About Us

I am Dale Parsons, and this is my lovely wife of nearly fifty years, Mary. We have a wonderful family we love dearly.

Maggie is our mini-goldendoodle. She is a loving and faithful companion.

A Coffee State of Mind is a blog that includes many topics. The following links will open examples from each of the menu items:

Model Railroading.

Mental Health.


Scandal at Maple Valley.

Post Pages.

Model Railroading includes many photos of my HO scale Maple Valley Model Railroad, plus many how-to posts for those interested in learning about the hobby.

Mental Health posts are about ideas for improving mental health.

Blogging is a catch-all of topics, none of which are about how to write a blog.

Scandal at Maple Valley is an ongoing saga about the disappearance of Sylvia Meisner, and life in Maple Valley.

I hope you will choose to follow A Coffee State of Mind and invite your friends to join you.

Thanks so much!

Dale Parsons

  1. Hi Dale I so enjoyed reading your testimony and learning more about you. We have a lot in common. God, family and hobbies. And our unique ability to express positive thoughts through our songs of artistry.

    Though I have not tried the Coffee Element yet, the idea is tempting!

    I am your friend from Instagram,
