FEB 11 2017
 WE HAD QUITE A FEW PEOPLE EXPLAIN THEI AMAZON STUFF TO ME.... OR TRY TO...  FROM THE COLLECTION OF  INSTRUCTIONS.... APPARENTLY THE AMAZON SITE OFF OF DAILY DOGGIE WEB GIVES US A HIGHER PERCENTAGE   SOMEONE SAID  OVER 5%  THE KICKER HERE IS   IT DOES NOT PAY FOR ANYTHING SENT TO SERVICE DOG PROJECT  37 BOXFORD RD....  -- NOT THAT I WISH TO BE ILLEGAL... AND COMPUTERS BEING WHAT THEY ARE.... IF PACKAGES WERE SENT TO ME-- OR BENTLEY  WHITE  -- AT 37-B BOXFORD RD, MAYBE THEIR COMPUTER WOULD NOT NOTICE  THE 37 B   ... COMPUTERS ARE ABSOLUTE-- THEY CAN NOT DO "ALMOST"  EXCEPT IN   THE SPELLCHECK FUNCTION...

SO THAT IS OFF OUR  DAILY DOGGIE LINK... APPARENTLY YOU CAN CHOOSE AMAZON-SMILE  SOMEWHERE WHIVH PAYS .05%  WHICH IS STILL WONDERFUL... AND THAT ONE DOESN'T CARE WHERE YOU SEND IT.  AND IS EASIER TO "GET ON" BECAUSE IT DOES NOT INVOLVE OUR WEB SITE..
 FROM THE RAFT OF EMAILS  WE GOT, I THINK THAT SUMS IT UP.. MAYBE NOT???? APPARENTLY WE DO GET  MUCH HIGHER % OFF THE WEB... THO WE ARE THRILLED WITH ANYTHING...    HAVE AT IT...
*********
I JUST GOT AN EXTRA BILL FROM THE SURVEYOR  $1500 TO STAKE OUT THE  EXCAVATION OF OUR WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE DOG HOUSE.. SOMEOW THE 2 BILLS I GOT TO STAKE OUT THE  DRIVEWAY FOR $2500  WERE NOT ENOUGH... THEY HAD TO COME BACK AND PLACE TEH DOG HOUSE EXACTLY WHERE I HAD SCRIBBLED IT ON "THE PLAN"  I HAD FIGURED PLUNKING IN THE MIDDLE OF 12 ACRES WAS CLOSE ENOUGH-- IT WAS WELL AWAY FROMT HE SIDES OF THE PROPERTY... BUT NO... HAD TO BE EXACT..  AND THEN THE  INSPECTOR HAD TO COME LOOK AT THE HOLE WE DUG...AND THE CONCRETE WE POURED..
I REALLY WONDERED WHY THEY HAD TO COME  SURVEY AND TEHN THE INSPECTOR COME STAND AROUND AND LOOK-- LIKE THE INSPECTOR  HAD SUCH  ACUTE VISION OT DETERMINE IF TEH BUILDING WAS PLANTED WITHIN 1/8 TH OF AN INCH .. HE SHOULD BE A SUPERBOWL JUDGE IF HE CAN SPOT 1/8 OF AN INCH...
 I HAD JUST SCRIBBLED IN THE BUILDING  NOT REALIZIING TEH ACCURACY TO WHICH I WOULD BE HELD.. BECAUSE BEFORE THEY DUG, I ACTULLY WOULD HAVE MOVED IT  OVER ANOTHER 20 FEET ---SO 53' TRAILERS COULD SWING MORE EASILY.. THEY CAN STILL MAKE IT,  BY SWINGING ONTO THE ONE SMALL PATCH OF GRASS WE HAVE..  WE DO GET BIG TRUCKS IN HERE....
I REMEMBER.....
