AUG 10 2015
SUNDAY STEW BROUGHT OUT SEVERAL APPLICANTS FOR A MEET AND GREET...  WE TRY AND GET ACROSS TO APPLICANTS, BEST WAY TO GO IS TO COME HERE AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN- SO WE CAN GET A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT YOUR NEEDS AARE.. WHILE AT THE SAME TIME WE  GET SOME IDEA AS TO  HOW A DOG'S LIFE WILL DEVELOPE WITH YOU.  WE LIKE TO HAVE OUR DOGS BE OUT AND AROUND BECAUSE EVEN WALKING THRU A SENIOR LIVING- OR NURSING HOME WILL CHEER RESIDENTS JUST BY  PROVIDING  SOME  DIVERSION. ( AND THEY ARE ALL AIRCONDITIONED AND HEATED !!). 

 WE HAVE SOME VERY UNUSUAL DOGS COMING ALONG-- I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY ARE GETTING THE SIZE FROM...-- THEY ARE TALL..  MAYBE 5" TALLER THAN OLE DAD, BENT;LEY- MUST BE THE STEROIDS INTHE ROAST BEEF.

SHIRT ORDERS......HOW ON EARTH DID IT GET TO BE AUGUST?   LIKE PREP FOR DOG FEST IS NOW...  WE NEED TO GIVE THEM A SHIRT ORDER BY AUG 19TH- APPARENTLY  TINA HAS THE SIZES FOR THE PEOPLE COMING TO DOGFEST... AND I AM COLLECTING THE SPIRIT STICKS AND VOLUNTEER NUMBERS.. 
VOLUNTEERS WILL GET A DOG FEST SHIRT AS A GIFT...... TANGERINE...., BUT WE NEED TO HAVE THEM WEAR THE PURPLE...AND .  USE THE CONCEPT OF THE PURPLE SHIRTS  ON THAT SAT AND SUNDAY.. THE REASON FOR THE PURPLE IS FOR PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO ASK QUESTIONS OF ANYONE IN A PURPLE SHIRT----- FACTOIDS LIKE... IS THAT DOG PREGNANT?  OR  WHERE IS THE PORTAPOTTY?  -- WHILE AT THE SAME TIME THE SHIRT WEARERS MUST BE AWARE THAT SOME QUESTIONS HAVE TO BE REFERRED TO ME.  THE WHY- TYPE QUESTIONS( LIKE  "WHY IS THAT DOG PREGNANT?" OR "WHY DID YOU BUY 2 HUGE CAKES INSTEAD OF ONE?"

SPEAKING OF PREGNANT---GROMMET IS STILL AT IT...16 MINUTES... AND  OPAL'S TIES WERE 7/9 THRU 7/11  SO MAYBE TOMORROW GEORGE WILL BE ABLE TO DO AN ULTRASOUND??-- I DON'T HAVE GOOD VIBES....I KNOW HE WILL ASK ME IF I THINK SHE IS PREGNANT... I WILL BE THRILLED IF SHE IS.. AND IF SHE IS NOT--- AND THE PROBLEM IS GROMMET-- WE WILL HAVE ALOT OF PROBLEMS...

GRACE AND ANNIE HAVE PRODUCED SPECTACULAR PURINA CLOTHING... IF YOU WANT TO  MAKE SOME.. LET ME KNOW AND WE WILL SEND YOU SOME OF THE EMPTY BAGS ETC...  GRACE EVEN PRODUCED HIGH HEELED SHOES WITH THE PLASTIC WET FOOD CONTAINERS.

MEAT CUTTING STEVE IS ALIVE AND ABLE TO TYPE--  BUT THAT IS ALL I KNOW...
**********
MY GENERIC COMPLAINING/VENTING    OF THE DAY IS THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO NEED TO MAKE PEOPLE AWARE THAT WHATEVER THEY DO IS GOING TO BE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT...
THE WASHER AND DRYER  ARE IN PLACE READY TO BE HOOKED UP.- BEFORE WE DID THAT I HAD TEH  COMPANY SEND PEOPLE AROUND TO BE SURE EVERYTHING WAS IN ORDER FOR THE INSTALATION.

AND  THEN IT BEGINS-
"YOU DON'T HAVE AN OUTLET FOR THE DRYER" ( IF I DID I WOULD HAVE PLUGGED IT IN AND NOT CALLED YOUR COMPANY.)
" WELL I WILL HAVE  TO RUN ANOTHER WIRE FROM THE BOARD"-( RIGHT- THAT IS 5 FEET AWAY)
" YOU DON'T HAVE AN OUTLET FOR THE WASHER EITHER"( SEE FIRST ANSWER)
"YOU CAN'T PLUG THEM INTO THE SAME OUTLET YOU KNOW"
" THE DRAIN WON'T FIT IN THAT PIPE"

THAT GUY HAD NOT BEEN HER 3 MINUTES AND HE HAD AT LEAST 1/2 DOZEN   CAN'Ts   DON;Ts  WONT's  NEGATIVES----    ALL OF WHICH WERE PART OF HIS JOB WHICH SOMEONE FROM HIS COMPANY HAD ALREADY SAID "NO PROBLEM" 

TOO MANY OF THE  CAN'T WON'T PEOPLE AROUND CAN WEAR A PERSON DOWN. 
LUCKILY 99% OF OUR SDP VOLUNTEERS ARE THE CAN DO KIND...

MEANWHILE -- THE ELECT .GATE IS GETTNG HUNG-- WITH 2-3 ENTIRE MALE DOGS  OFTEN ON THE PROPERTY  IT WOULD BE NICE TO BE ABLE TO SIT INTHE TTENT AND SHUTR THE GATE SEPARATING THE HOUSE AREA FROM TEH BARN AREA .

  1. In re: the dryer ... old pantyhose and a clamp or tie... my folks have had their dryer in the basement since, oh, 1979. There is a duct flexible thingy coming off the back of the dryer, an old pantyhose rubber-banded or clamped to the end of the hose; change it every once in a while. Works great. Especially in winter... adds heat and humidity.

    Listen NOT to the Naysayers! for they have less fun!

    Thank you, Carlene, et al, for your great time and service and help to so many that need dogs, as well as those that need an uplifting forward thinking group of people doing great and wonderful things - even seeing all the cams and making peoples' days!
