I was relieved to hear the hiker was found alive and well in Burke County. The man who is a native of Alexander County was lucky, a lot of times these things don’t turn out so well. I like to hike but I’m afraid nobody would come looking for me
US airstrikes killed 250 in Iraq yesterday and the President still says we’re not at war. I don’t have a problem with being at war with terrorists, why does he ? They called the military action in Korea a “police action” are we in a police action in Iraq ? I hate war but we screwed up pulling out of Iraq the way we did
Sometimes you get lucky. I finished mowing my lawn and 25 seconds after I put away the mower, it started to pour rain. We go 25 days without a drop in Bethlehem and now we’ve had it 3 days in a row.
