Words of Wisdom for Graduates

Posted by mcm0704 on June 17, 2019 |

As a special treat today, I have Slim Randles with a fun post about graduation and graduation speakers. Enjoy… When we filtered in for coffee at the Mule Barn truck stop, we were surprised to see Jim Albertson already there, already drinking coffee and looking as though he lost his last friend. It’s so unlike […]

Political Absurdity

Posted by mcm0704 on June 14, 2019 |

This crate is supposed to offer Dusty a safe place to get away from the cats. He’s outnumbered four to one, but sometimes it isn’t always the safest place. Luckily, Harry is the one cat who really seems to like Dusty, and he often tries to buddy up to the dog. Perhaps you’re already aware […]

Need Help With That Car?

Posted by mcm0704 on June 12, 2019 |

What is it they say about the best laid plans? Mine for this week didn’t include a trip to the veterinarian with one of my cats, Lily, that ate up most of Tuesday mid-day. Got home from the 11 o’clock appointment at 2:30. Oh, about those plans? On Monday, I finished up a writing spree […]

Mid-Week Humor

Posted by mcm0704 on May 29, 2019 |

This picture has nothing to do with the content of the blog today. I just thought it was so amusing to see Sammy in the shower yesterday. He appears to be asking if I’m coming in or not. 🙂 The cats are intrigued by this whole shower thing, sometimes actually coming in while the water […]

Absurdities Abound

Posted by mcm0704 on May 24, 2019 |

Before writing about the absurd deals that were made between our erstwhile leader here in the United States and the German financial institution, Deutsche Bank, I thought it would be nice to share a few pictures from my little corner of the world. This dog greets me and my dog every morning when we’re walking. […]

Conversation Starters

Posted by mcm0704 on May 15, 2019 |

You never know when you’re going to need an interesting topic to chew over when gathered with friends. The guys who go to the Mule Barn Truck Stop on a regular basis are not immune to the need, as evidenced by Bert, and shared here by Slim Randles. I have some cherry pie left from […]

Dear Census Bureau

Posted by mcm0704 on May 1, 2019 |

Since journalists, pundits, judges, and government officials are having a heavy debate about the upcoming census and what questions might be on it, I thought it appropriate to share this March 2010 letter that my friend Slim Randles sent to the census bureau back then. In terms of money being wasted and unnecessary questions, not […]

Fly Fishing And Writing

Posted by mcm0704 on April 24, 2019 |

Before moving on to Slim Randles guest post for today, I want to share this photo I took the other day. Sometimes the pictures just turn out perfect. Not because of any great expertise on my part, however. I think it’s just luck. I took several shots of this gathering of wildflowers from different angles, […]

Loving The Work

Posted by mcm0704 on April 17, 2019 |

The guys down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop think tank ponder a most important question today, “Do you like the work you do?” While posed with a hint of amusement, that really is an important question for all of us to consider. How many people are ground down in a job they hate just […]

Determination Pays Off

Posted by mcm0704 on April 10, 2019 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a fun story about fly fishing and determination. No fish were harmed in the process. Read on to see what I mean. And have a cookie to go with your morning coffee or morning tea, or whatever you choose to drink in the AM.   It […]
