JUNE 17 2017
I DROVE DOWN AND UP THE DRIVEWAY 14 TIMES YESTERDAY JUST TO ENJOY THE RIDE !!IT
 CAN BE DONE VERY FAST !! BUT IT IS OUTSIDE THE GATE.. SO NO DOGS THERE... LUCKILY WE DIDN'T DO THE INSIDE AREA... WHICH IS STILL BPRETTY BUMPY 
***
SARA TELLS ME 6 PUPS IN THE KITCHEN OVERNIGHT IS ALOT EASIER TO DEAL WIHT.... I CAN'T IMMAGINE WHY..-- I HEAR "WAIT WAIT"  AND THERE IS NO SCREAMING... THISIS A GOOD THING... ALSO SHE CAN NAME THE PUPS AS SHE SPOON FEEDS THEM AND LIFE IS SOOOO MUCH EASIER...OF COURSE THIS IS THE 6 WITH THE 3 NON BLACK... THE  OTHE SIX IN THE BARN  (ALL BLACK) DON'T GET CALLED BY NAME YET AT ALL.... THE MUSICIANS  HERE...---JAEGAR ELLA STING BOWIE BLAKE PRINCE

WE--SDP--- SENT 6 DOGS AND PEOPLE TO THE TECH FAIR IN BOSTON TO REPRESENT EBSCO-- AN IPSWICH COMPANY-- BIG COMPANY-- THAT DOES WIERD COMPUTER THINGS-- AND WANTED TO ATTRACT ANY TECH STUDENTS TO THEIR COMPANY-- 4 HARLS 2 BLACKS STOLE THE SHOW-- WALTER EXCELLED AS JUDGE FOR A PING PONG MATCH WATCHING EACH MOVEMENT OF THE BALL WITH GREAT ACCURACY..  CAUSING MEGAN AND I TO  WONDER IF WE HAD GOLDEN RETRIEVERS OR LABS THAT ALL LOOK ALIKE  IF WE WOULD  HAVE DRAWN THE  SAME ATTENTION-- I HAVE DONE THAT KIND OF THING FOR YEARS AS "ANIMAL EPISODES"--  TRADE SHOWS...WITH THAT FOOLISH BED... QUEEN SIZE BED ON THE WAGON ( WHO'S 4 WHEELS TURN SO IT FOLLOWS WHATEVER IS TOWING IT.)  THAT POOR BED IS IN TOUGH SHAPE-- BUT I AM SURE IT COULD BE USED CREATIVELY TO DO DRIVE BYS FOR CORPORATIONS TO BREAK THE  WORKDAY MONOTONY... 
****
ONE OF THE FACTORS THAT HAS MADE SDP THE SUCCESS- HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY SKILL OF MINE... IT IS IS THE ACCIDETNTAL FACT THAT THE DANVERS ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER YEARS AGO   ?1982? PICKED UP A HARL DANE AND THE TOWN DID NOT HAVE A CAGE BIG ENOUGH FOR HIM... SO SHE STUCK HIM IN ONE OF MY HORSE STALLS-  I HAD SEEN DANES BEFORE-- BUT I HAD NEVER SEEN A SOPTTED ONE...- TEH A/C OFFICER SAID NO ONE WANTED HIM AND I COULD HAVE HIM... OUR FRIEND GOLDIE ( GHOST OF THE LEFTHAND DRAWER) WAS AT WORK.... SO  I KEPT  HIM ---  HE WAS SUCH A CHARACTER- COMIC RELIEF IN PERSON...-- AT THAT TIME I HAD NO NEIGHBORS, THERE WAS NO 'LAUNDRY BUILDING" - AND I ALREADY HAD A PIT BULL, YELLOW LAB, BEAGLE AND THE LEFT OVERS FROM POLLY'S LITTER (FEMALE BASSET HOUND BEING  BRED TO A BLACK LAB= BLACK BASSETS)-  IN THE COURSE OF THE NEXT FEW YEARS  THANKS TO THE SAME ANINAL CONTROL PERSON... I SEEMED TO AQUIRE 2 MORE DANES...  AND BY 1988 I WENT TO NEW YORK TO BUY ONE FROM  WHAT SEEMED TO BE THE LEADING DANE  KENNEL IN THE US "BMW KENNEL"   A BLACK FEMALE "TIFFANY" --   WHO HAD A LITTER OF 8  IN WHAT IS NOW THE OVERFLOW ROOM-- MABELINE,FEISTY,DOTTIE JACK, OK, POKER,ELLIE PEBBLES--  WHICH I KEPT---WE DID "JOBS"--- TRADE SHOWS,TOWN "FESTS" PARADES... WITH THE 8- PUT MY KDS THRU COLLEGE WITH THE BUNCH----AND THAT BED....
TECHNICALLY  OK WAS A MERLE - AND NOT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT DANES, THE OWNER OF THE STUD I USED TOLD ME TO GET RID OF HER---   IT WAS TECHNICALLY THE FIRST SERVICE DOG I PRODUCED... SOME GUY  FROM ?NH?  HAD A DAUGHTER IN A WHEELCHAIR WHO WANTED TO GO TO THE PIZZA PLACE WITH HER FRIENDS AND HE WANTED A  BIG DOG TO GO WITH HER.. SO I SOLD HER FOR $600.00- I WONDER IF THERE IS MORE TO THAT STORY NOW??? I NEVER HEARD ANYMORE FROM THEM...

