may 19 2019

cake day !  come on now-- lets do more than 42 states of a cp giving a cake to a fire dept...  i lost traCK... SO IF YOU DO  TODAY LET ME KNOW... MAYBE MORE TO THE POINT... IF YOU DON'T CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHY NOT?  ONE LOUSY CUPCAKE????? ANYTHING...
I GET ALOT OF MILEAGE OUT OF TEH LIFE SAVERS I GIVE TO  THE POLICE-- I HAVEN"T BEEN TICKETED  IN DAYS NOW.  AND I DID HEAR A FEEDBACK BY WAY OF A POLICE WOMAN---SHE HEARD IN TEH  OFFICE " SOME CRAZY LADY WITH HUGE DOGS IN TEH CAR GAVE ME A PACK OPF LIFE SAVERS AND DIDN'T SAY A WORD "   LOVE IT !!-- IN MY CAREER I HAVE ONLY HAD 2 GUYS REFUSE-DOZENS  OF OTHERS LAUGH AND SMILE/.
***
JUAT ANOTHER  "USE" OF CRAZY ACRES.... I HAve come to realize this place is a destination  of fathers and children-- mostly boy children-- they come with the full knowledge that plenty of things will need physicL ATTENTION.. AND WE PROBABLY WILL HAVE THE NEEDED EQUIPMENT/ TOOLS -- LIKE YESTERDAY-- AND ALL THAT PIPE--
 A FATHER SON COMBINATION GOT ONE OF TEH CENTER HORIZONATALS PUT UP- LOOKS PERFECT... THAt happened after  
a coulle colege age kids and i measured teh height   OF TEH 4 "POSTS" THAT WILL HOLD TEH TOP OF THE TENT.
110-- 109-- 107.5--  116 INCHES FROM GROUND TO TOP OF POLE
 I MADE TEH EXECUTIVE DECISION  109 WOULD BE A GOOD NUMBER  110 ACCEPTABLE---- 
ALL THESE POSTS WERE 120 INCHES LONG-- TEH DIFFERENCE BEING THE HOLES IN THE GROUND BEFORE TEH CEMENT POUR. I ALSO MADE TEH EXECUTIVE DECISION THAT NO PIPE WOULD BE CUT WITHOUT MY AGREEING ON THE AMT CUT.  A CUP OF DIRT MADE TEH 107.5 EQUAL 109- AND WE STARTED....

IT WAS FASCINATING TO WATCH -- FOR VARIOUS REASONS- THE YOUNGER KIDS ( COLLEGE AGE) ALLOWED THEMSELVES TO BE CONFUSED WITH "ADDITIOHNAL FACTS" 
 I STUCK MY MEASUREING TAPE DOWN TEH HOLE OF TEH 116 PIPI AND FOUND  THE HOLE UNDER TEH CEMEMT WAS ONLY 4" DEEP- ONCE THAT 4" WAS IN THEIR HEADS  THEY COULD NOT FIGURE OUT ANY "CUT" 
  ( FOR THOSE OF YOU  NOTICING 116 + 4 = TEH 120" OR 10 FOOT PIPE I STARTED WITH..) THEY COUlD NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE THAT EQUATe TEH 109" WE WANTED ABOVE GROUND. and every time i asked why tehy said  cut off "XX"   tehy could not give me a reason-- but the things tehy said were said with great conviction. by giving them too much information they got all confused ( as often happens- particularly in..  --- well never mind--)  they could no longer see if the pipe was 116 and we needed 109 that we should cut off 7 inches. 
all i had to do was say  "what about the 4" in the ground?" and confusion set in..
these are college kids--i am not picking on them specifically,  what i am picking on is the lack of "experiences" that teach things you could never learn in school- or from a COMPUTER/CELL PHONE EXPERIENCE.
****
WHICH BRINGS ME TO HOW HOPELESSLY INADEQUATE IS MY EXPERIENCE WITH  THE SMART PHONES whcih are an extension of these kids brains.... -  - CLEARLY SMARTER THAN I AM.  AND MY SMARRT TV IN MY ROOM--- MY DAUGHTER- GWEN- GOT IT SET UP SO A KEYBOARD AND MOUSE WILL DO THINGS ON IT.  BUT I STILL CAN NOT GET it to do   ANY LOGIC I HAVE EVER KNOWN. SO BECAUSE OF SOME "KID"( BY MY STANDARDS)  AT THE LAST NURSING  HOME-- SHE SAID ALL I NEEDED WAS A FIRESTICK-  SHE SAID THEY WERE CHEAP---SO I WENT TO BEST BUY WITH A STRAIGHT FACE AND ASKED FOR A FIRESTICK- WHICH BY PRESENTING MY CHARGE CARD, I NOW OWN...

