Well, that's a bummer

Cowboy Blob tagged me for a coffee mug meme (inspired by this post at Tam's blog). Unfortunately, this is bad timing because all but two of my mugs have been packed away for the impending house change. So I was thinking I could at least use my phone to take a picture of them, but I can't even do that, because I packed up all my USB cables when I put away everything computer-related except for my laptop itself.

The two mugs still out are a regular mug my grandfather-in-law gave me. It has pictures of an eagle and the U.S. flag on it with the words, "FREEDOM IS NOT FREE." He got it through an organization called American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial.

The other mug out right now is a 20-ounce stainless steel travel mug that I bought at the Werner headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska, during my brief stint as a truck driver. I use it every day for my morning coffee on the drive in to work.

I do have quite a few other mugs, and in fact, my wife likes to collect mugs and hang them from display racks in the kitchen and dining room. One of my favorites was purchased for me by my father when he visited Roswell, New Mexico. It has a picture of an alien wearing a cowboy hat and the words, "You don't scare me...I'm from Texas."

Maybe when the move is over and things get unpacked I can post a picture, but for now this is the best that I can do.

Oh yeah, I'm supposed to tag some other bloggers, but I don't like to tag, so if you want to join in, have at it.

  1. I don't have a personal mug. I never thought about it before but I drink coffee out of a 44 ounce plastic tumbler.

    Next time I'm in roswell I'll look for that mug.
