Cats And Egos And Power Struggles

Posted by mcm0704 on February 11, 2019 |

Every late winter/early spring I used to pull the first new grass for my horse as the fresh green blades were so good for helping him to shed his winter coat. Now I pull the grass for my cats. Outdoor cats can nibble on grass whenever the urge strikes them, but since mine are indoor […]

Who To Trust

Posted by mcm0704 on February 4, 2019 |

It is hard to believe, but after the deep freeze of last week, temperatures are rising to a balmy 47 degrees in Detroit and Chicago. Much of the Dakotas and Minnesota are still hovering near or just below zero, but according to my friend in South Dakota, that is a warm spell. Here in my […]

The Great Divide

Posted by mcm0704 on January 25, 2019 |

The little blue flowers in that picture were popping up in a field behind my house. I took the picture on a warm day last week. They must have liked the sunshine. I wish there was more sunshine in the halls of government these days. I, like so many others, am so tired of the […]

Hurricanes and Global Warming

Posted by mcm0704 on October 12, 2018 |

Starting off this Friday blog post with a picture of some white wildflowers I saw on my walk the other day. It has cooled off here in Texas, and the mornings are perfect for walking. I’m seeing a lot of these little flowers along the road and they dress the place up nicely.  While people […]

All About Cats

Posted by mcm0704 on September 24, 2018 |

Over the weekend I wasted, er, spent a couple of hours on the website Answer The Public, where we can find information about any topic. You merely type in a word and a circular grid appears with all kinds of questions related to the “what, why, how, when and who” related to the topic. Warning! […]

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 […]

#Fridayreads – Books to Consider

Posted by mcm0704 on August 10, 2018 |

For something just a little different on the blog today, I thought I’d share a bit about books that I recently read, or listened to. Between the news and the negative political ads that are cropping up, I want to disconnect from part of the real world, and for me, disconnecting has always meant getting […]

Preachers and Bicycles and Guilt

Posted by mcm0704 on August 1, 2018 |

I was so busy with an editing job, I nearly forgot to post Slim Randles latest offering for our reading pleasure. I am always grateful to Slim for sharing his columns with us here, as well as the readers in the hundreds of newspapers across the country where his column, Home Country,  appears. He is […]
