Pinatas And Parties

Posted by mcm0704 on September 17, 2018 |

The other day my neighbors were celebrating one of their young daughter’s birthday with a small gathering of friends and a pinata.

Thanks to Wikipedia, I found out that the pinata originated in […]

Quilting Could Take Years

Posted by mcm0704 on May 24, 2017 |

How absolutely horrid that terrorists chose a family-friendly site to enact another bombing that took so many lives and injured so many more.

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?
