AUG 10 2016
ALL 8 ARE DOING FINE...  WE HAD 2 ALMOSTS THAT MADE IT....-- #7 WAS BORN WITH AN UNUSUAL AMOUNT OF RED BLOOD- AND TOOK A WHILE (6HOURS?) TO NURSE... THE #8  BORN GREEN ( NOT UNUSUAL) HAD AN UNUSUAL  BREATHING PROBLEM-- NOW SEEMS TO BE STRAIGHTENED OUT..  AND THE JUMBLED MASS OF PUPS SEEM ALL ON EQUAL FOOTING- THERE WAS ONE MORE PUP BORN AFTER WE GAVE THE PIT SHOT AND IT WAS DOA.. NO MUSCLE TONE AND SLIGHTLY BLUE...
SO WE HAVE 8- ALL NAMED AFTER CLASSIC AUTHORS... I THINK.... NOT BEING UP ON THE CLASSICS...

 TO COMPLETE THE FIELD..... ]WE HAVE  8 PLUS    NOEL'S 4 AND ONE PUP " CHANDLER"   DONATED BY  "MARIE" FROM FLORIDA
WILL BE VERY INTERESTING-- ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SHAPE RIGHT NOW....BUT SEEING AS THE SHAPE CHANGES ON A DAILY BASIS  WE NEED TO WAIT 4 MONTHS BEFORE WE SEE WHAT WE HAVE..
COULD BE A NEW BUNCH OF GENES-- WE WILL SEE..

SPEAKING OF MASCULINE APPENDAGE TYPE DOGS..  JUDY TOOK WILBUR HOME - TO SWAMPSCOTT--LAST NIGHT.-- HUSBAND AWAY -- WORKS FOR DELTA-- SO HEAVEN KNOWS WHERE HE IS WITH THEIR COMPUTER GLITCHES... GROMMET LEAVES TODAY-- DON'T KNOW IF MORIAH IS PREGO OR NOT...  BUT SHE SHOULD BE THE NEXT...
IN THE MEANTIME GUSSIE AND  A COUPLE OTHERS HAVE COME IN HEAT - AND I LET THEM GO BY- WE ARE GETTING  INTO THE SITUATION WHICH CAUSED THE 4 LITTERS AT ONCE... IS MORIAH PREGNANT?  WE WON'T KNOW FOR 25 DAYS WHEN WE CAN DO AN ULTRASOUND ( OR GEORGE CAN FEEL...)  IF SHE IS NOT.. WE NEED TO BREED ANOTHER TO KEEP OUR "PUPS EVERY 2 MONTHS GOAL.

I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW IF I HAVE TEH PERMIT OR NOT... THE BI SAID IT WAS READY AS LONG  AS I REGISTERED THE ZBA  DECISION WITH DEEDS... AND THE LAWYER SAID I DIDN'T HAVE TO -- SO I FINALLY GOT THE TWO TALKING TO EACH OTHER AND GOT A RESPONSE I DON'T UNDERSTAND-- BUT SEEING AS I HAD EYEDROPS IN MY EYES YESTERDAY FROM AN EXAM, I COULD NT DRIVE AND GET TO THE TOWN HALL ANYWAY..  I WILL TRY TODAY...

SOMEHOW I WILL FEEL ALOT BETTER TO BE DIGGING HOLES AND BUILDING SOMETHING.  I HEAR THE SINK IS OUT AGAIN...- AH WELL.. LITTLE PRICE TO PAY FOR  BEING ALLOWED TO  DO WHAT YOU WANT ON YOUR OWN PROPERTY.  IT WOULD SAVE  BENDING OVER...

AS I SIT HERE AND WAIT FOR THE MAIL TO BRING THE $18,000 CHECK FROM MEMSAIC FOR TEH CHICKEN BRICKS.. I AM THRILLED TO SEE PEOPLE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT WHAT WE ALREADY 
HAVE ( LIKE OPALS 8)
 IT IS $18,000 AND CHANGE BECAUSE WE DID HAVE SOME QUICKPICKS WHICH  ARE "BOUGHT" AT MAILCALL AND THE MONEY  DEPOSITED HERE..PLUS MEMSAIC DOES ALL THE CREDIT CARD STUFF AND GETS 10%
IT IS THE MOST AMAZING DEAL WE COULD HAVE...
EXCEPT FOR MAYBE THE CAMERAS IN THE FIRST PLACE...

