JULY 9 2017
YOU AIN'T SEEN NUTTIN YET.. I HAVE BEEN AROUND... AND THERE IS NO BABY ANIMAL AS CUTE AS A BABY DONKEY...  MOSTLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE SUCH FRIENDLY  PERSONALITIES RIGHT FROM THE START..--EVEN QUICKER THAN PUPPIES-  

OUR TERRIBLY THIN RESCUE DONKEY WORKED VERY HARD AND PRODUCED A LOVELY BABY YESTERDAY  IN THE G-TENT... BY HER CHOICE...  I WAS GLAD FOR THE ZOOM LENS BECAUSE THERE IS  NO WAY WE COULD MOVE HER AND UPSET HER PLANS-- POOR  THING-- HAS GAINED WEIGHT SINCE SHE HAS BEEN HERE BUT SHE IS STILL TERRIBLE LOOKING.  I HOPE TODA WE HAVE ENOUGH PEOPLE AROUND TO GIVE HER AT LEAST A QUICK RINSE OFF SPONGE BATH.......  BECAUSE DIRTY, SHE LOOKS EVEN WORSE.

 MY PLAN..... IF I AM ALLOWED... IS TO  GET HER IN THE PUPPY HILL HEAVY GRASS AREA ( OVER TEH LEECH FIELD)  AND LET HER GRAZE FOR A BIT... AND HAVE  THE YOUNG AND STRONG VISITORS  ... PASS BUCIKETS OF WARM WARTER OVER TEH FENCE  TO TRY AND CLEAN HER UP WHILE SHE GRAZES...
 THIS IS WHERE THE INTERNET CAN GO SQUIRRELEYII IF SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT KNOW THE DETAILS GETS A PICTURE OF HER BONES AND STARTS POSTING  HOW AWFUL SDP IS FOR ALLOWING ....ETC.... PICTURES... LIKE SOUND BITES .. CAN BE MANIPULATED...

I REMEMBER--- DURING THE ERA OF JANINE'S BOOK ( DOGS AND DONKEYS) -- BUNCH OF 4H KIDS AND  THE CIRCUS....-- I HAD A PART TIME JOB AT SOME VET'S OFFICE PITCHING IN FOR AN ILL SECRETARY-- AND TO GET THERE I WENT PAST A THIN PONY  TIED TO A TREE... HOT JULY-- NO WATER BUCKET IN EVIDENCE--  SAME THING  THE NEXT DAY--  RATHER THAN REPORT TO THE ANIMAL CONTROL, I WENT UP TO THE DOOR AND  SAID  " I HAVE A 4H KID WHO COULD USE A PONY LIKE THIS-- I WLL GIVE YOU $25 FOR HIM"  THE PEOPLE WERE GLAD TO GET RID OF THE PROBLEM...  MISERABLE LOOKING SPOTTED PONY-- I HESITATED BRINGING HIM INTO OUT BARN OF  ?14 HORSES?  SO WE MADE A PEN OF THE FRONT LAWN- UNDER THE TREES-- WITH  HAY, GRAIN, WATER...  NAMED HIM "BOINES"   ---TO ASSESS WHAT WE HAD.. I FIGIRED IF HE  HAD ANYTHING  REALLY WRONG WITH HIM HE WOULD BE DEAD.   I WAS AFRAID TO WORM HIM FOR FEAR THE WORMS WERE HOOLDING HIS BONES TOGETHER... 
SOOOOOO..... MY NEIGHBORS- WELL MAYBE PEOPLE DRIVING BY--- SOMEONE .. CALLED TEH MSPCA WHO ARRIVED IN 2 CARS WITH ALL THEIR UNIFORMS -   SECOND CAR WAS? REPORTERS....  I STOPPED ANY PHOTOGRAPHS---- SITUATION GOT  A LITTLE TIGHT WHEN I ASKED THEM  FOR A $25 DONATION TO REPAY ME FOR DOING WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE.. 
BONES WAS A NICE PONY AND ONCE HE HAD A LITTEL FAT ON HIM WE GAVE HIM TO ANOTHR FAMILY IN TOWN--  I SAW HIM OFTEN  IN LYNNFIELD CENTER  AS HE WAS A TYPICAL PONY IN THE ESCAPE DEPARTMENT.

IT WAS ALSO MY FIRST RUN IN WITH A BUILDING DEPARTMENT...--  BONES COULD USE A SHED-- AND I NEEDED A MAGAZINE DSHED-- SO I DECIDED TO BUILD A "ONE CAR "  SORT OF DEAL... AND  NOT KNOWING ANY BETTER, WENT TO THE  TOWN HALL TO GET A BUILDING PERMIT.. THE GUY ASKED WHO WAS GOING TO BUILD IT-- I SAID "I AM"-- AND HE  ASKED IF I HAD ANY EXPEERIENCE-- WHICHI DID NOT... SO HE SAID "WELL THEN IT WON'T STAND UP LONG ENOUGH FOR YOU TO NEED A BUILDING PERMT" 

I SOLD THAT PLACE IN 1979 --- AS IS  WHERE IS----WITH NO REALATOR--- AND THAT SHED WAS PART OF TEH DEAL.  -- I DROVE BY 30 YEARS LATER AND IT WAS STILL STANDING... IT MAY STILL BE THERE...... COULD BE IT IS THE COATS OF PAINT HOLDING IT UP-- BUT IT WS THERE A FEW YEARS AGO.
 I HAVE A VERY LONG HISTORY  OF BEING INSULTED BY BUILDING  INSPECTORS-- IT IS A  WOMAN THING-- TIL  IPSWICH  "  YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE, YOU ARE ONLY A WOMAN"  WITH A WHOLE BUNDH OF LUMBER AND HARDWARE PEOPLE  IN THE MEANTIME-- ALL THE WAY TIL I GOT OLD-- NOW I LET 'EM HAVE IT IF ANY GUY  STARTS IN BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW THE NAME OF A PIECE OF HARDWARE... BUT I CAN DESCRIBE WHAT IT DOES- PLUS NOW THAT I HAVE MORE TIME ON MY HANDS.... SOMETIMES I CAN REALLY HAVE SOME FUN WITH THESE YOUNGER NEW EMPLOYEES...... SITTING DOWN  ON A PILE OF INSULATION  AT HOME DEPOT...AND BURSTING INTO TEARS OVER A SNIDE REMARK FROM SOME PUNK, IS NOT BEYOND ME.
 THERE ARE ALOT OF CUTE SAYING ABOUT "BEWARE OF THE OLD WOMAN WHO....."   RIGHT !


7:18 AM... GET ON WITH IT... I HAVEN'T EVEN READ THE EMAILS YET...

  1. Your post reminds me of what Dave Barry said: " a lone armature Built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic."
