Save Beverley from Weight watchers.

Tomorrow- 9/7/08

Beverley is doing a doughnut ride. Bit unfair to ask one of our members to eat as many doughnuts as she can- so I have a suggestion

On your ride on Sunday- Find a cafe and have a doughnut or 6 to save Beverley from Having to do a century next week in the rain to work off the excess her ride could cost her

And Pics for proof would be nice.

We may not be able to join her on the ride- but we might aswell join her in cyberspace to show solidarity.

I'd be more than happy to eat half a dozen ...... then............. hello acid reflux!

There was a big pink bakery box on the table at work yesterday. Good things come in big pink bakery boxes, and this one contained donuts - lots of them. I stopped and looked and considered taking one, then I thought about how I'd feel about an hour later. The rest of the day would be one long yawn-fest.

Half a dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts here. When I reached for
#7 I thought I'ld lose my whole arm!!!!!

Sorry, no pictures for proof as the delectible little critters never
even made it home before they were all gobbled up.

Don't you just love how the members of this Great Forum will come
together, at great expense and sacrifice, to help out a fellow forum
member? Now what's the date of the Great Pie Ride?

Happy (burp um...excuse me please) Trails

I was thinking the same thing - thanks to Stepfam to clear up this question. My pie ride will most likely be here: http://www.lakesidefarmscidermill.com/
