Sunday stills: Coffee or tea cups

For lack of better tea cups I looked to the first willing victim volunteer to stand around and drink out of a cup.

This is my cousin Ken. I hadn't seen ken in a couple years. A couple years too many because he got married to a wonderful woman, Alaina whom I had never met until last Thursday. Now that I know where they both live I shall be making more frequent visits to have a fun day like we did Thursday.

When they asked if I wanted tea I jumped at the opportunity; not for tea but for teacups. I asked if they minded me taking pictures and they obliged.

Ken had ideas of drinking tea like he normally did out of a mostly manly, boring but functional cup. Alaina had better ideas and broke out the "bane of her existence" AKA a set of cups Ken is drinking out of in this photo.

They are quite retro. I mean that's back in style anyway.

Love the photo Sydney, and as my son, Lake, profoundly said in 2005,
"Retro is the new thing".

Ken himself looks kind of retro.

Is that barbwire trim on the cup? You took a really nice photo. Nice that you connected with family over a blog post!

Yeah, my first thought was of Johnny Depp too. Really great stuff.

Thanks for the compliments. I guess he does look like Depp with his long hair and facial hair.
Shirley: no it's not barbed wire, just a yellow/reddish/orange cup.
