Rutters, Coffee & Anniversary

One night a couple weeks ago when our friend Hanne was visiting with us at the cabin she decided she wanted a cup of Starbucks coffee.  I checked on the internet and found one in Chambersburg about 15 miles from us.  We hopped into the car and drove there only to arrive about 5 minutes after they closed.  No chance they would stay open a few more minutes and take care of us.  

Now what?  If you know much about this area, you know that they roll up the sidewalks very early and everything closes down.  They actually have an Ace Hardware that closes at 5pm just about every day of the week except Sunday when they are closed all day.   Now I had to search for coffee and finally found some at a Rutters Gas station and convenience store.  Gerry and Hanne went in and learned how to brew the coffee and came out with three cups of steaming hot liquid.  We all loved it and now we are hooked on stopping at Rutters for our evening coffee.  It's all Hanne's fault that we are now gaining weight. 

One year ago today, 10/10/10 we attended the wedding of our granddaughter Stephanie & Shawn.  Happy anniversary you guys.  Hope this is the first one of many more.

Oh, one more thing.  I managed to find a geocache today while Cassie & Gerry were at the doctor having Cassie's eye checked out.  Great day for caching, but not enough time.

  1. Still haven't tried geocaching, but it sounds like a lot of fun. Haven't tried Rutter's coffee yet either, so you're way ahead of us!
