Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on June 3, 2016 |

Today I’m sharing some school-related absurdities. Then we’ll have some fun from the comic strips. First off, however, how about a sweet roll to go with you beverage of choice while reading. Mine will be coffee. In a letter to the editor in The Dallas Morning News some time ago, Eddie Mitchell from Waco offered an interesting […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on July 28, 2014 |

Today I thought we’d just have some fun here on the blog. I did not watch the news at all over the weekend, although I did buy a newspaper on Sunday, but I only read the comics. Usually I read the editorials as well, but never got past the funny papers yesterday. Several of the […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on June 6, 2014 |

When my sister told me she had to pay $4,000 for a pill to help her body deal with the effects of chemo she was receiving for breast cancer, I thought we had a bad phone connection. Surely it didn’t cost $4,000 for one little pill. To my dismay, I found out it really does. […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on October 4, 2013 |

Which won’t be much this morning as there is nothing in the news that I care to talk about. The mess in Washington is just that, and nothing I can say will make those folks behave. So let’s just have some fun with some comic strips and forget about the news. This first one is […]

One couple in Fort Worth, Texas are missing the home that belonged to the husband’s grandmother. It was demolished by the city when a demolition crew went to the wrong address. The house next to it was the one that was supposed to be razed after being condemned. The owners were not there at the […]

The most talked about news story this week has been about the Cleveland kidnap victims Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michele Knight who were allegedly subjected to years of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of suspect Ariel Castro. This happened in a populated area of the city, not in some remote rural area, […]

Some Friday Fun

Posted by mcm0704 on January 11, 2013 |

I’m still working on the history book and my deadline keeps getting closer and closer. Things keep interfering with my plan, like getting the flu a couple of weeks ago. Then my writing partner got sick last week and was still feeling poorly early this week. More delays. UGH! But you know what? The world […]

Just for Fun

Posted by mcm0704 on November 2, 2012 |

You know how much I enjoy reading the comic strips in the newspaper. Part of the reason is just the pure fun, but there is always a bit of truth in them, too. This one from One Big Happy resonated with me and my hubby. Ruthie is watching TV with her grandfather and he says, […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on January 16, 2012 |

Even with the convenience of getting news online or on TV 24/7, I still like to read a newspaper. Maybe I have a special affinity because of all the years I worked for newspapers. Perhaps. Anyway, one of my favorite things to do on Sundays is read The Dallas Morning News. After scanning the headlines […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

What is it with some people and their attitude toward kids? In one week’s news in Dallas there was a story about a woman who killed her boyfriend’s son by setting his bed on fire. The father woke up, but was unable to save the boy.  Another story was about a mother who bit her […]
