Need Help With That Car?

Posted by mcm0704 on June 12, 2019 |

What is it they say about the best laid plans? Mine for this week didn’t include a trip to the veterinarian with one of my cats, Lily, that ate up most of Tuesday mid-day. Got home from the 11 o’clock appointment at 2:30. Oh, about those plans? On Monday, I finished up a writing spree […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on June 10, 2019 |

Before I left my daughter’s home in Missouri last week, she gave me a cutting from a plant in her yard. I don’t remember what the plant is called, but it loves sun and I put it in a place on my front porch that gets a lot of light. The smaller, darker green leaves […]

How I Spent My Vacation

Posted by mcm0704 on June 6, 2019 |

Last Thursday, May 31, I left for a short trip to Missouri to see my oldest daughter Cindy and her family. I couldn’t post about the trip in advance as it was a surprise for her birthday weekend. I went to see her in “Steel Magnolias” at the historic Farris Theatre where her family has […]

About Cats and Other Things

Posted by mcm0704 on May 31, 2019 |

That’s another picture of the stray cat that I see now and then on my morning walks. I thought that stance was particularly mighty. Last Monday night there were as many as 53 twisters that forecasters said may have touched down across eight states stretching eastward from Idaho and Colorado. Parts of Ohio near Dayton were […]

Mid-Week Humor

Posted by mcm0704 on May 29, 2019 |

This picture has nothing to do with the content of the blog today. I just thought it was so amusing to see Sammy in the shower yesterday. He appears to be asking if I’m coming in or not. 🙂 The cats are intrigued by this whole shower thing, sometimes actually coming in while the water […]

Memorial Day

Posted by mcm0704 on May 27, 2019 |

The other day, someone asked me what I was doing for the Memorial Day weekend, and I was surprised, as I always am since the holiday was moved from May 30. Back when I was a kid, we always knew when Memorial Day was coming around, and we always knew that it would be met […]

Conversation Starters

Posted by mcm0704 on May 15, 2019 |

You never know when you’re going to need an interesting topic to chew over when gathered with friends. The guys who go to the Mule Barn Truck Stop on a regular basis are not immune to the need, as evidenced by Bert, and shared here by Slim Randles. I have some cherry pie left from […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on May 13, 2019 |

So, John Bolton is trying to affect a regime change in Iran through the use of the sanctions that disrupt the economy, causing a financial crisis and spurring mass protests across the country that will topple the current rulers. (You can listen to a report about this on The Daily from The New York Times) Is […]

Checking the Speed Limit

Posted by mcm0704 on May 10, 2019 |

This picture of Lily that I took the other day has nothing to do with the subject of this blog post. I just thought it was a nice image to carry into the weekend. And I don’t know if she had been sleeping this way, or just slowly making her way from the top perch […]
