    20201016_112435.jpg I tried a new little cup today.. my usual 3 cup coffee cup is resting.. A woman I know brought me some vintage fiestawear coffee cups and saucers. So this is what I used today.

    Bet some folks here have some interesting / funny coffee cups. A reporter I know dated a police detective and scored a cup from his police dept ( which I will not mention ) XXXXX HOMOCIDE ... OUR DAY STARTS WHEN YOURS ENDS..

    pretty funny and not for public view.

    What vintage? I think fiestaware from 1936-1972 is mildly radioactive.

    The inside of my mug is so stained, I think if you just ad hot water, it may brew a decent cup of coffee by itself. I got a zillion mugs, but only use two of them myself.
    I got to clean out the cupboard, but most are presents and when the giver shows up, they always want the cup they gave me.

    I use two different ones. VFW in the morning, and Black Rifle in the afternoon.

    I used to work with a guy that said anytime he drank a cup of my coffee, the next morning all he had to do was spit in a cup and fill it up with hot water.

    Won’t that just help keep the coffee warm?

    Instead of coffee, I drink cold, Red Diamond Tea (sugarless) and keep 4-5 gallon jugs of it in the refrigerator. The standard beverage vessel is a conventional glass beer mug. It gets pretty stained, but every once in a while, some elbow grease and a brush restores it to its original, pristine condition.

    The one on the right my dad got from the mess hall at Ft. Bragg in 1964.

    The cup I keep in my patrol car is just a plain ‘ol stainless steel, thermos cup with a top so it doesn’t spill all over the code box. I didn’t take a picture of it.

    I use these two almost exclusively. If I’m in the RV, it’s the tall one.

    Only the color radioactive red. Is actually slightly radioactive. I ate off one of those plates yesterday. Dont think the danger is very high. Might not let a ten year old eat from it.. but at 61 its not on my list of things to worry about. Bet I eat off the plate once or twice a year.
