Have Another Cup 

Seems like not a day goes by that you don’t turn on your computer and there is at least one if not more folks pictured having a cup of coffee.  My Facebook feed is full of them, all my friends, or want to be friends wanting to share that first cup of the day with me.  I was talking with one of Trailhead Supply’s customers about this and I said I like it!!! 

Not necessarily all these unknown random pics of folks drinking coffee, but the idea of it all.  See back before there were Starbucks, or any Coffee Bar / Espresso Stands for that matter, I had coffee almost every morning with my Grandfather. The thing was he was 2000 miles away. It didn’t matter where I was traveling around the country for work or if I wanted to sleep in on a Sunday morning the phone rang at 6am. “Are you up?” was the greeting I heard  7 days a week on the phone.  Back before cell phones and I was on the road or sitting in some airport waiting for a flight I would call him from some old pay phone.  I can’t even begin to imagine how many cups of coffee I’ve drank in phone booths talking to him. My day started out the same everyday…. knowing he was ok and that was enough for me to have a good day.

As a bonus I also learned all the happenings in the entire family and everything happening in Moorpark, CA. For those of you that might care Moorpark spelled backwards is kraproom.  Those days are long gone. Now, I drink coffee looking at pics of folks I really don’t know and reading texts from my kids.  So, enjoy what you have, make the most of it…..we all know it won’t last forever.  So, have another cup………….

Miss ya Reg………….
