Happy Fourth – My Birthday

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2019 |

I could hardly let the Fourth of July pass without a mention on the blog today. After all, it’s my birthday, as well as that of the good ol’ U.S. of A. In years past on this date, I’ve shared an excerpt from my humorous memoir, A Dead Tomato Plant and A Paycheck about my […]

Happy Birthday, Mom

Posted by mcm0704 on April 28, 2019 |

Had she lived, my mother would have reached the 100-year milestone today, April 28. She came close. She was just a couple weeks shy of her 95th birthday when she died, and the doctor said that was close enough to celebrate a long life. One day, a few months after she died, I was taking […]

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 […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on April 8, 2019 |

On my morning walk, I saw this little blue flower peeking out from a tangle of brush in an empty lot. Getting a good shot was a bit of a challenge as it was fairly deep in the tangle, but I managed and was pleased with the result. As a professional photographer once told me, […]

Posted by mcm0704 on March 29, 2019 |

It was five years ago yesterday that my mother, Evelyn, died, and it will be four years ago in June that I started writing the book that has become, Evelyn Evolving. It took almost three years of writing and rewriting to get the story right, then another year for the book to find a publisher. […]

Bill Jones and I will sign copies of our books, Images of America and Reflections of Winnsboro, and then I will have my own books available for purchase and autographs. And now another […]

Friday Reads – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on June 16, 2017 |

Between preparing for the summer drama camps at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts and extra time spent with the new dog, Hannah, I have not had much down time. Which is probably a good thing in a way, as I am getting lots of exercise.  Today I’m going to share another excerpt from Evelyn […]

Book Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on May 5, 2017 |

Tonight we open the comedy show at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts. The first act is a short play, “Anne-Arky” written by Lindsay Price, and it is great fun. I’ve worked with a great cast of players, and a terrific assistant director, Jamie R. Turney, and it has been a real pleasure these past […]

#fridayreads Book Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on April 28, 2017 |

It is only fitting that, on this day in particular, I continue sharing excerpts from the book I’m writing about my mother. This is her birthday. She died three years ago at age 95, and I still miss her. I am not sure when I will never miss her, or even if that is possible. […]

#Fridayreads Book Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on April 21, 2017 |

So, this morning when I came into my office to work on a blog, the ending for a short story I’d been working on popped into my head. I opened the story, thinking to just add some notes, but the narrative, and dialogue, was flowing, so I went with the flow. Almost two hours later, […]
