Thoughts While Shaving for October 21

2020 World Series results … game one … Los Angeles Dodgers 8 – Tampa Bay Rays 3.

Game 2 today – 8:08 PM…

Wish I could get as excited about World Series as I did as a teenager … Just about every year … so it seemed … Brooklyn Dodgers vs New York Yankees … and I was a Yankee fan … Whitey Ford, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra … and Casey Stengel was the manager … Watched the game on a TV with … maybe a 12 inch screen, and no color … black ‘n white … at my workplace.

Voted yesterday … happy to get that behind me … actually a pleasant experience. Voted at the old Elizabethtown High School gym, a block behind Elizabethtown City Hall for those who never knew Elizabethtown High School was located where city hall is, today. There are several locations throughout the county … google Bladen County Board of Elections for more info…

About another week and a half of early voting … General Election less than 2 weeks away … November 3rd…

Youngsters must really be confused … watching political ads and so many folks lambasting their competition … Then on Sunday, we take them to church and they hear … ‘Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself’ … ‘Do unto others as we would have them do to you’ … confusing … for sure … Sad…

We make all kind of excuses for those we like and talk down those we do not care for … at election time … As my mom would say … My, My.

Remember when political signs were nailed, tacked to trees … Saw a Jesse Helms sign near the top of a huge tree in a town, county west of here several years ago … actually in the Piedmont … no chance it would be destroyed…

Weather today … Mostly cloudy with a high near 81, low tonight 63 … more of the same Thursday. Fall weather … delightful … enjoy.
