Wow! Did I Just Have A Muddy Jungle Adventure! And All For A Cup Of Coffee LOL!
So, I got up this morning and started to make my daily double cappuccino when, no power! Under normal circumstances I would have simply fired up my camp stove and figured out the electricity problem later. But, I had just used up the last of the fuel before I got a power cord run to my cottage a few days ago.

I NEED my morning coffee or I'm not a happy camper. :(

There was only one thing to do, scale a muddy 150+ ft jungle hillside and see what was wrong. Picture the scene in Romancing the Stone where they slide down the hill in the rain and you'll have a good idea what it looks like where I live.

There were once steps cut into the hill but rain and mud had buried them. Fortunately, there were lengths of old rope and plenty of vines along the way to pull my self up. Still, it was so slippery I had to take my slippahs off so I could dig my toes in.

Finally, smeared in mud, I emerged at the top. The tenants of the upper house were home (they hadn't answered the phone before I began my climb) and we checked the outlet but everything seemed OK. There was NO way I was going to be able to go back the way I came so I had to go out to another road and go about a 1/2 mile around the valley I live in to get to my driveway.

As I started down the road, two nasty little ankle biters came barking after me and the uglier one actually bit me in the calf! Damn! Covered in mud, biten by a dog and still no coffee!

Ah well, it wasn't raining and as I turned the corner, I saw this old guy that looked like Santa Claus get out of his truck. It was Melvin the Honey Man whom I hadn't seen for at least 3 or 4 years and had no idea that I now lived around the corner from. We chatted for about 15 min and I've now been invited to help him harvest and learn beekeeping. Woo-hoo! I've always wanted to do that! As I said good bye, I mentioned to him that perhaps the reason I had lost power this morning was so that he and I could meet and by the time I got home, my power would be back on.

Well guess what? It was!

Now I'm sitting here enjoying a beautiful morning and a delicious cup of fresh brewed cappuccino. Ahhhhh...life us good!

Jeez, and I thought I was addicted to caffeine, LOL !


I know what you mean tho', just gotta have that morning cup...



I agree with what you said about meeting the Honey guy,
that was a desire your heart was holding and the Universe conspired to bring it about,
altho' it took a bit of rousing you out of your ususual methods :-)


Good luck with the Honey ! hf

Yep - and all for a reason!

I can't wait to work with the Honey Man. He's been beekeeping since he was 5 and his dad bought him his first hive - he's now 67. The man knows his bees. I've also been invited to the weekly beekeepers meeting next Sunday. Kauai is perhaps one of the only places on the planet where the bees are still healthy. To heck with solid gold, we've got liquid gold here!

Look how much you accomplished before you even had a cup of coffee. Should tell you something.

LOL! I have real life love for you! Awesome.

I'm pretty jealous of where you live, it sounds great. Urban jungles sound fun but they're not.

True but, I'm not very happy and friendly without it - probably why that dog bit me. LOL!

And, if it wasn't for my determination to fix things and have my coffee, I never would have scaled that muddy cliff. :)

You should have grabbed the dog with a capture stick. Tied one of those little barrels around its neck (a thermos one) and sent him for help.

Maybe Starbucks sent him out looking for you?

so how did the poor dog fare after the caffein deprived lady got bit. Is he now a doggie rug in the bathroom--lol.


(does anyone still say "Rumpus"?)

He, he - great day! I'm almost 51 and I can still scale a muddy cliff with nothing more than old ropes, vines and my toes. Wonder how many Xbox playing, young, couch potatoes could say the same.tounge

Maybe next time you'll just have cold coffee? Should work just as good.

OMG! You can't be serious - do you have even the slightest clue as to how coffee is brewed? In order to have cold coffee, it first has to start out hot.
