DEC 24, 2013

A QUICK RUN THRU TH E POO AN D  VOMIT REPORT--  NO PUPPY VOMIT ( WHICH HAD WORRIED ME)   THAT BIT ABOUT MILK OUT THE NOSE COULD HAVE BEEN A VERY BAD THING... BUT IT SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN ONLY A   RANDOM THING... BAILEY LET FLY WITH YELLOW GOO BECAUSE HER TUMMY WAS EMPTY-- THIS IS A COMMON DANE THING..  EARLY MORNING COOKIE T USUALLY  TAKES CARE OF THE YELLOW BILE PROBLEM...  AND THE PUPPY POO'S HAVE HAD THE TELL TALE SPAGETTI OF ROUNDWORMS.. IT IS ALWAYS  SO EXCITING TO SEE A MEDICAL TREATMENT THAT IS TOTALLY NECESSARY--- AND THAT WORKS...  

TODAY WITH EARLENE HERE WE SHOULD START THEIR VITAMINS-- AND I THINK WE HAVE A FEW- FROM THE WISH LIST...   I WILL CHECK ( HOPEFULLY)

THE EXCITEMENT OF THE NIGHT WAS DAVID 2 AND DUSTIN ARRIVED-- HE LOOKS TERRIFFIC--- SO DOES DAVID... AND WE SOLVED THE RACING WHEELCHAIR ORDERING PROBLEM... THERE WERE ALL SORTS OF SPECIAL ACCESSORIES-- A 14 ICH THIS AND A 16 INCH THAT  KIND OF THING.
T ANY RATE IT IS ORDERED AND IS TO BE SHIPPED HERE-- WHERE WE CAN THEN FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET IT TO WAYNE-- I STILL DO  NOT EVEN HAVE WAYNE'S LAST NAME... BUT THE WHEELCHAIR THING IS ORDERED 

DAVID HAS PLANS TO LEAVE HERE EARLY AND DRIVE TO  ?NEBRASKA?  WHERE IHS KIDS ARE-- HE SAID IT IS A 22 HOUR DRIVE... WHEREVER...  S O I EXPECT HIM SHORTLY FOR COFFEE.. HE STAYED IN THE TRAINING ROOM..

THE OTHER EXCITEMENT WAS THAT PAM GOT HER SCHEDULE MIXED UP AND DID NOT SHOW FOR OVERNIGHT..   GRACE WAS HERE TIL ABOUT MIDNIGHT   WHEN I GOT UP AND COVERED WITH  KRISTEN.... ( A KENYON COLLEGE FRIEND.) I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO  EARLENE -- PAUL-- AND THE REST OF THE VOLUNTEERS TO COME MANAGE THE PLACE SO I CAN FALL ASLEEP IN SOME CORNER..

BRYAN ( SHELIA'S HUSBAND) SPENT  TIME FIGURING OUT HOW/WHERE TO INSTALL THE AUTOMATIC GENERATOR FOR THE  BARN/KENNEL-- AND SINCE THAT WILL INVOLVE GAS, IT IS TIME TO FIGURE OUT A FULL SIZED FURNACE FOR THE KENNELS...  THIS TOOK SOME TIME...
 CURENT NEED IS TO MOVE THE SNOW AWAY FROM THE BARN DOOR-- SO THEY CAN PUT IN A GRAVEL BED FOR THE GENERATOR AND TANK... ( WHICH HAS TO BE 10 FEET AWAY  FROM THE GENERATOR... )  BUD--- PAUL... PUSH... 

THE FULL SIZE FURNACE SHOULD ALSO BE FIGURED TO HEAT THE  AREA   OF THE 2 STALLS CLOSEST TO THE AREAN  WHICH WILL BECOME DOG TERRITORY.