THE PATHETIC PART IS ... I AM VERY TIRED OF FAILING- AND AM TERRIFIED TO EVEN PLUG IT  IN--FURTHEREMORE-- TEH  INSTRUCKTONS- FORTUNATELY ONLY IN ENGLISH AND CHINESE-- SEEM SIMPL;E ENOUGH TO LOOK AT..
I  ADMIT-- I HAVE NOT READ TEHM  FOR FEAR OF BEING CONFUSED.
SO I QUIT-- I AM BAD.
*************
CUTTING AND PASTING... I CAN DO THAT

Today,  after spending 30 years in the South Pacific, and then spending 20 years in  the southwest desert  for the first  time I found a snake in my yard. No snakes in Hawaii, never a concern. Not so in the southwest desert. Rattlers abound.
 While reading on my lanai, birds began to raise a ruckus chirping loudly.  Zoey, my dog, ran to that area of the yard where birds were raising the  ruckus, and she began to bark loudly while backing away. Went to see  and there was a 6 FOOT SNAKE LYING AGAINST THE STUCCO WALL. Walking  over there to quickly get Zoey's attention to get her in the house before any harm could be done to her.
 Needless to say I was a mess to maneuver her back into the house. I did,  with the promise of a Greenie, her favorite snack.
 Then called the fire department, who in the desert remove snakes from people's homes, most often Rattlesnakes.  Fortunately they came and the snake was a Bullsnake, not a rattler.  They retrieved it, put it in a bucket to take out in the desert and release it. 
Needless to say it is a good thing that I am on blood pressure medicine!    S.

MAY 18 2019

ALIVE AND WELL...  enjoying my second cuppa---boy does it tast good. -
SITTING AROUND teh PREOP --- WITH NOTHING TO DO  WAITING FOR TEH JOY JUICE TO START, I HAD PLENTY TO WATCH--- MOST NOTEABLEY

I HAVE READ TEH ABOVE STATEMENT .......................................DATE..........
and it was the first thing on the second page.. so heaven knows waht i signed??? -- i am sure -- the usuaL

 BUT ONE OF THOSE INADVERTENT  ERRORS-- THE KIND THAT MADE AL GORE LOOSE FLORADA  ( IN CASE YOU AL LDON'/T KNOW THAT HANGING CHAD BIT...)

BASICALLY TEH BALLOT HAD 2 PAGES-  AND HOLES IN TEH MIDDLE TO PUNCH OUT THE CHADS
TEH FIRST PAGE LISTED BUSH  THEN GORE  THEN JOE SMITH   ETC

