Cis: A coffee shop of our minds

"So here we are.... around the invisible table that we have surrounded for 13 +years... the ups and downs of the crew that join and left over the years..some by the way of the cooler, some out of disgust with some of us.. the new.. and some of us older ones who still hang around even if we don't say anything.. some of them went to heaven.. (Dave, Orange) who would have loved to ring in on this day... so as we stroll thru this last day..looking around one last time..... looking back, as we get ready to walk out of the door of this old coffee shop in our minds" -- Cis Gors/Who Didn't Have A Simple Mind.
