Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 3, 2015 |

All the flap about the Confederate Flag and other symbols of the time in our history that condoned slavery, makes me wonder just how far are we going to go to the extreme in dodging sensitivity. That era was not one of our more honorable ones. Neither was the time that we pushed the Native […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on February 13, 2015 |

I was alarmed and dismayed when I heard about the three young people killed in North Carolina this past week. Deah Barakat, 23; his wife of a little more than six weeks, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, 21; and her sister, Razan, 19 — were shot and killed at a housing complex near the University of North […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on August 25, 2014 |

In keeping with my theme of celebrating strong women, I want to acknowledge the birthday of Althea Gibson. An American tennis player and professional golfer, she was born in South Carolina on August 25, 1927 and was the first black athlete of either gender to cross the color line of international tennis. In 1956 she […]

Today I thought we’d just have some fun here on the blog. I did not watch the news at all over the weekend, although I did buy a newspaper on Sunday, but I only read the comics. Usually I read the editorials as well, but never got past the funny papers yesterday. Several of the […]

It seems the very cold winter we’ve been having has frazzled the nerves of lots of people across the country. I snagged this quote from Becky Lewellen Povich’s blog and just had to share it. In commiserating with a friend here in Texas about our cold weather, I told her I couldn’t wait for summer, […]

Friendship Deep and True

Posted by mcm0704 on November 8, 2013 |

Just a short blog today. I have company, so I have been away from my computer and the Internet quite a bit this week. My friend, Jan, is visiting from South Dakota, and we have not seen each other for twelve years – lots to catch up on. We have been friends since we were […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on January 16, 2012 |

Even with the convenience of getting news online or on TV 24/7, I still like to read a newspaper. Maybe I have a special affinity because of all the years I worked for newspapers. Perhaps. Anyway, one of my favorite things to do on Sundays is read The Dallas Morning News. After scanning the headlines […]
