#Fridayreads – Excerpt From a Humorous Memoir

Posted by mcm0704 on June 22, 2018 |

Now that I am back living in a neighborhood and not out in the country anymore, this excerpt from my humorous memoir, A Dead Tomato Plant And A Paycheck, is particularly meaningful. I did like my country home that was surrounded by pine trees, so there was no real lawn to deal with. The rest […]

A Special Dog

Posted by mcm0704 on June 13, 2018 |

Slim Randles is my guest again today. This time with a sweet story about a dog and his job. I’ve just returned from a quick trip to Austin, so no time to bake. Does anyone have a cookie or scone to share with our coffee? Before I turn the stage over to Slim Randles, I […]

Friday Read – Book Excerpt

Posted by mcm0704 on June 7, 2018 |

As promised on Monday, here is another excerpt from A Dead Tomato Plant and a Paycheck, my humorous memoir. Back when I was writing the weekly newspaper column, from which most of this book is taken, I didn’t shy away from poking fun at anyone, including myself. Today, let’s share some chocolate, chocolate chip muffins. […]

Mr. and Mrs. Wheezer

Posted by mcm0704 on May 30, 2018 |

Slim Randles is here to entertain us with another story about one of the guys from the Mule Barn Truck Stop gang. These people are imaginary…maybe, and we don’t know where the truck stop is located, but I imagine it could be any small rural town in any state in the country. Well, except Hawaii. […]

Some Things Can’t Wait

Posted by mcm0704 on May 22, 2018 |

Slim Randles is my guest today while I am otherwise preoccupied. I love this story about Marvin and his new fishing rod. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. It’s really starting to warm up here in Texas, so maybe it’s time for some lemonade. Help yourself. It was just one of those […]

Celebrating Mother’s Day

Posted by mcm0704 on May 13, 2018 |

In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I would dust off a column I wrote when my children were young and I was writing for a Dallas publication. This column, among others, is part of a book I’ve worked on off and on for a number of years – I hate to say how many […]

A History Lesson from Windy

Posted by mcm0704 on May 11, 2018 |

It’s a busy end of the week and weekend for me, so I am going to let Slim Randles entertain us with another posting from the Mule Barn Truck Stop, but first just a couple of things that are bothering me. I was listening to the confirmation hearing for Gina Haspel to head the CIA, […]
