OCT 10 2016
BLESSED BE THE  RAINMAKERS !  WE ARE FINALLY DRENCHED...I AM NOT SURE WE CAN  GO BACK TO CONSTANT  FLUFFY WASH..RENEWAL-- TEH SHAKE AND FLUFF SEEMS TO BE AN ADEQUATE SOLUTION...-- AS IS TEH SCRUB AND RINSE IN THE OUTDOOR KENNELS  INSTEAD OF POWERWASHING-- IS A WATER SAVER TOO.
I AM ANXIOUS TO SEE  WHAT THE OFFECT IT HAS ON OUR $1000 A MONTH WATER BILL--  (?AFFECT?? EFFECT?? IF I MISTYPE IT AS OFFECT YOU GET TO TAKE YOUR CHOICE..) 
***
DONKEYS
I TOTALLY FORGOT THE 10:30 SUNDAY DONKEY MARCH... WHICH A GROUP DID IN THE ARENA- AND IT WAS PRETTY FUNNY, AS TEH DONKEYS ARE NOT YET USED TO THE PERFORMANCE--

  WILL THEY LEARN?  DONKEYS ARE VERY BRIGHT- AND PRACTICAL... I USED TO DRIVE 8 LIKE THE BUDWEISERS IN PARADES FOR CHRISTMAS-- EVENTUALLY I DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO PUT ON  THE REINS, PUT A BIG STUFFED BEAR ON TEH DRIVERS SEAT AND    SAT ON THE BACK OF THE WAGON-- TEH DONKEYS KNEW THEY WERE TO WANDER UP THE MIDDLE OF THE  STREET--  IT WAS THE ONLY SAFE PLACE TO BE WITH ALL THOSE PEOPLE JUMPING UP AND DOWN WAVING THINGS AND YELLING ALONG EACH SIDE...

I REMEMBER THE FIRST PALM SUNDAY JOB WE DID WITH MARY--   WE MAY HAVE THOUGHT PALMS.... MARY SAW THEM AS WHIPS... ALONG WITH HAVING  NEVER BEEN RIDDEN BEFORE, SHE HAD TO CARRY SOME KID IN A WHITE BATHROBE.
MARY WAS WONDERFUL-- JUST KEEP THOSE CARROTS COMING....

ANOTHER GREAT PARADE WAS -- NOT BEING TRAINED  TO DRIVE- WE HAD ONE PRACTICE RUN WITH  EARLENE INTHE TILLER SEAT OF "THE HALF  FAST FIRE DEPARTMENT" 'S LADDER TRUCK.  AND WENT ON TO DO SEVERAL PARADESW WITH THAT RIG... IT WAS PRETTY FUNNY---  THE PIECES ARE STILL AROUND HERE... EXCEPT NONE OF THE DONKEYS HERE  ARE  AS FORGIVING AS MARY... YET...
**********
THERE IS AT LEAST ONE MEDIA  CREW DUE HERE TODAY-- YOU MAY SEE THEM ON CAMERA- I FORGET  WHO OR WHY... BUT SEEING AS IT DOES NOT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE IF THEY ARE HERE  OR NOT... OUR DAILY LIFE GOES ON.

*****
 WELL LIFE  DOES GO ON.....   EXCEPT GRACE IS LEAVING FOR EUROPE--- SHE HAS RELATIVES THERE- SO OUR LIFE WILLBE MUCH MORE DIFFICULT WITHOUT GRACE'S STEADY HAND...  SHE HAS LEFT A MULTITUDE OF INSTRUCTIONS OF HOW TO....  SIGNS ARE PLASTERED ALL OVER THE PLACE....- WELL---   ALMOST ALL OVER.....
THERE ARE DETAILS ...YOU WOULD NOT EXPECT---LIKE TEH GUINNEA HENS DO NOT EAT CHICK STARTER-- BUT NEED TURKEY STARTER--- AND SHE HAS BOTH IN MATCHING GARBAGE CANS--  EXCEPT NOT HAVING FED CHICKENS LATELY, I DON'T KNOW WHICH IS WHICH...  SO FIRST THING I NEED TO DO  IS GO BUY MORE AND LEAVE THEM INTHE LABELED BAGS SO WE DON'T MAKE AN ERROR...
THERE ARE DETAILS OF SMALL   FARM MANAGEMENT THAT  ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO ANTICIPATE.
 ALL OF A SUDDEN.... I AM THINKING.. I NEVER DID SEE THE HAY TRUCK ARRIVE WITH HAY LAST FRIDAY- AND NOT BEING UP IN THE HAY LOFT ON A REGULAR BASIS, I DON'T KNOW WHAT  IS UP THERE...    THIS IS HOLIDAY AND TEH HAY STORE IS CLOSED TODAY, BUT I CAN PROBABLY GO STEAL SOME BACK FROM JANINE-- SEEING  AS HER HORSE IS HERE ANYWAY...
THESE ARE COMPLICATIONS THAT DEFY  A NORMAL BUSINESS "PLAN"  
****

SO ON WE GO...
