thoughts while shavingAfter today, 11 months down in 2023, 1 month remaining…

Yesterday’s low temp at the local weather station … 26 degrees, yesterday’s high 49 degrees.

Sunny, today, with a high near 60. Mostly clear tonight, low around 39. Friday, a 30% chance of rain after 1 p.m. Mostly cloudy with a high near 68 … Rain continues in the forecast thru Monday … range is from 30% to 70% … Best chance is Saturday night and Sunday…

Had an occasion to visit the new shopping center in downtown Bladenboro recently … first class … a couple of retail merchants plan to open this weekend … Wish all success…

I am always impressed with local, talented folks who are willing and able to build ramps for those who need them … Such projects ongoing around the county, helping the less fortunate to have a better chance of a quality lifestyle … Bladen Baptist men seem to be the most active … If you, like me, have no such talent … a few bucks can make a huge difference for those who are willing and able to use their talents to help others…

Folks living past 100 years of age in the news lately … A local resident was buried this past weekend, lived to be 100 … one of the nation’s wealthiest died earlier this week … Today’s announcement that former US statesman Henry Kissinger died in the past few hours. He was 100 years old…

So, how are the Christmas shopping efforts progressing?

Local sports ongoing and John Clark covers it all … Check our Sports Page…

Thank you for checking ‘Thoughts’ daily … It’s a labor of love…
