FEB 8 2017

I AM CLEARLY OF THE MIKE ROWE MENTALITY- AT LEAST FROM WHAT I HEAR--250,000 DOLLARS OF  "HIGHER EDUCATION"  IS A QUESTIONABLE INVESTMENT IN MY BOOK...LEARNING TO WORK INTHE FIRST PLACE IS MORE CRITICAL...
HOWEVER..SOME PILOT OR ANOTHER GAVE ME THIS WEB TO WATCH FOR WEATHER

SO WHEN  SANDY CALLED  AND ASKED IF WE SHOULD CALL OFF THURSDAYS BOARD MEETING AT MARKS HOUSE  BECAUSE OF 
"THE STORM"   ,  
I WENT THERE AND LOOKED.. AT THIS TINY LITTLE BLUE BLOB  CRAWLING ACROSS THE COUNTRY  ALONG ABOUT OMAHA..I THOUGHT IT  VERY INCONSEQUENTIAL -- SO I CHECKED THIS MORNING-- STILL WAITING TO MAKE A DECISION ON THR BOARD.. IT DID PICK UP SOME MORE BLUE BLOB ALONG ABOUT CHICAGO.. IT THEN MET A GREEN AND YELLOW GLOB ALONG ABOUT CINCINNATTI AS IT LUMBERED TO PENNA.. AND THEN LAKE ERIE BLEW UP THE BLUE BLOB LIKE A BALLOON AND A WHOLE BUNCH OF GREENIES CAME RUNNING UP ACROSS VIRGINIA TO JOIN THE PARTY.. BY NOW MOVING STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW TO IPSWICH AS TEH BLUE BLOB WELCOMES THE GREENIES  WITH OPEN ARMS.

SOMEBODY APPARENTLY SPENT $200,000 TO GO  TO WEATHHERMAN SCHOOL TO LEARN THAT  A BLUE BLOB OVER OMAHA MEANS 12" SNOW IN IPSWICH.  SEEMS ODD.. WHEN MY FATHER JUST USED TO LOOK UP AND SAY "TODAY LOOKS LIKE A WEATHER BREEDER, BETTER UNCOVER THE SHOVELS"-
*****
SHOVELING USED TO BE MY JOB...I HAD 2 SISTERS, BUT I WAS THE SHOVELER... BECAUSE... HAVING A HORSE MEANT I WAS THE ONLY ONE IN THE HOUSEHOLD THAT WAS  FIT TO SHOVEL FOR HOURS WITHOUT GETTING SORE.-- I THINK I WAS PROBABLY THE ADHD ONE TOO. 
****
 SHOVELER AROUND HERE  WOULD HAVE TO BE JANINE.. FOR THE SAME REASON...

SPEAKING OF JANINE... I DO NOT KNOW WHAT SHE HAS IN MIND ABOUT THE DONKEYS-- I AM THE LAST TO BE TOLD... BUT RUMOR HAS IT 12 MORE ARE ON THE WAY---  AND HAVING 12 MORE MINI'S IS NOT REALLY A PROBLEM... WE ONCE HAD UPWARDS OF 30 ALL IN THE ONE STALL IN THE AREA KENNEL 3 TO 8  AND THE FLAT FIELD...
 I SUSPECT SHE HAS HOMES FOR MANY..  BUT HER IDEA IS TO REALLY DEVELOPE THE "WANDER THE WOODS" CONCEPT OF TAKING THEM ON  DONKEY WALKS THRU WILLOWDALE STATE FOREST..  WHICH IS A  GREAT IDEA. ...
  WE DO HAVE THE ROOM FOR 12 MORE... NOT A PROBLEM... ESPECIALLY WITHOUT HER HORSE HERE...--  WE COULD TAKE ON ANOTHR 24 IF I HAD JUST FINISHED REBUIOLDING THAT  "PEN"  SECTION OF THE OLD ARENA.-- THE BAD THING ABOUT MINI'S IS MOST LOOK IDENTICAL- AND IT IS TOUGH TO TELL THEM APART..  SO AS THEY DEVELOPE THIER PERSONALITIES LIFE CAN GET CONFUSING...  REMEMBER I USED TO DRIVE 8 LIKE THE BUDWEISERS.... AND EVERY SO OFTEN WE WOULD GET ONE IN THE WRONG POSITION IT THE HITCH... OR HEAVEN FORBID  PUT A HARNESS ON TIMMY WHO JUST DIDN'T WALK IN HARNESS... SO HE-- TOTALLY LOOSE   FOLLOWED US IN PARADES WITH A BALLOON TIED TO HIS HEAD SO WE COULD SEE WHERE HE WAS IN THE CROWD..( ABSOLUTELY TRUE-- LOOK AT THAT PICTURE OF THE PARADE WITH BUSH CLINTON AND PEROT FLOATS... THAT IS TIMMY OUT FRONT WITHOUT A STRAP ON HIM.)

