Political Absurdity

Posted by mcm0704 on June 14, 2019 |

This crate is supposed to offer Dusty a safe place to get away from the cats. He’s outnumbered four to one, but sometimes it isn’t always the safest place. Luckily, Harry is the one cat who really seems to like Dusty, and he often tries to buddy up to the dog. Perhaps you’re already aware […]

Memorial Day

Posted by mcm0704 on May 27, 2019 |

The other day, someone asked me what I was doing for the Memorial Day weekend, and I was surprised, as I always am since the holiday was moved from May 30. Back when I was a kid, we always knew when Memorial Day was coming around, and we always knew that it would be met […]

Absurdities Abound

Posted by mcm0704 on May 24, 2019 |

Before writing about the absurd deals that were made between our erstwhile leader here in the United States and the German financial institution, Deutsche Bank, I thought it would be nice to share a few pictures from my little corner of the world. This dog greets me and my dog every morning when we’re walking. […]

Politics, Cats and Jokes

Posted by mcm0704 on March 8, 2019 |

On my morning walk I saw some other flowers that survived the recent cold-snap here in North Texas. I think this is an Azalea bush, but it is different from any other bushes I’ve seen. If you look closely you can see my dog, Dusty. I didn’t know he was in the picture until I […]

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! […]
