Donuts Are Here


[posted by Ed Stocker while JP is out]
Dear Members and Constituents,
If you follow the Denver Broncos (or even if you don’t) you’ve probably heard of Tim Tebow.  He is currently a polarizing figure in the world of professional sports.  Even outside of Denver Tebow remains a hot topic and is frequently discussed on sports radio and ESPN.  Today I wanted us to delve a little deeper into the Tebow debate.  I want to ask, and attempt to answer, the question on everyone’s mind.  If Tim Tebow were a donut, what variety would he be?
  • Glazed – more of an everyday player, always reliable and plentiful, I’m thinking offensive line.
  • Crueler – it’s light and airy, very fast to eat, good tasting but not necessarily filing, maybe a Corner Back.
  • Cake - is nice if that’s your thing, but too heavy for some, more of a Defensive Lineman.
  • Jelly Filled – sweetness but not always what you expect, you may want Strawberry but get a Lemon – has to be a Running Back.
  • Bagel – not a donut, but this is where I see Linebackers fitting in, they may look the same at a distance but they’re just a little bit different.
  • Glazed Donut Holes – small, almost irrelevant, an afterthought to the entire donut making process, did you say Kicker?  Without the glaze is the Punter.
  • Anything with Bright Sprinkles - would be a Wide Receiver, flashy and in your face with lots of attitude and confidence, and you can hear just a little bit of trash talk coming from the box.
  • Long Johns - easily recognizable, usually just a few in a box -  some are cream filled and smooth like an elite Quarterback -  others aren’t filled and they look just as good on the outside but just don’t deliver, like most QBs.
  • Bacon Maple Cream – bacon in a donut?  It sounds just a little insane.  Ever return a punt or a kickoff?  I think we have a match
  • Apple Fritter -  polarizes people., you either love ‘em or hate ‘em, bigger than anything else in the box (and at least as big as your head) but not necessarily what you are looking for in a morning donut, nice to look at but frequently left for the second string; I think we may have found Tim Tebow.

You may have noticed by now JP is out, but that doesn’t mean we can’t swing by his office and grab a donut.  Zach Przybeck make his donut debut today.  Let’s see if he can make the starting line up or if he ends up on the bench. He’s delivered four dozen delicious Lamar’s donuts for your enjoyment.

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! ;-)
