    Goodness. She is enchanting. Where in the world did you find that montage? Uncle Dick must have loved her extension out of those jumps.

    I want to start a petition that only donut spins that do not have her lovely position with knee and foot gorgeously placed (neither dropped) have to be called something else. They are (IMO) not worthy of the label.

    She is also credited with inventing both the camel spin and the lay back spin. (Gotta love Wikipedia)

    I'm rather disappointed. I had always secretly hoped the originator was Krispy Kreme or Maple bar. Oh my god an apple fritter fresh from the microwave. :cheer:

    I always think of donuts when I hear about the donut spin. I hope someday we see a Cinnamon Roll spin, that sounds delicious. :swoon:

    ^ if we ever run into each other at a competition I will treat you to a donut.

    I tend to go once everytime one comes within a two hour distance. It will probably be a high-tech 2023 donut. :swoon:
