I’ll get my coffeepot and you can make us some, long as you make it strong enough.”
–Charles G. West (Hell Hath No Fury)
It is a pure delight to welcome you to our little abode this mornin’. Don’t worry, the coffee is plenty strong. That’s one thing that’s hard to find anymore–strong coffee. Pard, I’ve even seen folk water down weak coffee. Take a sip, ahhh, now that makes the gizzard smile with delight.
Speakin’ of coffee, I was sure in a dilemma this week. The wife and I took the grandkids to Chuck E Cheese on Monday. We decided not to eat, but then I spied a coffeepot, well, not exactly, one of those Keurig contraptions. I decided to get me a cup and watch the kids run around and do their thing. Then I was placed in a big consternation. I had to make a choice between bad and worse. They had decaf and they had a couple of those yucky flavored mixes: either vanilla or mocha. Now, those aren’t bad choices for ice cream, but coffee??? What a dilemma, but as I wrote the other day, I had to make a choice. Either that or no coffee at all. I chose the plain coffee, no flavorin’, even though it was decaf. Oh, well, sometimes we have to suffer with the choices we make.
I’ve been makin’ up for it. Coffee’s been hot, strong, and black all week, and I make several pots. Ahh, let me fill yur cup up again. We’ll knock this pot out real quick like.
Say, you might find this interestin’. I was unpackin’ my knives the other day when I came across this little note from Al Buck, founder of Buck Knives. It’s a might long, but take time to read and then ponder what he said.
“…From the beginning, management determined to make God the Senior Partner. In a crisis, the problem was turned over to Him, and He hasn’t failed to help us with the answer. Each knife must reflect the integrity of management, including our Senior Partner. If sometimes we fail on our end, because we are human, we find it imperative to do our utmost to make it right. Of course, to us, besides being Senior Partner, He is our heavenly Father also, and it’s a great blessing to us to have this security in these troubled times. If any of you are troubled or perplexed and looking for answers, may we invite you to look to Him, for God loves you.”
Pard, do you know if the company still includes that note with their knives?
Have to be gettin’ this ol’ fence post cleaned up. Have some fancy doin’s to attend to and it takes a while to whittle on this post.
Don’t fret none, I won’t be cause I’ll be checkin’ my cinch.
