**************

I AM AN AVID COMPLAINER- JUST IN CASE YOU HAD NOT NOTICED.....AND WE... LINDA+++ HAD A RUN IN WITH VERIZON... THE TV'S ALL WENT OUT   LINDA CALLED VERIZON- THINKING IT WAS ONLY THE  "OFFICE" TV AND WAS TOLD THEY WOULD GIVE HER MORE EQUIPMENT IN 3 WEEKS... AND TEHN I NOTICED MY TV WAS DEAD... AND I STARTED IN....  CALLED-- ON HOLD-- CUT OFF--- CALLED BACK-- ON HOLD-- GOT AN ENGLISH SPEAKING PERSON...---I  BEGGED THEM "PLEASE DON'T CUT ME OFF  AGAIN"  -- AND THEY REALLY DID NOT--- WHILE I ACTUALLY HAD 2 TECH'S ON THE PHONE FINALLY A WOMAN WHO SAID SHE WOULD HAVE SOMEONE HERE "THIS AFTERNOON"... AND THEY FOLLOWED THRU 150%-- THEY CALLED 30 MIN LATER---TO SAY THE TECH WAS INB GEROGETOWN ... AN D WE  WERE HIS NEXT HOUSE CALL...  THEN HE CALLED AND SAID HE WOULD BE 10 MIN LATE- BUT WAS ON HIS WAY...-- THEN HE GOT HERE AND FIXED IT !  WOULD YOU BELIEVE THAT SERVICE???? WE HAVE  5 "SET BOXES" 3 HOUSE  ONE GUEST HOUSE AND ONE TRAINING ROOM... AND WE HAD SOME KIND OF  SIGNAL BOOSTER WHICH DECIDED  NOT TO BOOST...
THE CONCEPT OF NO TV WAS AN EDUCATIIONAL CATASTROPHY--  WHAT DOES ONE DO WITHOUT IT????  I WAS/AM  HORRIFIED TO SEE HOW XXXXXXXXX I HAVE BECOME.  IT IS NOT LIKE I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO...
IT IS ALSO MY NIGHT LIGHT.
*********
PEOPLE ( CAMERA PEOPLE)  ASK HOW I WRITE THIS EVERY MORNING ( SOME PEOPLE ASK WHY.....)  .. NOW THIS MAY BE HARD TO BELIEVE...  BUT I WAKE UP TOO EARLY  -- 2 - 3 AND I DO SIT UPS  IN BED-- THIS MORING 60 SIT UPS.. I KNOW BECAUSE I HAVE A PEN IN MY HAND,,, AND  AN INDEX CARD ON MY TOE--
 AND EVERY TIME I SIT UP , I MAKE A HASH MARK  4 UP ONE ACROSS  TO KEEP TRACK..  AND AS I AM UP-SITTING  I LISTEN TO THE TV - MOSTLY THE ADS  AND IT STARTS ME THINKING...  AND ALONG WITH A HASH MARK, I MAKE NOTES FOR THE DD... WHICH IS WHY MANY ARE RELATED TO ADVERTISING...
******
LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT SHORT TERM MEMORY  ( BEFORE I FORGET..) ----
AS I WAS GETTING DRESSED... I REALIZED YOU ALL MUST THINK I SLEEP IN MY CLOTHES BECAUSE MY USUAL "UNIFORM" AT THIS TIME OF YEAR IS A  "TEAL COLORED  SUN BLOCK SHIRT"   EVERY YEAR I BUY ONE OF THOSE  SUN BLOCK SHIRTS  -- THEY ARE EXPENSIVE-- I HAVE DONE THAT FOR MANY YEARS...  PROBLEM IS... IN WINTER, I GET THE CATA LOG AND VERY CAREFULLY PICK OUT A SHIRT-- THEY ONLY COME IN 4 OR 5 COLORS... AND AFTER LOOKING THEM OVER, I DECIDE TEAL IS A PRETTY COLOR-- AND I ORDER ONE..  WHEN I GET IT, I ADD IT TO MY CLOSET---   THIS YEAR I ADDED IT TO THE OTHER 3 TEAL SHIRTS THAT ARE BASICALLY IDENTICAL..
THAT CONCEPT IS EVIDENT IN MANY ASPECTS OF CRAZY ACRES...
WITH SHIRTS IT IS NOT REALLY A PROBLEM AS LONG AS I DON'T MIND WEARING THE SAME COLORED SHIRT  MANY TIMES.... HOWEVER... THE MORE SERIOUS CONCEPT--
I AM TRYING TO GET GREEN GRASS BY DOGFEST IN SEPTEMBER-- SO I TRY AND GET STUFF GROWOING BEFORE THE ARID AUGUST SETS IN...-- SEED IS OUT... HOSE IS FOUND..  I OWN A BUNCH OF SPRINKLERS--  SOMEONE ( PROBABLY RYAN) PUT THEM SOMEWHERE- ONE WOULD EXPECT IN THE VICINITY OF THE HOSES--  BUT NO.... SO I BOUGHT A COUPLE HAND ONES AND A CIRCULAR DEVICE DESIGNED BY  THE WIZARD OF OZ...  
ONE THING THAT MAKES CRAZY ACRES POSSIBLE IS THAT I HAVE SPENT HOURS BEING EDUCATED BY  THINGS LIKE SPRINKLING DEVICES-- AND THIS ONE... WITH ALL IT'S WIRES, SCRESWS AND FLAPS IS NO STRANGER TO ME....
AS I WAS DIDDLING WITH IT TO PURSUADE IT  TO SPRINKLE THE AREA BY PUPPY HILL IN A 1/2 CIRCLE, SOME WELL MEANING PERSON  CAME BY AND  SAID " OH THOSE THINGS ARE SUPPOSED TO WATER A FULL CIRCLE--  BETTER TAKE IT BACK AND GET ANOTHER-- THEY DON'T MAKE THEM TOO WELL" ...
