tie to the hitching post, and on Saturday, could be several animals hitched up.

Thinking back to the 50s and 60s, dad would purchase small amounts of candy..usually Kits or Mary Janes.  Seldom see them now, may not make them anymore.  As I recall, they would stick to your teeth, but sooooo good.

How about sophomore Lacey Suggs, former East Bladen star, being named co-captain of UNCW basketball team?  And, she played little or none as a freshman.  Her stock is rising, can’t wait.

Had some nice comments about BladenOnline and “Thoughts” while I was in Bladenboro, Saturday.  Some wonder about where I get my material.  A high percentage is ‘off the wall’, no rhyme or reason, just ‘Thoughts’.
