TODAY IS HUG A FIREPLACE DAY..
WE ARE SET TO LOOSE ALL OUR HOUSE ELECTRICITY SHORTLY AFTER 7AM.. THEY ARE GOING TO REPLACE THE MAIN CIRCUIT BOARD---WHICH HAS BEEN A SHAMBLES EVER SINCE IT WAS WIRED BY THE GUY WHO DRANK ON THE JOB... IT WAS NOT HELPED BY THE FACT THAT WE GREW... AND ADDED THINGS...ON A BY GOLLY AND BY GOSH METHOD. I HAVE HAD ELETRITIANS REFUSE TO WORK IN THIS HOUSE... SO I GIVE HIGH PRAISE FOR THE CRANNEY COMPANY FOR EVEN ATTEMPTING IT.
THEY-- CRANNEY... HAVE PROMISED US 4 EXTENSION CORDS OFF THIER GENERATOR WHICH MIGHT KEEP THE KEROSENE FURNACE GOING-- THEN MAYBE THE COMPUTERS -- THEN MAYBE THE CAMERAS... WITH ONE LEFT FOR THE COFFEEPOT.
SOME BRIGHT SOUL WILL NOW SAY.. WHY DO WE NEED MORE THAN THAT??? AND YOU SURE HAVE A POINT..- ALTHO WASHING MACHINES AND HOT WATER COME CLOSE BEHIND...
I REMEMBER..... WATCHING THEM BUILD THE BIG HOUSES NEXT TO US- AND AT THE COUNTRY CLUB---AND WONDERING WHY ANYONE WOULD NEED THAT MUCH INDOOR... ( HEATED) SPACE.
BACK TO BROADWAY SONGS.... DESIGN FOR LIVING BY DONALD SWANN
WHEN WE STARTED MAKING MONEY
WHEN WE STARTED MAKING FRINEDS
WE BOUGHT THIS LITTLE RESIDENCE FOR ABOUT 1000 MORE,
THAN THE HOUSE , OUR LITTLE HOUSE, WAS ONCE THE STABLE TO.
... THE GARDEN'S FULL OF FURNATURE AND THE HOUSE IS FULL OF PLANTS.
...WE'RE DELIRIOUS ABOUT OUR COOKER FITMENT WITH THE EYE LEVEL GRILL
THAT MEANS THAT THE FAT CAN SQUIRT STRIAGHT INTO YOUR EYE.
THE OPEN PLAN 'S SO OPEN, THERE'S NO PLACE SAFE TO DRESS.
IT GOES ON AND ON ABOUT HAVING A PLACE
"THAT WON'T DISGRACE OUR HOUSE AND GARDEN FRIENDS."
IT IS WORTH A GOOGLE... ALL THEIR SONGS ARE
ANOTHER FAVORITE "HAVE SOME MADERIA M'DEAR"The song contains three much-quoted instances of syllepsis, NEW WORD TODAY ---- SYLLEPSIS--
The lyric tells of an elderly rake who "slyly inveigles" an attractive young girl of seventeen to his flat where he offers her a glass of Madeira, :
"She lowered her standards by raising her glass/Her courage, her eyes—and his hopes"
THEN... . "she made no reply, up her mind and a dash for the door."
AND FINALLY ...."SHE WOKE UP IN BED- WITH A SMILE ON HER LIPS, AND AN ACHE IN HER HEAD, AND A BEARD IN HER EAR "
AS HE CARVES ONE MORE NOTCH--- IN THE BUTT OF HIS GOLD HANDLED CANE..
LOVE IT !
NOW SOME CONCERN ABOUT MO BULLYING THE MINI'S-- I SEE NO SIGN OF IT..I WAS CONCERNED... IT IS COLD OUT TONIGHT AND IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE FOR ONE TO STAND IN THE DOOR AND BLOCK THE OTHERS.. THAT IS A HORSE THING.. MO BLOCKING THE MINI'S OR THE OTHER WAY ROUND A MINI-- OR POCKETS BLOCKING MO--- THEY CERTAINLY KEPT HER AWAY FROM THE HAY FEEDER YESTERDAY..
I LOOKED BACK AND THEY WERE ALL LYING DOWN WITH MO EATING HAY- THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IF THERE WAS ANY FEAR OF MO... HOWEVER... YOU ALL HAVE TO GET USED TO DONKEY CONVERSATIONS... THEY TALK TO EACH OTHER WITH GESTUREES VERY SUBTILE.. A SLIGHT LIFT OF THE HEAD-- FLICK OF THE TAIL IS ONE DEFINITELY TELLING ANOTHER WHAT THEY THINK OF WHATEVER IS HAPPENING... I WATCHED AS MOE TIPTOED AROUND TEH OTHERS AND STOPPED AND WENT OUT THE DOOR... POCKETS FOLLOWED.. THEN THE REST... AND IT IW NOW EMPTY-- I WOULD THINK IT TOO COLD... BUT APPARENTLY THEY DON'T , BECAUSE THEY ALL FOLLOWED HER OUT THE DOOR.
SO STOP PUTTING PEOPLE TENDENCIES ON DONKEYS-- THE DONKEYS ARE BETTER THAN THAT...
CRANNEY IS HERE.
This morning Eve had PT. She did so great!
About a year and a half ago we thought Eve had achieved some nice mobility after several surgeries and a couple breaks she just didn't bounce back like she normally had. Even then Eve hadn't walked independently all the way from the car into the store and back. So today her PT gave her some of the more challenging obstacles we had worked on in the past she totally did them!!! So at this point we are now saying Eve is as strong as she was then and even more independent now that she has Finn to help her with longer distances!
This is sooo amazing! In just 2 months Finn has helped her with this. This is how AMAZING the Service Dog Project is! This is what they do for all their recipients! Such an amazing thing they do all run on 100% donations. Thank you also to all of you who contribute to SDP! We are so grateful!
I'm just so excited to see how much stronger she gets and how much more quickly she will bounce back with Finn's help! She really needed him to give her stability but I think maybe even more importantly confidence!
