javascript bakelite coffee canisters vintage retro spoons

I need to get with the program, haven’t update my site for a while. The new Newport shop is taking a lot of my time and energy. In a totally good way.

Caffiene helps me crack on.  And today I might use a bit of TBT, code for ThrowBack Thursday.
An excuse to drag up a file from the archives.


Coffee is real good when you drink it gives you time to think. It’s a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.

Way too much coffee. But if it weren’t for the coffee, I’d have no identifiable personality whatsoever.

Sadly here are the empty buckets.

My son came up with this title, clever little guy. Especially since he didn’t know there was such a thing. But then he broke one of the handles on my set of 5, whatever, now I have an even set of 4. And some spares.
