NOV 20. 2013
NEW IDEA.... IN AN EFFORT TO TAP AVAILABLITY......  SHELIA HAS BEEN RUNNING THIS TUESDAY TRIVIA BIT WITH SOME GOOD  PUZZLES FOR THE CP'S TO FIGURE OUT... LIKE PICTURES  OF PAIRS OF FEET... AND WHO OWNS THEM///  YESTERDAY SOMEONE ASKED WHY THE HAIRDRYER WAS ON MY DESK...  I NEVER FIGURED ANYONE WOULD FIGURE OUT WHY--  APPARENTLY 6 PEOPLE DID...  BUT THE OTHER ANSWERS WERE LOVELY

Most thought it was for shrink wrapping the puzzles and calendars or drying the 
glue on monkey fists or blow dog hairs off the desk or get rid of the smell in 
the drawer.
Here's a few funny ones
Dry the ink from the book signing
Chase flies away
Blow dry Bentley after his shower
Dry up pee spots
Scare off the ghost
Keep your feet warm since all your socks are missing
Dry up dog drool
Noise training
No room in the bathroom
Unfreeze your computer
  WHICH MADE ME THINK  IF SHELIA DOES T HE  TUESDAY TRIVIA, MAYBE I SHOULD DO A THURSDAY THUNK- WHERE I PUT AN ITEM ON CAMERA NOT SAYING WHAT IT REALLY IS...-- AND  ASK PEOPLE TO  TELL ME WHAT I ... COULD      USE IT FOR- THERE IS A PLETHORA OF CREATIVE TALENT JUST WAITING TO BE EXPLOITED....  AND BEING A COLLECTOR ( NOT A HOARDER)  MAYBE I WOULD GET SOME IDEAS OF WHAT TO DO WITH LALL THIS STUFF...  LIKE EATING LOBSTER WITH KELLY CLAMPS---  THERE IS A WORLD OF CONCEPTS OUT THERE IA MA SURE.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE NEW--- OR ONES WHO NEED A REFRESHER COURSE... LISTEN TO THE 19 MIN TED TALK BY KEN ROBERTSON  
GOOGLE  Ken Robinson: How schools kill creativity | Video on TED.com   
HARDLY A DAY GOES BY THAT I DON'T THINK OF SOME OF HIS COMMENTS  -
- LIKE HIS YOUNG  KIDS IN THE NATIVITY PLAY  --- "I BRING  YOU GOLD"  "I BRING YOU MYRRH""  " FRANKIE SENT ME"

I  D ON'T THINK I SENT THIS

Good Morning Carlene,

As Thanksgiving approaches, it occurs to me that a big thank you is due to you 
and all at Service Dog Project. A thank you not just for the life changing gift 
of Willow but for what everyone did for Willow. I would ask that you share this 
with all involved. 

I have heard the stories of how sick Willow was with HOD and having educating 
myself about HOD I can only imagine how horrendous it was. I have heard how she 
was cared for 24/7, carried outside to relieve herself and even given Reiki by 
Sandy. I know this went on for quite some time and how at one point it had 
become so severe there were questions as to her survival, her soundness and 
certainly her viability as a service dog.

In true SDP spirit no one gave up on her. Everyone worked tirelessly to aid her 
recovery and the result was.....

Well, we all know she recovered. She's perfectly sound and could clear a six 
foot fence like a deer if she chose to and she's an exemplary service dog. Not 
just good, outstanding. This is a dog who navigated me through the Topsfield 
Fair without a hitch! She also has an incredible temperament and is simply the 
sweetest girl.

So, I would very much like to thank everyone who spent so much time and effort 
caring for Willow. It speaks volumes as to who you are as individuals and to who 
SDP is as an organization. It has been said that " words cannot express" and in 
this case that is so very true. I will never truly be able to express the 
gratitude I feel but, please know it is very deeply felt.

With my Most Sincere Thank You,

Lynne
