2nd Cup of Coffee for 2/26/19: JUST KIDDING… and KIDDING… and . . .

Kidding is NOT for cowards nor the weak of knees.  Raising children has always been the reserve of rank amateurs; by the time we’ve kind of got a handle on it, we’re grandparents – and we have a whole new rulebook. Now, in a world seemingly overrun by ‘adult’ children, the task is all but … Continue reading »

2nd Cup for 2/1/19: WHEN EGO HITS THE WALL

What others see as losing is sometimes the best possible win. The story went like this . . . Last year I entered a marathon.  Did it right.  Shocking white top, Deep Purple Haze Adidas silk blend compression shorts, and Adidas UltraBoost  STs in Clear Mint /Aqua.    The race started.  If you know anything about my health history, … Continue reading »

2nd Cup for 1/19/19: A Mute For Ashley’s Mouth

“So-o-o, what did you guys do on your honeymoon?” The tone and delivery made it clear:  wrinkles and liver spots have nothing in common with love. The inquisitor was a twenty-something wielding more questions than sense, a grand-niece hailing from one side or the other of their blended families.  She stood in the defiant, lock-kneed … Continue reading »

A Christmas 2018 2nd Cup: “LOVE’S PURE LIGHT . . . “

“LOVE’S PURE LIGHT. . . “ “. . . and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.” We either read it every year or listen as somebody else does.

2nd Cup of Coffee, 11/30/18: “WHAT? SAY THAT AGAIN?”

KIDS SAY THE FUNNIEST THINGS   “Close the curtains,” requested a tot, sitting in a pool of bright light. “The sun’s looking at me too hard.” Someone asked a youngster when he would turn 6. He replied, “When I’m tired of being 5.” Seeing her first hailstorm, a 3-year-old exclaimed, “Mommy!  It’s raining dumplings!” As her … Continue reading »

A Granger Story – 2nd Cup of Coffee, 11/3/18: THE GRANGER EFFECT ~ Ch. 2

2 I sat sipping some great Ruta Maya medium roast and reflecting on the call I just got from Sparks.  And dabbing.  Somehow, a little of the coffee was spilled on the sleeve of my flannel shirt.  No idea how that might’ve happened.  However, the irregular blob of ochre brown, though complimentary to the barn … Continue reading »

2nd Cup of Coffee, 9/6/18: WHAT’S THIS DOING HAIR? or A BRIDGE TOO FUR

A MESSAGE TO OUR PETS  Dear Furballs and Fuzzfaces, The dishes with the paw prints, often strangely found in the middle of the kitchen floor, are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate of food does not stake a claim … Continue reading »

2nd Cup of Coffee, 7/30/18 – THE NOON-HOUR STYLE SHOW

It was lunch hour, and the four friends gathered as usual outside the Arlington Ave. exit, getting their favorite table where they could capture the breeze.  As they sat down, they automatically bowed their heads in a silent appreciation for jobs, food, and God’s grace. The minute they began unwrapping their sandwiches, Fred leaned in, even … Continue reading »
