According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, the following definitions can be applied to "donuts," which is the Americanized spelling of "doughnuts."
1 : a small usually ring-shaped piece of sweet fried doughThe following YouTube video clip is a demonstration of the third definition, done not by a car, but by an Amish buggy.
2 : something (such as a mathematical torus) that has a round shape like a doughnut
3 : a controlled skid that sends an automobile into a tight circle of at least 360 degrees —usually used in the phrase "do donuts"
I probably wouldn't have shared this clip here except that this occurred in the neighboring small town of Grabill. So this is one of "our" Amish.
Following is a little map of the area where I live. I thought it would give you an idea of how the communities that I sometimes talk about here are situated in relation to each other.
The tiny map in the upper left-hand corner shows the state of Indiana and how it is divided into counties. The county highlighted in red is Allen County, where Fort Wayne is the largest city. Actually, Fort Wayne is the second-largest city in the state, after the state capitol, Indianapolis.
Huntertown (northwest of Fort Wayne) is where I lived when I had the horses. Doug and I currently live in Harlan, northeast of Fort Wayne. Grabill, where the video clip was taken, is about four miles northwest of Harlan. New Haven is where our church is.
Speaking of our church, here is a picture of it:
This photo was taken in 2013. A lot of work has been done on the church since then, so I really need to get an updated photo of it.
I hope you've enjoyed this little tour of my home area and that the Amish video clip gave you a chuckle.
