Disgraceful Helsinki Summit

Posted by mcm0704 on July 20, 2018 |

Before getting into the heart of this blog, I wanted to share a couple of pretty pictures with you. Looking at some of the beauty around us can help us keep the stress levels down. When I go for a walk here in the city where I now live, I don’t see nearly as many […]

Garage Sale Treasures

Posted by mcm0704 on July 18, 2018 |

It is sizzling down here in Texas. Eighty-one degrees when I went for my morning walk, and it is predicted to go up to 103. I hope it is a bit cooler where you are.  No matter the temperature, summertime is always a good time for some great cool drinks, so help yourself to a […]

World Cup Soccer and Writing

Posted by mcm0704 on July 16, 2018 |

Since I like to celebrate strong women in my books and on my blog, I want to say how impressed I was with Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović when the Croatian Soccer Team lost to France in the final game of the World Cup. The internet was filled with pictures of her celebrating the team despite the […]

Me And My Dog

Posted by mcm0704 on July 13, 2018 |

This week was kind of lonely without any company or any more birthday celebrations, and I’m glad I have the new dog to keep me company. I’ve had him just a little over a week, and he is settling in quite nicely. The cats, on the other hand, are not being so nice, especially Sammy, […]

Hot Enough For You?

Posted by mcm0704 on July 11, 2018 |

It’s Wednesday, so time for Slim Randles to entertain us with another story featuring the gang down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop.  It is so hot… How hot is it? Hot enough to keep the guys indoors and maybe they’re drinking iced tea instead of coffee. Help yourself to a glass and enjoy… “Hot? […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on July 9, 2018 |

Before moving on, I want to share a couple pictures from my big birthday bash that was held the end of June. This first one is of my son-in-law, Matt, who doesn’t like to have his picture taken. At any family gathering he joins my son, Paul, in avoiding cameras at all costs. While out […]

Friday’s Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 6, 2018 |

This is my first normal day in my office in just over a week. It was June 28 when I got the last two blog posts written and scheduled. I had company from out of town through Tuesday, then Wednesday I got my dog, and yesterday I slept off and on most of the day. […]

Happy Fourth of July

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2018 |

“It’s my birthday and I’ll cry if I want to…” For some reason that line always fights with “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy” for prominence in my mind on my birthday. The “why” of the second song is understandable, but I’ve never quite understood the significance of the crying until this year. There were lots […]

Taking a Break

Posted by mcm0704 on June 29, 2018 |

I will be offline for the most part during the next week and a half. First to spend a few days with my kids over the weekend celebrating my birthday without attachments to electronics. They have arranged everything for the party, and I don’t even know the venue, or what is planned for Saturday. I […]

Mysteries That Matter

Posted by mcm0704 on June 27, 2018 |

It’s not even summer yet, and already Texas is sizzling. It got to nearly 100 degrees the other day, and I’m sure that it is pretty hot in many other places. Perhaps it’s  time for some cherry lemonade. It’s easy to make, and I have plenty, so help yourself. If you’d like the recipe, you […]
