Pearl Harbor Day 2018

Posted by mcm0704 on December 7, 2018 |

Today, we pause a moment to remember what happened one December day when early in the morning Japanese war planes made a stealth attack on Pearl Harbor.  We mourn those who lost their lives that day, as well as the thousands others who died in battle for four years after the attack, until the Japanese […]

Windy’s Gonna be Rich

Posted by mcm0704 on December 5, 2018 |

Slim Randles is today’s Wednesday’s guest with the latest from Windy, who has never found a word he didn’t like to mangle. Still, the guys at the Mule Bar Truck Stop like to keep him around. It’s always good to have some comic relief. It is pretty cold here in Texas today, and it was […]

Does Anyone Tell the Truth Anymore?

Posted by mcm0704 on December 3, 2018 |

The other day this lovely card came in the mail from former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn. I felt quite honored, even though I knew the same card had probably been sent to hundreds of other people, with the same message. Yes, of course, the card came with a request to donate to […]

Fun With Windy

Posted by mcm0704 on November 28, 2018 |

Before moving on to Slim’s story about Windy, I want to share this picture. It’s the first grandchild coloring to grace the front of my refrigerator in my new home, and it was done by my granddaughter Becky who is in college, which proves you can color at any age. BTW, I hate to admit […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 26, 2018 |

My Thanksgiving week was pretty terrific. My son, Mike, and his family came up from Austin for a few days, so I got to spend some good times with them. Then on Thanksgiving day, another son joined us for the day and we ate a great meal that my daughter-in-law prepared. Yeah Corina. The next […]

Thanksgiving Blessings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 21, 2018 |

HAPPY THANKSGIVING  Sending out good wishes to everyone who celebrates this day of gratefulness. I hope you have much to celebrate. It always seems a little trite, and almost a cliche, to say one is most thankful for family, but I am. I have the most amazing children, grandchildren and extended family, and that was […]

A Note From Beto O’Rourke

Posted by mcm0704 on November 16, 2018 |

Before moving on to the letter that Beto O’Rourke sent to his supporters last week, I want to share this picture of what I thought was the last rose to bloom before winter sets in for real here in East Texas. When I took the shot, I noticed a few buds on this bush and […]

Honoring The Military

Posted by mcm0704 on November 12, 2018 |

It’s Veteran’s Day, a day to honor all the men and women who have served in the military throughout the years. Each year as this date rolls around, I think about all the men buried in a little cemetery in West Virginia, members of my father’s family who served in every war since the Spanish […]
