Thoughts While Shaving

Thoughts While ShavingBladen We Care information for 2018 will be released, possibly as early as today, related to dates and times of their annual fundraisers, Gala and Golf Tournament.

ACC will be well represented in 2018 March Madness basketball play.

Virginia seeded No. 1 and most agree, best college team this year.  Winning the NCAA tournament would be ‘icing on the cake’ for the Cavaliers.

Bladen County Commissioners meet at 6:30 p.m. today, same place and same time; Bladen County Courthouse at 6:30 p.m.  Meeting open to the public, and Bladenboro Town Council meets at 7 p.m. for regular monthly meeting, numerous issues on the agenda and the public is welcomed.

Wish I would win the lottery.  So many local people ‘hurting’ physically, financially, etc.  I have not worked out the details.  Think what could be done with $100 million….just dreamin’, smile!

Remember listening to farmers over the years, some very successful, some not so successful, sitting around a wood fired heater in any number of rural country stores throughout the county, sharing ‘tall tales’.  One I remember was, “if I had all the money in the world, would use it for farming ’til it was used up.”

The latest weekly report on BladenOnline is good, noooo, very good.
