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…
