Coffee Up & Carry On...

Coffee Up & Carry On... I love my Coffee...But I'm NOT like most people nowadays! I like My Coffee...Strong & Smooth yet Bold,  and most of the time.... Straight up, Black no Cream or Sugar! Now my Dad on the other hand, he had a little Coffee with his COW!!! I use to tease him that I took after the Norwegian side & and he took after the Scottish & British side! His coffee looked more  like tea with milk! I've got a couple of great Coffee recipes below for you to try below....
This is a special Photo....Ornery's Dad is second from the right! Taken during a cattle drive. The saying is a spin off from what my Dad shared with me one morning a few months before he died!

Dad & I were having coffee with his friends one morning. As his friends were leaving, Dad leaned over and said to me in a very solemn tone the statement listed below. Dad's words sounded so serious, they caught me off guard. It made me feel so sad, yet strangely closer to him in that moment of time. I was so sad, that I felt a chill of doom! Very unsettling for sure!  He usually was the jester of the crowd. Dad had been sick lately, and soon after, we found out he had Cancer! He passed away that year at Christmas. He left his mark on this world & my Heart!
