Who First Owned Louisiana?

Posted by mcm0704 on March 22, 2019 |

This has been a busy week at my house. Lots of company has come over to all contribute to the beautification of my back and side yard. Here is a picture of what was done to the side where no grass would grow because of shade and my dog made a terrific muddy path. Thanks […]

Mush You Huskies

Posted by mcm0704 on March 1, 2019 |

Slim Randles is here today to kick the weekend off with a reminiscence of a special time in his life. I think it is good, and important, to look back on experiences that meant so much to us. In remembering, we are living it again in a sense, and that brings joy and contentment and […]

Service Dogs Never Stop Serving

Posted by mcm0704 on February 8, 2019 |

I’m going to be in Dallas today getting nerve ablations that will hopefully ease some of the pain on my face and head and get me off some of my meds. In addition to Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, I suffer from a condition known as CRS (can’t remember shit.) Many people on high doses of nerve-blockers […]

Dogs And A #FridayRead

Posted by mcm0704 on January 18, 2019 |

It’s taken my dog, Dusty, a long time to feel comfortable enough in the house to play, but he finally decided the other day that it was okay to chase this toy. Some of his reticence might be due to how the cat, Sammy, terrorizes him, but some of it is due to the fact […]

Conservation and Recycling

Posted by mcm0704 on November 2, 2018 |

  Recently, I read an interesting article in the New York Times Opinion section from Hansjörg Wyss, a Wyoming philanthropist and conservation supporter. I had never heard of Wyss before. He’s a philanthropist who was born in Switzerland where he founded the medical device company Synthes.  He now lives in Wyoming. What caught my eye about the article […]

All About Dogs

Posted by mcm0704 on October 15, 2018 |

First I want to share this picture of a flower that just opened in a small bouquet I have in my kitchen. The bouquet is from periwinkles I have planted in the front of my house, and I’ve enjoyed bringing some of the color into the kitchen, especially when the buds open to such lovely […]

All About Cats

Posted by mcm0704 on September 24, 2018 |

Over the weekend I wasted, er, spent a couple of hours on the website Answer The Public, where we can find information about any topic. You merely type in a word and a circular grid appears with all kinds of questions related to the “what, why, how, when and who” related to the topic. Warning! […]

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 […]

The Fine Art of Chopping Wood

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 […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 10, 2018 |

What a deliciously cool morning it was today when I took my dog for a walk. I even had to put on a flannel shirt for the first time since March, but I’m not complaining. I’ll take cool any day over the blistering summer heat. Every now and then I receive a newsletter from Brain […]