 SECOND PAGE  JOE DOAKS, NED BLAH ETC
 SO IF YOU WANTED GORE YOU PUNCHED TEH SECOND HOLE-- RIGHT??? NO  THAT WAS FOR TEH FIRST GUY ON THE SECOND PAGE...  INADVERTANT ERROR BY DESIGN? 
I BOUGHT ONE OF THOSE VOTING MACHINES-- ON EBAY  WHICH IS HOW I SAW THAT... STILL IN THE CELLAR-- IF ANYONE AT DOG FEST WANTS TO DIG IT OUT.....
SO SIGNING FOR SURGERY   HAVIN G ""READ THE ABOVE"" AND TEH ABOVE I S BLANK... COUDL BETHE SAME THING--
***
my observatios  WENT ON... 
 WITH THE AGE  RELIGION AND ETHNICITY -----MY ETHNICITY WAQS LISTED "NOT HISPANIC-"- WHICH I THOUGHT AMUSING/   THERE'S A BUNCH OF  ETHNICS I AM NOT... THEY MUST KNOW ABOUT THE 4 YEARS I FAILED TO LEARN  ANY 'SPANISH IN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE- 
THE EXTENT OF MY LEARNING.....   '.ESSO SI QUE ES t "  SPELLS SOCKS AND IS TEH PUNCH LInE TO A COMPLICATED JOKE I CAN'T REMEMBER
**
 teh rest of teh time 1:45 to 6:30  i made monkey fists  for all teh nurses and doctors   and  planned  the sequence of how to put the donkey feeder together.
****
i bet people don't know....  instead of screwing 2 pioeces of pipe togeter---  tehre is a new gismo which involved rubber washer and compression-- which  teh guy in ipsewich- tried to put togetehr...  it apparently works when packed in soil-- but had a slight wobble  which he saw as a failure in mid air...-- i heard goldie in my ear-- who said "broomstick"""  which -- shoved down teh center.  firmed up the whole thing... and the wobble--- turns out ---may be critical in getting the pipes lined up in the first place...  wobble is sometimes good with my  kind of tape meaqsuring--- i have been too long on the idiot end...
***
then they gave me a paper which said  don't do anything involving decisions or lifting-- that cuts out alot right there too..
so to heck withit all-- i will go listen to my  books on cd's in my car--- comfortaqble seaT   ADJUSTABLE HEAT AND A/C ---- WHY NOT?.
I HEAR TELL A FATHER TYPE AND 2 SONS ARE COMING TOMORROW - SO BETWEEN THE FATHER LIFTER AND SON TO CUT 50 PIECES OF HAY STRINGS-- I HOPE PROGRESS WILL BE MADE ON TEH FEED-- THIS IS GOING TO TAKE A WHILE--- ESPECIALLY AS  IT MAY TAke 4 people to set it on it's feet... 
stay tuned.

may 17 2019

NPO after midnight-- nothing per oral????  usually it is teh dogs...today me-- just water..i have a surgical date mid afterrnoon...-- that is a long time from the midnight-- i did manage a chicken alfreado at 11:30 but  i do miss teh coffee...
*****
i wish i knew more about alot of things...so i coud understand why these nursing homes have that awful game show/ commercial tv on when i do believe with some schmartz it coudl be hooked up to explore and if not us, the  ocean goldfish  camersa.    we have an adult day care center to do today and i have suggested judy take a poicture of teh                       
tv/internet stuff at each place and get a file togeter to present to cummings.-- so that they can go fix it.
 we have a pretty good data file of where we have been etc...  need to bulk it out... and get one day care center written up  for quick  understanding--  adn then have  a bunch of other.
i found out  yesterday that these "activities directors" have a group/club... so that is a way to contact many....
i have yet to verify that charlie of explore  would think this is a good idea..
***
in teh meantime---leaners and lifters---    also yesterday-- a typical situation of "wow how come i never knew all these wonderful dogs were available to go visit my mother in the nursing home..... -- could you come to my kids  kindergarden--  and could we bring a bus load to your farm to have lunch with teh doggy atmosphere?"  before any thought of "what supports you  and can i help with that.?"  tehn teh 85 year old guy-- in a lovely very ex-ensive car  came for teh tour-- and i thought "great maybe he can help"  and after 4 hours of showing him around and explqaing  how we get dogs imported.. he finally said-- " how do i apply to get one of these dogs donated to me?"
  deep pockets, short arms.
the poem says  20 leaners to 1  lifter--  we do have some. lifters...... immediately  i thiought of teh  guy who just offered me solutions to my pipe dream  - and in the meantiem bakes dog cookies-
often people think-- what can i do to help--- thie is a good thing--- but even better.....Sometimes it is what are my capabilities...... and how can that be helpful...... as opposed to "i  can't help shoveling snow because my back so i will do nothing. ....." --- great-- so fold laundry !!  do something besides "take" 
*****
so i tried to get a manual for my samsung smart tv....-- gwen got the mouse and keyboard hooked up to it... but i still need some clue--- so i went to my computer.. carefully typing in teh 47 digit model  number etc  and got the message that teh manual is available on teh samsung smart tv...  which is what i was trying to operate...
i have not continued at teh moment
****
kabota came and put the mower on the new little tractor--- well littler thattn the bigger one -- it has a catching device of 3 bags which it fills one at a time...if i would just read teh manual--- i have put that manual asside for bud tio decipher
it is a long way from a push mower !!  but i think might "vaqcuum"  stuff-- like maybe pine needles.
****
i do not expect to be kept overnight- i can rememeber my husband saying "don't worry about the surgeon, worry about the gass passer." 
*** 
i bet someone does mail call...

