Do You Resolve?

Posted by mcm0704 on December 30, 2019 |

On Friday, Slim Randles shared some of the New Year’s resolutions from the gang down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop. They were typical of the wry sense of humor most of the men have and quite fun to read. That post prompted me to think of what my resolution might be, and since I […]

The Ghost of Christmas Past

Posted by mcm0704 on December 20, 2019 |

The holidays often bring bittersweet memories to the surface of our minds, and this year is no different for me.  We often miss the people who have left big holes in our lives more poignantly as we prepare for celebrations, and I am missing my husband. He loved to give presents in the most dramatic […]

All About Books

Posted by mcm0704 on November 18, 2019 |

Good Monday morning. Today the blog will primarily be about books and a great contest. I’ll share some danish as we read along… We writers know the tough work of the business really starts after the hard work of crafting a novel ends and we have to start the marketing. It would be so much […]

What Do We Owe Veterans?

Posted by mcm0704 on November 11, 2019 |

Every year on Veterans Day, I’ve always started my blog by taking a moment to say thanks to the members of my family who have served in the military: My husband, my daughter, my son, and my brother. My daughter, Dany, was in the Army and son, David, was in the Marines. They spent many […]

Friday Reads – Excerpt From A Dead Tomato Plant and a Paycheck

Posted by mcm0704 on November 1, 2019 |

Today I’m thinking about my husband and missing him. Had he lived, this would be his 82nd birthday. When I was contemplating what to write about for today’s blog, I thought of how much he liked Halloween. He loved to sit out on the porch in a  costume and make scary noises as the kids […]

Happy Fourth – My Birthday

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2019 |

I could hardly let the Fourth of July pass without a mention on the blog today. After all, it’s my birthday, as well as that of the good ol’ U.S. of A. In years past on this date, I’ve shared an excerpt from my humorous memoir, A Dead Tomato Plant and A Paycheck about my […]

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 […]

Happy Birthday, Mom

Posted by mcm0704 on April 28, 2019 |

Had she lived, my mother would have reached the 100-year milestone today, April 28. She came close. She was just a couple weeks shy of her 95th birthday when she died, and the doctor said that was close enough to celebrate a long life. One day, a few months after she died, I was taking […]

Dogs And A #FridayRead

Posted by mcm0704 on January 18, 2019 |

It’s taken my dog, Dusty, a long time to feel comfortable enough in the house to play, but he finally decided the other day that it was okay to chase this toy. Some of his reticence might be due to how the cat, Sammy, terrorizes him, but some of it is due to the fact […]

Friday Fun – Book Excerpt

Posted by mcm0704 on January 11, 2019 |

There is something so interesting about an old tree with its gnarly branches and scars where branches once were. I walk by this one most mornings when I am out walking and I finally remembered to take a picture. I thought the younger tree in the background was an nice touch to the photo.  Now […]
