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 […]

Mid-Week Humor

Posted by mcm0704 on May 29, 2019 |

This picture has nothing to do with the content of the blog today. I just thought it was so amusing to see Sammy in the shower yesterday. He appears to be asking if I’m coming in or not. 🙂 The cats are intrigued by this whole shower thing, sometimes actually coming in while the water […]

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 […]

Dear Census Bureau

Posted by mcm0704 on May 1, 2019 |

Since journalists, pundits, judges, and government officials are having a heavy debate about the upcoming census and what questions might be on it, I thought it appropriate to share this March 2010 letter that my friend Slim Randles sent to the census bureau back then. In terms of money being wasted and unnecessary questions, not […]

Fly Fishing And Writing

Posted by mcm0704 on April 24, 2019 |

Before moving on to Slim Randles guest post for today, I want to share this photo I took the other day. Sometimes the pictures just turn out perfect. Not because of any great expertise on my part, however. I think it’s just luck. I took several shots of this gathering of wildflowers from different angles, […]

Loving The Work

Posted by mcm0704 on April 17, 2019 |

The guys down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop think tank ponder a most important question today, “Do you like the work you do?” While posed with a hint of amusement, that really is an important question for all of us to consider. How many people are ground down in a job they hate just […]

Determination Pays Off

Posted by mcm0704 on April 10, 2019 |

Got a Horse?

Posted by mcm0704 on April 3, 2019 |

Sometimes we all yearn for a simpler life. Okay, maybe you don’t, but there are a lot of us who do, including Steve, one of the guys from the Mule Barn Truck Stop where he hangs out with Slim Randles and friends. I always enjoy spending a bit of time reading the latest from this […]

Gettin’ The Irish On

Posted by mcm0704 on March 13, 2019 |

If you’re Irish, and even if you aren’t, you can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day along with everyone else. And if you happen to be in Ireland on the day, well, the celebration can’t get any better. At least that’s what Windy, and probably a lot of other folks think.  Slim Randles is my guest today, […]

We’re All Ready For Spring

Posted by mcm0704 on March 6, 2019 |

After the last week of freezing temperatures here in Northeast Texas, we are ready for spring, as are the guys at the Mule Barn Truck Stop. There’s something about those cold winter days that make our minds go down strange paths. Dud is on a particularly strange one today, as Slim Randles shares with us […]
