i wish i knew how to tweet-- i get up at 4am and rush to the news to see what tweets wil have affected the world overnight.. i get the urge to respond to them and set them all straight... but i can't...
so i wandered out to order more stuff from uline--- that company which has alot of stuff we need- this time mailers for the calendars and dots for the shatting.-- and i had time to kill-- so i wandered onto their "community" listing , looking for maybe grant money from a big compayny---didn't find any-- but ran into "liz's letters" -- apparently an owner-- and someone who speaks her mind quite willingly-- and interestingly-- she had a good one on Mexico jobs...--i landed in uline's page about equal opportunity employment --and they said how glowingly they behaved... and had a nice photo of a tall white male with a black gal on one side and a white gal on the other.... i had to toy with it..... how about if the photo was of a tall black gal in the middle with the shorter white males on either side. habits are hard to break...
i also took that moment to comment on the extremely expensive thick- heavy paper -of their catalogues which are included wiwth every shipment - we ordeer from there on occasion and i toss every one of those catalogs in the trash as soon as it arrives.
i ordered 400 more mailers and 3 cartons of shatting stickers along with some janitorial supplies.
now about thialand and the puzzles-- the dhl tracking site is either down or our puzzles are stuck in a chinese airport since 12/3-- i did not expcet the puzzles before christmas--they should be good-- it is of the firehouse picture which is in the back of the calendar. if they aren't stuck, they shold be here in the next few days..7 cartons 39 pounds of hem... FYI...

AND THE RECIPIENTS REPORTS
I still can't ever thank you enough for how much my life has changed thanks to all the hard work you and your wonderful staff do.
It's been a week and one day since Pixie and I have been home and my sweet Pixie has helped me in so many ways. I'm doing things that I thought I would never be able to do again!
One of my favorite things is getting to go on the uneven grass and walk with my boys and watch them play and have fun. I missed those days so much. Pixie helps me at the drop of a hat even when running and getting her daily run in. She never takes her eyes off me.
Yesterday I had another doctors appointment we worked on the elevator as Megan showed me in training. Then I said ok let's do this lets climb these stairs and my sweet girl helped me. It was the most amazing feeling knowing I had Pixie by my side helping me knowing I safe with her. She didn't only help help me up the stairs she was my second pair of eyes as I was focusing so much looking down at my walking she was watching our surroundings and a women was passing by. I felt a little nudge and it was Pixie telling me to look up we need to move over a little bit. It was so amazing. She always has her eyes out watching our surrounds making sure I'm safe when we out and about.

We have been volunteering a lot at the local council on aging, they all love him there, he loves meeting the seniors. A few weeks ago a women motioned for him to come near her, he did, sat right in her lap. No broken bones! I can see their eyes light up when they meet him.
No lunch today, instead we spent a couple of hours at the Peabody post office. We had low expectations but were proven wrong. A delightful woman named Susan who used to work in Topsfield remembered our dogs and was pleased to see Bentley and all our mail. So we broke into one of the envelopes and gave her a calendar! We used the wheel chair to transport the boxes and it came in handy for Carlene while she processed our $716 worth of postage.
I'll keep you "posted" about lunch.
