Visiting over Coffee

 

Can you meet me for coffee today? A couple of my friends and I enjoy getting together for “coffee” on occasion. Except, none of us drink coffee. That’s okay though, our favorite coffee shop makes marvelous drink, Italian Soda. I have no idea what’s in it, it is topped with whipped cream, I just know it’s good, and full of calories. But that’s okay, it’s also a cold drink, which is fine for summer, but not for winter. In the winter, I have tea. They have a wonderful selection.

Of course, we generally have a biscotti while we’re there. Would you like one?

When you and I have coffee, the first thing I will do is breathe deep and inhale the intoxicating aroma of your coffee. I may not drink it but I love the smell. Go figure.

What can I tell you? I’m not planning any travels in the near future. Although I would love to hear about your trips, either those planned, or your recent experience. Laurel over at Alphabet Soup, who gave me the idea for this little coffee meet is planning a trip to Italy. It will be so fun to hear about it when she returns.

I take it back. I have traveled recently. The drive was only forty-five minutes, but we traveled back in time to see the dinosaurs.

We, are me and my cousins Jared and Teresa. Jared is my second cousin,(I think) and his mother Teresa, is my cousin by marriage and my friend by choice.

Jared has special needs and we had a wonderful time “visiting” with the dinosaurs. He got to pet a baby dinosaur and bought a dinosaur shirt.

 My favorite picture of the day is one I don’t have a copy of. It is a picture of Jared sitting on a dinosaur, yes it is photo shopped. The best part though, they also took out his wheelchair. Jared has often made comments about something he’d do, or would like to do if he could. However, it’s something well out of his reach. To have a picture of him “doing” something he enjoys with no wheelchair in sight is fantastic to me.

After visiting the dinosaurs we went to one of the three Italian restaurants in Krebs, a nearby town. Krebs is known, at least in Oklahoma, as Little Italy. Anyone who visits wants to eat at one of those three places. I think the food is more Italian/American than authentic Italian, but it’s still unique and tasty.

Thanks to Laurel Regan at Alphabet Soup, for having coffee with her readers this morning and giving me this idea. This post is part of the Ultimate Blog Challenge.

What would you tell me if we had coffee?

What is your favorite hot beverage?

Have you traveled recently?

Please let me know in the comments. I love visiting with you.

    I also love to visit over coffee. First, I love coffee, but it seems like a great way to have a meeting to catch up, share life, discuss issues, etc. Thanks for sharing your story Nita. I’m no longer allowed to eat Biscotti (sugar and carbs) and I do miss it!

    The biscotti looks yummy and though I prefer chai, I will take a cuppa coffee anyday too.. just plain coffee for me though. Jurassic Quest sounds like fun.. regarding travel recently, yes, we had a week long road-trip during the holiday break and loved it (we visited the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Antelope Canyon which is just other-worldly)

    That is such a sweet picture, both of your cousin and the dino. I’ve never he. It’s been years since I heard of Krebs, Oklahoma. Have never been – but, have you been to Lovera’s Market? I used to live outside of Morrow, Arkansas, which was just over the border from Stillwell, OK.

      If you ever make it to Krebs, you want to visit one of the restaurants, and Lovera’s Market. The little store is a gem. Thanks for stopping by.

      The Biscotti is great, and worth the drive into town to get one. Tea? Sure, you and I can have tea, the coffee shop has some great blends. Thanks for stopping by.
