MARCH 15 2015
    (?sp?) I FEEL AS IF I SHOULD PUT THAT NOTATION AT THE BEGINNING OF EVERY DOGGIE DAILY   BECAUSE WHEN YOU COME RIGHT DOWN TO IT  ALL MY SPELLING IS APPARENTLY A CHALLANGE TO FOLKS FOR WHOM PERFECT SPELLING IS SOME SORT OF NIRVANA . 

LAST NIGHT AT MAILCALL SOMEONE ASKED WHY I MAJORED IN MATH/PHYSICS- BEDCAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE TO WRITE LONG PAPERS WHICH THE TEACHERS THEN SCRIBBLE ON IN RED INK WITH A TRY HARDER COMMENT.
I HAD AN ONGONG ARGUEMENT WITH TEH - THEN - DEAN OF COLBY COLLEGE - ABOUT ACCEPTING ONE'S LIMITATIONS AND CONCENTRATING ON ONE'S STREGNTHS...  AS THEY THOUGHT ANY COLLEGE GRAD OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO SPELL 500 WORDS THAT THEY HAD CHOSEN.  I PLAINLY COULD NOT-- AND I THINK THEY GRADUATED ME TO GET RID OF ME.
*************
YESTERDAY JANINE DROVE US TO GRANBY CONN TO LOOK OVER SOME HORSES WHICH SHE THOUGHT MIGHT HAVE ONCE  BEEN INVOLVED IN THE LOOP OF SLAUGHTER HORSES FROM THE PENNA AREA..  WITHOUT GETTIN G INTO ANY DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT TO DO WITH "EXTRA" HORSES PEOPLE CAN NO LONGER AFFORD TO FEED,  I HAD SEEN 2 HORSES WHICH I THOUGHT WOULD BE A BETTER ADDITION TO SDP THAN   FATSO.. A HUGE DRAFT PONY A RESCUE...- WHICH ONLY KNOWS HOW TO EAT...  APPARENTLY JANINE HAS FOUND A HOME FOR HIMWHICH MEANS  A FREE STALL- AND I MAY AS WELL FILL IT WITH SOME QUARTERHORSE  I LIKE BEFORE SHE FILLS IT WITH TALL SKINNY  THOROBREDS..

THE TWO I WANTED ONLINE-- ONE WAS SOLD-- THE OTHER LAME- SO WE LOOKED OVER THE BUNCH HE HAD.. AND SHE RODE 4 OR 5..  ONE LOOKIED COMFORTABLE EVEN IF HE WAS NOT QUITE THE CHUNK I WOULD PREFER... HE SEEMED WELL BROKE. AND DID NOT KICK AT BENTLEY WHOBUGGED HIM IN TESTING.
HE WILL ARRIVE NEXT WEEK... HIS NAME IS AND MAY STAY  "FORTY".
************
4 HOURS OF JANINE WAS VALUABLE---  NOT ONLY IS SHE A PHD/PROFESSOR OF DIGITAL STUFF OF SOME KIND,- ----SHE ALWAYS HAS PROBLEMS TO WHICH I CAN RELATE...

WHEN THAT SNOW STORM STARTED, SHE WAS  WORKING IN BOSTON THEY ANOUNCED  SUBWEY HAD QUIT--AND THERE WERE NO BUSSES.. SO SHE RAN FOR THE TRAIN-  NORTH STATION WAS PACKED--PEOPLE WERE BEGINNING TO FIGHT -  SO  WITH MY TRAINING, SHE LIFTED A CLIPBOARD OVER HER HEAD AND SAID "EXCUSE ME:" ALL THE WAY TO THE FRONT OF THE MOB... IN THE PROCESS A GUY HAD SOME VELCRO ON THE FRONT OF HIS JACKET WHICH KEPT GETTING STUCK TO  THE BACK OF HER COAT AS HE RECOGNIZED SHE WAS MAKING PROGRESS, HE STUCK WITH  HER....--  THE TRAIN GOT STOPPED  IN SALEM-- SHE AND HER NEW VELCRO FRIEND- AND ABOUT 30 OTHERS  DECIDED TO WALK THE  5 MILES UP THE TRACK TO THEIR CARS PARKED IN BEVERLY.

THIS IS POSTED ON FB...

Introducing Zena, the newest addition to the New Horizons Service Dog breeder program. Zena is a 7 
month old Great Dane, donated by the Service Dog Project, Ipswich, MA. SDP provides Great Danes for 
people with mobility problems. When Zena comes of age, she will be bred to a Lab, and the puppies will 
go   
 into the NHSD program. Thank you SDP for this lovely girl.

then -- again on facebook  ( I REALLY MUST FACE BOOKS-- I DO NOT LIKE THINGS GOING OUT ON FACEBOOK- WHICH  SOUND BAD  BUT JUST NEED SOME CORRECTION/EXPLANATION).

IT IS NOT TOO EXCITING... BUT....BACK A WEEK AGO I REPORTED  I HAD FOUND 2 CHECKS FOR BRICKS  WHICH LANDED IN THE BILL PAYING DRAWER INSTEAD OF THE FUN JUG..... AND WOULD ENTER THEM ON THE NEXT WALL  - WHICH BECASUE OF TEH  END OF MONTH  THEY WILL BE ON THE NEXT WALL.  THAT IS WHY THE PERSON'S NAME HAS NOT YET  BEEN SEEN  ON THE WALL--  BUT IS IN MY DRAWER YET TO BE ENTERED...

THE NEXST PROBLEM IS ... I SENT OUT THOSE "SHATUPON SUPPORTING" CARDS TO PEOPLE WHO HAD DONATED DEC JAN FEB-- 638 OF THEM ---- THIS PERSON- WHO SHOULD HAVE GOT ONE, DIDN'T.  I CAN SEND HER ONE... BUT  WILL I SEND OUT MORE???  I DUNNO
IT DEPENDS ON WHETHER I HAVE TIME TO FOOL AROUND WITH THE DATA FILES TO SEE WHO  ALREADY GOT ONE ETC...  PLEASE  DON'T SEND ME EMAILS TELLING ME HOW TO DO IT..  I KNOW HOW...  I JUST HAVE A FEW OTHER TINGS TO SOLVE FIRST... AND PRINTING AND LAMINATING  THOSE TOOK A COUPLE DAYS...  WHICH I HAD AS WE SAT AROUND WAITIG FOR SCARLOTT TO GO INTO LABOR... I AM BUSIER NOW...

  1. I got my Shatupon Society Supporting Member card yesterday, and it made my whole week! Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. The laminated card and handwritten thank you note were super. Yeah it means I'm a loser, but I'm really a winner to be part of this great organization. THANKS! :o)

  2. Don't think of it as being a loser, think of it as being a runner-up with the greatest consolation prize ever: you helped make this new litter of puppies possible. Those adorable puppy squeaks, pink toesies, and wiggly tails are for YOU! :)

  3. I thank you so very much for my card in the mail. It was a big and very happy surprise. I saw on cam all the work you all did putting them all together for the mailing and just wanted you to know how much it was appreciated especially at such a busy and stressful time for you all with Scarlot and the pups on the way. I watched her birth the pups from begging to end and also the waiting before so was up and awake for a very long time and it sure was worth it!!! Congrats to Scarlet and her Starlets and to all at SDP!! Well done BRAVO!!!
