Happy National Doughnut Day!

Hi Everybody! I'm back! & what a wonderful way to celebrate today cuz its NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY! Here I am above trying to tell Mr. Big Bird that my snout is not a dark chocolate covered long-john doughnut...but he is intent on taking a nibble...
Since my peoples came back from new or leans - which is really called Naworlins by everybody that lives there, they have been telling me all about the wonderful foodables they ate...& I thought I'd share the pic above of the Beignets & Cafe au Lait from Cafe du Monde since its National Doughnut Day...Cafe du Monde is famous for these two things...& only these two things...beignets are yummy deep fried chunks of dough sprinkled (make that drenched) in powdered sugar...you can tell who has been to Cafe du Monde while walking around Naworlins cuz they all look like they have been in a flour fight...In the 4 days that my peoples were there - they ate at Cafe du Monde 3 times...I think my mom/secretary is still on a sugar high...
& lookie here! A blue doggie! There was an art exhibit of the blue doggies by artist George Rodrigue...its called RODRIGUE'S LOUISIANA:Forty Years of Cajuns, Blue Dogs, and Beyond Katrina...& there was a gallery in the French Quarter that sold his paintings of the blue doggies & they were really expensive...like $40,000...& my peoples didn't even bring one home for me...pooh.

I'm supposed to let you all know that my mom/secretary is WAY BEHIND in getting to all your bloggies...she visits but then doesn't leave comments...whats up with that? So she needs to work on that...& also work on telling you all about Naworlins in the next few posts.

Happy National Doughnut Day everyone!

Love & Licks,
Randi

How did I not know it was doughnut day??? My ma ape brought back some blue dogs from New Or Leans (reproductions, obviously, since she did not win the lottery and if she did it would go into the chicken back fund).

ps. The new guy is furr-ever! My ma ape will video our duets which have become more regular. He screams, I croon.
pps. I hope you will not fall for the younger man...

What on earth is a doughnut Randi?

Anyway apparently mistress wants to see silly old tourism shots of New Or Leans. And flowers,

Myself I am far more interested in our dinner date. It's sounding very good.

Oh wow, do those doughnuts ever look good! Look at all that sugar! Mmmmm... Did you get any?

Since you say it's National Doughnut Day, I am going to get my humans to make me a doughnut. With LOTS of powdered sugar. Hee hee.

I hope you have a grrrrEAT weekend,

We've never been to that place called New or Leans......but those powdered sugar drenched yummies would make my mom gain a lot of poundage!

Hope you got some doughnuts today!

I have a stuffed blue dog, but no doughnuts, so what is that all about. I am confused .... or maybe just drunk.

Mom is drooling bigtime at the French Market doughnuts, Randi! She says they're to-die-for! We wouldn't know because we've never had them, poor unloved doggies that we are!

Love ya lots,
