Thoughts While Shaving for October 1

Fall has arrived … I have been hummin’ a tune … “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, and it is…

Great weather, today’s forecast … Sunny, with a high near 79, calm wind and no rain. Tonight, mostly clear, with a low around 58 … More of the same for the 7 days … Sunday will be the best chance of rain, 30%…

Past 72 hours or so, rainfall totals mostly in the 1.5 to 2 inch category in our area … some more, some less. Highest gust Tuesday night (tornado warning) was in the 30 mph range at the local airport weather station.

Think the recent presidential debate changed any minds? … Don’t think so … Diehard Trump fans think Biden was rude, Biden fans think Trump was rude and I agree with both … bad examples for youngsters just becoming aware of our system of government, not likely impressed … and that’s a shame…

Have you voted? I have not, waiting for early voting, in person at sites in the area.

I highly recommend FactCheck or Snopes to see who told the most truth … Either source has the facts … and actually I favor FactCheck.

Changing topics … Remember S&H green stamps? For the younger readers, merchants gave S&H green stamps when you made a purchase … Folks would save them, fill a book and start over. Stamps were redeemed for gifts (prizes) … Pretty good idea, but it ran its course … ended in the 70s, maybe 80s.

Hope your day is good, productive…
