Thoughts While Shaving for October 18

Thursday night NFL action … KC Chiefs 30 – Denver Broncos 6.

MLB results … Houston Astros 8 – New York Yankees 3. Astros lead best-of-7 series 3 games to 1 … Winner plays Washington Nationals in the 2019 World Series.

A reminder for municipal voters … Early Voting is underway … Election is Tuesday, November 5.

The Trooper Kevin Conner Memorial Run will be held tomorrow (Saturday, October 19 in Whiteville.) The Bladenboro native was gunned down a year ago while on duty in Columbus County. Proceeds from the event will go to a scholarship fund in memory of Trooper Conner.

The annual fundraiser for Bladen Community College Foundation will be held Thursday, October 25th at Lu Mil. Sunset and Vine begins at 6 p.m. Call 910-879-5519 for reservations.

Beastfest in Bladenboro just a week away … Hope to see you there.

Remember the tune from the early 50s … Baby It’s Cold Outside? Recorded by many, including Dean Martin and a country version by Homer & Jethro.

Low this morning in the low to mid 40s. High today in the upper 60s and low tonight, low to mid 40s. Chance of precipitation in the 90% range tonight and rainfall amounts expected to be in the 1 to 2 inch category.

In the 50s, being the oldest of 6, it was my responsibility to make sure we had wood for the heater, and some splinters to light the fire. … So glad, most of us have other sources of heat today.

High school football tonight … West Columbus at West Bladen and East Bladen at St. Pauls. Gametime for both is 7:30 p.m.

It’s snugglin’ weather.

Never too cold for ice cream.

Pray for the homeless during this ‘cold snap’, … help when you can.
