JUNE 15, 2013  added    eta 10am TODAY-- I APPARENTLY AVE A PROBLEM WITH DATES..
NO WORD FROM PAUL AND EARLENE AS YET... I DON'T KNOW IF HE PACED HIS CELL CHARGER-- AND EARLENE'S LUGGAGE DID NOT MAKE THE TRIP-- SO THEY COULD BE RESERVING CELL USE FOR EMERGENCIES..

FIGURING EARLENE IS NOCTERNAL, AND THE BACK OF SHELIA'S CAR IS BIG ENOUGH FOR NAPPING, THEY MAY DRIVE THRU-- IN WHICH CASE- MAYBE THIS AFTERNOON...

WRONG.... THEY ARE IN CONN ( at 6:30 am)AND SHOULD BE HERE 10

************

QUESTION OF THE DAY

WHAT IS THE GESTATION PERIOD OF AN ANT???

ANTS.... WE RECIEVED A BOX FROM TEXAS A COUPLE DAYS AGO . OPENED IT IN THE T TENT-    IT WAS ALIVE WITH ANTS-- NOT JUST A FEW--THOUSANDS OF TINY.. AND DECIDED THEY CAME FROM TEXAS...

EXCEPT

YESTERDAY WE HAD A PACKAGE FROM NEW JERSEY-- LOADED WITH ANTS-- NOT JUST ANTS BUT BABY ANTS

THAT BOX HAD BEEN SITTING BESIDE MY DESK-- AND THERE WERE A VERY FEW-- STILL ON THE FLOOR

WE UNLOADED THE CONTENTS AND BUD SET FIRE TO THE BOX IN THE YARD...

WE THEN SET A SMALL FIRE IN OUR MAILBOX which also contained a few ants
 
THAT SECOND BOX COULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN our  MAILBOX LONG ENOUGH FOR THE ANTS TO HAVE A SIZABE COLLECTION OF BABY ANTS-- SO THEY ARE COMEING FRO M SOME MAIL FACILITY SOMEHERE.

THERESA CARRIED THAT BOX IN.. IN HER ARMS--

**************************

WHICH REMINDEDME OF THE COMMERCIAL I DID WITH A SMALL YORKIE.. IT CALLED FOR A FANCY LADY IN A MINK COAT TO HOLD THE YORKIE IN HER ARMS.. IT TOOK AN HOUR OR SO TO DO...

WHEN THE COMMERCIAL WAS OVER I TOOK THE YORKIE AND NOTICED IT WAS COVERED WITH FLEAS--

I AM SURE I WOULD HAVE NOTICED THEM DURING THE PREP-- BUT I WAS NEVER TOO SURE IF THE MINK COAT WAS ACTUALLY THE SOURCE..

I LEFT AND GAVE THE YORKIE A FLEA BATH BEFORE RETURNING IT TO IT'S OWNER...

I AM SURE THE COAT WENT BACK TO SOME STORE...

*************

WITH BB'S ARRIVAL NOW WITHIN REACH, I BEST BE SURE WE ARE PROPERLY PREPARED...

GOT TO CLEAN OUT THE BACK OF THE T TENT WHERE MARY USED TO STAND SO he COULD BE PART OF THE CROWD..

 GOT TO REMEMBER DONKEY AND DOGS CAN BE A PROBLEM AND WE CAN NOT ASSUME HE WILL TOLORATE DOGS AROUND HIS FEET.

MARY USED TO SPEND ALOT OF TIME WITH HER HEAD nEAR GROUND LEVEL BREATHING THRU THE FENCE AT THE SMALL PUPS.. THEY WERRE HAVING SOME CONVERSATION I AM SURE

DONKEYS ARE USED IN HERDS OF SHEEP TO KILL WOLVES

SO WE HAVE TO TAKE THIS INSTINCT SERIOUSLY...

DONKEYS ARE ALSO NOTED FOR NOT USING ANY MORE ENERGY THAN ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY SO THESE DOGS ARE IN FOR AN E-COLLAR SO THEY DON'T THINK OF TRYING TO CHASE BB.
