Spread the love

Our high temperature for today most likely occurred at 12:15 AM … 57 degrees.

Tonight, Mostly clear, with a low around 31. North wind at 7 mph.

High yesterday (Tuesday) was 77 degrees. … Welcome to Bladen County, NC, USA. … Love it.

Filing continues for those willing to offer themselves as candidates for various offices. Steve Paterson is one of the latest to file for District 3 County Commissioner … James G. (Jimmy) Smith filed earlier for the seat. Keep hearing other names. … Filing deadline is noontime December 20..

I have high regard for most politicians, veterans and police officers. I’m too old for either, but appreciate those that do offer themselves for service. Never seen as much violence as recently … Have no answer, I am concerned … seems another shooting daily.

What’s on your bucket list? Things you would like to do or places you would like to visit? Don’t wait to long … age has a way of altering plans.

Congratulations to Nikki Fields Johnson of Raleigh, formally of Tar Heel. The West Bladen grad is the new Executive Director of the North Carolina Small Grain Growers Association.

One more time … Elf Angels assists area youngsters who may have no Christmas unless someone ‘steps up’ and offers assistance. Mail contributions to Debbie Heustess, PO Box 746, Clarkton, NC. Elf Angels serves this area, providing new toys (gifts) for local, under privileged youngsters. And, Debbie and her helpers have been doing it for years.

I don’t always go the extra mile, but when I do it’s because I missed my exit.

My mind is like my Internet Browser … 19 tabs open, 3 of them are frozen & I have no idea where the music is coming from.

Do you ever get up in the morning, look at yourself in the mirror and think … “that can’t be accurate.”
