East Bladen host West Bladen in football this evening … final game of the season for both teams. Has not been the season either team, their coaches or fans hoped for … but youngsters still working hard. They deserve our support.
East Bladen boys’ soccer team has advanced to the 2nd round of the statewide playoffs … sporting a 16-3-1 record to date after a 3-0 win earlier this week in first round action. Next opponent is North Johnston (17-5-2) Saturday at 6 p.m.
NFL action last night … Oakland Raiders 26 – LA Chargers 24.
Rain early today, cloudy through the morning hours, then gradual clearing with a high near 52. North wind 11 to 16 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph. … Brrrr cold tonight, low around 31 with a northeast wind 7 to 9 mph. Great football weather????? Bundle up.
I enjoy cold weather now … but as a youngster using coal or wood for warming, one trash burner to keep the whole house warm … an experience I prefer to remember, but never experience again…
My mom made quilts for all 6 of her children and many grandchildren … my favorite is about a half size quilt with a place for your feet. … I spend time every morning under the quilt … thinking about her efforts, living on a very limited income, yet constantly doing good for her family. … Often, I thank her for her efforts … many years after she departed the scene. My goal should be to live my life more like my mom. … When she died we discovered many cans of Campell’s soup … some expiration dates years before. She lived through the depression and was playing it safe…
A reminder of Star Telephone’s 60th Annual meeting of member/owners Saturday, 10 a.m. at the Sampson County Agri-Center, on Warsaw Road, just off US 701 business in Clinton. All member/owners will be provided lunch. … Hope to see you there.
A friend recently shared the following thoughts …
If you’re sitting in public and a stranger takes the seat next to you, just stare straight ahead and say, “Did you bring the money?”
I had my patience tested. I’m negative.
When I say “the other day,” could be referring to any time between yesterday and 15 years ago.
