As Requested, Photos Of The Late Coffee Maker


This photo goes with the post below it. It was requested by inquiring minds in the commentary of the lightning post.

Here we see two of the funeral procession expressing their grief over the loss. Junior (left) and his buddy Jonathon agreed to be pallbearers. It's obvious that even funerals are casual dress here in the subtropics.
The lads are not coffee addicts at their tender age, but they seem to feel my pain. (That would be the caffeine withdrawal headache scrunching my brow)

Casual is better, anyhow.

My sympathies on your loss, and I hope you find a way to get some more caffeine soon.

Oh how very sad. I didn't realize how hard it would be to look at those remains. You have my deepest sympathy. Those two are very cute pallbearers. This will be one of those moments they will always remember. LOL!

Mrs. S,
I suppose we'll have a wake for it tonight...
... AWAKE ...heh, pretty appropriate for a caffeine machine.

These two are always writing stories, scripts, and making video.
As such, they are good sports for any hammy thing I ask them to do.

I feel your pain I drink about 48 onces a day I have a grinder so its always fresh.

No coffee?! How horrible. You could always use a filter in a strainer and pour boiling water over the grounds...not that I would have ever resorted to such :)

roger said...

a real addict would have backup.

the boys look appropriately glum at your misfortune, tho junior may be smirking.

OldHorsetailSnake said...

This is a funeral, and the boys are laughing? Please reserve them as guests for my wake.

Perhaps you could consider this an opportunity to get your caffeine from iced tea, in the way the gods intended: unsweetened.

Floridacracker said...

48 ounces a day? That's about 3 times what I drink. Do you sleep?

I really don't feel the caffiene withdrawals until late on the second day. I got a new coffee maker this evening!

not really an addict...2 cups in the morning and that is it.
junior and I are often caught smirking.

Just as long as it's not any time soon :)

Really now, to a coffee drinker (unsweetened of course), the tiny caffiene amount in tea might as well not be there.

I don't think I could survive one day without coffee. It's too much for me to even think about.

I do like your post on lightning. It reminds me of lightning storms at Lake Tahoe when I was growing up.

Oh, your poor departed coffee maker...I'm sure will be replaced by a better model.

We have had some really bad lightning storms for about a week and one of our friends husbands was sitting in his living room watching TV when the house was struck by lightning. They live atop a high hill. The lightning came through the wall outlet next to his chair, entered through his hand, burned his chest in two places and left through his foot. He's lucky to be alive. His wife said that it's the second time their house has been struck by lightning in the last 13 months.

Lucky me, Mrs. FC bought me some chocolate covered espresso beans to munch on.

That's a scary story. We tend to think we're safe in the house.
