we had a split second power outage AND I LOST THE DD
SO START AGAIN
MRS ASPEN ARRIVED UNEVENTFULLY EXCEPT I MSSED SOMEWHERE THAT SHE WAS ONE EYE'D -- IT IS HEALED OVER BUT COULD USE ONE OF GRACE'S DESIGNS - A FLAP OVER THE HOLE-- I WILL TRY HANDLING HER TODAY-- I KNOW SHE HAS A GREAT WHOA-- SHE SEEMS VERY "LIGHT" TO LEAD AROUND-- SO FAR... AND STOPS DEAD WHEN YOU SAY WHOA... SO FAR... MAKES ME WONDER IF SHE SPENT HOURS HAULING LOGS OR WORKING FOR THE AMISH... IF THAT IS REALLY SO, A GOOD WHOA IS WONDERFUL-- B EING ONE EYE'D MEANS YOU NEED TO TALK TO HER CONSTANTLY TO REMIND HER 1. YOU ARE A FRIENDLY BEING -- AND 2. WHERE YOU ARE. HAVING ONE HAND ON HER IS ALSO GOOD WITH A VISION PROBLME-- BUT THAT ASSUMES SHE HAS NO INTENTION OF NAILING YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE.... OTHERWISE YOU ARE TELLING HER WHERE TO AIM.... DETAILS
SPEAKING OF TAILS-- I HAD A VISION OF TYING A WHIFFLE BAT TO HER TAIL TO WARN THE DOGS...
HER HARNESS LOOKS RESPECTABLE-- A TYPICAL WORK HARNESS IN NEED OF SOME MURPHY'S AND WARM WATER..-- PROBbly in the kitchen- WHAT ELSE CAN HAPPEN IN THE KITCHEN THAT HAS NOT ALREADY HAPPENEND. AND THERE IS THAT HOOK IN THE MIDDLE.
IT IS A TWISTED MESS AT THE MOMENT-- BUT IS BASICALLY 3 PIECES ONCE ORGANIZED -- BRIDLE, COLLar AND THE REST
WE HAD 4 DRAFT HORSES ONCE- I HATE TO THINK OF HOW MUCH TIME I SPENT WITH HORSES WHEN IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOGS.
ANYWAY I WAS ALSWAYS PLEASED WITH MYSELF AT KNOWING HOW TO HARNESS THE BUDWEISERS. AND THEN HANDLE THE 8 LINES. I HAVE HD CONVERSATION S WITH SOME OF THE 8 HITCH DRIVERS ABOUT HANDLING SO MANY ( 8) LINES GOING AROUND CORNERS IN CROWDS... SOME GO RIGHT -- SOME GO LEFT DEPENDING ON WHO IS PULLING WHAT
THINK ABOUT IT... IF THE FRONT PAIR PULL GOING AROUND A CORNER THE OTHER 6 AND THE WAGON WILL WIPE OUT THE CROWD...
I GUESS THAT IS YOUR MENTAL EXERCISE FOR THE DAY
OUR CAMERA PEOPLE HAVE A GRREAT PROJECT GOING OF ANNOUNCING WHERE YOU ARE FROM WHEN YOU COMMENT ONLINE I WILL OVE TO SEE THE DETAILS-- WHAT IS HERE NOW IS AMAZING.
CHAOS WENT WITH EQARLENE OVERNIGHT
I WELCOME GETTING BACK ON STRIDE WITH NORMAL TRIANED HELP-- ALOT OF TIME YESTERDAY WAS WASTED OVER LIGHT SWITHCHES ONLY TO FIND OUT MEGAN UNSCREWS BULBS...
THE VOLUNTEERS WERE TERRIFFIC...
KRISTEN EVEN COOKED DINNER-- A ROAST--- BUT HE STUFFING WITH CELLERY AND ONLINS WAS SO GOOD I CULD HAVFE QUIT THERE-- AND SHE COOKED THE ROAST BECAUSE IT SMELLED GOOD.. SHE IS A VEGGE
I just had to tell you how amazing Boris has behaved. My family and I went to The Red Lion Inn (extremely well known and historic hotel) for a very formal Christmas lunch. Everyone around us was dressed like a red carpet party and I feared that Boris was going to be uncooperative in the large dining hall. Luckily, the table had four legs instead of one in the middle like most restaurants. As soon as we got to our table, I directed him underneath and he immediately curled himself under. He stayed there for the entire hour and a half meal without any of the other 'new' customers noticing as they arrived to enjoy their dinner. When the bill had been paid, my fears once again grew, afraid that he would stand up and the entire table would flip over. But to my relief, Boris crawled out from under this table without any trouble, and the unsuspecting family beside us gasped in shock as this ginormous dog came out from under our table. It's not everyday you see a Great Dane appear out of thin air in such a high class place. Their expressions were truly priceless. The moment reminded me of when ten clowns all fit into the clown car and when they all got out, no one could believe how they were all able to fit inside. Everyone was so happy to have him there, as was I! I attached a photo to this email of Boris and I in front of the historic Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, MA. He has made my Christmas day spectacular...all thanks to your wonderful organization! I know I always thank you, but words will never be enough to express how grateful I am for him. He completes me and gives me the freedom I thought I would never have! Merry Christmas!
Boris and Lauren
