Coffee Percs

She came with coffee and he sat down with his back to the wall and cupped it in his hands.  Never had coffee tasted so good.”

I know, I know, I’m late and burnin’ daylight.  Pard, reckon I’m just becomin’ a lazy bum.  But wait’ll yuh taste the coffee and it’ll make yuh forget that I was slow in movin’ round this mornin’.  Ahhh, now tell me that ain’t good coffee.  If’n yuh do, yur a-lyin’.  
I’m still a little achy from that tumble I took the other day.  No, it wasn’t ’cause I didn’t check my cinch, or that the wife was flirtin’ with me.  I’d been doin’ some work, cuttin’ wood and had sat down to get the fire started so I could grill.  Stomach was gettin’ upset so I figured it was somethin’ I et for lunch.  I stood up, took a step, and then started my downward fall.  Yuh know, I used to dive for ground balls, but now that ground seems harder and it comes up to greet yuh.  Reckon I had a touch of heat exhaustion.
Beginnin’ to figure out I’m not as spry as I used to be.
    Say Pard, did yuh hear that Starbucks, I think in Tempe, AZ, asked some police officers to leave because their presence was scarin’ a customer?  Just throw it in the pile with the rest of the absurd things.  Hmmm, I didn’t think yuh could refuse a customer.  Let’s see bakers have been sued for not doin’ gay or transgender cakes.  Listen, there’s just somethin’ wrong with this picture.  More and more that scripture has been comin’ to mind.  “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20, NKJV).  Look at that first word, “Woe”.  Now, that’s a frightful word when the Lord uses it!  Folks should be fallin’ on their knees to thank the good Lord for His patience.
    My, yuh shore did guzzle that coffee down.  Oh, ’cause I was late, yuh had to drink fast so yuh could get yur errands done.  Okay, Pard, next week I’ll hopefully be back on track.  Yuh be havin’ a good weekend.  Be shore to visit the Lord’s house this Sunday, and don’t be takin’ a tumble like I did–check yur cinch.
