APRIL 26,2014
WE GET TOO SOON OLD  AND TOO LATE SMART.-- OLD NORWEGIAN SAYING-- OR MAYBE AMISH--MAYBE IT REALLY WAS MY FATHERS... WHO KNOWS...  I AM SURE ONE OF YOU WILL GOOGLE THAT AND LET ME KNOW

IF IT COMES UP  CARL PRICE---LET ME KNOW.

ACTUALLY HE DID ONE THING OF NOTE THRU THE AGES-- AN D THAT IS TO INVENT THE VEHICLE TRAILER WHERE A RIGHT TRIANGLE FOLDS DOWN TO MAKE A RAMP TO LOAD THINGS LIKE TRACTORS ON THE TRAILER--- I SEE 100 A DAY ( well nearly) they are often behind a dump TRUCK CARRYING THE BACK HOE THAT FILLS THE DUMP TRUCK..

IF I HAD A PENNY FOR EACH ONE.......  BUT THE LAWYER THAT WORKED ON THE PATENT  DID NOT DO A GOOD  JOB AND ANOTHER COMPANY CHANGED THE HINDGE AND MY FATHER NEVER GOT A DIME-- BUT HE HAD A GOOD TIME DOING IT...
I HAVE THE ORIGINAL PATENT IN MY FILES SOMEWHERE-- THE PHOTO IS FROM  ?1945 FROM THE LOOKS OF THE CARS IN THE PICTURE..

SO THERE IS A HISTORY TO MY TRYING TO PATENT THE SHEEWEEE  -- I LEARNED-- DON'T BOTHER... BUT INVENTING THINGS IS FUN---

THERE ARE SOOOO MANY-- AND I PASS THEM ON--- 

BUG SEASON IS COMING... I MAKE A FUNNEL OF NET   24" IN DIAMETER AND TIE IT TO A $19 FAN-- BLOWING AIR OUT OF THE DEAGLE HOUSE THUS CATCHING MOSQUITOS ETC...  THERE HAVE BEEN WEEKS WHEN I CATCH ABOUT  1/2 A QUART OF DEAD MOSQUITOS... I  BOUGHT A $500  MOSQUITO MAGNET  EXPECTING GREAT THINGS AND IT DID NOT EVEN COMPARE TO MY NET.. 

MY OTHER EXPERIMENT WITH THE BUGS WAS TO  TWIST THE NET SO I CAPTURED THEM-- MOSTLY LIVE--- THEN SOAKED THEM IN RAID AND LEFT THEM FOR A COUPLE HOURS  AND  THEY WERE ALL ALIVE IN SPITE OF THE RAID--- SO I STOMPED ON THEM--  THAT WORKED.

MADE ME WONDER...  I HAVE HAD EXPERINCE CUTTING  A FANCY LAWN FOR A BBQ PARTY  ( NOT HERE) AND NOTICED HOW MANY MOSQUITO BITES I GOT ON MY ANKLES... WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE GRASS CUTTER INTO A FAN SO YOU COULD VACUUM   THE LAWN  WHICH WOULD CLEAR THEM FOR A WHILE AT LEAST...  I DON'T THINK THEY TRAVEL FAR-- THEY ARE LIVING IN THAT LOVELY GRASS.. SO BY DISRUPTING THE GRASS  YOU COULD THEN VACUUM THEM INTO A   NET..  YOU WOULD HAVE TO DO IT AFTER YOU MOWED AND HAD THE MOWER CATCH THE GRASS CLIPPINGS---

THERE ARE SO MANY TIMES WHEN A CHEMICAL SOLUTION IS NOT THE ULTIM,ATE..

I SUPPOSE HARD PHYSICAL WORK  vs SLEEPING PILLS WOULD FALL IN THAT CATAGORY

AND THEN THERE IS HOME DEPOT AND THEIR CARRIAGES--- GIVE ME A COUPLE COAT HANGERS AND YOU COULD STAND UP MOPS, 2X4'S AND  OTHER LONG OBJECTS COMMONLY SEEN WHACKING OTHER CUSTOMERS.

I DID NOT DO A NUTTY PROFESSOR LAST NIGHT... I WAS JUST TOO TIRED TO DO A CREATIVE ONE SUCCESSFULLY AND I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO PREPARE FOR  SOME OF THE MORE INSTRUCTIVE ONES.. I FEEL LIKE A DREADFUL FAILURE... I REALLY MEANT TO DO ONE A WEEK.

I MUST TRY HARDER. PLUS IT IS FUN..

WHAT I DID INSTEAD IS PAPERWORK-- AND THAT AIN'T FUN AT ALL
*********
WE HAVE CP'S IN THE GUEST HOUSE FOR A COUPLE DAYS--   IT IS WORKING... WE SEEM TO HAVE A FEW COMING AND GOING ON A REGULAR BASIS..

AND HAVING NOEL GO HOME FOR HESE FEW OVERNIGHTS HAS WORKED... HE PUPS ARE AT LEAST DRINKING MILK FROM A BOWL A LITTLE ANYWAY--  THEY AHVE TO LEARN ABOUT WATER... SO THAT IS NEXT FOR  PUPPY SITTERS TO DO.

NOW TO FINISH THE FEEDING STATION..