SO JANINE HAS SOME EXPLAINING TO DO...
***********
 THE PART THAT BLOWS MY MIND.... IS   I WAS TOLD LONG AGO THAT IF I WORE COWBOY BOOTS LONG ENOUGH EVENTUALLY THEY WOULD BE IN STYLE...  AND  THEY WERE/ARE..?

 THAT IS CERTAINLY TRUE WITH MY CHOICE OF ANIMALS TOO... NO ONE THOUGHT GREAT DANES COULD DO A  THING... YET THEY ARE PERFECT FOR MOBILITY...  AND DONKEYS--  WHEN I DROVE THE 8  I WAS THE ONLY ONE WITH DONKEYS IN THIS HIGH BROW MYOPIA DRIVING CLUB- AND I MEAN THEY WEFRE SERIOUS INTERNATIONAL COMPETITORS IN DRIVING EVENTS...  BEAUTIFUL RIGS OF 4 IN HANDS  ALL POLISHED.... AND ME WITH 8 MINI DONKEYS... MIND YOU --- SAM FRIEDMAN  OF TORONTO MADE MY HARNESS--- HE WAS TEH PREMIER HARNESS MAKER OF THE  WORLD-- MY HARNESS WAS EASILY THE QUALITY OF COACH LEATHER POCKETBOOKS.-- AND THE  VEHICLE I DROVE WAS A  BENNINGTON VEHICLE----JUST LIKE THE ONE PRINCE PHILLIP DROVE EXCEPT HIS WAS IN BLUE... SO WE WERE FANCY--  AND I DROVE MY DONKEYS THRU SEVERAL HOTEL KITCHENS - AROUND RACKS OF  STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKES TO DELIVER SANTA INTO THE BALLROOM AT MANY  COMPANY PARTIES AT TEH BIGGEST AND BRIGHTEST HOTELS OF BOSTON..
IT WAS HEARD AT ONE MYOPIA  MEETING  "CARLENE IS THE ONLY ONE HAVING FUN"  AND WHEN IT CAME TO THE TOWN'S 350 CELEBRATION, NO ONE HAD A HORSE THAT WOULD PUT UP WITH A PARADE AND MARCHING BANDS ETC... SO I CALLED ON MARY-- MY MAMOUTH DONKEY  -- WHO HAD NVER BEEN IN  REAL HARNESS TO THAT DAY.. AND SHE BEHAVED PERFECTLY.-- SHE HAD DONE MANY "JESUS JOBS"  BUT THIS WAS NEW...SHE WAS BEST ANIMAL I EVER HANDLED.. WITHOUT A DOUBT.

DONKEYS MAKE  GREAT PETS... MORE LIKE BIG DOGS THAN HORSES- JANINE IS NOW EDUCATIONG THE HORSE WORLD AS TO THE BENEFITS OF DONKEYS--
I HAVE SEEN 2 VIDEOS LATELY OF DONKEYS CAREFULLY OPENING GATES FOR FELLOW DONKEYS TO GO FOR A WALK.... THEY DO THAT...
SO THAT IS MY CALLING    INTRODUCING DANES AND DONKEYS TO THE ANIMAL WORLD....

I DON'T WANT TO TELL ADI---  BUT DONKEYS WOULD BE PERFECT AS SERVICE ANIMALS  IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS..  BEEN THERE DONE THAT.

MAYBE I SHOULD TRY AND PUT ONE THRU THE ADI PUBLIC ACCESS TEST THIS SPRING... NOW THAT WOULD BE AN INTERESTING PROJECT.
********
DONNA IS HEALTHY. AND HERE.... MEGAN IS DOWN  THIS "2 EXITS NO WAITING"  PROBLEM IS GOING AROUND...
*********
AND FOR HEAVENS SAKE   TAKE EGGS... WE HAVE CARTONS OF EGGS THAT ARE ACCUMULATING AS GRACE'S BUNCH ARE LAYING 2 DOZEN A DAY...  AND BRING EGG CARTONS
