On Art And Friendship

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 […]

A to Z Challenge T is for Trail of Tears

Posted by mcm0704 on April 23, 2012 |

At first glance it may appear that I am once again diverging from my nature theme by writing about this sad moment in American history, but bear with me. There are many atrocities involving death and incredible injustices to groups of people that should never be repeated, and the Trail of Tears is one of […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 20, 2012 |

One of the biggest and most magnificent pine trees on our property is dying and has to be cut down. It is close to major power lines, so the electric company will come and take it down. This is another victim of the terrible drought we have had in Texas, and I know it is […]

Getting the Shot

Posted by mcm0704 on September 23, 2009 |

I remember when I used to do PR work and would go out on a photo shoot with a photographer to get pictures for a brochure or annual report, and I was always amazed at how many shots he would take. I was used to the way most of us take family pictures — one […]

More Pretty Pictures

Posted by mcm0704 on September 6, 2009 |

Yesterday morning I was out early just as the sun was coming up. Needed to feed animals and do some trimming around the yard, but couldn’t resist stopping for some pictures first. I couldn’t quite capture the sunrise in all it’s glory. It’s amazing how quickly a scene will change in the few minute it […]

Enjoying the Day

Posted by mcm0704 on August 23, 2009 |

It is a beautiful summer day, and this morning was very cool for Texas in August. I spent the morning outside cleaning the pasture, trimming tall grass along the fence line, and clearing the tall growth around our mailbox. I’m sure our mail carrier will appreciate that the next time she comes by and can […]

Finding Old Friends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 26, 2009 |

I’ve just recently started re-reading some of William Kent Krueger’s books, as well as reading a couple of his newer ones. His books are some that I have enjoyed a lot, but then I’d forget to look for his latest and a few years would go by before I thought of how much I like […]

Easy Does It

Posted by mcm0704 on April 3, 2009 |

Okay, I’m off my high-horse and much more mellow today. It is an absolutely gorgeous day and there is no way I can be strident with such a beautiful view out my office window. The trees are leafing out, and the berry vines are covered in white flowers. Not too long now and I will […]
