DEC 10 2017
FROM A PILOT FRIEND I WAS INTRODUCED TO  THE WEATHER  AT    http://www.intellicast.com/Local/WxMap.aspx  AND I SEE  THAT THE CURRENT MAP SHOWS THE TAIL OF THE SNOW LEAVING AS I TYPE-  I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE HAVE.. BECAUSE WE ALSO HAVE TANNER WHO IS LOOKING FORWARD TO PLOWING--- WELLL TANNER  YOU GO RIGHT AT IT...  HE IS A DARN GOOD TRACTOR DRIVER-- AND THO EVENTUSLLY HE MAY HIT SOMETHING, HE IS CAREFU]L-- ESPECIALLY OF OUR NEW HOT TOP  DRIVEWAY...  IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE TO TEAR THAT ALL UP IN ONE SWIPE...
 AS FOR  BEING AMUSED.......THE NUMBER OF THE PICK UP OWNERS IN NEW ENGLAND... WHO WERE ROARING AROUND YESTERDAY WITH BRAND NEW SNOWPLOWS WAS FRIGHTENING....  IN AN EFFORT TO "GET READY"  I DID THE MOST CRITICAL.... I FILLED MY GAS TANK AND BOUGHT A GALLON OF CHICKEN/CORN CHOWDER AT THE LOCAL "FARMERS MARKET..."  IT IS WONDERFUL STUFF...  IT ALSO COMES  BAGGED -- OR COMES IN A BAG???  I WATCHED THEM FILL THE GALLON CONTAINER FROM A SQUISHEY PLASTIC BAG...-- IF THAT IS A COMEERCIALLY PREPARED SOUP, BOY SHOULD WE FIND OUT WHERE TO GET IT.... LIKE THE RESTAURANT SUPPLY PLACE WE NOW BELONG TO????  MAYBE THEY MAKE IT...  BUT FOR THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE HERE YESTERDAY... AND HOPEFULLY TODAY  IT WILL FEED A BUNCH...
**
WELL..... GOLDIE ( OUR GHOST OF THE LEFTHAND DRAWER)   WAS AT IT YESTERDAY-IN TRYING TO GET THE GALLON  OF SOUP,  I WAS TOO EARLY AT THAT MARKET..... AND DECIDED TO GO TO COSTCO... WHER I BOUGHT A HUNK OF PORK  THAT LOOKED LIKE THE LUMP OF PORK THAT THAT CHEF FROM N.Y PREPARED FOR US A FEW WEEKS AGO ... THAT WE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT..-- THE GOLDIE PART CAME AS I LOADED THE PORK INTO MY CARRIAGE... A MAN STOPPED ME TO D=SAY HOW BEAUTIFUL SIZZLE WAS..  AND WELL B EHAVED.. ( THANK HEAVENS) . THE GOLDIE PART... HIS DAUGHTER MOVED TO BOSTON TO WORK FOR   EMBARK-- CANINE DNA TESTING OUTFIT IN BOSTON...- AND HERE WE ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF WATSON HAS ANY HIDDEN PROBLELMS IN HIS GENES...-- MADE ME WONDER/. REMEMBER .. MAYBE A YEAR AGO ... BOTH TUFTS AND MIT ASKED FOR MY BREEDING RECORDS.. AND A FEW DNA SAMPLES--  WELL IF THEY ARE NOT CONNECTED TO THIS EMBARK, THEN MABYT I CAN OFFER THEM OUR RECORDS AND SAMPLES OF 150 DOGS TO BOLSTER THIER DANE  DATA... IN RETURN  FOR DOING A QUICK READ ON WATSON-- BECAUSE WE NEED TO MAKE A DECISION  IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS...THE GUY LIVED IN MARBLEHEAD... I HAD ONLY ONE POKERCHIP IN MY POCKET ...WHICH I GAVE HIM...  BUT FIRST THING MONDAY I NEED TO TRY AND GET IN TOUC WITH THIS EMBARK OUTFIT-- SOUNDSS LIKE FOR $59 THEY WILL TELL ME IF WATSON IS A DANE... OR SOMETHING...
