jan 25 2015
I USE THE WEATHER CHANNEL WITHOUT SOUND AS MY NIGHT LIGHT-- SO THIS MORNING I WOKE UP TO A BUNCH OF RED ON IT...THAT MEANS TROUBLE.... AND BY THE TIME I FOUND MY GLASSES IT WAS USING THE ZZZZZ WORD WITH 18 TO 24 INCHES OF SNOW...  WHICH WE CAN MANAGE--  THE PART THAT BECOMES A REAL CHALLANGE IS  THE WORD "BLOWING"  NOW THAT IS A DIFFERENT STORY--- THAT CAN BE 6' DRIFTS EXACTLY WHERE WE DON'T NEED THEM-- AND WHERE THE TRACTOR CAN NOT REACH-- 6 FOOT DRIFT IN FRONT OF THE DOOR ISW NO PROBLEM-- I WILL GET THERE EVENTUALLY WITH THE BUCKET... NOW PILE THAT 6 FOOT IN AMONG THE CHAIN LINK AND WE HAVE A WHOLE NEW PROBLEM.

STEVE HAD THE SNOW BLOWER GOING GREAT GUNS YESTERDAY WITH OUR MEASLY 6"--- IT IS A BIG SNOWBLOWER- BUT IS NO MATCH FOR MOMMY NATURES ABILITY TOP BLOW SNOW .... I Have SEEN DRIFTS SO TALL THAT THE SNOWBLOWER  COULD CARVE A TUNNEL THRU AND OUT THE OTHER SIDE.... IF ONLY  YOU COULD DIRECT THE BLOWING PART.

SOOOOOO... I AM ENCOURAGING THE  PP's (PHYSICALLY PHIT) TO CONSIDER HAVING A SLUMBER PARTY OVERNIGHT MONDAY NIGHT..  MY USUAL PLAN IS TO GET OUT AND PLOW EVERY 4-6 INCHES AND TRTY AND KEEP US OPEN FROM STREET TO BARN--- BUT THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE PARKING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STORM---  IT WORKS BETTER IF PEOPLE AR PARKED AHEAD OF TIME-- AND WE GET THRU THE EMERGENCY PART--  THEN I CAN DIG OUT ANY CAR THAT NEEDS TO BE DUG-- ESPECIALLY IF YOU BACK IN....   THAT WILL AVOID 3 POINT TURNING IN PILES OF SNOW.

AND I HAVE TO CONFESS-- THE TRACTOR  CAB IS SO  HEATED I HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO REMOVE AN OUTER LAYER...-- AND WITH THE BACKHOE STILL ON IT, IT IS TOUGH TO GET IT STUCK... I COULD.... BUT USUALLY I CAN  PICK UP THE WHOLE TRACTOR WITH THE BACKHOE-- AND MOVE IT AROUND ENOUGH TO GET OUT OF  THE MESSES I CAN GET INTO..

I REALLY NEED SOMEONE HERE TO KEEP THEIR EYE ON ME IN CASE  I HAVE ANY TRACTOR PROBLEMS... IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO WALK TO THE  HOUSE / BARN  IN A FOOT OF SNOW-- I AM SO USED TO OLD MACHINERY BREAKING DOWN THAT I AM SCARED... THIS TRACOTR IS NEW LAST YEAR - AND SHOULD BE FINE... BUT MURPHY'S LAW IS MURPHY'S LAW... AND I NEED PEOPLE HERE BEFORE I EVEN GO OUT..  

AND THEN THERE IS TRACI (ADAMS)  DUE TO FLY OUT TUESDAY NOON---   THAT JUST AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN UNLES THE FORCASTERS ARE ALL WRONG.-- BESIDES -- WE CAN'T PART WITH HER JUST NOW. SO I DON'T KNOW THE RESOLUTOIN OF THAT.

