Coolest Coffee Mug

My Dad made me the coolest mug for my birthday. Since he has retired, he has really gotten into woodworking. He made the kids kaleidoscopes for Christmas and I got this super cool mug.

Handmade wooden coffee mug


It is the neatest thing. It's made of mahogany (a log aged 16 years from Peru, evidently) and oak reportedly from Andrew Jackson's home. I didn't take a picture, but it is even signed on the bottom.

How cool is that? Its got a stainless liner and a travel lid and a shiny finish that shows off the wood grain, but providing some protection from moisture. And on top of all that, it kept my tea warm enough to drink yesterday afternoon. Yes, tea in the afternoon to rehydrate myself after all the espresso in the morning.

And since for the last three weeks, I've been the only one respecting the kids' basketball league request of not bringing beverages to the games, I'll be bringing my coffee is the coolest mug ever now!

BUT, YOU SHOULDN'T BE READING THIS BECAUSE HELEN IS RIGHT! CHANGE THE 39 BURNT OUT LIGHTBULBS IN THIS HOUSE OR ALL FINGERING IS OFF THE MENU!

BEAU! I hear you're NOT CHANGING THE LIGHTBULBS! Now Heather's getting all depressed and upset. You owe her flowers AND THE CHANGING OF THE LIGHT BULBS!

Beau said...

6 bulbs left to change, plus the two that cost $72.

You should know that your light bulb fiasco has caused Steve to change ALL burnt out bulbs IMMEDIATELY lest I blog that too. I love public shame. :D A bulb burnt out in the kitchen and it was changed within 5 minutes. :D Your pain=my gain. Well, and the constant heckling brings cheer to my day. ;D

I'm glad that good has been able to come of all this.

Wow, can I go as far to say that my actions have caused the world to get brighter?
