Packing up one house to move to another is only half the battle. Now I am in my new house surrounded by boxes. Thank goodness, my kids have been able to come and help with the settling in, and a couple of rooms are almost completely set up, most importantly the kitchen and the bedroom. […]

Good Friends and a Summer’s Evening

Posted by mcm0704 on August 3, 2016 |

This essay by Slim Randles, today’s Wednesday’s Guest, put me in mind of the summer evenings of my childhood when us kids would be playing baseball on the street while the grownups sat on porch swings, enjoying a cool evening after a sweltering day. There is something special about sharing moments like these with friends while connecting to the […]

Posted by mcm0704 on March 2, 2015 |

Last week ended on a high note for me, an amazingly high note, and how it all happened is quite a story. It started Thursday morning when a good friend, Becky, called to ask if I would go to the Winnsboro Area Chamber of Commerce Banquet with her Thursday evening. She said “they” were making […]
