thoughts while shavingNFL Monday Night football … results … Bears 12 – Vikings 10…

Carolina Panthers owner ousted the head coach yesterday, named another new one … David Temper paid Jerry Richardson $2.2 billion for the NFL team a few years ago … Has had several coaches since his purchase … Signed QB Teddy Bridgewater to a 3-year, multi-million dollar contract (where is he?) … still 1-10 on the year, hired another head coach … Expensive toy … but if you can fill up the seats in the stadium, who cares if you win or not? Oh yes, traded away the Panthers most popular player in years, Christian McCaffery … Hopefully, he can ‘right the ship’ soon. Can’t be much fun…

So … how is your Christmas shopping going? Shopping online or local stores? Some of both? … We need local businesses … Frankly, I do very little shopping, except for food … still want to see it, touch it … compare!!!!

Anyone still sending Christmas cards via US Postal Service, online, or neither?

Wish we could wave a wand, and bring more ‘civility’ to the world we live in … Just get along … Probably should have looked that word up … Just did … “formal politeness and courtesy in behavior or speech”

Yesterday’s high temp was 60 degrees … may not get to that number today … Partly sunny today, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 52 and windy, gusts as high as 20 mph.

Tonight, cloudy with a low around 24 … Northwest wind around 5 mph, becoming calm in the evening … Sunny Wednesday with a high near 50 … It is late November…

December arrives Friday … Time to get serious about Christmas shopping and New Year’s Resolutions … Any one do that, now?

Most of us make plans for Christmas, New Year’s … Hopefully, we all pay more attention to those who ‘have not’ … Whatever we think … all are humans, some just need a break … Far too many struggling … just trying to pay the bills…
