More Mugs Updated 

Following up on yesterday’s post about coffee. Here is the story of our very large coffee cup collection, which I use for soup or ice cream since I don’t drink coffee. Ron will only buy mugs in places where he actually went in and bought coffee. No online shopping for this man! So even though…

Trip Log 2.1

No, I don’t alway pack light. This is my stack of luggage for our current trip: large suitcase, book bag full of study materials for my Spring Study Program, hanging bag with more formal clothes, large total with most of my cycling gear (lots of layers for warm through very cold weather) , small tote…

Coffee Mug

Back in the early nineties, we met an OU Law professor. A sweet young thing (as in mid twenties. Yes, she was teaching law at age 24) from Nigeria. We moved to Tennessee a year later and she went on to teach at Harvard Law. Many years later she taught at Minnesota Law. While at…

Obligatory Mug Post

On our recent trip, we acquired three new You Are Here mugs: New Jersey, Maryland, and Alabama.  We missed Illinois, but hope to get that one plus Michigan on our trip in April. Some folks collect mugs by trading them and buying them off eBay. That’s fun for them them, but not for us. We…

Trip Log 1.2

Star Date 3/7/16 Monday  This is how we do conference calls on the road. Notice my fun colored pencils for my Bible study and the postcards for the kids and grandkids! I worked with my headphones on while Rachel and Ron talked with engineering and marketing back in Texas. I wore headphones because their conversations are…

Time To Travel

“February Favorites” is in the bag, so it’s time to write some new blog articles. But what shall I write about? I told Ron that I think we should hit the road. Don’t you agree? Traveling always gives me fun things to write about. We’ve been home more than three months and I’ve run out…

New Mugs!

I haven’t shared any of our new mugs lately because, well, we hadn’t gotten any. Many of the cities we traveled to lately were places we had been to before; we already had the mugs for those cities.  Ron recently traveled to Toronto and bought that mug. In his latest trip, he went to Japan.…

Two New Mugs

We traveled a bunch last month, but only got two new mugs. Neither from places we visited!   We drove through a very small part of New Mexico. None of the Starbucks in towns we went through had the NM mug. A few days later, our housesitter called to tell us there was a package…

Even More Mugs

Yep. We have added to the collection. Five new mugs in July: The Hamptons, Indianapolis, Austin, San Antonio, and Texas! I doubt we will get any new ones this month. We already have Denver and Colorado. The Texas mugs came out early last month. New Jersey also came out around the 7th. Unfortunately, we could…
