When Will We Ever Learn?

Posted by mcm0704 on March 18, 2019 |

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. You are probably already aware of the mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New […]

Dogs And A #FridayRead

Posted by mcm0704 on January 18, 2019 |

It’s taken my dog, Dusty, a long time to feel comfortable enough in the house to play, but he finally decided the other day that it was okay to chase this toy. Some of his reticence might be due to how the cat, Sammy, terrorizes him, but some of it is due to the fact […]

Inauguration Day, Monkeys & More

Posted by mcm0704 on January 20, 2017 |

For the first time in as long as I can remember, I will not be watching any of the Inauguration ceremony or the celebrations. First off, because I have no local television or cable, having cancelled both several months ago. I know I could stream live coverage on my computer or tablet, but I don’t […]

It’s a Street Party

Posted by mcm0704 on December 29, 2016 |

The week between the holidays gets a bit chaotic for many people, myself included, so I am letting Slim Randles entertain you today with an essay.

I guess because I’m on […]

Posted by mcm0704 on October 7, 2016 |

Earlier this week I received a phone call from my niece, Pat, telling me that her father had died a few weeks ago. Somehow in the confusion of the sudden death there was a mix-up in the phone calls, and I was not notified at the time. George Watson was married to my husband’s sister, Mary, […]
