Some Things Can’t Wait

Posted by mcm0704 on May 22, 2018 |

Slim Randles is my guest today while I am otherwise preoccupied. I love this story about Marvin and his new fishing rod. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. It’s really starting to warm up here in Texas, so maybe it’s time for some lemonade. Help yourself. It was just one of those […]

A History Lesson from Windy

Posted by mcm0704 on May 11, 2018 |

It’s a busy end of the week and weekend for me, so I am going to let Slim Randles entertain us with another posting from the Mule Barn Truck Stop, but first just a couple of things that are bothering me. I was listening to the confirmation hearing for Gina Haspel to head the CIA, […]

Nothing Like a Good Dog

Posted by mcm0704 on April 25, 2018 |

Slim Randles is my guest today with a touching story about a dog and a man. Billy, the dog, is not a registered therapy dog, but it is obvious he brings great joy and comfort to those he meets on his rounds around town. I can attest to the value of having a dog as […]

Posted by mcm0704 on April 10, 2018 |

Slim Randles is back with an interesting post that made me stop and think about my job and the best part of it. It’s hard to say just one best part, as there are a few things about writing that bring me great satisfaction and make my heart smile.  After you read what Slim has […]

The Price of Progress

Posted by mcm0704 on March 28, 2018 |

Slim Randles is here to entertain us today with another story from the Mule Barn Truck Stop. Is it is just my imagination, or is there a subtle editorial slant to this? I don’t know. Maybe I’ve just been listening to too many POD Save America podcasts, but Del certainly does seem to have a […]

Necessity – The Mother of Invention

Posted by mcm0704 on March 14, 2018 |

Slim Randles is my guest today with a story featuring Windy and one of his hair-brained ideas. Windy, that is, not Slim. The guys down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop sometimes wonder where Windy’s elevator stops. It certainly does not go to the top floor, but you have to love the guy. His approach […]

The Many Faces of Toast

Posted by mcm0704 on February 28, 2018 |

The guys down at Slim Randles’ imaginary diner – or maybe not so imaginary – The Mule Barn Truck Stop, sometimes have way too much time on their hands. Must be the effects of the deep, dark winter when not much happens except cold and darkness and probably lots of snow.  I prefer my coffee in […]
