Well, all the caves I can think of, and have actually been to visit, are Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, and Inner Space Caverns in Georgetown, Texas. They are both awesome to see all the cave formations. It’s amazing how the beautiful structures are underground, and learn how they were formed, and discovered.

These photos are of a couple of things from the gift shop in Carlsbad. First is a silver charm for my bracelet, and it is a bat. The next photos are of a coffee mug that we use all the time. There is a picture of a flying bat, and it says “Bats Need Friends Too!”, and the name Carlsbad Caverns National Park.

I know I had some photos of Inner Space but can’t remember where they are. It was years ago when we went, and was before phone cameras were a normal thing to have with you.

And this is interesting … My parents took their honeymoon at Carlsbad Caverns! This was in August 1944, and I have the little souvenir booklet my mom filled out. It is leather with a tie/strap on the left. It is embossed with a picture of a Native American on a white horse in the middle, and says “Honeymoon Book”, and Carlsbad Cavern N. Mex.

Hope everyone is staying safe and having a wonderful weekend! 🙂

Poem # 25

“A Purple Panic”

~

As purple panic fuels your fear,

Hobgoblins are drawing near

Bats and banshees hover close

Ready to administer a frightful dose

Now purple panic has set in

The night of terror will begin

Hope you enjoy my thoughts about coffee. Thanks so much for coming by.

So, what’s to say about coffee?

I like coffee a lot. I start out the morning with a hot cup of it, with the Coffeemate French Vanilla cream flavoring powder. Sometimes I do get the liquid kind. I use half and half cream sometimes, too. Yum!

In the afternoon, I’ll have another cup of coffee, and then right before bed, I’ll have another. The caffeine doesn’t bother me at all, and in fact is so relaxing, it helps me sleep good. It’s always been this way.

Funny, I’ve never had one of those specialty kinds of coffee, like latte, espresso, or any of the many other kinds of coffee. I don’t even know what all they are called. I did have one tiny sip of espresso once. Never wanted another.

I like my coffee really hot, so have to keep warming it up. I haven’t wanted to try it iced or cold, but coffee ice cream is good.

Here’s my usual coffee mugs. Well, the one with the alien is mine. I bought that when we visited Roswell NM. I also use the red mug a lot.  The one with the bat is my husband’s coffee mug. My daughter bought it for him when they visited Carlsbad Caverns NM.

The next photo is of my Keurig coffeemaker, and also my antique drip coffee pot, which makes excellent coffee. 🙂
