WARNING: THIS IS A LONG POST WITH LOTS OF PICTURES
Welcome to T-day to T-Day............say what???
I am actually starting this post on Tuesday August 19, yes I know this will be read a week later, that's the To T-Day part....LOL But WHY? you ask! Well, THIS morning (the 19th follow along as best as you can here) I woke up to find a dead coffee pot! Yep! deader than dead! Yep, there was water in it and coffee grounds where they were supposed to be, the timer was correct, the delay switch had been activated, and it was plugged in..........................................................but NO COFFEE!
The final picture of this coffee maker.......may it rest in peace. I will keep the pot itself, they make great watering pots for the smaller flower pots, and a good measuring pot for some of the fertilizers.
This poor OLD coffee maker has been around for over 35 years......can you believe that? It was one of the first "cooking" utensils DH ever bought for just me (he's not a coffee drinker). It was the FIRST drip style coffee maker I ever owned........well, I still own it....grin I can't even find filters for this anymore, so I create my own. After years of use here, it then went and lived at our cabin, then back home, when we sold the cabin years later. It has out lasted 5 or 6 other coffee makers!!
It looks pretty sad, but I was so happy that I've hung onto it this morning, cause it still works like a charm, just doesn't look charming. I keep it out in the garage cabinet and just barely wiped the dust off of it before getting the coffee going. (oh ya, I HAVE to have starter fluid every morning) The white specks are from the oven cleaner getting too close when I spray the top of my stove, all the black parts are starting to harden and turn gray, and you have to remove the top part in order to pour the coffee, and you have to remember to turn it OFF.........LOL
So this afternoon, after a visit to the gym, I will go get an other coffee maker, with a timer, and delay switch. Yes, I am very spoiled when it comes to having a fresh pot of coffee at my finger tips when I wake up.
As Paul Harvey used to say......................"stay turned for THE REST OF THE STORY"
AND NOW FOR THE REST OF THE STORY......
Well I did go to the gym last Tuesday and I did go by Kohl's and buy me a new coffee maker, aint she pretty?? Makes a full pot, or on the right side you can make one cup or use a K-Cup. K-Cups are a one serving flavored coffee that require a Kreurig ( special coffee maker) So it is like having two/three pots all in one. I did buy a box of K-Cups in four different flavors. So far I have tried the Kahlua flavor.......pretty good. I'm not real big on flavored coffee or tea, but every once in a while I enjoy them in the evening.
So on to this weeks MUG SHOT!............
|Oh yes, a red neck party!!!! No, this is not my drink.|
I drank wine and NOT out of a plastic cup!
Let's have a party, let's have a party
I love you red solo cup, I lift you up
Proceed to party, proceed to party
( Toby Keith - Red Solo Cup Lyrics | MetroLyrics )
So onto the "Under the Sea Shark" Party............you can look away now if your not interested in a party for an 8 year old girl...............or don't believe in weapons of any kind.
There were only a few things she really asked for and one was a real cross bow, and her daddy bought her a pink one! We are true "rednecks"! NOW, Hannah didn't get the bow, arrows (which are just practice arrows) and a target to ready herself for hunting. She want to take archery and I am thinking I might just get a bow and join her. She has already practice until her arm ached, but she has managed to hit a bulls eye already, and that was the next day!
As you can see we also enjoyed the beautiful pool, all the kid-Os swam until they could hardly crawl out of the pool. It was a great party and she went to bed one happy little girl.
Now to link up with Elizabeth, the head TEA drinker and see what's in everybody else's cup this week. What's in yours???
Thanks for stopping by, please let me know you came by.
Please no negative comments about the cross bow, this is not the place for political comments. This is who we are and we do not fault anybody that feels differently, so please be as respectful to us.
