Donuts: Need help with consuming an abundant supply!

HELP!!!
Dear members and constituents,
We have an emergency situation. We appear to have had a logistic faux-pas. I was not here when it happened but it appears Nanette Zeile and what sounded like Jen Artley on voice mail have brought in donuts. We have a TON. I am christening today "bring a friend Friday". Please help us out in any way you can with the demand side of the equation.

I also want to give a big hand to Ed Stocker for doing a lot more than holding down the fort while I was out. He has revitalized the club, adding five new members and stirred some controversy around the preferred spelling of Donut. Speaking of which, the results are in, 14 respondents out of 21 surveys were tabulated and... there was a late surge of voting that pushed Donut over the top 8 – 6. At least one of the votes came from a non member, but it was accepted anyway.

Our new rotation takes us through the end of 2006 and we will play it by ear but may end up needing a little more than two dozen donuts every week due to the increased membership (we now have 21 members). Obviously, supply will not be a problem today.

Here is our new rotation for the record:
John Schoder, 8/4/2006
Ed Stocker, 8/11/2006
Kim Carroll, 8/18/2006
Nannette Zeile, 8/25/2006
Stacy Jackson, 9/1/2006
Carlton Bonilla, 9/8/2006
Carolyn Reuss, 9/15/2006
Shaun Andrews, 9/22/2006
Richard DiGeronimo, 9/29/2006
Andrea Gavalas, 10/6/2006
Jennifer Artley, 10/13/2006
Tucker Maroney, 10/20/2006
Jerri Abeyta, 10/27/2006
Yvonne Tofel, 11/3/2006
Roger Greene, 11/10/2006
Colby Stilson, 11/17/2006
Holiday , 11/24/2006
Marcio Avillez, 12/1/2006
Jeff Allen, 12/8/2006
Phil King, 12/15/2006
Michael Remacle, 12/22/2006

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!

To an end to Covid Games

  Friends, As 2021 comes to an end, it’s time to remember and be grateful for another year of life – there’s much for which to be grateful. Sure, some things could have gone better (they always can), but on balance things were good. At the Gonz├ílez household, the cathartic process of capturing this year’s essence to burn at midnight is wrapping-up. This year’s theme, “Covid Games from home” uses Squid games (Netflix’s unlikely breakaway hit) as a way to mock the two main Covid variants of concern (Delta and Omicron) and commiserate about working from home with all the weirdness it carries along. Comfy slippers combined with dressing-up from the waist up for zoom meetings (not to mention the quarantine fifteen). As I hope for lots of snow and no wind (lest we need to call an audible on the midnight burn) my thoughts turn to my friends in Boulder county and hopes for a quick recovery. May 2022 bring an end to confinement and lots of opportunities to share donuts. Happy Friday!
