Sept. 22 Bless Your Heart
Sunday, September 22, 2019
BYH, while walking to the door of Bill's Hot Dogs in Washington, a young lady got out of her can and was also going in. I told her "Good Morning" and opened the door for her. We were the only two customers in the place and I told her to go ahead because I was in no hurry. When I got my "dogs," the cashier said, "The lady paid for yours." Lifted my spirits and I will pass on the favor.
Twenty years ago, Dennis and Floyd flooded our area and killed dozens of people and thousands of animals. Bless Our Hearts for continuing to pave over more land, widen roads, and build in areas prone to flooding. Creeks and rivers do not get cleared and are full of downed trees and debris. When the floods come again, who will wonder why? We have met the enemy, and it is us, indeed!
The Tar River crested at 29.74 feet on Sept. 21, 1999, after six days after Hurricane Floyd hit.
I want to thank the sorority that made up the hygiene bags and food bags that were given out by the Greenville police at the Dream Park last Sunday. You really helped a lot of homeless people with your kindness. I am one of those homeless people. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It has touched me. Shout out to the Greenville Police Department, too.
BYH, what if no one laughs at your chemistry jokes? Keep telling them until you get a reaction.
Kiddos to Colt, Dicks, Walmart and others for listening to the public and taking positive action on gun control. Sad that they have to take the lead while the president and Mitch McConnell sit on their hands and do nothing.
BYH to those stores that continue to promote single-use plastic bags in our area. There are so many along the roadside, in the waterways, and polluting everything. Please for the sake of our children and their children, stop using these poisonous bags!
Big BYH to Third Street Academy for such a great family night. I was so impressed by the message that you are teaching these young boys to grow into proactive adults. It is quite refreshing to see the direction you are taking my grandson. Thanks Mr. Milburn and Miss Langley, your are fantastic.
BYH, Just what are "common sense" gun laws? Are they the one the criminals observe?
BYH everyone. Carl Sandburg said: "When a nation goes down, or a society perishes, one condition may always be found; they forgot where they came from. They lost sight of what had brought them along."
Why do so many people lie? The girl from cardmember services has told me several dozen times that this is the final call to notify me that I can get a lower rate on my credit card debt! She tells so many lies I am beginning to wonder if my ex-wife has finally gone to work.
