sept 5 2013
IT IS ALL CAMERA MARK'S FAULT-  SOME VERY PLESASENT WOMAN CALLED AND SAID HONEY ( MARKS RELATIVE) SUGGESTED SHE CALL - SHE WAS STARTING A CLEANING BUSINESS AND WANTED TO CLEAN  A CARPET OF OURS- FOR FREE AND IF THEY DID A GOOD JOB WOULD I PLEASE TELL ALL MY FRIENDS ABOUT THEIR CLEANING SERVICE   .. I NEVER MIND PASSING ON INFORMATION I CONSIDER  GOOD-- OR BAD---

FIRST PROBLEM -WE DON'T HAVE A CARPET IN THE HOUSE...  CARPETING THE HOUSE IS VERY HIGH ON MY -DUMB THINGS YOU HAVE DONE- LIST-- ALONG WITH HARDWOOD FLOORS-- SDP WOULD NOT HAVE GONE THIS FAR UNLESS I PUT DOWN VINYL FLOORS.-- I EVEN SENT A CARPET AWAY TO BE CLEANED ONCE-- AND THE MAN SIAD HE DIDN'T WANT ANY MORE CARPETS FROM US EVER AGAIN.

BUT THE GUEST HOUSE DOES HAVE ONE BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE ORIENTAL WHICH JANINE PICKED OUT  OF A TRASH PILE IN HAMILTON ( EXPENSIVE NEIGHBORHOOD)  ASIDE FROM SOME SIGNIFICANT HOLES IT IS A LOVELY THING... EVEN IF IT'S HUES ARE TONED DOWN BY THE YEARS OF WHATEVER DISCOLORS A CARPET.
WHY NOT HAVE THEM CLEAN IT...?? 

A VERY PLEASENT WOMAN ARRIVED  AND UNPACKED HER  "MACHINE". 
RIGHT AWAY HER USE OF THE WORD "MACHINE" MADE ME PAINFULLY AWARE THAT SHE HAD BEEN TOLD TO USE CERTAIN BUZZ WORDS, JUST AS I TRY AND GET THE WORD "DONATE" IN ANY SPEACH/ WRITING  ABOUT OUR DOGS. OR THE POLITICAL PARTIES USE OF THE WORDS "INCREASED TAXES".

I WAS ASKED TO SIT AND WATCH HER CLEAN THE CARPET.


MANY OF YOU FOLK KNOW ME WELL ENOUGH  TO KNOW WATCHING SOMEONE CLEAN CARPET IS WAY LESS INTERESTING THAN WATCHING BREAD RISE.---
 I SAT-
IT WAS A KIRBY-- AND DID A GREAT JOB BUT....

I TOLD HER THAT  BEING 75  I WAS NOT INTERESTED IN A VAC THAT WOULD LAST 30 YEARS... AND WITH ENTHUSIASM SHE TOLD ME I COULD LEAVE IT TO MY CHILDREN 
 I CAN SEE IT NOW... MY 2 KIDS ARGUING OVER A VACUUM CLEANER AT THE READING OF MY WILL. 

 FAMILY FEUDS HAVE FESTERED OVER LESS.  SO TO SPARE MY FAMILY THAT PROBLEM I DID NOT BUY ONE--  ALTHO IT WAS A VERY NICELY MANUFACTURED AND I AM SURE IT IS WORTH THE OVER $2000 THAT IT COST. IN THE PAST 30 YEARS I HAVE SPENT 5 TIMES THAT ON ORECKS/HOOVERS /DAYTONS  AND SHOP VACS

IT WAS COMICAL-- POOR WOMAN WAS JUST TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING.... WHY HONEY HAD SENT HER TO ME WAS A MISTAKE....

DID WE KNOW HOW MUCH DIRT AND GERMS WERE IN  CARPETS ?  YES THAT IS WHY I WENT TO VINYL FLOORS IN THE HOUSE...
 EACH GRAIN OF SAND HAS 7 TO 20 SHARP EDGES-- .. WHO COUNTED THOSE??  THE SCIENTISTS
WORDS LIKE--PROFESSIONALLY ENGINEERED,  SCIENTIFIC STUDIES,  PATENTED FLEW BY AS SHE PRESENTED HER MACHINE.

 THE WOMAN ASKED "HOW DO YOU NOW GET RID OF THE DEEP DIRT IN YOU SOFA'S?"
AS MARIA WALKED THRU SHE SAID --" WE PUT SOFAS  OUT WITH THE TRASH"

 SHE EXPLAINED SHE WOU LD USE PAPER WAFER/FILTERS SO WE DID NOT GET GERMS FROM ANYONE ELSE'S HOUSE- AND SHE WOULD JUST USED 8 OR 9 OF THESE IN A 3' SQUARE AREA TO SHOW HOW MUCH DIRT WAS IN THAT CARPET-- SHE WAS UP TO 24 AND COUNTING WHEN I MANAGED TO GET OUT OF THERE. EACH OF HER FILTERS HAD ABOUT 1/2 INCH OF DOG HAIR AND PURE DIRT-- I COULD HAVE GATHERED IT AND  PLANTED PETUNIAS.

