JAN 12 2017

AT MAIL CALL INVARIABLY SOMEONE ASKS WHAT DID YOU DO TODAY.......WELLLLL. AS I SIT WRITING THIS FOOL DAIL Y DOGGIE, THE CONTENTS OF THE DESK CERTAINLY  ARE LIKE A SQUARE ON THE CALENDAR..  IT IS AN ODD COLLECTION.... FROM SQUARES OF  TILE FOR THE FLOOR IN THE BOMB SHELTER--- TO THE BLOW TORCH FOR PREPARING DINNER.
IT IS A SMALL BLOW TORCH--  WITH CORRESPONDING  2 CANS OF EXPLOSIVE STUFF..

130 YEARS AGO I WENT TO A PARTY PUT ON BY THE LOCAL TV STATION IN ONE OF THE HOTELS IN BOSTON.  THERE WERE 2 THINGS I REMEMBER.. FIRSLY   THOSE HUGE SPEAKERS WHICH PUT OUT SOUND THAT YOU DIDN'T REALLY HEAR.. BUT FELT.  IT WAS POSSIBLE TO STAND AROUND AND TLAK, AND HEAR EACH OTHER QUITE WELL WHILE THOS SPEAKERS PUT OUT SOUND THAT YOU FELT.. IT WAS A MOST PEQUILIAR SENSATION......  THEN  THERE WAS A GUY IN A CHEF'S HAT/.COAT... SLICING A BIG LUMP OF MEAT AT EYE LEVEL AS IT SLOWLY ROTATED.. AS HE SLICED THE FRONT, A COUPLE SIGNIFICANT  BLOW TORCH TYPE THINGS SINGED THE BACK OF THE LUMP...I HAD SEEN MANY  RUMP IF BEEF SLICED  BBQ STYLE-- BUT THIS HAD AN ALMOST VIOLENT FLAME BURNING THE BACK SIDE  RIGHT THERE AT THE TABLE. AS IT ROTAT4D...  HE SLICED SLIVERS --- WHICH WERE COOKED --WHILE UNDERNEATH IT SURE LOOKED UNCOOKED TIL IT ROTATED THRU THE FLAME AGAIN...
TURNS OUT IT WAS MY INTRODUCTION TO   WHAT I SINCE LEARNED  HAS ALOT OF NAMES---GYRO-- BEING ONE OF THEM... IT IW WONDERFULLY SEASONED GROUND LAMB SCORCHED  THRU THE FLAME...   SERVED WITH A TOOTHPICK, IT WAS  GOOOOOOD.

SO I BOUGHT A BLOW TORCH--- WHICH I HAVE USED A FEW TIMES TO TRY AND REPLICATE THAT WONDERFUL FLAVOR.  IHAVE NOT YET BEEN SUCCESSFUL-- BUT I TRY. ---THE   BURNED GARLIC DOES NOT TASTE THE SAME.... SO MUCH FOR TH BLOW TORCH..
******
ANOTHER  DESK ODDITY IS A SMALL VIAL LABELED "PUPPY BREATH" --- A CRAZY ACRES  FUND RAISER FROM EARLENE DAYS OF SITTTING  WITH THE PUPPIES  PUTTING A CLEAN AND STERALIED VACCINE VIAL INDER THE NOSE OF A SLEEPING PUPPY AND THNE PUTTIN ON HTE RUBBER CAP.-- WE HAD A SIGN THAT SAID  "PUPPY BREATH MANUFACTURING COMPANY"  AND WE SOLD  ALOT OF THEM ONLINE FOR $8 ( WITH A REFIL FOR $5). PUPPY BREATH IS A KNOWN TRANQUILIZER-- ?PROOF?-- CAMERA  MARK SAID HE TOOK ONE AND OPENED IT AT THE THANKSGIVING DINNER- AND NO ONE ARGUED..

