Nicknames – Why do we Use Them?

Posted by mcm0704 on March 5, 2018 |

While feeding my cats yesterday, I realized that I was calling them by nicknames instead of their given name, and I had this moment of wondering why. What is it about nicknames? Or is there anything “about” them at all? I did a quick search on the internet and found the following on the Oxford […]

No More School Shootings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 19, 2018 |

My heart is weighed down with sadness over the horrible loss of lives in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday.  So many – too many – young people had their futures taken away in the flash of gunfire by a disturbed gunman who obtained an assault weapon much too easily. I heard on The Daily Podcast Friday […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 12, 2018 |

Starting my third week with no Internet service, thanks to Cable One who lost my initial order that was placed January 29th. The service was supposed to be installed within a few days, but that didn’t happen, so I called back the following Monday. This time I was told that they could not find a […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on February 5, 2018 |

Did you watch the Superbowl last night? I did not, as I don’t have television reception here in my new house. I don’t even have Internet service yet, so all my online business is happening with the help of the hotspot on my iPhone. My computer has built in wi-fi, so once my office was […]

More Christmas Magic

Posted by mcm0704 on December 23, 2017 |

MERRY CHRISTMAS HAPPY HOLY DAYS   Since I am Christian and most of my family and friends are, too, I thought I would lead with that holiday wish, and include the other for the people who celebrate Hanukkah, or any of the other winter solstice holidays. May we all be holy these days and into the […]

Monday Fun and a Free Book

Posted by mcm0704 on December 4, 2017 |

Thought I’d start the day with a fun meme. I love this little kitty, and she can steal my mouse any time she wants. Things are getting busier and busier for me as I get closer to my moving date, which will be sometime right after Christmas. Adding all the things that have to be […]

My Halloween Treat

Posted by mcm0704 on October 31, 2017 |

Today I can wish folks a happy Halloween for real. It is also the last day I can wear my Halloween socks, which is a good thing as I wore them all week, and they really need to go to the laundry basket. Even the dog avoids my feet. But aren’t they cute. I felt like a […]

On the Brink of War?

Posted by mcm0704 on October 13, 2017 |

Before the heart of this blog post, I’ll share a picture of one of my cats. Hermione is so hard to photograph as she always runs from the camera, I had to snap this one of her basking in the sunlight the other morning. It was a chilly morning here in East Texas, and all the […]

Saying Goodbye is Hard

Posted by mcm0704 on August 16, 2017 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a thoughtful piece about saying goodbye to things and people and pets we love. I almost didn’t post it because it made me cry when I read it. I could have used last week’s Home Country column, which was humorous, but this one fits my state […]

Monday Morning Musings

I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was very busy. First on Friday I drove to McKinney for the McKinney Book Festival. It was held on Saturday, but I wanted to go early to see some of my kids and be in town for the 8AM set up on Saturday. It was a fun […]
