I remember my days at Hinson’s Super Market, Bladenboro … Christmas Eve … Our shoppers were mostly farmers … Worked all day long and came to shop ’bout dark-thirty … Looking back, some of my best days … Worked with and for good folks … I was making about $1 an hour … big bucks … and thankful to have a job.
Well, Uncle Sam is going to pay out some borrowed cash … unless there is a hitch today. Folks making less than about $75,000 will receive $600, one time payment per adult in the household … (best I understand) … We borrow to pay the government and Uncle Sam borrows to pay back. Many folks are suffering and can use every dime received … no regrets from this corner … can’t come fast enough…
Did you see Jupiter and Saturn, some called the ‘Great Conjunction’, others referred to as the Star in the East?

Shop local, when possible … Remember your mail carrier, and the person who delivers the newspaper, reward him or her despite the fact that it may arrive on-time, part-time, sometime.