 THERE WAS ONE  NEW DRIVER WHO PULLED UP  ON THE ROAD AND DID NOT WANT TO RISK GOING UP   THE  NARROW UPHILL DRIVEWAY  NOT REALIZING IT OPENED UP IN BACK SO HE COULD TURN...MEGAN WAS  ON HER WAY OUT AND HE ASKED IF HE COULD TURN...BLESS MEGAN... SHE ANSWEREED.." THERE IS AN OLD LADY UP THERE SITTING IN FRONT OF HER TEEPEE WHO CAN TURN IT FOR YOU IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE..."  
THE IMAGE WAS LOVELY-- ALL I NEEDED WAS A CORN COB PIPE...
****
MY WORST TRUCK TURNING EPISODE WAS UNDER THE WESTON HOTEL IN BOSTON-- BIG SIGN -  TRUCKS --TO LOADING DOCKS--  AND IF MY TRAILER WAS NOT 53 FEET LONG, IT WAS DARN NEAR.. SO I WENT DOWN THE CHUTE  AND LANDED IN A HUGE UNDERGROUND "PLACE'  WHERE SEVERAL TRUCKS WERE NEATLY BACKED IN. ALL THOSE UNDERGROUND CONCRETE POSTS WERE  ARRAINGED  SO TRUCKS COULD TURN-- MY PROBLEMS - ASIDE FROM  BEING IN THIS KIND OF PLACE FOR THE FIRST TIME.... WAS ALL THOSE TRUCKS HAD A SNUB NOSE... I WAS IN A PICK UP WHICH ADDED ANOTHER 6 FEET  OF TRUCK IN FRONT OF ME.. I WAS ALSO A WOMAN IN THIS MAN CAVE KIND OF PLACE... I TURNED AND BACKED AND PULLED FORWARD AND BACKED FOR ABOTU 20 MINUTES-  WHILE ALL THOSE  TOUGH MEN JEERED, MADE FUN OF ME  AND OFFERED SUGGESTIONS.....THEN AS WE UNLOADED A BIG BUNCH OF ANIMALS-- DONKEYS ETC.. THERE WAS A PERSON CARRYING THE CARDBOARD BOX WITH 100 BABY CHINCKENS..-- AND THE BOX BROKE- ALLOWING 100 TINY LITTLE FLUFFY THINGS TO SCATTER ALL OVER  AND UNDER THESE BIG TRUCKS...-- WE-- THE ANIMAL EPISODE CREW.. GOT DOWN ON OUR HANDS AN D KNEES TRYING TO GATHER THEM-- AND-- ( HERE IS THE FUNNY PART) THOSE 4 TOUGH GUYS JOINED US CRAWLING AROUND  CALLING "HERE CHICKIE HERE CHICKIE, CHICKIE ,CHICKIE
NOW THAT WAS FUNNY !!
 PLUS WE GATHERED 102 OF THE 100..THEY ARE TOUGH TO COUNT-- BUT THAT IS ANOTHER STORY...

RE: MY SLIDING SCHOOL CONCERN....
***
MY  CHILDREN, NEW DRIVERS,  TOOK A COURSE OFFERED BY DRIVEINCONTROL.ORG.  WE CALLED IT SKID SCHOOL.  USED THE SCHOOL CARS TO DO EXTREME MANEUVERS FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS ON A SATURDAY.  LOCATED IN ANDOVER, MASS.  THEY USE OLD AIRFORCE RUNWAYS FOR THEIR CLASSES. MY CHILDREN LOVED IT AND LEARNED A LOT.  MY INSURANCE COMPANY SUBSIDIZED THE COST SO I PAID $35.  EXCELLENT SCHOOL. 
IN LOOKING UP INFO FOR YOU IT SEEMS THEY HIT HARD TIMES AS A FOR PROFIT AND REORGANIZED AS A NON PROFIT.  GLAD THEY DIDNT GO UNDER.  NOT JUST FOR TEENS!!   MY HUSBAND DID IT TOO AND LOVED IT.  $350 now. 

Have a Dane tastic day...
