Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 30, 2016 |

Friday’s Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 23, 2016 |

First off something to hopefully bring a chuckle: SERIOUS STUFF A Facebook friend recently cautioned me about what I post concerning political issues, as it may not help my career to get in the middle of controversial issues. That friend did so in the nicest, most well-meaning way, but I don’t agree that we should hold […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 16, 2016 |

Some of the things I like best about living in a rural setting are the beautiful scenes that are all around me early in the morning and in the evening when the sun is going down. Here in Texas we do have spectacular pink and orange and gold skies at certain times of the day. I love to take pictures, although […]

Going to The Fair

Posted by mcm0704 on September 14, 2016 |

Slim Randles is back again as today’s Wednesday’s Guest, and I really like this essay about the state fair. I have always loved to go to fairs – the rides, the livestock barns, the funnel cakes, the cotton candy, and have I mentioned the livestock barns? Not everyone likes to tramp through those hot, smelly […]

Book Review – Someone by Alice McDermott

Posted by mcm0704 on September 11, 2016 |

Before posting the review, I just want to take a moment to pause and remember that horrible day when a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda on the United States occurred on the morning of September 11, 2001.  As with all horrors that men inflict upon mankind, this one should […]
