More Than Just a House

Posted by mcm0704 on March 12, 2018 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with an essay that resonates with me since I am a horse lover.

A Man And A Horse

Posted by mcm0704 on May 27, 2016 |

Let’s welcome Slim Randles and his cowboy friend, Steve, as my guests today. One of these days I might get back to my regular schedule of blogging, with guests on Wednesday’s, but until then, there will be surprises, like this one. I could really relate to Steve today. There is nothing like a good horse, […]
