Honoring The Military

Posted by mcm0704 on November 12, 2018 |

It’s Veteran’s Day, a day to honor all the men and women who have served in the military throughout the years. Each year as this date rolls around, I think about all the men buried in a little cemetery in West Virginia, members of my father’s family who served in every war since the Spanish […]

My heart is heavy for the victims of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California early Thursday morning that left 13 dead, […]

Halloween and the Colors of Fall

Posted by mcm0704 on October 31, 2018 |

Halloween was one of my husband’s favorite holidays, leading up to all the others through December. He loved to sit on the porch swing wrapped in a monks cloak and scare the kids as they came up for treats. I have such fond memories of those days. That said, I find it ever so appropriate […]

Monday Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on October 29, 2018 |

We aren’t seeing many pretty fall colors here in my small town, but I saw this tree in my next-door-neighbor’s yard. It’s the first really bold color I’ve seen. I’m hoping there will be more.

Ready to Tee Up?

Posted by mcm0704 on October 24, 2018 |

Help me welcome Slim Randles to the blog today with a fun story about Doc and a squirrel and an interesting golf tournament. I’d enter just for the fun, but I think this tournament would challenge even pro golfers. Never having played golf, I’m not sure what golfers like as refreshements, but I suspect the […]

Monday Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on October 22, 2018 |

How was your weekend? Great, I hope. I had a fun time at a craft fair at Holly Brook Baptist Church on Saturday. Not such a fun time driving in the pouring rain on Friday to get there, but Saturday cleared up and people were ready to get out of their houses after days and […]
