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 […]

Posted by mcm0704 on June 22, 2018 |

Now that I am back living in a neighborhood and not out in the country anymore, this excerpt from my humorous memoir, A Dead Tomato Plant And A Paycheck, is particularly meaningful. I did like my country home that was surrounded by pine trees, so there was no real lawn to deal with. The rest […]

Book Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on June 30, 2017 |

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 […]
