The Changing of the Seasons

Posted by mcm0704 on September 9, 2019 |

It’s been a crazy few days for me, so things are all out of order regarding my usual blog pattern. Slim Randles is my guest today with a thoughtful essay about September and the move from Summer to Autumn and what that means for country folks. And other folks, too.  He might be back on […]

Political Absurdity

Posted by mcm0704 on June 14, 2019 |

This crate is supposed to offer Dusty a safe place to get away from the cats. He’s outnumbered four to one, but sometimes it isn’t always the safest place. Luckily, Harry is the one cat who really seems to like Dusty, and he often tries to buddy up to the dog. Perhaps you’re already aware […]

Need Help With That Car?

Posted by mcm0704 on June 12, 2019 |

What is it they say about the best laid plans? Mine for this week didn’t include a trip to the veterinarian with one of my cats, Lily, that ate up most of Tuesday mid-day. Got home from the 11 o’clock appointment at 2:30. Oh, about those plans? On Monday, I finished up a writing spree […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on June 10, 2019 |

Before I left my daughter’s home in Missouri last week, she gave me a cutting from a plant in her yard. I don’t remember what the plant is called, but it loves sun and I put it in a place on my front porch that gets a lot of light. The smaller, darker green leaves […]

About Cats and Other Things

Posted by mcm0704 on May 31, 2019 |

That’s another picture of the stray cat that I see now and then on my morning walks. I thought that stance was particularly mighty. Last Monday night there were as many as 53 twisters that forecasters said may have touched down across eight states stretching eastward from Idaho and Colorado. Parts of Ohio near Dayton were […]

Checking the Speed Limit

Posted by mcm0704 on May 10, 2019 |

This picture of Lily that I took the other day has nothing to do with the subject of this blog post. I just thought it was a nice image to carry into the weekend. And I don’t know if she had been sleeping this way, or just slowly making her way from the top perch […]

Books And Cats

Posted by mcm0704 on May 3, 2019 |

Tomorrow, Saturday, I’ll be at the 2nd Annual Book Festival in Winnsboro, sponsored by the Winnsboro Center For the Arts. There will be 20-plus other authors in attendance, and here’s hoping the weather holds for us as this will be an outdoor event for the most part. I’m looking forward to sharing a table, and […]

Literature and History

Posted by mcm0704 on April 12, 2019 |

I’ve been taking a series of classes at Grayson Community College through their Center for Workplace Learning. The program is called T.E.A.M.S – Texoma’s Educationally Active Mature Seniors. I qualify on one count because I’m over 60, but some people might question my maturity. LOL Anyway, the first classes have been on literature, movies and […]

Is Constant Optimism Healthy?

Posted by mcm0704 on April 5, 2019 |

Wildflowers have been blooming all over East Texas, and these little white ones have been popping up since late January. Now unmowed yards are full of them, and I’m glad that some folks haven’t cranked up the old mower yet this Spring. Author Kristen Lamb writes a terrific blog, offering advice, humor, and inspiration to […]

Politics, Cats and Jokes

Posted by mcm0704 on March 8, 2019 |

On my morning walk I saw some other flowers that survived the recent cold-snap here in North Texas. I think this is an Azalea bush, but it is different from any other bushes I’ve seen. If you look closely you can see my dog, Dusty. I didn’t know he was in the picture until I […]
