World Cup Soccer and Writing

Posted by mcm0704 on July 16, 2018 |

Since I like to celebrate strong women in my books and on my blog, I want to say how impressed I was with Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović when the Croatian Soccer Team lost to France in the final game of the World Cup. The internet was filled with pictures of her celebrating the team despite the […]

Hot Enough For You?

Posted by mcm0704 on July 11, 2018 |

It’s Wednesday, so time for Slim Randles to entertain us with another story featuring the gang down at the Mule Barn Truck Stop.  It is so hot… How hot is it? Hot enough to keep the guys indoors and maybe they’re drinking iced tea instead of coffee. Help yourself to a glass and enjoy… “Hot? […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on July 9, 2018 |

Before moving on, I want to share a couple pictures from my big birthday bash that was held the end of June. This first one is of my son-in-law, Matt, who doesn’t like to have his picture taken. At any family gathering he joins my son, Paul, in avoiding cameras at all costs. While out […]

Happy Fourth of July

Posted by mcm0704 on July 4, 2018 |

“It’s my birthday and I’ll cry if I want to…” For some reason that line always fights with “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy” for prominence in my mind on my birthday. The “why” of the second song is understandable, but I’ve never quite understood the significance of the crying until this year. There were lots […]

Taking a Break

Posted by mcm0704 on June 29, 2018 |

I will be offline for the most part during the next week and a half. First to spend a few days with my kids over the weekend celebrating my birthday without attachments to electronics. They have arranged everything for the party, and I don’t even know the venue, or what is planned for Saturday. I […]

Mysteries That Matter

Posted by mcm0704 on June 27, 2018 |

It’s not even summer yet, and already Texas is sizzling. It got to nearly 100 degrees the other day, and I’m sure that it is pretty hot in many other places. Perhaps it’s  time for some cherry lemonade. It’s easy to make, and I have plenty, so help yourself. If you’d like the recipe, you […]

#Fridayreads – Excerpt From a Humorous Memoir

Posted by mcm0704 on June 22, 2018 |

Now that I am back living in a neighborhood and not out in the country anymore, this excerpt from my humorous memoir, A Dead Tomato Plant And A Paycheck, is particularly meaningful. I did like my country home that was surrounded by pine trees, so there was no real lawn to deal with. The rest […]

Great Summer Evenings

Posted by mcm0704 on June 20, 2018 |

Before moving on to the guest post by Slim Randles I want to share something special from last Sunday. The Let’s Play Beginner Drama Camp at the Winnsboro Center for the Arts was dedicated to me, and I must say it was a great honor, as well as a huge surprise. I was the Theatre […]

A Special Dog

Posted by mcm0704 on June 13, 2018 |

Slim Randles is my guest again today. This time with a sweet story about a dog and his job. I’ve just returned from a quick trip to Austin, so no time to bake. Does anyone have a cookie or scone to share with our coffee? Before I turn the stage over to Slim Randles, I […]
