Thoughts While Shaving for May 4

Spread the love

As I grow older, I think of moments, activities and individuals who made an impression on my life, some good, some not so good … Nope, not going to attempt to name them … Would need a case of Prevagen, the over-the-counter supplement that is now advertised that assist in making memory better. Anyone tried it? Not me…

I think of my days in the National Guard, the Bladenboro unit … Some of my most memorable times were about cleaning weapons we never shot and scrubbing pots and pans while on KP … time at Fort Stewart, Ga, operating (driving) huge tanks … Standing in the back of a duce and a half, wearing a helmet, armed with a weapon … there and back … but nothing to shoot…

On my latest trip to Bladenboro, last week, saw where the old Hinson Super Market store had been leveled … I owe a lot to JZ and Sally Hinson … for giving me an opportunity to learn about retail sales. And, I learned about cleaning onion and potato bins, and helping others mop the floors on Thursday afternoons … back when merchants closed for a half day … before the big box stores came to town that are open 7 days a week…

Sorry, just an old man, re-living younger days…

Changing the topic … thought we were going to get wet yesterday … the rain was all around, but little or none in our area … So we wait a little longer…

Forecast for today … A chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 2 p.m. Mostly sunny, with a high near 91 … windy with gusts in the 22 mph range … a 30% chance of rain … Same type forecast tonight and tomorrow … 40% chance of rain tonight, 30% tomorrow…

Yogi Berra quotes…

“You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I’m not hungry enough to eat six.”

“I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four.”

“We made too many wrong mistakes.”
