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 […]

Understanding Impeachment #Mondayblogs

Posted by mcm0704 on September 30, 2019 |

Good Monday morning. I do hope everyone had a good weekend.  Yesterday I was able to get some writing done and then worked on the quilt I’m making for myself. The centerpiece is a t-shirt from the town where one of my sister’s lives. The blue piece is from a shirt that my mother used […]

Monday Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 23, 2019 |

So how was your weekend? I spent most of mine at the Art Fest, which is an annual event here in Sherman.  Every year, the Sherman Art League has a program connected to the festival in which there is a juried art show. I’d never participated in that type of show before, and one of […]

It’s been a crazy few days for me, so things are all out of order regarding my usual blog pattern. Slim Randles is my guest today with a thoughtful essay about September and the move from Summer to Autumn and what that means for country folks. And other folks, too.  He might be back on […]

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 […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on July 15, 2019 |

For my vacation this year, I spent a week with my sister and her family in Lake City, Michigan. They always camp by the lake over the Fourth of July holiday, and I’ve only been there once before for my birthday. Lake Missaukee isn’t a very big lake compared to the others in and around […]

Slim Randles is today’s guest with a reminder of what a cool summer evening can feel like. Sometimes we are blessed with the most perfect weather. We had one of those nice evenings here the other day and I took my dog for a long walk. I cut some flowers and he waited patiently for […]

Posted by mcm0704 on June 24, 2019 |

Last Friday I was at the Winnsboro Center for The Arts for a special production following the Maryann Miller Beginner Drama Camp. It was great fun to be there, and the kids did a wonderful job putting on a performance that was an adaptation of the book, The Great Kapok Tree; A Tale of the […]
