Saying Goodbye is Hard

Posted by mcm0704 on August 16, 2017 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a thoughtful piece about saying goodbye to things and people and pets we love. I almost didn’t post it because it made me cry when I read it. I could have used last week’s Home Country column, which was humorous, but this one fits my state […]

Posted by mcm0704 on August 11, 2017 |

When I read the following that came to me as a press release from Queendom.com, I found the results of the survey quite interesting. From one generation to the next, we curmudgeons have often said there is no hope for those that follow us, but there is actually a lot of hope. I knew that […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on July 24, 2017 |

I’m back! Did you all play nicely while I was gone? The two-week drama camp was amazing, and the performances were outstanding. Here is a picture of just one of the scenes.

This is always a really busy time for me as I jump between two drama camps – one that just finished and one that starts July 10th – and have my birthday bash in between. But I love the company, and I love the kids who come to the camps. Even though I am ready […]
