I QUOTE " IT LOOKS LIKE THE PROTOCOL MIGHT NEED REVIEW" AND A FEW OTHER INANE COMMENTS AS TO WHY IN A FEW SHORT MONTHS A MONSTER SHIP PLOWS INTO THE SIDE OF A US NAVY SHIP.-- I DON'T WANT TO MINIMIZE THE 10 MISSING SAILORS AT ALL, BUT I DO HAVE QUESTIONS....
WASN'T ANYONE LOOKING? JUST WHAT IS THIS PROTOCOL THAT MIGHT NEED REVIEWING..?
IF NOT $4 MILLION DOLLAR RADAR, WHY NOT $2.99 BINOCULARS -- OR A SAILOR WITH NORMAL VISION ?...
THE HOLE IN THE SHIP LOOKS STRAIGHT ON WITH NO DRAG SIDEWAYS --- WAS IT JUST FLOATING AROUND OUT THERE....-- HOW COME THE NAVY WASN'T RUSHING TO GET OUT OF THE WAY?
HOW CAN A VESSEL THE SIZE OF A TANKER BE A SURPRISE ?
MY CAR CAN TELL ME BOTH WHERE I AM , AND WHAT TRAFFIC CONDITIONS ARE,
LETS HAVE AN AMERICAN THOUGHT-- WHY WAS ONE OF OUR SHIPS OVER THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE... CANT THE NAVY PRACTICE AVOIDING BIG COMMERCIAL SHIPS IN HARBORS CLOSER TO HOME-- AND THE SHIP REPAIR SHOPS-- LIKE CALIFORNIA ?
I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY THE HOLE IS AT/BELOW WATERLINE--- I THOUGHT THE FRONT END OF A SHIP HAD AN ABOVE WATER POINT MUCH HIGHER THAN THIS HOLE... AND THE LAST ONE HAD A POINT OF CONTACT BELOW THE WATERLINE ???
.. IT ALSO SEEMS STRANGE THAT THE DAMAGE WAS NOT WORSE CONSIDERING THE MASS-- WHAT DO I KNOW?? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING-- BUT THAT NEVER STOPPED ME....IT LOOKS LIKE THE TANKER SLOWED UP ( WHICH TAKES 2? MILES TO SLOW UP THAT MASS) AND THE NAVY DIDNT EVEN TRY TO GET OUT OF THE WAY??????
WE MUST HAVE SOME NAVY PEOPLE IN OUR CAMERA CROWD.. I KNOW WE HAVE ONE MERCHANT MARINE TYPE WHO READS THIS THING... MAYBE HE CAN GIVE US SOME ANSWERS...
EVEN THO---TO SOME OF THESE-- THERE IS NO ANSWER.
ON THE TOPIC OF WATER.... BRYAN DID COME OVER AND PUMP A GALLON OF WATER/ELECTROLITES INTO EACH OF THE SICK DONKEYS.. THIS SHOULD HELP BIG TIME... HOWEVER THAT DID NOT STOP PEOPLE FROM COMPLAINING THEY DONKEYS DID NOT DRINK ANY WATER LAST NIGHT.... HOPEFULLY THEY DIDN'T NEED ANY... THE 2 PREGO LADIES ARE LOOKING BETTER... GRACE DID GET THEM OUT FOR GRASS.. AND THE PAINTED LADY CHOSE TO GRAZE ON THE WORST POSSIBLE SPINDLY PIECES F GRASS OPNTHE EDGE OF THE STONE DUST AREA... THERE IS GRASS THAT LOOKS MUCH BETTER TO ME, UNDER THE SHADE TENT WHERE MO HAS NOT REACHED... EVERYTHING ELSE IS PRETTY CHEWED UP... BUT WE COULD NOT CONVINCE HER.
BRYAN IS SET TO RETURN TUESDAY UNLESS ONE GOES INTO LABOR-- AFTER WORRYING ABOUT THE JENNIES, TEH PREGNANCIES ARE A SE[ARATE WORRY.. WE ARE DOING ALL WE CAN...
THERE IS A WONDERFUL PICTURE OF BUD DRIVING MO IN HER NEW HARNESS-- HE REALLY LOOKS THE PART.. PROBLEM THERE IS TO GET A HANDLE ON THIS PROCESS BEFORE MNO REALIZES WE DON'T HAVE A CLUE.. WE DO HAVE A RACING JOG CART-- 2 BICYCLE WHEELS WIH SHAFTS--I WILL TRY THAT WITH HER SOON SHE SEEMS TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT SHE IS DOING... AND IN HARNESS SHE SEEMS TO WHOA WHEN ASKED TO DO SO.
WHOA IS MUCH MORE CRITICAL THAT GITTEE UP-- JUST LIKE IN A CAR BRAKES ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN ACCELERATION,
YOU CAN NOT ACCELLERATE AT THE RATE WITH WHICH YOU CAN DECELLERATE-- SOMETHING LOST ON MANY OWNERS OF 4WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLES.
AFTER TEH SHOCK OF A NEW WEBSITE BY EXPLORE, I AM BEGINNING TO LIKE IT... IT MAY SHOCK THE YOUNGSTERS AROUND HERE... EVEN TURNING ON MY COMPUTER IS CONFUSING TO ME... BUT I HAVE FOUND THE FEW SIMPLE WAYS TO FIND WHAT I WANT WITHOUT HAVING THE THING GIVE THE WEATHER AND TRAFFIC REPORT FOR BOISE IDAHO.. I KNOW A FEW PEOPLE ARE ANGRY ABOUT THE CHANGE.. THAT HAPPENS- ESPECIALLY WITH MY "AGE GROUP" --REALISTICALLY I THINK I AM ANGRY BECAUSE I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW OTHER S CAN DO SO MANY FANCY THINGS WITH THEIR PHONES AND COMPUTERS AND I AM HELPLESS..
BUT I CAN NOW GET THE EXPLORE LIVE PICTURES AND THE COMMENTS... THIS I S ALL I CAN COPE WITH-- THER IS A RUMOR THAT COURTNEY WILL TRY AND TEACH ME THINGS THIS AFTERNOON AROUND 5PM MAIL CALL.... HOWEVER..... I PROMISE TO KEEP IT EXTREMELY SIMPLE-- BECAUSE I DON'T DEAL WITH ANYTHING BUT SIMPLE -- I LEAVE TEH REST TO THE NEAREST 12 YEAR OLD.
Rogue is doing great. It has been a long summer at home. Haven't been doing much because both my kids are on the gymnastics team and have had gymnastics practice daily! We have spent most of the summer at home and taking walks around the neighborhood! My adventures are limited with 4 kids and John not home much. Rogue loves when her harness goes on and is always ready to help. Neuropathy has caused so many problems and rogue knows when I need her. She has been the best friend I could ask for. She adores my kids and is very gentle to my two year old. I wish I had more adventures to talk about. Rogue has learned to open the baby gates and push the door open if it is not closed completely to follow me where I go. So I have to watch the gates for the steps closely now. She is extremely smart and communicates a lot. She really has matured and isn't afraid of much. I wish I had more exciting stories to share. I hope to make it to dog fest. My husband doesn't have his work schedule for September yet. I hope to know soon!
Thank you so much ! I am very proud of how much service dog project has grown and all the people you have changed their lives for the better! From starting out with Annie to now. It is so amazing! My life most certainly is much better!
Rogue and melissa
