FEB 20 2016
 FROM LINDA RE: THE CAKES TO THE FIRE DEPRTMENT PROJECT....
58 NAMES. AND COUNTING.... I WILL FIGURE OUT WHICH STATES PARTICIPATED TOMORROW.

AND I KNOW OF ONE  STATION THAT GOT 2----
WHAT A CRAZY IDEA THAT WAS... BUT EVERYONE IS THRILLED !!  WE HAVE LOTSA PHOTOS...

 STATION  #56  IN OMAHA GOT ONE.. AND I AM WONDERING IF MY RELATIVE KIRK SMITH WAS ONE OF THE FIREFIGHTERS AT THAT STATION..  FRANNIE???????  COULD YOU CHECK ON THAT ONE????
I SAW ALASKA ON THE LIST---ALONG WITH CALIFORNIA, MISSISSIPPI ,MAINE ., WISCONSON AND MANY OTHERS... DID WE GET THEM ALL?????

I WONDER........IF WE CAN GET SOMEONE TO PUT THE TOWN AND STATE ON THE ACTUAL  PICTURES.. MAYBE  ONE OF THOSE COLLAGES THAT WE DO OF SHATTING MIGHT BE A FUN POSTER .......FOR NEXT MONTH.????

YOU DIDN'T THINK THIS WAS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME PROJECT... DID YOU???

RE EMMETT

Just got a call, he has been approved for health care paid by them! (VA)
THIS IS ANOTHER BIIIGGGG DEAL--

AS LONG AS THE DOG IS FROM AN ACCREDITED TRAINING FACILITY ( WHICH WE ARE) A VETERAN CAN APPLY TO THE VA FOR COVERING ALL VET AND FOOD EXPENSES...I CAN NOT ENCOURAGE THE VETS ENOUGH TO PARTICIPATE  IN THAT PROGRAM-- WE SUFFERED TO BECOME ACCREDITED SPECIFICALLY SO YOU COULD GET THAT COVERAGE. I NEED TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHAT THAT COVERS...  KEEP IN MIND... A BLOAT IS RARE... BUT HAPPENS... AND SURGERY  IS  ABOUT $2000. -----I THINK TRAVEL TO AND FROM FOR TRAINING IS COVERED TOO.
CAN ONE OF YOU VETS FIND THAT OUT AND LET ME KNOW?  THAT MIGHT HAVE SOME BARING ON WHAT VET GETS ACCEPTED  TO COME AND HAVE A DOG... IF THE VA WILL FLY THEM AROUND...
*******
I AM DOWN TO 2 BANDAIDS FROM THE ELEVATOR ACCIDENT...-- ALMOST A MONTH AGO. 
*****
THE SURVEY CREW LEFT AND PUT MARKERS ON THE PROPERTY LINE BEHIND THE ARENA...  WOW...... ANOTHER PARKING AREA IS IN THE MAKING.
I WAS NEVER SURE WHERE THE LINE WAS... GOAL BEING TO MOVE THE HORSE PROJECT ALONG WITH PARKING- TO BEHIND THE WHITE ARENA.. THE INFIRMARY WILL BE TAKING UP MORE THAN I PLANNED JUST TO GET IT AWAY FROM THE WETLANDS BEHIND THE GIRAFFE TENT.

TIME TO GET CONCENTRATING ON THAT  PROJECT-- I LOVE CONSTRUCTION ALSO...HAMMERING IS GREAT FOR THE FRUSTRATIONS OF PAPERWORK...
************
I ALREADY BROKE THE RULE OF "EATING OUR WAY THRU THE FREEZER...."  WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAKES AT SPINELLI'S  YESTERDAY  THERE WAS A CONTAINER OF SAUSAGE  PEPPERS AND ONIOIN THAT JUST CRIED OUT  TO GO HOME WITH ME...  AND GRACE SAID THERE WAS A COLLECTION OF EGGS.. NOW THAT SPRING IS COMING.. THE HENS ARE LAYING MORE NOW.
PAM IS A GREAT SHORT ORDER COOK !!!!
************ 
AS WE GET INTO SPRING SCHEDULE, IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL TO GET THE CP'S ORGANIZED TO HAVE ONE OR TWO HERE MOST OF THE TIME...
YOU ALL ARE A HUGE HELP-- AND USUALLY THINK POO PICKING IS FUN !!!  IT PAINS ME TO SEE OUR TRAINERS PICK  BECAUSE WITH 31 COMING ALONG WE NEED TRAINERS 
FOR TRAINING.. AND POO PICKING GETS THE HIGHER PRIORITY  BECAUSE IF IT ISN'T PICKED, IT KEEPS COMING - PRETTY SOON WE WOULD BE KNEE DEEP... WE HAVE THE MOST EFFICIENT METHOD OF PICKING... WITH THE 3X6 CARDBORDS WRAPPED AROUND A GROCERY BAG CARRIED IN OUR BACK POCKETS,   ---PICK-- TIE THE TOP-- AND LEAVE WHERE A GOLF CART CAN TRANSPORT TO THE DUNPSTER... AND WE ARE CLEAN!!!
A FOOT IN A PILE IS A TERRIBLE THING.
***
YOU GOTTA HAVE  A  GOAL
 A PICKER IN EVERY POCKET-- AND A CAKE IN EVERY FIRE STATION... 
WHATA OUTFIT !!!
