SEPT 26 2016

WE HAVE HAD SOOOO MANY KIND WORDS ABOUT DOGFEST....  IT WAS DIFFERENT-- AS WE ALWAYS STRIVE TO BE...-- MIND BOGGLING????
WITHOUT A DOUBT..... I DID NOT SEE ONE PERSON WITH A COMPLAINT !!!! 
HIGHLIGHTS WERE 
TEH  BIZZARRE SPIRIT STICK PARADE... PEOPLE HAD SENT IN PICTURES OR WHATEVER - ATTACHED TO A PAINT STIRRER WHICH WE DISPLAYED AND THEN HAD A MARCH ,100 PEOPLE   HOLDING EACH  OF TEH 200+ TO THE CAMERA BEFOREE PUTTING THEM IN THE FIRE, THUSLY  CASTING THEIR SPIRITS TO THE WINDS OF  CRAZY ACRES... /NUTS???  YUP....
TO THE REAL INDIAN POW WOW - IN FULL HEADRESS WE  DANCED TO THE BEAT OF THE DRUMS AND SAW A MARRIAGE CEREMONY BETWEEN WALTER AND NOEL-- GARY ( OF ACTUAL INDIAN HERITAGE) -WAS  THE CHIEF -- HE TOLD OF MANY OF THE INDIAN RITUALS-- ALL SEEMED VERY LOGICAL  CONCENTRATING ON HARMONY WITH THE EARTH...
THE WILD CONFUSION OF TEH DONKEY EPISODE.. WAS AN UNEXPECTED DELIGHT.  ..JANINE BROUGHT HER 3 OVER AND ADDED THEM TO OUR BUNCH- SO WE HAD SEVERAL LOOK ALIKES-- PROBLEM THEN BECAME  WHICH BABY WHENT WITH WHICH  MOMMY-- NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN GET WRONG WITH OUT  BIG PROBLEMS.  AND WE HAD IT WRONG FOR ABOUT 5 LONG MINUTES.  JANINE HAD PLANNED THAT TH E BUNCH WOULD BE CONTROLLED BY  THESE FRYING PANS WE USE TO GIVE THEM TREATGS AND SNACKS... AND IT WOULD HAVE ... IF THE MOMMY'S HAD THEIR CORRECT BABY--
THE BABIES BEGAN TO PARTY AND RUN AROUND WITH DISTRAUGHT MOTHERS DRAGGING SOMEONE AROUND-- WITH HORSES IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A DISASTER.. WITH DONKEYS IT WAS LESS INCLINED TO BE A PROBLEM--- BUT IT WAS UNCONTROLLED AND FUNNY.
MANY PEOPLE HAD NEVER EVEN TOUCHED A DONKEY BEFORE AND HAD BEEN GIVEN THESE PURPLE FRYING PANS  WITHOUT MANY INSTRUCTIONS AS TO WHAT  TO DO WITH THEM... THE ENTIRE PICTURE WAS DELIGHTFUL.
**********
LORD KNOWS  THE FOOD EXCEEDED EVERYONE'S EXPEXTATIONS...  FOR CONTENT AND QUANTITY.. WE HAD FOOD !!  THERE ARE THINGS WE LEARN EVERY DOGFEST--- AND THIS WAS NO DIFFERENT...  SOMEHOW WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE SURE TO INVITE SANDY..... IF SHE IS NOT AN  ITALIAN WOMAN-  SHE ACTS LIKE A REAL ONE.... BECAUSE OF THEIR INSTINCT TO KEEP EACH TABLE AND PLATE FULL OF GREAT  FOOD AT ALL TIMES...  I EVEN SAW GEORGE (DVM.. GEORGE)GO BACK FOR MORE OF HER MEATBALLS  WHICH WERE GRANDMA'S RECIPIE...
ALL THAT WAS ON TOP OF THE LOBSTER CLAMBAKE WITH TRAYS OF SALAD  AND CORN ON THE COB. AND THAT CAKE....
THERE IS ALOT I MISSED OUT ON THE DETAILS....
I NEVER FOUND OUT WHO SENT THAT  MAMOUTH EDITTABLE ARRAINGEMENT  WHICH GOT STRIPPED PRETTY FAST.
BEST PART IS EVERYONE DID EVERYTHING-- THE "PURPLE SHIRTS" RAN THE DEAL- CHECKING WITH ME ONLY FOR EXECUTIVE DECISIONS... LIKE "SHALL WE SET THE CAKE ON THAT TABLE?"   
2 BIG SPIRIT STICK DISPLAY "UNITS" GOT MADE AND PUT TO USE...  NOW STRIPPED, THEY LOOK NAKED.. EXCEPT  --- IF WE LEAN THEM UP AGAINST THE LAUNDRY BUILDING THEY WOULD BE PERFECT CLOTHES HANGING DEVICES....FOR AIRING INSTEAD OF WASHING  NOT REALLY DIRTY FLUFFIES.
