OCT 14 2016

I sent the following text to Meg this morning but wanted to make sure you saw it too. Feel free to use it in the dd tomorrow if you want. 

We went to the Topsfield commons and then out to dinner last night. He did great at the Commons and even made it up the hill by the white church one time. When we were cruising down the street all by ourselves, I teared up. I haven't been able to do anything like that since Spot died since it takes so much energy. All I can say is thank you but that doesn't begin to express how grateful I am for you, Carlene, SDP, and especially Zep. 🐶❤️

THEY ARE LEAVING NOW AS I TYPE...  I KNOW BECASUE LOGAN IS BARKING AT THEM...-- I NEVER GOT TO SEE ALLISON... COMEDY OF ERORS...  SHE HAD TROUBLE GETTING DOWN THE HILL FROM THE GUEST HOUSE AND I HAD TROUBLE GETTING  UP  THERE...
SO WE ARE  "SHIPS THAT PASS IN THE NIGHT"......  THEY ARE ON THEIR WAY BACK TO NORTH CAROLINA
WITH HER NEW DOG   ZEP... WHO I AM TOLD IS PERFECT.  WITH THE ONE EXCEPTION THAT HE TAKES A FEW MINUTES TO WAKE UP AND GET INTO FULL STEAM-- SHE CAN COPE WITH THAT...
************
PHOTO SHOOT WENT WELL YESTERDAY-- WE DID 2 AT TEH CRANES ESTATE-- IT IS  SOMETHING ELSE...CAN BE GOOGLED.. I AM TOLD IT CAN BE RENTED FOR WEDDINGS FOR $40,000 FOR 4 HOURS JUST IN CASE ANY OF YOU ARE IN NEED OF THAT INFO....  THERE IS ALSO AN "INN AT CASTLE HILL" BASICALLY THE ULTIMATE B&B- WITH  10 ROOMS COSTING ABOUT $300-$500 PER NIGHT-- OR THE ENTIRE INN FOR $4000-- AND IT IS NOT KID FRIENDLY,,,   A FAR CRY FROM MOTEL 6.
********
I WILL FIND MY PHONE TODAY- 
THE REASON I KNOW IS YESTERDAY I REPORTED IT LOST AND THEY ARE SENDING ME ANOTHER TODAY..
 I HAVE PROVEN IT DOES NOT WORK LEAVING IT IN MY CAR  BECAUSE THAT INSIGNIFICANT  TINY BATTERY  WAS DRAINING MY LARGE CAR'S BATTERY OVERNIGHT. - AND MY CAR IS REALLY A TRUCK UNDERNEATH...  BIG.... 
SO THAT DIDN'T WORK.
I AM STRUGGLING   TO DEFEND MYSELF AGAINST THE INSANITY OF TECHNOLOGY.  I DO NOT SEEM TO BE ABLE TO KEEP IT CHARGED IN ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO MAKE PHONE CALLS FROM MY CAR... WHICH IS WHERE I NEED IT.
FYI....
ON THE TOPIC OF CAR BATTERIES --- I SEE MY CAR AS A N EMERGENCY GENERATOR- FAR EASIER TO GET AROUND THAN DRAGGIING A 200 POUND GASOLINE THING THAT HAS A PULL ROPE START. 
IN MY CAR I HAVE AN " INVERTER"  -- NOT EXPENSIVE----WOULD NOT RUN MUCH... BUT ENOUGH TO BE USEFUL-- FLOODLIGHTS-- PA SYSTEMS-- OIL FURNACE...  ETC.....
  I HAVE    ALSO A GREAT WAD OF LEAD PAINTED YELLOW ... WITH CORDS TO HEFT ONTO THE ENGINE AND CAUSE TEH BATTERY NOT  TO BE DEAD...  WEIGHS A TON... SO HEAVY THAT IT IS NOT REALLY USEFUL  AND YOU TRIP OVER IT  ( NO TRUNK)
**THEN I FOUND.. I THINK IT WAS HAMMERCHER SCHLEMMER ---A COMPACT- LEATHER CASE - NOT ALOT BIGGER THAN THE PHONE  WHICH I CAN'T FIND--    I AM SHOCKED AND AMAZED--IT HAS  WORKED TWICE NOW  TO JUMP START MY CAR  WHEN  THE BATTERY IS DEAD FROM TRYING TO KEEP MY PHONE CHARGED.  FITS IN THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT.  DARN GOOD.

