NOV 21 2016

THIS WAS THE WEEKEND OF THE FIREWOOD...  SOMEONE  GAVE US A BIG TRAILERFULL OF CHUNKS  OF AIR DRIED WOOD, WHICH WILL BE WONDERFUL TO HAVE----WHICH TANNER AND I SPLIT-- TANNER LIFTED,  I HAD THE JOB OF  SIT DOWN AND MOVE YOUR HAAND 4 " EVERY 10 SECONDS-- NEARLY WORE ME OUT  !    THE SPLITTER THAT IS... THAT SPLITTER DOES NOT OWE ME A DIME--IT WORKS-- AND HAS FOR YEARS-- THRU MANY CORDS...  

I HAVE BEEN BUYING WOOD.... KILN DRIED... I LIKE  A FIREPLACE--GOING FROM NOW TO JULY !!
HOWEVER... A CORD IS A CORD  IS A CORD AND AT $500 PER KILN DRIED I WAS VERY SUSPICIOUS AN D WARNED THEM I WAS GOING TO STACK IT-- 4 X 4 X 8 A FULL CORD.. EVEN WARNED, I WAS ⅓ SHORT..                                                                       
IT DIDN'T TAKE RYAN 4 MINUTES TO STACK IT.-- 

SPEAKING OF WOOD.... IF EVERYONE PICKED UP ONE PIECE AS YOU COME THRU THE FRONT DOOR, THE BINN WOULD  STAY FULLER.
********
DOGS-- 
I WAS REALLY PLEASED WITH THE 2 DOGS IN NEW YORK-- CHARLIE AND FINN--AND THE PHOTO OF THE 2 OF THEM STANDING  IN TIMES SQUARE-- JUST LOOKING AROUND---  DOING WHAT THEY WERE TOLD TO DO....NO LEASH  ON EITHER ONE.... 
 I AM AWARE....PRIDE GOETH BEFORE A FALL-- & I KNOW I AM STILL REACTING TO THE  RESPONSE I HAD WHEN I FIRST JOINED ADI  "YOU DANE PEOPLE ARE NUTS"   BUT I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE DOGS WE ARE PUTTING  OUT..  THE "WE"  IS NOT JUST MEGAN AND STEVE... BUT ALL OF THE VOLUNTEERS WHO HANDLE THEM FROM PUPS... AND START THE SPOON FEEDING.

I AM GOING TO BE INTERESTED IN THE AUTHORS AS THEY GO ALONG.... FOR SOME REASON WE DID NOT DO AS MUCH SPOON FEEDING OF THEM AS WE DID THE SNAILS- I DUNNO WHY... BUT I REMEMBER WE NEVER HAD A REALLY DEFINITE MEGAN MARCH PROCESS... AND THAT WAS  DUE TO THE  SHORTAGE OF SPOON FEEDING. ---WITH THE NEXT TWO LITTERS COMING, I THINK WE SHOULD PAY MORE STRICT ATTENTION  TO THE 2 TAPS ON THEE CAN( DISH) ... I THINK THE AUTHORS GOT SHORTCHANGED.
*****
 BENTLEY--I CAN'T SAY HE IS ALOT BETTER...  WHAT I CAN SAY IS, I UNDERSTAND HIS LIMITATIONS BETTER NOW... SINCE THE ACCIDENT HE HAS BEEN NERVOUS, PANTING.?SHORT OF BREATH... BUT I HAVE DISCOVERED, WHEN HE BEGINS TO PANIC, HE RUNS TO SIT IN MY LAP.. AND THO THAT IS NOT THE MOST DESIRABLE WAY A SERVICE DOG SHOULD ACT,  I AM LEARNING TO LIVE WITH IT- AND TRUST HIM TO COME RUNNING IF HE GETS WORRIED.  HE WAS SUCH AN HONEST SERVICE DOG BEFORE, IT IS A SHAME, BUT I AM WATCHING HIM VERY CLOSELY, AND HE DOES GET THE "MOMMY MOMMY SAVE ME "  LOOK NOW AND WE  ARE WORKING THRU THAT.  
****
I DID WRITE TO THE CHROMODANE WOMAN  WITH HOPES OF CONVINCING HER TO THINK ABOUT SERVICE DOG TRAINING FOR REAL...  SHE USES THE WORD SERVICE  AND THERAPY  IN HER WEB-  I HOPE SHE GETS INVOLVED;;; 
****
JUST TO GET ME GOING, YESTERDAY SOMEONE EXPLAINED TO ME HOW A DANE WAS TOO STUPID TO CHASE A TENNIS BALL..... IT GAVE ME THE CHANCE TO SAY-- DANES ARE SMART--- IF YOU THROW A YELLOW TENNIS BALL AND THEY JUST SIT AND LOOK AT IT,  THEY AREN'T DUMB.... BUT THEY MIGHT THINK YOU ARE FOR THROWING IT AWAY..
*******

WE ARE READY TO SEND THE VIDEO AND DIRECTIONS  FOR YOU -ALL-- TO HOLD SHATTING AFAIRS AT ANY GATHERING YOU MAY BE INVOLVED WITH -- FROM FAMILY  GROUPS ( IT MIGHT BE INTERESTING EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T USE IT TO SELL NUMBERS) COCKTAIL PARTIES... HOLIDAY "FESTIVALS" WHATEER... IT SHOULD DRAW A CROWD AND BE INTERESTING.-- MOSTLY MARKS PICTURES...AND SOME CALENDAR SHOTS.

IT IS BASICALLY IN  6  5 MINUTE SEGMENTS ON THE THEORY THAT PEOPLE WOULD WATCH FOR A FEW MINUTES... NOT ALL SEGMENTS ARE QUITE THE SAME.... 

YOU WOULD ONLY  NEED SOME KIND OF COMPUTER/LAPTOP TO PLUG THE THUMBDRIVE INTO.. A PAIR OF SCISSORS 2 BOWLS AND A PENCIL AND PAPER-- IF YOU HAD 2 BOOKS TO USE TO HOLD UP THE POSTERS  THAT WOULD BE NICE...

EVERYTHING ELSE SHOULD BE IN THE ENVELOPE....   THERE IS NO AMOUNT OF  MONEY ON TEH POSTERS-- DAWN CHARGED 25 CENTS AND STILL  MADE $200--  I THINK $1 IS A GOOD NUMBER AND IF SOMEONE SPENDS $10 THEY GET 10 NUMBERS...

IF YOU GET THE REQUESTS IN TO ME TODAY , I CAN MAIL BY TONIGHT????  I DID NOT REALIZE T'D AY IS THIS THURSDAY, BUT YOU MIGHT GET  IT BY THEN..
I KNOW BELLA AND GEORGE HAVE A PARTY TONIGHT TO TRY IT ON.  WE MAY HAVE TO DRIVE IT THERE.
LET US PRAY...

Carlene,
We delivered a pumpkin pie to the firemen of our area and once again, they were very please.  Smiles, hugs and handshakes enjoyed by all.  We chatted and laughed and they told us about the all night fires they fought the night before, in extremely strong winds.
You always use the saying “Random Acts of Kindness”.  We experienced that kindness today when Captain Dave, Seppi and Garrett came to our house equipped with new smoke alarms, ladder and all the tools to replace the old ones...they even added a couple.   How is that for Our Appreciation Day!
I wonder what our neighbors were thinking when they saw that big red fire truck sitting in front of our house...pictures attached.
I’m still smiling.
