Thoughts While ShavingWhite Lake Water Festival … day one … weather concerns … Day 2 a huge success … Well done, a huge crowd…

David Clark, longtime festival supporter and developer of Camp Clearwater led the parade … Congratulations to the festival committee…

Many are still at the lake today … Weather forecast is not as good as yesterday … but hopefully not a washout.

A chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 4 p.m. Mostly cloudy with a high near 79 and a 50% chance of rain … Partly cloudy tonight with a high around 57. Monday, mostly sunny with a high near 83 and windy…

Today is CHURCH DAY … All are welcome at Bladen area places of worship…

Local government officials are busy working on budgets for fiscal year 2023-2024 … Must be approved before July 1.

Construction on the bridge over Cape Fear River (US 701) appears to be going well … Lots of traffic recently…

Remember hearing older friends talk about medical issues as they aged … I have now reached that point … Latest … Cancer cells in my right arm … hopefully successfully removed … Moving at a slower pace, but still moving forward … I am among men most richly blessed…

TV sports, not bad … PGA, NASCAR, NBA, Major League Baseball and more…

Abraham Lincoln one-liners:

“Honestly, if I were two-faced., would I be showing you this one?”

“I am rather inclined to silence, and whether that be wise or not, it is at least more unusual nowadays to find a man who can hold his tongue than to find one who cannot.”

“I have now come to the conclusion never again to think of marrying and for this reason: I can never be satisfied with anyone who would be block-head enough to have me.”
