APRIL 15 2014

I AM SORRY IF I OFFENDED ANYONE.. BUT THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE HAVE TO DISCUSS THINGS ONLY THE BOARD ARE SUPPOSED TO HEAR-- LIKE APPLICANTS AND THEIR MEDICAL INFO-- AND I HAVE TO CLEAR OUT SPACE TO DO THAT. GRACIOUS LIVING IS ON SUNDAY AFTERNOONS-- THE REST OF THE TIME IT IS WORK-- AS SUSAN FOUND OUT-- EVEN EXHAUSTING SOMETIMES .  I THINK ALL I SAID WAS GO FIND GRACE WHO NEEDS HELP WITH THE LAUNDRY.. ALONG WITH COMPLAINING ABOUT BEING MORE AND MORE DEAF SO ALL CONVERSATIONS SOUND LIKE BLAH BLAH BLAH.

BEING/GOING DEAF IS FAR MORE DIFFICULT THAN I EVER IMAGINED... I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY THERE IS A SOMEWHAT ISOLATED  DEAF COMMUNITY ... WHEN I TOOK THOSE SIGN LANGUAGE COURSES FROM  KAREN  SSHE REALLY IMPRESSED ON THE CLASS 2 THINGS..
THERE WAS A VERY HEALTHY, FUN DEAF COMMUNITY-- WHO WENT TO CERTAIN RESTAURANTS BECAUSE THEY HAD ROUND TABLES AND EVERYONE COULD SEE THE SIGNED CONVERSATIONS...  AND THE SECOND WAS MANY DEAF PEOPLE ARE ANGRY THAT THEIR PARENTS TRIED TO KEEP THEM EXCLUSIVELY IN THE HEARING WORLD WITH IMPLANTS AND LIP READING  INSTEAD OF SHOWING THEM THE COMPLETE COMFORTABLE WORLD OF SIGN LANGUAGE COMMUNICATION.
SILENCE IS EIRIE...

ONE  ASL EXPRESSION I LEARNED VERY WELL FROM HER IS  "SH#T WOMAN ,  YOU NEED TO PRACTICE"  THAT IS WHY AT MAIL CALL-- THAT IS ONE WORD I DON'T SEEM TO HAVE TO PAY FOR BECAUSE NO ONE RECOGNIZES IT.

KAREN  IS WHY I GOT INVOLVED AT THE NE HOME FOR THE DEAF--- WHICH IS WHERE I MET MELISSA (BALANCE AND DEAF) WHO GOT OUR FIRST SERVICE DOG.... ANNIE SDP #401-- WHO JUST PASSED HER YEARLY PHYSICAL AT 11 YEARS OLD... ONE OF THE MERLE GIRLS.
******************
WE HAVE AN APPLICATION  FROM ONE OF MY FIRST VOLUNTEERS-- SHE IS THE ONE WHO WROTE THE RULES FOR VOLUNTEERS    "

 VOLUNTEERS
RULES WHILE AT
THE SERVICE DOG PROJECT:

IF IT’S BROKEN, FIX IT
IF IT’S DIRTY, CLEAN IT
IF IT’S SMELLY, PICK IT UP
IF IT’S EMPTY, FILL IT
IF YOU TRIP OVER IT, MOVE IT
IF IT’S GOT FOUR LEGS AND A TAIL, LOVE IT
IF IT’S GOT TWO LEGS
 AND RIDES A GREEN GOLF CART LISTEN CLOSELY TO IT 
               
 WE CALLED HER THE VERBIAGE COMMITTEE -- SHE NEVER PROOFREAD ANYTHING SHE DID NOT RE-WRITE..
************
AND ANNIE HAS A GOOD CONCEPT GOING  BASICALLY HAVE A WEIGH IN... AND EVERY POUND YOU GAIN SHOULD COST YOU $2
***

EVERY POUND I GAIN - $2.00 (NO SABOTAGING ME BY ASKING GRACE TO MAKE MAC & CHEESE) 

WILL CALC WEEKLY AND MAKE MONTHLY DONATIONS.  MAYBE I SHOULD USE THE NUMBER OF TIMES I CAN GO UP PUPPY HILL AS A BENCHMARK,  OR USE A NEW WEIGHT EQUIVALENCY TO MAKE IT MORE FUN - I LOST A WEEK OLD STEADMAN...OR NEED TO LOSE A 6 MONTH OLD DANE...OR WEIGH WHAT OPAL WEIGHS (HMMMM - MAY NEED TO LOOK AT THEIR LAST WEIGHTS - I COULD BE ONTO SOMETHING).  AS LONG AS I'M NOT GAINING WHAT THAT MONSTER WHOOPIE PIE WEIGHED. 

SO THERE IT IS - IN WRITING...IF I DON'T LOSE, WILL BE TOO EMBARRASSED TO VOLUNTEER AND THAT CANNOT HAPPEN AS SDP BRINGS ME SUCH GREAT JOY AND PEACE.  I SUPPOSE IF I REALLY WANTED ACCOUNTABILITY I SHOULD TELL THE CPS - THEY'D NOTICE EVERY OUNCE (+ OR -)!

WE SEEM TO HAVE  100% APPROVAL ON PAINTING THE VANS TO MATCH MY CAR.-- I THINK STEVE'S WIFE HAS THE MACHINE TO MAKE OUR LOGOS FOR THE DOORS.
*******
DRESSING UP?? 

1. LOOKING INTO PAINTING THE BARN-- WE HAVE A SPRAYER-- IF BUD CAN KEEP IT WORKING-- PAINT SPRAYERS ARE FINICKY-- IT WOULD NOT TAKE LONG  AND WE HAVE  THE TYVEK SUITS..
2. SPREADING STONEDUST IN THE SAND RING.. I AM NOT SURE IF THE DOGS WOULD LIKE IT-- SO WE MUST KEEP THE GRASSY AREAS WELL DEVELOPED SO THEY CAN RUN ON THOSE...
3. CONCRETE POURING...FOR THE EXTRA AREA OF THE BARN  WILL NEED SOME SERIOUS PLANNING FOR THE OUTSIDE RUNS--- THEY WILL CONFLICT WITH THE RUNOFF FROM THE ARENA...
4. GET A HUGE DUMPSTER-- AND FILL IT..ESPECIALLY WITH THE STUFF BEHIND THE ARENA.
5.  I REALLY SHOULD GET THE BACK LINE OF THE PROPERTY SURVEYED... I THINK THERE IS ANOTHER  USEABLE ACRE THAT IS MINE IN THE WOODS BEHIND THE ARENA... 
6.  FENCING-- DO I DARE ORDER A LOAD OF RAILS TO REPLACE THE SPLIT RAILS THAT ARE SO TIRED LOOKING???

AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

I ONLY WALKED 783 STEPS YESTERDAY--- GOT TO WORK ON THAT....BECAUSE I CONSUMED 1800 CALORIES

BLESS THIS BRACELET.

TIME TO FILE THE TAX EXTENSION...
