Coffee Percs

The coffee tasted good, and under the warmth of it and the comfort of the blaze, our spirits rose.”
–Louis L’Amour

Get in here pard, and let me check yuh over.  Say, not bad after feasting at Thanksgiving.  No extra pounds I take it?  We did it, I didn’t gain nuthin’ either, so let’s lift our cups high and maybe have an extra piece of pie today.  I hurried back from the woods just so I could greet yuh at the door this mornin’.  (Now if you believe that there is some property I’d like to sell.)
Ahhh, good time Thanksgiving, coffee over the campfire; now that’s hard to beat.  And I felt special, the missus made me a special pie–blackberry/raspberry.  If’n I had thought I’d saved you a piece–ha, that’s a joke friend.  Let me tell yuh it sure made the ol’ gizzard happy.  Plus we had a little concert; the middle granddaughter was singin’ ’round the campfire!
Goodness, we’re sure putting down the coffee this mornin’.  This ol’ pot will be goin’ dry soon if we keep at it.  But, back to Thanksgiving.  Besides countin’ all our blessin’s Thanksgivin’ begins the wonderful Holiday Season.  This is a great time of the year if we keep our sights properly set.  Don’t be dismayed about someone say “Happy Holidays,” instead of Merry Christmas.  Mostly it shows their ignorance, for it means “Happy Holy Days.”  Come to think of it, Christmas is a happy, holy event.  Stop and ponder that for a while–the holiness of Christmas.
Shopping?  What is this, Black Saturday?  Come to think of it, I need to get a few little things myself.  Not plannin’ on goin’ out for long, just too many people.  Wait, just ’cause the pot’s gone dry don’t mean yuh have to get up and leave.  I hadn’t got to my preachifying yet.
Okay pard, have a good day, and don’t forget to have your sights set properly this Christmas/Holiday Season.  And anytime you go out be sure to check that cinch.
