Memorial Day

Posted by mcm0704 on May 29, 2017 |

First things first: This is a day we typically celebrate with cookouts, visits to cemeteries to put flowers on the graves of our loved ones who died in battle somewhere, sometime, and build memories with family still living. Since I am far away from graves of military men in my family, I will not be […]

Not that any site is better than the other, but there is something very tragic in the loss of lives that include children. And what did the Manchester bombing accomplish for the […]

This past Saturday was the launch party for the new book, Reflections of Winnsboro, that I helped our Winnsboro historian, Bill Jones, write. We had a grand time, and it was so much fun for me to listen to Bill visit with his many long-time friends who came to help celebrate. We received lots of […]

Last weekend the “Generations” art exhibition opened at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts, and I was so thrilled to see an entire wall taken up with art from my family, starting with my mother. I posted a couple of pictures on Monday, and here is another one. The bed dolls were made by my […]

Please help me welcome Slim Randles as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a fun story about Irma the chicken. I tried to have chickens once. Even have a very fine coop in my barn with a roost and a nifty ladder up to the roost. I bought five chickens from my neighbor and thought my grasshopper […]

Going Fishing

Posted by mcm0704 on May 10, 2017 |

Please help me welcome Slim Randles as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a story about fishing and studying fish. I sure am glad he explained what an ichthyologist is so I didn’t have to pause here to look it up. Even though it only takes a moment or two to find something on the Internet, I […]
