America In Chaos

Posted by mcm0704 on January 8, 2021 |

America Weeps   There’s a hashtag on Twitter that is gaining momentum, #countrybeforeparty, and I hope it continues. The behavior of our current president, as well as the horrible assault on the Capitol Building on January 6th, is a sad indicator of just how low some people will sink to wield their power. It also […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on August 3, 2020 |

I had a really pleasant few days last week. One of my sons came on Monday and stayed until Saturday morning to help me with chores around the house. Since he doesn’t live as close as some of his sibs – he’s in Austin with his family, and I’m near Dallas – he wanted to […]

Politics – At What Cost

Posted by mcm0704 on July 24, 2020 |

This image has nothing to do with my post today, I just thought it would be nice to start off seeing something pretty. This flower just bloomed on a plant at the side of my driveway that I suspected was not a weed when I was clearing along the fence. I’m glad I left it […]

Friday Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on April 17, 2020 |

Happy Friday everyone. I hope it is a good day for you. It’s warming up again here in Texas after a bit of a cold snap on Tuesday and Wednesday. For those couple of days, temperatures were in the mid-thirties at night, and I thought I might have to cover my plants again. Luckily, it […]

Who Can be President?

Posted by mcm0704 on March 9, 2020 |

Today is a rant day. I didn’t mean to. I didn’t plan to. I just listened to one too many political podcasts and said, “Enough.” So, I decided to write an open letter to the Federal Government, State Governments, the DNC and the GOP. But before we get into the dismal stuff, I thought you […]

A Message of Hope

Posted by mcm0704 on February 10, 2020 |

The following was taken from a letter that I, along with many others, recently received from Beto O’Rourke. It lays out many of my reactions to recent events as I try valiantly to cling to my faith in America and our government. I won’t publish the entire letter as it is very long, but I’ll […]

The Rapture? A War? None of the Above?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 10, 2020 |

Whew! we’ve dodged a bullet. At least for now. The news over the weekend, and through much of this week, has been full of reports about the killing of Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian Major General in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. He was  commander of its Quds Force, a division primarily responsible for military and […]

Understanding Impeachment #Mondayblogs

Posted by mcm0704 on September 30, 2019 |

Good Monday morning. I do hope everyone had a good weekend.  Yesterday I was able to get some writing done and then worked on the quilt I’m making for myself. The centerpiece is a t-shirt from the town where one of my sister’s lives. The blue piece is from a shirt that my mother used […]

Monday Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 23, 2019 |

So how was your weekend? I spent most of mine at the Art Fest, which is an annual event here in Sherman.  Every year, the Sherman Art League has a program connected to the festival in which there is a juried art show. I’d never participated in that type of show before, and one of […]

Mass Shootings – Mass Hatred

Posted by mcm0704 on August 5, 2019 |

My Heart is Heavy Today I thought my weekend was horrible because I spent Friday in ER with head pain that had gotten out of control. But the pain that lingers is nothing compared to the pain of the families who lost loved ones in the two mass shootings on Saturday. Nor does it begin […]
