I do too. I never understood people who don’t.

Especially since microwave ovens became common.
I remember standing half asleep while running hot water over baby bottles to warm them up before we had a microwave.

Morning!

Getting my coffee in while checking the laptop one last time before packing it up, catching some breakfast, then hitting the road. Picking up a load of paper and heading to Russellville AR, kicking off a 3 week stretch on the highway. Naturally the anxiety kicked in last night so I didn't get quality sleep, but the cooler weather should be nice today.