DID I MENTION GETTING  PAPERS  WITH AN OFFICIAL STAMP ON THEM FOR THE BUILDING? WELLLLL...
I KNOW IT WAS MENTIONED THAT I NEEDED TO INSULATE THE BUILDING IF WE WERE TO HAVE WATER IN IT..-- OK... SO   BECAUSE I NEED AN INTERIOR WALL OF CONCRETE BLOCK, THE ARCHITECT  PUT A 6" WALL OUTSIDE THAT-- BECUSE EXTERIOR WALLS ARE NO LONGER 4" THICK.. BUT 6"   ----ADD A CONCRETE BLOCK 8" AND YOU HAVE 14" THICK WALLS
WITHTHE HELP OF ALL THE CP'S I BEGAN TO FIND INSULATED CONCRETE BLOCKS-- WIERD INTERIOR SHAPE STUFFED WITH STYROPHOME  ?OMNI BLOCKS?  AND THEY HAVE AN R  OF 20... THEN I NEEDED A STAMPED FORM SAYING R OF 20.. I HAVE HAD IT.. SO I WENT TO EBAY, AND BOUGHT A STAMPER "EMBOSSER"  WHICH HAS  A COMPANY NAME INVOLVING BRICKS- SO I AM SET TO STAMP WHATEVER THEY WANT.

CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF I WANTED TO PUT IN AN OUTHOUSE???  I CAN HEAR IT NOW...
I HAVE ONE STORY ABOUT A QUANTITY OF URINE   ---IT WAS PRODUCED BY A HORSE......  WE HAD A HORSE ONSTAGE AT A BOSTON THEATER-- A DRAFT HORSE--DUKE-- WONDERFUL ANIMAL-- UNFLAPPABLE... HAD BEEN IN THE LEAD TEAM OF WALT DISNEY WITH DICK-- HOWEVR THE STAGE ONLY REQUIRED ONE..SO DUKE IT WAS.. ALL 2000 POUNDS OF HIM-  AND THE THEATER CALLED FOR A MINI DONKEY TOO.. DUKE AN DDONKEY WERE ON ONE SIDE THE STAGE  WITH MY FRIEND  LINDA...AND I WAS ON THE OTHER...  THE DONKEY WAS LEAD OUT-- SONGS SUNG AND HE CAME ACROSS THE SET AND I HELPD HIM... LOOKING STRAIGHT ACROSS-- BEHIND THE CURTAINS, I NOTICES A BIT OF A FLURRY GOING ON WITH DUKE    .. BUT I WAS STUCK... THENIT ALL QUIETED DOWN- AND DUKE CAME ON STAGE AND DID HIS THING.. WHATEVER.. AND ACROSS TO ME...
AFTER THE  CURTAIN CALL... I GOT OVER THERE TO FIND OUT DUKE HAD SPREAD HIS LEGS AND LOOKED LIKE HE WAS GOING TO PEE..   MY HELPER-- LINDA-- WONDERFUL CREATIVE SOUL. KNEW HORSES AND GRABBED FOR THE NEAREST  THING TO SOP UP THE DELUGE... MY BRAND NEW LL BEAN JACKET  TO START CATCHING IT ALL   THEN GRABBED FOR A SMALL SCRAP BASKET TO GET THE REST
HE GOT DONE AND FELT MUCH BETTER-- PERFECT PERFORMANCE....

THAT WAS NOT THE ONLY  REMARKABLE EPISODE THAT NIGHT... WE GOT THRU- AND THE PARKING THEY SAID THEY HAD ORGANIZED FOR ME GOT ME $90 IN TICKETS AS I  TOOK UP 3 PARKING PLACES WITH THE 50' LONG TRUCK AND TRAILER.
THEN MY JACKET- WASHED, HUNG OUTSIDE FOR THE REST OF THE WINTER- AND WAS FINE THE NEXT YEAR.


THUS ENDETH......
