Oh this is a nice photograph of two men having fun. And the idea of food sounds good to.

I posted a story about my wife, of 52 years, last radiation treatment for breast cancer as well as our encounter with President Bush's airplane on our Nature walk yesterday.

I just ate a bag of candied almonds. But now I want some donuts.

Fabulous photo! Are they sweet or savory?

Oya said...

They are sweet. This donats can be prapred two ways. When somebody dies, usually they give away salty ones, when it's a birthday celebration; sweet :)
