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 […]

Sweet Summer Nights

Posted by mcm0704 on July 1, 2019 |

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 […]

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 […]

Words of Wisdom for Graduates

Posted by mcm0704 on June 17, 2019 |

As a special treat today, I have Slim Randles with a fun post about graduation and graduation speakers. Enjoy… When we filtered in for coffee at the Mule Barn truck stop, we were surprised to see Jim Albertson already there, already drinking coffee and looking as though he lost his last friend. It’s so unlike […]

Before I left my daughter’s home in Missouri last week, she gave me a cutting from a plant in her yard. I don’t remember what the plant is called, but it loves sun and I put it in a place on my front porch that gets a lot of light. The smaller, darker green leaves […]

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 […]

So, John Bolton is trying to affect a regime change in Iran through the use of the sanctions that disrupt the economy, causing a financial crisis and spurring mass protests across the country that will topple the current rulers. (You can listen to a report about this on The Daily from The New York Times) Is […]

Monday Morning Musing

On my morning walk, I saw this little blue flower peeking out from a tangle of brush in an empty lot. Getting a good shot was a bit of a challenge as it was fairly deep in the tangle, but I managed and was pleased with the result. As a professional photographer once told me, […]

No April Fools’ Day Jokes

Posted by mcm0704 on April 1, 2019 |

What do you do when you haven’t a single idea of what to write about and it’s time for a blog post? When I was writing my weekly humor column for the Plano Star Courier, I often wondered what I’d do if I ran out of material and was just blank two days before my […]
