2 Loves - Coffee and Blenko

Make that 3 loves, a good bookstore, coffee and Blenko!
Nothing goes better with 'Blenko shopping' than a cup of joe. Meeting at a bookstore to browse Glass Books, have a cup of coffee and then off to flea markets, vintage stores.
A reader from La. who like Heart of Glass, and loves coffee sent this link. The download is free. The subject is NOT Blenko, but coffee. Its a cold winter day, grap some coffe and drive down to Blenko Glass, Milton, WV.
Note: Blenko does not make coffee mugs, however, a number of the older Blenko glasses can be safely used for coffee and coffee liquor drinks.

Stopping for tea and a scone during a glasshound group meeting is something we do each month.
At the end of the long day we'll have a nice dinner and go our own way.
Yes a good cup of tea brings good fortune to the hunter and friendships grow fastest with good tea.

you haven't written about the Benz accident.
Did State Farm come thru
and is the car repaired like new, was it a total?
Are you and your parents and the other drivers all OK?
Curious, and it seems you never finish a thread .

Books / coffee/ tea/ and good friends to 'hunt with' who could ask for more?
When does the blenko collectors again meet in Milton or whereever I wanna be there.
Wear a flower in your hair Doc Glasslady so we all know who you are.

I'm also interested in the State Farm results.
State Farm would cost less for me, but I keep hearing they fail to pay properly.

This post got me to thinking,
how many people appreciate and just plain ole love Blenko Glass.
I hope the people at Blenko sometimes read the blog post so they will know how appreciated and loved the product has become.
These post and followers of the post and contributors to the post are loyal and its apparent they would do most anything to keep Blenko successful.
Do you send Blenko Glass owners family etc copies daily?
