Enjoy… My very first publishing […]

Friday Fun – Book Excerpt

Posted by mcm0704 on January 11, 2019 |

There is something so interesting about an old tree with its gnarly branches and scars where branches once were. I walk by this one most mornings when I am out walking and I finally remembered to take a picture. I thought the younger tree in the background was an nice touch to the photo.  Now […]
