Stop printing EBT cards and illegal immigration ceases to exist. Global warming would take a hit too....

Oct. 20 Bless Your Heart

Bless our hearts, I've been hearing more sirens lately. Y’all just need to simmer down, ya hear?

BYH to anyone who thinks they shouldn't tip servers because they can’t afford to. If you can’t afford to tip, you can’t afford to eat out.

BYH to rude people. You really are not nice people, so get over it! Smile and make it a good day.

“BYH” to our decision-makers in Washington who keep making the same mistakes. When you repeat a mistake it is not a mistake any more — it is a decision.

Bless her heart, 10 years ago my grandmother started running three miles a day. Now we don't know where the heck she is.

Bless our hearts, voting districts should be blocked off in complete counties, not split up in undemocratic gerrymandering.

I sat at Red Banks and Arlington for four light cycles and I saw six cars run red lights that had been red for over three seconds. I hope the city is planning to put a red light camera there too. Maybe this will make people think twice before running the red light and possibly causing more accidents in Greenville.

No BYH, Greenville Animal Control and North Carolina Department of Agriculture. The good old boys are alive and well, killing people’s pets.

Bless you heart to the ECU football program. As a former player I understand losing. I know that it happens. But at least you could play with proper fundamentals, discipline and passion. Put in the effort and it will pay off. We won the Peach Bowl with this attitude, and it will work for you. It is time to band together and make us proud.

BYH to the ECU students who attended the fabulous concert by the ECU orchestra on Oct. 14. The two of you talked and laughed the entire concert disturbing those around you. Next time sit in the balcony so others can enjoy the concert or find other ways to turn in your pink slips indicating you attended the required concert.

Bless your heart, flag owners who do not take the time to read and follow flag etiquette. I realize folks are not at churches, schools and businesses 24-7, but four days after a lowering order, that flag should not be at half staff. You can sign up for flag alerts at  https://ncadmin.nc.gov/flag-alerts. 

Bless our hearts, these next few years will be a case study in psychodrama. You psychiatrists and psychoanalysts get your pencils out. There will be a lot of books written about this era. I’m tempted to write a book myself.

I want to thank the gentleman at Lowe’s on 10th Street who helped me load up my car with my plants and my bag and even took my cart back to the store. He was such a gentleman and so kind to help me out and I truly appreciate it. Thanks for being so thoughtful.
