Happy National Doughnut Day!

05 Jun

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –



What a wonderful day.  Not only is it Friday but it’s also National Donut Day!  Who could ask for anything more?  It doesn’t matter what kind you like – partake in a doughnut today.  There’s many places even offering a free doughnut just for this one day – National Donut Day.  In our area, Krispy Kreme is offering a free one.  So for today, splurge and eat one to celebrate.  But the main question is – can you just eat one?

History of National Donut Day – did you know that this day was created by the Salvation Army in 1938?  It was created as a fundraiser to help the needy during the Great Depression and to honor the women who served doughnuts to military members during World War I.  About 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to America troops in France during the war.  And the kicker – Salvation Army
s’ Ensign Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance cleverly thought of frying the doughnuts in the troops’ helmets.  How creative!

Whatever flavor you decide to pick – enjoy this holiday.  I’m sure that little chompers we call Bacon will enjoy a couple.  Heck, I might even too if the Hotel Thompson throws me out a couple – hint hint.

Happy National Doughnut Day!

    A doughnut…what a name….he’s made of dough and is nuts. What a combination….he has enough problems without me chasing him to have a taste. MOL(((Shoko)))
