My turn! I'm enjoying myself in this forum a great deal. From the laughs
to the sorrows, it's a pleasure to meet all of you. That said, I've been
caught up in all the offerings here, so I've decided to add yet another.
It's not coffee, but a cup. I have designed a cup, well, big ole mug,
with pottery artist Rita Shields as thank you gifts for several clients
and a few friends. The luck of the kiln was with us this year and I was
able to have more than I counted on or needed so I'm putting one up here
for my Holiday offering.
I have created a new folder called Coffee Support Gear for cups, and...
Wait a minute - Just got the news - sometime during the night I became a
great uncle. My sister, the new grandma just texted me the news. My baby
sister is a grandma - I must be old... Pretty cool, though!
Back to the cups... OK, New folder, "Support Gear", you know, for all

morning, I'll priority mail the cup off to the winner.
So - to reiterate:
Email me off line
Include your mailing address.
AHA! Another idea... A contest is forming in my head... Send something
that will make me laugh with your post - now this part is totally
subjective on my part - and I'll send that person a bag of my homemade
maple sugar. I use coffee bags to give it away in. This has been a
Despres family tradition for years now so someone will be welcomed into
my family by making me laugh. Now, I'm not above a bit of low brow
humor, but I will post that which makes me laugh here.
OK - To reiterate the reiteration
Email me off line before 6 AM Wednesday the 19th.
Include your mailing address
Include humor for some of my homemade maple chunks - This part is not
So, go to http://www.homeroasting.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemIdx20&g2_navId=x777b9ff9
and see the cups and make me laugh.
