I just rediscovered this.
Close your eyes and let it wash away all your woes... even if only for a minute or two.
It suddenly brought back happy memories of days long past.

So who, I say, WHO, in the name of both Strunk and White is in charge around here? (Inspirations is blanketed in total silence) (sigh)

If this coffee maker will act right there will be some extra strong coffee coming up.

Anna May, loved that link to 'Moon River'. But for a morning wake-up call, what about:

Okay, coffee's ready. (sip) Ain't half bad but I suspect the Mendalla Man will want to crank up his own brew so y'all better get some of this one while you can. ;)

Good morning, Bill. I'll go ahead and try your fresh java.

Went to see Mamma Mia! last night. They did a great production for a community theatre. And so many young adults, some of whom I've worked with in other shows and plays. It was a treat.

Down the street they are beginning the process to put a new roof on one of the homes. Not too long before the melodies of Spanish speakers and Tejano music will ring out over the neighborhood. rr



All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

(puts on a fresh pot of dark roast coffee) Sure hope that last pot didn't harm Larry. Ya never can tell about those things, ya know. ;)

Keith's latest story 'Springtime Is For Lovers' is a first-rate quick read (1200 words). As the title suggests, it's in the 'Romance' category. Check it out.

Thanks, Bill! I'll check out Keith's story!

I'll grab a herbal tea here as it's getting too late for coffee! :)

Good music, Rumps. Here are a band whom I had the pleasure of meeting a few years ago when they were hired for the grand re-opening of my local bank branch. I think they deserve to make it big.



May I join you in an ultra-strong espresso?

My parent's house is finally on the market. We are hoping it sells quickly. My father's dementia is not going to get any better. It was a lot of work but the house looks great.

I am still helping them with things but no longer have to be over there all day working. Not sure what to do with some free time. I need to start working on my own house.

I hope all you fathers had a great father's day. I am grateful I got to spend another one with my dad. He had a good day and enjoyed the dinner I made. He was especially happy that I made him his favorite dessert, lemon meringue pie. I made one pie for everyone to share and one for him to take home.

I also baked some banana bread and chocolate chip cookies. I had a lot of nervous energy today.

I'll be curled up on the couch in the corner doing some reading.

Cheers Everyone!

Looked in the mirror earlier. My eyes looked strange - wait, no!

They look normal, not half swollen shut as was the case for the last three weeks!

Seriously, can allergy season be easing off, at last?

I really hope so, for myself and all the allergy sufferers here.

Good morning, poor, empty coffee house. I think I will just brew a pot of simple arabica to start the day. Feel free to have a cup if you please.

Off to the dentist in a couple of hours.

Cheers, all. flower

Nice to see you, Cynthia. Brewing a fresh pot now. Just had a sudden thunderstorm come through and put a stop to the lawn service mowing the grass in the neighborhood.

No appointments today. That's nice when that happens.

Brewing some coffee just to have a cup or two before it is hospital time. I'll be off for my regular immunotherapy.

Hope you're okay, Larry -@

Any coffee left for me? I've just had the longest couple of weeks at work, it's been madness. I need a good strong coffee and a couple of matchsticks for my eyes :)

Just waiting for my first cuppa java to cool enough to sip. Nothing planned for today. Just a regular Friday. I might do some shopping.

The forum is checked for new members and for birthdays. None today.

I'm waiting for the coffee to brew. It shouldn't be long.

Looks very empty here, but the coffee pot is hot and I could use a cup and just rest for a bit. A nice long Saturday that other than going out on the back porch to water plants in pots, I can work inside. As well as take breaks to read and listen to music. This place is very attractive, I wonder who did the interior decor....lots of very talented people here. My best to everyone.

Good morning to any who visit today. I've got coffee brewing. I'm ready for a cuppa java.

I've checked the forum and only one of my friends is having a birthday. That is Nicola. Also, no new members have signed on today.

Cheers, all. flower

Ape discover banana tea. Ape bring banana tea to Inspirations. Kettle is on. Want banana tea?

I actually did discover banana tea but didn't buy it. Doesn't sound like a flavour that appeals to me. Maybe someday for a lark.

More importantly, I biked to my FLTS (friendly local tea store) today. Got some exercise and refreshed my tea stash.

I am sure I have never heard of banana tea. I like bananas but perhaps not in tea.

I'll have a Coke, I need some caffeine. I've been spending time at the hospital while my Mom recovers. The process of selling their house and moving pushed her beyond what she could handle. It also seems to be speeding up my father's memory issues. Not sure what step is next.

I hope everyone is doing well. It's only mid-july but I am sick of the heat and humidity already.

Cheers.

Good morning. I see we have a new member today named ShovivSoftware. Wonder what is up with that? Perhaps we shall learn later.

My coffee pot is brewing. I should have a cuppa java ready momentarily.

No birthdays that I need to note this morning. So, have a good day, all.

Cheers. flower

Good morning, Larry! Hugs to you, Gill. That sounds like a whole lot of stress and worry on top of the exhaustion of having got your parents' house ready to sell. (hugs)

I'm not convinced by banana tea but a cup.of coffee will do nicely. ☕

Good morning, Cynthia. I am waiting for coffee, as well.

I see I have two birthdays to consider this morning. Beena and Bunz. The other two are not active.

I'll be heading over to one of my doctors this morning to consult about an infection. We shall see how that goes.

Hello Larry, I'll stick the coffee on today for you and anyone else who pops in.

Hope the doctor's visit went as well as possible? (hugs)

Good day to you, Cynthia. My doctor's visit was a success.

I've got another fresh pot of java brewing right now. I don't see any birthdays in the forum that I need to consider.

Going to another site soon to check out some contest results.

The pup met another pup on our walk just now. They hadn't seen each other in months but they do recognize each other.

The coffee is brewing. I am waiting for my first cuppa java.

I'm off to my oral surgeon for an inspection of my jaw this morning. We'll decide if the infection will need further anti-biotics.

Made up a couple big pitchers of iced tea, one sweetened, one not. There's lemon wedges for those who like that in their tea. Hot and muggy here with rain looming. Thinking about story ideas for the moon challenge and trying not to melt.