MAY 16 2019

I HAD AN EMAIL THIS MORNING ABOUT LIFTERS AND LEANERS--  BEING IN A DOG FRAME  ---SOMEHOW I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE ABOUT DOGS LIFTING LEGS- HOWEVER IT WAS A DELIGHTFUL OLD POEM ABOUT  THE WORLD'S MASSES  BEING DIVIDED INTO 2 CLASSES- THE PEOPLE WHO LIFT AND TEH PEOPLE WHO LEAN-- IT IS TOO LONG FOR ME TO TYPE-- MAYBE LINDA CAN RE-D O IT FOR US...
I AM DELIGHTED WITH THE  CONCEPT OF ALL TEH LIFTERS WE HAVE IN OUR COMMUNITY..  ALL THE $10 CHICKEN BRICKS AND POO PICKERS TO KEEP US "ABLE" --WHAT A great group--- because this poem goes on to say in the world " there is only one lifter to twenty who  lean..." 
which makes our group exceptional to have accumulated teh higher percentage of lifters.
and teh lifting of spirits is a very valid lifting project !!  perhaps one of the more valuable ones.
that leaves teh pipe lifting to younger bodies...
**
next pipe problem is  it occurrs to me that having the horizontal pipe paired in equal legnths would be spectacular-- sounds simple... except we started with holes in the stone dust-- tehn cement-- problem is all those holes are different depths-- i thought of cutting pipe-- can be done... but putting 2 inches of stone dust back in th eholes might be easier and still effective.-- so if we just concentrate on teh above concrete measurement  we could manage.
**
*i do not know why- at one point in my career i was desparate to own those rolling step ladders you see in home depot etc... we now have 3-- two -- in green---that get you up to easily reach a 10 feet  pole and a shortie up 4 feet ( in purple)-- i do not know how i would gt these pips up for teh tarp  without  those rolling ladders-- just one of the misc thigs around that make somw  wierd thigs possible.

one of the green ones is being used in a building which shall remain nameless--- because if we pu in a flight of stairsw we would be billed for a two story building...
 that is somewhat like the donkey feeder--- if we have a tarp for teh roof, it is a temp tent- even if eventually teh underneeth  pipe would easily support a flimjsy plastic. roof. 

oh we do have scaffolding and tha lil gianT  ladder... but the rollers aRE LOVELY. 
****
 NOW FOR TEH EXCITEMTNT -- GABBY IS DRIPPING A FEW RED DROPS  !  WOOOWOOWOOOOOO
NOW I HAVE TO GO LOOK UP WHO SHE IS GENETICALLY AND HOW MANY LITTERS OF WHAT KIND OF PUPS HAS SHE HAD...

