It was a bit scary to watch the national news last night and see how many tornadoes formed over the last 24 hours across the country. I think the total number was 150. I don’t know if we are seeing more tornado activity than in the past, or we are simply getting more news of […]

Friends Helping Friends

Posted by mcm0704 on May 29, 2013 |

Please help me welcome Slim Randles, our favorite humorist, as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. I’m not sure I want Windy writing ad copy for me… “From the cow to the plow, Dewey,” Windy said, leaning on a shovel. Windy Wilson was on another of his “helper days” and today it was Dewey Decker’s turn to be […]

Today, we in the United States pause to remember those soldiers who died in service to their country. Someone recently asked me if I had ever served in the military. We were talking about the legacy of military service in our families, and she was one of those who did serve. I have not, and […]

Blog Crawl – Lucky Underwear

Posted by mcm0704 on May 26, 2013 |

We’re crawling because we can no longer walk. At least I can’t. When Cairn Rodrigues asked me to join the party tonight, I failed to tell her that one glass of wine is about all I can handle. There were days…. but then those were many days ago. Years ago when my writing partner suggested […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on May 24, 2013 |

The image of that terrorist standing on the London street and justifying his atrocious attack on the English soldier is hard to shake. I guess that was the first time I saw such hate and such mis-guided religious fervor in real life. I have purposely not watched the many videos uploaded on the Internet over […]

Monday Morning Musings – Old and Young

Posted by mcm0704 on May 20, 2013 |

Some of my writing in recent years has focused on characters who are much older than the ones I usually write about. While I was taking my morning walk today, I started wondering why that might be and I realized that it is probably because I am closer to those ages than I am to […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on May 17, 2013 |

   A student in a Dallas suburban school didn’t like the assignment he was given, so he mouthed off to the teacher, and now the teacher is on administrative leave, while school officials cleared the student of any wrong-doing. What is wrong with that picture? Apparently the video of the rant by Jeff Bliss, an […]
