Friday Donut Club member welcome -we have a Baker's Dozen!

Dear founding members!

 It is a great honor and pleasure to inform you the charter membership for 31A's Friday Donut Club is set (with an honorary 32C member). Fittingly enough, we have 13 members (a baker's dozen) on the initial roster. This means each of us will only have to bring in a couple of dozen donuts once per quarter. We may be able to stretch this out a week further if folks want to buy donuts at LaMar's (I have a LaMar's donut lover's dozen card we could all use to get a free dozen with every 11 purchased).
 
I have made arbitrary decisions regarding a couple of topics:
  • Number of donuts to be brought in. Two dozen should be enough (if we start seeing shortages, we will adjust this number upwards). This should account for someone inevitably being out (I will personally be out 4 consecutive Fridays in July/August) and a couple of donuts (average) per capita (some will have more, some less, I'm sure).
  • Order in which donuts will be brought in. It is never easy assigning the initial order in which donuts should be brought, so I thought it fair to do an inverse alphabetic order. I will be sending you a "0 minute" outlook meeting request for your day with the reminder set to the previous day. This should hopefully help minimize donut riots for lack of the doughy substance. I am also enclosing a list to this e-mail so you will know whom you can trade spaces with if you have to miss a Friday for whatever reason.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to let me know. I look forward to many happy donut Fridays.

BIrds of a Feather

Friends, The early bird catches the worm, however, as the sun rises I’d much rather have a Denver omelet than a diet of worms . Ready to fly the coop, my ducks all in a row, I ponder one more time whether a bird in hand is truly worth two in the bush. Egged-on by my quest to tuck away a nest egg, I’ve decided to change industries and hope that, like the phoenix, my career will also rise from the ashes of change. After all, I’m no spring chicken –my crow’s feet and gray bely my age – however, I have to trust my judgment and believe you can’t catch this old bird with chaff (whether or not folks think me an odd bird for my actions). And so I shall attempt to soar like an eagle, aware that counting my chickens before they hatch would be ill-advised. As I learn to talk turkey in the language of cybersecurity, I will endeavor not to hide my head in the sand, choosing instead to be like a duck – calm on the surface and paddle like hell underneath! And while my excessive use of bird-inspired

Love and Marriage go together like a Horse and... Donut!

Friends, My family gained a new daughter last week. As I welcome the freshly minted Mrs. González, I wish the new couple a lasting, loving, happy and tranquil marriage. I am also reminded of a special delivery I received at the wedding. A few weeks ago, my niece/goddaughter held a “go fund me” and offered to stitch something for the donors. I, of corse, asked for a horse jumping through a donut. The completed masterpiece depicting this unlikely combo now has a special place in my office, and brings a smile to my face every time I see it. That said, I may forgo the obligatory donut today and opt for some of the leftover cake we still have at the house. Happy Friday!   New addition to the Family Horse through donut  with the artist   Horse through donut at it’s new home shelf P.S. The donut wall in action.

Life is Smiling!

Friends, You know life is good when even dinner smiles at you. That said, digging into smiley soup can pose a dilemma. At a conscious level, you know it’s just inert food. Inanimate, unsentient, incapable of emotion or feeling. Still, those cute cross eyed egg eyes and that little pepper smile are saying ”I’m your friend” —and friends don’t eat friends. Naming your anthropomorphic dish only makes matters worse. Eventually, being the monster I am, hunger wins. Mmmm, delicious! (Sorry, Sally). Speaking of which, maybe skip the smiley faces on that next dozen donuts. Happy Friday! ;-)
