maybeeeeeee.......i was too quick to say we have no mr moon in the usa to organize the manufacture of pequiliar items..
.i have a job for available CP's ----- in my years, i have had many associations with various chain link "companies.." the last 2-- one "A" was pretty local and i had bought from them many times... , had a huge aarena size building all set up with "gigs" so they could construct any size or shape quickly...-- the only reason i went to another was for the 6 kennels donkey hill side --- unexpectedly they tried to charge me what i considered too much... for delivery ----and i ended up unhappy, picking up the stuff in the horse trailer...- it was many thousands of $$ -to tack on delivery annoyed me. so the next time... i found anoteh company-- "B" and put out the details for quotes...."B" didn't make the stuff but i had to "wait" til they found out th e COST from teh "manufacturer" i was aware that the manufacturer could easily be company "A"- because of their huge set up to make the stuff.--so i asked "A" for a quote also- carefully reminding them we were a charity and would they please be kind.... in the back room i heard "she can tell those Amish kids to be kind" and instead of looking up all the cost of pipe and fence needed, this guy said he would get back to me when he heard the cost from "the supplier" -- but i had heard "amish kids"
i was on a trail.... i called "B" who did not have the cost yet-- they were waiting on the frieght cost.. so i asked faciechiously where did it came from,china? and "B" said penna. i ended up buying that bunch ( for the ICE house) from "B"
2018 is to be teh year of teh fencing--- it is in sad shape in many places... to buy 12.. 5' sections with a gate would imporve the poo picking operation emensely- while extending the exercise areas to make better use of the acres on " th e house side" -- both "A" and "B" seem to be getting thier chail link from amish and penna-- sounds like teh same place-- how many chain link mfgr coudl there be in penna?? with a little investigation i would like to cut out the middleman-- and buy direct--
so my charge to all of you-- is find out who " those amish kids" are that make chain link. penna is not all that big... ( and i know there are amish in ohio etc... but "B" said penna...
teh "A" people made some disparaging remark about all those amish kids forced to stand in a line hammering out chain link-- that started me..... i hate to think of all the strange things i forced my kids into doing- it never occured to me that working was a bad thing. i spend a great deal of my life in a vw bug... gwen sat in the way back counting magazines for me to deliver while janine sat in the front tearing up the old ones and throwing them on the floor. i would be arrested now for child endangerment...then as i graduated to magazine distributer, i had a little trailer behind teh vw to fill with cartons to deliver to drivers weekly... - and one lived right outside teh gate to cANNOBIE AMUSEMENT PARK---SO I HAD 20 CARTONS OF MAGAZINES IN TEH LITTLE TRAILER AND 6 OR 7 KIDS IN TEH VW- PACKED IN-- RULE WAS AS MANY AS COULD FIT AND NOT COMPLAIN- ANOTEHR RULE- WE WOULD STOP AT MCDONALDS- AND EVERYONE GOT ONLY 2 THINGS-- ONE FOR EACH HAND-- SO BEFORE WE GOT THERE YOU COULD HEAR " I WILL GIVE YOU A DRINK FROM MY SODA FOR A bite of your cheesburger" or..." a bite of my fishburger is worth more than 2 french fries."
the other thing i remember is one week one of the kids had a full leg cast on and i remember driving while that leg cast was somewhere near the ceiling of the vw.
i would be jailed now. but it was fun...oh and we sang songs-- very loudly -- like ..".where are we going ,i don't know, when will we get there, i ain't certain, all i know is i am on my way" from "paint your wagon"
from there we graduated to animal episodes where the basis for for employment was 99% the management of animal poo-- like all the mice we provided to do the 'mouse" commercials before anyone knew what a mouse was..
and paul revere's horse in the aquARIUM FOR THE AD FOR A PORTABLE PHONE THE SIZE OF A LARGE BRIEFCASE -- THAT WE COULD PLAY WITH AND CALL EUROPE !!--- IMAGINE THAT !! FECES WERE INVOLVED IN 99% OF ALL ANIMAL EPISODES...-- IN SOME CASES - TRAILER LOADS OF IT - BUT THAT IS ANOTHER STORY...
