…Alaskan Doughnuts, that is…much bigger ones than pictured at left. Though, let me assure you, this freshly baked treat from Quality Bakery was a more than adequately satisfying snack for me this morning.
For the past few years, ever since that infamous photo taken by Griff Wigley in 2003, the local paparazzi hound me as I do my rounds of downtown, hoping to catch me with a doughnut in my hand…or better yet…mouth.
But heck, it’s for a good cause…
CRAZY DAZE…that annual summer celebration of shopping locally.
