Jack's entry at Shipslog started out about coffee mugs, so it reminded me of my collection of coffee mugs. Do you collect them and if you do, do you have one with a favorite saying on it or one with the most meaning to you? Back in the 70's the filling station I used gave a mug with each fill-up. They were mugs with a different horoscope each week. They are black with gold lettering. After I collected several it came to me to try to get all twelve horoscopes. The operator of the station would let me bring one back to trade if I happen to already have the one they gave that week. It didn't take many weeks to have them all since I was taking my girls to school and back and their many activities. I filled my car with gasoline most every week. I've had them packed away for years after giving them to a friend who is much more interested in horoscopes then I am. Along the years she moved away and we've lost contact so she never came to pick them up. Now I'm glad I still have them because they are very pretty and they remind me of those years because at the time we were having to wait in line for gasoline. I don't remember why. I should get those coffee mugs out and find a way to display them.
