FEB 7 2016
 FROM JERI AND AUDRY
JUST A QUICK NOTE TO LET YOU KNOW WE HAVE ARRIVED AND ALL  WENT WELL...
AUDREY RODE LIKE A CHAMP...ALL SYSTEMS ARE IN WORKING ORDER...
MORE LATER...
*****
SHATUPON DAY !!!  WE HAVE SOLD OUT THE 2100 "NORMAL BOARD"---- PRAISES BE !!--- WE WOULD HAVE A TERRIBLE TIME WITHOUT IT.

 PLUS IT WAS SUGGESTED WE USE SOME FUN FUND---TO HAVE THE HORSE  VETERNARIAN COME CHECK THE BIG DONKEY FOR PREGNANCY.. SHE IS GETTING A VERY FUNNY SHAPE IF SHE IS NOT PREGO...
****
TWO OF THE  DONKEYS WENT TO BELLA'S YESTERDAY.. 

..New members to the Burton clan. 2 Donkeys from SDP. Paisley and her daughter Eleanor. George kept an eye on Bella from the other side of the fence.

SO WE ARE DOWN TO WHAT I EXPECTED TO HAVE 4 MONTHS AGO.1. BIG AND 1  LITTLE MANAGEABLE DONKEYS.  WE HAD THE LITTLE GUY  IN FOR MAILCALL... HE WAS NOT REALLY RELAXED.. SO HE NEEDS MORE HNADLING/WALKING ON A LEASH ETC...  HAND FEEDING..

SPEAKING OF FEEDING-- BENTLEY STUFFED HIS NOSE IN THE DONKEY  FOOD AND MUNCHED AWAY.....HE  WOULD HAVE FINISHED THE BOWL... SO MUCH FOR CORN IS BAD TO FEED DOGS... WELL... WE MAY FIND OUT SOME DETAILS TODAY...
*********
THAT STUFF THAT IS OUT THERE IS NOT EVEN NICE  SNOW.  I PUSHED SOME AROUND FOR A BIT.. BUT IT WASN'T FUN AT ALL..-- PROBLEM BEING THE GROUND IS NOT SOLID UNDERNEATH SO I CONSTANTLY DUG UP STONE DUST MAKING DIRTY LOOKING PILES. IT WILL TAKE A MASSIVE EFFORT TO GET GRASS ON THAT "SITTABLE SECTION" BY PUPPY HILL  BY DOGFEST...  WE DO HAVE A PILE WHICH SHOULD BE TOPSOIL BY SPRING.
*****
JANINE TOOK OVER BENTLEY'S "AIRING"  TOOK HIM FOR A WALK IN THE FOREST-- HE LOVED IT !!  
******
I THINK WE HAVE THE  FLYER FINALIZED FOR THE 19TH CAKE BIT...

POSTER ON ONE SIDE AN DSTORY ON THE OTHER... ( TWICE THRU THE PRINTER...)
IT SHOULD BE GOOD FUN TO HAND OUT CAKES...  -- I WILL DO IPSWICH !  I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE EVERY STATE  COVERED.. SO GET READY....WE CAN DO IT.
******
THE OTHER THING TO DO TODAY IS TO TAPE A CONGRATS FOR CHARLIE AT EXPLORE-- APPARENTLY THEY ARE  SLATED TO HAVE A MILLION "LIKES"  ON FACEBOOK  TOMORROW..
 IF ANY OF YOU CAN DO THAT -- GO FOR IT.  MAYBE SIGN IT   SDP/CP XXXXXX SO THEYKNOW WE ARE CO OPERATING... 

****************
I Don't mean to bore you with details ... but This is where i am keeping record in case anyone asks me..
********
it is amazing what throws you /me off-- timing wise...
1.   with the 8" snow, i needed to plow to get the staff and volunteers in to deal with the dogs...
 i got up in the tractor without a problem , managed 
teh hydralics with my right elbow instead of my hand... without digging up too much hot top...
.and  felt very proud of myself--- until i had to get out very quickly to tend to a person al matter...
 i found that  i may use my left hand to lift myself in, but i need my right hand to lower myself out. leading to a very uncerimonious exit...  not a big problem... just one more inconvenience..

2.  then a simple matter of shutting the car door with the other hand caused me to slice my left leg with the bottom edge of the doorr.  bless grace---my full time reg nurse... gettin g alot of practice.
the lesson is i have to move more slowly now...#$%^%^&*() it  !
****
meanwhile bentley and chos madE the trip to the next town- just for fun....he never lay daown  but  panted all the way and back...
just to be techincally accurate... it was not the next town...i am ipswich  for 1/4 mile  topsfield for 3/4 mile , boxford for 3 miles then georgetown ... which has STORES to play in...that's 3 towns away....