THEN... THE BELLA/GEORGE  PROJECT.... MEGAN IS PLANNING TO GO TO SCHOOL WITH THEM ON MONDAY-- AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE CAN GET THERE AND COME HERE BEFORE IT GETS TOO BAD.. YOU ONLY NEED ONE TRACTOR TRAILER SLIDING AROUND 128 TO REALLY GUM UP THE WORKS...  I WAS DELIGHTED TO SEE THE VIDEO OF GEORGE AND BELLA OUT PLAYING IN THE SNOW...  I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO HAVE TH E PRINCIPAL ASK BELLA'S MOTHER TO COME GET GEORGE.  NOT BEHAVING?  HE DOESN'T SIT - NONE OF THE BALANCE DOGS DO--- AND IF YOU ASK HIM TO LIE DOWN ON A COLD FLOOR-- HE MIGHT SAY NO AND JUST STAND THERE.. NOW START PUTTING PRESSURE ON BELLA AND ANYTHING COULD  HAVE HAPPENED.  

I CAN SEE IN GEORGE'S HEAD  " IF YOU ARE MISERABLE GOING TO THAT BUILDING, THEN JUST SIMPLY  LETS GO TO ANOTHER"  

THE WORDS "HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT" COME TO MIND.    I FELT IT- AND I AM OLD ENOUGH TO DEAL... A KID WOULD NOT  BE SO HARDENED. 
I WAS VERY GLAD TO SEE THE VIDEO OF GEORGE AND BELLA PLAYING IN THE SNOW...

SO BACK TO THE BLIZZARD-- PEOPLE ARE BEGINNING TO RESPOND TO PAM'S REQUEST FOR HELP ON MONDAY NIGHT .. WHICH WILL PROBABLY BE TUESDAY NIGHT ALSO-- DEPENDING  ON TIMING..

 WE CAN  USE UP ALL THE FOOD IN THE FREEZER.
WHICH INVOLVES 2 BIG THINGS OF ICE CREAM FROM BEN AND JERRY'S ( AFTER 2 HOURS  OF PRE-THAWING TIME)

NEW TOY IDEA
WE ARE WONDERING HOW LONG MAIL TAKES- AND IF IT TAKES 7 DAYS  CROSS COUNTRY,, WHAT DOES THE  POST OFFICE DO WITH THE BACKUP AND WOULDN'T IT BE CHEAPER TO MOVE IT OUT QUICKER??
SO IF YOU ARE MAILING STUFF HERE, WOULD YOU PLEASE PUT YOUT MAILING DATE ON THE BACK OF THE ENVELOPE..
JUST FOR FUN.

IN CLEANING OUT THE CELLAR OF UNWANTED PAPER, I CAME TO THE TRANSCRIPT OF THE TRIAL IN BENNINGTON WASHINGTON WHERE A CHILD WAS KILLED BY WRAPPING HIS HAND IN A PIECE OF CLOTHESLINE AND THE DONKEY WALKED OFF BANGING HIS HEAD ON A CURB...   
I KNOW WE HAVE SOME CP'S IN BENNINGTON... ANYONE REMEMBER THAT CASE?? LIKE ? 2003 MAYBE???
********

AND THEN ARIOT BEATING KIARA--- I DON'T THINK SO-- SOMEONE TAPED 2 EPISODES... AND I WATCHED THEM

THank YOU-- MAKES IT EASY FOR ME TO CHECK--DOGS HAVE A CODE-- YOU DON'T MAKE THE OTHER DOG YELP WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING BECAUSE WHENB THEY YELP THEY QUIT OLAYING AND THE GAMNE IS OVER...-- AND THE BITTEEE HOVERS AND SNAPS AT THE  BITTOR..  KIARA IS STILL IN  NORMAL ATTACK MODE-- I SEE NO  SCARED HOVER... SO I PASS ON THIS ONE...  LOOKS NORMAL.

 I HAVE HEARD ABOUT ONE SERIOUS SNAP OVER A KONG... SO WE TOOK THEM OUT... YOU CAN NOT GIVE ONE TO EACH-- THE DOMINANT GETS BOTH.

priya
Priya has changed my life! Once I put her vest on, she's all business and does not waiver.  She immediatly senses when I might need her and has stopped me from falling so many times.  Recently I started to slide down a gravel hill and she threw herself right in front of me to stop me.  She is unbelievable.  Even at home, when she is not in Service Dog mode, she comes running if she ever sees me stumble or fall.
Priya is so well behaved and quiet.  When we go out to dinner, she sits under the table and doesn't move or make a sound.  Often, when we get up to leave, people are shocked to see her becuase they had no idea she was there.  It's a big surprise because she is just so good, and so quiEt.
