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 […]

Contests, Giveaways and Friends

Posted by mcm0704 on November 8, 2017 |

Here’s another fun hunting story from Slim Randles. These are almost as good as “the one that got away” stories. And what would we do without friends to help us out when we need an extra hand? I am sure appreciating my friends a lot in this moving process. It has gotten a bit nippy […]

Are You A Hunter?

Fall is the time for hunting for a lot of people – birds, deer and other game. Many hunters do it to help feed their families, but some do it just for sport. Slim Randles is here with a story of one man who does hunt for food, but may not always shoot. Join me […]

My Halloween Treat

Posted by mcm0704 on October 31, 2017 |

Today I can wish folks a happy Halloween for real. It is also the last day I can wear my Halloween socks, which is a good thing as I wore them all week, and they really need to go to the laundry basket. Even the dog avoids my feet. But aren’t they cute. I felt like a […]

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 […]

Writing Tips

Posted by mcm0704 on March 10, 2017 |

First this cute meme to start us off with a smile: I had a busy week, interspersed with bouts of pain that had me away from my computer for large amounts of time, so I thought I would offer some writing advice from Kristen Lamb on the blog today. I enjoy her posts on all […]

Racism & Civil Rights

Posted by mcm0704 on January 16, 2017 |

When I was active in the Civil Rights Movement in the early 60s, I was so sure that by the time the year 2000 rolled around, there would be no need for activist groups to still be fighting for equality. Sigh… While things are certainly better on many levels than they were back then, we […]

A Criminal Mind

Posted by mcm0704 on January 13, 2017 |

First Some Fun to Get Friday Started This morning I was listening to This is Criminal, a podcast that has fascinating accounts of criminal cases. Well, fascinating to someone like me who has always been intrigued by murder and mayhem and the people who seem to do that with impunity, which is why I write about those […]

Contest and Book Exerpt

Posted by mcm0704 on December 5, 2016 |

First off, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I spent Saturday at an art festival, the proceeds benefiting the Holly Lake Ranch Volunteer Fire Department. The downside of the event was that it rained all day long. It was cold and damp, but quite a few people braved the weather to come out and […]
