Mr. Coffee died this morning
He passed at 5:55 am, actually he was a Black and Decker, but a fine machine that will be missed. Luckily, I always keep a spare just in case this happens.

10. He passed in his sleep
so as far as I know it was painless, at least for him. When there wasn't any response to my wake up call I went to check, finding his cold dead corpse.
Services and burial will be wednesday when he goes out with the garbage. The family request that in lieu of flowers donations to be made to the Mr. coffee memorial.

14. Black and Decker? I believe you can return those to Sears.
There is a guy I know who goes to garage sales looking for old tools of a certain type, because Sears has some kind of return/trade in deal, or maybe a lifetime warranty...

16. I'm confused, I thought Mr. coffee died in 1999
He had a lifetime batting average of .325, too!

20. "Get out of bed, Mr. Coffee's dead,
The morning's looking bright,
And your shrink ran off to Europe
And didn't even write
And your husband wants to be...a girl...

Sometimes you wanna GO
Where everybody knows your name
And they're always glad you came
You wanna be where you can see
Our troubles are all the same
And you wanna go where
Everybody knows your naaaaaaaame"

:-)

23. Are you kidding?
I'm in the sticks, the hoot owls have sex with the chickens here, that's why I always keep a spare on hand. If this one goes down it has a spare as well. I won't go without my morning cup.
