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 […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on October 17, 2016 |

Those of you who have read my books know that I often write about social issues, drugs and violence and racism. I explored aspects of racism, especially as it applies to the interactions of police officers with people of color in my Seasons Mystery Series that debuted with Open Season. However, I barely scratched the […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on October 7, 2016 |

Earlier this week I received a phone call from my niece, Pat, telling me that her father had died a few weeks ago. Somehow in the confusion of the sudden death there was a mix-up in the phone calls, and I was not notified at the time. George Watson was married to my husband’s sister, Mary, […]

Resolutions? Goals? Or Hopes?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 6, 2016 |

 While I may change up some things on the blog this year, Wednesday’s will still be devoted to guests, whether that be an author interview or a guest post. As always, I love that humorist Slim Randles continues to share his wit and wisdom with us. Grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy… […]

Ends and Beginnings

Posted by mcm0704 on December 31, 2015 |

Wishing You a Happy New Year Be Happy, Be Healthy, and Be Safe   This last day of the year is always one for reflecting on the past twelve months to see what was good and what wasn’t so good. On the world front, there were many not-so-good moments; mass killings, terrorist attacks, refugees without […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 17, 2015 |

I read in the newspaper that the Texas Department of Transportation recently gave workers a raise. I thought that was quite nice until I noted that the top tier of managers got up to a 17% raise, while those in the trenches only got a small raise. Just another example of those who do the […]
