it is gonna be my kind of a good day.... because sugary sticky icing keeps appearing on my fingers-- goldie has it stored somewhere and it keeps coming back to remind me to eat candy... ( like i needed reminding??)
well there is an article out that says reduced eating behaviors can bring on dementia-- OK>>>> sounds good to me....i can go along with that.... especially with cheese cake in the fridge... i prefer that even to lima beans... please don't send me any---- you have no idea how difficult it was to eat my way thru the 3 cheesecakes some CP from tenn left in the fridge- to make matters worse one was even nutella..
today will also be a left headed day... i wear only one hearing aid... knowing tht at some point i will lose or ruin the ones i am wearing... i usually wear only one-- the right one... --sure enough-- it died and needs to go to the costco hearing aid hospital.
--- well--------my left ear is complaining because it has not been accustomed to sticking that thing in the ear canal- even tho my right ear has no problem with it... how often does one run into a statement made in your youth that eventually comes back to haunt you? my ear situation is reminiscintant of trying to teach a horse to paw with one foot..... i have often been critical of a horse's intelligence becaue if it takes you 17 days to teach a horse to paw with his right foot, it will take 17 days to teach it to paw with his left.. indicated to me a lack of basic right-left intelligence... and here i am-- i do not see why my right ear can not tell the left "forget it-- do not play teh itch factor"
big challange of the day.... about 18 tons of stone dust is to be dumped in front of the barn door with the hopes that the brave souls from timber land who will be here sat morning to do community service... can schlep it into the stalls-- bucket by bucket... the constant problem is that the stall floor keeps dropping- and right now mo's stall is down about 15 inches--- you can see the problem under the bottom board of teh donkey stalll- thru the years we hafee tried all kinds of "how to get the stone dust ibn the stall " puzzles-- this time will be no different..-- we hae a bunch of people coming from TIMBERLAND ( WHO GAVE US THOSE WONDERFUL BOOTS) --- so i am thinking the least stressful would be a bucket brigade of not quite full buckets
and then----- I REMEMBERED all those roller laddery kind of things to move merchandise around factories... camera mark gave us 5 sections-- tanner yesterday perfected the slope and amt of stone dust to get along the alleyway of the barn to be dumped in stalls... it could work.... it could also turn into a i love lucy in the candy factory show.
i have done this before.... it is documented in janine's book "dogs donkeys and the circus" ( on amazon) when my kids were young ?8-10 years old? we had a horse get into a building and fall thru the floor into a 12 ' round cistern with about 6 inches of water in it... immediately i had fire dept, police, and every neighbor standing around looking at me with a bewildered " what are you going to do now?" it was nearly 5pm-- the horse was fine-- and by now the little 4H kid who owned the horse was in the hole with the horse...- i called the local gravelpit and had them deliver a huge truck of sand.. and a dozen neighbors with buckets scooped and passed buckets to be poured into the hole as the horse circled -by then we had boston news / tv trucks/ lights etc... and by 11 pm he stepped out the last 36 inches... i distinctly remember a very young child asleep on the sand, in the dark... she had been filling buckets and fell sleep while everyone worked around her...
so it can be done ... hopefully tomorrow..