MAYBE WE MIGHT HAVE PUPS IN 9 PLUS 63 DAYS

may 1 2019

  YOU ALL MAY NOT BELIEVE THIS, BUT THERE ARE A BUNCH OF THINGS I DARE NOT MENTION- DOESN'T LEAVE ALOT...  
LIKE MAYBE--- THE DONKEY "MAYBE" APPARENTLY HAS A COUGH--  I HAVE NOT SEEN IT... BUT I HAVE EMAILS---"PLEASE GIVE HER SOME ANTIBIOTICS".  
 ALONG WITH TEH  INTERNEGATIVES WHO SAY  " CARLENE WON'T CALL THE VET OR GIVE HER ANTIBIOTICS."  
FROM WHAT I SEE SO FAR, SHE LOOKS HEAVEY - AS IN HEAVES-- A PERMANENT BUT NOT FATAL LUNG  PROBLEM  OF DIFFICULTY EXHALING...  THERE IS A HUMAN EQUIVALENT  -- IT IS HELPED BY NOT FEEDING HAY ON THE GROUND AS EH DUST FROM TEH HAY AGGRIVATES IT.    WE ALREADY FEED IN BAGS OR THE FEEDER.. SO UNTIL SHE COMES DOWN WITH SOM MORE SYMPTOMS OF SOMETHING ELSE, THER E IS NO POINT IN CALLING vet ...  HOWEVER   IF HE IS HERE, I WILL MENTION IT.
*****
INTERNEGATIVES !!!  I JUST MADE UP A VERY USEFUL WORD !!!  UNHAPPY  PEOPLE  ON THE INTERNET JUST WAITING TO  PUT FORTH ANY PERCIEVED NEGATIVE.
*****
PROBLEM OF THE DAY   - HOW TO GET TEH 12 ' PIPE SCREWED INTO THE  RIGHT ANGLE PIEcEs  THAT SCREWS INOT THE 10' tall  uprights to hold up teh tarp/canvas..

i know  of  only 2 pieces of 21 foot pipe in ipswich-- which  means to measure eh exact distance befor threading could be a problem...

exact measure  ... ARE  not wordS  in my normal vocabulary  so ---- i will need 6 of those "cross members... so i will staqrt with the longest span.... which if not correct, could be  cut again and used inteh 2nd longest span...  etc.....

i will feel better if i can get 2 cross members done right...
otherwise i wll have a bunch  of short \pieces of pipe all over craazy acres...
*****
SEVERAL PEOPLE WERE HAPPY TO GET MR MOON'S CONTACT INFORMATION.... TO ORDER THINGS FROM CHINA...  I HAVE TO SAY, HE WAS MOST PLEASENT TO DEAL WITH---   AND WHEN THINGS GOT BEYOND ME   THERE IS  CP  "TINA SHONK  "   clsmovynut@aol.com... IN CALIFORNIQA  HAS BEEN A PERFECT PERSON OT DEAL WITH THINGS LIKE WESTERN UNIONN
*****
HERE IS SOMEONE TO WHOM I GAVE ADVICE WHILE NOT TOTALLY AWAKE.... SOMETIMES TEH BEST KIND I GUESS---
****
After today’s ( TUESDAY'S)blog I want to give encouragement. I am the woman from Louisiana who woke you 2 Sunday evenings. You told me “no” in a round about way due to distance. BUT, what you gave me was the baton. “Let your daughter do everything for the dog.” “Why are you tethered to the dog? You must not trust him.” “Did you but Chick bricks?” Lol! I have looked, watched, learned and am working with my 11yr old to train her new service Dane. She lost her mobility Dane back in Jan. 
It takes time! Lots of time! I’m ok with that but most do not realize nor would they place the value on the animal it really has. 
So...thank you for the “no” Thank you for the advice and all you and your staff do that is available to go find and study. 
As for the screen heroes that bash you, you know the drill...it’s a very strange place we live in today

may 14 2019
animals avoid uncomfortable situations-- people seek them out --dog lying on couch--vs---- man struggling up mt everest...this basic insanity is maybe why i prefer animals.---- as a species we do not keep our mind on  any one goal... amazon and marketing get us to buy  and do things that don't make sense....you build a house to enjoy the comforts  and then go camping to lie  on the hard ground  amid teh bugs and  bears..  we take up ---painful hobbies like  riding  on  horses-- or in boats--- those  are obcessions with  an extrodnRY ammount of prep time to time spent actually  enjoying the named pursuit...
 making me wonder if teh  prep and upkeep is actrually the critical part-- namely the inane art of "i have to go sand the boat"  which can be any time all winter... or... " i have to go feed" - which has about a 12 hour window...   horses demand a schedule... so do dogs.... this is a good thing.

