Writing a Serial?

Posted by mcm0704 on September 27, 2017 |

Please help me welcome Renee Scattergood as today’s Wednesday’s Guest. She is the author of the fantasy series Shadow Stalker, which I previewed here last Sunday.

In Honor of Autumn

Posted by mcm0704 on September 20, 2017 |

Autumn has always been my favorite season of the year and my sentiments about the season echo what Slim Randles has written.

Come to the Fair

Posted by mcm0704 on September 13, 2017 |

Slim Randles is my Wednesday’s Guest today with a nice piece about the county fair and who wins ribbons and who does not. I love going to fairs, big and small, and I do enjoy seeing what items, and animals, claim the top prizes. I also really enjoy a good funnel cake. In fact, going […]

The Thrill of Racing

Posted by mcm0704 on August 30, 2017 |

Slim Randles is here again as my Wednesday’s Guest with a piece about a day at the races. I’ve enjoyed going to horse races and even had a short – very short – career as an exercise rider for a man who raised thoroughbreds in Michigan. My career was not cut short because I couldn’t […]

Saying Goodbye is Hard

Posted by mcm0704 on August 16, 2017 |

Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with a thoughtful piece about saying goodbye to things and people and pets we love. I almost didn’t post it because it made me cry when I read it. I could have used last week’s Home Country column, which was humorous, but this one fits my state […]

Dreams Don’t Expire

Posted by mcm0704 on August 9, 2017 |

Slim Randles is today’s Wednesday’s Guest with another short essay to make us stop and think a moment. I am never sure which I like more, his humor or his more serious columns, but they are both good, and I am glad that he shares them with us so freely. His Home Country columns are […]

Instead of the usual Wednesday’s Guest post, today I have something to share from a wonderful poet and musician, Joy Harjo A Facebook friend posted the poem about the table the other day, and when I read it, I thought of all of the gatherings at table that I was blessed to be part of […]
