AUG 7 2015
GROMMETT WAS SMILING YESTERDAY AFTER 19 MINUTES WITH GUSSIE.

LEAVING US WITH LARGE QUESTIONS ABOUT  WALTER...  WE SHOULD AT LEAST ASK WALTER HOW HE FEELS ABOUT GUSSIE TODAY
JUST FOR FUTURE REFERRENCE...
*****
THERE IS SOOOOO MUCH GOING ON THAT I AM HAVING TROUBLE PRIORITIZING+
I WAS VERY GLAD TO GET A  THANK YOU NOTE FROM A RECIPIENT- TO REMIND ME WHAT WE ARE ACCOMPLISHING HERE.  
******
VENTING TIME  ...
TO BOIL IT DOWN....THE  PREGNANCY OF DOGS IS A #1 CONCERN... WE NOW HAVE 4 BRED DOGS-  IF THEY ALL WHELP AT ONCE( WHICH THEY NEARLY WILL)
IT WILL BE A CHALLANGE..  IF THEY DON'T WHELP- THEN WE HAVE SOME HUGE PROBLEM IAS YET I  DO NOT UNDERSTAND....

THE OTHER MAJOR  PROBLEM IS.. I BOUGHT 2 PIECES OF HARDWARE YESTERDAY-- FOR $14.58-  AND WITHOUT MUCH THOUGHT,  I CHARGED IT ON THE AMERICAN EXPRESS.
NOW THAT WE HAVE AN ACCOUNTANT, I KNOW I MUST NOT LOSE THAT TINY SLIP OF PAPER TO EXPLAIN TO HER WHAT THAT $14.58   CHARGE IS ON THE AMEX BILL.  
THE DISTRACTION OF TRYING TO DEAL WITH THE  CPA -- ALONG WITH THE ADI ACCREDITTION  BUNCH-- ALONG WITH THE MASS DEPT OF EMPLOYMENT- THE BOARD OF HEALH AND BUILDING INSPECTOR.... AND A FEW MORE... IS OVERWHELMING.   ....AND VERY DISCOURAGING.

I WILL SURVIVE..
.BUT I HAD TROUBLE BEING CHEERFUL AT MAIL CALL YESTERDAY-- AND I USUALLY ENJOY THAT NONSENSE.--   WHERE IS STEVE WHEN I NEED HIM.???? 

THE INTERNET HAS IT'S COMPLICATIONS- 2 SPECIFICALLY ----
 ONE IS A VERY NEEDY PERSON FROM BRITAIN WHO CALLS AND EXPECTS US TO SPEND HOURS ON THE PHONE-  PLUS SHE HAS TRIED FOR  COURTNEYS ( EXPLORE) ATTENTION ALSO.  THERE ARE NO ANSWERS FOR HER.  BUT SHE CALLS--  CONSTANTLY.....THE AREA CODE #44 IS BRITAIN I THINK...

THEN THERE ARE JUST LURKERS, JUST WAITING FOR ME TO DO SOMETHING THEY CONSIDER  WRONG SO THEY FIND OTHER LIKE MINDED  SOULS TO START A "RING OF MISERY" BASHING SDP AND THE POSITIVE THINGS THAT GET DONE-- THEY CAN'T  IGNORE THE PROBLEMS AND MOVE ON.......  IT IS UPSETTING  ME.   ESPECIALLY WHEN  IT IS A DECISION  I HAD TO MAKE.
 
 I WILL SURVIVE-  BY VENTING-- AND THROWING THINGS...
WELL ---I USED TO GO SHOVEL HORSE MANURE --- IT IS GREAT FOR CLEARING THE HEAD..... 
THAT IS SOMETHING I HAVE PASSED ON TO JANINE...  EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE  YOU MIGHT SEE HER FLINGING HORSE PUCKIES OUT THE DOOR.  JUST STAY AWAY..SHE IS WORKING THRU A PROBLEM.
****
MOVING ON.....
SHE HAS SAID THE DONKEY WILL BE HERE ABOUT THE 20TH--  I DON'T KNOW THE DETAILS..

