More Than Just a House

Posted by mcm0704 on March 12, 2018 |

Today I say goodbye to the home I had in Winnsboro, TX where I happily played “farmer” for almost 17 years and shared many good years with my husband, Carl, until he died in 2013. We both enjoyed small-town living, the rural setting, and the many friends we had there. I remember when we were […]

Come to the Fair

Posted by mcm0704 on September 13, 2017 |

Slim Randles is my Wednesday’s Guest today with a nice piece about the county fair and who wins ribbons and who does not. I love going to fairs, big and small, and I do enjoy seeing what items, and animals, claim the top prizes. I also really enjoy a good funnel cake. In fact, going […]

The Thrill of Racing

Posted by mcm0704 on August 30, 2017 |

Slim Randles is here again as my Wednesday’s Guest with a piece about a day at the races. I’ve enjoyed going to horse races and even had a short – very short – career as an exercise rider for a man who raised thoroughbreds in Michigan. My career was not cut short because I couldn’t […]

Solving World Problems

Posted by mcm0704 on May 31, 2017 |

Slim Randles is here again as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a fun essay about men and horses and the benefits of pairing up. I have long known the benefits of pairing up with horses. I’ve had three in my lifetime, and below is a picture of my current horse, Banjo. I have had him now for close […]

A Different Way to Celebrate Thanksgiving

Posted by mcm0704 on November 23, 2016 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with an essay that resonates with me since I am a horse lover. Steve, one of the regulars at the Mule Barn Truck Stop, is doing something different for Thanksgiving. Speaking of which, I always bake pumpkin pies early in the week so we can make sure they are good […]

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, […]

What’s on Your Bucket List?

While I am still recovering from Ramsey Hunt Syndrome, I’ll let Slim Randles entertain you when I am able to be on the computer long enough to get his post up. This is a good one, so I hope you enjoy it. And help yourself to a cookie.   Steve reached up and put his […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on August 28, 2015 |

Here we are at the end of another week. It has been a busy one for me, and it seems like that has become a habit with me of late. While I have been busy with editing for a client, writing and taking care of some business, I have made time to get outside and […]

Horse Training Tips

Posted by mcm0704 on April 22, 2015 |

Once again Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest, with a little horse-training tip from Steve. I’ve never heard it called “boogering” a horse before, but I’ve had to get my horse, Banjo, accustomed to noises and fast movements. One does not want a horse to shy when you least expect it. That’s how […]

A Girl And Her Horse

Posted by mcm0704 on September 3, 2014 |

Girls are notoriously horse-crazy. I know I was as a child. I collected plastic horses and ceramic horses, and the first stories I wrote were about horses. One of the stories won the Scholastic Writing Awards contest when I was 12, and created a writing monster. (smile) I couldn’t have a horse of my own […]
