JUNE 20 2017

#4 steve  and jeri are here from ohip  and have tackled teh mess behind teh g-tent...( white giraffe tent...)it is like  a "this is your life... pit" ...  THAT PIT IS SORT OF  MY LIFE IN FENCING... long long ago... when i started having to take things like horses or donkeys into 
improbable places--  like hotels.... th4 guy who supplied teh new england zoos etc had fencing..iron welded 5 pipes high 10 feet long and went together into a square  or circle with 2 pins.... and weighed a TON---  2 PEOPLE ON ONE SECTION....... UNTIL I FOUND SOME MADE THE SAME WAY WITH ELECTRICAL CONDUIT--- MUCH LIGHTER ONE PERSON TO CARRY-- OH THE CANS OF RED PAINT I WENT THRU KEEPING THOSE HOTEL TYPE ACCEPTABLE...WHAT A WONDERFUL DISCOVERY WAS HOG PANELS ( LATER CALLED HORSE PANELS AND A FEW OTHER THINGS)  THOSE WERE 6"SQUARES OF 1/4 INCH RODS...  ONE PERSON COULD CARRY 2 AT A TIME -A PIECE OF ELECTRICAL TYE WRAP AND IT WAS SIMPLE--- THEN IN JOB\S WHICH INVOLVED ****"THE BED****  WE COULD PUT ALL THE PANNELS ON THE BED AND IT WAS ONE TRIP-- PLUS YOU COULD STRING ALL THESE  PANELS IN ANY SHAPE AS LONG AS IT WAS NOT A STRAIGHT LINE..... 
 EVENTALLY THE DONKEYS GOT USED TO THE IDEA OF STAYING WHEREVER WE SPREAD HAY- AND WE LEFT FENCING HOME ENITRELY....   IT WAS ALL STORED (? STORED???? GIVE ME A BREAK.... TOSSED IS MORE THE WORD) BEHIND TEH G-TENT...
 ON TOP ORF THAT... AS MY INTEREST CHANGED FASTER THAN MY POCKETBOOK-- I ACCEPTED DONATIONS OF USED CHAIN LINK PANNELS MUCH IS STILL  IN USE AROUND HERE--MUCH OF THE TIME ON HILLS WHERE YOU CAN NOT HOOK RECTANGLES TOGETHER IN ANY TIDY FASHION.... PLUS JANIINE CAME HOME WITH A WHOLE HORSE TRAILER FULL OF ROLLED 8' CHAIN LINK ONLY-- WHICH WAS HEAVY, TANGLED AND TOOK FOREVER TO UNTANGLE AND UNLOAD TEH ROLLED STACK OF CHAIN...

 THE REASON WE WERE "SO LUCKY" TO BE GIVEN ALL THIS CHAIN LINK WAS... I AM TOLD..( AT LEAST AS OF 10 YEARS AGO) THAT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE/ ILLEGAL  TO THROW CHAIN LINK AWAY IN ANY DUMP/TRANSFER STATION---  REASON BEING BECAUSE ALL THE TRANSFER STATIONS AROUND HERE TOOK STUFF TO MASSIVE GRINDING PLACES WHERE THEY TURNED IT INTO BURNABLE TRASH... SOMEWHERE  IN MAINE???  AND YOU CAN NOT GRIND UP CHAIN LINK--- I FINALLY FOUND A USE FOR THOSE ROLLS-- HOLDING DOWN THE ARENA'S   WHITE COVER...

BUT THE REST OF THE PIPES AND PANELS-- WELL--STEVE AND JERI HAVE THEM ALL ORGANIZED NOW... 
PROBLEM IZ... WELL THERE ARE ALOT OF PROBLEMS....IT ONCE WAS VALUABLE TO ME AND I HAVE TROUBLE  FORGETTING THAT NOW IT IS REALLY TRASH...  BECAUSE I CAN ALWAYS THINK OF WHERE I COULD USE IT....  LIKE..... 

 SINCE WE HAVE THE ICE BUILDING NEARLY 100%   I CAN MAYBE FINISH UP THE  "SHED" WHICH WILL BE IN THE FOOTPRINT OF THE "OLD ARENA"   FIRST THING WILL BE TO FENCE  OFF TEH DOGS  IN THE FLAT FIELD SO WE CAN WORK ON THE SHED AREA.. 
I ONCE HAD ALL TEH 4 X 6 X12' LUMBER R AND SHEETS OF PLYWOOD TO FINISH THE SHED... BUT THOSE HAVE WANDERED... AND TEH GRASS HAS GROWN--WHILE I GOT DISTRACTED WITH THE NEIGHBORS AND BUILDING INSPECTOR..  
**** 
SOME CHURCH GROUP FROM VERMONT WAS HERE YESTERDAY...14 KIDS-- HIGH SCHOOL SIZE--  ( USEABLE SIZE)
SINCE WE HAD HDA COMPLAINTS FROM THE CAMERA PEOPLE ABOUT THE TENT BEING IN THE WAY OF THE CAMERA VIEW OF THE T TENT.... I GOT ALL THOSE KIDS TO PICK IT UP  -- OVER THE FENCE--- ACRTOSS TEH YARD TO THE  "DONKEY VIEWING AREA"  
****
 BIGEST PROBLEM FOR PROGRESS NOW IS MASTERSON AND TEH MANURE PILE MOVING-- WE HAVE BEEN MOVING THE PILE BY DRIVING IN THE AREA OF TEH ARENA RUN OFF-- MAKING BLACK MUD 18 INCHES DEEP-- SO WE NEED TO BULLDOZE A "PATH" AWAY FROM THE WATER-- ALOT OF WATER COMES OFF THAT ARENA  AND RUNS STRAIGNT FOR BEHIND THE G-TENT. 
*****

OH DEAR... IT IS 6:30 AND NO SINGING-- THEY ARE ALL SLEEPING  SORRY... I JUST CAN'T WAKE THEM....

From Bella's Mom:
Some fun on bikes! George didn't like that Gabi kept getting really close to Bella. He would push her arm with his head. I guess I have to feel like she will always be safe and no one will injure her with George around! Even family he can get protective. Such a good dog!

 YOU MUST ALLOW GEORGE HIS OPINION !  I HAVE SAID BEFORE  GEORGE IS CAPABLE OF STOPPING ANY FAMILY ROUGHHOUSING.. 
DOGS DO TALK TO OWNERS...I ADVISE LISTENING TO THEM..