I DID GO BACK AND CHECK ON PROGRESS AS SHE SHAMPOOED OUR TIRED ORIENTAL-- AND IT LOOKED VERY CHEERFUL-- THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THE KIRBY DOES A FANTASTIC JOB.

IT IS DEFINITELY MORE FOR THE PERSON WHO CHERISHES THIER EXPENSIVE POSESSIONS- NOT FOR ME PUTTING PURPLE DUCT TAPE OVER A HOLE TO KEEP IT ON THE FLOOR.
****** 

SO THEN I WENT TO SAMS WITH MEGAN TO WATGCH DAWN AMD GINGER WORK

NICE DOG THAT GINGER-- AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE WOULD DO WELL WITH DAWN WHO LOST VAYLU SEVERAL MONTHS AGO TO SOME KIND OF BRAIN TUMOR.
PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST A SERVICE DOG GET HIGHEST PRIORITY ---THEN VETERANS...
*******

I HAVE ALSO DECLARED- NOW THT SDP HAS IT'S OWN REFRIDGERATOR-  DOWN IN EARLENE'S WORLD OF THE T TENT.... I WANT MY FRIDGE BACK  SO I CAN HAE REAL FOOD  AND NOT  EAT JUST CHINESE FOOD BECAUSE WE CAN NOT TELL WHAT EXACTLY IS IN MY FRIDGE,.  SAME WITH FREEZER---   THE KITCHEN FREEZER IS NOW MINE.   

NO HIDING WHOOPIE PIES IN THE BACK OF IT .
********
 IN THE SEPARATIO OF MINE AND SDP-- WHICH I AM TRYING TO ESTABLISH,, I THINK II WILL PUT PRIVATE  SIGN ON MY BEDROOM DOOR...  I AM NOT BEING UNFRIENDLY-- BUT I REALIZED LAST SUNDAY AS TOTAL STRANGERS WANDERED AROUND,  I WOULD MAYBE MORE COMFORTABLE IF THEY STAYED OUT OF MY ONE ROOM...  THAT PROBABLY GOEES FOR UPSTQAIRS ALSO...

************
IN AN EFFORT TO GET ORGANIZED... TH E OVERNIGHT PEOPLE WILL BE ASKED TO DO THINGS  WHILE THEY PUPPY SIT-- NOW THAT THE PUPS ARE OLDER...  IT IS DURING THT IME WE SHOJLD GET STUFF SHIPPED,, MEDICAL CHARTS RECOREDED.. AND WITH COLLEEN LAST NIG, IT WAS LOCATE SOME FUNNY OR INTERESTING DAILY DOGGIES FOR THE BOOK..  AND SHE GAVE ME A LIST.
***********
HUGE LUMPS OF CONCRETE ARRIVED YESTERDAY FOR THE DRY WELL FOR THE BARN.  IT IS AMUSING-- THE  CAMERA PEOPLE ARE NOW WATCHING - AND COMMENTING ON THT  PROCESS... SEVERAL SAID THEY WERE LEARNING ALL SORTS OF NEW THINGS WITH OUR CAMERAS...

 MASTERSON SAID HE WOULD BE HERE  TIL NEXT WEEK-- SO ENJOY--

MORE PUPS  MEAN MORE FLUFFIES- MORE LAUNDRY- MORE WATER TO PROPERLY   RETURN TO THE WORLD- AND NOT JUST RUN OFF IN THE GRASS OF THE FLAT FIELD. 
****

THE GRANITE STONE WHICH THE  MASTERSON'S MEN COULD NOT LIFT-- WAS SET IN PLACE BY MARIA AND MEGAN  WHO JUST STOOD IT UP AND WALKED IT INTO PLACE...

THE WHOLD FLOOR NEEDS MASSIVE READJUSTMENT-- BUT AT LEAST THE STONES HAVE LANDED APROXIMATELY.RIGHT.
********

WE HAVE NOT PLUGGED IN THE FRIDGE-- PAUL SHOULD DO IT TODAY IN A EARLENE CERIMONIAL PLUG IN...  WE CAN FILM IT.
**** 

AND SO IT GOES ????

  1. I laughed reading your account of the door to door Kirby sales-woman.... As the owner of a vacuum cleaner store, I am quite (and painfully) aware of their sales tactics... Our answer to customers that come crying after making the mistake of spending too much money on one of those vacuums, is to put it on ebay and then come back and buy one for far less that does a better job.

  2. I love reading the Doggie Daily. It's one of the first things I do each day. I especially love it when it makes me laugh out loud. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us.