*******
 I REALLY JUST WANDERED AROUND ON THE GOLF CART WITH  THE PUPPY ( WHO HAS NO OFFICIAL NAME YET EXCEPT PHOENIX)
*****
ONE BAD DETAIL WAS  GRACE ENDED UP SITTING WITH THE PUPPIES WHEN WE DID THE VOLUNTEERS PHOTO... SO---- MARK.. CAN YOU STRIP HER IN  SOMEHOW... I FEEL BADLY ABOUT THAT... SHE IS SUCH A BACKBONE OF THE ENTIRE   SDP-- THE WORST ONE TO OVERLOOK...
****** 
THE BUILDING GOT GOING  UP 4 COURSES OF BLOCKS..2 GUYS AND JACK... PLUS SEVERALL VOLUNTEERS- THEY NEVER EXPECTED A LOBSTER DINNER WITH THE JOB....17 HOURS IN 2 DAYS-- PLANNED SAME FOR NEXT WEEKEND...
GOT TO HAVE A  FYI  -- MORTAR MIX AND CONCRETE ARE MUCH DIFFERENT-- THE MORTAR MIX DOES NOT HAVE THE  HURRY UP FACTOR LIKE CONCRETE--I WATCHED AS THEY MIXED THAT IIN THE WHEELBARROW- I EXECTED THEM TO HAVE TO HURRY BEFORE IT SET.. NOT SO WITH MORTAR MIX...
IFT WAS MUCH MORE CASUAL -- NO RUSH...
2 GUYS -- GOOD WORKERS....  BACK NEXT WEEKEND.
********
MARK GOT SOME  WONDERFUL PHOTO OPS-- WHICH HE WILL SORT THRU EVENTUALLY-- IT TAKES A WHILE-- I BET HE AS 10,000 PICTURES TO GO THRU... BETWEEN CAMERA AND DRONE CAMERA...
HE IS ORGANIZED---   DETALS  LIKE ----TO MANAGE TO HAVE THE DRONE 'S BATTERIES FULLY CHARGED F RO THE EVENT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZRE ME.  AND EARLY SANDY IS A BIG HELP TOO... SHE HAS THAT SAME MIND.... DON'T FORGET HE COOKED HAMBERGERS TOO AT SOME POINT.
AND FOUND APPROPRIATE MUSINC-- WHIHC IF YOU LISENED TO THE  WORDS OF HIS DOG MUSIC, INVOLVED SNIFFING REARS AND STEPPING IN WHAT DOGS LEAVE BEHIND....-- WHERE DOES HE FIND THIS STUFF?????
*********
EVERYONE STOPPED BY TO THANK ME--  WHICH WAS CERRTAINLY VERY NICE-- BUT  I THINK ALL KNEW-- THIS WAS AN EPISODE  MADE POSSIBLE ONLY BECAUSE OF THE DONATIONS TO THE CHICKENBRICKS... WHICH IS  MADE POSSIBLE BY EXPLORE.ORG... DOG BLESS YOU  AND CHARLIE OUT THERE IN CALIFORNIA.... ---- SEVERAL MADE REFERENCE TOTHE "SDP FAMILY"  OF CP'S.. WHICH IT CERTAINLY RESEMBLES... (WITHOUT ANY FAMILY SQUABBLES ) ONE SAID "DID I EVER THINK......? "   NO... HOW COULD I EVER KNOW THAT THIS EXPLORE.ORG  ORGANIZATION WOULD  ENCOURAGE SO MUCH PARTICIPATION WITHOUT ANY COMMERCIALISM...   SELLING ONLY  THE EXPERIENCE OF  EDUCATON AND ENTERTAINMENT MINUS THE ADVERTIZEMENTS ABOUT  BLOCKED DRAINS AND BUG KILLERS. 
MANY PEOPLE ASKED HOW I GOT INVOLVED WITH  DOG BLESS YOU  AND EXPLORE.ORG...
I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW.   .... AND  ...  I HAVEN'T HAD TIME TO ASK.

  1. CARLENE: FOR THE NAME OF YOUR PUPPY, I SUGGEST "LEESI" OR "LEESA" IF YOU'RE NOT KEEN ON "PHOENIX". AFTER THE IDENTIFYING PHOTOS OF THE THE SNAILS WERE TAKEN, "NHTEACH" MADE A FUNNY FROM THE PICTURE OF YOUR GIRL (https://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/3892/1734/original.jpg) REFERENCING THE GAME OF THRONES PSEUDO-QUEEN TITLE "KHALEESI". (PS: I'M NOT ASHAMED TO SAY I DIDN'T GET THE REFERENCE AND HAD TO LOOK IT UP.) THREE SYLLABLES CAN BE A BIT MUCH WHEN CALLING A DOG, BUT THE LAST TWO MAKE A PLEASANT, EASY, AND CLEARLY FEMININE NAME.
