APRIL 21 2016
TODAY WILL BE THE DAY OF THE GREAT HARNESS HUNT...
HISTORY OF CASE...
WHEN I DROVE THE 8 DONKEYS- THERE WAS NO SHORTCUT I WOULD TAKE AND HAVE ANYONE SAY 'THEY ARE JUST DONKEYS"-- I  LIVE NEAR A VERY EXCLUSIVE ( AND EXPERIENCED )  HORSE DRIVING CLUB---  THE KIND THAT FLY THEIR HORSES TO EUROPE TO COMPETE INTERNATIONALLY..  ALL DRESSED PERFECTLY. OR SHOULD  I SAY "ATTIRED" 
 INTO THAT ATMOSPHERE I WANDERED WITH 8 MINI DONKEYS- BEING IN THE ANIMAL EPISODE BUSINESS, PURCHASE OF HARNESS WAS DEDUCTABLE ( AND INTHIS CASE VERY PROFITABLE)BEST HARNESS ANYONE HAD WAS A "FRIEDMAN HARNESS"   FROM SAM FRIEDMAN... IN TORONTO...
******
WHEN I WAS DRIVING 4----I WENT THERE- AND SAM WAS DELIGHTFUL AND SAID HE WOULD TAKE ON THE CHALLANGE FOR ME-- WHICH HE DID AND MADE ME A HARNESS FOR 4  WHICH WAS BETTER THAN ANY COACH LEATHER PRODUCT AROUND- EVERY PIECE WAS FINISHED TO PERFECTION... AS I GREW FROM 4 TO 8, I WENT BACK AND SAM WAS NO LONGER AROUND-- SO SOMEONE IN HIS PLACE MADE THE NEXT 4 FROM SAM'S NOTES..
POINT BEING  I COULD/CAN  TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EVERY PEICE OF  THE OLD CRAFTSMAN SAM'S 4 HARNESS,,A ND THE "YOUNG GUY'S" 4.  WHICH WQS STILL TERRIFFIC....
GETTING OUT OF THE DONKEY DRIVING BUSINESS-- WHICH INVOLVED DRIVING SANTA'S INTO THE BALLROOMS OF MANY BOSTON 'S FINEST HOTELS.... I SPLIT THAT HARNESS  AND DONKEYS BETWEEN 2 FRIENDS...WENDY AND PEGGY\
*************THIS IS GOING SOMEWHERE... JUST WAIT
I BORROWED THE HARNESS BACK FOR THE  2013 CHRISTMAS SHOT OF THE DOGS IN SANTA'S HARNESS. EACH HARNESS WAS IN IT'S OWN BLUE RUBBERMAID BOX--- I WAS VASTLY FAMILIAR WITH THAT HARNESS'S DETAIL HAVING SPENT DAYS CLEANING IT FOR PERFORMANCES -- IT TOOK 8 HOURS MINIMUM..  SO WHEN I WENT TO RETURN IT, I HAD TO CLEAN IT   AND PUT IT BACK TOGETHER--- CORRECTLY WITH EACH PIECE OF THE HUNDRED PARTS WITH THE CORRECT HARNESS.
I DID THAT IN THE TRAINING ROOM-- HARNESS HANGING ALL OVER RAFTERS AND A POTATOCHIP RACK WHICH WORKED WELL FOR THAT PURPOSE...
I LET THEM DRY ( LEATHER IS NOTORIOUS FOR MOLDING) CAREFULY PLACED THEM IN THEIR PROPERLY LABELED BOXES  FROM DONQUI TO LEROY.
 END OF MEMORY
I THOUGHT I RETURNED THEM YEARS AGO--- BUT PEGGY CALLED YESTERDAY SAYING THEY WERE LOOKING FOR  THEIRS AND IT WASN'T WHERE SHE EXPECTED.... COULD BE THEY MOVED IT-- HOWEVER ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE...
THERE IS A LARGE POSIBILITY THAT  AFTER I CLEANED IT , SOMEONE - JANINE- TOOK IT ALL  TO WENDY'S --OR MEGAN  NEEDING IT OUT OF THE WAY- STASHED IT NEATLY SOMEWHERE ELSE.

WE NEED TO FIND THAT HARNESS TODAY-- IT IS DRIVING ME NUTS... IT IS ALSO A  $9000 PILE OF HARNESS... I DON'T YET KNOW IF WENDY IS MISSING HER'S TOO  OR IF SHE HAS ALL 8--  I AM SURE IT IS A SIGNIFICANT LUMP IOF BLUE BOXES..
WE NEED TO FIND IT.  IT IS IN SOME NOOK-- EITHER HERE OR AT PEGGY'S-- OR WENDY'S
SO EVERYBODY ON THE PROPERTY.... THAT IS  TODAY'S ISSUE.

AND A PROGRESS NOTE ON CLARK---

I hear a lot of comments now, and I'm sure you've heard most of them, but wanted to share a few notable ones Clark and I have heard:

-A girl in my neighborhood asked what kind of dog he was and what he was doing.  My mom was with us and explained that he's working and he helps me walk.  She said, "Wow, that's a really helpful dog!"
-Walking past a conference room at work, I overheard "He is just SO well behaved for her."
-Stopped at a stoplight (windows up), a guy on the sidewalk waved and shouted "Hey lady!  You've got Marmaduke in the back of your car!" like I didn't know...?!
-Another woman at work who sees us all the time said "You guys just make everybody smile!"
