Celebrating Love

Posted by mcm0704 on February 13, 2019 |

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY   It’s a day early, I know, but I wanted to send the wish out anyway. Will you be doing anything special to mark the day? I may let the day pass without much attention, as celebrating without the person you loved for many years is so hard. I know I am […]

A Conversation With Windy

Posted by mcm0704 on February 5, 2019 |

I admire the guys at the Mule Barn Truck Stop who can follow the conversation with Windy and reply with hardly a moment’s hesitation. More power to them.  Let’s join the guys with a cup of […]

Friday Fun – Book Excerpt

Posted by mcm0704 on January 11, 2019 |

There is something so interesting about an old tree with its gnarly branches and scars where branches once were. I walk by this one most mornings when I am out walking and I finally remembered to take a picture. I thought the younger tree in the background was an nice touch to the photo.  Now […]

Book Excerpt – A Dead Tomato Plant & a Paycheck

Posted by mcm0704 on December 27, 2018 |

As our family, part of it anyway, met to exchange gifts the Sunday before Christmas, my granddaughter, Ally, came around with a small plastic bag to gather up the wrapping paper. We both chuckled at the memory of what the house looked like on Christmas when all the grand-kids were young and the whole family […]

We have just under two weeks before Christmas, and I have spent the major part of this past week down with a cold. That means that I am behind in almost all my preparations, but then what’s new? I have always done the Christmas Scramble to get everything done before the fat man comes down […]

Down a Slippery Slope

Posted by mcm0704 on December 12, 2018 |

Slim Randles is here today with a story from Marvin’s point of view. Marvin is one of the guys from the gang at the Mule Barn Truck Stop who we don’t hear about as much as the others, but when Marvin speaks, it’s always with a depth of wisdom, touched with sardonic wit.   Since we’re […]
