Yes, it is true...

...that normally a purist, I do on occasion take cream in my coffee.

And I did do so last year. This simply goes to show that Gawpo is unpredictable.

Uhm, Gawpo? Most of us who take cream in our coffee like to decant it from the little plastic cups. Just sayin' ....

A once-a-year, bona-fide, one-of-a-kind, act-now-while-supplies-last, operators-are-standing-by SPECIAL OCCASION to celebrate the lactation of coffee, for sure!

Those creamers look like they are having fun swimming in your coffee mug. Bronwyn would love that!
She'll take another round tarbender, and a kielbassa platter while your back there.

Great convo this evening, mon ami. To say that I am excited about you travelling to Canada to celebrate with us is an understatement. Yes, you and Joe will give each other away!!! :)

Not one, but two! Lordy. Can you still taste the coffee? I admire your unpredictability, mon peaux... and your hair curl.

As long as no white death yum-yum slipped in there and got soggy you are safe...

It's sort of a superman curl, innit?

Gawpo, you're the cream in our coffee, that's for sure!

QUILLYPOOH: What? Huh? Are you serious? You're joking, right?

I thought so. Good one. You almost had me. GAWD, Quilly---you can be so funny sometimes, I swear!

CAMERON: You are quite the silver-tongued devil, you are. I could not have said it better. Yes! YES!!! WHOOPPIEEEEEE!

MON BLEU: Yes. Perzackly. And a kosher dill with that kielbassa platter, of course. (inside joke)

Altheaux I have yet to confer with confrer Jeaux, I just kneaux he will geaux along with my propeauxsal that he and I give each other away at your wedding. I heauxp he can make it.

SOMEWHERE JEAUX: Yeah, well, I have developed a tolerance over the years. I was thinking about going to three next year. I was going to add something in the text about that curl, but you and Greg had to remind me.

CHEESEBUCKET: Purely a prophylactic maneuver on my part. I practice only safe coffee.

GREG: You nailed it, Greg! I was going to add a Superman reference, but as I just now told Joe, it slipped my mind. Too much creamer in the coffee, I guess. I'm shocked you didn't make some crack about the chincy watchband strapped to the Casio Databank 150.

On other fronts - Krista (our DD) is in Oregon with Q & E. I think she will be seeing Mt. A too.

I have fallen in love with the town. It's at the top of my relocation list.

You are just too funny my friend, too funny indeed!! Predictability is boring anyway!!

"There once was a Gawpo who had a curl right in the middle of his forehead
and when he was good he was very, very good.....but when he was bad he was.....HILARIOUS" (bet you thought I'd say horrid...not YOU!!)"

Dang you're cute!

Now see, Gawpo, I don't like coffee but will occasionally drink an iced mocha. I might be as wild and crazy as you. Whadaya think?

LIMERS: Grrrrr, Baby...GRRRRRR!

ANNIE OF TURLOCK: I cannot argue, Annie. And yes, I am sure Q&E and I will get together. I may be going up to the Abbey soon. My friend Jeremy is back from Rome. I am also craving some serious Claude. You think I'M crazy?! There should be a law prohibiting our being in the same room.

LEESUHOCEANDREEMUH!: Looks like you and I will be meeting out of country next summer. A little Blue birdie told me you are on the guest list. This is so wonderful. I can't wait.

And yes, I did think you were going to say horrid. lol (because it too is sooooo twoo.)

Oh, CLAIRE: Ha! When I began typing your name, my lysdexia came out and I wrote: Ho, CLAIRE. LOL!!!

I'm thinkin' you're one freeky crazy girl, Claire. Iced mochas, when not a coffee lover is indeed cuh-RAZE-ee.

I often wondered what happened to Bill Haley of "Bill Haley and the Comets?! "One, two, three o'clock, four o'clock, rock!!" That curl still workin' for ya, eh? (heh heh)

I destroy good coffee by pouring in a good dollup of cream and Splenda. (one has to watch their sugar, ya know) You a lefty? I am. We're the only one's in our "right minds." ;-)

Unpredictable, funny, witty, full of immeasurable are all of these things and more, my friend, Gawpo. ;)

I would love to have coffee with you just to see what you'd put in your espresso...or café con leche for that matter.

Like you, this photo is priceless. :)

Well after 252 years it's about time.
I just looked at your age in the profile

BUTCHAROONIE: You actually make me have to think about which hand I prefer to slam my joe (if you will..uh-hem). So this morning I did a little experiment and found out that I am completely ambi with respect to my joe-slamming. Then I got out of bed and made some coffee! (rim shot, rim shot---I'll be here all week folks. Be sure to be kind to your waitresses; they've been kind to you!) Turns out though that I am completely left handed when it comes to writing and eating. I can fake right handed eating, but not the writing. Bat right handed. Throw right handed. But I pray only left handed. Like you said....right minds.

SCARLET: Ah, dear Scarleta. You make me blush. All I can say is---takes one to know one. And you, awesome friend, ARE one.

Y entretanto, todo que yo tengo a decir es: Yo tomo mi cafe con leche desnudo.

ALAN: FINALLY! After nearly two years of blogging, somebody has thrown me that frikken bone that I've been waiting for for over 250 years----some credit for the fact that I am still crazy after all these years. (I actually did meet my old lover on a street one night.)

How you doing? I will call see how things are going with you.

I didn't make the beef. I couldn't find Pecarino anywhere.
I may have to go into the Big Smoke to find it.

Instead, I made manicotti, with romano (regular romano) and-get this-old cheddar. It was delicious.
Even the kids ate some.
That's saying something.

Gawpo, I dare you do walk into a Starbuck's in Miami and order a café con leche desnudo! I DARE YOU!! ;)~

PHOGOLILE: I was NEAR the menu, my sweet. Not ON it. But since you mentioned it.....

BLUE TSG: I wonder if you called the house. I was en route to the little airport to hop in the little plane to fly here to the little island (or, as Mr. Gawpo, Sr. pronounces it: "the izzle") to visit the folks and my sister and B.I.L.

Excellent on the personicotti (always p.c. here on the blog) and you got some romano into the chillens. Old cheddar, too. Nice.

LOGO: That's right----I'M HERE!!!!

SCARLETTA: Hmmmmm.........thinking about it..........still thinking about it.........hmmmmmm......

Well, yes, I may very well be out of my mind, but what does that have to do with anything? lol
