Thoughts While Shaving for September 8

Political campaigns have been ongoing for weeks, months. Long before TV and other forms of communications, you would see a few political signs along the roadway and could catch up on all the news at country stores all across the county. Ex., Uncle Fred Hester store, across the road from Zion Hill Baptist Church north of Bladenboro. Today, it is non stop, TV ads, direct mail, circulars courtesy of the postal service … and there are others on social media. And more to come…

Farmers are busy gathering corn and other crops … all using big pieces of equipment. Remember when corn, peanuts and cotton were gathered by hand, and delivered to the pack house or to market with a mule and wagon … maybe an old pick up truck and a home built trailer…

I really enjoyed the FedEx golf championship that ended Monday. The 30 survivors of the PGA playoff system, playing for $45 million. Dustin Johnson lead from early on in the four-day tournament and held on to capture the $15 million top prize … For the record, second place paid $5 million, 3rd place was worth $4m, 4th place, $3m and 5th place a measly $2.5 million. 30th place was worth $395,000. Great finale for the ’20 PGA season. A new season begins next week…

Feel like I wasted my life in the cornfield, tobacco patch, pickin’ cotton by hand, stacking peanut, cleaning out onion bins in a supermarket or spreading material and cutting out dresses that retailed for $3.98 and $4.98, or years spinning records at WBLA … but not complaining…

The weather was ideal for a Labor Day weekend at White Lake…

Still a couple of weeks before Autumn, but a few leaves are beginning to fall…

Autumn … pumpkin time, been waiting all year long…

A fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer waving goodbye.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
