February 7, 2013

APPARENTLY  THE ONCOMING STORM COULD BE SERIOUS...-- THE CONCEPT OF ME KEEPING THE DRIVEWAY OPEN AT 2AM WITH MY SPOONSIZE PLOW--GIVES ME CONCERN..
 
THE USUAL PLAN IS TO PLOW EVERY 4 INCHES  WHICH MEANS I CAN JUST RUN AT IT-- IT ALL SOUNDS PERFECT UNTIL THE WIND BLOWS IT ALL BACK AGAIN..
I DO HAVE A FRONT END BUCKET-- WHICH EVENTUALLY WILL CLEAR ABOUT ANYTHING---
 
IT IS THAT EVENTUALLY PART THAT GETS ME..
 
WITH SNOW COMES COLD..  COLD IS NOT MY FAVORITE-- I DO HAVE A SNOWSUIT, PILOT'S FUNNY HAT WITH EARS.... AND LEATHER  FUZZY GLOVES--BUT I NEED ADDITIONAL PEOPLE HERE TO WATCH ME SLIDE AROUND THE DRIVEWAY AND BE SURE  I AM STILL RIGHT SIDE UP.
 
WHAT  WE  NEED IS AN OVERNIGHT PARTY-- WATCH THE PUPPIES--- KEEP ALL THE FIRES GOING-- AND KEEP THEIR EYE ON  THE TRACTOR.
 
PROBABLY THERE WILL BE NO PIZZA DELIVERY... SO WE BETTER STOCK UP.
 
AND MAKE SURE THE GENERATORS ARE RUNNING.-- THE DOG FOOB BINS ARE FULL-- AND JUST FOR GOOD LUCK--- ALL THE STOCK TANKS ARE FILLED WITH WATER..
 
ONE FOOT OF SNOW CONCERNS BUT  DOES  NOT PANIC ME--- BUT YESTERDAY THERE WAS A WEATHER REPORT   "OVER 2 FEET IN EASTERN MASS"  THAT CAN BE MORE CHALANGE...  ESPECIALLY IF IT BLOWS..
 
ONE GOOD THING--- THERE WILL BE NO POO TIO PICK...-  BEING WARM---IT DISAPPEARS IN ONE FOOT OF SNOW...................TIL SPRING..................
*******************
WE ARE RUNNING AN ICU  IN TH EHOUSE.......VANILLA-S FOOT   SHE BEGAN TO WORK AT THE BANDAGE SO I RE DID IT  AND HAVE O KEEP HER WITHIN SIGHT SO SHE DOES NOT EAT TH E  BANDAGE-- THE COST OF RETRIEVING A BANCDAGE FROM A GUT IS VERY LARGE...
 
AND WE HAVE FIRST SPAY  WILLOW-- DOING FINE-- THEN YESTERDAYS SPAYS  ROXANNE AND LOLA BOTH SLIGHTLY ON TH E BIAS STILL...
ADD THAT TO NOEL AND PUPS..  THE HOUSE IS  "WELL USED"
****************
 
FASCINATING FACT FOR TODAY...
 
100 YEARS AGO-- BETTY-- WHO WAS THE FIRST VOLUNTEER TO SLEEP ON THE FLOOR WHILE PUPS WERE BORN...-- BACK WHEN SWIFTERS WERE NEW-- BETTY BOUGHT ONE FOR ME-- WHICH WAS VERY NICE  EXCEPT A SHOVEL IS MORE TO TH EPOINT AROUND HERE..A SWIFTER FOR THE DUST COLLECTION  WAS WAY BEYOND WHAT WAS CALLED FOR... BUT I PUT IT IN TH E OVERFLOW ROOM
 
UNTIL NOW-- WHEN I HAD A VINYL FLOOR PUT IN WHAT IS NOW MY ROOM--  WHEN I GOT OUT OF BED AND WALKED AROUND BAREFOOT... THERE WERE PEBBLES--- SO I FOUND THAT OLD SWIFTER AND SWIFTED--- AND I COULD WALK AROUND BAREFOOT.-- I COULD FEEL THE DIFFERENCE A SWIFTER MADE..
 
.I REALIZE-- IN A FARM SITUATION THERE ARE THINGS YOU CAN NOT SEE THAT SHOULD PREVENT YOU FROM WALKING BAREFOOT... LIKE HOOKWORMS AND TETANAS--
 
I DON'T THINK THEY SWIFT....
IMMAGINE ... ME... WITH A SWIFTABLE ROOM !!!
***************
 
ENOUGH NONSENSE-- I HAVE TO THINK HOW TO SURVIVE THE  STORM... LOOSING ELECTRICITY MEANS LOOSING HEAT...-- MAYBE IF   PEOPLE COULD TAKE A DOG OVERNIGHT IT MIGHT BE GOOD
 
LIKE POLLY AND BOB--  TAKE  BAILEY AND LUNA???
