Thoughts While Shaving for September 4

Happy Labor Day weekend … Remember the Elizabethtown Sidewalk Sale this weekend … Bargains galore.

Temps go up, stock market goes down … Another 95 degree day yesterday … Most retired folks are very aware of stock market movement … been up for a while, but a huge ‘down’ day yesterday…

So, what are your plans for Labor Day weekend? … Many head to the beach, or lake … for many, just another work day…

Political campaigns wide-open … How long before the November election? … I said it before and I repeat … TV stations management must be all smiles … They, along with the mail service, are, or should be, bringing in the cash…

And, of course the US mail service has never had as much scrutiny … There are 7,087,350 registered voters in North Carolina, as of August 29 and as of September 2, 2020, 618,842 absentee ballots had already been requested … There are 61 days until Election Day (11-3-2020), 54 days to request your absentee ballot … and 42 days until the Early Voting period begins on October 15, 2020. All info off the NC State Board of Elections website … and … despite what you may have heard … vote once. More voting hopefully will get you in ‘hot water.’ For more info, visit the website.

Weather forecast for today … hot, hot, hot … Sunny with a high near 96. Heat values as high as 100 with west wind around 6 mph. Looking ahead to Labor Day … a great day … Partly sunny with a high near 87…
