Couch Pawtatoes

Things have been crazy, lazy

Yes, daisy and mazey. I should put up an intestine shaped maze graphic, but just typing "intestine" is enough. Blech. Intestine. 
My digestive system has been out of whack and it' s because, get this, I was "introducing too much healthy food" into my diet and apparently my digestive system said, "WTF?"
I've been off candy, off unintentional sugar and trying to tear down and build back up again. I remain skeptical.

Meanwhile, here's a picture of an end of days turkey, mmm, apocalypse turkey. I say "apocalypse" because they are EVERYwhere and I think it's signaling something. Maybe it's a city-wide promo, maybe they are positioning themselves as our supreme overlords. There are five of them who have "packed up" as my dad always said, and roam the mean streets of east Madison. I haven't run into them, but fully expect to see them wearing Purgolder team jackets when I do.

This little b*stard is one of the many, MANY arboretum turkeys that saunter about the place. [Insert why did the turkey cross the road joke here.]

If you're sick of reading this nonsense, please READ THE CHED CURTAIN until I can look a piece of candy in the face again.

Donut Say No

I'm putting down my Earl Grey and donut to say, mmffgh slurp, Happy National Donut Day.
A little research (very little) traces the first Friday in June back to WWI and the Salvation Army.

Greenbush Sour Cream Old Fashioned tells us the fried sugar delight "involves Dutch immigrants, Russian exiles, French bakers, Irving Berlin, Clark Cable and a certain number of Native Americans."

Donut Day USA has a short video on the Salvation Army's donut connection and let's you look up donut hotspots in your neighborhood.

CNN reminds us not to confuse National Donut Day with National Doughnut Day in November.

The best donuts, sticky hands down, are from the Greenbush Bakery on Regent. They aren't doing anything special today, but I was told in a very what-the-hell-don't-you-know-how-freakin'-busy-we-are tone of voice that, "We can't keep them on the shelves." Click.

But I'm sure they do. I favor the coconut cake donut and their most popular, the Sour Cream Old Fashioned.

Whether with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk, or straight up. Yum.

Destructo Dog

One of Oliver's travel toys made an appearance post Frosty Paws Party and he was pretty protective of it.
Turns out he had good reason.
Tony the Tiger Travel Toy, we barely knew ya.

No Paw Left Behind

The Dish Dogs had a Frosty Paws Party, but not everyone was there.
Long time Dish model, Roscoe, was out of the office and when he got back there was a whole lotta lickin' going on.
Roscoe and Vixen used to eat Frosty Paws while we feasted on Babcock Dairy Store ice-cream.
June is dairy month, so a two paw ice cream review coming soon.

Roscoe, the big baby, wants me to hold the cup for him

Bec-key Lime Pie
Banana Peanut Butter
Salted Caramel Toffee 
Orange Sherbet (orange sherbet?)
