Some Say Illness, I Say Interest.

My friend Georgia compared my haul of Coffee Pot stuff to the Seinfeld episode where Kramer got the entire set of the Merv Griffin show.

Previous booty here and here.

I'm Not Gloating But This is Now In My Apartment

Well... I *AM* gloating a LITTLE.

People at Work®: Skip Rist of The Coffee Pot (ret)

Yesterday while I was talking to him, Katherine Lausier came in to thank him and say goodbye. In tears she said the Coffee Pot was a big part of her childhood and that it isn't really about the sandwiches and she was right. Every person you talk to has a very personal relationship to this silly little sandwich shop. It's as much about the history, shared relationships and 'Coffee Pot Picnic' at Cascade park as it is the smell of the onions.

There SHOULD be more to say but there really isn't. We chatted for a couple of hours when he graciously agreed to meet me but I don't feel I can print much of it other than he noted that "Today it's really hitting me."

And us.

Thanks, Skip.
