Please help me welcome Eleanor Kuhns as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. She is the author of a mystery series featuring Will Rees, a travelling weaver in the late 1700s who gets caught up in murders and becomes a first-rate investigator.

Celebrating Love

Posted by mcm0704 on February 13, 2019 |

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY   It’s a day early, I know, but I wanted to send the wish out anyway. Will you be doing anything special to mark the day? I may let the day pass without much attention, as celebrating without the person you loved for many years is so hard. I know I am […]

A Conversation With Windy

Posted by mcm0704 on February 5, 2019 |

Slim Randles is here today with his friend, Windy, who likes to fracture the English language like nobody else. I admire the guys at the Mule Barn Truck Stop who can follow the conversation with Windy and reply with hardly a moment’s hesitation. More power to them.  Let’s join the guys with a cup of […]

Word of the Day

Posted by mcm0704 on January 30, 2019 |

The government is up and running. tRump has accepted Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to give the State of the Union Address on February 5. I finally worked through a major plot tangle in my current WIP. All is well with the world.  WIP, for all you non-writers out there, means work in progress, and I have […]

We are back at the Mule Barn Truck Stop today with some of the guys who call that their second home. Join Doc and Dud as they have a little fun with Steve, proving you are never too old to let your inner child out.  This story reminds me of the good times I had […]

Now And Then

Posted by mcm0704 on January 16, 2019 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a fun story about Clarice and Mr. Gavin. Some of the best stories are told in beauty shops and barber shops. And, of course, the Mule Barn Truck Stop where the gang hangs out. I’m thinking we could have something sweet to go along with our […]

The Poignancy of Death

Posted by mcm0704 on January 9, 2019 |

Slim Randles is here today with a somewhat sobering blog post about death. That isn’t a topic that most of us like to talk about, or read about, or even think about too much. But in my years of knowing some pretty amazing country folks, I’ve come to understand that they are somewhat more pragmatic […]

When Home is Home

Posted by mcm0704 on January 2, 2019 |

Slim Randles is here as the first Wednesday’s Guest of 2019, and today he shares a thoughtful piece about place, more specifically our “place.” Slim is obviously very comfortable in his place. Are we? How often do we stop and take stock of what makes where we live our home?  The end of this month […]

Gifts and Giving

Slim Randles is here today with a story to warm your heart as we get closer to Christmas. My anticipation of the holiday has as much to do with kindness and touching moments like these as it does presents and parties. Enjoy… And have a cookie or two. Mabel Adams was sitting in the day […]

Down a Slippery Slope

Posted by mcm0704 on December 12, 2018 |

Slim Randles is here today with a story from Marvin’s point of view. Marvin is one of the guys from the gang at the Mule Barn Truck Stop who we don’t hear about as much as the others, but when Marvin speaks, it’s always with a depth of wisdom, touched with sardonic wit.   Since we’re […]
