Thoughts While Shaving for August 12

Ever asked if you are a Republican or Democrat? One of my Sunday School classmates shared recently that when he was asked that question, his reply was I am a Methodist. … I hope and pray I live long enough to see our nation more united than is currently the situation. Guess the last time we felt like ‘one nation under God’ was following the 9/11 attacks … a long time ago.

Touchy subject, one I refuse comment on. … I tend to read and listen to opposing views and not as sure as most that my info is correct, so ‘no comment’. And, kind of a stubborn ‘old jackleg’, do not always follow the crowd. Never met anyone I agreed with all the time.

Our average high temp for August is 87. High today near 88, windy with gusts up to 16 mph. Chance of rain increases during mid week to the 40% to 70% range.

A reminder that you can pay your property taxes prior to August 31, and save a ‘whopping’ 1%. That’s the best offer.
