OPENING MAIL ON CAMERA AT 5:00 SEEMS TO BE A POPULAR CONCEPT.. MOST OF TEH TIME IN THE T TENT WITH THE PUPPY HILL CAMERA ( WWHOEVER IS DOING THAT IS DOING A FANTASTIC JOB OF ZOOMING...) IN THE DREARY COLD RAIN WE DID CHICKEN OUT TO THE HOUSE CAMERA-- YOU WILL HAVE TO FIGURE THAT OUT ON YOUR OWN THO WE CAN TRY AND USE WHITE BOARDS...
I HAD A NASTY TYPED LETTER FROM SOME IRATE CAMERA PERSON-- LET ME PREFACE BY SAYING 99.9 % OF THE CAMERA PEOPLE ARE GREAT, FUNNY AND JUST A DELIGHT.
HOWEVER..... THIS LETTER WENT ON TO SAY I SHOULD BE MORE CAREFUL WERE I SCRATCH ( I HAVE A PERMANENT ITCH CONDITION)..... AND THE COUNTERS ARE SO FULL THE PLACE LOOKS LIKE A DUMP--
COULD BE THIS PERSON HAS A POINT.... THEY CERTAINLY HAD AN OPINION.
SO I DECIDED I OUGHT TO TAKE ONE AREA -- ON TOP OF THE FILE CABINET TO MY RIGHT-- USUALLY ON CAMERA-- AND DESCRIBE WHAT ALL THIS STUFF IS- AND WHY I CAN NOT "PUT IT AWAY"
1. "AWAY " IS ALREADY PACKED WITH OTHER STUFF.
2.. THERE IS A SANTA'S MUG FILLED WITH EYEGLASSES LEFT BEHIND- WHICH ALSO BECOMES A SOURCE OF EMERGENCY GLASSES FOR "MY GLASSSES ARE IN THE CAR" PEOPLE
3. THE TALL WHITE BUCKET HAS A STETHOSCOPE--- SET OF REINDEER ANTLERS.--- A COVER FOR A WOOD GOLF CLUB-- AND A PACK OF ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION TUBES.
4. THE ICE GREAM CONTAINER HAS MY LIVE FLEA STUDY-- COMPARING FLEA POWDER, DAWN LIQUID AND THAT DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED EARTH ( OR WHATEVER IT'S NAME IS)- SEVERAL PLASTIC BAGS AND SOME FLEA COMBS.
5. THE SS BUCKET HAS THE PAY CHECKS AND HOURLY WAGE BOOK
6. 2 CONTAINERS OF POSTAGE STAMPS
7. AND CHRISTMASS TREE ORNAMENT OF A GOLFER.
WHAT COULD YOU POSSIBLEY TAKE OFF THAT LEDGE?-- AND WHERE WOULD YOU PUT IT IF YOU DID..? WE ALL KNOW WHAT IS THERE.. EVEN ME.-- BECAUSE I CAN SEE IT
BEING ABLE TO SEE IT... IS THE BASIC PROBLEM AROUND HERE-- PUT SOMETHING IN A DRAWER OR CLOSET- I WOULD NOT REMEMBGER IT WAS THERE AND HAVE TO GO BUY MORE.
I AM SUPPOSED TO BE WRITING THE REST OF JANINE'S BOOK-- THE PART WHERE ANIMAL EPISODES EVOLVED INTO SDP.
I WANTED TO READ WHAT SHE HAS WRITTEN- AND THE INK GAVE OUT--
ALL GAUL IS DIVIDED IN 3 PARTS- AND SO WILL THIS BOOK
SHE HAD AN EASY TIME OF IT AE WAS A VERY STRANGE WAY TO MAKE A LIVING- AND NOW THAT IT IS OVER, IT IS FUNNY-- AT THE TIME, CAUSING A WELL KNOWN HOLLYWOOD ACTOR TO RUN THRU THE STREETS OF BOSTON IN HIS UNDERWEAR WAS A TERRIFYING EXPERIENCE.
SDP DOES NOT HAVE THAT VARIETY OF OUTRAGEOUS EPISPDES FROM WHICH TO DRAW THE 4 CHAPTERS I AM EXPECTED TO PRODUCE.... BY YESTERDAY.
ESPECIALY WHEN I HAVE MONKEY FISTS TO MAKE TO PAY THE FEED BILL.
WHICH IS ALOT EASIER.
**************THE DOGGIE BAG
IS OPEN AND NEARLY FUNCTIONING.. WHY IT CHARGES $ .02 SALES TAX IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS WE NEED TO FIX..
IN THE MEANTIME - THANKS FOR THE EXTRA .02 DONATION.
WE HAVE BUSY DAY AHEAD-- MARIA MUST TAKE THE NJ MAN OUT WITH HIS DOG.. AND BEING A RAINY DAY THERE IS ALOT TO DO HERE.. I HOPE VOLUNTEERS SHOW.
HERE IS A KAREN REPORT TO BALE ME OUT.
After reading this mornings DD, I found myself weeping and realizing how totally heartbroken and lost I would be if anything happened to my precious DiDi (thank goodness I had no class and was alone in my room). She is the light of my life, my best friend, confidant, and best of all, my freedom. I am so very saddened for Dawn and can totally understand her pain.
Education: I have learned that by getting DiDi a red vest, people are much more hesitant to approach her. Thank goodness they can see red even though cannot read the big "DO NOT PET/ SERVICE DOG patches on her green vest. She is amazing at picking up the smallest of my movements through doors, at home, at stores. And I am so grateful for her ability to make me smile when I am feeling a bit self deprecating, overwhelmed, .... She comes over and nuzzles me, gets in my face and tells me she understands and loves me. I love her tail wagging, her happy smile when we play, her companionship, and her tender care. She comes to me at home and offers to walk me around when she notices I am off balance more than usual or my walking is particularly bad. No one could ak for a better companion or care taker.
Thank you for your generosity of the cabin's use during our short time there. Again, I am so very grateful for your talents, abilities, and knowledge in raising these amazing dogs. You are doing Gods work in relieving the suffering and offering freedom to many in need. Please let Megan know how sorry I am that we missed her. We will try again with more notice in order to catch her around next time.
Lastly, I think offering the T shirts for sale would be a great idea. It would be a great source of extra cash and I would love to buy each of my children one, as a reminder of where my freedom comes from. Although, perhaps it would only serve to add to the long overwhelming list of applicants you are already struggling with. Just a thought. And for the person who wants to sew, sewing "SERVICE DOG" in heavy lettering on web dog collars would be useful to anyone with a service dog (but that one you would only notify service dog owners about to avoid further fraud by others.
Hi to everyone involved in raising service dogs.
Have a great day,
