MAY 7 2016
POWERBALL....OK... TODAY AND TOMORROW I WILL PUT $10 IN THE FUN JUG ESPECIALLY FOR THE POWER BALL INVESTMENT... THEN TAKE THOSE DOLLARS---$10--- OUT OF THE FUN JUG AND ASK THE TRAINERS TO GET ONE QUICKPICK **** FOR SDP****FROM THE STORES THEY GO IN WHILE TRAINING.  SO WHEN WE WIN.....THAT SHOULD MAKE THE WINNINGS TAX FREE?    THEY TELL YOU THE POT IS WORTH $439 MILLION  BUT TEH AFTER TAXES IS $261- WELL  IF WE ARE TAX FREE WE SHOULD GET THE $439... NO?
I BET SOMEONE HAS FIGURED THAT OUT TO BE WRONG...  BUT IT WOULD BE INTERESTING.

I LIKE THE CONCEPT..  MAYBE GOLDIE CAN PULL OFF THAT ONE.  MAYBE THERE IS SOME 501 C 3 RULING ABOUT GAMBLING- I WOULD CONSIDER IT INVESTING IN A BUSINESS SCHEME.. WORTH A TRY ($10) 
******
BABYS ARE DOING NICELY--  WE CAN NOT SEE THE OWL'S MIDNIGHT ADVENTURES-- BUT TWICE NOW WE HAVE SEEN THE REMAINS OF THEIR MIDNIGHT SNACKS..  SO MOMMY MUST BE FEEDING THEM-- ARE WE SURE IT IS MOMMY?  HOW ABOUT DADDY?  THERE IS ONLY ONE BIG OWL IN THE TREES THAT WE HAVE SEEN- AND OUR CULTURE  MAKES US ASSUME IT IS MOMMY.-   THE CHORE IS CLEARER WITH MAUDE-- SHE COMES EQUIPT WITH THE MILK BAR.
REMEMBER I SAID SHE WOULD HAVE THE BABY WHEN YOU COULD SEE THE MILK DEPARTMENT BETWEEN HER BACK LEGS..?  WELL-- FOR YOUR FUTURE REFERENCE,   HAVE A LOOK... YOU CAN  SEE IT NOW...
***
THE ONLY OTHER MAUDE REPORT IS HER FEET....I HAD NO IDEA HER FEET WERE SO LONG...- NOW WE NEED THE BLACKSMITH TO COME TRIM HER FEET... AND THAT MAY NOT BE EASY... I DON'T KNOW IF SHE HAS EVER HAD HER FEET TRIMMED BEFORE.-- USUALLY OVER THE ROUGH ROCKS ETC  THEY WEAR DOWN...  BUT THE NICE MUD AND STRAW FOOTING HERE,  THEY ARE LIKE LONG FINGERNAILS... GOTTA GO..
SO TODAY YOU MAY SEE US PICK UP HER FEET FOR PRACTICE AND THEN GIVE HER A COOKIE....  IN DAYS GONE BY I MIGHT HAVE ATTEMPTED TO TRIM HER FEET-- THEY ARE SO LONG IT WOULD NOT TAKE ANY SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE TO AT LEAST MAKE THEM SHORTER.... AND I DO HAVE TRIMMERS.
I BET SHE HAS NEVER BEEN TIED UP  WITH A HALTER EITHER... SO THIS COULD BE FUN.
****** 
I AM REALLY OUT OF PRACTICE WITH THE CONSTRUCTION BUSINESS, BUT YESTERDAY I DID MANAGE TO GET A STRAIGHT LINE STRUNG  BETWEEN 2 OF THE EXISTING POSTS OF THE OLD ARENA.. PLAN BEING TO  PUT IN 4X6 POSTS EVERY 4 FEET- TO HOLD UP ¾ INCH PLYWOOD WHICH WOULD BE THE INSIDE WALL OF  A RUN IN SHED... I STILL HAVE THE EXTERIOR PLYWOOD  SO TEH "BUILDING" IS A REPAIR IN THE SAME FOOTPRINT--  THIS WOULD EVENTUALLY BECOME A QUARENTINE  BARN FOR SNOTTY NOSES JANINE KEEPS BRING UP FROM TEXAS OR PENNA.   AND I WILL HAVE THE ON CAMERA MAUDE STALL FOR WHAT WILL BE MY KEEPERS. 
IN THE MEANTIME THE WHOLE AREA BEHIND THE ARENA WILL BE PARKING FOR DOG FEST-- AND PROBABLY  VOLUNTEERS ON SUNDAYS. 
**
ALSO IN THE MEANTIME-- I AM HOPING WE WILL HAVE SOME SOIL LEFT FROM TH E FOUNDATION FOR THE INFIRMARY SO WE CAN  MAKE A BETTER RAMP OUT OF THE OTHER PARKING LOT OFF THE OLD DRIVEWAY...  I CAN  MAKE IT IN THE 4WD  BUT GIVEN  THE  RAIN AND MUD FACTOR, IT WOULD BE BETTER TO WORK ON THAT RAMP.
I AM HOPING THIS NEW  BUILDING DEPARTMENT HAS FINALLY COME UP WITH A PERMIT...
**** 
FOR NEW PEOPLE--MY EXPERIENCE WITH BUILDING INSPECTORS IS EXTREMELY PAINFUL- BRIEFLY--- WHEN THE ARENA COLLAPSED 1987  , I GOT A PERMIT TO PUT UP THE NEW ONE- I PICKED THE CLEARSPAN COMPANY- NOT A LOCAL CONTRACTOR SUGGESTED BY THE "OLD"  BUILDING INSPECTOR.   I PAID THE $51,000 FOR THE STRUCTURE AND THE DAY AFTER I PAID IT THE BUILDING INSPECTOR TOLD ME HE HAD CHANGED HIS MIND AND VOIDED THE PERMIT-- ASKING WHY I HAD CHOSEN A COMPANY FROM SO FAAR AWAY ( IOWA?) WHEN HE HAD CONTRACTORS HERE THAT WOULD BUILD IT.

