The incredibly delicious donut

This morning I was naughty and bought myself a donut and coffee for breakfast. I was naughty, but I truly enjoyed it. Because it is a no-no I think I enjoyed it even more - a big fat coconut donut and a coffee to go with it. I'd show you a photo of the donut, but I ate it. Every bite.

It's pretty easy to find a donut to eat. It's harder to find an incredibly delicious donut. Grocery stores, restaurants, and even Starbucks sell donuts, but they don't taste like this morning's donut. Here's where I bought it.

In my neck of the woods, this is what a donut shop usually looks like. It isn't much of a looker, it's all about buying a dozen donuts to take somewhere.

A little further from my house, across the railroad tracks from a State Campground is a place called VG's. VG's is legendary. They stay open all night while they're making donuts. Can't sleep and awake at 2 AM? Go down to VG's for a still-warm donut fresh from the kitchen. I've done it. Nothing in this world tastes any better.

I'm sure the word is out at the campground too. There seem to be a lot of campers crossing over the tracks (at the crossing, I hope) and landing at VG's.

So today I urge you, in the interest of keeping both the pleasure centers of your brain and your sweet-craving tummy, to go to a REAL donut shop for a guilty delight.



  1. i'm gonna. and i'm gonna say you said i should!
    sweet post

  2. Please do it. Just don't do it every day. I allow myself a donut once a week or so. I count it as lunch and when it wears off I am sooo hungry, but I make myself wait for dinner.

  3. Nothing wrong with donuts, especially like you are talking about. Sweet pleasures in life and it makes you feel good to enjoy it.


I'd love to hear from you.
