cafe le donk was a huge success yesteerday-- along with fugan's carrot slicer.... 4 adults spent abotu 1/2 hour slicing carrots and laughing away at the antics of trying to be sure each donk got some.-- i have seen 10 year old kids have teh same fun -- so i am glad teh donks are able to remove any age discrimination.
they were laughing at that as i ran around all excited about the catching of flys-- that one behind the dumpster-- that you can sometimes see as the camera rotates,, is going great guns-- at least 2 inches of dead flys --- even has maggotts in it-- woowoowoooo
and 3 people long past teenage years, giggling as they rode around in the "shaded wagon beds"
talk about enabling adults to enjoying subtleties of childlike behavior-- we are good at that...-
i remember-- (here we go again) SDP was invited to attend a very formal party aboard teh ? intrepid? teh aircraft carrier in the hudson river - to benefit The Tower of Hope-- which is a ny charity - and we went..
"WE" being 2 perfectly behaved adult dogs and 6 pretty little puppies-- we defined a circle for teh pups- probably with that 12" high shelving material-- but it was not long before the crowd-- mostly women in long black dresses and gold dripping everywhere, were on their hands and knees playing with the pups-- mostly women-- but not all.... there were a few black ties in there too. while we just crawled around carrying a roll of toilet paper keeping the place spotless.-- the whole thing was just so out of the box- that the crowd enjoyed it as they actually said "like nothing they had ever done in " the city" -- calling for poo patrol when necessary...
these were people who ... i am sure.. had seen every broadway musical- and were overcome by the simplicity of happy puppies being tended to by folks with a roll of toilet paper..
something about "keep it simple stupid" !
it is interesting to watch teh collapse of inhibitions.. -- every group need someone to jump the barrier of " i would look foolish doing that"- i am happey to say my faMILY DOES HAVE A FEW SOULS LIKE THAT -- JANINE BEING THE OBVIOUS.. BUT THEN THERE IS DEBBIE LEHARDY ( A NIECE) WHO HAS PROPERLY RAISED THE TWIN BOYS LAST SEEN 2 YEARS AGO RUNNING AROUND MAIL CALL WITH AN ARM OR A LEG AS THEY TRIED TO PUT TOGETHER "DELORIS", OUR NEW MANNEQUIN...
IT SEEMS THERE IS A SECTION OF LIFE WHERE BEING POLITICALLY CORRECT IS A PAINFUL BURDEN-- TEH VERY YOUNG- AND (I AM FINDING OUT) THE VERY OLD CAN GET AQWAY WITH VRY PEQUILIAR BEHAVIOR... LIKE STANDING IN THE COSTCO PARKING LOT REQUESTING... VERY LOUDLY... THAT
" I NEED HELP GETTING THIS STUFF IN MY CAR..." I WOULD NEVER HAVE DONT THAT AT 45 OR 50...
NOR WOULD I EVER HAVE PUT ON ALL THAT 85 POUNDS OF FIREFIGHTEERS EQUIPMENT FOR A PHOTO- OP-- OR ALLOWED SOME OF MY PICTURES WE HAVE USED FOR OUR CALENDARS. I DON'TY THINK I WANT TO FIGURE OUT WHY TEH " ELDERLY" HAVE THIS FREEDOM... BUT I DO ENJOY THAT PART.
COULD BE MY HEARING IS SO BAD I JUST CAN'T HEAR WHAT PEOPLE SAY-- WHICH ONLY MEANS I SHOULD HAve ignored public opinion long ago????
HOW DANGEROUS IS THAT????
