daily doggie  sept 2, 2013
i never saw getting  into a bathrobe as any particular threat to my health and well being... but last night- there were a bunch of people in the  living room  and some Chinese food in the fridge.  since my jammies were not the most stylish i decided to put on the bathrobe that had been hanging by the door for at least a year.

  when i was younger- by at least 6 months- i could cross my arms- put them int he sleeve of my jacket and with a quick twist it would land properly .

maybe i was younger then--- because the bathrobe did not land as exspected ... instead the armpits landed, but the skirt did not clear my head--- this is when i realized this bathrobe would fit a much smaller person--   and i now had the problem of both arms held straight  up, and my head covered - because of my age ( and wierd shoulder joints) i could not get untangled.

i wear one of those "i have fallen and i can't get up"   buttons- but there is no way i was going to have the fire department arrive to rescue me from this blindfolding  bathrobe.-  and the people in the living room would never let me live it down...

i do not know who  left thier bathrobe in my bedroom,  but i had to destroy it with scissors ( and difficulty) to save myself.

you just never know when an event will remind you , you are not 74 any more.
***********

and more important than that ... wicked is better--   she had a dreadful case of watgery stool- and wold not eat or drink .. we have very strange luck around here-- because my daughter gwen had a friend from kenyon visiting-- who just happened to be a veternarian...  ( and is also a camera person from way back)  so she looked her over-- and decided wicked would feel a bit better if we gave her some fluids-- which we have--  and 1/5 a 500 mg tablet of flagyl.... and some baby food might be more appropriate than dog food--- or the scrambled eggs we had offered.

luckily shelia could go get some baby food ---- with difficulty we managed to mix the crushed flagly  in a spoonful of Gerbers best which then got smeared all over shelia's arm before we could collect it and land it further down wicked's throat.

fortunately it stayed there--- and progress was made..

george called to check- i had emailed him-- and he wants a stool sample at 8am
wiched  went from  producing  a light tan liquid at 9pm   to a brown liquid at about 3am... indicating stuff was making it thru.
and grace-- who stayed to help devlin  as wicked's  special nurse--- collected samples-- and fed the entire 4 jars of gerbers...

this morning she is starving  and is attackjing the fence between herself and the other 7 ..

wicked was the pup that  may have eaten a 3/4 inch of corn cob last wednesday -- hopefully an incidental fact.

PROGRESS IS BEING MADE AROUND HERE WITH ALL THE NEW SHELVING AND  ENCLOSED FRONT PORCH...

the sh#tting stew was fine  -- we had as close a second as we have had yet...230  patti bavinka   from  sun prarie WI   was the winner by a wisker...  the crowd decided because it was so close-- that the second place person    36  diane drake  from marrion ma  should also be give a shatupon certificate.. 
****

the newly designed t-tent was a huge success   -- we did have a good crowd-- and the open center of the t tent  worked well-- plus we coudl put the sh#TTING TABLE THERE...  HOPEFULLY WITHIN RANGE OF TEH CAMERA...

WE HAD 2 GROUPS OF VETERANS WHO  WANDERED AROUND ENJOYING THE  SCENARIO ..

*-****
TODAY-- LABOR DAY--   IS USUALLY LIKE ANOTHER SUNDAY-- AS ALOT OF PEOPLE DRIFT HERE AS A DESTINATION--

LAUREN HAD DONE VERY NICELY WITH BORRIS-- AND IT HAS BEEN DECIDED THAT SHE SHOULD TAKE HIM HOME WITH HER.. SHE HAS SPENT 2 DAYS ALL ON HER OWN-- MINUS MEGAN OR MARIA--  AND HAD ONLY MINOR NROMAL PROBLEMS.

SHE STILL HAS THE LONG CLASS TIME TO DEAL WITH--- AND BORRIS HAS BEEN KNOWN TO SING  WHEN BORED... THIS COULD BE A PROBLEM.

GWEN'S KENYON FRIEND CAME UP WITH A FUNNY KONG SORT OF THING FOR LICKING  COULDN'T REMEMBER THENAME  -- WHICH  MIGHT HELP  LAUREN IN CLASSES. ---GOT TO PASS THE NAME ALONG WHEN  I GET IT .. 

OTHER THAN  THAT....

  1. In previous DD, you mentioned dogs with swollen feet. I recently learned a large dog with swollen feet should have their heart check by a vet. It is a sign that fluid is pooling due to poor circulation. The same is true of humans. Perhaps George can comment on the subject.
