Morning Mug Meme

I saw this one over at Trav's Thoughts, but it originated from Lowdown From Lois.
The rules are pretty simple: Most folks drink some sort of a morning beverage, be it coffee or tea, and most likely from a mug. Please share a photo of your favorite mug(s) and tell a story about how it became your favorite. Include what you drink with this mug.

This is my coffee mug at the office. I got it in Las Vegas while attending the national convention for the American Institute of Architects a couple of years ago. I just liked the classic graphics and the mug is the ideal size for me. The handle is even designed to fit your thumb and forefinger.Coffee of choice is Folgers Gourmet Blend.

This is my collection of University of Oklahoma coffee mugs. The one on the left says "Alumni", which I am. The other two feature more traditional Sooner logos. I don't really use these mugs. They're my display models. They reside on a book shelf in my office.

This is my home mug and probably my favorite of all. It is stainless steel, inside and out, so you don't get any plastic odor or taste. It is rugged. I can carry it around the house, take it out to the garage, in the yard, or put it in the truck and go anywhere with it. It has a soft touch handle with a perfect grip for my hand. This is my go anywhere, do anything, anytime mug. This mug is the first thing I find on Saturday mornings. With this mug filled with my favorite coffee (see above) and a little half & half, sitting on the back deck, watching the cardinals and woodpeckers is a perfect way to start the week-end.

OK, it's Friday and that means it's time for the inspirational song of the week. I'm going to reach way back into the archives and the roots of Gospel music. This song is by the Five Blind Boys of Alabama. I'd love to be in one of their church services. Enjoy.

Cool mugs... I did a tweak that will allow you to read The Couch without a problem.

Shockingly, my favourite mug is one adorned by old British buses (I'm sure you just gasped in amazement...) but oddly enough, I tend to use mugs from old employers... one telecom company in particular seemed to give me mugs every other day so they've piled up!

Our coffee of choice is President's Choice Hazelnut Cream... which is the right blend of nutty-coffee without being sweet.

Great mugs... Boomer Sooner!

I like the idea of an insulated go everywhere mug.

This is a very neat meme! The everday mugs are so special aren't they?

I see I'm not the only one who drinks from a variety of MUGS ... but prefers stainless steel for regular use. I did this meme LAST Monday along with my 6th Fun Monday post.
