Monday Fun and a Free Book

Posted by mcm0704 on December 4, 2017 |

Thought I’d start the day with a fun meme. I love this little kitty, and she can steal my mouse any time she wants. Things are getting busier and busier for me as I get closer to my moving date, which will be sometime right after Christmas. Adding all the things that have to be […]

Apologies and Jokes

Posted by mcm0704 on November 25, 2017 |

Perhaps it was the holiday, or perhaps it was because the server was down, and I did not know it because of the holiday, the website was nonfunctional for several days. My apologies for not seeing it right away, but all is well now. I do hope that all my U.S. friends and family had […]

Contests, Giveaways and Friends

Posted by mcm0704 on November 8, 2017 |

Here’s another fun hunting story from Slim Randles. These are almost as good as “the one that got away” stories. And what would we do without friends to help us out when we need an extra hand? I am sure appreciating my friends a lot in this moving process. It has gotten a bit nippy […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 6, 2017 |

Sharing something pretty first, before getting into the tragic news of what happened yesterday. These are the azaleas on the side of my house. They have been blooming for a couple of weeks, and I was glad the flowers were still there when I went outside the other day. We have had erratic weather here […]

My Halloween Treat

Posted by mcm0704 on October 31, 2017 |

Today I can wish folks a happy Halloween for real. It is also the last day I can wear my Halloween socks, which is a good thing as I wore them all week, and they really need to go to the laundry basket. Even the dog avoids my feet. But aren’t they cute. I felt like a […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 29, 2017 |

The recent intense rancor on social media surrounding the actions of NFL players last weekend started me thinking about how much more productive discussions might be if we did what Native Americans did in order to establish respect between their tribe and another, as well as the white man. Some of us who grew up […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 22, 2017 |

Before getting into the horrible news from the Caribbean and Mexico, just a touchof cuteness to brighten our Friday a bit. The devastation from the three major hurricanes since Harvey hit the south coast of Texas just keeps getting worse and worse. The two small islands of Antigua and Barbuda have virtually been destroyed. Dominican Prime Minister […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 1, 2017 |

Heading into the Labor Day weekend, we who are still safe and dry are conflicted about doing the usual end-of-summer celebration. At least I am a bit. I can’t imagine how horrible it is for all the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. I am thankful that most of my relatives in Houston were not flooded […]

The Thrill of Racing

Posted by mcm0704 on August 30, 2017 |

Slim Randles is here again as my Wednesday’s Guest with a piece about a day at the races. I’ve enjoyed going to horse races and even had a short – very short – career as an exercise rider for a man who raised thoroughbreds in Michigan. My career was not cut short because I couldn’t […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on August 25, 2017 |

Today’s blog post is going to truly be a mix of odds and ends. I am still busy clearing my house to list it for sale, and the task has been daunting, especially my office. A friend once said that a cluttered desk is a sign of a creative mind, and I take that very seriously.  […]
