Friday, I drove to Winnsboro to spend some time with my friend, Becky Pickett, play cards that evening with a few other Winnsboro friends, and get ready for Saturday, which was the Second Annual Festival of Books, hosted by the Winnsboro Center For the […]

Before moving on, here is a picture of some of my pansies that survived the recent cold spell. The beauty of flowers has always given me reason to smile, and to hope, which is sorely needed after the weekend news.

The Bane of Daylight Saving Time

Posted by mcm0704 on March 11, 2019 |

The other day I came across this lone daffodil brightening an otherwise drab little field. No other flowers were around, and I smiled at the courage it had to pop it’s pretty little head up without any friends nearby. Raise your hand if you agree that we should stop messing with all the clocks twice […]

Cats And Egos And Power Struggles

Posted by mcm0704 on February 11, 2019 |

Every late winter/early spring I used to pull the first new grass for my horse as the fresh green blades were so good for helping him to shed his winter coat. Now I pull the grass for my cats. Outdoor cats can nibble on grass whenever the urge strikes them, but since mine are indoor […]
