Thoughts While Shaving for December 23

Hold on! Don’t obligate the proposed stimulus checks approved by Congress … President Trump says he will not sign unless the amount of each check is increased, dramatically … that after his Secretary of the Treasury indicated earlier checks would be rolling out next week … if Congress approved … They did, apparently he will not.

Back to the real world … Guess we are all following the distribution of COVID-19 medication … with great interest. Hopeful of a return to anything near normal.

Plans for the Christmas holidays still in ‘flux’ for many … and understandable…

Wish we could fast-forward a year to better understand how this situation ‘plays out.’ But, at my age, don’t need to fast forward anything…

Will be interesting to see results of December sales, locally. Sales taxes revenues represent a substantial amount of cash in local government budgets. If not sales tax, an increase likely in property taxes.

Is the professional basketball season really beginning?

See college student-athletes opting out of action … never heard of that a few years ago. Guess I understand, but seems unfair to their teammates and fans. I know … an injury could deprive them of a huge check on down the road…

Today will be a good day for shopping, weather wise. Mostly sunny, with a high near 61 and calm wind this morning. A 30% chance of showers tonight and a low near 51. Christmas Eve … Showers likely, then showers and possibly thunderstorms after noon. High near 71. Breezy, with a southeast wind 10 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 33 mph and a 100% chance of rain.

Prepare for a huge change in the weather on Christmas Day. Mostly sunny, with a high near 42, west wind 11 to 16 mph, with gust as high as 23 mph.

“Peace on earth will come to stay … when we live Christmas every day.” Helen Steiner Rice

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashion or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” Bob Hope
