Thoughts While Shaving For June 26

Spread the love

Good Saturday … Weekend plans??? Big weekend at White Lake, best I can tell…

Can’t believe so few Bladen County residents have been vaccinated … I do not condemn, but I plan to live as long as possible and if another shot helps, bring it on … Nearly 70% of local residents have not received … I am convinced without a shot, the chances of dying increases, and I want to live as long as possible … My research indicates 3.91 million have died worldwide, over 603,000 in US, 14,432 in North Carolina and 43 deaths in Bladen County … My numbers may be off … but … COVID-19 kills, and the vaccine is free.

Saw an article in an area newspaper about folks attempting to stop the spread of various Dollar stores … Why? small, rural, home-owned stores are few and far between. I am happy there are more Dollar General, Family Dollar, Dollar Trees. About the only competition big chains have … Remember when every neighborhood had a locally owned store that offered bread, hoop cheese, gasoline pumps, Dr. Peppers, and gossip? The Dollar stores do not provide all, but some…

Can’t believe all the ‘help wanted’ signs. Talk to the folks looking for help … it’s real … Jobs are available … Take your pick!

How about the NC State baseball team … doing great in the college finals and then … bad luck. COVID-19 decimated the team … Hopefully more players will be eligible before the tournament is over … Subs did a great job Friday in a close loss … but wins are what counts.

Hope your weekend is good. Could be a little messy today, weatherwise. A chance of showers and thunderstorms off and on, highs in the mid 80s … 60% chance of rain. Patchy fog tonight, with a low temp around 69 degrees. Sunday mostly sunny, with a high near 90 …

Remember, Sunday is church day …
