july 22 2016
ariot managed to get a  leg up...
except in this case it was teh right leg of a new puppy toy
and teh  "up" was out of her tummy.
that is it for teh  friday morning vomit report
at least so far.
**********
these new cameras will take some getting used to-  they are the latest and once officially hooked up, seem to work perfectly-and the sound... in the barn... will be a mixed blessing.. grace is putting together a big swear bear for the barn... when a horse steps on your  foot-- as does happen--  some unusual language may be heard...   we will see how it goes..   a donkey brayng at 2am might be amusing  once or twice... but.....
 the one "old camera"  the nursery cam which has been so reliable is the only one out thsi morning...
*****
there is a donkey camera... and it does work beautifully... now they have to  "DO SOMETHING"  to make it available...
*********
pups are beginning to understand that the noise of the grinder means food is being prepared..  puring puppy foode and goats milk in a messy goo....  they are all gaining nicely.
****
speaking of purina... they  sent another batch of  200 bags of  great food... and .. we .. "sdp we"  unloaded and stashed it in the container in 23 minutes -- got to be some kind of record....
which brings to mind......
there was a slight panic ( by me) trying to find the  fork lift type "fingers" that attach to the buchet to lift the pallet of food out of the truck...-to be minus them would nhave been no disaster--- i had not realized  with enough people, it might have added 2 minutes to have teh chain  of people start in the truck and forget tthe tractor...( would that be called a food chain?)
which brings to  my other mind.....
there is a problem around here---simple example.... if a small  nail is sticking out somewhere in a dog area...  that could be dangerous to  a dog , there is an instinct to walk all the way to the tool shed to get a hammer, when one bang with a rock would solve the problem....   deciding to do something the  absolutely correct way-is a lovely concept.. but... say that nail was in a dog pen, going  for a hammer would be wrong...  the dog could be hurt while you wonder which hammer to get from the tool shed...when a rock would work.

we had almost that yesterday when oscar( black dog)  got left by the t tent with minimal shade.. taking the time to get a kennel ready with new fluffies would be wrong... take the dog with you immediately to the air conditioning. 

 if there is an animal that needs attention, you don't have them wait while you finish folding laundry.....
prioritize  is teh word of the day
****
we have some desparate  calendar thinking to do... william is working  in some foreign country  like wisconsin  for a month or so...  AGGGHHHHHHHHHH
****
we are making great progress in general, but the details  that are falling behind are driving me nuts....

*****
linda called annie last night..
I JUST SPOKE TO ANNIE.  HER SPEAK WAS CLEAR AND UNDERSTANDABLE.  SHE HAS PT AND OT.  AS PART OF HER PT SHE GOES TO THE GROCERY STORE.
SHE PLANS ON VISITING WITH STEVE SOON.  SHE MISSES EVERYONE.


I TOLD HER EVERYONE MISSES HER, INCLUDING THE DONKEYS!  I ALSO TOLD HER TO CALL ANYTIME IF ANY OF US CAN DO ANYTHING FOR HER.