** 
THERE IS A HUGE PROBLEM WITH DANES... IN THAT ---THE MINUTE YOU HAE A DANE GET A  MINOR PUNCTURE WOUND IN THERI BACK FOOT,  EVERYONE  -- VETERNAIRIAN OR BREEDER/OWNER WILL IMMEDIATELY SAY "HIP DISPLASIA"  JUST BEFORE THEY SAY  "PITY THEY DON'T LAST MORE THAN 5 YEARS"  THIS IS WHY  I LIKE THE NOVEMBER PICTURE ON THE CALENDAR... NOT EVERY DANE CAN STAND ON THEIR HIND LEGS LIKE THE 2 OF OURS IN THAT PHOTO...   WE ARE DOING PRETTY WELL COMPAIRED TO WHAT THE REST OF THE DANE WORLD WORRIES ABOUT...  I SHOULD NOT TEMPT FATE LIKE THAT... EARLY MONDAY MORN I WIL TRY AND MEET GEORGE TO LOOK AT THE XRAYS OF WATSON..-- WATSON DOES HAVE TH E LOOSE EYELIDS -- FOR THAT DRUNK LOOK... BUT THAT IS NOT ENOUGH FOR ME TO DISMISS HIM... ABD THEN TRY AND TALK WITH EMBARK...
*****
THESE BUCKEYES ARE GETTING ..BIG,LOUD AND ACTIVE...WITH LOADS OF TOYS, IT IS STILL THE CARDBOARD BOX THAT WILL QUIET THEM DOWN TO NORMAL DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR.. A SHOEBOX SIZE CARDBOARD GIVES EACH OF THE 6 ROOM TO GRAB AND TUG... THE OTHER RESPECTIVE ACTIVITIES IS---  ONE OF THESE WATER BOTTLES THAT IS  VERY TOUGH BUT THIN... FOR A GRAB,  RUN AND CHASE  EXERCISE--FOR THE QUIET KNAW... THE PURINA WET FOOD TUBS ARE THE PREFERRED....
THOSE TUBS HAVE  WONDERFUL SECOND LIVES-- RUN THRU THE DISHWASHER, THEN FILLED WITH LEFTOVERSAND TEH GREAT LID.... , IT IS POSSIBEL TO USE A PLASTIC FORK-- MICRO  ONE OF THOSE FOR BREAKFAST OR LUNCH ANYWHERE  AND THROW THE WHOLE THING AWAY.. NO DISHWASHING... PLUS IT IS  A  QUANTITY CONTROL...- SEEING AS WE USE 15 TO 20 OF THEM A DAY  I AM SORRY TO SAY MANY GET THROWN OUT... I DID TAKE ABOUT 1000 TO THE LOCAL GRADE SCHOOL AND TH ETEACHER WAS THRILLED.  I DID FOR A WHILE  INSIST WE CLEAN THEM ALL AND PUT THEM IN THE HAY LOFT IN GARBAGE BAGS,  BUT THE HAY LOFT BEGAN TO FILL WITH PURINA TUBS...
I HAVE STUFF STORED IN THEM ALL OVER THE PLACE... LIKE ALL  THE PIECES FOR THIS MONKEY  FIST BUSINESS
I REALLY HAVE AN ON GOING BUSINESS WITH THESE FOOL THINGS... MAKING THEM IS ALMOST A NERVOUS HABIT WHILE I WATCH THE NEWS...   WE HAVE 1 2 3 AND 4 INCH ONES--   THE BEST ARE THE 1 AND 2 INC COTTON ONES AS Z IPPER PULLS AND , KEY CHAINS .  BEING COTTON  THEY CAN BE DYED ANY COLOR...  THE 3 AND 4 INCH ( 3" BLUE AND 4" ORANGE ) ARE POLY SOMETHING AND  DECORATIVE.. I GUESS.. THE ONLY USE I HAVE HEARD FOR THEM IS TO HANG ON A DOORKNOB SO THE KNOB DOESN'T HIT THE WALL--   THE BIGGER ONES TAKE ALOT OF ROPE TO MAKE .... A L O T   OF ROPE...  THE VERY FEW 6" ONES- THE COST OF THAT WHITE COTTON ROPE IS PROHIBITIVE...

Carlene, 
I want to extend my thanks to you and all the staff at SDP for your assistance with my dogs during my recent surgical layup.  The dogs were more than well cared for while vacationing at Crazy Acres, I worried that they might not want to come home with me!  They seem to be in excellent condition and to have been very pleased with their visit.  They love the attention and care they get while there.
   I’ll be returning soon I hope to pick up several calendars, I’ve been gifting them to various friends up here in NH and everyone looks forward to them every year.

Again special thanks to Pam, Grace, Kelly and everyone else who spent time and attention on 
Timothy and Sarge.  They and I gratefully appreciate it.  😎 PAUL
