Thoughts While Shaving For August 6

Spread the love

Robert Hester, Founder of BladenOnline.comHave you driven thru a new vehicle lot recently? A few new pickup trucks and a few SUVs … but few if any new autos … A fair number of used trucks and SUVs … No new vehicle dealerships in Bladen County…

If you have a 401k at work, or a little extra cash, you are aware the stock market is doing a little better…

Walked outside recently and greeted by a wasp … I came out in second place…

I have been following the progress of the lottery … listening for the winner of the recent billion dollar pot of gold … Winner is from Illinois … The big winner appears to be ‘Uncle Sam” … Winner, if & when someone steps forward with the winning number … He or she or they will receive less than half of the announced amount. Don’t think that’s right … but who wouldn’t settle for the top prize.

Stumbling thru the internet and discovered the N.C. State Fair will be offering a blue ribbon for several new contests … This year’s competition will include seashell painted rocks and artwork inspired floral arrangements … Deadline for these and many other entries is September 15. FYI…

So what’s planned for this weekend? No grass cutting here … Took care of that chore yesterday … Maybe a visit to the lake…

Weather forecast for the weekend … A 30% chance of rain … Otherwise, mostly sunny, with a high near 93, heat index values as high as 100 degrees. Tonight, mostly clear, low around 72 and tomorrow, (Church Day) a 40% chance of rain after 11 a.m. Mostly sunny, with a high near 91, heat index value as high as 101 … Enjoy.

“Remember when it took three minutes or more for the TV to warm up?”

“Remember when you’d reach into a messy gutter for a penny … made with real copper? Then, looking to see if it was a 1943 lead penny?

“Remember when you got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time. And you didn’t pay for air? And you got trading stamps to boot?”
