Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on April 8, 2019 |

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, […]

Is Constant Optimism Healthy?

Posted by mcm0704 on April 5, 2019 |

Wildflowers have been blooming all over East Texas, and these little white ones have been popping up since late January. Now unmowed yards are full of them, and I’m glad that some folks haven’t cranked up the old mower yet this Spring. Author Kristen Lamb writes a terrific blog, offering advice, humor, and inspiration to […]

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 […]

Posted by mcm0704 on March 29, 2019 |

It was five years ago yesterday that my mother, Evelyn, died, and it will be four years ago in June that I started writing the book that has become, Evelyn Evolving. It took almost three years of writing and rewriting to get the story right, then another year for the book to find a publisher. […]

Another Tragedy in Florida

Posted by mcm0704 on March 25, 2019 |

While most people might be focused on the Mueller Investigation and the results, I want to look at something else making headlines: Sad news from Parkland, Florida, where two young people have committed suicide. On Saturday, a sophomore boy at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, committed suicide, making that the second suicide […]

Who First Owned Louisiana?

Posted by mcm0704 on March 22, 2019 |

This has been a busy week at my house. Lots of company has come over to all contribute to the beautification of my back and side yard. Here is a picture of what was done to the side where no grass would grow because of shade and my dog made a terrific muddy path. Thanks […]

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 […]

Politics, Cats and Jokes

Posted by mcm0704 on March 8, 2019 |

On my morning walk I saw some other flowers that survived the recent cold-snap here in North Texas. I think this is an Azalea bush, but it is different from any other bushes I’ve seen. If you look closely you can see my dog, Dusty. I didn’t know he was in the picture until I […]

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 […]

Service Dogs Never Stop Serving

Posted by mcm0704 on February 8, 2019 |

I’m going to be in Dallas today getting nerve ablations that will hopefully ease some of the pain on my face and head and get me off some of my meds. In addition to Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, I suffer from a condition known as CRS (can’t remember shit.) Many people on high doses of nerve-blockers […]
