Conversation Starters

Posted by mcm0704 on May 15, 2019 |

You never know when you’re going to need an interesting topic to chew over when gathered with friends. The guys who go to the Mule Barn Truck Stop on a regular basis are not immune to the need, as evidenced by Bert, and shared here by Slim Randles. I have some cherry pie left from […]

Checking the Speed Limit

Posted by mcm0704 on May 10, 2019 |

This picture of Lily that I took the other day has nothing to do with the subject of this blog post. I just thought it was a nice image to carry into the weekend. And I don’t know if she had been sleeping this way, or just slowly making her way from the top perch […]

Dear Census Bureau

Posted by mcm0704 on May 1, 2019 |

Since journalists, pundits, judges, and government officials are having a heavy debate about the upcoming census and what questions might be on it, I thought it appropriate to share this March 2010 letter that my friend Slim Randles sent to the census bureau back then. In terms of money being wasted and unnecessary questions, not […]

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, […]

Loving The Work

Posted by mcm0704 on April 17, 2019 |

The guys down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop think tank ponder a most important question today, “Do you like the work you do?” While posed with a hint of amusement, that really is an important question for all of us to consider. How many people are ground down in a job they hate just […]

Got a Horse?

Posted by mcm0704 on April 3, 2019 |

Sometimes we all yearn for a simpler life. Okay, maybe you don’t, but there are a lot of us who do, including Steve, one of the guys from the Mule Barn Truck Stop where he hangs out with Slim Randles and friends. I always enjoy spending a bit of time reading the latest from this […]

The Legacy of Trees

Posted by mcm0704 on March 27, 2019 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a touching story about trees and what they represent for the future. As someone who loves trees and laments when any die or are cut down, I really had to smile when I read this short, but meaningful offering from Slim. Sometimes you don’t have to […]

Gettin’ The Irish On

Posted by mcm0704 on March 13, 2019 |

If you’re Irish, and even if you aren’t, you can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day along with everyone else. And if you happen to be in Ireland on the day, well, the celebration can’t get any better. At least that’s what Windy, and probably a lot of other folks think.  Slim Randles is my guest today, […]

We’re All Ready For Spring

Posted by mcm0704 on March 6, 2019 |

After the last week of freezing temperatures here in Northeast Texas, we are ready for spring, as are the guys at the Mule Barn Truck Stop. There’s something about those cold winter days that make our minds go down strange paths. Dud is on a particularly strange one today, as Slim Randles shares with us […]
