Some Things Can’t Wait

Posted by mcm0704 on May 22, 2018 |

Slim Randles is my guest today while I am otherwise preoccupied. I love this story about Marvin and his new fishing rod. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. It’s really starting to warm up here in Texas, so maybe it’s time for some lemonade. Help yourself. It was just one of those […]

The Many Faces of Toast

Posted by mcm0704 on February 28, 2018 |

The guys down at Slim Randles’ imaginary diner – or maybe not so imaginary – The Mule Barn Truck Stop, sometimes have way too much time on their hands. Must be the effects of the deep, dark winter when not much happens except cold and darkness and probably lots of snow.  I prefer my coffee in […]

Fishing Isn’t Always About the Fish

Posted by mcm0704 on March 18, 2015 |

This from our favorite Wednesday’s Guest, Slim Randles, really resonated with me. I had a fishing buddy in Omaha who shared the same philosophy about fishing. Since we’re out at the creek with our rods, there’s no refreshments today. Just the clean, clear air and the cool, rushing water. And of course, our friends…. As […]

Advice for the Lovelorn

Posted by mcm0704 on October 3, 2012 |

My Wednesday’s Guest today is my friend Slim Randles. If it wasn’t for him, I would probably have a lot of blank pages on Wednesdays. (smile) Thanks to Slim for being so generous with his work. He doesn’t get paid for this. I don’t get paid for this. We just do it because we like […]
