Posted by mcm0704 on September 26, 2018 |

You just never know what good old Windy’s going to say when the guys gather at the Mule Barn truck stop, and today’s offering from Slim Randles is a good example. The Mule Barn Truck stop is a fictional place, but it sure reminds me of the little diner my husband and I used to […]

A Dog’s Playground

Posted by mcm0704 on September 19, 2018 |

Before moving on to a guest post from Slim Randles, I want to share this picture of Dusty and Harry. The kennel is Dusty’s “safe place” where he is supposed to be able to get away from the cats, but Harry has other ideas. Today, Dusty had to walk over Harry to get comfortable for […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 10, 2018 |

What a deliciously cool morning it was today when I took my dog for a walk. I even had to put on a flannel shirt for the first time since March, but I’m not complaining. I’ll take cool any day over the blistering summer heat. Every now and then I receive a newsletter from Brain […]

Let’s start off a weekend of fun with this cute meme. Who can resist a kitten?   Some of you who have been following my blog for a while know that I got my professional start as a columnist for a Dallas suburban newspaper. It was a humor column about family life at the Miller […]

Of Birds And The Art of a Backhoe

Posted by mcm0704 on August 15, 2018 |

On my walk this morning I saw a bird that looked a lot like this picture of a baby Blue Heron. I don’t know for sure if that is what it was, but this is what it looked like. Of course I didn’t have my camera with me to take a picture. I was surprised […]

Think It’ll Rain?

Posted by mcm0704 on August 8, 2018 |

Slim Randles is today’s Wednesday’s Guest with an essay I can relate to today in a specific way as it is raining here, too. There is something so relaxing about rain in most circumstances, unless it turns into a raging storm. So far here, it is only rain, with an occasional rumble of thunder, just […]
