NOV 5TH 2013

SO MUCH STUFF- SO LITTLE WALL SPACE...-- ONLY THE OLD TIMERS AROND HERE WILL APPRECIATE THIS NEXT PROBLEM..

WE ARE STARTING SPOON FEEDING OF BABY FOOD-- ( AS IN THE PAUL VIDEO ON "HOW TO SMEAR BABY FOOD ON YOURSELF AND PUP)

DOESN'T SOUND LIKE A HUGE PROBLEM-- EXCEPT 11 PUPS... 11 JARS  OF BABY FOOD EQUALS 11 EMPTY JARS------ LOVELY JARS--  MATCHING JARS.... WITH LIDS...

MY FATHER ALWAYS TOLD ME- DON'T THROW AWAY ANY COLLECTION OF LIKE ITEMS-- EVENTUALLY YOU WILL FIND A USE FOR IT-
BORN IN 1900- HE  WAS MOSTLY REFERRING TO HARDWARE- BECAUSE THERE WAS NO LOCAL HOME DEPOT ROUND EVERY CORNER.

LITTLE DID HE KNOW  HIS INSTRUCTIONS  WOULD SUBCONSCIOUSLY LEAD ME TO DRIVING 8 MATCHING DONKEYS-- AND CURRENTLY A MATCHED PAIR OF WHITE PUPS..

AND IN THE HARDWARE DEPT-- I HAVE A PRETTY GOOD COLLECTION OF HINGES--- SOMEWHERE--- AND A PRETTY AMAZING COLLECTION OF GLASS JARS...
THE GLASS JARS STARTED-- OR BECAME A PROBLEM- WHEN I HAD TROUBLE THROWING AWAY THOSE STORE BOUGHT  PRODUCTS WHICH WERE  SOLD IN THE MASON JARS  FOR WHICH YOU COULD BUY LIDS  AND USE IN CANNING--  I WOULD SEEK OUT PRODUCTS SOLD IN THOSE RE-USEABLE JARS.... I NO LONGER CAN--I JUST COLLECT CANNING JARS IN CASE I START AGAIN..

BUT THAT LED TO BEING FIXATED WITH  LOVELY LITTLE SQUARE JARS IN WHICH CRANBERRY SAUCE BY DICKSON FOODS WAS SOLD-- MORE JARS COULD LINE UP ON A SHELF BETTER IF THEY WERE SQUARE.. NUTS/BOLTS/GROMMET STUFF AND DRILL BITS... WE ATE ALOT OF CRANBERRY SAUCE-- AND STILL DO.

WHICH LED TO THE INDIVIDUAL JAMS SOLD BY THEM-- HOTELS HAVE THEM-- LOVELY LITTLE STURDY JARS-- NICE LIDS... NO KNOWN USE YET.. EXCEPT FOR THE TABLESPOON OF OLIVE OIL INTO WHICH WE DIP A Q-TIP TO SWIPE THE BUMS OF NEWBORN PUPS- SO THEY DON'T GET PASTY BUMS....-- BUT THAT DOES NOT KEEP UP WWITH THE NUMBER OF JARS PRODUCED BY MEGAN'S LOVE  FOR PB&J SANDWICHES --  THE COLLECTIO IS STORED ON THE OVERFLOW PORCH ( AS OPPOSED TO THE OVERFLOW ROOM)

AND THEN I NOTICED GOERGE-- THROWING AWAY ALL THOSE GLASS VIALS  LEFT OVER FROM VACCINATING  HIS PATIENTS..  THEY HAD A LOVELY RUBBER STOPPER ... AND WERE REALLY VER NICE TINY JARS...  SO I COLLECTED THEM--- WASHING/PEALING OFF METAL LIDS   NEEDED  SIGNIFICANT EFFORT  BUT  MY FATHER......

AND SURE ENOUGH-- HE WS RIGHT-- CAUSING THE BIRTH OF THE  INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN.... "PUPPY BREATH MANUFACTURING COMPANY"-- WITH SALES IN THE HUNDREDS....AT $8.00 EACH  ( INCLUDING POSTAGE)  THE TRANQUILIZING EFFECT OF PUPPY BREATH IS HISTORIC...

