Les reminded me about small towns down below and you know how it is - you live in the sticks but hear about things. And wonder and wish. But in a town too small for a fast food joint, where you CANT expect a job licking stamps or making copies or wherever those urbanites get their SUV money, there's little point in getting your hopes up. Best you can do is probably throw something together from what's in the house and just pretend it's the real thing right? Well no more buddy! This old guy got hizz! Now i don't care if the tank is empty or there's upcoming railroad tracks or the IRS guy keeps calling - they can't scare me now cuz i fixed it!
Actually it fixed itself, but i was there when it happened. See, it was muggy and i woke early & needed to warm up Suzn's van & find a closer hydraulics place, so during my 6 AM coffee at the cafe, i decided to take the 2-hour drive and check around Fargo. Turned the radio on, opened the windows, set the cruise and away i went. Well, to my knowledge i must admit there's no decent hydraulics place anywhere near there, (Lincoln Nebraska maybe - bit of a reach) BUT, i went right past a Krispy Kreme joint! I've heard from Letterman and you city birds and the more traveled law enforcers about Krispy Kreme, and i gotta tell ya - DARN good! At this very moment, i have what's left of 2 dozen donuts on the kitchen counter, and i'll guarantee these won't go to waste - go getcher own Krispy Kremes :)

I just had my first krispy kremes here not too long ago myself and if I could get them any closer to home I would be in really bad trouble.

There was a place in round rock texas that used to be called the pig pen I think. I don't know if it's still there but they served doughnuts the size of dinner plates. The only competititon as far as I'm concerned for kripsy kremes.
