The Poignancy of Death

Posted by mcm0704 on January 9, 2019 |

Slim Randles is here today with a somewhat sobering blog post about death. That isn’t a topic that most of us like to talk about, or read about, or even think about too much. But in my years of knowing some pretty amazing country folks, I’ve come to understand that they are somewhat more pragmatic […]

When Home is Home

Posted by mcm0704 on January 2, 2019 |

Slim Randles is here as the first Wednesday’s Guest of 2019, and today he shares a thoughtful piece about place, more specifically our “place.” Slim is obviously very comfortable in his place. Are we? How often do we stop and take stock of what makes where we live our home?  The end of this month […]

Posted by mcm0704 on December 19, 2018 |

Slim Randles is here today with a story to warm your heart as we get closer to Christmas. My anticipation of the holiday has as much to do with kindness and touching moments like these as it does presents and parties. Enjoy… And have a cookie or two. Mabel Adams was sitting in the day […]

Down a Slippery Slope

Posted by mcm0704 on December 12, 2018 |

Slim Randles is here today with a story from Marvin’s point of view. Marvin is one of the guys from the gang at the Mule Barn Truck Stop who we don’t hear about as much as the others, but when Marvin speaks, it’s always with a depth of wisdom, touched with sardonic wit.   Since we’re […]

Windy’s Gonna be Rich

Posted by mcm0704 on December 5, 2018 |

Slim Randles is today’s Wednesday’s guest with the latest from Windy, who has never found a word he didn’t like to mangle. Still, the guys at the Mule Bar Truck Stop like to keep him around. It’s always good to have some comic relief. It is pretty cold here in Texas today, and it was […]

Fun With Windy

Posted by mcm0704 on November 28, 2018 |

Before moving on to Slim’s story about Windy, I want to share this picture. It’s the first grandchild coloring to grace the front of my refrigerator in my new home, and it was done by my granddaughter Becky who is in college, which proves you can color at any age. BTW, I hate to admit […]

Thanksgiving Blessings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 21, 2018 |

HAPPY THANKSGIVING  Sending out good wishes to everyone who celebrates this day of gratefulness. I hope you have much to celebrate. It always seems a little trite, and almost a cliche, to say one is most thankful for family, but I am. I have the most amazing children, grandchildren and extended family, and that was […]

Honoring The Military

Posted by mcm0704 on November 12, 2018 |

It’s Veteran’s Day, a day to honor all the men and women who have served in the military throughout the years. Each year as this date rolls around, I think about all the men buried in a little cemetery in West Virginia, members of my father’s family who served in every war since the Spanish […]

Mid-Week #Humor From Slim Randles

Posted by mcm0704 on November 7, 2018 |

Got a late start with the blog today. Went to a Yoga class this morning, then hung around the senior center to have lunch with some friends. Yes, I am old enough to hang around a senior center. 🙂 While not all the election results made me happy, I was excited to see so many […]
