Posted by mcm0704 on April 1, 2020 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with an entertaining story about rain and storms. When was the last time you said “thank you” for the rain? Before I turn the blog over to Slim, however, I do want to take a moment to remember my father who died on April 1, 2010. I’ll […]

#Humor From Slim Randles

Posted by mcm0704 on March 18, 2020 |

I just returned from North Carolina where I attended my granddaughter’s wedding. (By the picture above, you can probably guess what city we were in.) The festivities were all wonderful, but unfortunately, the plane ride stirred up my trigeminal neuralgia big time, and I wasn’t able to participate to the level that I would have […]

Learning to be Still – Tips from Kristen Lamb

Posted by mcm0704 on March 2, 2020 |

Kristen Lamb, an author and writing coach, writes a blog that I follow, and she recently posted an essay: Quiet: Have We Forgotten to Be Still in a World That Never Stops.  When I read the title, I was intrigued, mainly because I have always struggled with being still. Quiet. Sitting and doing… nothing. Perhaps […]

Of Goats and Farmers

Posted by mcm0704 on February 26, 2020 |

Join me in welcoming Slim Randles as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. This story about Steve and the goat really resonated with me. When I first moved to my little “ranch” in East Texas, I wanted a goat. Despite what folks said about not getting a billy, I bought the cutest little kid, that soon grew into […]

Good Deeds Go Unnoticed, Sometimes

Posted by mcm0704 on February 19, 2020 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. The guest here at my house is a return of the nasty cold I had last week. I thought I’d kicked it out, but somehow it slipped back in. Must have been that day it was unseasonably warm here in Northeast TX, and I had a window […]

A Message of Hope

Posted by mcm0704 on February 10, 2020 |

The following was taken from a letter that I, along with many others, recently received from Beto O’Rourke. It lays out many of my reactions to recent events as I try valiantly to cling to my faith in America and our government. I won’t publish the entire letter as it is very long, but I’ll […]
