Short post because this has been my week………….

More rain

More mud

More cold

More sleep lost

Mo’ frac (insert period)

The end is in sight. (insert happy face emoticon)

For some perspective, I have not had a free and clear 20 minutes for the past 3 weeks to roast some coffee beans.  The way it works – for me anyway-  recently has been for me to stretch out on the couch any time there is not traffic coming over the horizon.  Sometimes I get one minute of respite and sometimes I get an hour or better.  The thing is you just never know and if you hang and wait for a slack in the traffic about all you end up with is some hangin’ and waitin’.  Those sand hawgs run day and night ’cause they don’t know a clock.

Grabbin' some rest.

Grabbin’ some rest.

I am an early AM coffee drinker  like before the sun comes up early.  3am early.  You won’t see me with a cup much after 9.  The fall back when the fresh ground is gone is those little tubos of Taster’s Choice freeze dried.  Turns out I had about 3 weeks worth stashed back so yesterday I was forced to roast and grind some of the good stuff.  I had noted I was drinking more coffee than usual;  like six or seven cups; but blew it off to my dilapidated state.

It was chilly out this morning and by 3am there was a good little frost layin’ on the grass.  I had on 3 layers of clothes because that north wind was cuttin’ hard edge through the pucker brush.  Around about 5am I was coming back in the door of the Palace for the umpteenth hundredth time when I got the sweats and I felt like somebody had slapped a turbo-pacemaker in my chest and plugged it straight into a wall socket,  WTF?!  Stroke? Heart attack?  Aneurysm?  Nope, nothing that dramatic.  I had just overdosed my own self on high octane  real  cafe’ — nada mas.  Silly ass me;  I need to watch closer!

Just a quick note: Seems I ruffled some feathers last week with some socio-political commentary. Hey, it is what it is.  I am sick to death of this miasma miring the country that makes good folks cautious to speak their real mind.  I don’t give a rat’s ass about being PC.  I strive to be courteous and properly respectful but that don’t mean I have to keep my lip buttoned up  – No sir!  Don’t get me wrong now.  I enjoy a good and spirited debate and I find alternate viewpoints of curious interest.  Fact is though I will not tolerate rude behavior from any man and likewise; if you come in here all judgmental just remember you are not walking in my shoes!  I take criticism and advice well from those I respect or admire which admittedly is a precious few souls.  If you poke the bull, you might get the horns.  Just sayin’….

 

End Note: My Diamond is Too Rough by Ryan Bingham from Fear and Saturday Night.  New Ryan Bingham. Good youtube to go with it.

    Seeing you and Tuco on the couch reminded me of “Old dogs, Children and Watermelon Wine.” “Old dogs care about you even when you make mistakes.”

    As far as ruffled feathers go, I wouldn’t lose too many Z’s over it.

    If someone is offended by my point of view, fine. That’s their God given right. But someone being offended does not obligate me to change my mind, and it does not negate my right to speak my mind.

    And chances are, if I said something that offends somebody, their views are probably just as offensive to me.

    Just how freedom works…

  • Wow u kinda freaked me out with the heart thing. As a past heart surgery ( lived thru that person) . I just do decaf now. Took a bit to adjust to that. I know u believe in preventive maintenance. So when u get a break for a bit get a complete heart work up. That could have been a warning sign. Have been reading your blog for about 3 years. Hope u are banking the cash. U have been working so hard . Hope the dreams are still there.
    Cheers rob

    We are about the same age (me being your senior) with a lot of the same views but far apart on many others. In real life, we might not be best buddies but I know we whould respect each other. I find less and less people I can say that about.
