Donuts are here (start of the donut controversy)

Dear members and constituents,
An oddity has occurred… Donuts were here at 7:20 when I arrived. No, I did not intentionally wait 20 minutes to send out this notice so I could cherry-pick.

My records show John Guillaume is to thank for today's batch. Please come by and enjoy.
On a housekeeping note, next Friday marks the finale of the current donut cycle. Unless folks feel strongly one way or another, I was thinking I would repeat the order in which donuts were brought in this time around, which means that after Viana brings in donuts next Friday, I would start off the rotation the following week, then Matt W. and so forth. If I don't get better ideas, I will be sending out meeting requests for your donut turns next week.

Happy Friday!

Members and constituents.The following issue has been brought to my attention and, unless addressed may be the downfall of the donut club. I thought you should collectively know. I have received similar verbal comments from several members of the club. I don't want to pick on this week's delivery, as this has been happening several weeks now. I have included voting buttons to make a determination as to how to proceed. Please select the voting button that more closely represents your views.Thanks,-JP

JP,
Unless people are willing to institute some quality standards in the donuts for the next go around (i.e. Krispy Kreme, Lamar’s,Winchell’s) I have to regretfully drop out of the group. Not sure how this idea might play to the group as a whole but in talking with some folks I think I can speak for at least a few of us.
By the way, thanks for running this. I think you’re doing a great job.

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

Ashes to Ashes

  Friends, I don’t know about you, but my household tends to use things a tad beyond their reasonably useful life. Cars, razors, pillows... heck, we squeezed the last BTU out of our home’s 25 year old thermostat —15 years is for rookies. This week we bid our fire pit farewell. Structurally unstable and rusted to the core, this contrivance was well on its way to returning to the soil. Memories of s’mores, cigars and shared spirits come rushing back, as does the six foot tall cardboard peach burned atop it, which caused the first stress fractures in the waning days of 2019. Good times! I suppose nothing lasts forever, but memories can add a sense of permanence to the fleeting. So go, grab a donut and make some new memories!! Happy Friday!

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.
