DEC 22,2017
FOOD HAS BEEN ORDERED TO SUSTAIN US OVER THE CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION-- AFTER LOOKING AROUND.. (AND SAMPLING- AT  WHICH I AM VERY GOOD ...)  THE  BEST WE FOUND WAS WHOLE FOODS SUPERMARKET..  SO WE HAVE COMING WHOLE MEALS    A TURKEY, A ROAST BEEF AND A VEGAN BUNCH OF STUFF.  FOR ABOUT 18 PEOPLE... WE ARE TO PICK IT ALL UP SUNDAY AFTERNOON... 3:00-- SO IT MAY BE 9 PEOPLE TIMES 2.
NOW FOR THE DETAILS.....
IT IS A HOLIDAY TRADITION....EVERYONE WHO OWNS A CAR IN BOSTON.. TAKES IT TO THE NEAREST SHOPPING MALL AND PARKS IT THERE..
THEY MUST WANT TO GET THEIR CARS OUT OF THE DRIVEWAYSO  THE POSTAL VEHICALS CAN DELIVER ALL THE STUFF THEY BOUGHT ONLINE???? 
***
THESE MALLS  TO BE READY FOR THE ONSLAUGHT   OF CARS   MAKES THE SPACE BETWEEN THE WHITE LINED PARKING SPOTS AS NARROW AS POSSIBLE.-- I BET THERE IS SOME REGULATION ABOUT THE NUMBER OF PARKING SPOTS REQUIRED PER STORE...  TOOK ME 3 SWINGS TO GET IN THE HANDICAPPED PARKING SPOT...  WHICH ALSO MEANT THAT  LEAVING THE BACK  WINDOWS  OPEN  ERASED THE POSSIBILITY FOR THE DRIVER OF THE CAR ON MY RIGHT SIDE TO GET IN THE DRIVERS SEAT BEAUSE OF 2 HUGE GREAT DANE HEADS.....I DO HAVE A LABEL I WEAR WHEN I LEAVE THEM N THE CAR-- WHICH I NEVER WOULD DO IN SPRING OR SUMMER--- IF I  FAINT OR FALL I HAVE DOGS IN MY CAR - DO NOT CARRY ME AWAY WITHOUT THEM.

THE CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCE IS... RIDICULOUS-- AND DARN FEW ARE SMILING AS THEY RUSH AROUND....
GOT ME THINKING....BACK  WHEN I BABYSAT FOR 20 CENTS AN HOUR  (AND CIGARETTES WERE 18 CENTS A PACK-- SO THEY HAD 2 PENNIES IN THE CELLOPHANE FOR THE VENDING MACHINES)... 1$ GOT YO A BIG SPAGETTI/MEATBALL DINNER AT "JOE'S" .. NOW I LISTEN TO THE BIG TAX BREAK FOR THE POOR, AVERAGE, OR WEALTHY-- NOW THAT $1 FOR THE POOR WOULD BE A MEAL AT  SOME FOOD PANTRY-- WHILE  TO THE WEALTHY IT WOULD MEAN A CHANGE IN THE NUMBER ON A PIECE OF PAPER...  I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT.... MORE... SPCIFICALLY.. THANKS TO RICHARD'S $25K--- CHANGING HIS WILL AT LEAST ONE MORE PERSON WILL BE  MORE INDEPENDENT WITH ONE OF OUR DOGS... A TINY BIT OF INK DID SUCH A GREAT THING...
MAKES ME WONDER HOW TO ENCOURAGE  ONE OR TWO OF TEH  VERY  WEALTHY TO SPONSOR A DOG A YEAR BY PUTTING PEN TO PAPER-- LITTLE BIT OF INK CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE...
HOWEVER IN THE MEANTIME... ALL US AVERAGE SOULS ARE DOING PRETTY WELL WITH OUR CHICKEN BRICKS-- MAYBE WE EVEN MIGHT BE SHOWING THE WAY....
***
OTHER PROJETS
 DNA SAMPLING--
I AM AGAST AT THE  RECORDS WE ACTUALLY HAV E ON DOGS...  THE EMBARK OUTFIT IN BOSTON  WANTED A SAMPLE OF WHAT  RECORDS WE HAVE .. SO I SENT IN NEDS  BIRTH TO GRADUATION  RECORDS.....WE... NOT ME... HAVE DONE A HUGE JOB KEEPING DETAINS OF WHO WEIGHTED WHAT WHEN'.  JUST AFTER BIRTH , NEARLY DAILY WEIGHTS.. THEN AS WE WORMED THEM DONNA NOTED THE WEIGHTS ON THEIR MEDICAL RECORD... WELL DONE !! AND MEGAN/STEVE/OLIV HAVE REAMS OF TRAINING  PAPERWORK NOTING " HE'S DOING BETTER ON STAIRS"   ALL BECAUSE OF ADI..  SO IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL TO HAVE IT BE OF SOME USE TO SOMEONE..
****
AUDIT-
WHY I DIDN'T START WITH  CONTACTING THE LOCAL CHARITIES  AAND SEE WHO TEY USED AS ACCOUNTANT - ISA WONDR.. AT ANY RATE WE HAVEA BRAVE SOUL WHO WILL POSSIBLY HANDLE  THE  ENTIRE GOVT- PAPERWORK CRAP...
**
 VIDEO  I HAVE GONE AS FAR AS I CAN UNTIL I TALK TO ERIC-- WHO WAS OUT ON LOCATION YESTERDAY....
**
SO I HAVE THE DAY OFF??? MAYBE I WILL TAKE  THE DAY TO FIGURE OUT JUST WHERE MY 3 "DOWNLOAD" FOLDER ARE   --- YES-- THREE !!

Carlene,
As you know and mentioned in an earlier DD, CP Jackie from Indiana lost her husband Tom last week. She and Tom have been regular visitors to the farm whereupon she always made a big batch of Indiana chili for the house and Sunday Stew. 

The email address that was included for her was incorrect (I left out one letter!) 
Here is her CORRECTED email and mailing address in case her SDP family want to send words of support.


Jackie May
93 Capitol Drive
Avon, IN  46123

Merry Christmas.


Debbie
