Thoughts While Shaving for January 14

College Football Playoff National Championship
#1 LSU (15-0) 42 – #3 Clemson (14-1) 25
Safe to say … Tigers won!

Wow, did it rain or did it rain … hard rain … just a little short of 2 inches yesterday at the Hester household (as of 5:30 PM) and about the same at the Curt Brown Airport, the official National Weather Station…

A 20% chance of rain today, increases to 40% tonight and 60% tomorrow (Wednesday). High today and tomorrow in the low to mid 70s and windy. High temp Friday in the low 50s.

Thought of folks working outside as the rain intensified yesterday … including the mail carriers. … The mail must be delivered, and it was, in our area.

Keep seeing reports of possible cuts in Social Security. … Do not like the idea, at all. … Re-do, if necessary, but there are many other options…

According to, the average annual benefit in North Carolina is $17,550. 1,476,848 retirees in the state in 2018, an average of $1,462.49 per month. Americans are living longer. In 1940, a 65 year old was expected to live almost 14 years. Today, life expectancy is more than 20 years…..Up the maximum level of contribution … cut foreign aid. … Take care of the working folks first. … Anyone in Washington that thinks Social Security needs to be cut, has been there too long.

In South Carolina, the average annual income from Social Security is $17,712, in Virginia $18,084. New Jersey is at the top with $19,402 … all based on salary over the years. … For many senior citizens, it’s their primary source of income.

Stock market is doing well, thank you. Talk of some relief on the tariff situation with China is welcome news…

Saw this recently and liked it…

Things God won’t ask:

He won’t ask what kind of car you drove. … He’ll ask how many people you drove who didn’t have transportation…

He won’t ask about the clothes you had in your closet, he’ll ask how many you helped to clothe.

He won’t ask the square footage of your home, he’ll ask how many people you welcomed to your house.

He won’t ask what your highest salary was, he’ll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.
