Thoughts While Shaving64 degrees at 4:30 a.m. Patchy fog early. Mostly cloudy … High today near 79 degrees. Mostly cloudy a gentle breeze. Sunrise at 6:02 am., sunset 8:21 p.m.

Tonight, mostly cloudy skies, then partly cloudy after midnight. Low around 52 degrees.

Thursday, cloudy … high temp near 80.

Last day of the month of May … How are you doing with New Year’s Resolution? … Remember what they were? I do no make resolutions any longer…

Average high temp for June is near 88, average low around 68…

Do you remember getting out of school … ’bout this same time of year? … for some of us old codgers … many, many years ago … I much rather be in school than plowing a mule or horse (we had one of each), one row at the time … corn, beans, peanuts, cotton … and a garden … Plow it to death…

Anyone else enjoying following the career of MacKenzie Gore, left-handed pitcher for Washington Nationals … Good stats with maybe the worst team in the National League. His record is 3-3 … wins and losses. His ERA is 3.57 and has struck out 74 of the batters he has faced … He was originally signed by San Diego, traded last year to the Nationals…

The Bladen County EDC office is busy … making some big time plans for growth in the county … and it appears Chuck Heustess has the full support of the Bladen County Board of Commissioners … Good for all … Hopefully, more and better jobs for years to come…

Happy to see Congress and the President have hammered out the parameters of a new budget … Some like, some dislike … but, if Congress approves, can move on … for 2 years…

“I’m not arguing. I’m just explaining why I’m right.”

“I’m not lazy. I’m just in an energy-saving mode.

“I’m not sure if I have free time or if I’m forgetting everything.”
