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 […]

Cats And Egos And Power Struggles

Posted by mcm0704 on February 11, 2019 |

Every late winter/early spring I used to pull the first new grass for my horse as the fresh green blades were so good for helping him to shed his winter coat. Now I pull the grass for my cats. Outdoor cats can nibble on grass whenever the urge strikes them, but since mine are indoor […]

More Cat Facts

Posted by mcm0704 on January 7, 2019 |

Those little kitties were a gift from my daughter-in-law, Wei, and I thought they might like to hang out around the barn. Now some of the cat facts, again borrowed from LitterRobot. 1. Research suggests that a cat’s purr has the power to self-heal. One of the most precious cat facts we’ve learned: The purr […]

Facts About Cats and Immigrants

Posted by mcm0704 on January 4, 2019 |

Starting off today, and the weekend, with a few interesting facts about cats. I found these on the LitterRobot site. There are thirty things listed there, but I only stole, er, borrowed a few: 1. Cats meow for their humans, not for other cats. Domesticated cats have evolved alongside humans long enough to know that […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on December 10, 2018 |

Finally, after a number of years, I’m back in the mood to decorate for Christmas, and it has been fun the past couple of weeks to pull out the decorations and remember why they are all so special. One of my favorite things to set up each year is this pair of dolls my mother […]

Another Mass Shooting

Posted by mcm0704 on November 9, 2018 |

Remember the logic tests we took in elementary school where we picked what item doesn’t belong with the others? Here’s one for you. What doesn’t belong on the shelf in my living room? My heart is heavy for the victims of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California early Thursday morning that left 13 dead, […]
