Loving The Snow

Posted by mcm0704 on January 28, 2019 |

It’s been pretty cold around the country, even here in Texas, so let’s share a hot cup of cocoa to warm us up. Not the same one, of course. Since this is a virtual cup, it can replicate. Enjoy… The other day, a friend sent me a wonderful story about appreciating snow days – those […]

Winter Wonderland

Posted by mcm0704 on December 28, 2017 |

You can complain about the cold, wintery weather, or you can go out and enjoy it as Doc suggests in this post by Slim Randles. Doc is one of the more positive-thinking members of the Mule Barn Think Tank, as he tries to keep the other guys focused on the good things in life. It […]

Fridays Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on February 27, 2015 |

For some of us, the good news is that President Obama has vetoed the bill that Congress passed to approve the XL Pipeline. Those in favor of the pipeline are not so happy. And more delays to the pipeline that would bring tar-sands oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast are coming from Nebraska. On […]

Snow is More Than Just a Storm

Posted by mcm0704 on February 11, 2015 |

I’m over at The Blood-Red Pencil blog today having some fun with Valentine’s Day jokes, so if you need a laugh, hop on over. But do stay here long enough to read this wonderful essay by my Wednesday’s Guest today, Slim Randles.  I enjoy his stories so much and especially loved this essay about snow. […]

The Value of Play

Posted by mcm0704 on January 7, 2015 |

Please welcome Slim Randles as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. He’s here so often he could be called a regular, but Wednesday’s Regular doesn’t have the same rhythm as Wednesday’s Guest, and in my estimation, writing is all about rhythm. I love this essay because I do love to play in the snow, and I miss it […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on November 14, 2014 |

Here we are at day 3 of the Arctic Blast that is affecting much of the United States. The way the media is going crazy with reports you would think we never had winter before. Granted, winter does not usually come this early. I can’t remember freezing temperatures before December here in Texas, but then […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on March 3, 2014 |

As I saw the clock winding down to noon, I thought of the song, “Monday Morning Coming Down.” That was a classic from Johnny Cash, so I thought I would share that video with you. I was gone over the weekend to the art fair in Killeen, Texas, and came home to an ice storm […]

Record Snowfall in Texas

Posted by mcm0704 on February 12, 2010 |

The winter storm that blanketed much of North and East Texas in snow overnight Thursday surprised even forecasters. After watching the latest weather report Thursday at about 10, I went to bed expecting to wake up to three or four inches of snow. Then in the middle of the night I heard the ominous sound […]
