During my very nice, very sunny and refreshing 36F-ride today, I stopped off at Dollar Tree to pick up some nifty-neat 'Summer Mugs' for MissyDWolf & Self.
Normally, I'm NOT allowed to buy coffee mugs; I have to admit it - I HAVE A PROBLEM, HERE.
Even Betty Ford couldn't help me.
We have SO MANY coffee mugs, we have boxes stored back behind bike parts, in the garage.
No matter! Summer is a GREAT excuse to 'fall off the wagon' instyle, mind you (yea, and so I did).
 Lo & Behold - they had ONE set of very-kitsschy 'summer mugs'!!!
They are a heavier ceramic, simply beautifly-ugly in color and style! They are SO cool; I am SO HAPPY I could shi...well...I'm happy!
MissyDWolf was even happy and shocked.
I did good!
Dollar Tree did good!
Only ONE problem....they aren't quite large enough to hold a Molson's Ice.
Guess I'll have to use them for coffee, damnitnow!
Can you guess which one is MINE?!

I want a couple of Two and a Half Men mugs.
 
 
Those damn things are hard to find.
 
I've seen 'em on ebay, but I don't want a whole set, plus with shipping etc., they are expensive.
 
 
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Everytime I see those mugs, I always think of how tasty a cup of sweet creamy, tan-colored coffee would look against those pastel colors on the white background.
 
For some reason, those mugs just look like they'd make the coffee taste (even) better.

Wink...I think you just touched on the reason for my 'addiction' to coffee mugs. Every stinkin' one had that very feeling behind it...and probably a story, too. In fact, I KNOW every one of them has a story. I am VERY picky about which ones I allow to be iused, and by whom - some are simply untouchable. I even have one I picked up in Tampa, one time - a beautiful large pastel painting of good ol' St. Wrinklesburg sunset on a pink background. A true 'one-of-a-kind', I gave it away as a gift. I started 'jonesing' almost immediately and suffered for about 5 years before the dear friend I gave it to could no longer stand it (and I never said a thing, mind you - but this individual knew me that well) and gave it back to me as a 'gift'. It is put away, NOBODY is allowed to use it. Think I'll find it and post a pic. 
(yea - coffee does taste better when one can slowly sip and recall the memories, the times, the story behind a mug...I have 3 shelves of the kitchen cabinet, the tops of the cabinets, and some other special places where my favorite 100 or so reside - then there is the garage...)
Even though MissyDWolf does not share my affliction, she DOES have HER mugs - and NOBODY, not even our kids (espeically the gurlz) are allowed to touch them.
We have 'company mugs' for friends and family.LOL

When some family visited me here a few years ago, the mugs and coffee cups I had weren't good or big enough.  We had to go to the Dollar Tree to get some gigantic ones, which now just take up space in my cabinet.
 
They were lucky I even had a coffee maker (which I've still never operated myself).
 
I think that, the first time they asked for coffee, I should've pulled out this stuff:

Seen those for many years (actually, a very old concept).
But alas, no - none of those. Had many chances, but if I DID have one of those, what would wash out the 'lunch leftovers' from my 'stache?
Really though - think I have a phobia about 'moustache guards' - pretty sure I'll suffocate if I come in contact with one.

WinkOne thing where folk can really pick up bucks collecting mugs is in the class of 'shaving mugs'; especially the older ones.
Hooty's 'moustache protector' has had me thinking about them since he showed that one - original 'shaving mugs' LOOKED like they had 'moustache proectors', but I think they generally were designed like that to hold the various utensils of the craft.
The older ones often had names on them - many of the 'upper-crust' ones were made for individuals and are worth a pretty penny to real collectors.
*I* have always avoided them as they *just are NOT* really designed to be coffee mugs, even though they could readily be adapted to be such. I have absolutely NONE of them.
The never ones are just STRANGE - like 'The Unemployed Jesus' one, below (which is designed to be used either way - shaving, or coffee - and is 'heat sensative'!)...

My oldest sister doesn't drink coffee and so never bought a coffee maker.  My poor shlep b-in-law put up with instant coffee (bleh, ooh, yuk, nasty) for twenty-some years.  Well last time I go to visit I had to stay a couple of nights with them so I took my own coffee maker and coffee.  I left the coffee maker for my b-in-law when I went home.  A while back my other sister tells me that my  sister gave the coffee maker away.Angry

Sounds like the bro-in-law needs to grow a pair.
 
I wouldn't mind someone coming by my house every morning at around 5am to make coffee.  I wouldn't drink the stuff but I'd suck in the aroma.  I love the way coffee smells.

Seriously.
 
He shoulda gone out & bought a coffee maker 20 years ago & if she gave it away, he shoulda thrown some of her favorite cosmetics out & told her the next time she threw away something of his, it was gonna be more of the same.
 
You have to train people. Thumbs Up

Ouch'Real Men' don't drink instant coffee. We train our spouses in the fine art of 'serving the perfect cup from a proper coffee maker' - it can take time, but take it from me - it's worth it!
It reminds you every day of why marriage works.

Big smileIt IS indeed 'living the dream'; waking up right before dawn with fresh coffee brewing.
I do it every day.
MissyDWolf wakes up to a proper cup every morning and I *never* make a mess (she got me a nifty apron to make sure).
