VENTING FRIDAY---   SO HERE GOES...

LET ME SAY UP FRONT THAT I LOVE HAVING ALL KINDS OF CAMERA PEOPLE COME AND PARTICIPATE IN  CRAZY ACRES.  WITHOUT THEM LIFE WOULD BE VERY DULL--- (AND SDP  WOULD HAVE TO  HIRE 3 MORE PEOPLE.) TO BE SPECIFIC 98% OF TEH PEOPLE ARE TERRIFFIC AND FIT IN BEAUTIFULLY...

THAT LEAVES 2%

SO HERE IS 1.5%------PERFECT EXAMPLE TODAY----
MEGAN ASKED ME TO BE SURE NO ONE PUTS THE BLACK PUPS ON A LEASH  TODAY OR OVER TEH WEEKEND...
FACT----  I KNOW WHAT SHE IS TALKING ABOUT...  I  DO NOT HAVE TIME TO GO INTO GREAT DETAIL WITH  TEH GENERAL POPULATION  EXCEPT TO SAY  THEY ARE AT A VERY  DELICATE POINT IN THIER LEARNING AND DISRUPTING IT WOULD BE HARMFUL TO THIER EDUCATION.
THAT MEANS MY JOB TODAY IS TO   STOP EVERY PERSON  NEAR THOSE PUPS AND TELL THEM NOT TO PUT A LEASH ON THEM.

? CASE CLOSED?-- 
NOT REALLY-- BECAUSE THERE ARE A VERY FEW WHO  WANT TO DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES WHAT THE RULES ARE. 

IT TOOK ME OVER A YEAR TO TEACH MEGAN HOW TO WALK A DOG  ON A LEASH, AND SHE IS A VERY BRIGHT PERSON.  THERE IS NO WAY IF YOU ARE HERE FOR A COUPLE  DAYS OR WEEKS  THAT YOU  CAN WATCH HER AND DECIDE YOU CAN DO THAT. 
WITHIN THE PAST MONTH I HAD SOME WOMAN SAY TO ME "I KNOW ALL ABOUT DOGS, I HAD A DOG ONCE"-  WITH THAT MENTALITY I AM NOT EVEN GOING TO TRY TO EXPLAIN... I HAD TO TELL HER....BETTER SHE JUST  NOT COME HERE.  
** 
THAT  CONCEPT PERTAINS TO MANY RULES WE  HAVE AROUND HERE-- WHETHER IT IS THE SPEED AT WHICH THE GOLF CARTS OR CARS  ARE DRIVEN... ... PICKING UP PUPPIES... FEEDING COOKIES... RUNNING AROUND.....PUTTING DOGS BACK INTO KENNELS.. USING INTERNET--SMOKING ANYWHERE BUT THE SMOKING "DEN", COUNTING TESTICLES BEFORE MIXING DOGS... ... THIS IS NOT MICROMANAGING... IT IS JUST LOOKING OUT FOR THE HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF THE DOGS BY RUNNING A TIDY SHIP..

 WHERE IT GETS TOUCHY IS WHEN AFTER I HAVE SAID NO, SOMEONE FIGURES THEY KNOW BETTER AND JUST DO IT ON THEIR OWN WHEN I AM NOT LOOKING.   I JUST HAVE NO TIME OR INCLINATION TO DEAL WITH THAT KIND OF THINKING... AND WILL INSIST PEOPLE GO SOMEWHERE  ELSE TO  DO THEIR THING.  I AM JUST PROTECTING OUR DOGS TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY.
AND PROTECTING THE  ATMOSPHERE OF  HARD WORK THAT IS ENJOYABLE  AT THE  SAME TIME. ... I DON'T HAVE ANY PERSONAL FEELINGS IN THE MATTER.  I AM JUST  VERY SURE  THAT KIND OF THINKING HAS NO PLACE HERE.

 THE OTHER 1/2%  THERE ARE OTHER REASONS  SOME PEOPLE JUST DON'T WORK OUT HERE...  FAMILY DEMANDS-- LIKE DIAPER CHANGING,... OR JUST PLAIN  STAMINA IS ANOTHER...THIS CAN BE TOUGH DEMANDING   WORK- AND SOME PEOPLE JUST CAN NOT KEEP UP WITH IT... EXHAUSTION NEEDS SOME OTHER ENVIRONMENT--- 

****
 WHERE IT GETS COMICAL IS WHEN SOMEONE  RAISES THEIR VOICE AT ME SAYING
"I AM A WELL EDUCATED COLLEGE GRAD- I KNOW HOW TO HANDLE A DOG... WHAT DO YOU THINK I AM????"
AND   I TELL THEM.
****
OTHER THAN THAT......

 GE IS COMIONG ON MAY 27--  AND I THNK THE 30TH????    30  OF THEM TO DO WHATEVER WE NEED AOURND THE FARM... THIS SHOULD BE WITHIN DAYS OIF TEH ARRIVAL OF TEH UMBRELLA BUILDING 30 X 40 '    (----- WITH EXACT DIAGIONALS OF 50' !!!)

THERE IS ALSO THE MUD FENCE-- AROUND THE POND--- AND AROUND THE STREAM IN THE A FIELD...- I NEED TO GET THE MATERIALS FOR THAT STREAM PROJECT...   TEH POND WE WILL PUT THAT POLY FENCING THAT IS NEARLY INVISABLE AROUND THE CHICKENS...-- ONLY CUT IT IN 1/2 FOR A 3'FENCE.


SHANNON  POINTED OUT THERE IS NO SHADE ON THE  PLAY FIELD FARSIDE OF THE BARN IN THE AFTERNOON-- NEED TO SOLVE THAT QUICKELY

 ALL THE RUBBER MATTS THAT WERE ONCE THE FLOOR IN TEH NUTT HOUSE-- THEN  FLOOR IN  THE HORSE TRAILER --- THEN THE WASH AREA, ARE NOW IN THE ALLEY OF THE BARN.. GIVING  US A FULL RUBBER FLOOR THERE... NOW WE HAVE TO POLYURETHANE THE BARN WALLS...

THIS IS MADE POSSIBEL BY THE MANY MANY VERY VERYT HEAVY 2X2X6" CONCRETE ( NEARLY) SQUARES THAT LOOK LIKE RICE  CAKES..  I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE WILL DO WITHTHEM ALL--- ONE OF THOSE FREE THINGS I COULD NOT.. REFUSE... THEY CAN BE FILL IN THE NEW TENT.... OR A FREEFORM DESIGN

WHO KNOWS... AND TEHRE ARE MORE COMING TODAY...
