We have seven women in our cast, playing the […]

It has been a busy week for me with rehearsals every night for the play that I am in. We are doing “String of Pearls” by Michele Lowe at a community theatre near by, and I have had such a great time making the story come alive with an amazing cast. We open tonight, and […]

Inauguration Day, Monkeys & More

Posted by mcm0704 on January 20, 2017 |

For the first time in as long as I can remember, I will not be watching any of the Inauguration ceremony or the celebrations. First off, because I have no local television or cable, having cancelled both several months ago. I know I could stream live coverage on my computer or tablet, but I don’t […]

Racism & Civil Rights

Posted by mcm0704 on January 16, 2017 |

When I was active in the Civil Rights Movement in the early 60s, I was so sure that by the time the year 2000 rolled around, there would be no need for activist groups to still be fighting for equality. Sigh… While things are certainly better on many levels than they were back then, we […]

Posted by mcm0704 on January 13, 2017 |

Look Out For the Bear

Posted by mcm0704 on January 10, 2017 |

This story by Slim Randles put me in mind of a deer-hunting experience that my husband and I had one Autumn early in our marriage. We were both avid archers at the time, but we only had one bow and one quiver for arrows. I don’t even remember why that was as we both eventually had bows, and […]

Friday Fun & Writing Tips

Posted by mcm0704 on January 6, 2017 |

These questions were sent to me by a friend via e-mail, and I thought they were very clever. Put me in mind of comedians George Carlin and Steven Wright, who both gave/give us things to think about with their humor. They were also favorites of mine and my husband’s, and we spent many an evening laughing, […]

A New Year

Posted by mcm0704 on January 4, 2017 |

When I read the following offering from Slim Randles to start the New Year, I had to smile. I can relate to Doc. In fact, for probably the last 10 years I have hardly ever stayed up to the midnight hour on New Year’s Eve, preferring to go to bed at my usual time, and […]
