Fly Fishing And Writing

Posted by mcm0704 on April 24, 2019 |

Before moving on to Slim Randles guest post for today, I want to share this photo I took the other day. Sometimes the pictures just turn out perfect. Not because of any great expertise on my part, however. I think it’s just luck. I took several shots of this gathering of wildflowers from different angles, […]

Monday Morning Musings – Going Pink

Posted by mcm0704 on October 5, 2015 |

First I want to share a  few pictures of the Texas sky I took recently. I do love the many cloud formations that I can see early in the morning and at sunset.

Let’s all be Mellow

I thought after slamming HOAs and talking about road rage, it would be a good idea to focus on something pretty and relaxing. In Texas we have some of the most spectacular cloud formations I have ever seen. And the sky can go on forever, giving this amazing “postcard” view of the clouds. At sunrise […]

Spring is busting out all over

Posted by mcm0704 on March 15, 2010 |

One of my favorite things to see in the spring is all the wild, and not so wild, daffodils as they start popping up. Here in East Texas they grow wild along the roadways, but they are also popular flowers for home landscaping. They come up before the grass starts to grow so they can […]

The Party’s Over

Posted by mcm0704 on July 7, 2009 |

The last of my company left today, so now I have no more excuses for not working. Darn. I sure was enjoying myself. I guess that is one reason that I like having my birthday on the Fourth of July. I was playing the “It’s my birthday” card all weekend until one of our sons […]
