Welcome to The EX Café 04.02.2017
Wow, first in. Should I take a seat by the window? Or by the counter? Hello Pops, I could use a cup of coffee.
Good morning Gregg,
I'm having some trouble with the site today....i'll do my best here....
No Problem! Happy to be here!
Wow! Good morning....what a time I had getting this place open this morning. c2q should be pretty proud of me today. It sorta (I said sorta) looks like I might have gotten it. I'm sure something isn't right, but at least I can find the place now.
So let me start this morning off by informing my friends here about my schedule today....I have a very dear friend of mine that is moving today, and she and her brother have asked for my help starting @ noon today in a town about 20 minutes away. The pair of them both seem to think that we will be involved for about 3 - 3.5 hours max. If my experience in life has taught me one thing, it is if it is scheduled for 3.5 hours, it is most likely going to take 6 hours....
So, that my friends means that from approximately 11:30 this morning, until probably 4:30 this evening....I will be trusting this mottley crowd to not trash the place too badly and to help yourselves to the open bar, and try to not have any brawls or catfights while I'm out rescuing a "damsel" in distress...
With that being said, let's get some food and coffee going here this morning...
Good morning, Pops! It's awesome that you're helping a friend move today! I'm sure that everyone will be om thier best behavior while the cafe is unmanned. I'd help out, but we took delivery of our gorgeous new bike yesterday, and the weather is nice.....you KNOW what that means, right?
I loved the jokes!!!
I'm drinking whatever you're pouring, as long as it's caffeinated!
Good morning susan_m . You are rocking your quit! I'm so happy for you. How is the new scooter going?
Took delivery yesyerday and we are taking her out today. I promised you a picture.....:)
This is a week of envy for me....my brother in the canaries, you on that new scooter....whahhhh whahhhhh whahhhhh....I need to call 1 800 wham bulance!
Lol.....I can see that! I am jealous of your brother, too!
Now I don't want to be a "kill joy"...but you guys need to be extremely careful for the first few rides. I used to teach "defensive driving," and it is a proven fact that 85% of all accidents on motorcycles happen in the first 1,000 miles of ownership. He needs to get used to the "newness" and the different level of power....I'm just saying.....and don't forget to have fun!!!!!!
I opened mine up to 130 mph the day after I got it out...so I understand if he tells me to mind my own business....
oops, I didn't see the profanity on his tee shirt, sorry....so I deleted it.....
Pops, I love that you are so safety oriented......too many riders aren't! We live and breathe safety in this house; the hubs is a regional safety manager for a trucking company and he's been riding his whole life. You guys should swap stories!
So where are the pictures?!!!! I want to see the purple color.
Pops8 those donuts look just the thing this morning to get me going. It feels like a lazy day. How about some white coffee this AM?
The jokes are a riot . . . no bricks, please.
Hi susan_m! I'm jealous of you guys out there on the road today. It's a perfect day here for it. Is it too far for you to stop by and show off that new bike? Gorgeous.
Boy, would I love to stop by, Pati! Mike would take you out for a spin.
Time for more coffee, I think. Wait, who am I kidding? It's always time for more coffee!
Oh, and Pops8 - the place looks great this am. I love the new mural.
And you didn't notice, that I actually posted the tag correctly today.....
I noticed that the pledge isn't posted for April yet.....they had so many comments in March, I don't think they want it to end...lol
Sure I did. Every little thing, perfect, Barista Master!
And it is always time for more coffee, susan_m! I'll be out front, waiting on you and Mike.
Good morning everyone! The coffee looks great the morning! Enjoyed the jokes Pops - hope you don't have to work too hard this afternoon - moving is a big job - hopefully she is prepared - that makes a big difference.
thx, i know...im hoping the same thing...so pati, marilyn just sent me a msg and said that she was getting an unauthorized response to the link i posted????A very good morning to you Ken, I've tried to hit the link for today's ex cafe that date but it keeps saying unauthorizedso if I don't stop by this morning that's why, I'll try a little later to drop in but I better call over to my oldest grandson Adam's house and go pick him up for the day.
I don't see anything wrong, but then again....what the heck, i am pretty dumb anyway....
The link worked for me?
Pops, you made the same mistake I made a week ago. You discussion isn't actually in celebrations and events.
This discussion is in celebration leaders. I am trying to find the message from Mark when I did the same thing - I don't think you can move the discussion. I would open a new one and be sure it is in Celebrations & Events
There is an option under actions to move? Try that and select "spaces" Under spaces select "celebrations and events". Worth a try. Pops will have to do it since he is the author.
Hi Jennifer_Quit_05-01-14. We moved a year ago. I hope we don't do it again for a long long time. Hopefully they will have good weather today.
i am sooooo confused...I am about to lose all of my cookies here...now i can't figure out how to post the new tag....i'm calling you now
Don't be worrying Pops, it took me months to figure out all the steps to post the train. When I think I finally GOT it, CRAP! something isn't right.
I LOL at some of those jokes this morning. I LOVE laughter with my morning coffee! Thanks.
Sad you won't get in a ride today - looks like it's gonna' be a good one! 130 mph?
I think I'll take a cuppa' with milk this morning I see a chocolate frosted donut back there. Would love to have that!
I promise not to trash the place while you are gone (that toilet paper in my purse is in case the bathroom needs to be replenished!!!)
lol you are too funny....
so are you good with the doughnuts....??? here is some joe
Oh, my, oh my, but that is enough to give one an origami (is that the right word :-) ----------?
It's a beautiful day, Pops. Hope you get a chance to enjoy it. I don't envy you all that moving, but what a sense of accomplishment when you're done. Glad to see everythings back in place here.
This is not for the faint of heart.....I'm telling you, that I can get easily worked up...this cafe barista business is getting on my last nerve.....
Good Morning all! Busy place here this morning. I've already had my fill of coffee, just wanted to greet you all. Have a great day!
Good morning Jim,
this should get you started today
Good morning, I had issues getting on EX again today and I don't understand what is happening...BUT it has not put me into the best mood. I think I need a latte with vanilla flavoring, an extra shot of expresso, and some irresistable pastry...oh and don't go light on the whipped cream. I have to go to work again today and if it is like yesterday...it might be my LAST DAY. I don't like being taken advantage of by anyone and I am MARCHING into work with a baaaaaad attitude. I feel sorry for those who have to work with me, no, actually I DON'T.
uh oh....well, let me say this....I didn't start it....okay???? good luck for the rest of the day....sorry about all of that stress.....
Thanks, Pops-I'm ready for MORE (:
This pot should hold you over for a bit
Okay gang, it's time that I got on the road to help out a friend in need....so behave....I'll be back later to wash up the dirty dishes...just make sure to not let the coffee pot burn while I am away......
A very good evening Pops , I don't know why I couldn't get to the ex cafe this morning but I thought I'd swing by and say hello and get a cup of green tea before the cafe closes for the night, I hope everyone had a hasslefree, stressfree but most importantly a smokefree day. Our Temps hit 49 degrees this afternoon which was wonderful so this white crap should start melting soon. my 13 yr old Samantha Digger Jane Hartley moved just as I took the pic so Oops!
Hi Marilyn, I am wore out from that move today. Not sure what was happening this am. Must have been me opening the cafe in the wrong place. Sorry about that. Enjoy your cyber tea. Lol
Thanks for all of the fun and support Sunday. I truly do enjoy being with my friends in recovery. So we will close for now, but never fear...we will open back up on Wednesday morning, where you will see our brightest star...susan-m, slinging coffee and doughnuts to your hearts content. In the meantime, keep reaching out to help another addict in recovery....remember the life you save just might be your own.
