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 […]

Mid-Week #Humor from Slim Randles

Posted by mcm0704 on February 5, 2020 |

Since there’s still lots of winter happening, even here in NE Texas, I thought this arrangement of sunflowers and carnations would help everyone think Spring. I’ve been down with a nasty cold since Sunday, so I’m planning to stay wrapped in blankets tomorrow. The carnations are left from a bouquet that I bought two weeks […]

Humpday #humor from Slim Randles

Posted by mcm0704 on January 22, 2020 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a fun story about business – big city and small town. Like Slim and Herb and many others, I prefer small town and mom and pop shops. There’s something about those small stores and the people who run them that’s pretty special. Herb is that kind […]

#Humor from Slim Randles

Posted by mcm0704 on January 8, 2020 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. I guess there is lots of snow and cold winds where the Mule Barn Truck Stop is located. It’s sunny and a little warm here in my corner of NE Texas, so I don’t know whether to have a cup of coffee with the guys or iced […]
