Coffee at the house…

Well, its no secret that we love Coffee at the house. My wife didnt like it very much at first but she came around after a while. Now that she’s Pregnant with # 3, she cain’t hardly stand it. Anyway, I thought I would show ya’ll our coffee makers. Here they are, in all their glory (with one on the stove cookin).

When we first got here to Monterrey, we bought a brand new Coffee maker in Texas. 50 someodd dollar piece a crap that didn’t work for only ’bout three months! (we have always had bad luck with coffee maker in the past). As I was cussin that dang Electric coffee maker, my eyes fell on a gool ol’ friend that I had forgotten, that my wife had turned into a flower pot for the Kitchen. I call him: Ol’ Faithful.

Thats right baby, he’s a good ol’ fashioned, beat up, chiped up, porcline blue, cowboy coffee makin sonofagun. He’ been with me for at least, the past 10 yrs, and has brewed many a campfire cup-a-joe. Anyway, out came the flowers and in went the coffee and we have been drinkin it thattaway ever since. Now, Ol’ Faithful dont make very much coffee, so we bought a twin called Ol’ Blue (he’s cookin Coffee on the stove, thus he’s not in the picture). but still when you have Mission teams at your house every summer for breakfeast, even they can’t keep up. So, this Christmas, my mom & dad decided to buy us OL’ HOSS. Thats right.

OL’ HOSS holds up to 38 cups of fire brewed joe in one cookin. yes, I said fire brewed. No more of that Electric made coffee (unless he’s made from down below). anyone out there that likes it tongue blisterin hot? Boiling? Oh yea. He’s from Cabelas and is just waitin to cook some up. I cain’t hardly wait myself. Now, there is one more worth mentionin. We call him El Rayito.

Now, El Rayito, he’s the Fastest Coffee maker in Mexico. He’s the only electric coffee maker I like. The coffee he makes is dang HOT and dang FAST! Burnt my tongue many a times with his coffee. Anyway, he was a SWEET gift from my mother in law and he cooks! the only problem is he’s an Ol’ fart (60’s I think), and his wires arent quiet what they used to be. They up and burned one day. so we are gonna fix him soon. So, if ya come and visit us someday, I guarentee that ya’ll will see one of these sweet daddies in action.

Well, we have started a new tradition for this New Year. On our fridge, we have lots of pictures of our family & friends from all over the world. At every meal, one of the kids picks a picture and we pray for that family before the meal! So, we are praying for three different familys or friends three time a day. it gives great structure to our prayer life as a family and the kids are getting to know all of our friends they don’t “Know”. I praise the LORD GOD Almighty for my wife and her wonderful Ideas.

Let me preface this post with: I am writing this with no one in particular in mind. this is a GENERAL Observation. Period. the end. if your offended, click on the little red “x” in the top right hand corner. If you think I lack manners, please remember this is my Blog.

 

Right and Wrong. Thank you. I’m sorry. GOD bless you. can you PLEASE pass the salt? Excuse me. Flushing the toilet. Asking for things instead of taking things. Saying hello, how are you? and saying goodbye. Turning off cell phones in church. NO Profanity. Paying attention. sharing, with joy. Serving others. Those are just a few things that I could think of right off hand. If ya have any more let me know.

First of all, I want to say thank you, to ALL of you out there that don’t do Jack, to teach your kids Manners. You are making our kids look like the best kids in the WORLD (and they are not)! People will think our kids are so well behaved and mannered (they are learning), and your kids… well, I’ll not get nasty.

Dang, Where to start. lets start with Manners. Manners are a thing that is taught, not learned. It is like doctrine. you don’t read the Bible or read a book on doctrine, and that’s it. It needs to be taught to you, you have to learn it. It is repetition and practice that instills this discipline & knowledge. unfortunately for most people in the Americas (yes, Plural) it is something that they would rather not think about and rather not TEACH their kids. Do parents now-days think their kids will just “Pick Up” manners? from whom? the kids in the Playground? HA! I think we all know what goes on in the playground (I learned all my high school Spanish there) Kids don’t teach manners, they exude bad behavior! Is bad behavior acceptable now? Since when do we not give a rip? Where else are they gonna learn? TV, movies, church?? some of the worst I’v known have been church kids (yes, even yours truly, before I was instructed) We now have Absolute Uncontrolled behavior. Think I’m a little extreme? go to the park and watch and listen. See how the kids treat their parents (FAULT of the parents ) and other kids. Go to the grocery store, a school, a church, wal-mart, McDonalds, Starbucks, Anyplace and pay attention and I promise, you will be appalled. what a cryin shame, that parents don’t love their kids enough to teach them manners. Can you imagine in 50 yrs.? Our kid’s will be anomalys growing up (GOD I Pray). well, at the end of the day, I recon all of the blame lies squarley on the shoulders of the parents. Please teach your kids manners and change the world a little bit at a time.
