Happy New Year

Posted by mcm0704 on December 31, 2016 |

HAPPY NEW YEAR Heading into the end of 2016, I say good riddance. It has not been my favorite year with my unwanted guest, Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, who just doesn’t seem to want to leave. My wish upon a jillion candles is to go to bed tonight and wake up in 2017 with no more neuropathy. […]

It’s a Street Party

Posted by mcm0704 on December 29, 2016 |

The week between the holidays gets a bit chaotic for many people, myself included, so I am letting Slim Randles entertain you today with an essay. Jasper and Sarah and all the people in this make-believe world do remind me a bit of folks in my small town. Somehow they are more willing to act on impulse […]

Not the same letter, of course, but his annual musing on Christmas is always spirit-filled and uplifting. This year, he shares some of his personal challenges from 2015 in the first part of the letter, which […]

Friday Funnies

Posted by mcm0704 on December 16, 2016 |

The other day I put up a little Christmas tree. The last one we had, several years before my husband died, had been attacked by the cats, and ended up out in the sun-room for them to play with for a while. For three years I never decorated. I didn’t have the heart for it, plus […]

December Dreams

Posted by mcm0704 on December 9, 2016 |

No, it is not Wednesday, but Slim Randles is here as my guest today with a lovely essay about dreams and hopes and wishes. I do hope he is not offended at me putting “lovely” in the description. Most cowboys would cringe, but I have a feeling he might be just fine with that. After […]