the overnight news decided that the people in communities where  life esxp[ectancy was over 100 had a few things in common...first was-- they had a schedule, then-- tehy ate nuts and berries-  and 3rd  they  lived in a multigenerational 
home/compound. .. oh yes--  and drank wine

i am delighted that our dogs help- so many people do things they  couldn't or wouldn't do  BD  ( before dog)-- we go to extrodonary extremes to  train our dogs to help walk and  balance   -- and be accepted in all public places-- but i get many calls a day for people who want a service dog  basically for emotional support- i don't know how you train a dog to help with that-- because the help that all dogs give anyone is not "trainable" - what is trainiable is manners  to be   joy to own and be acceptable in public.. i don't know how " they" will get around what is an emotional support  service dog...  but i sure can spot a dog that is not a service dog based purely on manners.

i am back to -- the airport-- i would have  a sign " all service animals must be stripped of all equipment and pass thru the xray alone." --- mostly that would stop people before they try to fake it... there might be a few  loose goats or turkeys  running around  but that would be the exception...
****
we get alot of inquiries about service dogs--  they have to fall into 2 catagories - people we could possibly help- and others- for whatever reason- are people we  do not think we could come up with a dog to help them-- mostly   that we do not have an unlimited supply of dogs-- teh people to whom i hav had to say no, also fall into 2 catagories... those  who  accept our limitations and go elsewhere for other solutions  and those who sit on the couch here and ask me why not them--- i feel terrible about it... but not every problem is solved by a dane.  there are a few who are  upset by  the  "no"  -- and the internet gives them perfect place to tell the world  what a terribly person i am... i figuer  i am in for 2 of those a month... 
 so letters  fom people who have our dogs and are doing a wonderful job  are nice for me to hear too.
*******
here is teh contact info from mr moon...- just a gentle  reminder that he sends about evry 3 months.

Good day Carlene,

It is a long time no news from you, hope everything is going well!

Is there any new project or re-order we can help in the recent days?

Any news updated will be appreciated!

Best Regards,
Moon Zhang

JUMOMMETREEE  LOVE IT .!!...----HERE'S A GREEAT CONVERSATION  BETWEEN DONKS  WITH A PICTURE  OF TEH 2  STANDING AT A RIGHT ANGLE... 
***

FROM TEH CP GROUP......
Good affernoon SheePees  My Moma and  I are showing  Meesh Cawwene dat  we been studing   Jumommetreeee. We pwacticin  wight  angleese

Exceptional

They are bright donkeys

Jumommetreeees was class in which my math education went south Nish wight angleses
  
She's  acute donk

An'eef Meester  Joshowwah wud join ush we weel be an  ishswshowleesh twiangle

We could call him Johowwahhypotanews

Wight... becauz he's a beeeeeeg boy ! Shee? I unnerstand Jumommetrees  vewy well , I'z vewy vewy shmaart

AAAAAA Plus !!

Just as long as she's not being obtuse.
***
NOW THAT IS A GREAT CONVERSATION !!
****
i have not finished teh " CAFE DONK"  and ----already a complaint----it is comical really-10 years?15 years?  AGO... janine suggested we have a place for people to sit and watch teh donkeys- and i never had teh ttime/money to put it together- i NOW  have broken ALL construction record to have gone from conception to functionality in less than a week- mostly thanks to the company executives who sat on teh ground with screwdrivers and spoons and dug 30 holes for teh pvc pip "holes" like sonna tubes..   I  ORDERED A WHITE TARP FOR COVER... DESIGNED A STRANGE PIECE TO HOLD IT TOGETEHR AND FOUND A WILLING WELDER....   AND STILL to find the 1.5 gAV pipe....  i have bought out 3 home depos-- lowes didn't hav any--- teh commercial plumbing place had none-- and the pipe wholesale place would not sell me any AND I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH YET..  THANKFULLY SOME OF YOU CP'S HAVE SUGGESTED AMESBURY INDUSTRIAL SUPPLY  AS A SOURCE...-- I WILL GO THERE THIS MORNING.

