a crew from GE is due here at 8am and we had some strange chores.... most notably teh bottom rail... we have aLOT OF NEW FENCING WHICH MEANS ALOT OF NEW PLACES FOR TEH "UNDERDIGGERS" TO PLY THEIR TRADE-- AS ALOT OF OUR SPLIT RAIL HAS "SLPIT" WE CAN USE THEM T O LINE THE BOTTOM AND WIRE THE NEW FENCE TO THEM -- IF WE RUN OUT OF THEM... THERE IS ALWAYS MY COLLECTION OF IRON PIPE-- WHICH FOR SOME REASON COMES IN 21 FOOT LEGNTHS..
PAINTING THE TOP OF THE ICU WITH TEH OOPS PAINT FROM HOME DEPOT MAYBE LATE MORNIGN TO GIVE IT A CHANCE TO DRY OUR A LITTLE-- iot will be light grey
THE REASON WE HAVE SO MANY COLORFUL BUILDINGS HERE IS THAT HOME DEPOT NO LONGER HAS A GOOD OOPS PILE BECAUSE THE Y FOUND PEOPLE MIXING PAINT... NOT LIKING IT.. THEN COMING BACK THE NEXT DAY AND GETTING IT OFF THE OOPS PILE.... however the manager knows us... we don't do that.. we just use any color... hence the purple barn...
WE/I/ NEED TO DESIGN A DONKEY FEEDING PLACE... WHIHC MUST HAVE TRACTOR ACCESS BECAUSE THOSE POINTY HOOVES MAKE MUD/TOPSOIL AND WE NEED TO CLEAR IT OUT YEARLY... WHAT WE HAVE NOW IS NOT SUSTAinable... it is also a $%^&*( to carry the hay up the hill.
so with the the ice cream all tested, the lobster and chicken rolls tested, shirts here, calendars coming.feed bags here and a bunch of monkey fists hung with paperclips on a screen door thing... we are ready. steve # i forget and jeri will be here early to DESIGN AND BUILD THE SPIRIT STIC K HOLDERS SO I WLL HAVE TO ORDER A BUNCH OF 2 X 4'S-- AND MORE SCREWS( I HAVE JUST ABOUT GIVEN UP NAILING FOR SCREWING.) CHANGI9NG ONE'S MIND AND DESIGN IS ALOT EASIER WITH SCREWING.
now with regard to the monkey fists-- there are many ?5? sizes- the difference in prices are because some have brass hooks,rings, snaps-- naked is cheaper- i will try and get a few really big ones done- but will have to do those "to order..." inside... i use a candlepin bowling ball ?5"diameter? but it takes more roppe than you think to make one-- and that 1/2" - niice cotton rope is expensive- how expensive??
now-----if da vinchi was correct and one's arm spread is equal to one's height, even the smaller racquet ball ones take 3.5 of my arms spread which would be 234 inches at $.0419 cents an inch-( have at it guys...) i have not made enough of the bowling ball ones to know-- the othe problem with the bowling balls is i have to make ti with 5 fingers of 1/2 inch to have it cover -- to use teh 3/4 inch-- which i do have over my head-- would be tooooo expensive-- and probably take 2 oe 3 people to handle the piles of rope.
PUPS ARE GETTING OLDER AND INTO THEIR CARDBOARD BOX RIPPING TRAINING.
SUCH A JOY
THEY ARE DOING REALLY WELL AT TEH SPOON FEEDING--- IF THEY DON'T KILL YOU OVER THE FIRST 2 CANS- THEY DO SETTLE DOWN AND SIT QUIETLY WHILE YOU GO AROUND. THE 10 OF THEM. IF THEY HAVE HAD DINNER--- TO TAKE THE EDGE OFF THEM ANYWAY, I FIND THAT ABOUT 1/2 HOUR LATER THE 10 CAN EAT 3 CANS-
THE OTHER FYI IS THE SHAPE OF TEH SPOON IS CRITICAL--- THE ARTISTIC ROUND ICE TEASPOONS DO NOT ALLOW TEH DOG FOOD TO SLIDE OFF INTO THEIR MOUTHS AS WELL AS THE NORMAL OVAL SPOONS-- THE ROUND ONES WERE VERY FRUYSTERATING FOR BOTH PUP AND PERSON...ME..
HOW OFTEN HAVE I LECTURED ABOTU CHECK THE HARNESS TO BE SURE IT IS NOT RUBBING OR TOO TIGHT ETC..... I WENT TO THE DERM YESTERDAY- AND USED A CHAIR AS A WALKER WITH SIZZLE FOR TH OSE LOOOOOONNNNGGGG CORRIDORS IN THE HOSPITAL-- AS I WALKED ALONG I NOTICED SIZZLE WAS NOT REALLY LIMPING... BUT HER STRIDE WAS NOT NORMAL- BY THE TIME I LANDED IN TEH DOCTOR'S OFFICE I WAS SURE SHE HAD HIP DISPLASIA OR BONE CANCER--- TURNS OUT HER HARNESS WAS WRAPPED AROUND HER LEG ON THE FAR SIDE... NO WONDER SHE WAS LOOKING AT ME WITH **** THOSE**** EYES.
