MARCH 1 2015

ANOTHER SELL OUT  SHATUPON  SUNDAY--

WE REALLY APPRECIATE THE SUPPORT -- AND IT MAKES FOR EASIER PLANNING OF PUPPIES..
. LET ME REPHRASE THAT----  IT MAKES FOR POSSIBLE PLANNING OF PUPS

I AM SURE MOST OF YOU HAVE SEEN ONE OF THE MANY NEWS SHOTS OF BELLA AND GEORGE...
IF WE HAD ONLY ONE OF THOSE A YEAR , WOUL D IT NOT BE WORTH THE EFFORT?..
AND WE HAD 20 ISH IN 2014..   WE ARE MAKING A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN MANY LIVES, 
AND THERE ARE MANY VOLUNTEERS AROUND HERE WHO ARE PROUD OF THEIR WEIGHT LOSS...  
 UNFORTUNATELY   I AM NOT ONE OF THEM.

I AM MORE OF THE "A SUCCESSFUL DIET IS ONE WHERE YOU DO NOT GAIN WEIGHT"

BCK TO SCARLOTT'S ARRIVAL...
TO THAT END THIS WILL BE FURNATURE MOVING SUNDAY-- 
SMACKS OPF A BUSY DAY.. AND ...

*****
THO IT AIN'T MUCH, WE DO HAVE ENOUGH SNOW ON THE FORECAST TO MAKE FOR SLIPPERY EVENING TRAVEL..
3 TO 5 INCHES..
********
I CAN NOT BELIEVE TH E ROOF HAS NOT SPLIT IN 1/2 ON MANY HOMES AROUND..
. FOR ALL YOU SOUTHERNERS, MOST HOUSES HERE HAVE THE LAST 18 INCHES OF ROOF  A WAD OF ICE 
MAYBE 6-8 INCHES THICK...  WITH VARYING INDIVIDUAL DESIGNS... IN OUR CASE MY AIR CONDITIONER IS TOTALLY INVISABLE FOR THE 
STALAGMITES AND STALAGTITES (  ANOTHER BINARY THING I NEVER WILL KEEP STRAIGHT...

WE DID SEE A 18 INCH "POST" OF ICE FROM GROUND TO  ROOF ON A TOWN BUILDING.. 
YOU FOLK FROM OUT OF NEW ENGLAND JUST DON'T REALIZE.
WHEN IR MELTS----- OH BOYS..NEW MEANING TO "MELTDOWN."..
********
BIGGEST EXCITEMENT IS THE DISCOVERY THAT THE SEMI WAXED/PLASTICIZED DOG FOOD BAGS ARE PERFECT SLEDS...
SO I WANT TO COLLECT A BUNCH AND HAVE ANY KIDS HERE THIS AFTERNOON ( WHEN  MARK IS HERE) GO SLIDING
I THINK PURINA WOULD LOVE  THAT SHOT...
*****

 TEH PAINT FROM HOME DEPOT IS FIRST CLASS PAINT--- APPARENTLYU   ALOT OF OOPS COMES FROM PEOPLE NOT COMING BACK TO PICK IT UP, SO TEH COLORS I HAE SEEN SO FAR ARE VERY RESPECTABLE.... AND IF THOSE 5 GAL BUCKETS OF STAIN ARE DARK BROWN, IT WILL B ONE MORE OFO THOSE  "GOLDIE"  ( GHOST OF TEH LEFT HAND DRAWER) EPISODES...   THE HOUSE NEEDS PAINTING/STAINING  -- AT THE RATE VERY PEQUILIAR THIGS HAPPEN AROUND HERE-- TOSE 15 GALLONS  JUST MIGHT BE WHAT WE NEED... IT IS IN SHRINK WRAP-- PLUS ALOT IS LATEX - NEEDS TO BE KEPT OUT OF "FREEEZING"  SO THE MANAGER OFFERED TO PUT IT UP HIG H WITH A FORK LIFT.. TIL WE ARE READY...  BUT IT IS A PALLET FULL

AS FOR THE GOLDIE EPISODES... FOR THE NEWCOMMERS...   I HAD A DREADFUL STENCH  START VERY ABRUPTLY IN MY DESK DRAWER-- WHICH  IN SPITE OF SCRUBBING WITH EVERYTHING FROM SOAP TO ANNESETTE IT WAS AWFUL-- THEN  ONE DAY.. IT WAS GONE .. NEVER TO REAP[PEAR... YET.
COUPLED WITH THAT IS THE FACT THAT SO MANY TIMES  WHAT WE NEED/WISH FOR JUST APPEARS  TOTALLY OUT OF NO WHERE...SOMEONE COULD KEEP A LIST.
SNEAKERS-- MY SIZE BRAND NEW  IN THE BOX  THE SAME DAY I COULD NO LONGER FIND A RIGHT AND LEFT OF THE SAME DESIGN.. 

 THERE HAE BEEN DOZENS... THE MOST SPECTACULAR  WAS THE DAY I WAS PLANNING FOR A GROUP OF KIDS TO BE HERE AND I ASKED EVERYONE TO FIND MARY'S OLD SMALL FRY PAN THAT WE LET KIDS USE TO FEED THE DONKEYS...  
THEY COULD NOT FIND IT... THEN IN MAIL CALL THAT NIGHT I OPENED A BOX THAT HAD 2 OF THE EXACT FRY PANS.. IN PURPLE !!
THEY HAVE TOI HAVE BEEN MAILED BEFORE I EVEN  KNEW THE KIDS WERE COMING..

I HAVE NEVER HAD ANYONE -- BEFORE OR SINCE-- SEND ME FRY PANS..  IT IS NOT A COMMONE  GIFTED ITEM..--
WHY THAT DAY?

THERE HAVE BEEN MANY...  AND THE PALLET  CONTAINING THOSE 5 GAL PAILS OF STAIN-- COULD BE JUST ONE MORE
************
I THOUGHT MAYBE TODAY WE WOULD BE OVER THE HUMP[ OF  AWFUL TEMP....
 BUT NO... GET OUT THE HAIRDRYER AND THAW OUT THE  PIPES TO GET SOME COFFEE..
IT HAS BECOME ROUTINE--
I AM NOT SURE EXACTLY WHERE --
 BUT IF ICE FLOATS ON WATER... WOULD THE ICE BLOCK BE TOWARD THE TOP OIF A VERTICAL  PIPE?

IT TAKES LESS THAN 5 MIN OF HAIR BLOWER TO UNDO IT...

THAT IS WHY THE DOOR UNDER THE SINK IS OPEN....-- YOU CAMERA PEOPLE COULD REMIND OVERNIGHTERS TO LEE\AVE THAT OPEN.

DOESN'T THAT MAKE SENSE.?. A PHONE CALL FROM NORWAY  TELLING PAM TO LEAVE THE SINK DOOR OPEN
BUT IT DOES MAKE SENSE-- THAT IS WHY THIS IS CRAZY ACRES...

*************
Just wanted to let you know Zena is doing ok. She is restless, and keeps looking for Megan. She ate a big bowl of food, but still hasn't done her business. She keeps going to the front door, and I take her out, but she just looks around. I thought taking her for a walk with Savvy would get her to go, but it didn't. I will try again in about half an hour. She is sticking close to me, In fact, I can't move without tripping on her. She should settle down in a couple of days. Thank you again for such a beautiful dog. Etta

I REPLIED -- GET USED TO TRIPPING.. DANES ARE LIKE THAT...