THE PROJECT THERE IS TO MOVE THE GATE OPENING BETWEEN THE 2 PASTUEES UP ON THE HILL-- IT SHOLD NEVER HAVE BEEN PUT IN THE "VALLEY"  BECAUSE THE MUD CAN GET TO BE 18 INCHES DEEP

HORSES ARE GREAT MUD MAKERS...   DEPOSIT VEGITATION .. THEN CHURN IT UP WITH THEIR POINTY HOOVES..
ONE HORSE  CAN TURN A  ONE ACRE GRASSY FIELD INTO ONE ACRE  MUD IN 30 DAYS-  ESPECIALLY  IN MARCH- APRIL.

ACTUALLY  TO LOOK ON THE POSITIVE..... THEY CAN TURN A ONE ACRE GRAVEL PIT INTO ONE ACRE TOP SOIL IN A YEAR

HAVING THE GATE  BETWEEN THE 2 FIELDS  ON THE HILLSIDE WILL IMPROVE THE ENTIRE SITUATION.  

AND WHILE I AM ON THE TOPIC OF MANURE--- KEEP IN MIND IF OUR MANURE PILE IS KEPT PROPERLY, I CAN SELL IT... HOWEVER  IF YOU MAKE A TRASH PILE OF IT WITH A FEW HAY STRINGS 3 COFFEE CUPS AND A SODA CAN, I HAVE TO PAY SOMEONE TO REMOVE IT....



YESTERDAY'S MAILCALL BROUGHT ONE OF THOSE TICKET CHURNING THINGS FOR RAFFLE RUNNING-- AND 2 ROLLS OF TICKETS..

I AMJ NOT SURE WHAT WE ARE TO RAFFLE OFF  BUT I AM SURE THE CP'S HAVE IT ALL FIGURED OUT.. 

I THINK CHAOS IS DRYING UP  AND SO SHE SHOULD BE...  MAYBE TODAY PAUL CAN KEEP HER ENTERTAINED AN SEE IF SHE GETS FULL OF MILK... SHE IS FAR TOO FAT..  SO IE OPAL
SO ANYONE FEEDING PLEAS HAVE A LOOK AT WHO-- AND WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE ----- OPAL WAS OFFERED TWICE WHAT SHE NEEDED LAST NIGHT... SO THINK !!!

THE EAR PROJECT IS PROGRESSING PERFECTLY.... SO FAR...  IT IS AMAZING HOW MUCH BATTERING THAT HELMET WIL TAKE. WE SHOLD GIVE THEM SOME TIME TOGETHER AGAIN TODAY-- 

TOMORROW-- CHRISTMAS DAY WILL BE LIKE ANY OTHER DAY AROUND HERE-- SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE OFFERED TO FILL IN.-- THE MORE THE MERIER.. SO COME AHEAD..... LET US PRAY...

REMEMBER  ASPEN  ARRIVES TOMORROW  -- SHE IS THE 18 YEAR OLD PET  WHITE MULE-- SHOULD BE QUITE AN ADDITION... I AM TOLD SHE CAN BE RIDDEN IF YOU ARE NOT TOO FUSSY ABOUT WHERE YOU GO. -- AND I THINK SHE COMES WITH A FULL DRAFT HARNESS... NOT TOO SURE IF SHE PULLS ANYTHING-- BUT WE WILL FIND OUT.  IT WOULD BE VERY POETIC TO HAVE HER ACTUALLY DO SOME CHORE AROUND HERE-- LIKE DRAG THE RING... 

A GREAT PHOTO OP...

  3. In Pennsylvania, you have to have a "Small Games of Chance" license to have a 50-50 raffle. Have you checked into what Massachusetts requires, if anything?

    2. checked the law and it's all good! :) here is a part that helps explain:No raffle or bazaar shall be promoted, operated or conducted by any person or organization, unless the same is sponsored and conducted exclusively by (a) a veterans' organization chartered by the Congress of the United States or included in clause (12) of section five of chapter forty of the General Laws; (b) a church or religious organization; (c) a fraternal or fraternal benefit society; (d) an educational or charitable organization; (e) a civic or service club or organization; and (f) clubs or organizations organized and operated exclusively for pleasure, recreation and other nonprofit purposes, no part of the net earnings of which inures to the benefit of any member or shareholder.
