High School and college seniors are being ‘treated’ , as they should be in. … Traditional graduation ceremonies are ‘out’ in most areas … being replaced with drive-up, walk-up ceremonies … and other creative ways of special recognition. The graduates deserve special attention. … Love the huge pics of the class of 2020 at homes and churches in the area…
Do you remember your graduation? I do … sort of … about 60 of us at Bladenboro High School, 1956. Some excited, heading off to the beach after the ceremony, or some other special site … for others of us, back on the job the next morning, sporting a diploma … Still very proud of it. … Later graduated from business school in Charlotte, Carolina School of Broadcasting … but not sure there was any recognition … mailed the diploma, I think … after they made sure the tuition was paid…
Congratulations to the class of 2020.
NASCAR is wide open … seems a race a day. … Last night it was truck racing … Top 5 finishers included…

Has violence ‘picked up’ or is it my imagination?
The important thing to remember is not to forget.
How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to start a campfire?
Doing nothing is hard, you never know when you’re done.
