Hunting Mugs

has "Favorite Mug (this is for Jo)" on it.  This made me smile, of course.

After our big fire, Gene forbid me to have a collection of mugs again.  I had so many that most were in boxes.  As you might imagine the collection has grown in spite of itself and Gene.  I may be up to 30 or so again.  Yikes!  I do not have a favorite, although, I use 4 or 5 over and over.  The rest are just "around".   You have seen many in sketches.  I have not sketched my favorite yet.

I worked in the big book again with a Micron 03.  

Number 8, Father's Day remembrance - I don't have many things from my Dad, but my sister did give me this cup she had saved.  My dad always asked for a half a cup of coffee.  Someone gave him this one.
Number 9, profile - the same cup
Number 10, something you collect - a few of the mugs that have accumulated

The cup on the top left stack is brown and sort of blue inside, handmade here in Bastrop.  The handle is low down (doesn't show so much in my drawing) on the side.  Most handles are centered on a cup or near the top.  I didn't notice that when I bought this.  You might miss your mouth when raising this one if you aren't paying attention.  :-)

Jennifer Rose, the half cup always got a laugh. Sadly I don't remember who gave it to him. Thanks!
