Thoughts While Shaving for June 20

Thoughts While ShavingWelcome to Summer 2016, began at 6:34 a.m. today.  This is the longest day of the year.

Thanks to all for making fathers feel special, not just on Father’s Day, but year round.

It’s Monday, time to begin a new week.  County Commissioners meet tonight.

I remember those days, but we only had 5 commissioners to deal with.  They included Vance Clark, Wilbur Register, Byron McNeill, Braxton Edge and myself.  Others I served with in my 8 years on the board included William Butler, Bobby Roberts, & Edgar Stevens.  Doug Evans was the Administrator.  (Hope I did not leave anyone out.)  The only survivors from those boards are William Butler of Bladenboro and myself.

We had our differences, as all do, but I was fortunate to learn from a great group of Bladen County public servants who worked hard to make Bladen better.

It’s the time of the year to greet our summertime residents back to White Lake.

A reminder of the Annual Meeting of the Elizabethtown-White Lake Chamber of Commerce to be held Tuesday (tomorrow) evening at Lu Mil Vineyard.

Maybe we have a tomato sandwich.  Ron Taylor is always coming up with something new.

I have the honor of spending time, from time to time, with a group of ‘ole folks’ from around the county.  We meet in the Tar Heel area, wherever and whenever Brian Singletary and Larry Sessoms decide to cook one of their delicious meals, usually under the barn shelter.  Leroy Adams is also a good cook and great host.  Old folks sharing yarns, some gossip, good fellowship and delicious food.  It is educational.

I looked up my family tree and found out I was the sap.  Rodney Dangerfield

I don’t worry about terrorism.  I was married for two years.  Sam Kinison

Honesty may be the best policy, but it’s important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.  George Carlin
