JAN 13 2017
 I THINK I LIKE GETTIN G  A DAILY NEWSPAPER- ACTUALLY THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.  MOSTLY I READ TEH OPINION TYPE STUFF.. EDITORIALS ETC....I DON'T READ TEH STOCK REPORTS- THO SOME OF THE ARTICLES ABOUT COMPANY DECISIONS ARE INTERESTING.. NOT ONLY IS IT INERESTING REAING, IT IS FIRE STARTER NEWSPRINT DELIVERED DAILY...-- IT IS ALSO THE REASON I HAVE TO GET OUT AND GO TO THE STREET WHERE IT IS THROWN UNDER THE MAILBOX IN A LITTLE PLASTIC BAG.  EARLY MORNINGFRESH AIR....

SOMEWHERE IN MY LIFE I DELIVERED NEWSPAPERS -- THE NEWBURGH NEWS..... WHICH I THREW OFF MY BKIE... BUT FIRST THERE WAS A QUICK WAY OF FOLDING THEM INTO A 6" SQUARE, AND FOLDING OVER  SOMETHING, THAT HELD THEM IN  THAT SQUARE..   SO YOU COULD THOW THEM BETTER....
I JUST TRIED TO REPLICATE IT.... AND  HAVENT'TY GOT IT YET..  I ALSO THINK THE PAPER WAS THINNER ...TO BE RESOLVED LATER WITH SECTIONS..
*******
LUNCH WITH ANN---THERE IS A VERY GOOD SERVE YOURSELF CASUAL FISH PLACE THAT HAS  JUST PLAN GOOD FOOD...---ANN IS OUR PRIMARY GRANT WRITER/SPELLER...  AND ALL REQUESTS FOR MONEY RELAYY HAVE TO GO THRU HER- BY THE TIME WE REJECTED DESERT, I HAD GOT TO THE JOB DESCRIPTIONS OF ALL OUR KEY PERSONELL...  WHICH AFTER ALL IS SAID AND DONE, YOU DO WHATEVER NEEDS TO BE DONE, BUT THERE MYABE SOME WAYS TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR ALL , WITH A LITTLE PLANNING...  
**  SOOOO......
THERE WILL BE A SHOCK TODAY WHEN I GIVE EVERYONE ONE OF MY TRIPPLE FOLDED  5 X 7  CARDS, WITH A PEN AND ASK TEHM TO WRITE DOWN THE  TIME AND MAJOR CHORES....... NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH   BENDING OVER AND PICKING UP THE ODD BIT OF LITTER, BUT IF THEY SPENT ½ HOUR BABYSITTING THE PUPS  WHILE SOMEONE ELSE RAN TO TH TE POST OFFICE... IT NEEDS TO BE DOCUMENTED..

THE BASIC PROBLEM HERE IS ALL SCHEDULES  CAN BE BLOWN AWAY  AS AN UNUSUAL SITUATION ARRISES... 

 THANKS TO PAM, I HAVE THE GENREAL LAYOUT OF  TIME AND PLACE ----- FOR  INSTANCE....  SHANNON IS DOING A GREAT JOB IN THE BARN... IT IS CLEAN, THE DOGS ARE ROTATED OUT TO PLAY ( I THINK TWICE A DAY??) AND TRAINERS APPEAR TO FEED THEM AT THE TABLES SO I CAN SEE WHAT THE LOOK LIKE., 

THE DIVISIONS ARE... THE BARN..----.. THE UPPERS ( HOUSE, DEAGLE, NUTT)--- TRAINING----GROUNDS  KEEPING---OFFICE==== AND WHAT CAN ONLY BE CALLED A FLOATER.... ( USUALLY GRACE.. OR ME IF REQUIRED)

THEN ANN WENT TO MEXICO FOR A COUPLE WEEKS-- AND SOMEHOW EXPECTS US TO BE ALL ORGANIZED WHEN SHE RETURNS....
*************
THE CONCEPT IS... WE.... THE REGULAR PAID STAFF, MUST BE ABLE TO GET ALL THE  ESSENTIAL..FEED/ CLEAN/EXERCISE CHORES DONE OURSELVES - AND THEN ALL THE VOLUNTEERS ALLOW US ALL THE SUPER SERVICE WE GIVE ALL THESE DOGS.. I SAY WE-- PAID STAFF....I AM NOT OF THAT "WE"  AS I TOO AM A VOLUNTEER.

