Sad to see the First Citizens Bank in Bethlehem close. The doors were locked Wednesday.
I’ve bought a new TV. A Big 65″ model that hangs on the wall. It’s great ! However, it’s strange how they sell those things. You get a decent price but then you need a sound system and a bracket to hang the unit. I want it professionally installed so they drilled me with that too. In the end, I’m broke. Maybe I’ll start a Go Fund Me page
Quote of the Day: “There isn’t anything I wanted to do that I haven’t. At the same time, there isn’t anything I’ve ever done that I didn’t want to do better” Composer Richard Rodgers-Born this day in 1902
