This is/WAS my favourite cup. It’s a silly cup with pictures of border collies on it. I don’t have border collies, I have regular collie dogs, but I love this cup so much. I am heartbroken that IT is broken. I knocked it off the railing out in the front garden yesterday and it went falling to it’s demise onto some paving stones. Actually, I’m surprised it only broke into a few pieces rather than shatter into hundreds because it must have fallen at least 10 feet onto the stone. But it’s over – my and cup and I.
I taped it together just so I could take its picture. That brown shadow is not a stain in the cup, it’s just a shadow from the flash.
I’m appealing to anyone who lives in the UK or who is travelling in North Yorkshire, maybe Thirsk, to let me know if you ever run across a cup like this one. I would love to replace it, but I just can’t remember exactly where I bought it. Somehow I think it was in a Five & Dime type shop on the main market street in Thirsk, right behind the post-office, next to or in the area of the good bookshop. But I can’t be sure. So if you do run across a cup like this in your travels… pick one up for me and I will compensate you for your trouble. I know now that I should have gotten more than just one.
That’s it for now. I have so much work to type today so I need to get at it. We will see Paul’s cousin, J, tomorrow. She is coming here with his folks for homemade pizzas. Paul hasn’t seen her probably since he was a teenager! She is up here (from Florida) taking a class for work and we are looking forward to our get-together.
