Of Birds And The Art of a Backhoe

Posted by mcm0704 on August 15, 2018 |

On my walk this morning I saw a bird that looked a lot like this picture of a baby Blue Heron. I don’t know for sure if that is what it was, but this is what it looked like. Of course I didn’t have my camera with me to take a picture. I was surprised […]

Think It’ll Rain?

Posted by mcm0704 on August 8, 2018 |

Slim Randles is today’s Wednesday’s Guest with an essay I can relate to today in a specific way as it is raining here, too. There is something so relaxing about rain in most circumstances, unless it turns into a raging storm. So far here, it is only rain, with an occasional rumble of thunder, just […]

Garage Sale Treasures

Posted by mcm0704 on July 18, 2018 |

It is sizzling down here in Texas. Eighty-one degrees when I went for my morning walk, and it is predicted to go up to 103. I hope it is a bit cooler where you are.  No matter the temperature, summertime is always a good time for some great cool drinks, so help yourself to a […]

Hot Enough For You?

Posted by mcm0704 on July 11, 2018 |

It’s Wednesday, so time for Slim Randles to entertain us with another story featuring the gang down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop.  It is so hot… How hot is it? Hot enough to keep the guys indoors and maybe they’re drinking iced tea instead of coffee. Help yourself to a glass and enjoy… “Hot? […]

Happy Fourth of July

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2018 |
