Topic: counting cracks (3 msgs / 75 lines)
1) From: John M. Howison
I'd like to join this debate, which promises to improve the quality of
coffee on the range, but I am too busy in Texas, counting my steers.   I
count bovine feet, then divide by four, and it works every time.
Until the listers reach a consensus about counting cracks, I shall continue
to enjoy cowboy coffee:  One mug of Maxwell House grounds, one silver
dollar, and one syrup-bucket of water suspended over the campfire.  When the
dollar breaks through the crema and floats to the top, the coffee is ready.
If the list insists, further inanities are available.

Hm.  My old father-in-law (rest his soul) taught me to make that with a 
few centavos and to keep the silver dollar in my pocket.  He said if the 
herd stampedes and you have to abandon the bucket you'll still be able 
to buy a shave and a hot bath with that silver dollar when you get to 
town but the centavos wouldn't get you a cup of coffee...
