Last time Charlie made us a kind gift of a coffee grinder, brought roasted beans, prepared coffee for the group, got us addicted and then said, "by the way you have to buy a $200 coffee roaster and a new $200+ coffee maker.
Jeff, if Charlie doesn't volunteer, I'll send you that big mooring chain in the garage and a shotgun to coax him to come make coffee for us, and shoot pictures and show and tell.
I don't yet know if I will be able to make it ... I certainly would like to.
However, if I am not able to make it down for this one, I could possibly send some coffee down with Jeff & Eva.
But I have to say for the record, I am bit concerned by your statement about pushing quality coffee makers and roasters. I don't want to be perceived as some kind of coffee pimp or pusher. If in fact I were some kind of "dealer" or "pusher" or something I would technically be trying to get you hooked on the coffee beans and then sell them when you needed more. I may know people, who know people though... :cool:
Hope to see you, will let you know.
We love our pusher. Please c-o-m-e b-a-c-k.
We need you.
We've got the shakes.

You know, no one has begged me to bring more bacon ice cream ....
I don't have my schedule yet, but if I'm available I'll be there. I did a lot of 35mm shooting and printing the last 2 months. I'll have to tell you all about my chance meeting with my favorite photographer.
I'm late posting to this thread because every time I read the words "Bacon Ice Cream" the retching disturbs my typing....:)
You will be okay. Try to stay in control. Hope your schedule works out. Please pass the info on to Bill Jones if he is not reading Apug.
