Female Troubles

Posted by mcm0704 on November 30, 2016 |

Please help me welcome Slim Randles and the guys down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop as they ponder one of the world’s greatest mysteries. Grab a sweet roll and a cup of coffee and enjoy… The morning conference began innocently enough, with Steve and Doc arguing over which of the little packaged jellies went […]

A Deplorable Situation

Posted by mcm0704 on November 28, 2016 |

I have been dismayed at how the rights of people have been stripped away to make way for dangerous oil pipelines. The fight against those efforts have gone on for years in Texas, the Midwest, and most recently in North Dakota, where Native Americans have banded together with other supporters to protect native lands and […]

Book Review – Raylan by Elmore Leonard

Posted by mcm0704 on November 27, 2016 |

Since I have not read a book for review this week, I’m re-posting a blog piece from 2013.  I thought I would try something different this week. Thanks to a tip from Kristen Lamb, an awesome lady who gives advice to writers on her blog, I found out about a different approach to blog sharing. […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Posted by mcm0704 on November 24, 2016 |

Family. Friends. The Winnsboro Center for the Arts where I share in such a wonderful community of creative people who bring me joy. My Hacks Writer’s group that has helped me improve my craft. The vast online community of writers and artists to inspire me every day. My little piece of heaven here in East Texas, fondly […]

A Different Way to Celebrate Thanksgiving

Posted by mcm0704 on November 23, 2016 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with an essay that resonates with me since I am a horse lover. Steve, one of the regulars at the Mule Barn Truck Stop, is doing something different for Thanksgiving. Speaking of which, I always bake pumpkin pies early in the week so we can make sure they are good […]

A Heavy Heart

Posted by mcm0704 on November 22, 2016 |

We had a tragedy in our little town last night when a vibrant member of our arts community was struck by a car and killed. That happened in the midst of the last Monday Night Live event that takes place once a month with live music, food, dancing in the street, and artists of all […]

Monday Morning Surprise

Posted by mcm0704 on November 21, 2016 |

I have a surprise guest today. I know, it isn’t Wednesday, but Slim Randles is already scheduled for Wednesday, so I thought I’d introduce you to a fantastic singer.  First I have to say I had not heard of Heather Schmid until I received an e-mail from her publicity folks. I guess because I’m on […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on November 18, 2016 |

Before we get into the serious stuff, I want to share this picture a friend sent me in e-mail. There were a bunch of pictures depicting Senior Fun, and I liked this one best.   While I am still trying to get my head around the fact that we, here in the States, actually elected […]

Slim Randles is today’s Wednesday’s Guest, sharing the stage with Windy. Windy does like to talk and finds a captive audience at the Rest of Your Life retirement home. Here’s a glass of prune juice for the folks at the retirement home, unlike Minnie, who might be looking for a good excuse for a quick get-away. […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 14, 2016 |

It’s going to be a short blog today as I had a busy weekend, and I still don’t want to watch the news or even read news items online. There is so much disinformation in the media today, that I find it very disheartening. I also find some of the reactions – from both sides […]