SO THE FIRST EMAIL I OPEN THIS MORNING APPARENTLY IS A REACTION TO SOME FACEBOOK COMMENT ABOUT  SCOOTER KAREN NOT BEING ABLE TO GET HEER SCOOTER UP ON THE CONCRETE PAD..

I AM HELD HOSTAGE BY THE THREATS FROM FACEBOOK COMMENTS-- BECAUSE IF I RESPOND WITH WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SAY, I AM RUDE AND  INSENSATIVE---

I AM THRILLED  THAT YOU ALL-- INCLUDING SCOOTER KAREN--- ENJOY THE DONKEYS--   .. THEY ARE LOVELY ANIMALS AND VERY INTERESTING TO WATCH.... I WILL GET AN ACCESS FIXED UP SOMEHOW-- I DON'T KNOW HOW YET-- .. SORRY-- I AM WAITING FOR GOLDIE TO EXPLAIN IT TO ME....

.DOG FEST IS COMING...---- SO -- HERE-- YOU  CP'S  CAN MANAGE THE NEXT PROBLEM......
I HAVE A VERY SENSIBLE RULE OF NO T TO FEED TEH DONKEYS BY HAND -- YOU MUST USE THE FRY PANS I HAVE THERE-- SOME ON A 3 FOOT  HANDLE--- WHICH KAREN COULD USE NOW FROM THE SIDE.... TIL I FIGURE OUT SOMETHING BETTER... 

why that stupid rule????? if THE DONLKS ARE  feed by hand, the donkey learns to reach for people's hands... fingers are about the size of carrots  or other treats... one bite of a KIDS  finger could put service dog out of business- if the donkeys are trained to reach for  a fry pan...  THERE IS much less risk.  MY DECISION FOR 30 YEARS OF HAVING  DONKEYS IN PUBLIC.  NO EXCEPTIONS- MY RULE... YOU WANT TO DO IT OTHERWISE- GO HAVE YOUR OWN  DONKEY FARM.

 THE WORLDS WORST TIME OF YEAR IS  CHRISTMAS....TEH CANDY CANE TIME WHEN TEH DONKEYS -- WHO SEE PEPPERMINT CANDY AS TEH  ULTIMATE TREAT- AND THEY ARE THE EXACTI SIZE OF A KIDS FINGERS....I HAVE ALSO  USED A DIFFERENT TECHNIQUE WHEN THEY WERE IN THE HARNESS AS SANTA'S 8 TINY REINDEER...  JANINE OR I  HAVE DEVISED OTHER WAYS... BUT NOT TO BE DONE BY ANYONE ELSE....  WE WOULD TAKE EH TREAT AND TOUCH THEM BETWEEN TEH EYES AND RUB IT DOWN  THEIR FACE A DN SLIP IIT IN THEIR MOUTH..... FOR THE SAME REASON....   THEY MUST LEARN  THAT TREATS DO NOT COME FROM KIDS HANDS THAT ARE JUST REACHING FOR THEIR NOSE PAT.... EVEN WHNE THE KID HAS BEEN SLOBBERING ON A PEPPERMINT  CANDY CANE.. 

SO NOW...  LET ME REPEAT- TEH DONKEYS ARE TO BE GIVEN TREATS ONLY   FROM THE  9 INCH FRY PANS I HAVE  SITTING AND HANGING AROUND THE AREA--- OR TOSS TEHM IN THE FEEDER-- IF THOSE PANS ARE NOT AVAILABLE ... THEN DO NOT FEED TEH DONKEYS.  PERIOD ! 

SO I WILL NOW ASK ALL CP'S TO HELP WITH THIS ---

if you ever see anyone feed the donkeys out of their hand-- without using the frying pans that i have sitting right by teh donks. PLEASE  take a photo of that person eeithr on camera-- or wi th your cell phone. i might  have to ask them to leave and might even have to get rid of the donkey involved.

IT IS  A PRETTY SIMPLE RULE..  MY 9" PURPLE FRY PANS ( SO GENEROUSLY SENT BY A CP..) ARE PERFECT AND AVAILABLE... USE THEM.
