AUG 3 , 2013
I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYONE OR ANY THING SAYS AVOID THE GEORGE WASHINGTON BRIDGE AT ALL COSTS-- BECAUSE AS BAD AS IT IS, ALL THAT SPAGETTI GOING THRU WESTCHESTER AND CONN IS WORSE.


I HAVE NOT LOOKED AT MAPS LATELY BUT TAPPANZEE BRIDGE AND RT 84 AT NEWBURGH ARE 1% OF THE NEW YORK BRIDGE.


2 CAMERa people CAME UP FROM PENNA-- AND SOMEONE OR SOME GPS TOLD THEM TO GO 95 THRU NEW YORK....,. IT CERTAINLY IS THE MOST DIRECT... EXCEPT FOR A HUGE ROCK IN THE WAY THAT IS CALLED MANHATTAN..
THEY WERE 4 HOURS OVER THEIR ETA.
P.S.. THAT BRIDGE AT RT 84 -- THERE IS A VERY NICE DINER ON THE NEWBURGH SIDE ...
TO COMPLETE THE TRAFFIC NIGHTMARES


MAIRA WAS 3 HOURS OVER HER ETA BECAUSE OF A TRACTER TRAILER OVERTURNED ON 495--- AND IT DID NOT SPILL ANYTHING WORTH PICKING UP.. I MEAN IF IT HAD BEEN FULL OF DOG FOOD SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN RIGHT OUT THERE FILLING HER VAN...


AND JANINE TRIED TO GET INTO NYC FOR THE WEEKEND OF ROLLERBLADING ( BUNCH OF NUTS-- 100's OF THEM ROLLERBLADE ONE CITY A M ONTH-- ) AND THE TRAFFIC WAS SO BAD AROUND BOSTON SHE COULDN'T GET THERE FROM HERE SO TURNED AROUND AND CAME BACK...


LESSON OF THE DAY?- DON'T GO ANYWHERE.


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

NOW TO TRY AND FIGURE THIS FOOL EMAIL THING OUT AGAIN---

MARIA MADE THE ASSUMPTION THT HAVING DONE IT ONCE, I COULD EASILY DO IT AGAIN..


SHE HAS ALOT TO LEARN ABOUT SHORT TERM MEMORY LOSS


ONLY AFTER 100 TIMES WILL I BE ABLE TO SEND THE EMAIL WITHOUT HAVING TO QUESTION THE LOGIC OF EVERY MNOVE


LETS SEE--- THAT MAKES IT ABOUT THANKSGIVING...

UNTIL THEN THE DD WILL BE A PAINFUL PROCESS..


ALTHO MY SOUND IS NOW WORKING AGAIN SO I WILL LISTEN TO THEIR DIRECTIONS-- WITH PEN IN HAND.

THAT SHOULD BE SLIGHTLY BETTER TNAN TRYING TO LIP READ WITH NO AUDIO...

*****

WHICH BRINGS TO MIND.... AGE CAN HAVE AN ADVANTAGE....


.WHEN I WS FIRST STARTING OUT WITH THIS SERVICE DOG BIT, I KNEW I HAD PUBLIC ACCESS EITHER USING OR TRAINING... THAT WAS THE LIMIT OF MY KNOWLEDGE.


IN A LOCAL MALL, ONE OF THOSE SECURITY TYPES WITH A GUN, TOLD ME I HAD TO LEAVE- DOGS WERE NOT ALLOWED IN THE MALL-- SO I PLAYED THE OLD LADY WHO LEFT HER HEARING AID HOME AND JUST COULD NOT UNDERSTAND ANYTHING-- SO I SAT DOWN-- SMILING.. I HAD 2 HOURS OF FUN WITH SECURITY AND VARIOUS MALL MANAGERS.. THERE I SAT - SMILING WHILE THEY TRIED TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WOULD SCARE ME INTO MOVING...

.. NOTHING... I WAS READY TO PLEASENTLY DISRUPT ANOTHER POLICE STATION IF THEY HAULED ME OFF... THEY EVENTUALYY GAVE UP...


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

IN TRYNG TO LOCATE SOME OLD PHOTO'S FOR THIS BOOK, I CAME UP WITH THE PLAYBILL FOR THE NORTH SHOR MUSIC THEATER WHEN TIFFANY WAS IN CAMELOT...


TIFFANY WAS A SUPER DOG-- FIRST DANE I EVER ACTUALLY PURCHASED... SHE HAD A PART WHERE SHE WALKED ON STAGE WITH ED HERLIHEY. BIG ROLE....


WHEN THEY ASKED TO RENT HER--- I DEVISED A METHOD OF SIGN UP-- ALL MY FRIENDS SIGNED UP FOR 2 TICKETS TO CAMELOT-- THE HITCH WAS YOU HAD TO GO 1/2 HR EARLY AND HIDE IN THE GREEN ROOM SO THE AUDIENCE WOULD NOT SEE THE DOG AHEAD OF TIME... .. WE HAD A SP[ECIAL PARKING PLACE AND ALOT OF FUN MEETING THE PERFORMERS INTHE GREEN ROOM..

THE AUDIENCE GASPED EVERY PERFORMANCE WHEN SHE WALKED ON STAGE.. SHE WAS A PRO !! 2 WEEKS IN 1991.


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

I WILL NOW ATTEMPT TO SEND THIS THING WITH THE CONSTANT CONNECTION PRGRAM WHICH APPARENTLY GETS AROUND THE AOL DECIDING I AM SPAM.


I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE PROGRAM IS FOR THE DAY.. JUST NORMAL CHORES I GUESS..


AND SO IT GOES???



I AM NOT YELLING-
- I CAN NOT SEE the small print
