DEC 11 2015
SOOOO MUCH.. SOOOO SOON-- IF I GET SOME OF IT SCREWED UP,   SO BE IT. 
 LIKE THE DOLLAR UP AT THE BOTTOM OF YESTERDAY'S DD.. APPARENTLY IT IS IN NEED OF REPAIR---

BUT IN THE MEANTIME... THE STEW  ON MY CALENDAR YESTERDAY WAS NOT LUNCH, 
BUT A VERY NICE MAN  NAMED STEW --  WITH A COUPLE PARKINSON RELATED
PEOPLE---- CHERYL BEING ONE OF THEM....  WHO SHOWED INTEREST IN BECOMING 
INVOLVED WITH RAISING THIS BUNCH OF PUPPIES  BY CORPORATE  SPONSORING A COUPLE 
 SPECIFICALLY FOR PK.-- I SAID IF THEY COULD HELP IDENTIFY
LIKELY CANDIDATES WE WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO DEVELOPE A COUPLE OF THE 31 PUPS
SPECIFICALLY FOR PK...  THE TRAINING IS NOT TERRIBLY DIFFERENT...
OUR SHINING EXAMPLE IS   SR THOMAS.
**
SPEAKING OF SIR THOMAS-- RENEE HAS STARTED A CAMERA PERSON GROUP IN 
THE STATE OF WASHINGTON.  WAY TO GO !!
Hello,
CPs Around Whidbey (CPAWs) came to lunch with Sir Thomas and me in our new home in WA. 
To commemorate our first (of hopefully many) meetings, we purchased 23 chicken bricks!
 Lovely group:Jean, Margaret, Anne and Lyn. Tommy was stellar at achieving boredom. 
Best,
Renee
I TRIED TO EXPLAIN TO CHERYL THAT  WHEN YOU GET INVOLVED WITH SDP, YOU ARE
 JOINING A WORLD WIDE BUNCH OF FRIENDS YOU HAVE NOT  YET MET 
 IF YOU GET A FLAT TIRE  ON THE HIGHWAY IN ANY STATE, THERE WOULD LIKELY  BE A CAMERA
PERSON  TO  COME TO YOUR RESCUE... 
LIKE  THE EPISODE OF PAUL AND EARLENE WITH THE FOOD POISIONING  ON THE ROAD 
IN TENNESSEE.
ONLY  REQUIREMENT IS BEING  ABLE TO NAME AT LEAST 10 OF THE SDP PUPS.... WHICH WILL GET ANY CONVERSATION GOING... SO YOU CAN START BEING FRIENDS.
******
NEXT MASSIVE PROJECT IS  BELLA AND GEORGE AND GEORGE'S  ACE AWARD IN TEXAS--- SDP IS EXCEEDINGLY LUCKY TO HAVE  KITTI  AND MARCIA   ORGANIZING THIS...I WAS SHOCKED  TO HEAR TODAY THAT THE CELL PHONE PICTURES MARCIA , AND MEGAN TOOK-- I THOUGHT AS A SAMPLE-- MIGHT EVEN BE HIGH ENOUGH QUALITY FOR ABC TO NOT NEED TO SEND SOMEONE HERE WITH ONE OF THOSE MONSTER CAMERAS.  I MIGHT HAVE EVEN COMBED MY HAIR... IF I'D A KNOWED
***
 I DON'T KNOW IF MEGAN WENT OVER "BACKING UP" GEORGE BETWEEN TEH SEATS IN THE AIRPLANE-- TOO LATE TO WORRY NOW...
ME???  WELL I AM CONCERNED THAT AT DISNEY,  GEORGE TAKE ONE LOOK AT MICKEY MOUSE AND DECIDE THE PLACE IS TOO WIERD AND HE BETTER GET BELLA OUT OF THERE...  HOPEFULLY LIFE IN HER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CAFETERIA... WITH THE SCREAMING KIDS..  HAS PREPARED HIM FOR MICKEY...
***
THERE IS MASSIVE ACTION AROUND THAT ACE AWARD... AKC FILMING--- ABC NEWS WATCHING /GATHERING NEWS CLIPS- FROM FLORIDA... AND IPSWICH FOR A POSSIBLE STORY MONDAY NIGHT???
THINGS LIKE THIS ALWAYS DEPEND ON WHAT OTHER NEWS IS ON THAT DAY-- SO NOTHING IS EVER DEFINITE..
BUT IT LOOKS LIKELY.
THE AWARD CEREMONY LOOKS LIKE   SAT  7PM SERVICE DOG---8:15 UNIFORM SERV DOG  ---9:10 THERAPY DOG  THEN SUNDAY   7:10 COMPANION DOG--- 8:25 SEARCH AND RESCUE 

