Boondocker's Coffeemaker

I broke my beloved Melitta coffee carafe. You know, the kind that takes #6 cone filters & makes 10 cups of drip coffee without benefit of electricity? As it had been quite a while since I'd had that particular variety of klutz-attack, I was quite surprised to find these are no longer readily available in stores. I bought the one I broke years ago at the supermarket, so that was the first place I looked. Nope, and not WalMart, KMart or Target either. A friend nicely gifted me with a still-available single cup version, with a really neat cup. But my search continued.
I did find it on line, though, at ACE HARDWARE, and ordered one. It came today and water is boiling for coffee. YAY!
So what's up with the retail assumption that we all have lots of counter space to spare and can't pour water???

I'm visiting friends in North Carolina. Yesterday we were playing music on the deck and these blooms were buds. Today they're beginning to bloom. I'm wearing a teeshirt outdoors - when just a few days ago it was jacket, scarf, hat and gloves. I like this lots better, and hope it stays. Although - I'l be heading back to Virginia Thursday and the almanac predicts snow there throughout March. I will soak up today's sunshine though.
Oh - the tee says
"Humans were meant to live in a pack
So each could scratch the other's back
or wash it clean, and that's why each
Of us has spots we cannot reach."

Going Nowhere

Another motorhome is in the parking lot with me! A couple who do the same work I do and also travel by motorhome. We don't normally do the same stores, so I was very glad of the reunion.
This pic is what I woke up to, so I don't know if the rest of the team will come. It could be good for a day off.