HE SAID HE HAD 8 YEARS TO CHANGE HIS MIND AND MAKE ME TAKE IT DOWN IF I DIDN'T  GET A SOIL COMPACTION TEST DONE BY HIS  REGSGTERED BUNCH OF SOIL STUDY PEOPLE--- THIS IS FOR A BUILDING THAT WOULD STRESS UP IN A WIND, NOT DOWN... THAT WAS $27000 WHICH I DID NOT HAVE-- ONE OF THE NEIGHBORS BAILED ME OUT WITH $20,000 IF I PROMISED NOT TO PUT IN A CELL TOWER- AND THAT BUILDING INSPECTOR  STUCK HIS FINGER AT ME AND SAID "YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE , YOU ARE ONLY A WOMAN"
THERE IS A NEW INSPECTOR NOW...  BUT I WAS BEGINNING TO PANIC BECAUSE HE WANTED ONE MORE THING THEN ONE OTHER THING-- AND ANOTHER.. LIKE  ARCHETECTS DRAWINGS- FOR A CONCRETE BLOCK BUILDING???  ANYWAY IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE COMPLETE NOW-- I HOPE....

Just wanted to send out a HUGE shout out to Explore and to SDP. So many of my kids in my class have NEVER seen a donkey or owls ( only in books). So many questions were asked today! Kids wanted to know if donkeys were in Denver/Colorado and if we had owls as well. Took the opportunity to have them google search them both! They were so very busy researching. Amazing discussions were had by all. Again thank you Explore and SDP. XP ( a boy in my class) said it in a nut shell, " If an animal isn't at Crazy Acreas, well it will be soon. Carlene has an open door policy!"


I AM GLAD TO PROVIDE  THE  VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE FOR ALOT OF CLASSROOMS AROUND THE COUNTRY...IT IS WONDERFUL WHEN ALL GOES WELL.... BUT I HOPE THE TEACHERS HAVE  ONE TINY THOUGHT FOR   WHAT HAPPENS WHEN NATURE DECIDES SOMETHING ELSE????
