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 […]

Mid-Week #Humor From Slim Randles

Posted by mcm0704 on November 7, 2018 |

Got a late start with the blog today. Went to a Yoga class this morning, then hung around the senior center to have lunch with some friends. Yes, I am old enough to hang around a senior center. 🙂 While not all the election results made me happy, I was excited to see so many […]

Halloween and the Colors of Fall

Posted by mcm0704 on October 31, 2018 |

Halloween was one of my husband’s favorite holidays, leading up to all the others through December. He loved to sit on the porch swing wrapped in a monks cloak and scare the kids as they came up for treats. I have such fond memories of those days. That said, I find it ever so appropriate […]

Monday Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on October 29, 2018 |

We aren’t seeing many pretty fall colors here in my small town, but I saw this tree in my next-door-neighbor’s yard. It’s the first really bold color I’ve seen. I’m hoping there will be more. I spent the day Saturday back in Winnsboro to visit with some friends, and we were completely disconnected from the […]

Ready to Tee Up?

Posted by mcm0704 on October 24, 2018 |

Help me welcome Slim Randles to the blog today with a fun story about Doc and a squirrel and an interesting golf tournament. I’d enter just for the fun, but I think this tournament would challenge even pro golfers. Never having played golf, I’m not sure what golfers like as refreshements, but I suspect the […]

Nothing Like a Dance

Posted by mcm0704 on October 17, 2018 |

Slim Randles returns as today’s Wednesday’s Guest, and I never know if I like his humor best or the more thoughtful essays. If you read the entire post, there is a treat at the end.  Autumn is in the air everywhere now, and just a couple of weeks before Halloween it seems to be an […]

Writing Through Adversity

Posted by mcm0704 on October 8, 2018 |

Before moving on, I thought I’d post this picture of a bloom from a Periwinkle plant. I have lots of the flowers outside across the front of my house, and they are so lush that sometimes I clip a few to bring inside. The blooms don’t last long, and I’ve never had a bud open […]
