MORE SNOW? IT IS A BAD THING TO WAQKE UP TO MY "WEATHER CHANNEL WITH NO SOUND" AND SEE RED WITH BLURRY WORDS.... I CAN'T FIND MY GLASSES FOR THE FIRST 20 MINUTES OF CONSCIOUS BEHAVIOR-- AND THEN I SEE THE INDIVIDUAL LISTINGS FRIDAY NIGHT 2"--( BIG DEAL?? !!) SAT MORNING 2" SAT AFTERNOON 3" , SAT NIGHT 2" AND THEN .. THE BIGGIE SUNDAY MORNING Rain..
on top of the 30 +9 inches in the parking lot??? then i am sure the whole mess will freeze---
now if you consider all my nutty professor stuff with the siphon hoses... "water seeks it's own level" i.e. a very flat surface frozen smacks of a skating rink--- for cars???
or the most dangerous thing around here-- a happy dane running toward you on the glare ice.. it is called human bowling-- and the humans are the pins....
the only thing you can do is to get down on all 4's--- after which it is tough to get on your feet again...
so camera people... don't bother asking why we are crawl;ing around on our hands an d knees in that parking lot.... it is dangerous to do otherwise. been there done that...
laura's school got called off again-- apparently the sidewalks in hamilton are not yet plowed---i had to ask.... how many kids now walk to school?? and she said.. in hamilton you get to ride the bus if you live over 2 miles from school.. i am of the generation that walked 12 miles to school every day -- in the rain , sleet and snow... UP HILL BOTH WAYS.
the difference now adays is these kids are saddled with a pack of books that weigh twice what they weigh.. i think they weigh kids down with them to expend some of the energy that new england kids in the 1700's spent rolling rocks into stone walls.
i keep thinking - some of these kids who get into trouble would have a dose of realizm if they had to build stone walls--- "here is a pile of rocks-- you can not have your drivers license til you build 20 feet of stone walls-- and if it is a DUI then 50 feet." there would be no way to cheat out of it-- would n't cost a fortune to keep them locked up... no reducing sentences ..no parents helping...
every school in new england should have a 3' high stone wall surrounding it...all done by students. How much trouble could a kid get into . trying to throw 100 pound boulders around.
a few pinched /blue and broken fingers-- sorry-- be more careful...no sympathy.-- put 2 stakes in the ground and when you are done you are done. back in the 1700's i am sure there was no emergency room with a sympathetic nurse and ice packs for a pinched finger.
rolling one rock toward another you would learn about things like mass and momentum.
somewhere on line there is a huge ferryboat gone wrong and sliding up on shore pushing everything out of it's way...mass and momentum...
bonnie was here yesterday ( dvm retired) and had a look at chaos eye... we have a dilemma
her weight vs anesthesia vs the bump in her eye ( now with an ulcer). she was going home to look up the posibilities... we may not be able to wait for her to loose 15 pounds.. weight...
meanwhile scarlott who was vomiting 2 days ago was fine yesterday, happily eating peeing pooping-- that is called fine.
GO GET 'EM LYNNE
I posted the following on FaceBook and I wanted you to see it as well. It happened on Monday while preparing for the storm so of course, the store was crazy. I have since spoken with ACO and the store. Our ACO is fantastic and if I can find out who the woman is they will go speak to her. The store has not been as responsive as I’d like but I’m going to give them another day and then go in there and see if a “face to face” doesn’t result in a more “effusive” response. And yes, Willow is fine thank god!
I’ll keep you posted, Lynne
To the woman who's dog tried to attack Willow in O'Connor's Hardware in Billerica yesterday....
First, the fact that your dog DRAGGED you across the store to get to her CLEARLY demonstrated you DID NOT have control of your dog. It also clearly demonstrated that YOUR DOG WAS/IS NOT TRAINED and has NO business being in PUBLIC!
Second, it is ILLEGAL to interfere with the work of a Service Dog AND to INJURE a Service Dog comes with stiff penalties and liabilities. You would also be liable for the injury to ME!!
The final INSULT was your total obnoxious response to my screaming "control your dog" "stop" and finally, "that fu*#^ing dog DOES NOT BELONG IN PUBLIC!" Your response? "She's fine, I take her everywhere." NO, she IS NOT FINE! When a dog drags it's owner across a store, teeth bared, growling and barking toward a Service Dog and it's Handler, THAT IS NOT FINE! The only thing that prevented disaster was I saw it coming, I was braced on the carts, Willow is exceptionally trained and I have 30 + years training dogs and knew what to do. And even with all of that, I was scared to death and left shaking like a leaf.
You ma'am, need a reality check. And consider yourself placed on notice. If I see you and your dog in public again, I am calling ACO and reporting you and the dog as a dangerous animal.
p.s... aco- animal control officer-- ipswich has a great one-- not always the case in alot of towns