THAT OTHER YELLOW SUITCASE THING IS LIKE THE ADVERTZEMENTS  ON TV FOR A FLASHLIGHT YOU CAN BOIL IN WATER OR DROP FROM A HELICOPTER--   IF THAT IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO WITHA FLASHLIGHT.., THE THING IS SO CUMBERSOM  YOU WOULD NEVER BE CARRYING IT ON THE ODD CHANCE THAT YOU WOULD BE FALLING FROM A HELICOPTER.  IT IS SIMPLER JUST TO STAY OUT OF HELICOPERS...

WHICH BRINGS TO MIND CARRYING THINGS IN A POCKETBOOK.. OR GEROGE'S BACKPACKS THAT YOU MIGHT NEED.
THAT WHOLE CONCEPT CAN GET OUT OF HAND.  A REALLY IMAGINATIVE PERSON   CAN SEE REASON TO LOAD HIM DOWN WITH A CAR BATTERY CHARGER, HAMMER, DICTIONARY AND FIRST AID KIT.
PERSONALLY , I SUFFER FROM THIS PROBLEM-- WHICH IS WHY MY PHONE IS MISSING...  I HAVE PUT IT SOMEWHERE.
BUT  CLEANING OUT LOOKING FOR  HAS CAUSED ME TO QUESTION  WHAT EXACTLY IS NECESSARY IN AN EMERGENCY? 
I NEED TO STUDY THAT..
THE SCOTTISH  "ROPE WITH A RING" IS HIGH ON MY LIST ....EVEN WITHOUT USING  IT AS A LEASH.
*****
MAYBE GE IS COMING TODAY ..M WITH A CREW TO CLEAN UP THE WALK THRU THE WOODS...  THERE IS A PLACE WHERE A SMALL STREAM MIGHT HAVE FLOWED IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS WE HAD RAIN ETC.. BUT I KNOW WTH T DONKEYS WILL NOT CROSS IT THE WAY IT IS.. AND   BIKERS  HAVE TRIED TO BUILD A BRIDGE OVER IT LEAVING BOARDS AND NAILS ALL OVER.. SO YESTRDAY I BOUGHT A COUPLE SHOVELS ( I CAN'T GET THE TRACTOR OUT THERE... WE TOO K OUT THE LARGE PIPE CULVERT THAT WAS IN THE V PEN AS A PUPPY TOY.. HOPEFULLY TODAY WE CAN COVER IT.... NO.... THEY CAN  COVER IT AND PICK UP ALL THE BOARDS AND NAILS..  WE WILL HAVE A GOOD "WALKABOUT"   TRAIL...

Team Hunter & Wendy added 3 photos and a video. TO FACEBOOK EPW SITE..

Today, 3 years ago, Hunter's life, our life, changed...Wendy became part of our family! Who knows where Hunter would be if Wendy hadn't chosen him....I would rather not think about it. It happened so quickly and was not always easy, but they have both worked really hard to get to where they are 
 today...an amazing team! Poor Wendy is getting gray already (hopefully taking some of mine), because of Hunter, but I don't think she would want it any other way!💜They have experienced many things in 3 years, from the good, bad, and ugly, but have always done it together. Wendy has allowed 
 Hunter to be stronger and more independent and it has been an amazing journey. And it all started at servicedogproject.org! Without Carlene, Megan & Steve, all the volunteers and, last but not least, the CPs, Team Hunter & Wendy would not be possible. Thank you, to each and every one of you, for 
 bringing up Wendy to be amazing service dog and allowing her to be part of Hunter's life. They are quickly growing up together and may they have many more adventures to come!

Carlene THERE IS ALSO A VIDEO ON  FACEBOOK EPW   OF WENDY AND HUNTER WALKING IN A STORE. I HOPE SOME ONE ELSE KNOWS HOW TO BRING IT OVER.

Hi Carlene
Just got back from the big VA hospital in Boston from my annual appointment.  I was amazed of how relaxed and calm Emmett was this time, being a year of working together. He went from a scared, shaking dog, who ran into a room to hide to one dog who was so relaxed he was snoring.

  2. Thank you for your miracle Doctor Osemu Okpamen

    This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures any diseases & sickness. You could contact him via email at { Doctorokpamenspelltemple@yahoo.com } or visit his website http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com or reach him on +1 (914)-517-3229, +2348135254384.
