Early Thanksgiving Treat

Posted by mcm0704 on November 15, 2017 |

Looking ahead to next week, it is not too soon to have a fun Thanksgiving story from Slim Randles. It’s also not too soon to start testing the pumpkin pies. In my mind, there are never too many pumpkin pies. Help yourself.   Steve will have Thanksgiving dinner over at Doc’s and Mrs. Doc’s this […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 13, 2017 |

I have had a long love affair with trees. It started when I was a child and would climb the large Elm in my backyard. Sometimes to read. Other times to just sit and be away from everything and everybody else. Often it was a refuge. And I was devastated when the people who bought […]

Happy birthday to me and Happy birthday, U.S.A.  Company is slowly drifting in to help me celebrate my birthday, and it is always great fun to have some of my kids here with me. I know it is a day early for a Fourth Of July blog post, but bear with me. I plan to […]

Special Picnics

Posted by mcm0704 on June 7, 2017 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a thoughtful piece about shyness and friendships. We have all had moments of being extremely shy – well some of us – and maybe feeling so awkward that we could hardly say a word. But maybe not to the extreme of Richard. I hope you enjoy […]

Solving World Problems

Posted by mcm0704 on May 31, 2017 |

Slim Randles is here again as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a fun essay about men and horses and the benefits of pairing up. I have long known the benefits of pairing up with horses. I’ve had three in my lifetime, and below is a picture of my current horse, Banjo. I have had him now for close […]

Quilting Could Take Years

Posted by mcm0704 on May 24, 2017 |

How absolutely horrid that terrorists chose a family-friendly site to enact another bombing that took so many lives and injured so many more. Not that any site is better than the other, but there is something very tragic in the loss of lives that include children. And what did the Manchester bombing accomplish for the […]

Farmers Never Stop

Posted by mcm0704 on May 3, 2017 |

I have another guest post from Slim Randles for today, but first I wanted to share this information I received from the Texas Commission on the Arts. Because so many parts of the country have been affected by the recent storms – and the spring storm season is not over – I thought this would be […]

Book Review – Raylan by Elmore Leonard

Posted by mcm0704 on November 27, 2016 |

Since I have not read a book for review this week, I’m re-posting a blog piece from 2013.  I thought I would try something different this week. Thanks to a tip from Kristen Lamb, an awesome lady who gives advice to writers on her blog, I found out about a different approach to blog sharing. […]

Monday Morning Surprise

Posted by mcm0704 on November 21, 2016 |

I have a surprise guest today. I know, it isn’t Wednesday, but Slim Randles is already scheduled for Wednesday, so I thought I’d introduce you to a fantastic singer.  First I have to say I had not heard of Heather Schmid until I received an e-mail from her publicity folks. I guess because I’m on […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 14, 2016 |

It’s going to be a short blog today as I had a busy weekend, and I still don’t want to watch the news or even read news items online. There is so much disinformation in the media today, that I find it very disheartening. I also find some of the reactions – from both sides […]
