Posted by mcm0704 on October 18, 2017 |

It’s Wednesday and time for Slim Randles to entertain us with one of his weekly columns. He likes to tell stories about the guys down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop, a place that has become very real to me over the years that he has been sharing his columns with me. I can easily […]

Relieve the Stress

Posted by mcm0704 on October 5, 2017 |

Since things have been so dire in the news, in the world, and even in some of our own lives for a while, I thought we could use a little relief from the stress with some fun from Slim Randles. He is usually my Wednesday’s Guest, but the week got away from me, as did […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 29, 2017 |

The recent intense rancor on social media surrounding the actions of NFL players last weekend started me thinking about how much more productive discussions might be if we did what Native Americans did in order to establish respect between their tribe and another, as well as the white man. Some of us who grew up […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 22, 2017 |

Before getting into the horrible news from the Caribbean and Mexico, just a touchof cuteness to brighten our Friday a bit. The devastation from the three major hurricanes since Harvey hit the south coast of Texas just keeps getting worse and worse. The two small islands of Antigua and Barbuda have virtually been destroyed. Dominican Prime Minister […]

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 […]

Archery at its Best

Posted by mcm0704 on September 8, 2017 |

I know it isn’t Wednesday, but Slim Randles is here today instead of the usual Friday fare on the blog. Since deciding to sell my property and move, life has gotten crazy busy and all my plans to stick to a blogging schedule have been blown away. So, it will be interesting to all of us, […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 1, 2017 |

Heading into the Labor Day weekend, we who are still safe and dry are conflicted about doing the usual end-of-summer celebration. At least I am a bit. I can’t imagine how horrible it is for all the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. I am thankful that most of my relatives in Houston were not flooded […]

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 […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on August 25, 2017 |

Today’s blog post is going to truly be a mix of odds and ends. I am still busy clearing my house to list it for sale, and the task has been daunting, especially my office. A friend once said that a cluttered desk is a sign of a creative mind, and I take that very seriously.  […]
