SO NOW I HAVE A BEEF WITH AAA..... I HAVE BEEN SURE OF THIS FOR YEARS BUT NOW....I FINALLY HAVE PROOF.... MY CONTENTION IS THAT AAA-- NOTICING MY AGE.. HAS FOUND IT TO THEIR ADVANTAGE TO BILL PEOPLE LIKE ME MANY TIMES WITH THIS RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP NOTICES.. EXCEPT THIS YEAR... I KEPT TRACK.. I DID RENEW WITH THE FIRST NOTICE.. AND GOT MY AAA CARD EXP DATE 12/2017..AND I GOT A SECOND NOTICE WHICH I SENT BACK WITH NOTI IT IS PAID...AND GAVE THEM ALL THE NUMBERS ON MY FIRST CARD... WHICH MATCHED.. NEXT... I GOT ANOTHER RENEW NOW !! BEFORE IT EXPIRES... BEFORE ANYONE STARTS WITH THE SHE'S 79 AND CAN'T REMEMBER.... I GAVE IT TO LINDA WITH A "CALL THIS AND SEE IF IT IS PAID" WHICH SHE DUITIFULLY DID AND THE AAA REPORTED IT WAS NOT PAID AND I OWED THEM 82 PLUS $1 FOR SOMETHING ELSE...SO I TOOK A PICTURE... WITH MY PHONE ( AND WITH DIFFICULTY.) . OF THE NOTICE AND THE CARD WHICH EXPIRES 12/17.. NOW LINDA IS WRITING A NASTY NOTE-- WITH COPIES TO THE BBB...
I CAN'T SAY I "CAUGHT THEM" LAST YEAR BECAUSE THEY DID HAVE 2 DIFFERENT NUMBERS FOR ME-- WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN MY FAULT-- ALTHO IT WAS MOST PEQUILIAR THEY HAD AS THE FREE EXTRA PERSON JANINE IN BOTH ACCOUNTS..THESE 'HONEST MISTAKES CAN BE MOST PROFITABLE.
ANOTHER OUTFIT WHICH HAS IT DOWN TO A SCIENCE IS AARP.. AND ALL THESE RENEW NOW NOTICES COME IN THE NOV/DEC WHEN THERE IS SO MUCH MAIL-- SO IF ONLY 500,000 OUT OF THE 34 MILLION MAKE THE MISTAKE, THAT IS AN EXTRA $41 MILLION PROFIT.
THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO STUDY THIS STUFF- AND IF THERE ARE NOT, IT IS AN OVERSIGHT ON THE COMPANY'S PART.
WHAT GOT ME GOING..... WAS THE FLORIDA BALLOT WHERE AL GORE WAS SECOND ON THE LIST, BUT HIS CHAD WAS THE THIRD-- FOR A STRANGE REASON IN FINE PRINT. ( YOU NEW COMERS MAY NOT KNOW , I BOUGHT A FLORIDA VOTING MACHINE ON EBAY .. YEARS AGO.... THEY ARE STILL FOR SALE THERE LAST I KNEW...)
THE STUDY OF ERRORS IS A FINE PROFESSION... EVEN IN THE DOG DEPARTMENT.... CASE IN POINT LAINE'S NURSERY CAMERA. CONSTANTLY GOING "OFFLINE"
FOR REASONS BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THE NURSERY CAMERA ? EITHERNET? WIRES COME OUT OF THE WALL RIGHT NEAR THE DOOR AND GO INTO A MYSTERY BOX TAPED TO THE TABLE THERE.
FACT-----THERE IS A 4" SPACE BEHIND THE BOX...-- AND FACT-- THAT WIRE IS SUPPOSED TO CLICK IN PLACE LIKE PHONE WIRES DO AND IT HAS A WEAK CLICKER.../
PEOPLE RETURNING WITH LAINE (WHO IS ON LEASH SO WE CDON'T HAVE A DOG FIGHT) REMOVE HER LEASH AND PLOP IT ON THE ONLY AVAILABLE HORIZONTAL SPACE UNCLUTTERED BY HORIZONTAL CLUTTERING DEVICES... NAMEY THE 4" BEHIND THAT BOX.
SO THE SCENE IS SET NEXT TIME LANIE'S BLADDER IS FULL SOMEONE GRABS THAT LEASH FROM THE 4" NITCHE BEHIND THE " BOX" AND KNOCKS THE WIRE JUST ENOUGH TO DISLOGE IT ( DUE TO IT'S DEFECTIVE CLICKER) AND THE NEXT THING I KNOW I AM GETTING EMAILS FROM A GUY NAMED CHRIS WHO IS SUPPOSED TO KEEP US RUNNING....
