Topic: The cat did it. (14 msgs / 257 lines)
1) From: James Gundlach
Late this morning I was in working on the computer and heard the Rocky 
start.  I assumed that someone was making coffee.  Phone rang and in 
the background I heard the grinder continuing to run.  Got off the 
phone went to the kitchen, nobody was there, except the cat who was 
standing there watching this mound of ground coffee grow in front of 
the Rocky.  I had just filled the hopper and there is about enough 
beans left in the hopper for one more espresso.  One of the 
disadvantages of getting rid of the doser is that it leaves the switch 
exposed so that a cat can turn it on.  I think I'll keep less coffee in 
the hopper from now on.

So Jim, how many espressos did you have to drink to use all the pre-ground 
coffee? You probably won't sleep for a week! :)

Great story. And I'm sure when you questioned your cat about it he/she simply looked at you and
reminded you that it's their house and he/she's just letting you use the counter space anyway!:-)

All too soon returning to Vancouver WA USA, but not today!

I've had three more than the usual two plus lunch was a bowl of vanilla 
ice cream with two double shots poured over it.

Jim,
I'm sure your cat was just resentful of your, ahem, dogged pursuit of coffee
excellence.

Greetings and felinitations!
"Dogged pursuits" aside, puns are not nearly so dog-gone funny as you
seem to think.  Besides the part of Jim's story that amused me most
was the lesson learned from having too many beans in the kitty.

Yeah, I'm sure he's going to be hounded about it for a long time.

Jim, you blew it.  You should have simply placed it in the sl90 and allowed 
the cat to brew espresso, it is what it was after in the first place.  Cats 
are very discerning animals.

Dan, cat's I know are much to lazy to use an SL90. They demand at least a SM5k! Especially since a
Catfe' Creama is their brew of choice:-) Oh, and did you realize most typical cats do not prefer
Typica but go catatonic over Catura... cream no sugar, with just a nip of catnip added of course.
MM;-)
Not worrying how to pack 142# Kona greens, 3# raw macadamia nuts, 3# raw Maui sugar, a Monkey Pod
wood salad bowl set etc etc etc evenly between 4 large suitcases until tomorrow! Leaving paradise in
25hrs :-( Simply enjoying a delish after dinner cruise cup of ISH:-)

The sad thing about cats and coffee is that once they get through the
ritual, roasting, grinding, brewing, adding their favorite foreign
substances, they can only drink it one little tongue full at a time and end
up drinking the stuff cold.  How catastrophic.  Some might even say
cataclysmic.  Cat cha later.
Cat-ching.

Jim,
I have to confess that I thought I'd wrapped up the bad puns award
hands-down with my post.  By the time I finished reading yours, I
realized I was sadly mistaken. The tail you wove was sorta catchy,
though.

Jim,
I have met Mike's cats!  He knows cats.  Now if you could just teach the cat
how to pull shots and deliver you will have it made!
