Thoughts While Shaving

Thoughts While ShavingThe long awaited meeting of President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is over.  The two leaders signed an agreement after their summit, few details were disclosed.  Hope and pray for the best. Time will tell.

Stormy weather returned late in the day yesterday.  Rainfall ranged from very little to substantial amounts in the county, more in the Tar Heel and White Oak areas according to weather folks.  Little over an inch at the Hester household and about a quarter of an inch at the Curtis Brown Airport near Elizabethtown.

The forecast calls for more of the same thru Saturday.

Occasionally, I think of Little League baseball players from the 70s and 80s.  Wonder how they are doing as adults, some actually nearing retirement.  See some from time to time, others I never see. I still ‘fumble thru” old score books and reminiscence.
