30 days hath.... gone awfully quickly
in my mind's eye i had visions of all these renovations etc done by august-- and that just might happen
especially if david keeps going on the floor in the new kennel area.. he got the floor done in steve meat shack--- it still needs a perfect name--- and a coat of paint.
name the shack???
i will solve the freezer question today-- we are ready--
i got no where with yesterday's projects.. so we try again today
there were alot of young kids here for stew-- and no one adhered to my rule of 5 feet from a 5 year old and 3 feet from a 3 year old ---- there were no accidents-- but i was nervous- and there were so amny kids here i did not know who belonged to who... happily they all seemed to take the correct ones home with them..
i kept thinking about one of my relatives who used to say "that is why you have your kids when you are young" at appropriate moments... maybe i should have a rule that families that bring kids to stew wear color coded shirts so i can figure out who is who.
we did get a "look" at several of the applicants we needed to see.
and a good thing that was... i was sure one on the list was an older man with parkinsons and he was a
young guy with war injury.
tess was here with sandy-- doing very well-- could be a perfect solution--- she as very little muscle tone in her back legs-- but i think she will get a litle more exercise at sandy's where the grassy area is 5 feet from her door.
and we have acquired another deaf family-- both parents deaf with 2 hearing high school kids needing community serv.
it is almost one of those "why now? who sent them here?" because with the problem of having to develop 2 hearing dogs-- i will need to be able o sign with the new owners-- so i will get practice..
interestingly---- used to be you needed good grades for college-- then you needed good grades and money--- now y ou have to add community service in order to stand out from the crowd... i kind of knew that when gwen applied to kenyon-- she could add the "project hope circus" to her application. she later found out they noticed that....
good college kenyon... i am told harvard is the kenyon of the east .
lu came and got the old tractor-- i thought bud was going to cry when it left--- it has been such a relic around here... my logic?.... at any moment it could need $1000 repair which we would not do because we have the "new" tractor. that would leave us with a lump of iron rusting in the back---- it would cost us to get rid of it. i have been there-- with both an old backhoe and a cabbose.
it is working fine-- and if it does develop a $1000 problem-- it will be well worth it for them to fix it.
also i owe lu a few--- she sponsored me in adi-- even tho she is a golden retriever type.
colleen 2 is back from florida---reporting sheila is just sitting around beaches and pools-- i hope her mind did not stagnate..
colleen will be helping with the finances. she offered to fight with quicken --- as long as we do not download from the bank-- that intruduces some very creative bookkeeping errors--- like duplicating a bunch of w/d checks that were paid electronically by the bank -- raises he// with the balance-- verizon and american express are only 2 who do that. quicken download also adds $285 to a deposit now and again,
colleen is one of those "to the penny" types... if allowed to do it's own thing with downloads, quicken can be $20000 off-- it will be an interesting battle... set for tuesday night.
and then there are problems ---like the board of directors-- we need to trim that up... historically it has been any group sanding around here looking for a free meal when i get the notice from the country club that i need to eat $800 worth of food in the next week or they will charge me anyway.
time to take that stuff seriously... i hope theresa will stay on.
