Posted by mcm0704 on May 28, 2012 |

You know what they say about the best laid plans. My schedule for this week was totally fractured due to a very busy weekend. It was fun – hosting a troupe of traveling actors who brought a show to our Art Center – but it did keep me away from my computer most of the […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on May 25, 2012 |

Talk about super sensitivity. I know we do have to be respectful of other people in how we act and what we say, but this recent item made me wonder if we have gone too far.  Texas State Representative Rafael Anchia  demanded that a candidate running for the Texas congress apologize for calling a rival […]

The Family Dog

Posted by mcm0704 on May 21, 2012 |

When our kids were young we had a dog, Ruffy, who was part German Shepard and part wolf. He was a cute little fuzzy puppy who grew up into a good-sized dog, and he stayed outside. Except for the time something scared him and he crashed through the window on the French door leading into […]

Book Review – Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane

Posted by mcm0704 on May 20, 2012 |

Moonlight MileDennis Lehane2010 release First, I have to admit I am a bit biased when it comes to books by Dennis Lehane. He is one of my favorite authors, and he is one heck of a nice guy. At least he was when I met him at a writer’s conference many moons ago. This was […]

A Lesson From Cats

Posted by mcm0704 on May 18, 2012 |

When I saw these two cats sharing the same space the other day, the sight stopped me for a moment. These two female cats have hated each other ever since Daisy, the silver tabby, came to live at our house. Prior to that, Misty, the calico, was the queen. She was top cat and ruled […]

Every Day Should Be Mother’s Day

Posted by mcm0704 on May 14, 2012 |

I thought this excerpt from my humorous memoir might be fun on this the day after Mother’s Day. Yesterday mothers were treated like “Queen for a Day” and today it is back to business as usual. Enjoy…. Since we can’t have Mother’s Day every day, over the years mothers learned not to expect to much […]

Book Review – Dead For the Money by Peg Herring

Posted by mcm0704 on May 13, 2012 |

Dead For the Money Peg Herring LL Publications Had I known the concept of this Dead Detective series, I might not have agreed to read the book for possible review. When I was telling my husband what the book was about, he gave me this one-eyebrow-raised look. “A dead guy is a detective.” “Yeah.” “Okay…” […]
