dec 12,2013
some of  the best things in life are still free--- like the tiny little screw that attaches my ear to my eyeglasses...thus improving the problem i  was having with tripple vision.. 
 this ghost of 37 boxford rd did not see fit to return the screw for a second time...-- so costco fixed it..

a camera person was quick to point out that after tuesdays mail call, it was evident there were quite a few loose screws at sdp.

*****
and the whale of a party the cp's are providing in jan at caletri's.... i had no idea what could be in  that envelope i was not to open til tuesday mail call.. what a  great idea. and a terriffic surprize--  jan 11th --- so far everyone is coming....  how can we film it  ?live?? so everyone can be there in spirit???   maybe we need a spirit basket again? 

on the topic of mail call-- and  aquiring sound..... most are really looking forward to it... several have  worried that it might  upset the  spontinunity ( i wish this machine would stop trying to correct that word-- i like it.) ---  to worry about the spontinunity...  implies things might be  written and rehearsed.... let me assure you   you could not make this stuff up-- and rehearsal is just not in our language.

.  so it will be "que sera, sera" 

see -- i can even mispell in spanish

i took 4 years of spanish  and  there is one story  worth remembering..

"a man goes into a clothing store and wants to buy some socks-- he speaks spanish-- the clerk does not.
  after about 10 minutes of wild hand movements- the clerk finally pulls out a pair of socks..
 and the man says "esso si que es"
and the clerk says  " why didn't you tell me you could spell it"

4 years of public education on  taxpayers money  and that is it..
at least it is a fair decent  joke... no?
********
that along with 4 years of college which  only taught me what a deadline was.... i am a little down on the typical education process in this country....(  TED  ken robertson)
*********
back to the important things..

like 2 white pups going out to pee....-- i di d manage to get them up and out for a peeing party-- they were soo pleased with themselves...   opal was the baby sitter.

i have tossed the gauntlet to the surrounding population...    being blessed with 3 nearly white pups, i think we-- as a group-- ought to be able to produce a troika to pull that little wagon-- boy ... what that would do for the deaf awareness project... there is a famous painting  "the pharoh's horses"-- which is 3 white horses-- we could do that with dogs...-- perfectly good goal...

i used to go to beverly school for the deaf and talk( with interperter) about how pandymonium had a great job in the movies because she was so well "schooled" in spite of her deafness.
 
first challange with the troika would be-- if they are deaf-- and out in front of you .... how do you steer?  rigging lines will be a challlange.

when i drove the 8 donkeys, i had 8 lines--  4 and 4---- which was fine til my nose itched
*********
oh... i got my cough report--- turns out it is basically megasophagus-- like deagle -- inefficient swallowing-- but i love the doctor's recommendation--- walking around eating klondike bars is far healthier than lying in bed drinking  chicken soup..

barking barking barking grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  1. HI, CARLENE: REGARDING THE SOUND: I DON'T THINK THE DEGREE OF SPONTANEITY "IMPLIES THINGS MIGHT BE WRITTEN AND REHEARSED", I JUST THINK KNOWING THE SOUND IS TURNED ON, YOU AND YOUR STAFF WON'T FEEL AS FREE TO LET IT ALL HANG OUT, AS IT WERE. WITH THE SOUND TURNED ON, YOU'LL KNOW THE WORLD IS LISTENING (AND WATCHING), WHICH, OF NECESSITY, MIGHT CAUSE ELEMENTS OF YOUR SPONTANEITY TO DISAPPEAR. I THINK WITH THE SOUND TURNED ON, YOU ALL WILL HAVE TO MAINTAIN A CERTAIN MODICUM OF DECORUM (SUCH AS, NO CUSSING - HAHAHAHAHHA...), THAT YOU DON’T ORDINARILY HAVE TO MAINTAIN WHEN THE SOUND IS TURNED OFF. JUST MY TWO CENTS... ; )
