feb 27, 2014
it always helps to start the day with typing in my name and having the computer say "i don't think so"

****
for those who have said they would like to hear the little darlings bark, i have the urge to turn on th e mic... because nutmeg is telling us all kinds of things-- but i am afraid if i turn it on it could be a big surprise to any of you who have the computer in "rest" mode.

health update..
we took boo to the vet's-- she has one squinty eye which i know george fears... -- the decision was maybe lyme... because megan remembered last week she had a  little limp..
lyme is certainly a nasty problem-- i was not aware blindness could be one of them- 
so boo is now on a bunch of things-- eye drops and doxy etc-- that would be a different challenge ---one deaf- the other blind----  snap the two  harness together and we will be all set . deaf leading the blind.
**************
one spay.. one neutered and on we go... this maroon is a nice big dog...  needs some more miles so he can understand what is happening...  bud 1 seemed to do well with havoc yesterday in costco... maybe we could convince h im to wander around with maroon.  when he gets back from ski mobiling. 
***********
julie and i managed to "do" brooksby village yesterday-- it certainly is something those people look forward to---and we should continue-- problem is i don;t do the long walk that it is.. there are ?7 huge buildings all connected with hampster "habitrails" no two on the same level-- so somebody else is going to have to do that  gig    walking is not in my job description..
*******
the yuppy puppy is a wonderful thing if you can deal with it with only  one dog--- otherwise it can be a fight in the making.  and it needs split second timing...
*******
my big fun chore of the day is to dye the hanging ropes purple --- i had extra rope from the huge monkeyfist.. and the hangers need tydying up.. they are very handy  and everyone uses them even if they aren't handicaped--  the ropes get that "used" look and can stand some chlorox bathing.  
*******
and i have a special request at mail call-- to show how one of you cp's folded the grocery bgs around the  cardboard which makes them super handy

it is a little like a training collar and leash--- rarely do we ever need scoopers and no bag, so pairing them up in spare time makes sense.  
with the training collar i was putting a snap at the end of the leash before i realized it was the waste of a snap
********
and then there is the drawing for the flight to the retreat next fall..  i think we are to do that ?? next tuesday?   that rotating barrel is almost full-- well... nearly...  it is certainly solid cardboards.. which aftet the draw  we can use for scoopers !!!
*******
explore crew is working on the picture quality  and sound etc  they include me on their emails  so at least  i know they are doing something... i could not tell you what-- they speak a different language of letters.. not words...  like   ...the MOXIR should TRQN  but it must be SIV..
******
other than that ... a normal day

maybe just maybe i can go buy purple dye in my purple car-- and take maroon with me

( we already had a dog named purple--- marvelous dog so retired the name-- as a tiny pup she was one of the first big commercials i did-- she as a pup the size of a football had to run about 200 ' across boston commons dragging a leash... she did it perfectly -- i had mom and her siblings at the finish...  and i made the leashout of a ribbon so it would float as she ran)  it was on during a superbowl....  good dog purple.

  1. I'd love to see the commercial Purple did. Do you remember the approximate year and/or theme and/or company?

  2. I was going to ask the same thing. Maybe we can find it on YouTube.
