MAY 5 2014
i LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY----  

WE HAD AN APPLICANT- ONE OF HER QUESTIONS-- AND IT SEEMED TO BE A SERIOUS ONE-- WAS -- WOULD ONE OF OUR SERVICE DOGS RIDE IN HER KAYAK.-- ?

THAT IS A QUESTION I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED FROM BILL HUBER( CALENDAR PHOTOGRAPHER) ABOUT .....COULD WE SET UP???---- AND POSSIBLY WE COULD--  WE ARE THINKING OF A CANOE--- AT THE FAIRGROUNDS WHERE THERE IS ABOUT A 4 ACRE PUDDLE ABOUT 6" DEEP...  BUT FOR An applicant???? it is a different story.
********
 we have some serious work to do today---  THE SPOON FEEDING OF THE 4 PUPS HAS GOT TO GET ORGANIZED...  THAT DERBY RACE WAS CUTE--- BUT WE SHOULD HAVE DONE MORE HOMEWORK LIKE HAVING THEM CONCENTRATE ON THE NOISE OF THE SPOON AND CAN...  THEY GOT A LITTLE MORE  SCARED THAN I LIKE TO SEE...  SO NEW ROUTINE FOR THEM IS TO PLOP THEM IN THE OFFICE AND SIT AT MY DESK WITH THE CAN AND SPOON... IT WILL PROBABLY AKE 20 MINUTES--  THEY ARE CERTAINLY FOOD ORIENTED.

AND GET READY FOR BULLDOZER TYPE STUFF TOMORROW...
***********

YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN YOUR CHILDREN GET ADS FOR AARP(  FOR THE FOREIGN FOLK....THE "RP" PART IS RETIRED PEOPLE) .... AND THEY BEGIN TO COMPLAIN ABOUT BENDING OVER...MY OLDEST DAUGHTER NOTICED/ ADMIRED  OUR COUNTER HIGH RESTAURANT TYPE OVEN--- WHICH I  CAN ACTUALLY USE...-- AND COMPLAINED ABOUT GETTING STUFF OUT OF HER BROILER ON HER HANDS AND KNEES...-- SHE CAN STILL USE IT--- ANOTHE R  COUPLE YEARS SHE WILL DECIDE BROILING IS A BAD WAY TO COOK THINGS  THUS ELIMINATING THE BENDING PART OF COOKING.

STARTED ME THINKING......IF I WAS TO DESIGN A KITCHEN----- WHAT APPLIANCES COULD I HAVE KNEE HIGH UNDER THE COUNTER...--- I DECIDED A STOVE WITH OVEN UNDERNEATH IS A TERRIBLE IDEA...  BUT MAYBE YOU COULD PUT A DISHWASHER UNDER  A STOVE TOP -- OR OVEN... THE " UNDER COUNTER"  SPACE IS TOTALLY WASTED ON ANYONE  OF AARP AGE.

SO THE WAY TO MAKE A MILLION DOLLARS IS TO INVEST IN THAT SPRING LOADED CANTILEVERED CONTRAPTION WHICH TAKES  A MIXER- OR SOMETHING FROM UNDEER THE COUNTER  AND SNAPS IT INTO PLACE COUNTER HIGH.

I NEED ABOUT 4 OF THOSE-- MAYBE THEN I COULD FIND A  SIMPLE PAN TO BOIL AN EGG..

I OWN SEVERAL WHICH RESIDE UNDER MY COOKTOP
UNFORTUNATELY-- AND THIS IS THE DIFFICULT PART.... MY 5 QUART SPAGETTI BOILING TYPE  PANS ARE SECRETLY REPRODUCING DOWN THERE... MAYBE IT IS THAT SOME OF OUR VOLUNTEERS HAVE DECIDED TO CLEAN OUT THIER KITCHEN AND HAVE STUFFED 937 OF TEH  THINGS UNDER MY STOVE.

I CAN GET NOTHING OUT  OF THAT AREA.

