AUG 29, 2013
NOW IT STARTS-- VITAMINS FOR THE  MOM TO BE...  I GAVE HER A BOTTLE OF  VITAMINS FROM THE  SUPPLY THAT YOU CP'S HAVE PROVIDED.... WITH THE WARNING THAT SHE KEEP THEM IN THE ICEBOX ( FRIDGE TO YOU  YOUNG FOLK)  BECAUSE THEY ARE LIVER FLAVORED-- AND  IF SHE GOT INTO THEM IT WOULD NOT BE GOOD... SO KEEP THEM AWAY-- AND THE ICEBOX IS A GOOD  PLACE. 

ASK MEGAN ABOUT DOGS GETTING INTO STUFF THAT TASTES GOOD...
EXPERIENCE COMES FROM BAD EXPERIENCES.

SOOOO... WE TOOK SCARLOTT TO GEORGE-- WHO HAS A NEW ULTRASOUND MACHINE-  HE BENT DOWN AND FELT-- AND SAID SHE HAS WALNUTS -- WHICH IS APPARENTLY WHAT THE PUPS FEEL LIKE WHEN THEY ARE ABOUT 25 DAYS ALONG...PERSONALLY I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO FEEL ANYTHING..  BUT THEN HE TURNED ON HIS NEW ULTRASOUND AND IMMEDIATELY SAID-- THERE'S ONE-- FOLLOWED BY TWO... THREE... AND FOUR-    THEY ALMOST ALL LOOKED ALIKE-- EXCEPT FOR SIZE.. AND THEREBY LIES A TALE..

JULY 26 OR WAQS IT THE 28TH??  ----YELLOW "COVERED HER"  THEN FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON HE QUIT SHOWING ANY INTEREST...  THIS WAS EXCEEDINGLY STRANGE  BECAUSE BOTH WALTER AND BENTLY SAID SHE WAS STILL VERY INTERESTING...  NOT WANTING TO MISS THIS CYCLE--- I DECIDED TO LET BENTLY HAVE A GO AT IT...  WHICH HE WILLINGLY DID---  LIKE    JULY 31-AUG4  .

I HAVE TO MENTION MY CONCERN... WHY SHOULD YOU CAMERA PEOPLE NOT WORRY WITH ME???
PROBLEM THERE IS  IF THEY BOTH SIRED PUPS,,,  THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GESTATION OF 63 DAYS AND 58 DAYS IS OFTEN SIGNIFICANT--  THE LAST FEW DAYS  DEVELOPE THINGS LIKE LUNGS...  GEORGE MAY CORRECT ME  BUT SOMEWHERE I REMEMBER THAT BEING SAID.

I DO HAVE AN OXYGEN TANK HERE-- MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE IT ON HAND WHEN SHE WHELPS???
**************

WILLIAM HUBER CAME YESTERDAY TO DO SOME MORE POSSIBLE CAMERA SHOTS...  I ARRIVED ON THE SET AS EVERYONE WAS TOSSING SINGLE SHEETS OF KLEENEX ONTO THE GRASS-- LIKE 4 BOXES -- ALL OVER THE GREEN GRASS.... ADD PUPS AND HOPEFULLY HE GOT A USEABLE SHOT...
AND THEN WE WANTED TO DO THE GOLF CART FULL OF DOGS-- WE WANTED TO DO IT AT THE IPSWICH COUNTRY CLUB---  CAMERA MARK IS A MEMBER, AND I HAVE KEPT MY HUSBAND'S MEMBERSHIP UP ( SO I CAN EAT THERE)--  AT FIRST THEY SAID OK,  WE COULD USE THIER CARTS AND A SECTIO OF THE GOLF COURSE..  THEN THEY STARTED IN... "YOU WILL HAVE TO KEEP THE DOGS ON LEASH"---  " IF ONE URINATES ON THE GREEN IT IS $20,000"---- " YOU MAY NOT PUT A DOG ON THE ROOF OF OUR CARTS"  THAT DID IT...RUINS ALL THE FUN-- SO WE DID IT HERE IN THE FLAT FIELD..   AND I THINK HE GOT SOME FANTASTIC SHOTS...  MARIAH WAS THE ROOF DOG...  LIFTED THERE BY MEGAN..

I AM NOT SURE WE COULD HAVE GOT THE SHOT AT THE ICC.   IT TOOK SOME  ENGINEERING...

IT IS LOOKING LIKE A GOOD CALENDAR-- WE HAVE ANOTHER 4 SHOTS TO DREAM UP..
**********

 WE ALMOST MISSED MAIL CALL--  AT 4:55 I WAS ZOOMING DOWN THE DRIVEWAY TO PICK UP THE MAIL-- AND THE FEDEX MAN HAD NOT EVEN DELIVERED BY 5:PM...  SO IT WAS A BRIEF MAIL CALL.

**** 
I AM SLOWLY TRYING TO RECLAIM SOME OF THIS HOUSE... NAMELY THE FREEZER IN THE TOP OF MY FRIDGE... I NEED TO BUY SOME NORMAL FOOD SO WHEN  WE GET THRU MAIL CALL  WE DON'T HAVE TO ALWAYS  ORDER CHINESE FOOD BECAUSE THE FREEZER IS STUFFED WITH DOG FOOD AND UNIDENTIFIABLE LUMPS OF FROZEN VEGETATION. ( NOT TO MENTION THE FROZEN RODENT DELIVERY COMPANY STORAGE FACILITY...)   WE HAVE 6 FREEZERS IN TEH CELLAR  TO COPE WITH THE DOG'S BEEF  SO I AM TRYING TO HAVE ALL OF SDP RELATED STUFF GO THERE. 

IN ADDITION I PLAN TO BUY A SOFA FOR MY ROOM... NOT ONE THAT WE HAVE PICKED UP ALONG THE ROAD-- AN ACTUAL   PURCHASED ONE...   THAT IS CAUSED BY THE FACT THAT YOU CP's HAVE ONCE AGAIN SOLD OUT THEREBY SUPPORTING   THIS PROJECT TO THE POINT WHERE I CAN BACK OFF JUST A BIT AND MAINTAIN THE DIRE EMERGENCY FUND/BANK ACCOUNT...... AND FIRST GET MYSELF A SOFA .
*************
AND YOUR FUN FUND OCTOBERFEST  DOLLARS WENT TO BUY SOME GRANITE WHICH WAS DELIVERED YESTERDAY-- IT IS FOR THE FLOOR OF THE T TENT EXTENSION  WHICH GIVES US SEATING FOR ANOTHER DOZEN OR SO PEOPLE ..
IF THIS OCTOBERFEST IS ABSOLUTELY DREADFUL WEATHER, WE ALWAYS HAVE PLENTY OF ROOM IN THE ARENA FOR HANGING OUT  WITH DOGS...

*******
DAN  GOT LOTS OF TRACTOR PRACTICE YESTERDAY BY TURNING OVER TH E COMPOST  PILE WITH THE BACK HOE... PERFECT PRACTICE PROJECT-- HE IS AN EXPERT NOW.
****
NO COPY AND PASTE TODAY.... 

AND SO  IT GOES.

  3. Pearl,

    If you are using a Windows based computer, press and hold the CTRL and plus (+) keys simultaneously to increase the text size on the screen. Use CTRL and minus (-) keys to decrease the text size on the screen.

    Someone else will have to help you with the key sequence to use on a MAC (Carlene, a CPer?). You may want to post the question at explore.org SDP camera web site:
