Thoughts While ShavingYesterday’s weather was about as good as you could hope for, except no rain, and we need a shower or two…

Today, patchy fog before 10 a.m. … Otherwise, partly sunny with a high near 76 … and windy … Southwest wind 5 to 10 mph increasing to 12 to 17 mph this afternoon … Winds could gust to as high as 26 mph.

Tonight, partly cloudy, with a low around 50 and windy, gusts as high as 26 mph. Friday, sunny, with a high near 64 with gusts in the 18 mph range…

If you plan to be outside, hold on to your hat … Next best chance for rain is 40% Saturday night, 90% chance Sunday and 40% Sunday night … and we really need rain…

If there is anything worse than too much rain, it’s too little…

Following a mule or horse that was hitched up to a turn plow is an experience you never forget…

Remember when cut & sew operations in Elizabethtown, Bladenboro and Clarkton provided jobs for many area ladies … A perfect example of a sweat-shop … but it was a job … Pay, not much, maybe a dollar an hour, not much more than that…

Not sure if there is more crime, or better reporting … Maybe some of both … Homemade stump-hole liquor or wine was the strong drink of the time … Now … drugs, some deadly, available, so I am told … Any wonder crime continues to increase…

Not all bad … but bad news seems to travel faster … Lest we forget … We have some great young folks, our future leaders…
