OCT 23 2016
I HAVE VERY FEW EXQUISITE  POSSESSIONS.. ONE IS A BACK SCRATCHER--- GIVEN TO ME BY THE VETERAN-- FROM MAINE ---TO WHOM WE GAVE ?GEORGIA-- HIS HOBBY/BUSINESS WAS FINISHING SOME VERY EXOTIC WOODS  INTO  USEFUL ITEMS... HENCE MY BACKSCRATCHER..
IF ANY OF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PERFECT GIFT FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS EVERYTHING  I COULD DIG OUT HIS NAME AND SEE IF HE IS STILL IN THE BUSINESS.  IT IS A THING OF BEAUTY .

ANOTHER WONDERFUL GIFT FOR SOMEONE WITH  AN AWFUL LOT OF STUFF TO BEGIN WITH... IS A TOOTHPICK HOLDER --ONE OF BETSY'S FRIENDS ( JEWELERY MAKING BETSY / SCARLOTT)  COPIED WHAT WAS IN  MY FAMILY DINING ROOM  LONG BEFORE I HAD EVEN ONE DONKEY..  IT IS A PERFECTLY SHAPPED MINI DONKEY.. IN PEWTER-- WITH PANIERS TO HOLD THE TOOTHPICKS ... (OR MY HEARING AIDS OVERNIGHT.)- HE DONATED THEM WITH THE IDEA THAT I SELL THEM FOR $100--I WILL TRY AND GET A PICTURE OF THEM IN OUR DOGGIE BAG WEB SITE..
****
WHICH BRINGS TO MIND JUST HOW MUCH OF ANYTHING IS NECESSARY...  I HEARD OF A COMPANY THAT WAS GIVING NO BONUS THIS YEAR TO THEIR EXEC'S WHO MAKE OVER A MIL A YEAR ANYWAY...  DARN SHAME... DOES IT MAKE WHIPPED CREAM ANY LESS FATTENING?  DO YOU REALLY NEED A HOUSE WITH 5 BATHROOMS?
 WELL- LET ME RETHINK-- IF YOU NEED A HOUSE WITH 5 BATHROOMS, THERE MUST BE SOME OTHER PROBLEM THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED IN SOME OTHER MANNER.
WHEN I REDID  MY BATHROOM A COUPLE YEARS AGO TO INSTALL A  LONG TUB FOR SOAKING,  I ENDED UP WITH  A VERY SMALL SINK WHICH EVERYONE- INCLUDING THE CARPENTER, AND PLUMBER TRIED TO TALK ME OUT OF.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE REST OF THE WORLD DOES IN A BATHROOM SINK.... I ONLY KNOW A SINK IIS TO PUT UNDER A VERY INEXPENSIVE METAL MEDICINE CABINET WHICH RUSTS IN THE BOTTOM IN 6 MONTHS, EVEN IF YOU DON'T USE IT.
*****
CONTINUING WITH THIS CONCEPT OF WRETCHED EXCESS  I DONT KNOW IF IT IS TRUE, BUT IF IT IS NOT... IT SHOULD BE...  THERE IS A COUNTRY WHERE A SPEEDING TICKET CAN COST $64,000.  
I AM TOLD- THAT ALL FINES IN THE COUNTRY ARE BASED ON THE  INCOME OF THE OFFENDING PARTY
HENCE THE  $12,782 PARKING TICKET...  IT WORKS FOR ME... WHAT A FANTASTIC SOURCE OF REVENUE....
I AM TOLD IT IS NORWAY.... ?TWAN????
***********
BACK TO  DONKEYS-- AT 10:30  JANINE  WILL HAVE... I ASSUME... HER SUNDAY MORNING WALK ABOUT  WITH DONKEYS.
THE PATH THRU THE WOODS IS HOPEFULLY PASSABLE...  JOYCE DID GO AND CHECK-- THERE WAS A SMALL AMT OF WATER IN THE PIPE-  AND STILL NEEDS MORE DIRT ON TOP TO IMPROVE THE FOOTING.
PEG SHOWED UP YESTERDAY WITH HER COLLEDTION OF HORSE HALTERS...  WHY THEN?     I DO NOT KNOW IF IT WAS NOT GOLDIE... THEN WHY??? -- SO WE MAY EVEN HAVE ONE HALTER PER DONKEY.
*****
WE DID HAVE A MASSIVE RAINSTORM.. AND OUR LITTLE  POND IS UP AT LEAST 8 INCHES...
HOW BIG A RAINSTORM?? EVEN MY PHONE HAD AN EMERGENCY FLOOD WATCH NOTICE... MAKES ME SLIGHTLY CONCERNED THAT IT KNOWS WHERE I LIVE--  ( THO THAT COULD BE HELPFUL TOO)
**** 
INGRID  SEEMS TO BE HAVING A LOVELY TIME  SWEEPING AND CLEANING... IN ANTICIPATION OF HER 3 COLLEGE FRIENDS WHO ARE COMING HERRE TOMORROW TO SPEND A FEW DAYS COOKING....

NOW WHAT MORE COULD I ASK FOR.?????
