Understanding #WhyIdidntreport

Posted by mcm0704 on September 27, 2018 |

First something pretty to look at. Actually, a few pretties. While I don’t see nearly as many wildflowers here in the city on my morning walk as I did out in the country. I recently came across a few. This next picture is of a flower that popped up in the middle of a small […]

You just never know what good old Windy’s going to say when the guys gather at the Mule Barn truck stop, and today’s offering from Slim Randles is a good example. The Mule Barn Truck stop is a fictional place, but it sure reminds me of the little diner my husband and I used to […]

All About Cats

Posted by mcm0704 on September 24, 2018 |

Over the weekend I wasted, er, spent a couple of hours on the website Answer The Public, where we can find information about any topic. You merely type in a word and a circular grid appears with all kinds of questions related to the “what, why, how, when and who” related to the topic. Warning! […]

A Dog’s Playground

Posted by mcm0704 on September 19, 2018 |

Before moving on to a guest post from Slim Randles, I want to share this picture of Dusty and Harry. The kennel is Dusty’s “safe place” where he is supposed to be able to get away from the cats, but Harry has other ideas. Today, Dusty had to walk over Harry to get comfortable for […]

Pinatas And Parties

Posted by mcm0704 on September 17, 2018 |

The other day my neighbors were celebrating one of their young daughter’s birthday with a small gathering of friends and a pinata. I’d seen pinatas used at various Spanish celebrations before, but I never knew exactly what they stood for, or their interesting history. Thanks to Wikipedia, I found out that the pinata originated in […]

Posted by mcm0704 on September 12, 2018 |

Please help me welcome Slim Randles as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. I’ve always wondered how a master at chopping wood managed to split a chunk of firewood with one blow of an ax; now I know. Before moving on to Slim’s post, I do want to tell you about two giveaways you can enter to win […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 10, 2018 |

What a deliciously cool morning it was today when I took my dog for a walk. I even had to put on a flannel shirt for the first time since March, but I’m not complaining. I’ll take cool any day over the blistering summer heat. Every now and then I receive a newsletter from Brain […]

All About Writing

Posted by mcm0704 on September 7, 2018 |

Playing around on Twitter today, trying to avoid jumping into any of the political fray, I found a link to a site that offers help finding topics about which to blog. Since my brain has decided to take a hiatus the past week or so – pain does that – I’ve struggled to come up […]
