very disappointed in the f "lowered " flag instructions i have recieved... no two are alike-- which seems strange-- only common denominator seem.... not aT THE TOP FROM LOWERED 3 FEET TO 1/2 THE POLE.
AND NO ONE DEFINED WHETHER TOP OF BOTTOM OF TEH FLAG IS TEH MEASURING POINT... IS THERE NO OFFICIAL ???
two weeks to dog fest-- yikes....
and anotehr 400 donkey feedbags are due to arrive-- i hope people give them as christmas gifts.... i will be handing one out to everyone at dog fest.
they do hold laptop / charger and phone-- and are terriffic as long as you don't overload them with %^&*$%
no specific excitement today that i know of.... company coming at 10:30 and i must wash the 3 bowling balls that are in my bathtub.
here is teh second dd i forgot to mail yesterday 9/27/2018- really just another barking log....
GWEN WAS HERE OVERNIGHT - I WAS UP AT 4 WORKING-- ALL WAS QUIET ALL NIGHT PER BOTH OF US.
SHE CAME FOR A CUPPA COFFEE ABOUT 5 AM-- PLACE WAS QUIET-- SHE WANTED TO GET THE 6:30 TRAIN FROM BEVERLY- SO ...
WITH DOGS QUIET... WE WENT OUT THE DOOR 5:43 THE "UPPER" DOGS BARKED WONDERING IF IT WAS BREAKFAST ALREADY..
NOW FOR MANY YEARS I WOULD NEVER HAVE LET IT WORRY ME it was "normal " barking , BUT NOW, ALL I COULD THINK OF WAS TO GET IN THE CAR QUICKLY SO THEY WOULD STOP BARKING WHICH MIGHT ANNOY THE NEIGHBORS... . I RUSHED WITHOUT MY GOLF CART BECAUSE IT WAS QUICKER- AND TWISTED AN ANKLE ON A PEBBLE IN THE 1/2 DAWN LIGHT. CURSED AT TEH BARKING DOGS AND WE GOT IN MY CAR- IT WAS QUIET AGAIN.. I BACKED AROUND.. OPENING THE WINDOWS TO LISTEN- NOT A BARK-STARTED DOWN T HE DRIVEWAY AND A 6" LIMB WAS ACROSS THE DRIVEWAY..
GWEN GOT OUT TO DRAG IT-- DOGS BARKED- SHES STRUGGLED WAS NOT A LIMB BUT WHOLE TREE.. BARKING DOGS ALL OVER TEH PLACE AND NEIGHBORS . I DROVE OVER IT TO GET HER TO THE TRAIN... COME BACK AND DOGS ARE BARKING -- NOT REALIZING 2 OF THE STAff have already arrived and tried to move the tree by hand.which would have -- barking...
i got the tractor-- startting all the barn dogs-- and go try and move the tree
spent 20 min trying to lift and break-- til finally i could snap it- and move it out of the way..
by now all are looking for breakfast making a racket.... and it is not quite 7am.
I AM THRILLED TO HEAR 2 OF THE PARTRIDGE BUNCH ARE KEEPING A LOG
I WOULD SUGGEST THE ONE PERSON I GAVE MY $45 DECIBEL METER TO WRITE DOWN THE LEVEL OF BARKING-- AND ONE OTHER-- NOTING THE DAY OF THE WEEK MIGHT BE MORE HELPFUL IN FIGURING OUT WHAT AND WHY.
i have been awake since 2 and it has been quiet all night ---here we are 6:06 on friday and we have a generalized barking- i don't know why-- started in the barn---maybe someone in the neighborhood was going to the airport.... llike me yesterday...
6:08 fading out..seems an odd thing for me to have to keep track of. 2 minutes and quiet.
far more important that i pay attention to the health and safety of our dogs.
worst part of dog shifting late afternoon is we had a dog yesterday and had trouble trying to figure out if he had 1--2--3 or no supper.. was he fed in the barn before we brought him up to the kennel before or after the nutt house was fed and before or after he got shifted to the deagle house's dinner???
there is an owl? in puppy hill area at 6:19 to 6:21 ... OWL OR large flying object... WHAT BIRDS FLY AT NIGHT??? NOT TOO MANY...
I REMEMBER--- THE RUsSIAN BALLET-- WANTING SOMEONE TO TOSS A DOVE INTO THE SKY ( OR O MORE EXACTLY a whte pigeon to TEH CIELING OF THE THEATER) -- SO THERE I WAS-- WHITE PIGEON IN HAND-- TOSSING BRAVELY AT TEH FINALLE AND FIGURING " JUST HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN IT SHlt on before they op[en the doors tomorrow morning so teh bird can find it's way skyward-- and home.:"
those were the good old days....
