Missed Opportunity

Posted by mcm0704 on November 28, 2008 |

I fully intended to write a blog yesterday to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, but got sidetracked with a killer headache. What a way to start the day. I managed to get the turkey stuffed and in the roaster, then told my husband I was going to lie down for a while before our company […]

There’s nobody in here but us chickens…

Posted by mcm0704 on November 23, 2008 |

Here is another guest blog from Tracy Farr who has a particularly warped sense of humor. Thought you all would appreciate a bit of levity. As most of you may know, I’m a quiet, unassuming kind of guy who is basically shy, never wants to stand out from the crowd, never speaks out on “the […]

A Successful Book Fair

Posted by mcm0704 on November 20, 2008 |

Had a great time talking to high school students in Mineola – a small town in East Texas – on Tuesday for the Mineola Book Fair. The students were a respectful and attentive audience, and it is always so much fun to go to the schools and meet creative young people. In the morning, I […]

Since I have been so busy this week I thought I would have a guest bring you a bit of humor. Here is another offering from Tracy Farr, a very funny man who also plays a mean banjo. A rose by any other name… I don’t know how you feel about the matter, but it […]

Monday Morning Blues

Posted by mcm0704 on November 10, 2008 |

It’s been a busy few days since I posted last, which kept me pretty much offline, especially over the weekend. Our son came to visit for a few days, and we always enjoy working outdoors while he is here. Like me, he is a frustrated farmer, so he likes to do chores. The first day, […]

Letter to Our New President

Posted by mcm0704 on November 5, 2008 |

It’s official, we now have a new president and we are in for an interesting four years. I’ll admit I was a Barack supporter, and I am pleased that he won. This morning, I received a message from Barack that was addressed to me personally. As I stated in my response to him, part of […]

Your Chuckle For The Day

Posted by mcm0704 on November 2, 2008 |

I laughed so hard after reading this Mallard Fillmore cartoon this morning, I choked on my coffee. Funny stuff: “With only two days left in the campaign, the latest polling data show that 92 percent of registered voters now say they’ll scream if they hear any more polling data… “…while 84 percent say pollsters should […]

Blaming Barack

Posted by mcm0704 on November 1, 2008 |

In a recent editorial letter, a man in Texas wrote that Barack Obama’s candidacy for president has contributed mightily to the Wall Street meltdown. He further writes that the market is listening to both candidates and is frightened by the prospect of an Obama victory. A vote for Mr. McCain is a vote on behalf […]
