Thoughts While Shaving
 
53 years ago...today...My bride and I had been married nearly one year....she had a difficult pregnancy...in and out of the hospital for 2 months or more...finally the Doc said we are going to have a baby....
 
I was in the Bladenboro unit of the National Guard and it was inspection night...and I was told to report...and I did with the promise I could leave early....and I did...
 
It was the night of the birth of our first born....Ricky James Hester made his entrance and our world changed...for the better...53 years later, a wonderful daughter in law and two children...One a graduate of NC State and now a happy Lenova employee and one a Junior at UNC with hopes of attending dental school...
 
We will have lunch in Smithfield today....with Rick.
 
We  have two sons...John and Rick and very proud of both...
 
So much for the personal note...but it was on my mind while shaving....
 
Final plans have been made for the 22nd annual Dublin Peanut Festival tomorrow, Saturday...A parade officially kicks off the festivities...Hope to see you there...
 
No football broadcast tonight...could not get a connection..East Bladen plays at East Columbus...West is open tonight...
 
East Bladen Boosters Club is sponsoring a BBQ plate sale from 4 to 6 this afternoon at E-town Presbyterian Church..Plates are $8 each...Proceeds benefit East Bladen athletics....
 
Questions regarding Janice Johnson, injured last week in a vehicle accident...Still in ICU, halo may be added today...Making progress...I am told, but will be a lengthy healing process...Prayers needed....Her church family..Wesley's Chapel UMC, is sponsoring a special offering for her Sunday...and all are invited to participate...She was in charge for years of the Open Arms program at the church....Many youth and adults benefited from her efforts....
 
The coming week, according to the weather folks, may be the perfect week...Highs in the 70 & low 80's and lows in the upper 50's and low 60's and lots of sunshine...
 
And, a big announcement about the future of BladenOnline is expected today....All is well...
 
Acquaintance: a person whom we know well enough to borrow from, but not well enough to lend to .
 
A cynic is someone who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.
 
A diet is a selection of food that makes other people lose weight.
 
Adolescence and snow are the only problems that disappear if your ignore them long enough...
