I am Dale Parsons, and this is my lovely wife of nearly fifty years, Mary. We have a wonderful family we love dearly.
Maggie is our mini-goldendoodle. She is a loving and faithful companion.
A Coffee State of Mind includes posts on many topics. The following links hold examples from each of the menu collections:
Model railroading has been my hobby since I was fifteen years old. The posts include many photos of my HO scale Maple Valley Short Line Model Railroad, plus many how-to items for those interested in learning about the hobby.
Mental Health is obviously important.
The Blogging item is a catch-all for a menagerie of topics, none of which are about how to write a blog.
Scandal at Maple Valley started nearly two years ago when I found what was left of a small toy car in an old barn. I took the car home and put it on my train layout, and thought, “There’s a scandal in Maple Valley. Sylvia Meisner has disappeared and her burned car was found under Three Tower Bridge.” That was more than thirty episodes ago.
I hope you will choose to follow A Coffee State of Mind and invite your friends to join you.
Thanks so much!
