Saturday Surprise

Posted by mcm0704 on November 29, 2014 |

I just received the following announcement from my friend, Slim Randles, and just had to share it. Since we have all enjoyed his humor and his wisdom, I thought we could raise a glass in salute. “Home Country” columnist Slim Randles won three regional book awards for the two books he wrote in 2014. “Max […]

Once upon a time, many years ago, there was a pleasant thing that some people liked to do the day after Thanksgiving – go to the mall and do a bit of shopping, look at all the holiday displays, and listen to the Christmas Carols being piped over the sound system.   Image Courtesy of […]

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. I loved cooking the big dinner, with prep starting days in advance. We had to make the pies at least two days early so we had plenty of time to test them and make sure they were good enough for the big day. Too bad if […]

No Black Friday Shopping for Doc

Posted by mcm0704 on November 26, 2014 |

The day before Thanksgiving I thought Slim Randles would have a heart-tugging thoughtful piece about all the ways he is thankful, but he surprised me. Not that this isn’t a thoughtful piece. Doc makes a lot of sense if you stop and think about it. So help me welcome Slim as my Wednesday’s Guest today, […]

Aw Shucks, Old Age

Posted by mcm0704 on November 24, 2014 |

It’s going to be a busy week heading toward Thanksgiving and I have a jillion things to do today, so I thought I would have a guest instead of my usual Mondy offering. I am so thankful for the writers who share their work with us, and one of them, Roy Faubion, occasionally sends me […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on November 21, 2014 |

There was an interesting article in last Sunday’s Dallas Morning News written originally in the Princeton Alumni magazine by Lawrence Otis Graham, an attorney and author. His article, Wealth can’t protect your kids from racism, had some interesting things to say about the problem. What prompted the article was in incident involving his 15-year-old son […]

Legendary Thanksgiving Dinner

Posted by mcm0704 on November 19, 2014 |

Please welcome Slim Randles as today’s Wednesday’s guest. He has a cute story that tells us how not to plan a Thanksgiving dinner. Since it is never too soon to have some pumpkin pie – and mine are the best, just ask any of my kids –  we can all have a slice to go […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 17, 2014 |

I’m reading Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline, and it is a wonderful story. Vivian, now 81 years old, was an orphan in the late 20s and early 30s and part of the story is set back then, chronicling her experiences after she is taken by Child Services from New York to Minnesota to find […]
