Dunkie Day

Today is dad's tour of barns and it's the day we wait for all year long!
Dad teaches timber frame class once a year in Manchester and it happened this past Saturday and Sunday.
Monday is what he calls his tour of barns day and what happens is that the students all come to tour our barns and lots more in the area but the REALLY important part about this day is the FOOD!
The students get coffee breaks and lunch breaks, which means DUNKIN DONUTS and these only happen once a year!
OMG! Cookies too??!!
Yes, I know, mom! We're supposed to be working and cleaning up and not just eating like piggies but it's so much fun discovering all the yummy stuff that's in the workshop and snacking! Someone spilled something here! Not to worry - I'll clean it up, mom!What???? Tortilla chips too!! Blue ones!!!!
Healthy food? Why would they want to go and do that, mom?!
A cucumber! I love cucumbers!
What a fun afternoon! We sure didn't mind helping mom clean up one bit did we, Mitch!
Why can't dad have his tour of barns more than once a year?!

So until next time..................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

OMG.....That looked so delicious! I think your dad should have barn stuff every weekend or atleast the dunkin donuts.

Petra said...

Maggie and Mitch, you guys are just SPOILED! Do you realize how good you have it?!

I get stuck eating boring dog food day in and day out. No matter how long I let it sit in my bowl, humans around here just don't get the hint that I'd rather have better food to eat.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Wow, you really get paid big time for helping your dad on barn touring day. But bananas are good too -- if you're a woofie. We kitties are too fond of them.

The Army of Four said...

Mmmm! That all looked good to me! The bananananas, too!
PS: I love your pink collar, Maggie. You look very pretty in pink. Not to sound cliche or anything. Woo.

Kelli said...

Hi Maggie & Mitch!
It looks like you got lots of yummy things to eat! I never get donuts or cookies! Maybe I should come live at your house!

Why is we not surprised to see y'all stuffing jelly doughnuts down those gullets. There is mor DDs in New England than Mr. Carter's total little liver pill count. We probably have more DDs than you cuz we get about once a month. No chocolate ones for us though. We will save you food picture and add them to our M&M eating gallery.

Raising Addie said...

OMD you guys are soooo very lucky!!

We are off of our Sunday morning donut run since Addie has to lose weight. She can't even have one little donut hole!!

We are sorry we have been MIA for a little while. Things have been crazy around our house and when it came down to it there just were not enough hours in the day.

Those paintings in the previous post are just beautiful!!!

We will catch up soon.

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie and Lucie

Hi Maggie and Mitch!

I love your blog, not only do I see you two, but I can drool at all the food you get!!

We are back blogging now after my Jeannie's big adventure, although it is taking sometime to get around to all the blogs, she is feeling a bit jet lagged after her 23 hour journey to Down Under!

lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxx

oh and Jeannie xxxxxxxxx

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

and 23 hour journey back, she told me to add!


i said...

Is it a year already? I sure remember the donuts last year. Time flies!

Sally said...

OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH - donuts - I LOVE DONUTS - do you think D could find a reason to invite people over to then get donuts? Not anything to do with woodworking though - she ended up sanding her hand by accident. Very long story.

Paddy can have the cucumber - can you post some donuts my way? Maybe just even a little cookie?


Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

OMD I am hopping on a plane to come on the barn tour! Am I too late?!? OMD!

Martha said...

We would really like to come on the next barn tour with you! No, we know you are thinking it is just for the donuts - but no we have a professional interest!!
Of course we could help with the donuts, the cookies and the general clearing up whilst we are there. We will pass on the cucumber!
We thought you had a pretty collar on Maggie in one of your pictures - Bailey likes pink collars!

Roots said...

Donuts, cookies and tortilla chips??? Wow!!! I am jealous!!! I only get that kind of stuff once a year too :-(

Patience-please said...

Oh how we miss us some Dunkin' Donuts. Our servant used to stop at Dunkin' Donuts on the way to every dog show, field trial, whatever because she said they were good luck! And she shared! And she stopped on the way home just because she's hog. But she shared again.
There aren't any out here where we live now. (howls of sadness) But they started selling Dunkin' Donuts coffee in the grocery store. Fat lot of good it does us.

Hero said...

You two are soooo lucky! I've gotten to taste a donut only once in my life and I have to wonder if I'll ever get the opportunity again. I remember it being very good, but then my mean mom gobbled up the great majority of it. How selfish of her! I wish I had hoomans who shared as much as yours do!

Peanut said...

Eating is much more fun then cleaning
