Doughnut Dementia Day had a Plus side (and it wasn't my hips)

So as I posted yesterday,  there was a social food event in my neighborhood Saturday morning, directly in front of my home. How ironic that our neighborhood's D-day takes place one day after the anniversary of the great D-day of the allies into France in WWII.

In addition to the doughnuts they had lots of Dunkin'donuts coffee-in-a-box carafes. They had leftovers of the coffee and someone graciously gave me a sealed, full box carafe of coffee. My husband and I enjoyed the hot coffee today. Tomorrow I will enjoy iced coffee from what remains.

So to dismiss the dark drama of doughnut day, I declare that it did have a plus side. Since I was diligent in my defense against eating any doughnuts, the plus side has nothing to do with my side or hips or butt.

Just FYI, there is a reason National Donut Day is held on D-Day. My own father actually told me about Salvation Army volunteers meeting him and his fellow sailors with free coffee and donuts when they disembarked in the Philippines in 1943. http://money.msn.com/saving-money-tips/post--free-doughnuts-for-national-doughnut-day

Obviously not saying anyone today needs donuts or recommending we partake as a way to honor our military on the anniversary of the Normandy invasion, but it does commemorate a gesture made to some very young guys who proudly put themselves in harm's way many decades ago.

Hmmmm... coffee... yes! Great outcome on the left overs. Score! :)

Feeling good day to day is an awesome cycle. Glad you're in this cycle. :)

Amen to that Norma. And amen and gratitude to all those men who never made it to the doughnuts that day - never made it off the beach.
