Posted by mcm0704 on December 30, 2019 |

On Friday, Slim Randles shared some of the New Year’s resolutions from the gang down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop. They were typical of the wry sense of humor most of the men have and quite fun to read. That post prompted me to think of what my resolution might be, and since I […]

Dogs And A #FridayRead

Posted by mcm0704 on January 18, 2019 |

It’s taken my dog, Dusty, a long time to feel comfortable enough in the house to play, but he finally decided the other day that it was okay to chase this toy. Some of his reticence might be due to how the cat, Sammy, terrorizes him, but some of it is due to the fact […]

Friday Fun – Book Excerpt

Posted by mcm0704 on January 11, 2019 |

There is something so interesting about an old tree with its gnarly branches and scars where branches once were. I walk by this one most mornings when I am out walking and I finally remembered to take a picture. I thought the younger tree in the background was an nice touch to the photo.  Now […]

The Fine Art of Chopping Wood

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 April 13, 2015 |

My plan was to research a woman to feature on the blog today and get a post pre-scheduled, since I was out of town all weekend. You know what too often happens to plans, and this one was blown apart cause I was sick all day Thursday, and just barely able to get packed and […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 7, 2011 |

 I haven’t shared an excerpt from my humorous memoir,  A Dead Tomato Plant and a Paycheck, in quite a while, so I thought I would do that for today. I really can’t do Monday Morning Musings because I am actually writing this on Sunday. Tomorrow I will be out of pocket all day.  Enjoy….. Nothing […]
