Tomorrow we call for the mail. We will also visit with friends while there. Probably have breakfast with our former pastor & his wife Juanita.
It is sort of a let down here in Florida, these towns around here; Mt. Dora, Eustis, Tavares, Leesburg really go all out with outside decorations. They are absolutely awesome. Now they are off. Do all cities go out more for decorations than in years past? I can remember in years past the main decorations were trees in folks windows and lights strung overhead on Main Street down town. That was a big deal!
I love the Christmas season and do hate to see it pass, but then you know it really won’t be long until Spring. Spring when life seems to begin anew and hopes soar.
I know it is getting close to the inauguration. In a few days another man will feel the weight of the world on his shoulders. That must be a frightful realization, but it is a position men/women fight to achieve. Lord help this administration to hold the proper course of the ship of state. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if by some stroke of genius we could reclaim the jobs that have left he country. It would be great to hear of steel mills cranking up again and cotton mills going back on line.
Mentioning cotton/textile mills, Belmont is losing the last of its many cotton mills. The National Mill closes its doors soon. Belmont once teemed with Textile Mills and villages, now is a bedroom town for Charlotte. No longer can folks complain about the ‘low paying’ mills, because now they are ‘no-paying’ mills.
Hope you have a great week and thanks for coming this way.
