Government Shutdown

Posted by mcm0704 on January 14, 2019 |

The area around my house in the city is not particularly scenic. Many of the houses are very old and run down, and a number of them have lots of junk in the yards. Still, I manage to find some pretty things to photograph. There are a few of these bushes with the bright red […]

Where is the Humanity?

Posted by mcm0704 on December 17, 2018 |

December 8, seven-year-oldĀ Jakelin Caal Maquin, from Guatemala, died while in custody of Border Patrol Agents, provoking an instant backlash in the news and online about the way migrants are treated at the border. The latest new story from NBC News says that it’s likely she died of sepsis, but a full autopsy report is not […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on December 10, 2018 |

Finally, after a number of years, I’m back in the mood to decorate for Christmas, and it has been fun the past couple of weeks to pull out the decorations and remember why they are all so special. One of my favorite things to set up each year is this pair of dolls my mother […]

Does Anyone Tell the Truth Anymore?

Posted by mcm0704 on December 3, 2018 |

The other day this lovely card came in the mail from former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn. I felt quite honored, even though I knew the same card had probably been sent to hundreds of other people, with the same message. Yes, of course, the card came with a request to donate to […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 26, 2018 |

My Thanksgiving week was pretty terrific. My son, Mike, and his family came up from Austin for a few days, so I got to spend some good times with them. Then on Thanksgiving day, another son joined us for the day and we ate a great meal that my daughter-in-law prepared. Yeah Corina. The next […]

And the fun begins! Heading toward Thanksgiving here in the States many of us are knee-deep in preparations for company and for the day of celebrating. That is true for me, too. I’m going to have my first gathering for the holiday here in my new house, so I am working toward having the house […]

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 […]

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. I spent the day Saturday back in Winnsboro to visit with some friends, and we were completely disconnected from the […]

Monday Musings

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 […]

All About Dogs

Posted by mcm0704 on October 15, 2018 |

First I want to share this picture of a flower that just opened in a small bouquet I have in my kitchen. The bouquet is from periwinkles I have planted in the front of my house, and I’ve enjoyed bringing some of the color into the kitchen, especially when the buds open to such lovely […]
