Who Can be President?

Posted by mcm0704 on March 9, 2020 |

Today is a rant day. I didn’t mean to. I didn’t plan to. I just listened to one too many political podcasts and said, “Enough.” So, I decided to write an open letter to the Federal Government, State Governments, the DNC and the GOP. But before we get into the dismal stuff, I thought you […]

A Message of Hope

Posted by mcm0704 on February 10, 2020 |

The following was taken from a letter that I, along with many others, recently received from Beto O’Rourke. It lays out many of my reactions to recent events as I try valiantly to cling to my faith in America and our government. I won’t publish the entire letter as it is very long, but I’ll […]

The Rapture? A War? None of the Above?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 10, 2020 |

Whew! we’ve dodged a bullet. At least for now. The news over the weekend, and through much of this week, has been full of reports about the killing of Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian Major General in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. He was  commander of its Quds Force, a division primarily responsible for military and […]

Understanding Impeachment #Mondayblogs

Posted by mcm0704 on September 30, 2019 |

Good Monday morning. I do hope everyone had a good weekend.  Yesterday I was able to get some writing done and then worked on the quilt I’m making for myself. The centerpiece is a t-shirt from the town where one of my sister’s lives. The blue piece is from a shirt that my mother used […]

Monday Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 23, 2019 |

So how was your weekend? I spent most of mine at the Art Fest, which is an annual event here in Sherman.  Every year, the Sherman Art League has a program connected to the festival in which there is a juried art show. I’d never participated in that type of show before, and one of […]

Trump vs California

Posted by mcm0704 on September 20, 2019 |

  One of the stories on a recent episode of the NPR daily podcast, Up First, was about the standoff between President Trump and the state of California. California wants to be able to maintain their own standards of emissions that are higher than other states, and their right to do so has been approved […]

Mass Shootings – Mass Hatred

Posted by mcm0704 on August 5, 2019 |

My Heart is Heavy Today I thought my weekend was horrible because I spent Friday in ER with head pain that had gotten out of control. But the pain that lingers is nothing compared to the pain of the families who lost loved ones in the two mass shootings on Saturday. Nor does it begin […]

All-American Names

Posted by mcm0704 on July 31, 2019 |

Did you listen to the Democratic Presidential Candidates Debate last night? I did not, even though I’m very interested in what the candidates stand for. The problem with so many debates is that they turn into attacks on the other candidates, and that is not what a true debate is supposed to be.  So, I […]

Political Absurdity

Posted by mcm0704 on June 14, 2019 |

This crate is supposed to offer Dusty a safe place to get away from the cats. He’s outnumbered four to one, but sometimes it isn’t always the safest place. Luckily, Harry is the one cat who really seems to like Dusty, and he often tries to buddy up to the dog. Perhaps you’re already aware […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on June 10, 2019 |

Before I left my daughter’s home in Missouri last week, she gave me a cutting from a plant in her yard. I don’t remember what the plant is called, but it loves sun and I put it in a place on my front porch that gets a lot of light. The smaller, darker green leaves […]
