SEPT 24,2014
i know carol has the best of intentions when she told me to take my clothes off---(SHE MEANT TAKE THEM OFF THE TREADMILL WHERE I TOSS THEM REGULARLY)  AND USE THE DAMN
 THING.
 SHE IS JUST ONE MORE  IN A LONG LINE OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE ENCOURAGED ME TO WALK ON THAT THING-- OR RIDE ON A BICYCLE THAT DOES NOT GO ANYWHERE.. SOMEHOW IT IS AGAINST MY CORE PHILOSOPHY .
IF I AM TO ENGAGE IN FORCED WALKING  EXERCISE- THEN LET IT BE EMPTY THE SCRAP BASKETS..  I CAN NOT WASTE ALL THAT ENERGY WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT ..

I HAVE LOOKED AT THE LONG LINES OF PEOPLE PEDDLING THOSE DEVICES WITH ONE WHEEL AND THOUGHT  THERE LIES THE ANSWER TO THE ENERGY CRISIS....  I KNOW I AM NOT THE  FIRST TO THINK IF A KID WANTS TO SIT AND WATCH TV- OR PLAY ON A COMPUTER THEY SHOULD CREATE THE ENERGY USED TO RUN TH E THING.

SOMEBODY ONCE DID JUST THAT-- AND HE/SHE  GOT VERY LITTLE PUBLICITY  ABOUT IT--MAYBE 40 YEARS AGO-- IT SHOWED 2 SOUR FACED KIDS BEING INTERVIEWED ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO WATCH TV UNLESS THEY PEDALED THE BIKE WITH THE GENERATOR AND MADE THEIR OWN CURRENT.
IF A PARENT DID THAT NOW, SOMEONE WOULD REPORT IT TO THE DSS AND THEY WOULD BE IN TROUBLE FOR CHILD ABUSE.
JUST THINK-- LOWER ELECTRIC BILLS AND  CHILDREN WHO ARE  "FIT".

JUST THINK--- HOW OFTEN WE JUST DON'T.
THAT IS ONE GOOD TING ABOUT THIS DAILY DOGGIE--- IT FORCES ME TO  THINK AT LEAST ONCE A DAY.- HOWEVER BRIEFLY- 
AND IF IT FORCES ANYONE ELSE TO THINK, THEN I MUST CONTINUE THIS MADNESS WITH THE HOPES I SPARK SOMEONE ELSE TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM S OF THE WORLD- 
 LIKE CHEAP ENERGY FUELED BY FRENCH FRIES.
*************
CHAOS-- AN INTERESTING STUDY... SHE DOES KNOW WEEKENDS VS WEEKDAYS-- BECAUSE  SHE DOES WANDER AROUND WHINING AT THE DOOR ON WEEKENDS  - BUT DOES NOT WANT TO GO OUT IF I OPEN IT.  SHE IS LOOKING FOR EARLENE..   SHE CAN BE PLAYFUL AND HAPPY, BUT SHE IS LOOKING... SHE HAS ALSO BECOME ALOT MORE VOCAL  - STANDING IN FRONT OF ME GRUMBLING --- OBVIOUSLY EXPLAINING SOMETHING TO ME... AND I AM PRETTY SURE IT IS   WHERE IS EARLENE??
EARLENE AND PAUL SAID THEY WOULD COME BY AND TAKE HER FOR WALKS... AROUND THE  BABY SITTING CHORES... I HOPE THEY DO...

I THINK A TRIGGER MAY BE -- BUD-- BECAUSE HE WAS HERE WHEN EARLENE  WAS ON SUNDAYS  ... SO WHEN BUD GETS HERE CHAOS GETS ALL EXCITED  AND GREETS HIM- THEN GOES  TO WHININIG AT THE DOOR.... AND LOOKING AT ME.

AM I TRYING TO SLAP A GUILT TRIP???   YUP...
************
OPAL IS NOT QUITE AS BAD... 
 SHE NEVER HAS GOT TO TH E POINT ANTICIPATING THE ARRIVAL  BY MY SAYNG "SHEILA'S HERE."   SHE HAS TOTALLY UNDERSTOOD "I HAVE TO GO NOW"  BECAUSE HER HEAD AND TAIL DROP AND SHE JUST STAANDS WHEN SHEILA SAYS THAT.
******
WE HAVE TOO MANY VEHICLES---
THE COA VAN, THE CONVERSON  VAN AND MY CAR ( WHERE THE PAINT ALL MATCHES)  ARE PLENTY...  THE DURANGO IS PROBABLY JANINE'S ANYWAY--- THE OWNERSHIP HAS GONE BACK AND FORTH RANDOMLY...SHE NEEDS IT TO PULL THE HORSE TRAILER AROUND ONCE IN A WHILE.
THEN THERE IS THE  "WHITE VAN"  WITH IT'S NEW FRONT SHOCKS

