Autumn in the Air

Posted by mcm0704 on September 14, 2020 |

Autumn is beginning to show itself in cooler nights and a few gold and red leaves starting to drift from nearby trees. I love Autumn. Maybe because the worst of the Texas heat is gone for another year. Hopefully no 100+ days in the forecast until next July, but also because of the bold colors. […]

Friday’s Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on August 28, 2020 |

I’m going to do something different this Friday for my blog post. Partially because Mr Ramsay Hunt is kicking my butt big time this week, and the meds I take to control the pain from trigeminal neuralgia make my brain really foggy.  Image courtesy of The Empaths’s Guide to Becoming Worth a Damn Also, I […]

Of Books and Racism

Posted by mcm0704 on August 10, 2020 |

Last week I was busy plotting a new book. When I finished Desperate Season, the third book in the Seasons Mystery Series, I thought about making that the last book, so I tied up a few of the subplots. Well, sort of. It was more like making suggestions as to how some things would go […]
