A Cup of Joe


#doodlewashMay2022 prompts: Mug.

Did you know there are 3 theories about the origin of the term ‘Cup of Joe’?

One is that Joe was a term for the common man and coffee the drink of the common man. Another is that other slang terms for coffee, Java and Jamoke, were combined and shortened to Joe.  The last is that when Josephus Daniels, Secretary of the Navy, banned alcohol on Navy Ships, in 1913, more coffee was consumed. The sailors began calling it ‘Joe’ in reference to the Secretary.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
