Thoughts While Shaving for December 27

Spread the love

2019 is slip-sliding away. … Check your New Year’s resolutions … no, last year’s resolutions. … How did you do?

Checked my rain gauge, a little late, measured a little over 2 inches of rainfall over the past week or so, ’bout the same at the National Weather Service station at the Curtis Brown Airport…

Weather folks predict another beautiful day in Bladen. … Mostly cloudy, today with a high near 70 degrees with light and variable wind.

Numerous football bowl games today … 2 involving NC ACC teams…
Noontime … Military Bowl … UNC (6-6) vs Temple (8-4)
3 PM … Pinstripe Bowl … Wake Forest (8-4) vs Michigan State (6-6)

Other games:
6:45 PM … Texas Bowl … Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M
8 PM … Holiday Bowl … USC vs Iowa
10:15 PM … Cheez-It Bowl … Washington State vs Air Force

Several Bowl games a day over the next week or so…

A reminder of the New Year’s Day traditional black-eyed peas noontime lunch at Bladenboro Community Building on January 1. … Proceeds will be used for upkeep of facilities…

Property taxes due in September, penalty will be added early days of January … 5th or 6th … check with the Bladen County Tax Office…

Soon be time to file income info with ‘Uncle Sam’. … Deadline is April 15…

Expect more attention on the March 3, 2020 NC primary elections … one of 14 contests scheduled on Super Tuesday, nationwide. Would be good to get through one local election without claims of illegal activities. … My suggestion, if caught, put’m in prison ’til after the next election … maybe longer … and the sooner the better … no sympathy in this corner … none…

“Kind words are the music of the world.” F.W. Faher

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly and leave the rest to God.