 THERE ARE 5 REQUIREMENTS --FOR KEEPING THE VOLUNTEERS HAPPY AND WORKING HARD....
1.  WE HAVE A GOAL...   AND WE ACCOMPLISH THAT ....PUTTING OUT WONDERFUL LIFE CHANGING DOGS.
2.  IT IS OCASSIONALLY HARD WORK.. SO IT MUST BE FUN- AND ENTERTAINING... I LEAVE THAT TO THE DOGS AND PUPPIES.
3  VOLUNTEEERS  MUST BE FED--  DONNA IS SUPER AT PROVIDING MEALS AND SNACKS--  WE NEED TO HAVE  AVAILABLE A CONSTANT "KRAFT TABLE" LIKE THEY DO IN MOVIE  JOBS SO PEOPLE SNACK AND GO BACK TO WORK-- AN HOUR LUNCH BREAK IS OUT...DINNER AVAIL FOR ANYONE WHO IS STILL HERE WORKING....
4.. THEY HAVE TO HAVE THE BEST EQUIPMENT WE CAN MANAGE ( LIKE OUR 3 COMMERCIAL WASHER/DRYERS-- TRACTOR-- GOLF CARTS--- STUFF LIKE THAT)
5... AND AFTER ALL THAT WE NEED TO HAVE EMAIL REPORTS FROM RECIPIENTS.  WHICH IS THE PAYCHECK FOR THE VOLUNTEERS...

AS TEH CAMERA PEOPLE (CP's) COME AND GO THRU HERE-- THEY FILL IN AND HELP EVEN WHEN I CAN NOT REMEMBER THEIR NAMES...-- IT IS A WORKING VACATION... APROXIMATELY 7 AM TO 7PM..  IT IS FUN... BUT IT IS NO SPA... AND WHEN THE CHURN PADDLE STICKS, YOU PADDLE HARDER....  IT IS A FARM.
*****
THIS HUGE TEAM EFFORT DOES WORK...
****STORM PREDICTED..*****.
PAM SENDS OUT THE CALL FOR EXTRA VOLUNTEER  HELP...
I RAN  TO COSTCO AND GOT $400 WORTH OF FOOD FOR TEH 3 DAYS
I CAN NOT REMEMBER WHO AND WHAT.. BUT WE HAD 14 PEOPLE SLEEPING  ALL OVER THE PLACE DURING THE STORM... 
AND THEY ALL GOT FED.CLEANED AND EXERCISED... AND SO DID THE DOGS...

SO IT WORKS...
AND BUD KEEPS FIXING EVERYTHING...
AND I NEVER MISSED A DIALY DOGGIE  ... DID I???
******

PUPS... GROUP 1-- ATHLETES-- I HAVE DECREED THAT THEYARE READY TO EAT OUT OF  INDIVIDYAP DISHES    OFF  INDIVIDUAL TOWELS IN THE KITCHEN-- THAT MEANS WE NEED TO LOCATE THE FLOOR TYPE DISHES  - I KNOW WE HAVE SOME...
THEY ARE THE KIND THAT SLOPE OUTWARD TO THE FLOOR, SO DOGS CAN NOT STEP ON THE RIM AND AHAVE THE FLIP IN THIER FACE..( OR MY SHIN.. AND THEY HURT BIG TIME)
 THOSE "NORMAL " DISHES CAN BE DANGEROUS-- THEY HURT.... WE USE THEM ALL THE TIME BUT ONLY IN HOLDERS OF SOME KND..
NEXT JOB IS TO LOCATE THE 8 PUPPY FEEDERS..  THEY ARE HERE... SOMEWHERE


AND WE NEVER USE THOSE MULTI  FLYING SAUCER PUPPY FEEDERS-- NO PUSHING AND SHOVING IN THIS KENNEL.