HOW SECLUDED IS IT???
IT IS SO SECLUDED THAT GIZELLE ONCE DECIDED IT WAS THE PERFECT PLACE  FOR HER AND HER FRIENDS TO LIVE-- THEY ESTABLISHED A COMMUTER LINE BY CHEWING THRU THE FLOOR SO THEY COULD GO THRU  A HOLE IN THE CELLAR AND MAKE A MAD DASH FOR THE WOODS WHICH ARE ABOUT 10 FEET FROM THIER  WINTER HOME UNDER MY STOVE

 IT IS TOO SMALL A HOLE FOR PANS TO FALL THRU IT-- BUT THE DRAFT BLOWS UP REMINDING ME TO STERILIZE ANY PAN I AM USING FROM THAT AREA.

IT IS LITTLE FACTS LIKE THAT , THAT MAKE RUNNING THIS PLACE SO DIFFICULT.

SIMPLE LIGHT OUT-- OR CAMERA OFF--- BECAUSE OF A BLOWN FUSE.  THE FUSE FOR ONE OF THE PARKING LOT POLES IS IN THE SHOP( THE RED BUILDING)  THE OTHER ONE IS WIRED OFF THE LAUNDRY ( THRU THE T TENT.) I KNOW THAT--- BUT IT IS ONE OF THOSE DETAILS...

MY PROBLEM TOMORROW-- AND THIS IS NOT FOR THE FAINT AT HEART-- JEFF PLANS TO REDO THE DRAINAGE BEHIND THE BARN BY DIGGING OUT THE TOPSOIL, CHANGING TEH PITCH... DOESN'T SOUND LIKE MUCH-- BUT... THAT WILL INVOLVE THE AREA BY THE MANURE PILE.......... WHEN YOU HAVE A BIG ANIMAL DIE IN THE  "DEAD OF WINTER"  AND YOU HAVE TO  GET THEM BURIED....  THE ONLY PLACE YOU CAN DIG  IS UNDER A MANURE PILE.  .. THE OTHER FACT I KNOW IS   10 YEARS IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THE VARIOUS WORMS WHATEVER TO  DISPOSE OF A 1000 POUND HUNK OF MEAT.  I WILL H OLD MY BREATH-- BECAUSE IF THEY HIT THAT 1000 POUND LUNCH COUNTER I WILL NEED MORE THAN BREATH HOLDING...

YOU CAN SEE APROXIMATELY THAT AREA IF THE PUPPY HILL CAMERA SWINGS AROUND 179 DEGREES.
*********
I QUIT THIS FOR THE DAY-- FOR SOME REASON  THIS COMPUTER IS ASKING ME IF I WANT TO CONTINUE TYPING EVERY LINE OR SO... IT MUST NOT BE FEELING WELL  SO BEFORE IT DECIDES YOU All DO NOT NEED TO KNOW ALL THIS.. I WILL GET IT EMAILED...

  1. CARLENE, THE ISSUE WITH THE KAYAK IS THAT THERE IS A PLACE FOR DISABLED VETS TO GO KAYAKING AND TAKING THEIR SERVICE DOGS WITH THEM IS SOMETHING THEY DO. I HAVE A GOOD FRIEND FROM THE ARMY WHO LOST A LEG AND HE AND HIS SERVICE DOG GO KAYAKING ALL THE TIME. THOUGH THE DOG DOES STAY ON LAND. http://www.teamriverrunner.org/

  2. I don't know how a Great Dane would fit in a kayak. Maybe their back end sitting in the hole seat with their front legs on the top side. I would make sure he had a life vest on before going on any water craft.

  3. YOU ARE SO INVENTIVE CARLENE THAT I AM SURE YOU COULD FIGURE OUT HOW TO PLUG THAT SMALL HOLE IN THE CABINET.
    PERHAPS FOR A SMALL SAUCE PAN AND SMALL SKILLET YOU USE THE MOST, SMALL U HOOKS SCREWED INTO UNDERNEATH THE UPPER CABINETS YOU COULD HOOK THE PANS ON. OF COURSE THE PANS WOULD NEED A HOLE IN THE END OF HANDLE.
