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

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.