AND RUMOR HAS IT  ABC MIGHT HAVE US  ON MONDAY NIGHT

***********
IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT ... I HAD EMAILS FROM PURINA LINING UP A CONTRACT FOR THE COMING YEAR- WOW !
THANKS TO NAZIA--- THE CONTRACT WENT ON FOR 4 PAGES... BUT BASICALLY SAID "KEEP DOING WHAT WE ARE DOING".. I WAS A LITTLE CONCERNED WITH  THE CONVERSATION ABOUT  SHOWING THE LOGO  WHEN WE HAD DONE THE LOGO UP INTO A HOSPITAL JOHNNY OR UMBRELLA...  THE PURINA QUILT-- WAS DIFFERENT... IT WAS LOVELY --- BUT  I  WAS CONCERNED-- A SMOKING JACKET ON A SKELETON????

MY OWN  DECISION IS TO GET RID OF THOSE MILK BONE BOXES WE HAVE DONE OVER INTO WASHCLOTH HOLDERS--- THEY MAY BE NICE BOXES... BUT THEY ARE  TO BE GONE  MILKBONE HAS NEVER DONATED...
SO   NOW IF THEY  OFFER US TREATS WE  DON'T WANT THEM. AND IF WE GET THEM FROM CP'S WE CAN DUMP THEM IN PURINA BAGS...  -- I ASKED MILKBONES FOR HELP MANY TIMES... TO NO AVAIL...
*****
SPEAKING OF BAGS OF DOG FOOD.... DO NOT BRING UP MORE BAGS OF PUPPY FOOD  THAN WILL FIT IN THE METAL CONTAINER... YOU ARE JUST INVITING GISELLE AND HER FAMILY.. TO DINNER  ( GISELLE IS A VERY INGENIOUS RAT- WHO HAS A BIG FAMILY THAT USUALLY LIVE IN THE FOREST....UNTIL SHE TRIES TO BRING THEM ALL IN THE NICE WARM HOUSE FOR THE WINTER..... SORT OF LIKE PEOPLE GOING TO FLORIDA....)   THIS IS ALSO WHAT EXPLAINS WHY WE HAVE WANDA-- THE WANDERER ( JACK RUSSEL TERRIER) -- WANDA'S THREAT  IS SUPPOSED TO KEEP GISELLE OUT OF HERE... 
****
AT 11 AM I DID DRIVE TO WOBURN TO GIVE SOMETHING TO BELLA'S DAD FOR THE TRIP OUT OF THE FUN FUND.
PROBLEM WAS  I HAD TO EAT FRENCH FRIES ALL THE WAY BACK UP ROUTE 128 TO STAY AWAKE...IT BEING NAP TIME.
****
THEN AN EMERGENCY CALL--- GE HAD SOME MONEY LEFT IN THEIR COMMUNITY FUND - AND IF I COULD COME UP WITH  A LUMBER LIST FOR A PROJECT BY THIS MORNING WE MIGHT GET MANY THOUSAND DOLLARS WORTH OF  BUILDING MATERIALS..-- SO I QUICK DREW UP A 12 X 16 BUILDING  WITH ALL IT'S  2X 4'S ON 16 INCH CENTERS AND STUFF LIKE THAT-- WHICH DIDN'T COST ENOUGH  TO USE UP THE  THOUSANDS... AND THEN I THOUGHT 
LEXAN-- THE CLEAR/ INDISTRUCTABLE PLASTIC WHICH WE HAVE SOME IN THE FRONT  OF THE DOGS SLEEPING LOFTS- BUT COULD USE MORE-- IT IS EXPENSIVE--- SO I ADDED LEXAN AND  BINGO ! WENT NICELY OVER THE TOP
****
SO WE WILL HAVE A BUNCH OF LUMBER TO STORE TIL NEXT SPRING..... UNLESS WE BUILD A BUILDING MATERIALS SHED TO HOLD THE BUILDING MATERIALS...
SOUNDS STRANGE-- BUT IT IS STUFF WE WILL EVENTUALLY USE.  PLYWOOD, TYVEK, LUMBER...  MAYBE OUT BEHIND THE ARENA????  12 ACRES AND IT IS GETTING CROWDED...
