FOR WANT OF A NAIL THE SHOE WAS LOST
FOR WANT OF A SHOE THE HORSE WAS LOST
FOR WANT OF A HORSE  THE KNIGHT  WAS LOST
 FOR WANT OF A KNIGHT THE KINGDOM   WAS LOST
ALL FOR WANT OF A NAIL

WE DIDN'T DO BADLY- THANKS TO SO MANY PEOPLE HERE AT THE TIME
  WE LOST POWER AT ?3:00 YESTERDAY-  NOT UNUSUAL- 
WE ARE AT THE END OF THE IPSWICH LINE.
I WAITED  A FEW  MINUTES - IT DIDN'T GO BACK ON

I CALLED THE ELECTRIC COMPANY-- AND THEY DID N'T KNOW IT WAS OUT
THAT WAS A BAD SIGN- IF THEY DIDN'T KNOW   THEN THE HAD NOT EVEN TRIED TO FIX IT YET...

BUT IT WAS   C  O  L  D -- BIG TIME--
I HAVE PREPARED US FOR THIS KIND OF THING--
 BUT AROUND HERE THERE ARE SOOOOOOO MANY "FERNOWS"
SOMETHING IS ALL SET TO WORK 'FOR NOW '   AND I WILL COME BACK AND FINISH....ETC

BIGGEST PROBLEM  WAS A SMALL HOLE IN TEH PIPE INT EH DEAGLE HOUSE WOOD STOVE
I KNEW IT-  IT IS ABOUT A $2.00 PROBLEM- AND I   KNEW IT OFTEN...
 AND DID NOT GO TO LOWES FOR THE  SECTION OT FIX IT.
 ( HOME DEPOT DOESN'T CARRY IT .. AND  I LIKE RIDING MY WHEELCHAIR BETTER IN HOME DEPOT)
FURTHERMORE I DON'T KNOW WHERE THINGS ARE IN LOWES...  I COULD WORK IN HOME DEPOT.
STUPID... YUP....

STEVE WAS THE ORGANIZER --  WE (EDITORIAL 'WE"  I SAT BY THE  FIRE) WENT ROUND AND LIT WOOD FIRES... THE LAUNDRY ( THANKS TO THE ADAMS  STOVE) & THE GUEST HOUSE--- PLAN WAS TO WAIT 1/2 HOUR BEFORE MOVING DOGS... THEN THE ELETRIC COMPANY BEGAN TO ARRIVE-- BLOCKING THE DRIVEWAY SO NO ONE COULD GET OUT( A GOOD THING- WE NEEDED EVERYONE)
IT WAS ONLY US-- THE NEIGHBORS WERE FINE...AND IT WAS DEFINITELY THE GREEN BOX (?TRANSFORMER?) BY THE GATE...-- WHICH SMELLED LIKE BURINING OIL-- AND MAYBE THE WIRE TO THE STREET( UNDERGROUND)
THE GREEN MONSTER WOULD TAKE 2 HOURS TO CHANGE- AND THEY HAD ONE AND DID NOT HAVE TO SEND TO CHINA FOR ONE...- IF THE WIRE HAD FRIED IT WOLD BE ANOTHER "COUPLE HOURS"... 
TEMP WAS DROPPING  IN THE DEAGLE .. BUT WE MOVED TEH NUTTS  TO THE BARN WHERE OUR AUTO ON GENERATOR KEPT THE FURNACE IN THE KENNEL NICE AND TOASTY..
WE HATED TO MOVE THE DEAGLE BUNCH-- THEY ARE ALL HEALTHY NOW BUT WE ARE NOT SURE IF THEY ARE STILL "SHEDDING VIRUS"--  WE PREPARED TO MOVE THEM IN THE HOUSE----------  LAURA DONNED A TYVEK SUIT TO CARRY THEM...TO THE TILED KITCHEN---PILED HIGH WITH FLUFFIES;;; AND WE WAITED.. THE KITCHEN DOGS WERE TO GO TO GRACE INTHE GUEST HOUSE-- AND IT WAS GETTING DARK.. 

 NEW GREEN BOX WAS IN-- WIRES WER BEING CONNEDCTED- AND TEH TEMP INTHE DEAGLE HOUSE WAS 51 DEGREES..-- WE HESITATED BECAUSE IF IT WAS 50 DEGREES OUTSIDE WE WOULD BE THRILLED WITH THE TEMP... WE STOPPED LOOKING---- IT WENT  BELOW 50  -- BECAUSE THE TRUCK WAS AT THE STREET. HOOKING US LIVE... WHEN THE POWER CAME BACK ON-- INDICATING -- AFTER A FEW M INUTES ---THAT THE WIRE  WAS OK...

AS I SAT BY THE FIRE-- THE LIST OF FERNOWS GREW LONG...AND TODAY WE NEED TO GET EVERYONE'S OBSERVATIONS AND GO THRU THE LIST AND FIX THEM.
THE HOUSE GENERATOR FUNCTIONED BEAUTIFULLY(THANKS BUD) 
--ONCE OFF THE PORCH WITH IT'S FUMES- THAT RAN THE 2 KEROSENE 
FURNACES IN THE HOUSE.... ONCE I LOCATED A 3' EXTENSION CORD IN THE DARK...
2 OF THE 3 COLEMANS LANTERNS WORKED FINE- ONE IN GUEST HOUSE ..ONE IN OFFICE... 
 THE THIRD ONE NEEDED 8  "D"  BATTERIES... WE HAD ONLY "C"...

THE LIST GOES ON... SO THERE IS A TRIP TO LOWES TODAY-
I AM TRYING TO GET OUT WITH EITHER MEGAN OR STEVE AT 10 AND 3..
SO MAYBE THE 10 AM TRIP CAN BE TO LOWES....

WE JUST HAD TO BRING CHAOS AND BENTLY IN THE HOUSE-- APPARENTLY THE HEAT IN THE DORM DID NOT COME ON AND CHAOS WAS COMPLAINING..
ANOTHER PROBLEM  TO SOLVE.

I WONDERED... BUD...... THE HOUSE GENERATOR IS NOT BIG EINOGH TO RUN THE ELECTRIC HEATER IN THE NUT HOUSE-- BUT WOUL DIT HAVE RUN ONE OF THOSE 1500 W "MILKHOUSE HEATERS"?  THAT  WOULD HAVE HELPED...  ( SO FIND ONE OF THOSE TODAY TOO  WE OWN 900 OF THEM)
