FINANCIAL REPORT --- $200 ----OUT OF THE FUN FUND---- FOR AN EQUINE SPIRIT BALL 40"---THAT CRAZY NY LADY SAID HER DANES LOVeD ... SHE HAD PHOTOS... LOOKED LIKE HER DANES REklly got into trying to ride the thing... so i ordered one. -- SHE SAID TO BUY THE GOOD ONE... wasn't cheap... and we really didn/t need it... but it could be fun....- BESIDES IT WAS PURPLE AND YELLOW....
THE STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMEL'S BACK... IS A DOMINATING CONCEPT TODAY-- I USED TO ARGUE THIS CONCEPT CONSTAntly with my husband... regaRDING MEDICAL CONCEPTS ABOUT WHICH I KNEW NOTHING. THERE IS A TIPPING POINT AT WHICH YOU HAVE ONE TOO MANY TINY FLU BUGS, AND YOUR BODY SAYS "WHOA-- "- HE ALWAYS TOOK THE SLIGHTLY SICK PATH...
PERFECT EXAMPLE-- AT HOME DEPOT-- THEY HAVE CONATINERS OF CHAIN WITH A LITTLE PIECE HANGING OUT... YOU CAN PULL OUT A FEW MORE LINKS-- THEN ONE LINK TOO MANY AND ALL 200 FEET IS SPILLING ONTO THE FLOOR AS THE HANGING WEIGHT... ETC....
LIFTING THE PALLET OF WET DOG FOOD WITH THE TRACTOR... IF WE TAKE OFF 2 SMALL CARTONS , THE TRACTOR CAN LIFT. THE REMAINING PALLET (900-8 POUNDS..)
? AN 8 POUND "STRAW?"
MY DESK HAS GOT TO THAT POINT-- SINCI I HAVE NO MEMORY, I AM INCLINED TO LEAVE "CURRENT PROBLEMS" ON MY DESK TO REMIND ME-- IT HAS GOT TO THE POINT OF TOO MANY CURRENT PROBLEMS. "TOO MANY" BEING DEFINED AS NO PLACE TO PUT MY COFFEE CUP- BECAUSE WITOUT THE CAFEENE JOLT I'M NOT CAPABLE OF ATTACKING IT.
THE REASON WE DON'T HAVE ANY SOUND ON THE NURSERY CAMERA IS 8 CARTONS OF PEANUT BUTTER,,,
YESTERDAYS HEAT AND HUMIDITY WAS ONE DEGREE TOO HIGH...- "WAS HARD ON THE OLD FOLKS"-- IT SURE WAS.... EXPLORE SENT US A NEW CAMERA FOR TEH NURSERY-- AND TO GET IT HOOKED UP MEANT I HAD TO MOVE 8 CARTONS OF PEANUT BUTTER IN A ROOM NOT AIRCONDITIONED. I DID MANAGE TO GET IT SCREWED TO TEH WALL AND RE WIRED
..( SOUNDS IMPRESSIVE,, JOE ON HE PHONE " MOVE RED WIRE FROM #2 TO #4-" ) - BUT WHEN IT CAME TO HOOKING UP THE MICROPHONE I HAD JUST HAD IT-- AND JOE ( ON THE PHONE FROM EXPLORE) SAW THE WRITING ON THE WALL AN D SAID " LETS DO IT TOMORROW..."
TODAY... JUST MAYBE... IF I CAN FIND WHERE MEG PUT IT, WE WILL HAVE SOUND. IT TOO IS A CAMERA WE CAN MOVE AND ZOOM FROM NORTH CAROLINA OR WHEREVER THE CAM OP'S ARE...
SO ALTHO I DID MANAGE TO PUT IN A DAYS WORK, I WAS DRAGGING AT MAIL CALL, SEVERAL CAMERA PEOPLE NOTICED AND LECTURED ME ON TAKING IT EASY.. WELL ACTUALLY ONE SAID " WORK JUST AS HARD, BUT STAY OUT OF THE HEAT"
MEANWHILE ALL OUR STAFF/VOLUNTEER REGULARS ARE HANGING IN THERE WITH SWEAT POURING DOWN THEIR PURPLE SHIRTS.
AND I REMEMBERED......
ALL THOSE PEOPLE IN THE "ASSISTED LIVING " PLACES ARE WARM, DRY AND FED.. WHICH ARE HIGH O N MY LIST- BUT THERE IS NOTHI9NG TO DO... I KEEP REMINDING MYSELF ALL THOSE JAILED PEOPLE WOULD LOVE TO BE OUT SWEATING IN THIS AWFUL WEATHER.
WORK IS NOT AWFUL... LACK OF WORK IS..
CUT AND PASTE--- SLIM PICKINS
My group from GE has worked with SDP the past couple years in the fall. I was reaching out to see if you needed some odd-job help. Is there a running list of tasks that need to get tackled? I know sometimes it’s hard to tell far in advance, but I potentially can organize a larger group if you can pull together a cohesive workload.
I was looking at early October, if that works for you?
Thanks, I look forward to working with you again,
GE HAS A WONDERFUL LIFT AND HAUL BUNCH
