JAN 4 2018
NOW THAT I HAVE A 14 POUND BOOT ON EITHER FOOT, I AM READY...CHARGING MY PHONE IS ANOTHER CHALLANGE TO MEET.  I DON'T LIKE TO GO OUT ON THE TRACTOR WITHOUT CELL PHONE..  BECAUSE I DO GO  UP AND DOWN HE STREET  TO THE NEIGHBORS TO KNOCK DOWNT HE STREET PLOWED  MOUND--- PROBLEM WITH THIS STORM-- SO I AM TOLD... IS THE TERRIBLY COLD OF THE WEEKEND-- IF THAT PUTS A CRUST ON THE SNOW.... WE WILL HAVE BOTH A DONKEY AND DOG PROBLEM AS THEY SINK THRU THE SNOW AND  THE CRUST  HITS THEM MID LEG AS THEY MOVE...  I USED TO LET MARY GO AND BREAK IT ALL DOWN VERY CAREFULLY... BUT  I DON'T THINK MO IS UP TO THE CHORE...  SHE JUST STANDS.  THIS IS WHERE  THE ARENA COMES INTO  USE....  THEY CAN RUN AROUND IN THERE.. THIS IS GOING TO BE A BIG KONG DAY !!!!!!  GOT TO KEEP THEM ENTERTAINED

NOTE FROM PAM...( WHO LIVES ON "THE OTHER CAPE" ) 
Furnace still broken, supposed to come today?! Can heaters and fireplace keeping the house warm and preparing for whatever comes. Most likely power outages if the wind is as strong as they say. 

As far as help there- I have no idea who will end up there today but all regular volunteers  (Linda G, Pat F, Judy, Cindy) have emailed out for the day at this point.  

YIKES  -- THAT IS 4 BIG  HELP TYPES.  I HOPE  SOME COME   WE ARE GOING TO NEED ALL KINDS OF HELP-- AND BRING JAMMIES AND STAY OVER IF NEEDED....-- WE DID JUS MOVE THE BIG COUCH TO THE "SUN" ROOM  SO THAT... WITH IT'S BARKER MATTRESS IS ANOTHR SLEEPING PLACE-- ALONG WITH THE 4 BEDS UPSTAIRS.

 I KNOW WE HAVE A 10 POUND BAG OF POTATOES--... SO WE WON'T STARVE WITH BAKED POTATOES...WITH SALAD DRESSING???
I AM TOLD THERE IS A PAJAMA PARTY IN THE GUEST HOUSE-- WITH 4 OR 5 OF THE GALS STAYING THERE...  SOUNDS GOOD TO ME...

MY QUESTION TO WORK ON TODAY-- IS... IF ONE NOW MAKES LASAGNA WITH UNCOOKED NOODLES BY INCREASING THE FLUIDS... WHY CAN'T SPAGETTI BE MADE  IN THE OVEN THAT WAY?
****
FOR LACK OF ANY  INSPIRATION FOR THE DAILY DOGGIE......I CAN REMEMBER... WELL... MAYBE I SHOULD NOT TELL THIS ONE... BUT  IT IS TRUE...I MANAGED TEH WANT AD MAGAZINE DISTRIBUTION NORTH  OF BOSTON.. AND HAD 16 DELIVERY PEOPLE WHO WENT OUT WEEKLY.. MY GROUP WAS DARN RELIABLE...EXCEPT  BLIZZARDS MEANT A COUPLE COULD NOT DELIVER.. AND THAT MEANT I HAD TO GO OUT.. I WAS DOING  "THE LOWELL" ROUTE-- SCHOOLS HAD BEEN CALLED OFF.. SO EVERY VARIETY STORE WAS FULL OF KIDS POURING OVER CANDY COUNTERS-- I DELIVERED THE NEW, CALCULATED WHAT THEY OWED AND STOOD BACK IN LINE WHILE I WAITED FOR THE GUY TO  FINISH WITH A BUNCH OF KIDS AND THE IR  PENNY CANDY TRANSACTION...  WHEN I GOT THO THE REGISTER, I SAID TO THE GUY "GEE YOU ARE AWFULLY NICE TO THESE KIDS"  AND.... HIS REPLY??   "WHY SHOULDNT I BE, MAYBE HALF OF THEM ARE MINE."

MY SECOND FAVORIT STORY  WAS ALSO LOWELL-- DOWN IN THE CENTER- THE KIND OF PLACE WHERE TEH FACTORY WORKERS STOPPED TO GET A NEWSPAPER AND CIGARETTES BEFORE GOIN G HOME FOR THE DAY.-- LONG LINE... THERE I STOOD  WAITING  TO GET PAID,- AN I NOTICED THE YOUNG MAN BEHIND THE REGISTER  WAS  DECIDEDLY MENTALLY CHALLANGED... AND THE REGISTERE DRAWER HUNG OPEN-- PEOPLE WERE REACHING IN THT DRAWER THEMSELVES- IT SEEMED WELL ORGANIZED , IF NOT A BIT UNUSUAL...  ALL OF A SUDDEN TEH GUY BEHIND ME RUSHED AT THE GUY JUST LEAVING.. GRABBED HIM BY THE THROAT , SLAMMED HIM TO THE GROUND WITH A FOOT ON HIS HEAD... AND SAID  "IN THIS STORE YOU TAKE THE RIGHT CHANGE" --I LOVED IT... NO FUSS.. NO BOTHER.. NO POLICE..AND THAT GUY WILL PROBABLY NOT DO THAT AGAIN.  I CERTAINLY COUNTED MY COINS VERY CAREFULLY !!

 NOW TO BLIZ

DAY 16 
BELLA SLEPT ANOTHER GREAT NIGHT. SHE WANTED THE NURSE TO WAKE HER AT 3 FOR MEDS BUT BELLA WAS SLEEPING SO GOOD THEY DIDN’T. SHE SLEPT UNTIL 7:30. I WISH IT WAS LATER SINCE SHE WENT TO BED LATE BUT SHE WAS AFRAID I WOULD LEAVE BEFORE SHE WOKE UP. HER PIN SITES ARE GETTING REALLY ITCHY. A COUPLE LOOK A LITTLE RED AND IRRITATED. HOPEFULLY THEY WILL LOOK BETTER AFTER A GOOD CLEANING AND ADDED BACITRACIN. SHE HAD SOME FUN RUNNING IN THE HALLS AND PLAYING SOCCER WITH OMA AND GABI TODAY. WE ARE STILL WAITING ON A TUTOR. IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SET UP BEFORE VACATION SO IT’S GETTING A LITTLE FRUSTRATING. HOPEFULLY THEY FIGURE SOMETHING OUT BEFORE WE ARE HOME. SHE IS ALL TUCKED IN AND READY FOR BED. SHE JUST GOT SOME CREAM PUT ON HER PINS SO SHE WILL STOP SCRATCHING THEM AND IRRITATING THEM. 
GABIS SURGERY WAS POSTPONED FOR A COUPLE WEEKS. BECAUSE IT ISN’T AN EMERGENCY INSURANCE WON’T APPROVE IT THAT FAST SO WE HAVE TO WAIT A COUPLE WEEKS WHICH COULD BE A GOOD THING WITH BELLA INPATIENT AND A BIG NOR-EASTER STORM COMING. BUT IT SHOULD BE IN A COUPLE WEEKS. 
OFF TO GO SNUGGLE MY GIRL. THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT. LOVE BELLA AND GEORGE
