FEB 20 2014
i made a new monkey fist---about 10 inches across--  i am going to use it as a keyring thing--- this bit about having to have a key to start the car is a new concept in my life...

i never drove anything anyone wanted to steal before.. 

it certainly is almost as nice as shelia's car.
this one does not have that homey feel to it yet like hers...-- with an accumulation of odd papers, pennies , one glove, a mannequin's left arm  and a gate opener.

somebody...?kathy?  suggested the first thing i should read about is how to shut off the alarm...
i think she is right...  the durango (2003) has always had a pequiliar electrical system- which  twice that i remember.. caused me to drive around with the alarm going off.  once i was wth janine at the topsfield fairgrounds-- it was screaming-- i called the dealer-- janine- who thinks bigger than i do, called detroit... they could nt stop it so we just drove home.

i am wandering thru this accredittion-- last time - 5 years ago  i had a section of  site specific dangers... most of these service dog training places do not have some of the "exposures" we do... like the hay door right over the main door  where you  are supposed to yell before dropping hay/shavings... keys are left in tractors and golf carts etc

i do not take kindly to unattended children.  the rule- you must be within 2 feet of a 2 year old and 10 feet of a 10 year old  still goes..

the accreditation is a bummer. all that stuff has to be spelled out.  page after page after page.
"it is our policy xxxxxxxxxxx"
**********
i am supposed to give a talk today-- i hope theresa knows where and when-- i hope she also knows where those nice posters are..
********
the good tractor has gone for a face lift-- i.e.  a new plow-- they promise to bring it back tomorrow...
*********
i tried out a new theory last night... if i have breakfast while doing this i am often sleepy... if i have lunch i can never keep my eyes open.. so i have decided i am eating  at the wrong time of day.. i could n't sleep last night about midnight-- so i had  a "dinner" then and slept til 5.

maybe i have discovered something.

now if i can just go without food at noon..maybe.......
*******
the chicken bricks are almost 1/2 sold out..  they send me the days activity WHICH I  RUN THRU and i am thrilled to see many new names( MIND YOU... ALONG WITH ALL THE OLD FAMILIAR ONES...)
********
TIME TO DO THE EARS AGAIN...  I WISH BOO'S EARS LOOKED MORE PROMISING...  IT IS TIME SHE DID NOT  NEED THE TAPE
****
SENT ME A KLONDIKE  GAME.... MAYBE AT THE NEXT WHELPING AS WE SIT AROUND.. WE CAN TRY THAT...  SOUNDS GOOD !!

  1. It sounds like your car is pretty nice and I'm glad you found one. Just a note about your special 'monkey fist' key chain. Ignitions are not always as sturdy as they look and if you put too much weight on the key chain, you pull against the ignition. Although the odds are slim, you can damage the ignition switch and be stuck somewhere with a key that doesn't work (yep, been there - done that). I don't know the details of which models or makes or old or new, how much weight, etc., but apparently, it happens more often than you might realize.
