Well, my family and I got through the Thanksgiving Holiday, each of us celebrating as best we could. There was so much talk on our Zoom gathering, and in texts back and forth, about pumpkin pie and how some of us were suffering from pie depravation that one of my sons came to my house […]

Day Before Thanksgiving

Posted by mcm0704 on November 18, 2020 |

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. That is if you think in terms of calendar corners, since we just have one weekend to go then Turkey Day will be here. The  holiday will be very different this year, thanks to COVID19, and families may not be gathering like in the past. As for my family, […]

Apologies and Jokes

Posted by mcm0704 on November 25, 2017 |

Perhaps it was the holiday, or perhaps it was because the server was down, and I did not know it because of the holiday, the website was nonfunctional for several days. My apologies for not seeing it right away, but all is well now. I do hope that all my U.S. friends and family had […]

How do You Like Your Gourd Prepared?

Posted by mcm0704 on December 15, 2014 |

You may have noticed I’m a bit late – okay, a lot late – with my Monday blog post. I went to the memorial service for a good friend this morning and then out to lunch with other friends, and we celebrated the friendships we have and the friendship we just lost. Bittersweet moments. Anyway, […]
