Mr. and Mrs. Wheezer

Posted by mcm0704 on May 30, 2018 |

Slim Randles is here to entertain us with another story about one of the guys from the Mule Barn Truck Stop gang. These people are imaginary…maybe, and we don’t know where the truck stop is located, but I imagine it could be any small rural town in any state in the country. Well, except Hawaii. […]

Some Things Can’t Wait

Posted by mcm0704 on May 22, 2018 |

Slim Randles is my guest today while I am otherwise preoccupied. I love this story about Marvin and his new fishing rod. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. It’s really starting to warm up here in Texas, so maybe it’s time for some lemonade. Help yourself. It was just one of those […]

Will Violence Ever End?

In church yesterday morning, the priest referenced a quote attributed to Chief Seattle of the Lushootseed tribe in the Pacific Northwest. “Our God is the same God. You may think now that you own Him as you wish to own our land, but you cannot. He is the God of man, and His compassion is […]

Slim Randles is here to entertain today, but before I let him take the stage, I want to explain why this post is going up so late on Wednesday. My plan was to get it ready to go live yesterday, but that plan came to a screeching halt when I had to have a root […]

Celebrating Mother’s Day

Posted by mcm0704 on May 13, 2018 |

In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I would dust off a column I wrote when my children were young and I was writing for a Dallas publication. This column, among others, is part of a book I’ve worked on off and on for a number of years – I hate to say how many […]

It’s a busy end of the week and weekend for me, so I am going to let Slim Randles entertain us with another posting from the Mule Barn Truck Stop, but first just a couple of things that are bothering me. I was listening to the confirmation hearing for Gina Haspel to head the CIA, […]
