JUNE 17 2016
WE DID IT !! 
UNANIMOUS DECISION TO OVERTURN THE DENIAL OF A BUILDING PERMIT.  SO WE WON....
WE HAD A VERY RESPECTABLE SHOWING-- AND IT WAS KIND OF FUN TO SEE US ALL IN SOME SETTING OTHER THAN THE FARM.

I WAS TOLD TO SIT AND STAY-- BY DON...  OUR VERY RESPECTABLE LAWYER WHO HAD DONE HIS HOMEWORK AND WAS WELL EQUIPT WITH THE LAWS INVOLVING DOGS...NO WHERE DID THE CURRENT LAWS RESTRICT THE NUMBER OF DOGS KEPT BY THE OWNER - OR LEESE OF THE PROPERTY.
SITTING SILENT  WAS VERY DIFFICULT..  THE ONLY REASON I SUCCEEDED WAS I COULD NOT HEAR WHAT  MOST OF THE COMPALINTS WERE ABOUT..
BUT I HEARD A FEW... THERE WERE ALOT OF SPEAKERS...I WAS IMPRESSED WTH THE PROCESS OF LETTING EVERYONE SPEAK WHO WANTED TO.... I HOPE TEH MEMBERS OF THE BOARD ARE PAID BY THE HOUR... THE 5 OF THEM SAT.... STONEFACED MOST OF THE TIME. I COULD NOT DO THEIR JOB.

ONE COMENT  I WAS PARTICULARLY FOND OF WAS THE REALLY ANGRY NEIGHBOR- NOT OF THE HOME OWNERS ASSOC... HE  REFERRED TO THE ARENA ( AND ME) AS THE WHITE MONSTER.
MY OVERALL IMPRESSION WAS - A GROUP OF  THE HOMEOWNERS WAS CHURNNED INTO A FURRY BY THE LAWYER- WHO DID NOT HAVE MANY FACTS STRAIGHT BUT CHARGED BY THE HOUR...HE APPARENTLY  THREATENED ME-- WHICH UNFORTUNATELY I DID NOT HEAR BUT THE CHAIR CALLED HIM ON IT.

I DID HEAR HIM SAY DOGFEST  AND PARTIES WITH NOISE AND LIQUOR -- 
AND HOW ½ TH E PLACE WAS USED BY DONKEY RESCUE... PER THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER.  HE WQS NOT  WELL PREPARED-- ONLY HAD "BUZZ WORDS" TO INFLAME.  TO USE A NEWSPAPER FOR  REFERENCE IN AN ARGUEMENT  WAS CLASSIC--IF I HAD AN INFIRMARY WHAT WAS TO STOP IT FROM BEING A VETERNARY OFFICE?
GEORGE WAS THERE AND SPOKE WELL-- THANK YOU    HE ADDED A GREAT DEAL.
IT IS GOING TO BE AN ONGOING PROBLEM UNLESS WE CAN GET TO THE HOMEOWNERS ASSOC WITHOUT THAT LAWYER DISTORTING EVERYTHING SO HE CAN CHARGE THEM  TO DRAG ME IN  OVER COMPLAINTS.. SO THAT IS MY JOB TODAY-- TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THESE PEOPLE INVOLVED.

THEY COMPLAINED ABOUT MY CLEARING THE BRUSH FOR PARKING-- WHEN  THE DEVELEPOMENT OF THEIR "NEIGHBORHOOD" INVOLVED CRASHING DOWN 100 YEAR OLD TREES WITH A HUGE THUMP.
I WOULD LOVE TO DEBATE THE BUNCH WITHOUT BEING CONSTRAINED BY MY  LAWYER...
THERE WERE SO AMNY THINGS.


THERE HAS TO BE SOME STRATIGIC PLANNING OR WE WILL BE AT IT REGULARLY  AS THAT LAWYER GETS THEM TO HIRE HIM  TO DRAG US AROUND.
SO FAR WE ARE GOLDEN.

THIS IS THE KIND OF THING KITTY  WOULD BE GOOD AT--- (KITTY OF CALENDAR FAME.) SHE IS WELL BEHAVED..

THERE WAS AN AWFUL LOT OF THAT BOOK 'TRIBE" INVOLVED... THESE PEOPLE WERE COMFORTABLE IN A GROUP IN ATTACK MODE- 
WE HAVE OT WORK ON THAT..

WE ALSO SHOULD REPLACE THAT SIGN ON THE  HILL FACING THEIR DEVELOPEMENT--  MAYBE NOT REPLACE -- BUT REDESIGN AND UPDATE...  BULLETIN BOARD???? WHITE BOARD???? PARTY ANNOUNCEMJENTS??   SOMETHING;
**********
AND CAKE DAY COMETH ******** SUNDAY IS THE 19TH !!***


I HAVE AN EYE DOCTOR APT THIS MORNING... I WILL HAVE TO PROP OPEN MY EYELIDS WITH TOOTHPICKS.
