--W/R/T TRIVIA....HOW MANY WIRE CONNECTIONS????YOU FOLK JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND . I CHECKED WITH SHEILA ONLY TWO PEOPLE HAD A NUMBR HIGHER THAN THE NUMBER TO GET THE SIGNAL OUT OF THIS BUILDING... FROM HERE IT GOES TO THE T TENT THEN TO THE BUNCH OF BLACK BOX STUFF IN KENNEL 10 THEN TO THE FEED ROOM AND THEN OUT TO THE WORLD.... SO I THINK WE SHOULD TAKE NEW GUESSES... THIS TIME I WILL GIVE YOU A CLUE... SOUND AND PICTURE OUT OF HERE TOOK 25 CONNECTIONS. SO TRY AGAIN....

AS I SIT HERE--THE WIRELESS -- FROM WALL TO BLACK BOX TO A WIRE WITH A SPLIT CONNECTION -TO   THE CAMERA TO ANOTHER BLACK BOX CONNECTED TO THE WALL AND THEN THE WIRE WHICH GOES  THRU THE CELLAR TO THE BACK ROOM WHERE A  surge strip  IS COMPLETELY FULL OF CONNECTIONS TO  TO BOXES WHICH MAKE IT WIRELESS AND SEND IT TO THE T TENT.

ALL THIS  SO WHEN  THE CAMERA GOES OFF LINE-- YOU WILL HAVE AN APPRECIATION OF ME SITTING HERE WITH A VIRTUAL BOWL OF SPAGHETTI, WITH TIM IN AFRICA SAYING "IT SOUNDS LIKE THE  POE CONNECTION   IS NOT GETTING THRU TO THE RYT."

THE ONLY THING I HAVE LEARNED IS POE IS POWER OVER THE EITERNET WHICH MEANS YOU DON'T PLUG IT IN TO THE WALL.   MY EDUCATION STOPS THERE...

 BUT I CAN COUNT THE WIRES---  I CONSIDERED COLOR CODING THE CONNECTIONS  BUT THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH CODES OF COLOR...

****************
MEGAN IS STILL SICK---  

TRACY CAN'T FILL IN TIL AFTER SHE GETS HER HUSBAND INTO THE HOSPITAL IN BOSTON FOR SOMETHING TO BE OPERATED ON.. MAYBE SHOULDER???.. 

WE SHOULD SURVIVE-- MOLLY..MARIA...KATI..STEVE(CHARLIE) MARY  CP STILL HERE...  VOLUNTEERS WELCOME....

 AND THE  NUTT  HOUSE CONCRETE DRIETH--- IT NEEDS TO "CURE " FOR A COUPLE WEEKS BEFORE WE CAN COAT IT WITH THIE SUPER STUFF--- I AM THINKING MAYBE TEH NUTT HOUSE MIGHT HAVE TO HAVE  THE HOME DEPOT GARAGE FLOOR STUFF JUST TO GET US THRU--- 

THE CHAIN LINK  FOR THE NEW AREA IS DUE TO BE DONE TODAY-- WHICH MEANS THE  TRAILER MUST GO FOR A DUMP RUN BEFORE NOON..

AND THE SCALE IN BURLINGTON IS READY TO BE PICKED UP/

LOGISTICS....

Whilst in the shower I was reflecting on my day yesterday and I realized that perhaps, sometimes, I may now take the incredible abilities of Ms. Pants for granted. Shame on me. I think it's just she's always there, always doing her job, always my partner so much so that it's become so seamless at times. Again, shame on me.

Yesterday, we went downtown into Boston and while in the hospital, waiting for an elevator we encountered a child who was non-verbal and obviously extremely agitated. Wouldn't you be if you couldn't express yourself and were probably scared? Anyway, she was screaming constantly like a siren. The mother looked at me and I could tell she was wondering how Willow was going to react as was I quite frankly. I could also tell she was thinking about taking another elevator. As was I but I thought no, Wil's can do this and the mother has enough to deal with. We both got on. Willow took her place and it was just another elevator ride with a child screaming non-stop. We got off and I never gave it another thought. When we left the hospital I was dying for a cup of coffee. If didn't occur to me that I would have to carry the coffee and walk, navigating crowded halls and sidewalks, busy streets with traffic and ambulances and get to my car. This is where I take her for granted. Before her, I wouldn't have even walked that without the coffee. We got to the car and she got her usual water and rub down but as I drank my coffee I didn't realize what had just happened.
 

Until I was in the shower.....

Sorry Wil's, I do so Love and appreciate you! ~ Mom

  1. WOW - that's all I can about Ms Pants. Love getting these updates and see how wonderfully trained these dogs are and how much they love having a "job". And you, Ms. Carlene, a WOW to you too with all the wires and connections and on and on. I have an IT department to keep me functioning (thank goodness). Once again, I stand in amazement at all that you accomplish. Thanks for another glimpse into the life at Crazy Acres.

  2. I am 63 with sight and nerve problems that make me unsteady at times, so I identify with your goal and purpose. I have a dear friend, Heidi, who is a 12 yr old dane. She started life as a puppy mill breeder chained to the support of a carport and living on concrete year round, with back to back pregnancies. She was rescued with her litter at 3 1/2. She is a very intuitive lady! She live with her mom. Sue, who is a fellow quilter. When I'm visiting Heidi stays close to me. She goes down the stairs in front of me, and up the stairs behind me. If I'm faltering on the way up she comes up beside me so I can grab her collar. She has not been trained, she just 'knows' when I need help. I love her dearly and. I believe she loves me, too. I am so happy you have chosen to do this work! And I believe you have chosen the best breed of dog. I have told my friends, many on the quilting board which is an international site. I have no clue how many wire connections you have, but just want you to know you've made millions more heart connections.
