Salesmen Sell, Or Do They

Posted by mcm0704 on September 13, 2019 |

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and that’s just what has kept some salesmen going, reaching deep into their bag of ingenuity to find a new trick. Slim Randles is here today with a story about Willoughby, the bane of the folks at the Mule Barn Truck Stop. Grab a cup of coffee and a […]

It’s been a crazy few days for me, so things are all out of order regarding my usual blog pattern. Slim Randles is my guest today with a thoughtful essay about September and the move from Summer to Autumn and what that means for country folks. And other folks, too.  He might be back on […]

Posted by mcm0704 on September 4, 2019 |

Pull up a chair and help me welcome Michael E. Witzgall to the blog as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. I reviewed his police procedural mystery,Sentinel’s Dilemma, here on Sunday, and today he’s sharing a very nice story about how he learned to think outside the box. Or maybe more like he showed his grandfather how to. […]

The Killing Just Goes On And On

Posted by mcm0704 on September 2, 2019 |

I wasn’t going to post anything on the blog today. My heart was just too heavy after hearing of yet another mass shooting over the weekend, and I turned my attention to creative things that would lift my spirits. But then this letter from Beto O’Rourke popped up in my mailbox a few minutes ago […]

Hot Enough For You?

Posted by mcm0704 on August 23, 2019 |

Yoga is supposed to be good for you, but I might have over-stretched the ‘good’ in my yoga class on Wednesday. Had horrible muscle spasms in my back on Thursday and it’s just marginally better today. Thank goodness my friend Slim is always ready with one of his humor columns when I am not able […]

What We Do For Love

Posted by mcm0704 on August 7, 2019 |

After a somewhat stumbling start to my week, I’m happy to let Slim Randles entertain us all today with a bit of levity.  First I’m in great need of chocolate. How about you? Want to join me in some decadence? Help yourself and enjoy… When you have a teenage relative, and the minimum age is […]

All-American Names

Posted by mcm0704 on July 31, 2019 |

Did you listen to the Democratic Presidential Candidates Debate last night? I did not, even though I’m very interested in what the candidates stand for. The problem with so many debates is that they turn into attacks on the other candidates, and that is not what a true debate is supposed to be.  So, I […]
