    morning disaster

    Our coffee maker bit the dust last night. Just won't work. And, we don't have any instant on hand. I had to boil some water and pour through the basket to get a starter cup before church. Wally World will see us come by later today.

    Our hearts and minds go out to you and your family, Frank. I hope you can make it through the rough times between now and whenever you can get to Wally World.

    There is no bigger coffee addict than me. I keep the Folgers company solvent. I'd give up coffee before making my annual trip to Wally World. I don't like to go shopping. I don't like Wally World. I try (I really do try Sharon) to shop in Wally World at least one time annually. I don't take my wife with me, in case, I freak out in the parking lot or just plain ole' chicken out in the parking lot..I could lie about making the trip since there were no credible witnesses with me....I don't shop anywhere I have to park 4 acres away......Did I mention I don't like shopping or Wally World?


    My sympathies Frank!

    Frank,

    My sympathies are with you. But, like Weldon Kees said, "most things break." Given that, you should do what true coffee addicts do: pick up several cans of premade coffee, like they sell at starbucks and trader joe's. Pouring boiling water through coffee filters is so 90's...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Wow, that was close. Congrats on powering through a difficult time ;-) The very thought of a morning without coffee makes me shudder. Wait, shuddering takes too much energy, I should have said groan .

    I survived. Pouring hot water through the filter got results. Not good results but gulpable coffee. Later found a tiny, one cup, maker in the pantry. Works and I'm drinking coffee from it now. Need to get that caffeine titer up to working levels before world starts revolving every day.
    Cheers, y'all.

    Glad to hear that you survived Frank. I think you need to build a case and put a jar of instant behind it with a sign in case of emergency.....
