#Humor From Slim Randles

Posted by mcm0704 on September 26, 2018 |

You just never know what good old Windy’s going to say when the guys gather at the Mule Barn truck stop, and today’s offering from Slim Randles is a good example. The Mule Barn Truck stop is a fictional place, but it sure reminds me of the little diner my husband and I used to […]

A Dog’s Playground

Posted by mcm0704 on September 19, 2018 |

Before moving on to a guest post from Slim Randles, I want to share this picture of Dusty and Harry. The kennel is Dusty’s “safe place” where he is supposed to be able to get away from the cats, but Harry has other ideas. Today, Dusty had to walk over Harry to get comfortable for […]

Posted by mcm0704 on September 12, 2018 |

Please help me welcome Slim Randles as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. I’ve always wondered how a master at chopping wood managed to split a chunk of firewood with one blow of an ax; now I know. Before moving on to Slim’s post, I do want to tell you about two giveaways you can enter to win […]

Of Birds And The Art of a Backhoe

Posted by mcm0704 on August 15, 2018 |

On my walk this morning I saw a bird that looked a lot like this picture of a baby Blue Heron. I don’t know for sure if that is what it was, but this is what it looked like. Of course I didn’t have my camera with me to take a picture. I was surprised […]

Think It’ll Rain?

Posted by mcm0704 on August 8, 2018 |

Slim Randles is today’s Wednesday’s Guest with an essay I can relate to today in a specific way as it is raining here, too.

Hot Enough For You?

Posted by mcm0704 on July 11, 2018 |

It’s Wednesday, so time for Slim Randles to entertain us with another story featuring the gang down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop.  It is so hot… How hot is it? Hot enough to keep the guys indoors and maybe they’re drinking iced tea instead of coffee. Help yourself to a glass and enjoy… “Hot? […]