 NOW...( THE CRITICAL PART)  IF THAT PERSON  WAS DOING THE WATERING  BY THEMSELVES  AND  RAN INTO THE FINIKY SPRINKLER  THEY  MIGHT RUN TO THE HARDWARE STORE AND BUY ANOTHER WITHOUT BOTHERING TO MENTION TO ME  THAT IW WAS NOT FUNCITIONIBNG AS THEY  THOUGHT I T SHOULD.
THIS HAPPENS MORE THAN I CARE TO TALK ABOUT LATEY--- PEOPLE ARE MAKING DECISIONS THAT ARE NEW TO THEM WHEN THEY REALLY NEED TO RUN  THINGS BY ME---OR SOMEONE.... LIKE BUD... OR DAVID...
I AM KIDDING????   WATER STARTED DRIPPING THRU THE CEILING AND WALL IN THE HALL- I WAS TOLD WITH GREAT AUTHORITY... IT WAS THE UPSTAIRS TOILET AND I BETTER CALL THE PLUMBER...  HAVING THAT  PARTICULAR PIECE OF EQUIPMENT DRIP WWATER THRU THE WALL  WAS NOT  MY IDEA OF  SOMETHING WHICH COULD BE DELAYED...-- SO I ASKEDS SOMEONE TO SEE WHERE  THE WATER WAS COMING FROM--  THEY REPORTED THE INTAKE AREA... I.E. PLAIN WATER-- SO THEY WRAPPED A WASHCLOTH AROND IT AND LET THE WATER  DRIP  INTO A BUCKET-- A GOOD FIX...  DUMP IT IN THE TUB ONCE INA WHLE AND WAIT FOR ANOTHER PLUMBING PROBLEM SO  WE CAN SAVE ON HOUSE CALLS..
UNDER CONTROL...  EXCEPT... THE  BROKEN TOILET RUMOR FLURISHED-- AND SO A WELL MEANING CP  DONATED ONE...  VERY NICE---IT LANDED IN THE GARAGE-- STEVE ( MEATCUTTER SEVE) SAID HE HAD 2 TOILETS HE DIDN'T NEED---- I WOUOLD SAY I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT HAPPENED AT HIS HOUSE, BUT IF YOU ARE COUNTING , SDP NOW HAS 3 WE DON'T NEED.
IN THE MEANTIME ... DAVID WAS STANDING AROUND ENJOYING THE BREEZE OF THE HEAT AND A/C UNITIS HE INSTALLED FOR US-- AND I MENTIONED THE UPSTAIRS LEAK...-- HE CAME BACK AND SAID  IT NEEDED A PIECE HE COUDD GET FROM THE HARDWARE STORE.. I HANDED HIM $10  - HE CAME BACK WITH $8.51  AND FIXED TEH " LEAK"-- IT NEEDED A NEW AIRIATOR  BECAUS E TH OLD ONE WAS PRODUCING A TINY SPRAY OF WATER WHICH  WAS DRIPPING OFF A PERFECTLY GOOD PIPE....  $1.49  FIXED.
***
I SHOULD HAVE LOOKED AT THE  BROKEN WHEELBARROW HANDLES BEFORE I BOUGHT THE NEW HANDLES-- WHICH I SHLDH NOT HAVE BOUGHT BECAUSE BY THE TIME I GOT HOME SOMEONE BOUGHT A NEW WHEELBAROW-- SO NOW, IN THE CORNER WE HAVE 2 HANDLES... THESE CORNERS ARE GETTING FULL OF "LATER I WILL" JOBS...
****
I COULD GO ON  AND ON-- WHE WHEEL ON THE LAUNDRY CART- SOMEONE BOUGHT A "DOLLY WHEEL"   WHICH DID NOT FIT...SO IT WS SET ASIDE AND A NEW LAUNDRY CART EMERGED---I SAW TEH OVERTURNED  CART IN THE CORNER... AND SAW IT NEEDED A MINOR ADJUSTMENT TO HAVE THE WHEEL FIT-- JODY FIXED IT  IN ? 10 MINUTES...-- NOW WE HAVE 2 CARTS..  AND MANY OTHER CORNERS OF THE PLACE ARE FILLED WITH  "SOMEDAY"  AND " LATER"  ITEMS TO BE FIXED...
******
ALL THIS CAUSED ME TO HAVE A NIGHTMARE LAST NIGHT ABOUT  HAVEING THE 12 PUPS IN THE HOUSE,  PLUS.....I FOUND ( IN MY NIGHTMARE) ANOTHER LITTER OF PUPS--  4 WIRE HAIRED TERRIERS- IN THE BACK OF ONE OF THE SHEDS- AND TEHY WERE FILTHY.   I AM SURE THAT WAS CAUSED BY  THE WHOLE OF CRAZY ACRES IS TEETERING ON THE BRINK OF TOO MUCH --- WHICH IS TOO GOOD TO BE THROWN OUT-- ( WE WILL USE THAT NEW TOILET  EVENTUALLY...  IF WE CAN FIND IT )
*****
I KNOW I DID BUY A RANGE EXTENDER FOR THE PHONE SO I COULD ANSWER THE HOUNE IN MY SUMMER -- OUTDOOR -- OFF ICE I N THE T TENT.  WE CAN'T FIND IT ... EXCEPT   WE DO HAVE  A 
BLACK BOX-- ALL WIRED IN  -- WITH NO DIRECTIONS - I DON'T DARE DISCONNECT IT BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS RUNNING...  MAYBE THA T IS IT....
