a few of you are still confused about my comment on "just send the postage !!" we are- at the moment ... overloaded with great stuff..but you are supplying it faster than we can use it... and unless i build another house, storage is a problem ...
however..... what we really need to continue is 2 people 24 hours to help with puppies and that costs money-- so if you just sent what you were spending on postage--- in addition to your usual chicken bricks( we couldn't live without those) it would be very helpfull -- a dollar or two in an envelope with a short note-- and i will open them at mail call-- we can keep track of the daily total on the white board.... a great big box from washington state.... had lovely usefull stuff in it--
but the postage was $35.78 add a few $3.84 and $7.65 and there is some serious money we are giving the post off ice and ups.. i will undo the wish list... even if that postage is sometimes free.... lets put the generic box.. on hold..for a moment..
sample???......it is good... we are eating it... but we have 7 boxes of mini wheats of all flavors-- and it will take a while to finish it... along with chicken soup--- not to mention wee wee pads-- etc.........
yesterday i discussed with theresa-- the doggie bag... and things wie will have to mail-- strting probably next week... i decided we could wrap the puzzles in brown paper, til i realized where would i spread out a 8" x 24" piece of paper and wrap it??? there is no extra room here at all.. we could move the entire "shipping department" to the guest house -but that is conducive to error- it works better if we can wrap stuff immediately here- by the time we walk across the drive, we have become distracted by a flock of guinnea hens and forget something we decided to remember when we left the house.-- so somehow......
blue gwen and early sandy have offered.... they did such a great job on the bellas shirts.. but that was at bellas.... this place will be a new challange...
we need to boil it down to one source....if purchases come here by mail,paypal ( computer) and in person... maybe if we had one notebook here- and everything- mail call or in person... gets written down in it-- to be checked when out the door to be mailed. theresa has some pitney bowles machine coming to help. it is the one source concept that gets critical.
I just wanted to write after reading about Joanna Leigh today. I know
she had been given one of your dogs, and it made me sick to find out she was a fraud and convicted. How she could take a dog away from someone who really needed it, is beyond my comprehension. I only hope the dog is safe. Please keep up the good work!!! Best, Wendy ***********
NO I TOOK THE DOG AWAY FROM HER LONG BEFOREE ANYONE ELSE REALIZED SHE WAS NUTS.the dog and new partner are doing famously...*****
