Random Happy Horseshit

“Coffee, Glorious Coffee!!” Just doesn’t have the same ring. Too many syllables ; )


#163

For some reason I sort of conflate Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol. I suppose because they’re both Dickens.

Here’s Bob, with Tim on his shoulder outside their house. You can see Mrs. Cratchit through the window, being long-suffering and domestic.


#164

I obviously twisted them up.


#165

Well, bud, I have to say I’m enjoying your recent twist on DSJ : )

Another HH topic for Jazz fans:

Listening to an almost-10-year-old kid - Joey Alexander’s, “My Favorite Things”…(OK, he was 11 years old at the time) - and Tony Bennett and Bill Charlap, “The Silver Lining - the Songs of Jerome Kern” by a 90 year old singer.

That is Some very Happy Stuff. Inspiring. Whether you’re young or old.

@Badbeef My roasting department will be packaging up your La Milagrosa (Boquete, Panama) Gesha and sending it your way shortly.

Your Dickens Village is pretty impressive I must say. I dare to ask how many hours invested each year to its setup? I hate that I am even asking because the last thing I need is one more cause for any spare time I have to go “poof!”

As long as your roasters don’t actually Roast it, I’m good. Send me the raw stuff. :+1:t2:

“La Milagrosa” (due to my limited Spanish) brings to mind, “Malaguena Salerosa”.

Things are always reminding me of songs.

A Classic, covered by The Tubes, “Back in the Day”. And Avenged Sevenfold, more recently. : )

re: Decoration Setup Time invested so far:

A couple of happily destracted hours at this point.

Many years the Village has been 4x of this, depending on time - and have proprtionately more Buildings and so on.

However, The Melancholy Tavern and the Cratchit House are a couple of faves : )

But of course!

:rofl: That is fantastic!


#173

I will need an intervenous drip to sustain me during this Saturday before Christmas shopping foray.


#174

I’m filling a hiking water backpack… ; )


#175

Ah, a water back pack, excellent, I made it through my Saturday shopping with a little sugar on the side :):grin:
Now enjoying a Sunday morning brew and the music.
Have a Merry Christmas

JeffofArabica’s Panamanian Gesha. GREAT stuff - and I don’t even usually like Central American coffees : )

Literally looks good enough to eat.


#178

Well, roasted, ground up and boiled and so on, at any rate ; )


#179

Glad you liked Tito’s “Miracle” beans :coffee: :grinning:

Here is the man behind it all, Mr. Hector “Tito” Vargas.


#180

Feeling very thankful today for the world we inhabit and where my problems here are often limited to sound that 99% of the people I know would consider amazing.

I’ve been reading lots of Gulag literature lately and stuff like that really grounds you. God bless and listen well.

Coffee “grounds” me ; )