MANY IS THE COMPUTER WHICH HAS A PUPPY BREATH VIAL RIGHT NEXT TO THE KEYBOARD .. A SLIGHT -QUICK SNIFF WILL DE-FRAZZLE THE NERVES OF PEOPLE DETERMINED TO  UNDERSTAND THE NANO TECH WORLD.

I KNOW OF ONE FAMILY THANKSGIVING DINNER  WHERE NO ONE ARGUED BECAUSE A VIAL OF PUPPY BREATH WAS  LIGHTLY SCATTERED OVER EVERY DINNER PLATE FIR A FIRST EVER HAPPY  FAMILY DINNER PARTY.

THERE IS ONE PERSON WHO BOUGHT 2 -- AND KEEPS ONE  IN  THE DRAWER OF THINGS WHICH GET CLEANED OUT ONCE A YEAR.  THEY ARE GUARENTEED TO CAUSE A SMILE FOR YEARS..

WE HAVE HAD ONLY ONE COMPLAINT ABOUT THE VIAL BEING EMPTY-

AND SHOULD YOU USE YOURS UP, REFILLS ARE $5.00.
***************
FROM THERE TO WORMS...

WE WORMED THE PUPS YESTERDAY  AND THE RESULTS LAST NIGHT WERE SPECTACULAR---  WHICH REMINDS ME WE SHOLD WORM MOM TOO..
THIS IS FOR THE ROUND WORMS THTA ALL PUPS GET-- AS DO THIER MOMS..-- I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE  ROUND WORM-- SOME DAY...MAYBE I AM  UNKNOWINGLY COLLECTING THESE LITTEL JARS TO DO SOME EXPERIMENTAL WORK  TO BE SUBSIDIZED BY THE GOV'T.

THERE MUST BE SOME REASON....
***************
AND ALL OF THIS HAS TO DO WITH  CAMERA MARK- WHO SOMEHOW HAS ACCESS TO SOME OFFICE CLEANING OUT PARTY-- AND COULD GET STUFF FOR US...  BIG STUFF... GOOD STUFF , ICEBOXES, TABLES, CHAIRS,  FILING CABINETS( INTO WHICH I COULD PUT LITTLE JARS)  

SO I HAVE CALLED A OVERFLOW COMMITTEE MEETING FOR THIS MORNING...

THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT SHORTAGE OF WALL SPACE.. UNLESS......

WELL... THE TIP[I WOULD LOOSE IT'S CHARM IF WE PUT A BIG METAL FILE CABINET IN THE MIDDLE...
********

BUT THAT IS ONE OF TODAY'S BIG JOBS.  GIVE MARK A LIST OF WHAT WE COULD USE.

**********
AND CHECK ON SCARLOTT-- SHE HAD A MASSIVE  ABCESS WHICH GEORGE DRAINED AND PUT IN  A FUNNY PIECE OF HOSE TO KEEP IT OPEN..

GETTING ALL THAT DONE INVOLVED ME SLEEPING ONTHE FLOOR IN A CORNER OF HIS SURGICAL AREA  AND THEN I WAS JOINED BY ANN SO THE 2 OF US SAT ON THE FLOOR WHILE WE WAITED FOR GEORGE TO BE AVAILABLE TO WORK ON SCARLOTT-- WE WORKED ON THE ANNENBERG LETTER...  WHILE OVER OUR HEADS VET TECHS  SPUN BLOOD, READ SLIDES AND GENERALLY CARRIED ON...

GEORGE DOES RUN A VERY GOOD VET OFFICE..  EVEN WITH ME SOUND ASLEEP ON THE FLOOR IN THE CORNER.

  1. Carlene, you constantly amaze me. You are twenty years older than I am and do twice the work. Could you possibly use some of those jars to bottle and sell a bit of your energy? :) I love what you are doing. Keep on keeping on.

  2. If you aren't too attached to at least some of your jars, you might want to contact some daycares or kindergartens to see if they can use them for finger paint or whatever. When I was younger, I collected baby food jars from friends to use when I was doing decoupage. I also use them for paperclips or small binder clips. I agree with Sandee above, you constantly amaze me.
