today is the day to conquer  the constipated closet   ---i have started the   "if i have not worn it in a year-- then someone else needs it more than i do..."  except for maybe my favorite black jacket which has been lost for  year.
if i have  need for more than 4 shirts it only means i have not done the laundry. .. i wear the same thing so i need 4 sets ---- one in the wash, one n the dryer, one on and one to cover any slight disruption in the sequence..

my sister... who is like earlene--perfectly coiffed- made the statement once about buying a new coat so she had to go home and throw one out so she would have room.. 
that is  wrong...... but so is my constipated closet --- kitty said she would take this stuff to some place that needs it-- so i have now started a kitty pile on the front porch--  2 bags full so far... and  the day is not over yet.

i also found some of my clothing which is suitable only for tuesday's  mailcall

i suppose in the  family clothing discussion i should include janine-- who will go buy a cocktail dress for $4 at goodwill industries, have it cleaned for  $10 , wear  it to some fancy " Hunt Ball"  then take it to some high priced  consignment shop and sell it for $15..   don't laugh--- that outfit she is wearing on the cover of the calendar was 45 minutes from a second hand store she frequents-- and she loooks perfect.... having had kitty hand tailor it with duct tape and huge horse blanket safety pins... but it looks goooood

boy can i start a monday morning with all sorts of declartions---- like new years eve resolutions...
they  often drift sideways---

i should feed the house dogs--- bailey, bentley,opal,mariah  boo and ariot ( so who's counting??)oh  chaos too???
to that end it is my goal to find 7 costco white buckets of my very own--- we once were the proud owners of about 170 white buckets before i stopped collecting them at costco..   they are bakery buckets that had icing in them.  
so that wil  mean either a trip to the laundry storage room-- or costco-- i can not believe we are out of buckets.

besides there will be an extensive training process to get them all to eat politely  which  could be amusing to the  cp's.. -- got to schedule it    like 9:15am   so all other feeding is done.

bentley has definite feelings about his food dish which i find annoying--- ... he needs to accept the command "knock it off" 
i will not employ the whiffle bat-- it would be too unwieldy - i would not be able to apply it fast enough-- a water whiffle  bottle  could be applied more accurately --- plan ahead...
**********

we had a bunch of  newcomers at sunday stew...  we were in the guest house-- which got packed-- we need to spill into the training room a little quicker-- we almost stewed outside-- except the wind blew us away.... literally.  between  the open fire and those overhead gas heaters  we can sometimes do the cold... but the wind ..... is another matter.
********
mark is scanning  all those "because" letters into his computer   before he pputs them in the guest house..

and i am told  tina is gathering info about how did you find sdp???  that should be interesting...

***********
all the kids in reno and colorado who "saved thier allwance"  and sent t he $1 to us... i was told they were  buying a brick with the extra funds... i thought we could send them a shatupon society certificate... but then i thought of all thse 8 year olds going home and proudly saying "i am now a member of the shatupon society"   
might not have the desired effect.  i may have to redesign the certificate..
maybe we can send them a calendar... 
**********
we do have calendars--- we have made a profit on them-- but we have a couple boxes i did not realize were calendars.. 
if any of you would like some to distribute  some to anyone you think might donate money to us  - or  to some nursing home etc...that needs one ---let me know and send the addresses-  they are such a thing of beauty--- each picture could be framed.
************
and lastly-- i am now inthe jewelery design business--- betsy turned all my 1/2" monkey fists into jewelery-- and came bck and said ".. smaller???"  so with my tweezers i have made 2 even smaller-- which she will  turn into sterling silver ear rings... etc... 
for mothers day--
i didn't  know there was one.
********
on we go
