cakes got out.... i know i got mine out-- to georgetown-- they were shocked... beautiful lemon /whipped cream monster cake..
(georgetown is closer than ipswich---)-----it is one h3ll of a note when people are shocked by a random act of kindness...-- i daresay things are better than they have been--- used to be if you fell down in new york city, people would step over you-- now i get the feeling someone would make a video of it and then help you up... that is progress...
i know when i go to costco, i can always stand around and look at the heavy cases of water or chlorox-- and someone will offer to lift them for me...maybe i am looking more frail-- whatever...help is out there...and people seem so pleased that they did something nice.....
i am delighted to provide the opportunity !!
like Ila Steutermann - from Missouri
In case you didn't see - I wrote this in chat. I'm having so much fun doing this.
APPRECIATION DAY, MARCH 19TH
A very rewarding Appreciation Day. We got our cake delivered to the Fire Department District 4 of Cottleville, Missouri. This was another group of three men than last time. They heard about the prior cake being delivered and were very happy to be this month chosen three. We were again invited into “their home” and greeted with open arms. Sit down at their table, chatted and took pictures.
Oh, and the flyer from last time was on one of the three refrigerators and when I gave these three a flyer, they attached it to the front of THEIR REFRIGERATOR. They were thrilled, as was I.
We left with happiness in our hearts for doing something that was appreciated.
In honor of "cake day" for SDP Gary Dumas and I decided we were going to bring a cake to Brittany a Walmart manager at the Plymouth NH store. About a month ago I had an issue with a women there who was a shopper ( some of you may remember the story) but I felt it was important that Brittany was recognized for her effort to deflate the situation and make me and my family feel comfortable. I also learned today talking with Brittany that her husband is a veteran and he has a service dog and when she was a child she had a service dog for a short time for epilepsy. She knows the importance of these dogs more importantly she understands and for that I thank her !
i was up alot last night trying to get the construction settled in my head---i thiink i did... i feel better about how to take best advantage of the help from GE.. never did i think i would b able to afford the entire perimeter fence that was sttongly suggested by the USDA "inspector" but i am off today to tractor supply to get the materials to run the last ?800 feet to make us perimeter-ed. the back driveway will have a gate that is not electrified.. at least yet- there is no eledtricity out there ....yet...
and i know those GE people are super fence putter-inners.
if the puppy hill camera swings that way, you might see us moving that fence over 3-4' to make the "drive thru" a little more generous.
i went thru with the tractor and was very nervous-- the 5' bucket had inches to spare.
I HAVE ASKED CLEARSPAN TO GIVE ME A QUOTE ON A 26 X 36 BUILDING WHICH WOULD LOOK AND ACT LIKE THE G-TENT AND ARENA... WE CAN GET ALLTHE BULDOZING ETC DONE AND THEN INVITE JERI AND STEVE TO HELP PUT UP THE FRAME...WE ARE STILL IN AWE OF THE FACT THATAT THEY WORK TOGETHER READING DIRECTIONS AND PUTTIN UP THE G-TENT AND NEVER FOUGHT ONCE... EVERY TIME I SEE THAT GEICO ADVERTISEMENT ABOUT TARZAN AND JANE "WHICH WAY IS THE WATERFALL" I THINK OF THEM-- ( GREAT COMMERCIAL)
SO WE ARE ON A ROLL... TREE GUY 4/22 AND GE 4/22-4/23 I AM ALMOST READY...
Today, in almost two years I started to jog again. I know this is all due to having Emmett. He has given me back my confidence. I don't jog with him but I leave him with someone at home. I use a modified baby jogger to jog with but hopefully someday soon it will be with Emmett.
BETTER CHECK WITH GETTING EMMET IN SHAPE BEFORE YOU TRY HIM JOGGING... DANES ARE NOT KNOWN FOR STAMINA-- BE AWARE... IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WIHT HEART SIZE...
