Christmas Cheer

Posted by mcm0704 on December 2, 2020 |

Well, December is upon us and we’ll soon be facing another New Year. This past one certainly has been a challenge for so many of us, and my hope is that we can all ease through these next few weeks without any mishaps and get a start on 2021 with good health. Before I turn […]

Day Before Thanksgiving

Posted by mcm0704 on November 25, 2020 |

When I was a child, we would often go to West Virginia for Thanksgiving. My father would feel the pull to visit his childhood home, and his kinfolk, and my sister and I would go every other year, as dictated in divorce papers. Back then, I didn’t know about divorce papers, or what my mother […]

How Smart is a Turkey?

Posted by mcm0704 on November 18, 2020 |

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. That is if you think in terms of calendar corners, since we just have one weekend to go then Turkey Day will be here. The  holiday will be very different this year, thanks to COVID19, and families may not be gathering like in the past. As for my family, […]

Venerable Movie Houses

Posted by mcm0704 on November 11, 2020 |

Before moving on, I do want to pause a moment to acknowledge all the Veterans across the country. Thank you for your service! In the past, I’ve blogged about all the members of my family who have been in the military and you can read that post HERE if you’d care to. I wrote it […]

Post-Election Humor

Posted by mcm0704 on November 4, 2020 |

As I write this, we don’t know for sure who has won the elections across the country. Lots of mail-in ballots are still to be counted. I’m still staying away from news for the most part, and I thought a little humor from Slim Randles might be in order. The following is an older post […]

The Club That Never Was

Posted by mcm0704 on October 12, 2020 |

My friend Slim Randles is filling in for me today as I’m still in the midst of treatments for the nasty pain in my head and not able to work for long. I found this older column of his from when I was the managing editor of WinnsboroToday.com and he shared his work there. That’s […]

Posted by mcm0704 on October 7, 2020 |

Grab a cup of coffee or tea to go with a piece of pie and sit back to enjoy this story from Slim Randles who’s my Wednesday’s Guest today. You can top your apple pie with cheese or ice-cream, but I’ll be putting mine in a bowl and adding milk and a little bit of […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on October 5, 2020 |

Since my week is going to be tied up with some treatments for pain that lay me low for several days, I’m going to let Slim Randles entertain you today and Wednesday, then there will be a book review on Saturday. My plan is to be feeling much better after my last treatment next Monday, […]

Sweet Summer Nights

Posted by mcm0704 on September 2, 2020 |

Oh how I love this essay from Slim Randles, who is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. Maybe because I, too, enjoy a summer evening on the back porch, as long as the mosquitoes stay away, and I do enjoy a tune on the guitar. There was a time I could pluck a string or two. […]
