in my professional opinion... moxie will deliver thursday- she is extremely comfortable and lying on the sofa snoring... but she has to do something soon...
meanwhile chaos tribe is up and walking-- they -- and chaos-- are getting to the point where we could ease off on the 24 hr surveillance--- except for the camera..
connors mother sat with her last night-- and i had to re-start the camera only twice-- so i got some sleep - problem was moxie seemed to think i should stay with her... so i slept in the chair-- which i can do pretty well-- that allowed me to observe her casual nesting--- nothing really serious yet.
having declared that ,,,, she will now have 6 pups by noon ( i don't really think so)
there is an awful lot going on in this house--- and it is getting full-- there are things like... the extension cord that could go from the generator to the big freezer in the cellar-- winds around the kitchen sink and goes down cellar thru the hole made by last winter's resident rat .. gisselle
yesterday 4 of our very competent youngsters fed all the dogs-- did a fine job-- the fact that an empty soda bottle was on the floor in the bathroom is incidental..
there is a collection of current projects on nearly ever square foot of this place
my organized battery collection has been disrupted by a bunch of paperwork AND THE DRYED ALFALFA
we are nearly to TILT-- today we must take an hour and get back to some degree of organization.
there is just soooo much going on.
trying to LOCATE A BATTERY ... I DISLODGED 3 BOXES OF STUFF SOMEONE GAVE ME TO CURE WHATEVER AILS THE DOGS-- I HADN'T USED IT YET--I HAD NOT EVEN READ THE INGREDIENTS.. WELL I HAVE NOW -- IT IS DEHYDRATED ALFALFA AND SWEET POTATOES....
I OFTEN WONDER HOW PEOPLE DISCOVER THINGS-- LIKE ASPRIN COMES FROM THE BARK OF SOME TREE.... WELL---- WHO HAD A HEADACHE SO BAD THAT THEY STARTED KNAWING ON A TREE.
OR IN THIS CASE WHO DISCOVERED ITF YOU GROUND UP ALFALFA AND SWEET POTATOES AND PUT IT IN A LITTLE YELLOW BOX... SOMEONE WOULD BUY IT.
MAYBE THE PERSON WHO WATCHED DOGS EATING MARY POO---
AT ANY RATE I DECIDED TO USE IT SO I COULD GET TO MY BATTERIES.
THE WHOLE HOUSE IS LIKE THAT --- FULL OF SOONERS AND LATERS
BECAUSE OF THE STORM-- MEGAN OPENED KENNEL 9 TO THE PUPS-- I REALLY SHOULD GO DOWN AND SEE IF WE COULD ARRAINGE IT SO THEY COULD HAVE THAT 4X8 RAISED AREA AS SLEEPING ROOM AND STILL HAVE CAMERA ACCESS TO IT.
THIS EXPLORE.ORG HAS CERTAINLY WIDENED OUR HORRIZONS-- AND DONOR FIELD-- BUT IT IS NOT WITHOUT EFFORT.. I AM TRYING NOT TO WEAR OUT OUR VOLUNTEERS AND HOPE TO GET SOME AGREEMENT WITH EXPLORE ABOUT DEALING WITH THE EXTRA EFFORT THE CAMERAS INVOLVE.. LIKE MY SLEEP.
AT LEAST I AM NOT GOING TO LOOSE SLEEP OVER THE OIL BILL FOR NOVEMBER--- THE "CAMERA PEOPLE" HAVE CHIPPED IN VERY NICELY AND WE CAN APPORACH WINTER WITH FULL TANKS.. I CAN SEE THE POSSIBILITIES -- SO WE WILL CERTAINLY HANG IN THERE.
IT IS THE DRYED ALFALFA CONCEPT WE MUST ADDRESS TODAY.
JUST THE CONTENTS OF MY DESK COULD TAKE ABOUT 2 HOURS TO RESOLVE.
SO I BEST HAVE AT IT.
