The Great Divide

Posted by mcm0704 on January 25, 2019 |

The little blue flowers in that picture were popping up in a field behind my house. I took the picture on a warm day last week. They must have liked the sunshine. I wish there was more sunshine in the halls of government these days. I, like so many others, am so tired of the […]

Government Shutdown

Posted by mcm0704 on January 14, 2019 |

The area around my house in the city is not particularly scenic. Many of the houses are very old and run down, and a number of them have lots of junk in the yards. Still, I manage to find some pretty things to photograph. There are a few of these bushes with the bright red […]

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 […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 3, 2018 |

Good Monday morning. First I thought I’d share a picture of my dog, Dusty, playing with Harry. They have only been out in the back yard together a few times, and Harry is a bit intimidated by this dog that is much more energetic than Poppy, Harry’s former canine friend, had been. Dusty likes to […]

Disgraceful Helsinki Summit

Posted by mcm0704 on July 20, 2018 |

Before getting into the heart of this blog, I wanted to share a couple of pretty pictures with you. Looking at some of the beauty around us can help us keep the stress levels down. When I go for a walk here in the city where I now live, I don’t see nearly as many […]

On the Brink of War?

Posted by mcm0704 on October 13, 2017 |

Before the heart of this blog post, I’ll share a picture of one of my cats. Hermione is so hard to photograph as she always runs from the camera, I had to snap this one of her basking in the sunlight the other morning. It was a chilly morning here in East Texas, and all the […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on May 22, 2017 |

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 […]
