Thoughts While Shaving for April 29

Spread the love

Had a message in the past couple of days from a former neighbor, one that does not like snakes … frankly, don’t know many who do like snakes … But I have evidence this one does not … can remember as a neighbor hearing her call for “ROBERT”, come quick, there’s a snake out here … I am about as afraid of snakes as she is … but, we either killed them or scared them … If they only knew how concerned we were…

Folk who live in rural areas are, for the most part, served by co-ops … Four County Electric & Star Communications in this area … Electric co-ops publish Carolina Country, about rural folks and services provided … Latest edition of Carolina Country, the EMCs publication, includes a couple of articles about Bladen County folks … One is about Michael (Mike) Davis, who lives in the Wesley’s Chapel area and collects and shares ‘turkey feathers’ with Native American tribes, including the Zuni Tribe located in New Mexico … Great article, he’s been doing it for many, many years … Usually loads up and delivers in person, but due to COVID-19, he shipped them this past October at a cost of several hundred dollars … of his own money … and he enjoys … collecting and sharing…

And, in the most recent edition is a brief article on Lu Mil Vineyard … Always good reading … Two Bladen County residents serve on the Four County board … Ronald Allen of Bladenboro and Kenneth Thornton Jr. from Kelly … And, Four County recently opened new headquarters in Bladen, on NC 242 near Bladen Gaskins Funeral Home…

I’m glad I live in rural Bladen County … for many reasons, but 2 are Four County EMC and Star Communications…

Forecast for today … Mostly sunny, with a high near 90 and windy, gusts as high as 24 mph … We need rain, best bet is a 30 to 40% chance Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday…

Think about my grandpa … Kingsberry Hester … He often prayed for rain during dry ‘spells’ years ago … and neighbors said when he prayed, better bring an umbrella…

“If the rain spoils our picnic, but saves a farmer’s crop, who are we to say it shouldn’t rain?” Tom Barrett

“Into each life some rain must fall.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain, what a wonderful feeling, I’m happy again.” Arthur Freed
