IT IS POSSIBLE TO BLEED TO DEATH WITH 1000 PINPRICKS-- I THINK SOMEONE SAID THAT...THAT IS WHAT I NOW SEE AS OUR WORST PROBLEM-- WE ARE SKIPPING OVER SOME DETAILS FOR A BUNCH OF REASONS...
I WROTE THIS TO SPECIFICALLY SEND TO STAFF .. "YESTERDAY'S ACTIVITY" AS AN EXAMPLE
I SUGGESTED TRAINERS DO STAIRS---and write on a poo picker who where and how---
HERE'S WHERE I WAS THRILLED TO BE WRONG..
DEVLIN PUT ON HER POO PICKER SHE WAS DOING STAIRS AT CROSBY'S- I KNOW CROSBYS AND I DO NOT KNOW OF ANY STAIRS- I BEGAN TEH "SLOW BOIL" ---SO I MADE A SPECIAL TRIP THERE AND DROVE ALL AROUND TEH BUILDING-- NO STAIRS--- I ASKED TEH MANAGER IF THEY HAD STAIRS-- NO... -SO I CAME BACK AND GOT DEVLIN- AND LACEY - AND DROVE BACK TO HAVE HER SHOW ME THESE STAIRS... BY NOW I NEUROTICALLY SUSPECTED SHE MIGHT HAVE DECIDED " JUST PUT IT ON PAPER, TEH OLD BIDDY WILL NEVER KNOW" - .. THERE WAS A TINY SHORT FLIGHT OF STAIRS AT ANOTHER BUILDING IN THE SAME PARKING LOT- BEHIND SOME HEDGES- . SHE WALKED LACEY UP AND DOWN -
THAT PART OF THE CASE THANKFULLY CLOSED.
EXCEPT FOR 1 THING- THERE IS A WONDERFUL 3 STORY FLIGHT OF STAIRS IN THE GEORGETOWN TOWN HALL- WHICH I HAVE USED FOR YEARS-- INDOOR-- WIDE-- WOODEN-- 5 STEPS TURN AND 5 STEPS- right across the street form crosby's SHE DID NOT KNOW ABOUT IT- I SHOWED HER - AROUND BACK THERE IS A PLACE TO PARK FOR EASY ACCESS.-- I USED THOSE STEPS FOR OUR FIRST ADI ACCREDITATION WITH SHEILA obrein 10 years ago.
THE FACT THAT I DID NOT SHARE THAT INFO WITH DEVLIN IS MY FAULT- AND AN EXAMPLE OF THE 1000 PINPRICKS THAT ARE BLEEDING US. LIKE IT OR NOT, I Am a composite of INFORMATION AND many easy ways of training. sometimes i need to be more actively involved to be able to remember some of these ideas....
another yesterday-- we had 30 boyscouts- here and if we do 30 again we need to have leaders/parents be more involved.... -- 4 of teh boys got to teasing 2 of our dogs who took ti as fence fighting with children-- and i am afraid what the END result OF THAT might be...
as opposed to the controlled exposure which was so hugely successful with the special needs kids at the school-- we were a bigggggg help to those kids with a great example of taking things from teh idea classroom to actual-- a simple thing like showing how the dogs help people go up and down athe curb.... it was -per their teachers- amazing.
and so simple for us to do... us beng judy-- and mara too-- WHO set up these thngs.
