It's 0530, my bourbon pecan coffee just finished brewing and the sun is still absent on the horizon... I reach into the cupboard for the only mug worthy of the contents about to fill the pristine looking, thick-walled orange chalice. After filling it with the life juice and a touch of cream, I sip slowly, while perusing the newspaper to catch up on current events. My first cup is finished upon the completion of last story and, of course, the suduko puzzle. I then make my way back to the spring of life to refill my LogOx mug with its perfectly sized handles that fit the large hands of this hard working American. Upon the second and final fill up, I make my way outside to the porch, where I watch as the sun, in all her beauty, rises over the river. After sitting down and taking everything in, I feel the brisk wind and see nature come alive. Geese in the river, songbirds and groundhogs in the yard, frost all around, and the heron stalking fish along the shoreline. A sight that would surely make Cinderella and any goose hunter jealous. It's about 0625 now, and I'm near the end of my wonderful morning start. As I finish my last sip of coffee, I bring the hefty mug to my lap and push off the rocking chair to head back inside. I open the door and momentarily turn around to cheers the day with the only thing worthy of such an honored gesture... My American-made LogOx coffee mug. With a LogOx mug and a can-do attitude, there's nothing you can't do. Stay thirsty and strive to be better, my friends!
