thoughts while shavingHope your July 4th holiday was good … thousands appeared to enjoy a colorful fireworks show at White Lake last night … and thanks to local, county and state law enforcement efforts for an orderly departure following the event … for those departing the scene…

Greetings … Hope your holiday was fun wherever you observed…

For many … a long weekend to enjoy with family and friends, for others it’s back to the “grind” today.

Yesterday was a hot, hot day … highest temp recorded at the local weather station was 97 degrees … and no rain…

Overnight, the low was in the mid 70s … and still no rain … For those confused as to the day of the week … It’s Friday, July 5th…

Today’s weather … A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m. Mostly sunny with a high near 98 … Heat index values as high as 108 … Friday night … Mostly clear with a low near 78…

Saturday … A chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 3 p.m. Mostly sunny with a high near 96 … chance of rain … 50% … Same type forecast thru next Thursday…

For this set of Hesters, good to see our White Lake family … and friends … #2 son cooked, nearby folks shared homemade ice cream and we shared our front porch with long-time White Lake neighbors … Will see #1 son’s family today … hopefully including great-grands…

The Sidewalk Sale continues in E-town … today…

Saw just a little of the Gaither’s Holiday RV Show … Great talent and beautiful music…

One more thought about the lake … youngsters in their family members arms last year … running about this year, bringing joy to many…

Sad note … death and sickness never ceases … Some of our acquaintances over the years … sidelined ((hopefully for a short time due to illness).

I have been taking inventory related to our news items, features and more … Thanks for your support, and I speak for all those who have a role in BladenOnline … some old as dirt, and some new to the business … No names to protect the innocent … “Thank You” for your continued support…

Drive with care … lots of folks moving around…