AND I CONTACETED TWAN WHO IS ORGANIZING TEH TRANSPORT OF NEAL.... HOPEFULLY THE 18TH OR 20TH. ON A DELTA FLIGHT GETTING HERE ABOTU NOON...
AND HE WILL BE COMING CARGO- SO THAT MEANS RUNNING FROM ONE SIDE OF THE AIRPORT TO THE OTHER WITH A HANDFULL OF FORMS  NEEDING A STAMP.- 
 ( PAPERS AGAIN... SEE WHAT I MEAN?)
AT LEAST THIS TIME WE WILL START IN THE CARGO AREA-- THEN TO THE PASSENGER E TERMINAL FOR THE CUSTOMS STAMP... THEN BACK TO THE CARGO WITHTHE 7 COPIES OF STAMPED FORMS.. IN THIS PAPERLESS SOCIETY.....AND PICK UP THE DOG.
*****
I DID WATCH THE DEBATE LAST NIGHT, INSTEAD OF THE  OTHER MYTHBUSTERS...LET ME SEE IF I HAVE THIS RIGHT...
THE QUESTION OF DONALD--- "WILL YOU CONSIDER STARTING A THIRD PARTY IF YOU DON'T GET THIS REPUBLICAN NOMINATION..." LOOMS VERY LARGE OVER THE  ENTIRE FIELD...
IF HE STARTS A 3RD PARTY  THEY ARE SAYING THAT WILL INSURE HILLARY'S  WIN...SO THAT MIGHT JUST GET HIM THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION TO STOP THAT...
HMMMMM   AND BILL CALLED   DONALD...

ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE , WAR AND POLITICS.

Hi Carlene,

I posted this and wanted to send to you as well and then of
course the comments came up that "I hope you sent this to Carlene" :)

Always
listen to the dog! Carlene White, the founder of Service Dog Project always says
"listen to the dog". If they don't want to do something, there's a reason.
Figure it out. Well, she's right and I really do try and live by that. Princess
Pants, put that to great example yesterday. Let me preface this by saying during
the summer, I always pre-start and cool the car before we load up. I have remote
start so it's quite easy and just habit. Yesterday however, we had been at the
nail salon for a couple of hours. We went to leave and I open the back of
Willow's Explorer and say "Willow load". She puts her nose in and looks at me.
"Willow load". Nope. "Willlooow load" uh no. "c'mon Willow load" she proceeds to
look at me like I'm insane. Meanwhile, people driving by think I'm kidnapping
someone's dog that will not get in my car! So, I think well, maybe she's sore
for some reason and I'll load her from the rear seat. Nada. Back to the rear. I
now stop for a minute and think about why in the world she won't load. I place
my hand on her bedding and low and behold yes, it's warm! I realize I did not
pre-start the car and pre-cool it! Was it blazing hot? No. However, it was not
to her liking. I burst out laughing at my mistake, closed the car and hit the
remote start. On our way back in to the salon to wait for it to cool, sure
enough a man approached who did think I was kidnapping someone's dog! He asked
"is that the dog from such and such street?" Ummm, no. Not to mention she was in
her service dog/mobility harness. I did explain what had happened and then went
in where we sat and waited for the car to cool. When it had and we left again?
"Willow load" Yup, jumped right in to her pre-cooled chariot. Gotta love this
girl! Lol...Always listen to the dog!

  1. Hang in there Carlene. I know how hard it is to ignore the jibber jabber of unwanted advice.... , you have done so much for so many to make life better/happier/worthwhile that those very loud nay-sayers should just go jump in the lake. You have made my life so much better since I started following SDP, and I don't have a balance issue, but I did have an "outlook on life" issue, and what you do daily made me see that my life has value too.

    I now volunteer with a local dog rescue group because of you. I am a better pet owner because of you, I only complain about an ailment once a day because of you, and I am a happier person because of you. That makes you A-NUMBER-ONE in my book. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you've done for me, and you weren't even trying.

    You keep doing what you're doing, and as Bette Midler always said, "FUCKEM IF THEY CAN'T TAKE A JOKE."
