Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest, bringing us another visit down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop. The thing about good friends is, well, you can have fun with them while funnin’ with them. These friends know how to do that in spades. Grab a piece of pie to have with your drink […]

Posted by mcm0704 on November 18, 2019 |

What Do We Owe Veterans?

Posted by mcm0704 on November 11, 2019 |

#Fridayreads – Some Suggestions From Bouchercon

Posted by mcm0704 on November 8, 2019 |

One of the perks of attending Bouchercon was getting tickets to select four free books from the book bazaar. I was delighted to see books from some authors I’ve enjoyed reading in the past, especially Timothy Hallinan. We’ve been virtual friends for some time, and I’ve read and enjoyed many of his books. It’s hard […]

My First Bouchercon

Posted by mcm0704 on November 5, 2019 |

What an experience! The Sunday before Bouchercon 2019 started I could hardly walk. I had horrible muscle spasms in my back, and I was so afraid I’d have to cancel out, but a couple of days of rest and some good meds later, I was set to go. I still have the Trigeminal nerve pain […]

Friday Reads – Excerpt From A Dead Tomato Plant and a Paycheck

Posted by mcm0704 on November 1, 2019 |

Today I’m thinking about my husband and missing him. Had he lived, this would be his 82nd birthday. When I was contemplating what to write about for today’s blog, I thought of how much he liked Halloween. He loved to sit out on the porch in a  costume and make scary noises as the kids […]

Colors of Autumn

Posted by mcm0704 on October 30, 2019 |

    Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with some thoughts on colors of autumn.   I think there must be autumnal reasons for Halloween being hued in orange and black. It’s a fun time, a magic evening if you’re a kid, and if you’re a grandpa-type guy, like me, who gets to […]

Let’s Write a Story

Posted by mcm0704 on October 18, 2019 |

Okay, I don’t know about you, but I need a distraction from the horrible mess in Syria, thanks to the man who thinks pulling the troops out was a brilliant idea. Not to mention the horrible mess in Washington. So, today I decided to do something new on the blog. Actually, I thought about doing […]
