More Christmas Magic

MERRY CHRISTMAS HAPPY HOLY DAYS   Since I am Christian and most of my family and friends are, too, I thought I would lead with that holiday wish, and include the other for the people who celebrate Hanukkah, or any of the other winter solstice holidays. May we all be holy these days and into the […]

Some thoughts and facts about the holiday that we in the United States celebrate this weekend.   Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day and was initiated to honor the soldiers of the Union and Confederate armies who died during the American Civil War.

Happy Birthday America

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2014 |

In addition to being a national holiday, the Fourth of July is my birthday. For years I thought all the fireworks and picnics and parades were just for me, and, boy, did I feel important. Then I found out that 99.99 percent of the American public was celebrating Independence Day, and just my family cared […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on January 20, 2014 |

Today we honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Some people don’t think any more of the day other than the fact that it is a holiday and a day off work. Other people are irritated that there is yet another holiday to inconvenience them by closing banks, the postal service, and other government offices. Thank goodness, […]

A Holiday Gift

Posted by mcm0704 on December 14, 2012 |

HAPPY HOLIDAYS As we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of preparing for the holidays, it is easy to forget what the season is all about. After my husband and I moved to Texas from Michigan, we rarely made it back to our home state for holidays, and my mother always sent handmade […]

After the Fun

Posted by mcm0704 on December 27, 2009 |

In keeping with the Holiday season, here is another excerpt from A Dead Tomato Plant and a Paycheck. Enjoy….. The day after Christmas was usually one of the best and one of the worst days of the year for our family. If that doesn’t make sense to you, don’t worry, I’m not sure it does […]

At this time of celebrating winter Holidays, I want to wish everyone the happiest of times with family and friends, and all the best for the New Year. I celebrate Christmas, and our cat, John, has decided he wants to be a Christmas present. Either that, or he is waiting to see what Santa is […]

Merry Christmas

Posted by mcm0704 on December 15, 2007 |

I know the politically correct thing to say at this time is Happy Holidays, lest we offend someone who doesn’t celebrate Christmas, but I feel like being a rebel today. Besides that, I don’t get the least bit offended when someone says Happy Hanukka or Happy Kwanzaa. Those wishes mean something special to the folks […]
