Of Birds And The Art of a Backhoe

Posted by mcm0704 on August 15, 2018 |

On my walk this morning I saw a bird that looked a lot like this picture of a baby Blue Heron. I don’t know for sure if that is what it was, but this is what it looked like. Of course I didn’t have my camera with me to take a picture. I was surprised […]

Think It’ll Rain?

Posted by mcm0704 on August 8, 2018 |

Slim Randles is today’s Wednesday’s Guest with an essay I can relate to today in a specific way as it is raining here, too. There is something so relaxing about rain in most circumstances, unless it turns into a raging storm. So far here, it is only rain, with an occasional rumble of thunder, just […]

Garage Sale Treasures

It is sizzling down here in Texas. Eighty-one degrees when I went for my morning walk, and it is predicted to go up to 103. I hope it is a bit cooler where you are.  No matter the temperature, summertime is always a good time for some great cool drinks, so help yourself to a […]

Me And My Dog

Posted by mcm0704 on July 13, 2018 |

This week was kind of lonely without any company or any more birthday celebrations, and I’m glad I have the new dog to keep me company. I’ve had him just a little over a week, and he is settling in quite nicely. The cats, on the other hand, are not being so nice, especially Sammy, […]

Hot Enough For You?

Posted by mcm0704 on July 11, 2018 |

It’s Wednesday, so time for Slim Randles to entertain us with another story featuring the gang down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop.  It is so hot… How hot is it? Hot enough to keep the guys indoors and maybe they’re drinking iced tea instead of coffee. Help yourself to a glass and enjoy… “Hot? […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on July 9, 2018 |

Before moving on, I want to share a couple pictures from my big birthday bash that was held the end of June. This first one is of my son-in-law, Matt, who doesn’t like to have his picture taken. At any family gathering he joins my son, Paul, in avoiding cameras at all costs. While out […]

This is my first normal day in my office in just over a week. It was June 28 when I got the last two blog posts written and scheduled. I had company from out of town through Tuesday, then Wednesday I got my dog, and yesterday I slept off and on most of the day. […]

Happy Fourth of July

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2018 |

“It’s my birthday and I’ll cry if I want to…” For some reason that line always fights with “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy” for prominence in my mind on my birthday. The “why” of the second song is understandable, but I’ve never quite understood the significance of the crying until this year. There were lots […]

Taking a Break

Posted by mcm0704 on June 29, 2018 |

I will be offline for the most part during the next week and a half. First to spend a few days with my kids over the weekend celebrating my birthday without attachments to electronics. They have arranged everything for the party, and I don’t even know the venue, or what is planned for Saturday. I […]
