Tucson AZ Home Loan Info



Yaay!  Coffee.

Like most of the rest of you, I need my morning coffee!

Early morning yesterday found me in Green Valley to help a REALTOR friend.  I was driving back north toward Tucson at 7:30 a.m. when I spotted this tractor trailer in front of me. 

Out came the camera; I just had to share it with you.  Word is that Starbucks has a new size:  the 32 ounce Trenta.   Well, the competition isn't standing still!

I saw that truck once!  It sure is hard to get the driver to pull over and share a cup with you.

Great picture Mike.  Thanks for sharing it with us.

So how far did you follow it until they finally pulled over for you?  ;-)

Funny picture - I can just imagine the long line of cars following this one.

If I pulled out my camera while driving I'd cause an accident ... but it doesn't look like you had too much to run into out here.  LOL.  Beautiful countryside!

Mike, I don't think I've ever seen a truck deliver coffee! Cool picture.

Hello Mike and I love the pic and I think I will go get a cup after viewing your pic. And I really think this post goes great with the group .......


So I have featured it there!

VB ;o)

Mike, where was that truck this morning when I really needed it!

Now how do you refuel on the highway is there a spigot that you need to connect to at 70 mile per hour to refill.

Hey Mike

Fun photo!

Too funny. Myself? I just like de-coffinated caffeine. Don't much care for the taste of the stuff, just like the jitters it provides...

Helping you help others live their American dream...

Great pic....I'm with Michael, decaf for me, otherwise I'm wired for sound and wayyy too hyper.


Posted by Jo-Anne Smith over 10 years ago


You?  Hyper?  We want to see the embedded YouTube videos on your blog.  LOL


I can drink regular coffee at 10 p.m. and be asleep by 10:15.  I can't imagine a coffee buzz from DeCaf!


Glad you thought so!

Terry & Bonnie,

It's sort of like a fighter jet refueling at 30,000 feet behind a KC135.  :)


I was monopolizing the supply.  LOL

Vegas Bob,

Thanks for the Feature!!


I don't know that it was really full of coffee...  LOL


I knew you would get a bang out of that!


...and the speed limit was 75!  I had a hard time catching up with him as I merged onto the Interstate.


My first thought exactly!


You're welcome!


Thanks for being the first to comment!

I would scold you for taking the picture while driving, but I was guilty of the same think when I saw the school bus that had mud flaps with those chrome girls on them!


Posted by Dawn Heinemann, The Peter DeLuca Team (Long Realty Company) over 10 years ago

Dawn,  What school district? 

Mike,  I hate the smell of coffee, so I have to do tea or Red Bull.  I am looking into some of the other energy drinks.  Wonder if there is something better than RB?

Posted by Doreen McPherson, Phoenix Arizona Real Estate ~ (Homesmart ~ Scottsdale ~ Tempe) over 10 years ago

I love the smell of coffee!  I would have followed that truck too! I drink it before bed and it never kept me awake either.  Great pic!  Congratulations on the feature!

Hi Mike:

I stopped by to wish you a Happy St Patrick's Day from the team at National Credit Fixers!

That takes the word "grande" to a whole new level!

Posted by Bob & Carolin Benjamin, East Phoenix Arizona Homes (Benjamin Realty LLC) over 10 years ago

Now that is a lot of coffee!  Talk about the ol' depth charge!  That might last an hour at my office. :-)

Posted by Michael Delaware, REALTOR®, CRS, GRI (North Sky Realty LLC) over 10 years ago

Couldn't read the smaller print on the truck, only the word COFFEE but that would have my attention too!  It's embarassing at times how addicted I am to my morning coffee... Gotta' have it... There have been times that i debated giving it up just to make sure that I could, but I truly enjoy the stuff!

Don't you remember the words of Winston Churchill?  "Never, never, never give up!"  LOL


I'd do OK at your office!


Love the sentiment!


...and a Happy St. Patty's  day to you!


Who would have thought this would get a feature?!  Thanks for stopping by.


Oh my gosh!  You don't like the smell of coffee?  Brewed or roasted?


Those mud flaps don't belong on a schoolbus!


Ronnie and I would get along.  LOL

Mike - How many cup would it take to empty that pot. Make you want to put your logo on the back of a truck.

Posted by Larry Brewer - Benchmark Realty llc (Benchmark Realty LLc) over 10 years ago

As I am in a coffee shop right now on my computer, I can totally relate to this one.  :)


Thanks for sharing.

Your very welcome Mike and coffee is a great subject, and it goes very well with Activerain!

VB ;)

Posted by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz over 10 years ago

Vegas Bob,

That it does.  Time for a cup of joe right now!


I've got to get to Mesa to see your new digs!


I like the way you think!  What a great idea.

How did I miss this post, Mike?   Wonderful!  I am a tea drinker, and would love to see a truck like that with tea!

I don't drink tea.  Does that make me a "tea-totaler?"  :)
