Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Posted by mcm0704 on July 10, 2020 |

The news is so depressing, I can’t even read about it anymore, and I’m sure I’m not alone. Between the pandemic, the nonsense that goes on in politics, and the way people in general are verbally and physically attacking others, I’m about to give up on the whole human race.

Graduating This Year?

Posted by mcm0704 on June 8, 2020 |

Saturday was the official graduation day for my youngest granddaughter in Austin Texas. She’s the last of the grandkids to graduate from high school, and her graduation is so different on so many levels from her cousins. First of all, there was no traditional ceremony in an auditorium where all the kids gathered to sweat […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on May 11, 2020 |

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. Even though social distancing guidelines prevented hugs or kisses, it was still great to have company both Saturday and Sunday. And the whole weekend was a celebration of flowers. This arrangement with the bright yellow flowers came from my son and his family in Austin. The lily in […]
