MY BLOG IS BACK. I wrote about my full-time RV life, my time-travel excursions to other centuries, and whatever else came to hand, for a decade. Took 2017 off from blogging completely. OK, vacation's over. New crafts. New states colored in on the map. Retired. Sold the big motorhome. Traveling light and lean (for me ;) ) in a minivan. Still changing yards regularly. So hello - listen to some music, read some adventures.

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???
