Most of the jobs and activities I get involved in usually have the capability of leading to bodily injury whether it minor or major injury. Writing is the one area that I thought would be exempt from this phenomenon.
Recently, while working late at night I developed a hankering (craving for those not raised in the Deep South) for some coffee. A little background on my coffee drinking. I normally don’t drink coffee unless the mercury is in the thirty degree range or lower, much less during the heat of the hottest summer in recent history. Couple these things with the fact that I only think coffee is worth drinking if it is made in a percolator at a lower than boiling temperature for a long time.
Now that you have the background information, on with the story.
The only percolator coffee pot I own is the one in our camping gear that is stored in a small trailer outside. I put my shoes on and proceeded outside to retrieve the coffee pot. I opened the trailer and pulled out the ice chest and a couple of tents to gain access to our chuck box that held the treasured percolator. I headed for the prize and then all of a sudden the world was all wrong. In an instant I was out of the trailer on my back wondering what the heck just happened. I picked myself up and took inventory just to make sure everything was still there. Everything was there and even picked up a nice long cut on my leg from the bolts that hold the license plate on. That’s when it hit me! Normally when I enter the trailer it is attached to my truck. With nothing to hold the tongue of the trailer down it promptly expelled me from reaching my goal, but only temporarily. I did finally retrieve the coffee pot and the desired mug of coffee, and oh how good it was.
All for a cup of coffee!
Now to the article I am writing!
All with my cup of coffee!
For those of you that own firearms, train hard and well and teach those that do not know how.
Be good stewards of the right to bear arms, for we are the last line of defense against tyranny.
