Happy Birthday, Mom

Posted by mcm0704 on April 28, 2019 |

Had she lived, my mother would have reached the 100-year milestone today, April 28. She came close. She was just a couple weeks shy of her 95th birthday when she died, and the doctor said that was close enough to celebrate a long life. One day, a few months after she died, I was taking […]

A to Z Challenge – M is for Monarch

Posted by mcm0704 on April 14, 2012 |

For my nature theme, I thought I would focus on the Monarch butterfly today. I have always loved these butterflies, and when I was a child, our yard in Michigan teemed with them in the spring and summer. I didn’t learn about the great migration until years later and was amazed that these delicate little […]

A to Z Challenge – L is for Llama and Luck

Posted by mcm0704 on April 13, 2012 |

In keeping with my theme, I’m going to write a little about the llama. The spelling of the name has always fascinated me. How many other words start with a double letter?

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 23, 2011 |

I never thought I would find myself defending Rick Perry, but I have to agree with a recent column by Steve Chapman who said Perry’s mandate that all teen girls in Texas get the HPV vaccine was the right call. Michelle Bachmann, and others, have taken Perry to task saying that making the vaccine mandatory […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on April 15, 2011 |

 There is some talk of raising the speed limit in Texas to 85MPH. Silly me, I thought that was already the speed limit. If I’m driving 70 to 75 MPH, cars zoom by me all the time.
