Surprise coffee! I though I'd be gone by now, but stuff happens! I'm packing now & will be headed out early this morning.

I put coffee on a while ago.... after a while I noticed it had made a 1/4 pot, then no more. No bubbly sound, no good smell. Huh? Oh, good grief, that was yesterdays coffee. It never got emptied or rinsed, and I hadn't added water this morning. Duh! I got it filled & now have good hot java. Looks like breakfast is a sandwich on the run from the local store. I'm not making dirty dishes.

Ya know, if you haven't done so, it might be a good time to think about coal for this winter. It's never too early, but it can get close to too late!

Enjoy the weekend. Hug your loved ones.

Too funny freddy, I put the pot on at 5:20 and it made a constant whine instead of 3 second whine then a kurplunk sound being an electric perk-o-lator. Stupid me didn't have the stem seated properly in the pot, and I just stood there staring at it for a minute because I needed my coffee so I could figure out what was wrong with the coffee pot! :lol:
Must get motivated and get ready for the day, have a safe trip freddy and hope to see you this year!

Good morning everyone. Beautiful outside at the moment, but it looks like there will be some scattered storms this afternoon. I am planning on taking my little guy to a fair in VT to see the tractors...they have everything from "mild to wild" at this fair.

Thanks for the coal reminder Freddy. I made a few calls this week to try and get a load lined up.

Good morning all:

No java for me this morning, soda instead. I have family staying with us this weekend so no work in the shop. No complaints. I have added a new coal stove to my growing collection. I just purchased another Chubby Sr with the factory blower system. I have one already in my collection, however, this one was less than a hundred bucks so I couldn't pass up the deal. I just had to drive a little over three hundred miles one way to pick it up. It has a lot of surface rust, however, it seems to be in good shape. It will clean up nice and will be added to my collection. It is a year newer than the current Sr I have in my collection. So now I have two Sr's and one Jr Chubby in my collection. I know where the hell are the pics! They will be coming soon. I will start a new thread in the hand fired section this week. So stay tuned there for that.

Freddy, I already ordered enough coal for my parents home two weeks ago. The dealer had a mid summer sale which wasn't too bad so I ordered five ton for them. I have not ordered coal for myself yet. My wife and I are considering selling our current home and moving. Not fun since I will have to move the shop as well again. This is the reason I have not ordered coal for myself. Two weeks ago a village just north of us had frost, we had temps of 34F. I was excited since I was hoping the temp would stay low so I could fire up the coal stove. No joy, the temp shot back up into the high 90's.

I hope everyone is having a good summer and getting ready for winter. I hope this winter is an old fashion kick our ass kind of winter. It would be nice. I need to get going since family is now up and making a lot of noise. Take care and be safe everyone.

I'm so addicted to good coffee that I have considered buying a small home roaster and roasting my own. Have any of you gone this route?

Good morning. A rainy morning here in the “Neighborhood of Make-Believe”. It is going to be rough getting back into the swing of things after a week of vacation followed by a short four day work week but I do it all for you Mr. bill collector. If it were not for you I could sit around and drink beer, smoke dope and watch *censored* all the days of my life, but Nooooo, you wanna take all my stuff if I do that. :mad:
Thursday was a great time in Hershey. Cassadee Pope, The Band Perry, Journey, and Rascal Flatts in a concert that lasted about five hours. The only thing not so great about these type of events is coming and leaving with several thousand others. :mad2:
No coffee pot malfunctions here. That is what the wife is for; to make the coffee. Speaking of the wife I had to take her to a local fireman’s carnival to buy tickets to win a car. Today we are going shopping for seat covers and floor mats and miscellaneous accessories so that we are ready for when they call us to tell us that we won our new car. Winning the Power Ball and a new car in the same night could be enough to put me into cardiac arrest, better not forget the Digitalis. :dancing:
Have a good weekend. A full week of work is just around the corner. :sick:

Well I figured I'd stop in and see if there is anything left in the pot.

Thanks Anthony for not draining it, that hit the spot. I did leave some there in case anyone else stops by..............

Freddy, enjoy the time off. Now get up there and get the damn A/C hooked up. You will still need it this year.

Drove over to Trenton late yesterday afternoon to watch the grandson play the first game of the Cal Ripken 9U Regional tournament. Got caught up in alot of traffic in Trenton due to everyone going to see that lying ass steroid taking druggie A-ROD who was supposed to play there for the Trenton Thunder. What a friggin nightmare !!!! But on the bright side the grandson's team won quite handily defeating the NY team 11-0 in 4 innings due to the mercy rule. They play again tonight under the lights, tomorrow at noon and then we'll see where they stand in the playoff picture. They do not have a world series for their age group so this is it....... Last game if they continue is Wednesday. And I would definitely have to be going to that game whatever time it is.

On the downside, My alzheimer riddled mother fell and broke her hip. She's in good health for her age. Surgery went well but she was taken out of the assisted living place and now resides in a nursing home for recovery. She will probably be there for 2-3 months. Then we will see where she goes from there. Hopefully she will be able to stay at the nursing home as alzheimer patients cannot handle change. So we are hoping this is the last change of residence for her.

Take care everyone,

Missed coffee today. I had a long day. Ran a ton of errands with my wife. Stopped by Crazy4coal's to chat, ended up meeting up with my wife's sister and her husband for a late lunch and some shopping. And not I'm contending with a bat that has somehow found it's way into my living room. Tried to catch it with a fishing net, failed. Went out side to get a window screen and I come back in and can't find it now.

Its either found a good place to hide now. Found its way to the attic. Flew out behind me when I went out to get a window screen or it's watching me planning on turning me into a vampire when I'm least expecting it.

I'm getting sleepy. My wife is working too. Maybe I'll let her just discover it when she comes home at 1 am. LOL

Rick, sorry about your mom. I hope me makes a quick recovery.

Coffee pot challenges! :) I'm glad it happens to other people too!!
Thanks for the reminder about the coal. I usually get my six tons in July. This year I couldn't because I'm not finished fixing my "new" gravity bin wagon that will become my rolling coal bin (I'm welding plates over the rust holes and will give it a complete paint job.) So I'll be buying my coal in late August/Early September. It's giving me a rash not having the bin full before now!
I always chuckle at the guys who complain to me that they can't get coal in January because there is none to be had when it is cold and the demand is outpacing the supply. I tell them 'should have filled your bin in July!' :!:

I was having troubles with my coffee machine recently too lol. I was getting grounds in my pot. It's no fun getting a mouthful of coffee grounds. There was some flow blockage in the filter compartment. It would fill up with fluid and spill grounds over the filter. It's just a Wal-Mart cheapy .

Anyways. I got my 6 tons of nut coal in May with tax refund money. Winter heating bill is paid in full 8-)
