    I have a male and female tuxedo Maine coons. They literally play fetch, take their toys out of their 'toy box', greet me at the door when I come home, etc..they probably kept me sane and alive these last couple years more than I even realize.

    Great to hear your story, I`m going to go through the process with very low expectations, my approach is get my medical history and anything else above that is pure gravy but I`d be lying if I said I wasn`t hoping for more than just the med history. I`ll keep you posted for sure

    hmmmmmm................I dont think I've ever met a doughnut I didnt like.

    Although if any of you are in Central Mass a must is to check out Rocco's.

    https://www.roccosdoughnutcompany.com/our-doughnuts

    But be forewarned he usually sells out by noon. And then closes.

    Linda’s in Belmont makes a fantastic donut if no one has had them. There use to be a place down the street called Ohlin’s that I liked better but it burned down.

    OK, it's hot now, AZ
    I worked in Portland for almost two years (about two blocks from the Art museum, interestingly enough) Holy Donuts are indeed fantastic, but they definitely have a different texture and flavor from regular donuts. I can see why some wouldn't like them, but if you accept that they are not going to taste like a sugary donut, you can enjoy them for what they are. The sea salt ones are really freaking good, but the maple bacon are tops.

    If you are in Portland and want a more traditional donut experience, go to Tony's Donut's. Sugary, sweet goodness.

    (Is it any wonder I'm now on a diet?) :laugh:

    We didn't enjoyed at all, we were really excited for that trip for different reasons. None of them really materialized besides the oysters and the brown butter lobster rolls at Eventide.
    We got there last Saturday for supper, the town was dead.
    Probably all downtown at the tourist traps.

    We had plan to go Bob's clam hut and have our fix for fried seafood, specially those juicy big belly clams.
    What a let down from the get go. Only thing we enjoyed besides Eventide was the cheesesteak from Amato's.
    So from there we decided to go to Philly and have the real thing.

    In fairness, we were just passing through on our way to Augusta, so it wasn't like we stopped and explored the area. It just looked to me like it was a really worn down place, my wife said the same thing. My daughter who lives further north told me that there are a lot of issues there these days

    Union Square donuts are also delightful.

    Sneaky under the radar spot is Donut Villa in Malden. They also make french toast with their glazed, but I have not tried that yet.

    We've said the same thing. It's not just old... its worn down and depressing. You try to compensate by having great food and it gets even more depressing. I mean from the coffee, donuts and just about most of the over priced food for the tourists.

    Mine (Frodo Baggins) fetches, comes to a whistle and likes that laser toy. Frodo has 7 (instead of the usual 4) toes on his feet. He has toe and ear tuffs. He was named for a Hobbit due to his large hairy feet.

    Bonuts are my favorite thing in the universe. Biscuit Love is my #1 recommendation when people go to Nashville.

    Hmmm I don't believe that I have. I've only been to Nashville twice but I love it. Super fun city.
