JAN 28,2014
i go thru the wall looking at the pictures-- they are all interesting... there is one that reminds me to go have an orange for bReakfase... but this time there is what looks like grannie on an electric chair on a trailer behind a motorcycle---love it !!--

nearly sold out...  thanks to you all---
*********
moving on.... in the camerA DEPARTMENT... GOT ANOTHER BOX FROM TIM WITH THE PIECES TO GET THE ARENA CAMERA GOING... WHICH I PLAN TO DO TODAY.
ESPECIALLY SINCE THERE IS WONDERFUL HEAT IN THE FEED ROOM AND KENNEL
********
WHAT DIFFERENCE HAVE THE CAMERAS  MADE??
LET ME COUNT THE WAYS... WELL JUST A FEW OF THEM...

CONFIDENCE TO BREED 6 LITTERS LAST YEAR..AND DONATE DOGS TO 28 PEOPLE.

 THE BIGGEST INVISIBLE IS 2 MAMOUTH DRYWELLS  TO COPE WITH THE HUGE LAUNDRY PROJECT.  MORE PUPS.. MORE LAUNDRY...-- THAT WAS NEARLY A HEALTH PROBLEM OF SOAPY WATER SOMETIMES IN THE PARKING LOT.  IN MY HALF VAST KNOWLEDGE... I KNOW A DRY WELL WHEN I SEE ONE..... THESE ARE HUGE.  AND  COST ABOUT 40K

2 COMMERCIAL WASHERS AND EVENTUALLY 2 COMMERCIAL DRYERS--- BECAUSE WE NOW HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY THE ELECTRIC BILLTO DRY BY MACHINE---I CAN TAKE DOWN THE SCAFFOLDING WHICH WAS OUR DRYING RACK FOR YEARS.

SELF STARTING GENERATOR TO KEEP THE BARN  LIVABLE IN THE EVENT OF POWER OUTAGE

 A  PROPER FURNACE..

AND -- THE TRACTOR WITH IT'S HEATED CAB-- NO MORE WEARING DIAPERS  ON MY HEAD IN BLIZZARDS

CONCRETE WHERE WE NEED CONCRETE---AND PLUMBING SO WE CAN HOSE WHERE WE NEED HOSING ( WHICH RUNS INTO OUR 40K DRYWELLS TOO)  WE SMELL BETTER  

JUST FOR  FUN....  CALCULATE ----2  HUGE HORSES, A MEDIUM DONKEY AND A SMALL ONE  THEN 50 OR SO DOGS AND ANOTHER 10 OR SO PEOPLE DAILY  FIGURE OUT THE VOLUME OF URINE PRODUCED BY ALL THOSE KIDNEYS.-- SOMETIMES NATURE NEEDS A HAND IN MANAGING ALL THAT FLUID...  WE NOW CAN DO THAT.

**** I REMEMBER  -- HERE WE GO--- 
I HAD TO HAVE A DRAFT HORSE  AND MINI DONKEY  ON STAGE AT THE EMERSON? THEATER IN BOSTON---  FIRST PROBLEM... I MANAGED TO GET 3 PARKING  TICKETS BECAUSE OF THE LEGNTH OF THE TRAILER--- SECOND PROBLEM.. BEFORE THE SHOW I SET UP A FRIEND-- LINDA-- ON ONE SIDE OF THE STAGE WITH THE DRAFT HORSE-DUKE  - WONDERFUL BLACK HORSE-- WAS ONCE THE LEAD TEAM FOR WALT DISNEY-- PROBABLY 2000 POUNDS  ( I CHECKED THE FLOORING)  ---RETIRED...  I LEFT ALL OUR STUFF ON HER SIDE AND WENT ROUND TO THE OTHER WITH THE DONKEY.. ALL WENT WELL-- THEN INTO THE SECOND ACT -- THERE WAS A FLURY OF ACTIVITY AROUND DUKE-- I COULD SEE ONLY THE FRONT HALF--- TURNS OUT...  DUKE HAD TO PEE  AND THE ONLY THING WITHIN LINDA'S REACH WAS MY NEW LL BEAN  DOWN JACKET...

I KNOW LLBEAN TAKES RETURNS FOR ANY REASON-- BUT I WOULD NOT ABUSE THAT -- EVEN THO I THOUGHT  SOMEONE AT LLBEAN MIGHT HAVE HAD A GOOD LAUGH OVER THE PROBLEM..  THAT JACKET HUNG OUTSIDE FOR 2 MONTHS-- AND I EVENTUALLY WORE IT ALL THE TIME.

*********
THEN THE FUN FUND

THE FLAG IS A GOOD ADDITION..IT LOOKS GREAT ON AND OFF CAMERA..
THE TIPI
REFRIG AND STOVE FOR THE T TENT...
AND SO  MANY LITTLE THINGS...
**********
THOSE $1 FUN FUND DONATIONS DO ADD UP.
********
SPEAKING OF THAT...

THE REGULAR WHITE ENVELOPES CONTAINING  THE POO PICKING CARDBOARD SOMETIMES GET  CHEWED UP IN THE POSTAL MACHINERY---  PLEASE DON'T PUT ANYTHING OF GREAT VALUE IN THOSE ENVELOPES-- A COUPLE PIECES OF CARDBOARD WITH THE RETREAT COUPLE DOLLARS SEEMS TO WORK OK... BUT DON'T INCLUDE ANY CHECKS IN THOSE INEXPENSIVE  ENVELOPES...  THEY GET MANGLED.

TIME TO DRINK THE COFFEE

  1. OK, CPs may have helped fund all this, but you were the visionary and spearhead setting this in motion. Reminds me of Eleanor Roosevelt (and I'm old enough to remember her.)
