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 […]

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 […]

The Killing Just Goes On And On

Posted by mcm0704 on September 2, 2019 |

I wasn’t going to post anything on the blog today. My heart was just too heavy after hearing of yet another mass shooting over the weekend, and I turned my attention to creative things that would lift my spirits. But then this letter from Beto O’Rourke popped up in my mailbox a few minutes ago […]

Mass Shootings – Mass Hatred

Posted by mcm0704 on August 5, 2019 |

My Heart is Heavy Today I thought my weekend was horrible because I spent Friday in ER with head pain that had gotten out of control. But the pain that lingers is nothing compared to the pain of the families who lost loved ones in the two mass shootings on Saturday. Nor does it begin […]