HE MUST THINK "NOT ONLY IS THE CLICKER DEFECTIVE..."
OK SO HERE IS THE EDUCATIONAL PART OF THIS DD..
THAT WIRE, WITH THE DEFECTIVE CLICKER....I MAY HAVE THE LABEL WRONG... BUT IT IS A EITHERNET K45 ( OR SOME SUCH) WHICH MEANS IT IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE PHONE JACK.. AND IS REPLACEABLE IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TOOL... SO I WENT AND BOUGHT A K45 REPAIR TOOL- AND A K45 TESTER- ONLY TO FIND... THAT THE JAPANESE PEOPLE WHO I THINK INVENTED THIS THING HAVE TINY LITTLE HANDS...AND HAVE NO PROBLEM FIXING THESE...
SO WHAT I THOUGHT WAS 4 SIMPLE WIRES, NEEDED TO BE UNTWISTED AND WHAT I THOUGHT WAS TEH ORANGE WIRE BECAME THE ORANGE WIRE AND THE ORANGE AND WHITE WIRE....SO 4 WIRES BECAME 8 AND ALLHAD TO BE IN A VERY SPECIFIC ORDER IN A ⅜ INCH WIDE PLUG. I CUT HUNKS OF WIRE AND TRIED TO PRACTICE THIS CONNECTION... MANY MANY MANY TIMES.... ..MAYBE IT IS MY EYESIGHT BUT I CAN FIGURE I HAVE IT CORRECT BUT THE TESTING DEVICE IS A CRUEL THING AND TELLS ME 2 ARE WRONG. START AGAOIN..
NOW HERE IS THE MILLION DOLLAR IDEA.... WHY NOT SELL THOSE TINY PLUGS ALREADY WIRED TO A 4 INCH WIDE SPLICING CONNECTION WHCH COULD BE WELL DEFINED "PUT THE ORANGE AND WHITE WIRE ON THE ORANGE AND WHITE POST. I COULD DO THAT...
IN TH E MEANTIME I AM NOT WILLING TO TAKE A CHANCE ON REWIRING THAT PLUG WITH BABIES DUE-- AND WHEN I AM NOT UNDER THE GUN FOR KEEPING THAT CAMERA RUNNING, I WILL FORGET ..... WHY FIX TEH ROOF IF IT IS NOT RAINING.?
SO HERE WE SIT ANALYZING EVERY PHART ONCE AGAIN...
LAINE IS PAWING... I DON'T THINK SHE WILL HAVE 9 PUPS... I AM BETTING ON 4-- GRACE HAS SEEN THEM MOVE-- SO ALL IS OK... AND I THINK SHE WILL HAVE ENOUGH MILK FOR 9... ALSO OF EDUCATIONAL NOTE... SHE HAS 6 NIPPLES ON ONE SIDE
THUS ENDETH THE LESSON OF THE DAY.
We made it home last night about 2 am your time. We drove straight through & the weather was great!
Thank you so very much for everything!! For your hospitality, for welcoming us, for working with Eve & for the AMAZING dogs you and your staff produce! Truly just being there was a remarkable experience!
I did not at all expect that we would come there this trip & Eve would be matched with a dog! To say I am blown away is an understatement! I thought we would just help out & had only hoped you’d get to know us and agree to try and match Eve with a dog but that we’d have to come back (maybe many times) before that would happen. I just don’t even know what to say. I always feel so lame in these situations.... I should have so much more to say to express my gratitude for what you are doing for my girl & my family.... I just don’t have the words! I know a lot of it was just good timing but still - Speechless.
Thank you again so very much!!
Lance & Deb Dahl & Family
WE DID NOT EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO FIND A DOG FOR HER EITHER EXCEPT FINN SEEMED TO LIKE HER-- AND I DO HAVE THE OPINION THAT IF THE BOND STARTS, DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO KEEP IT GOING.... SO SHE IS FLYING BACK JAN 1-2-3??
ALSO THE SHATTING ON THE NEW CALENDAR IS CORRECT JAN 8TH MARK COULD NOT BE THERE THE 1ST... AND I WAS AFRAID THE FIRST WE MIGHT BE SHORT HANDED SO I SAID THE 8TH...
KEEP THE FAITH.
