Ah, September

Posted by mcm0704 on September 7, 2016 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest, and he has a lovely essay about the first month of Autumn. I know a cowboy cringes when the word “lovely” is attributed to anything but a pretty young lady, but Slim might just forgive me this reference. The essay is so thoughtful, and, well, yes, lovely.

Putting Differences Aside

Posted by mcm0704 on July 6, 2016 |

When I posted this last Wednesday, I had no idea how fitting it would be in light of the shootings in MN, TX, and LA.  I truly wish it wasn’t. Slim Randles, my frequent Wednesday’s Guest, is a man of humor and wisdom, and today he shares a touching essay on how the Fourth of July […]

This Time Called Autumn

Posted by mcm0704 on September 23, 2015 |

Please help me welcome Slim Randles back as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. While I do love his humorous offerings, now and then he gives us something that is incredibly thoughtful and, well, pretty. Not that a cowboy ever admits to pretty, at least not out loud to his friends at the Mule Barn Truck Stop. Why […]

The Good Ol’ Summertime

Posted by mcm0704 on June 3, 2015 |

Slim Randles is back as today’s Wednesday’s Guest, and while his post is about June in New Mexico, his thoughts about the heat of summer ring true no matter where you live in the United States. Well, with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii, where summer is a bit different from here in the continental […]

Daybreak. Coffee. The Big Two.

Posted by mcm0704 on January 14, 2015 |

I’m happy to have Slim Randles here again as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. I thought this was a nice piece that invites us to stop and appreciate our days, especially those early morning hours when the world is waking up. I do love those daybreak times when I go outside and the sun is rising over […]

An Ode to Autumn

Posted by mcm0704 on November 7, 2012 |

My Wednesday Guest is Slim Randles. This time he is here with something more thoughtful than humorous, but, as always, a good read. I really like this piece as this is the way I feel about Autumn. It is my favorite time of year as it seems to beg for contemplation. Here in East Texas […]
