Black Friday Shopping

Posted by mcm0704 on November 27, 2020 |

Yesterday I took my dog for a walk in a nearby park. It was a pretty day, warm and sunny, and we both enjoyed the outing. Of course, I can’t resist taking a picture or two. As we all know, today is the biggest retail day of the year for most retail stores, but it […]

Day Before Thanksgiving

Posted by mcm0704 on November 25, 2020 |

When I was a child, we would often go to West Virginia for Thanksgiving. My father would feel the pull to visit his childhood home, and his kinfolk, and my sister and I would go every other year, as dictated in divorce papers. Back then, I didn’t know about divorce papers, or what my mother […]

Book Review: The Love Note by Joanna Davidson Politano

Posted by mcm0704 on November 16, 2020 |

Is it a sign of the times, or just my bad luck to read samples of some books, then buy them or get them from NetGalley, only to read a few chapters and give up? Or maybe it’s my state of mind, which really has no name right now. Between my health issues and current […]

Words of Wisdom

Posted by mcm0704 on November 9, 2020 |

Unfortunately, I don’t see as many pretty colors on trees as Autumn slowly turns to winter. Most of the trees around me have leaves that turn a bit yellow, sometimes with a hint of gold or orange, but the colors aren’t as spectacular as they are in other places. When I take my daily walk […]

Post-Election Humor

Posted by mcm0704 on November 4, 2020 |

As I write this, we don’t know for sure who has won the elections across the country. Lots of mail-in ballots are still to be counted. I’m still staying away from news for the most part, and I thought a little humor from Slim Randles might be in order. The following is an older post […]

Fun With Cats

If you’re anything like me, you’re beyond tired of the campaigning, the political crap being flung all around, and the constant dire news. So today, the day before the election here in the U.S., I thought it would be fun to have a Cat Day on my blog again. You who read the blog regularly […]