PROBLEM BEING EXCEPT FOR MY TOYOTA, ALL THE OTHERS ARE 2002 DODGE VEHICLES THAT ARE PRETTY CONSTANTLY IN NEED OF REPAIR--- AND SHOULD ONLY BE DRIVEN "LOCALLY"  --- COUNTRY MOTORS ARE GREAT MECHANICS--   BUT TOO OFTEN  WE ARE DROPPING OFF ONE AND PICKING UP TH E LAST.
BUT THEY ARE ALL RUNNING RIGHT NOW... AND TIME TO BROOM OUT THE WHITE VAN AND GET JANINE TO CLAIM  THE DURANGO AS HER'S.

IF FOR NO REASON THAN TO MAKE 2 MORE PARKING PLACES.
*************
WILLIAM WAS HERE YESTERDAY AND MAYBE... JUST MAYBEEEE WE GOT 2 MORE PHOTO'S OUT OF THE WAY FOR THE CALENDAR--  THEN HE CAME IN THE HOUSE- TO DISCUSS A FEW OTHERS-- AND WE DID NOT REALIZE THE MIC WAS ON... SO SOME OF YOU HEARD ALL THE PLANS...
***
THOSE ORCAS ARE VERY CUTE--- BUT WILLIAM HAS COME TO REALIZE IN ANOTHER 2 DAYS THEY WILL DOUBLE INSIZE AND NOT BE AS CUTE... WELL... NEARLY....

*******
I DID GO WITH THE TRAILER AND PICK UP THE CHICKEN COOP FOR THE NEW SOCIALIZED CHICKENS THAT SOMEONE HAS GIVEN US.

TURNS OUT-- THEY HAD TEHSE CHICKENS IN A NEIGHBORHOOD KIND OF PLACE... NO ROOSTER... JUST HENS... AND SOMEONE IN T EH NEIGHBORHOOD CALLED ANIMAL CONTROL WHO DECIDED THEY NEEDED A PERMIT TO KEEP THEM-- AND IT WAS $1000..
SO WE HAVE THE HENS..  

WE/I ALSO HAVE ALOT OF OPINIONS ABOUT PEOPLE WHO FIND SOME WAY TO COMPLAIN TO AUTHORITIES AND  BULLY SOMEONE ELSE WITH SOME NONSENSE. 

IN THIS CASE... IT WAS A NEIGHBORHOOD OF 20 HOUSES  SURROUNDED BY DENSE WOODS... MOST OF THE HOUSES HAD METAL TRASH CANS WITHOUT LIDS-   AND I SAW A FEW BIRD FEEDERS.   HER CHICKENS WERE SURROUNDED BY 1/2 INCH "RABBIT WIRE"   AND FED IN DISHES---  BUT THE NEIGHBOR HAD HEARD THAT CHICKENS ATTRACT RATS  SO RATHER THAN PROVING IT WAS THE CHICKENS AND NOT TH E WOODS AND BIRD FEEDRS... SHE WAS FORCED TO GET RID OF HER CHICKENS BY THREATENING $1000 FINES.

BULLYING... THAT IS WHAT THAT WAS...

THE ULTIMATE IS-- THIS WAS A WHILE AGO--- SOMEONE A THE IPSWICH COUNTRY CLUB COMPLAINED ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEIR NEIGHBOR HAD PAINTED THEIR MAILBOX WITHAN UNAPPROVED COLOR...

BEFORE WE BOUGHT THESE 2 LOTS  WE LOOKED AT A HOUSE IN BOXFORD CENTER--- IT WAS  AN OLD FARMHOUSE AND BARN... BUT IN THE HISTORIC DISTRICT.... I COMMENTED THEN  THAT I COULD NOT PAINT MY HOUSE PURPLE WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF THE HISTORICAL SSOCIETY-- I REMEMBER USING PURPLE AS MY CHOICE COLOR-- AND HERE I AM WIHT A LOUDLY PAINTED PURPLE BARN...

  THE NEW CHICKENS ARE LOVELY , CLEAN AND SOCIALIZED-- THE NEW "COOP" S 6 SIDED-- SO IF WE CAN JUST GET IT TOGETHER BEFORE WE LOOSE THEM TO THE RACOON, WE WILL BE FORTUNATE.. I THINK/HOPE  DAVID WILL BE HERE TO DO THAT TODAY.

AND SO IT GOES...

  3. I think the Orcas are one of the most photogenic groups of pups. The others are in their own way but I think the markings on the Orcas make such striking photos as seen in Mark's photos. I don't care that they may double in size in a day or two. William Huber ought to at least give them a shot.
