Not just a mug

Posted on

                                        
                                                 Lustre lost, reflecting age,
                                                 Ne'er a contender for centre stage
                                                 At banquets for a Queen or King,
                                                 A pannikin, tin, a simple thing.
                                                 Handle's loose, chipped and worn,
                                                 Stained and looking all forlorn.
                                                 No painted gilded artistry,
                                                 Ye olde green mug's a lot like me.

(This is not an open invitation for any of my Aussie friends to post the comment;
"Yes GOF, you are a mug" or any variation upon that theme.
To do so might unearth that ugly Wrath of Gof once again.)

  2. Ye olde green mug would be less battered
    If GOF spent more time doing things that mattered
    Less drinking tea, it's just not funny
    Get yourself on into Bunnings
    Buy yourself some bolts and brackets
    And fix that verandah post, it's bloody knackered.

    Stop posting photos that make me homesick.

  8. so you are saying that if we do unleash the ugly Wrath of Gof then we are the mugs? Never would I say that FD about my valued friends.I just thought I would show Snowy that I knew what was going on in his head before he'd even thunk it.

  11. Where is the open fire?Nice mug. The handle is only required until it cools down enough to wrap your hands around it.If I can find my "snoz" cup I'll post it up. Mugs should always handle a decent size drink just like this one.

  12. There is an open fire……in winter. This year was so warm we only had to light it a couple of times.I love my mug. Some of the ceramic mugs suck so much heat out of the drink that you have to pre-warm them. I think we need to see your snoz mug.

  13. Oh, I have really missed my laptop! This time-sharing on the manservant's computer has not been very good for my vox neighbours. I basically have time to write emails to my family and then time is up…. but here I am 5 days late – what a great mug – you need a fire in the paddock for this.
