original watercolor: 'egg coffee'

Original watercolor of the story. The image, as a black & white line drawing, & story was originally published in 'mostly true'. 

I can still remember sitting at our dining room table in Berkely & writing & drawing this story about my Norwegian Lutheran grandfather & his (sometimes) sage advice...:-). It's one of the few originals that's done entirely in translucent watercolor inks

he told me the best way to make coffee was to add an egg so I did and he looked at the strands floating in his cup and decided to have tea instead
