feb 28 2015-- really
 bricks sold out ...  big words in our lives...  
thanks to everyone--it make planning new litters so much easier

and we better get on the ticket... 
feb does not have a 29  so tomorrow is a shatting day
 and scarlott really ought  to be moving in.

zena is moving out.... going with megan to florida..  nice dog
 i hope megan gives them the lecture....

 at first.....let them come to you
don't use your muscles to control them
danes are  not trained, they are educated...
 
and if megan comes thru the door to go to the airport  without my daughter  as driver. ... i will be hittin g the send button and will have to drive  her myself..  curlers and  all...

i have heard rumors that "everything is under control...  but there was a party last night at janine's -- for megan's birthday-- and one can never be sure.....
ok.. megan has come and gone  5am  for a 7:30 flight and janine is up drinking coffee-- so i guess they are fine...

bella's news article went round.. last i heard it was in ohio-- nice article-- now if we could just figure out what george has against staying  in the cafeteria for lunch..... he is doing exactly what peggity did about going into a ladies room--   she bolted out the door several timea a nd quickly lay down ... clearly telling her owner "i'll just wait  out here"  so finally   that is what her owner did...  they came to an agreement.

 george is not disobedient... he is telling us something about the cafteteria bothers him-- could be someone stepped on his tail  too often-- or the roof is about to collapse... he always said it was not his favorite place... but he could put up with it. to hasve bolted twice for the nurse's station and lay down  as if he was waiting for bella to finish... he is saying something.. we may have to  insist.. but at least we should try and figure out his objections...

the container is landed 
clutter will accumu;ate to fill available space....
i have not seen it yet, but last night during mail call, sheila delivered 25 rugs-- donated by home depot
there is something about  a sample sticker glued to the middle--  that  would never stop us from using them... apparently the stack is about 48" high- covering the back half  of the container..
i am pleased that it is sooooo cold-- because if there are any creepy crawlies, i think they die by freezing-- at least i am told bed bugs do..
home depot also told us they have a pallet of oops  paint-- sheila say it but could not cope last night-- i wll go look today-- she said somethign about  5 gal pails of stain.... well-- this house could use stain... i wonder what color it is.... a purple house woudl  be a bit much, but a nice dark brown....... all the other buildings are latex paint.... and then there is the container itself  which would need oil based... 
and latex can't be frozen-- so i don't know where to keep a pallet of paint  until we can use it..

here we go.. i wonder what fate has planned for the container..  the "steel grey"  has to go..  perfect timing for someone to donate paint... 
mine is not to question why....

now about the gloves situation  -- i don't think i went into this before..

  i needed gloves for handling wood with splinters-- so i went and bought a pair-- and did wear them- once--
next splintery project .. i needed to wear gloves--couldnt remember having bought the first pair- only that i  needed golves--  so i ordered a package of those leather/canvas working gloves- 12 to a package- and i wore a pair... once...
it was a cold fall-- i needed a pair of gloves-  thought i had some- but  not sure ---couldnt find any-- so i ordered some from farmtek-- couple packages witht he rubber dots for traction... and i wore a pair...
by now you can tell where this is going--  
when this last snow started--- i knew i had golves somewhere- but i had none when i needed to plow..
so i took a pair that were lying on theresas desk-- a blue fluffy pair-- and left them in the tractor behind the seat... so as long as i was driving the tractor, i had gloves... the rest of teh time.. no one had  gloves-- and i kept saying "there should be a box of hats and gloves by the front door so people could grab some..."
finally-- someone said " there is a box by the front door"   ..... outside..
and there was-- a huge box-- ? an easy bushel?? - under a drip and frozen solid-- dozens of hats and gloves totally unuseable in their current condition...
so my  "order".. last summer  about "put theses in a box by the front door" was heeded...  but the true3 message was not conveyed...  this concept is a huge probl;em around here..

we so carefully teach the dogs to "wait"  and "think"  with the can of dog food and the spoon...  how do you do it with people???

so  now we have a soggy mess on the fireplace --drying out--  the fact that they got wet was mary's fault...  she tried to get in the front door one day-- all 750 pounds of her- and in the process. pulled the porch away from  being attached to the  house...  consequently anyting on the front porch got dripped on,  until it was covered with a brown tarp- so we coudld not see what was there... hence the lost gloves...
what did  we learn?  probably nothing.. so we bash on...
