Dear Members and Constituents, This is one of those days where it feels good to be in the office. Sitting inside a warm building doing something productive and knowing the opportunity cost to your time is very low today is comforting. It is also comforting to know it is Friday and donuts await you! Today is Jerri Abeyta's first time and she has been looking forward to it all week. She carefully made her list, checked it twice and headed out to LaMar's this morning, full of joyful anticipation. And I think the results of that preparation are apparent. Two dozen of Ray LaMar's finest confections (including a healthy selection of specialties). So, grab a cup of your favorite hot beverage (and I do hope it does not happen to be soup) and come on down! Don't make these sweet pastries wait a minute longer. You know you want them. Happy Friday!
Donuts are part of the magic that makes life so sweet. I founded the Level 3 Friday Donut Club in 2004 and ran it until my departure in 2015. It had a three year run at Windstream and is now virtual, but at its peak, we had a rotation of 50+ folks who brought donuts every Friday. We had three simple rules: (1) five dozen (2) boutique shop donuts (3) by 8:00 am. This blog memorializes these e-mails to share my thoughts (and, once upon a time, announce the donut arrival). Have a happy Friday!
