‘Baby It’s Cold Outside”, remember the tune? Perfect tune for Bladen County, early on this day … It’s been recorded numerous times over the years, the version I first remembered was Dean Martin, 1959 … 35 degrees at 4:30 a.m. today…

Appropriate lead-in to weather forecast … Sunny, with a high near 56 today. Partly cloudy, low near 42 tonight. Tuesday, a 70% chance of precipitation, with a high near 57 … Looking ahead … 31 degrees Thursday night and 32 Friday night…

It’s that time of the year … about 6 weeks til Christmas … And thinking of the Christmas season … I have 2 or 3 suggestions for a good place to support year round … Carolina Crossroads, mail check to 1086 Susie Sandhill Road, Elizabethtown, NC, 28337…

Another is Elf Angels Fund, 11649 Red Hill Road, Clarkton, NC 28433 … Miss Debbie Heustess has devoted much time for many years to help children throughout the area…

And one more…

Falcon Children’s Home, 7569 NW Street, Falcon, NC 28342. All are non-profits … Learn more about each … Google them … Just a suggestion for your consideration anytime, but especially the holiday season…

The Carolina Panthers did not lose a game yesterday … nope, they had an open date … Some really good NFL games…

One NFL game tonight … Washington Commanders (4-5) @ Philadelphia Eagles (8-0) … game time is 8:15 p.m. … Game on ESPN.

And, to all who read ‘Thoughts’ daily … Thank You … It’s a labor of love for me…