DOTTIE LOOKED LIKE OPAL-- SHORT AND BROAD-- MABLEINE WAS  MORE  SVELT  -- I EVENTUALLY BRED THOSE TWO... AND I WAS OFF AND RUNNING.... WITH THE BED.... OFTEN PULLED BY MY HITCH OF 8 DONKEYS--  THE LAST PARADE I DID OF THAT WAS IN BEVERLY---IT WAS A HUGE EFFORT TO HARNESS ALL THOSE DONKEYS AND  KEEP 3 DOGS ON THE BED... SO I WENT  TO GOLF CART PULLING THE BED.. A LOT EASIER -- JUST ANOTHER LAYER OF GOLD PAINT AND WE WERE READY TO ROLL.

THAT MIGHT BE A FUN THING TO DO SOME DAY THIS SUMMER FOR EBSCO   -- ARRIVE IN THEIR PARKING LOT WITH A BED FULL OF DOGS.  IT WOULD TAKE VERY LITTLE PREP... GOLD PAINT AND A SUPPLY OF DISNEY BLANKETS TO COVER...  EBSCO HAS GREAT LUNCHES.... 
*****
I HAVE A FRIEND ANN G. -- WHO STARTS EVERY CONVERSATION WITH  "NOW LISTEN" .-----. WHICH STARTED ME THINKING ( AT 2AM..) 
...--- PROFESSIONAL ANNOUNCERS HAVE VERY DISTINCT ENUNCIATION... BUT THE PEOPLE  THEY INTERVIEW SEEM TO LACE THE CONVERSATION WITH  "YA KNOW"   OR "I MEAN"  AND "AAAAAAAAH" s ---  SO I HAVE BEGUN TO NOTICE HOW OFTEN SO MANY PEOPLE DO THAT RIGH HERE AT SDP ( INCLUDING ME) ...  SO MANY THAT WE AS LISTENERS TOTALLY ACCEPT IT. ( I THINK).. EXCEPT THE BRITISH---  MAYBE I HAV E NOT HIT THE RIGHT BRITS.... BUT I HAVE NOT SEEN/ HEARD ANY GENERIC BRITS  SAY "YA KNOW?"  
THEN I GOT TO WONDER WHAT IT IS THAT MAKES FOR THE  BRITISH ACCENT.. THEY USE THIER MOUTHS DIFFERENTLY..
IN THE STATES YOU SAY "I'VE BEEN THERE" AND IT SOUNDS LIKE " I'VE BIN THERE"  WHERE THE BRIT WOULD SAY "I'VE BEEEEEEN THERE" - WE SAY WE SPEAK ENGLISH IN THE USA... THEY  WONDER WHY WE SAY THAT.
*****
SATURDAY-- TIME TO RUN UP AND DOWN THE DRIVEWTA SOME MORE... HEY... I REALLY WANT TO GET THE   $20,000 WORTH OF FUN OUT OF IT..

TIME TO EAT THE DONUTS...
