Over a good cup of coffee.

Ya know I look at Washington sometimes and I just wish I could make them a good cup of coffee. There sure is a whole lot of cussin' and discussin' that can happen over a black cup of steamin' brew.
Over a good cup of coffee, a shearing crew can pull apart sticky caramel rolls and find the solutions to all of the sticky situations our world is in.
Over a good cup of coffee, a husband and wife of a half century don't have to say a word, they just smile and know what the other is thinking.
Over a good cup of coffee, a brand inspector and a rancher decided the best way to handle a situation and then shake on it.
Over a good cup of coffee, a Norwegian joke is told by one old codger to another.
Over a good cup of coffee, wisdom is passed from one generation to the next. Lightly seasoned with a lot of experience, "could haves" and "should haves."
Over a good cup of coffee, friends of long ago are reunited and a good poker hand is revealed.
Over a good cup of coffee, a mourning heart is comforted and a morning dew, appreciated. A smile is shared and another provoked. A story is told and a head nodded in understanding. A hat tipped and a prayer said, all over a good cup of coffee.
It's not a scenario that can be created on purpose, but a good cup of coffee extended from one  person to another sure does offer the floor for some great conversation. It's worked for ranchers and country folks for so many years, you'd think maybe other folks would try it too.
