Instant Coffee Never Tasted so Good!

Instant Coffee Never Tasted so Good!


No, My coffee pot is not broken.  We are not out camping somewhere..... We just returned home from Wrightsville Beach, where we had the pleasure of seeing Cinnamon Wright & Zoe & Tish Lloyd again.  Not only that, but the one & only Roger Mucci was in town, and his hotel room just happen to be next door to ours!  How lucky was that?

Why the instant coffee, you ask?  Well, the hotel we stayed in had coffee pots in the room.... but no coffee (oh, that's a blog for another day).  Roger (my husband) never leaves home without Instant Coffee just in case, and so this morning, I had the pleasure of having instant coffee with Uncle Rog (Tan Man's new title for Mucci), while watching the sun break through the early morning clouds!

I'm not a fan of instant coffee, in fact, it is bitter & well..... GROSS! But I gotta tell you..... Instant Coffee with Roger Mucci is much sweeter! Breakfast was even better!

I love meeting up with my Activerain Family and Uncle Rog is always a pleasure.... especially in real life! Next time, we'll work on "real" coffee and more efficient transportation!

Margaret - It was absolutely wonderful!  I've had the pleasure of meeting Tish & Cinnamon a few times, but this was my first meeting with Mucci!  He is fabulous!!!!!!

Janis - It was a great time.  We couldn't make it down to Sunset Beach with everyone (company in town today for the holiday), but the time we had was perfect!  Roger Mucci is just as wonderful in "Real Life" as I always knew he would be!

Amy, No doubt having "Uncle Rog" around makes life a lot more fun.  Our schedules haven't synched up lately for his Cincinnati trips (business trips for me keep getting in the way), but we'll catch up with him again soon, and see you too before we blink a few times.

Sounds like a great time was had by all! Uncle Rog as you call him starts my day a few times a week as he is in a time zone before Oregon wakes up!

Amy, I'm not a fan of instant coffee at all, but I'll pretty much take caffeine any way I can get it. Sounds like you guys had a blast... Hope some tome frees up for me so I can enjoy an AR meet up soon.

Thom - It is amazing.  When I first joined, I never thought I would end up with life-long friends, but that's just what happened.  I meet up with Rainers every chance I get!  For future reference, You could have left a link in my post and I would not have complained ;-)  I'll head over and check out your post!

Bliz - Uncle Rog was just as wonderful as I knew he would be!  I can't wait to meet up with you next month!  Shrimp Burgers at Big Oak?

Rob - Same here,  His blog is often the first post I read each morning, and it was an honor & a pleasure to meet him!

Donna - One day...... I will end up in Colorado or maybe you will make it to the East Coast!  Until then, Virtual Friends for sure!

Nick - I can barely choke down the instant stuff (I have to add instant cappucino), but it is definitely better than nothing ;-) Having a cup with Roger Mucci was pretty darn cool!  One day, I plan to meetup with you!

The need for coffee stimulation never seems to leave anyone regardless where they go.

Hi Amy,

I read Mr. Bond's post about your trip.

Great weekend. Looks like all had a great time.

And I like to have my coffee in the morning as well.

I just don't leave the house "WITH instant coffee". LOL

Glad all are back safe and sound.

Best, Clint McKie

Ha ha ha!  Sir Rog was definitely transported in style.  So glad you all had an amazing meet up.  I can't wait to meet him in person!  I have to admit, this gives a whole new "twist" to your usual Coffee with Amy blogs!

Good Morning Dear Daughter,


Sorry I couldn't join you but I'm glad you were able to go with the family.  Maybe I can catch up here at the office before lunch and you can tell me all about it at lunch.

Amy, Shrimp, or clam, or scallop, or many choices, and not one of them bad :)  I'm planning on hitting them up more than once, never know how long it will be before the next visit!  Bill

So cool that Roger was able to make the trip and visit with you guys. By the way, I saw your hubby's Facebook picture of the traffic and his comment, "This sucks!!!".

So, naturally, I had to make it better for you guys.

Kittens and rainbows make everything better..... right?!!!
