Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 31, 2014 |

The first bit of good news is that it has warmed up just a bit and some of the places hit the hardest with winter storms this week are getting a reprieve. It’s a balmy forty degrees here, and I am so glad I did not have to haul buckets of hot water to melt […]

Daybreak. Coffee. The Big Two

Posted by mcm0704 on January 29, 2014 |

My friend, Slim Randles is back again as Wednesday’s Guest. This essay is a bit different from most of his others that are laced with lots of humor. This one is laced with a bit of homespun philosophy. I like it, and hope you do, too. Since we are not down at the Mule Barn […]

Monday Morning Musings – Too Much Money?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 27, 2014 |

A few times I’ve mentioned on my blog my dismay over the widening gap between the very, very rich and the rest of us. Some folks have wondered, by way of a comment, whether I was suffering from a bad case of sour grapes. They have pointed out that this is the way the free […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 24, 2014 |

It seems the very cold winter we’ve been having has frazzled the nerves of lots of people across the country. I snagged this quote from Becky Lewellen Povich’s blog and just had to share it. In commiserating with a friend here in Texas about our cold weather, I told her I couldn’t wait for summer, […]

Special Wednesday’s Guest

Posted by mcm0704 on January 22, 2014 |

Happy Hump Day everyone. This morning I was going to post another column from Slim Randles, but then Sam started bugging me. Sam, Samantha Rutgers, from Play it Again, Sam, had a few things on her mind, and she wouldn’t go away and leave me alone. I’m not making this up folk. Well, I guess […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on January 20, 2014 |

Today we honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Some people don’t think any more of the day other than the fact that it is a holiday and a day off work. Other people are irritated that there is yet another holiday to inconvenience them by closing banks, the postal service, and other government offices. Thank goodness, […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 17, 2014 |

A recent story in the Dallas Morning News reported that the reservoirs serving the Dallas-area are 10% lower than a year ago and the continuing drought does not indicate that it’s going to get any better. The area is more than 30 inches shy of normal rainfall over the last six years, yet nobody has […]

One Man’s Art is Another Man’s…

Posted by mcm0704 on January 15, 2014 |

Please help me welcome Slim Randles as Wednesday’s Guest this week. I laughed when I read this story from the Mule Barn truck stop. Dud’s decision to switch from writing reminded me of the college professor who suggested I take up basket weaving as a creative outlet and forget about being a writer. He was […]

Just Sharing

Posted by mcm0704 on January 14, 2014 |

If I’d planned better before leaving town last week, I could have scheduled a post to magically appear yesterday for my usual Monday Musings, but I didn’t – plan well or schedule. So I decided to just share a few pictures from the amazing wedding I attended last Saturday. My grandson, Bryan married Marion Kennedy […]
