Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on July 15, 2019 |

For my vacation this year, I spent a week with my sister and her family in Lake City, Michigan. They always camp by the lake over the Fourth of July holiday, and I’ve only been there once before for my birthday. Lake Missaukee isn’t a very big lake compared to the others in and around […]

Happy Fourth – My Birthday

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2019 |

I could hardly let the Fourth of July pass without a mention on the blog today. After all, it’s my birthday, as well as that of the good ol’ U.S. of A. In years past on this date, I’ve shared an excerpt from my humorous memoir, A Dead Tomato Plant and A Paycheck about my […]

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 […]

Putting Differences Aside

Posted by mcm0704 on July 6, 2016 |

When I posted this last Wednesday, I had no idea how fitting it would be in light of the shootings in MN, TX, and LA.  I truly wish it wasn’t. Slim Randles, my frequent Wednesday’s Guest, is a man of humor and wisdom, and today he shares a touching essay on how the Fourth of July […]

Prizes! Prizes! Prizes!

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2016 |

It’s my birthday once again. They seem to come quicker and quicker each year. Funny how that happens. My grandmother told me they would, but I was sixteen then. What could she possibly mean? That summer I spent with her, the days moved as slowly as the cool breeze that wafted through the trees that shaded her front […]

And Happy Birthday to me.  Here is a picture of some of the early birthday presents I received. It is always so much fun to have a birthday celebration span several weeks, and this year has been one of those years. The first present that arrived was the dragon that one of my sisters painted. […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 3, 2015 |

All the flap about the Confederate Flag and other symbols of the time in our history that condoned slavery, makes me wonder just how far are we going to go to the extreme in dodging sensitivity. That era was not one of our more honorable ones. Neither was the time that we pushed the Native […]

Happy Birthday America

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2014 |

In addition to being a national holiday, the Fourth of July is my birthday. For years I thought all the fireworks and picnics and parades were just for me, and, boy, did I feel important. Then I found out that 99.99 percent of the American public was celebrating Independence Day, and just my family cared […]