THE VIAL ON MY DESK IS TO QUIET MY NERVES WHEN DEALING WITH  THE COMPUTER.. -- MY VIAL HAS IN IT MY ONLY PIECE OF VALUABLE JEWELERY---  A TINY REAL PEARL THE SIZE OF A MUSTARD SEED... WHICH I FOUND IN  MY MOUTH LAST DOG FEST WHILE EATING THE STEAMED CLAMS.

IT JUST OCCURS TO ME -- THAT MAYBE WE SHOULD BE MARKETING THE PUPPY BREATH TRANQUILIZERS  DURING THE NEXT FEW POLITICAL MONTHS...  WE COULD HAVE A 2 FOR 1 SALE...  2 FOR $8  +$2 POSTAGE...  YOU COULD KEEP THEM NEXT TO YOUR REMOTE FOR WHEN CHANGING  THE CHANNELS DOESN'T HELP.
*******
W/R/T DINNER PREP...-- BY THE TIME I MAKE COFFEE  WITH OPEN FIRE IN MY GHILLIE POT- IT GIVES GREAT PURPOSE TO THE FACT THAT B Y EACH DOOR ON CRAZY ACRES THERE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A "LIVE" FIRE EXTINGUISHER..  AS YOU WANDER AROUND, IT WOLD BE HELPFUL, IF YOU HAPPEN TO HAVE A PEN WITH YOU-- TO CHECK AND THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER IS IN THE GREEN ZONE AND ADD THE DATE TO THE CARD HANGING THERE... IT WOULD IMPRESS ANY NOSY BUILDING INSPECTOR.

YOU WILL FIND THE FIRE EXTINGUISNERS UNDER THE BRIGHT RED ARROWS THAT ADI ACCREDITATION INSISTED I PUT OVER EACH BRIGHT RED FIRE EXTINGUISHER JUST TO LET YOU KNOW THOSE CYLINDARS ARE NOT ACTUALLY  MEDICIONAL OXYGEN TANKS. 
...
WE ARE ACCREDITED !!    THE REST OF THE STORY ON THOSE RED ARROWS, ---WHEN SHEILA OBRIEN  PASSED US ON OUR FIRST ACCREDITATION IN 2010.. SHE PASSED WITH THE NOTE THAT I STILL HAD TO LABEL ALL THESE RED CYLINDARS WITH A BIG RED ARRROW-- SO I WENT OT AND BOUGHT A BUNCH ( THEY RE NOT 10 CENTS EACH EITHER)-- SO WHEN SHE CAME 5 YEARS LATERR  TO INSPECT US FOR RENEWING OUR ACCREDITATION, WE HAD TO FIND TOHOS ARROWS AND GET THEM UP QUICKLY.

MY KEY IS TO HAVE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER NEXT TO EVERY DOOR... SO AS YOU RUN OUT AWAY FROM THE FIRE, YOU CAN GRAB IT..   
SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY TROUBLE FINDING AN EXIT DOOR,   YOU WILL SEE THEM LOCATEDD UNDERNEATH THE EXIT SIGNS WHICH ARE OVER EVERY HOLE IN THE BUILDING  WHICH WOULD ALLOW YOU TO EXIT...  EVEN THE T- TENT WHICH HAS NO WALLS,--- HAS AN EXIT SIGN OVER THE PERFERRED GAP.  THESE WERE REQUIRED BY ADI ACCREDITATION ALSO... 

ALL THAT BEFORE THEY EVEN LOOKED AT BELLA AND GEORGE.

I BETTER QUIT BEFORE I GET TO THE NUMBER OF TREES THAT HAD TO BE SACRIFICED AN DPROCESSED INTO PAPER SO WE COUDL BE ACCREDITED....

WE DID IT.- ACTUALLY  THERESA  AND JANINE  DID IT.... THEY WERE INSTRAMENTAL--- I WAS KICKING AND FIGHTING ALL THE WAY...
CAN YOU TELL?
