sept 10 2014

WE ARE OFF TO A FLYING START WITH THE NEW CHICKEN BRICK BOARD... THANK HEAVENS !! 
 WE AVG 17,000 HITS A DAY ON OUR CAMERA EVEN IF 1/2 OF THEM ARE MINE AS I TRY AND KEEP ALL THE CAMERAS AND PUPS GOING STRAIGHT.... THAT IS STILL 8500 HITS... IF EACH BOUGHT A  $10  BRICK THAT WOULD BE  $85,000  .....A DAY...   SO I AM HOPING THAT TRYING FOR 2072 A MONTH IS NOT  TOTALY OUT OF THE QUESTION....  THERE ARE SO MANY OF YOU....

AND A BUNCH HAVE STARTED BUYING THEIR BIRTHDAY -- so i bought mine.   1001

****************
the freezer is in and   they said  would deliver today and they would put it together !!!!---

****************
that spirit stick parade  was wonderful   as i lined it up i though i wish i had suggested they show their badges- so i could recall who  was who-- and i find that was suggested !!  it was fun watching the names and faces together...

and teh camera op's did such a great job manuevering the camera-- so much better than i ever could...

i tried to identify the person who talked to me about playing the harp-- i woud like to keep her name on file..  i do have another harpist on file somewhere.. a student  in boston...

************
 there are a very few  cp's left-- and i am sorry to see them go  they are a big help--- even sittin with pups....... but i hear some will be back the end of th e month  to help
*-****
another 10 days and we can do an ultraq sound on opal-- to see where we stand  next...
*********
my pensive moment  for the day-- hopefully it will pass....

it is very difficult to listen to  people  who  don't ask questons or make suggestions, but who sit and lecture to a group on how successful they are at either dog training or money raising and implying how much better it would be if we  changed everything we do to their way.   i am hard headed enough to be able to  listen to that and not change a thing-- but it upsets  some of my volunteers to  think i have not thought  about  the different ideas... 

that concept goes along with the fact that  i live in fear of this adi group who are about to discend to re- accreditate us on the 5 year aniversary.
 these concepts always seem to involve someone trying to legistrate intelligence.  something that has historically never been possible.

a perfect example is the book "please don't eat the daisy" about a woman who gave her kids alot of instructions and forgot to tell them not to eat the daisy... so they did that..

you can not legistate everything.. i know adi tries.

there is one huge difference here-- i rely on some extremely intelligent people to figure out most things without micromanagment- 

like that spirit stick parade...   the entire concept was wonderful.
as was alot of the dogfest activities--- like lynne and renee's talk...or the skit no one practiced...  or marc's master of ceremony.... 

***** i hear a truck   
running...  ??? freezer????
