Absurdities Abound

Posted by mcm0704 on May 24, 2019 |

Before writing about the absurd deals that were made between our erstwhile leader here in the United States and the German financial institution, Deutsche Bank, I thought it would be nice to share a few pictures from my little corner of the world. This dog greets me and my dog every morning when we’re walking. […]

So, John Bolton is trying to affect a regime change in Iran through the use of the sanctions that disrupt the economy, causing a financial crisis and spurring mass protests across the country that will topple the current rulers. (You can listen to a report about this on The Daily from The New York Times) Is […]

The e-book is still on pre-order, awaiting the final digital formatting, and it will be sent to Kindles all over the place on May […]

Literature and History

Posted by mcm0704 on April 12, 2019 |

I’ve been taking a series of classes at Grayson Community College through their Center for Workplace Learning. The program is called T.E.A.M.S – Texoma’s Educationally Active Mature Seniors. I qualify on one count because I’m over 60, but some people might question my maturity. LOL Anyway, the first classes have been on literature, movies and […]

Politics, Cats and Jokes

Posted by mcm0704 on March 8, 2019 |

On my morning walk I saw some other flowers that survived the recent cold-snap here in North Texas. I think this is an Azalea bush, but it is different from any other bushes I’ve seen. If you look closely you can see my dog, Dusty. I didn’t know he was in the picture until I […]

Cats And Egos And Power Struggles

Posted by mcm0704 on February 11, 2019 |

Every late winter/early spring I used to pull the first new grass for my horse as the fresh green blades were so good for helping him to shed his winter coat. Now I pull the grass for my cats. Outdoor cats can nibble on grass whenever the urge strikes them, but since mine are indoor […]

Who To Trust

Posted by mcm0704 on February 4, 2019 |

It is hard to believe, but after the deep freeze of last week, temperatures are rising to a balmy 47 degrees in Detroit and Chicago. Much of the Dakotas and Minnesota are still hovering near or just below zero, but according to my friend in South Dakota, that is a warm spell. Here in my […]

The Great Divide

Posted by mcm0704 on January 25, 2019 |

The little blue flowers in that picture were popping up in a field behind my house. I took the picture on a warm day last week. They must have liked the sunshine. I wish there was more sunshine in the halls of government these days. I, like so many others, am so tired of the […]

I Share the Dream

Posted by mcm0704 on January 21, 2019 |

Today we honor a man who was the face of the civil rights movement from 1954 to 1968 when he was assassinated in 1968. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who advanced civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience. That approach was borne out of his his Christian beliefs and […]

Government Shutdown

Posted by mcm0704 on January 14, 2019 |

The area around my house in the city is not particularly scenic. Many of the houses are very old and run down, and a number of them have lots of junk in the yards. Still, I manage to find some pretty things to photograph. There are a few of these bushes with the bright red […]
