Posted by mcm0704 on May 25, 2020 |

First, I want to take a moment to remember and honor those who fought for the freedoms we enjoy here in the United States. There will be few gatherings or picnics or barbecues today, and my anger toward the Corona Virus that has impacted our lives in so many ways is growing. People should be […]

Monday Morning Musing

Today, I’m thinking about the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” “Come Monday It’ll be all right, Come Monday I’ll be holding you tight. I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze And I just want you back by my side.” I used to be able to do a fair rendition of the song […]

More Cat Facts

Posted by mcm0704 on January 7, 2019 |

Those little kitties were a gift from my daughter-in-law, Wei, and I thought they might like to hang out around the barn. Now some of the cat facts, again borrowed from LitterRobot. 1. Research suggests that a cat’s purr has the power to self-heal. One of the most precious cat facts we’ve learned: The purr […]

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 […]

This past Saturday was the launch party for the new book, Reflections of Winnsboro, that I helped our Winnsboro historian, Bill Jones, write. We had a grand time, and it was so much fun for me to listen to Bill visit with his many long-time friends who came to help celebrate. We received lots of […]

Special Wednesday’s Guest

Posted by mcm0704 on September 10, 2014 |

On this, the eve of remembering 9/11, I thought it appropriate to have a special guest today, Major Heather Penny. I read about this amazing woman last Sunday in Parade Magazine. In 2001 she was an F-16 pilot with the 121st Fighter Squadron of the D.C. Air National Guard at Andrews Air Force Base in […]

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 […]
