to mask or not to mask., that is th question. i hate to bring up a nasty topic, like mathematics, but the size of the sample has to be taken into consideration.. i "have an uncle Louis who thinks it is ridicoulous for him to wear a mask" ---- he is totally right when he is sitting on his horse on the prarie..... but the law was passed by the folk who live in kansas city... where the density of populatioin is a bit more than where the next horse and rider are 3 miles away.... my decision is colored by #1... new york did not have to hire trucks with freezers just to store ice cream... and #2 in any group on tv teh people withhe advanced degrees... like "MD" wear masks. do i have to know more than those two?
so i have decreed at crazy acres... being inside buildings is very limited and only oin personal invatation... outside... masks will be worn if 6 feet distanceis not maintained.. teh one exception is the rest room in the laundry building.... when you gotta go ,, go there. but reqlize it is not what you would usually call private, certainly we welcome our volunteers to enjoy the outdoors here... we havenever had such beautiful gardens thans to janet and grace.... and a few other weed pullers. it is appalling what BRAINS, PHYSICAL ENERGY AND AN UNLIMITED SUPPKY OF DONKLEY POO CAN CREAT E.
speaking of delightful exercises.... a guy... david... was in the driveway yesterday,,10 feet away and still masked... and we got going... started on teh statistics of masks AND HOW EASY IT IS TO BELIEVE EVERY ANGLE IF YOU TOTALLY IGNORE THE OPPOSING VIEW.. WHICH GOT TOO POLITICAL FOR COMFORT AND QUICKLY EVOLED TO THE CURRENT TEAM OF BROTHERS VERY LIKE THE SMOTHERS BROTHERS WITH THEIR "MOM LIKED YOU BETTER" -- THEY HAVE A WONDERFUL COMIC RELATIONSHIP " YOU ONLY WORK ONE HOUR A DAY" " I AM HERE BECAUSE MOM SAID I HAD TO BE" .. NONE OTHER THAN THE CUOMO BROTHERS.. WHEN HE GOV. IS ON THE CHRIS CUOMO SHOW THERE IS ALWAYS SOME VERYI8 NTTERESTING SIDE COMMENTS.. AND I DO THINK THE GOV OF NY IS OPERATING ON STATISTICS APPLICABLE TO ANYOINE NOT ON HA HORSE IN THE PRAIRIE.
6am phone call and i thought "OH NO, THE POLICE" BUT IT WAS A CAMERA PERSON WHO WAS CALLING BECAUSE THE MOMMY DONK WAS "CAST" ...
FYI FOR INFORMATION I AM SURE YOU ALL NEED TO KNOW TECHNICALLY BEING "CAST" THEY USUALLY ROLL OVER WITH NOT ENOUGH ROOM AND THEIR LEGS ARE UP AGAINST THE WALL ... AT WHICH POINT THEY PUSH THEIR HEADSW BACK FROM THE WALL AND ARE WEDGED... MANY TIME WITH A BIG HORSE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ROLL THEM BACK WITH THIER HEAD BACK LIKE THAT BUT YOU NEED TO GET A ROPE AROUND A LEG AND ROLL THEM BACK ... THE ENTIRE HORSE WEIGHS 1000 POUNDS AND LET ME TELL YOU THOSE LEGS FLINGING AROUND WEIGH MUCH MORE THAN ANY HUMAN -- AND IT IS A HORSE... I,E, UNREASONABLE.. WITH A DONKEY THEY ARE MORE REASONABLE TO DEAL WITH. BUT THE GEOMETRY IS STILL THE SAME...
AT ANY RATE SHE GOT HER HEAD AGAINST THE WALL AND PUSHED ENOUGH TO GET HERSELF UP JUST AS COLBY GOT THERE.
NOW PERSONALLY.... ABOUT BEING UP AGAINST THE WALL.... MENTALLY... ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS I HAVE TO DO FOR SDP. IS TO JUST NOT SAY A WORD. LAST NIGHT AT MAIL CALL, I GOT A LETTER CRITICIZING A DECISION I MADE --- SINGLE SPACED ---FULL PAGE OF SPECIFIC DETAILS WHICH THE WRITER THOUGHT I HAD BEEN INCORRECT. I CAN SEE WHY THIS PERSON THOUGHT THAT WAY...... THE PROBLEM IS THE WRITER DID NOT KNOW ALLTHE DETAILS.. AND THERE IS NO WAY I CAN RESPOND.
LONG AGO AT THE START OF ALL THESE CAMERAS I WOYLD HAVE RESPONDED AND VERY WILLINGLIY ARGUED IT OUT...AND I GOT CRITIZED FOR AIRING "DIRTY LINEN " IN PUBLIC .. I CAN SEE THAT POINT... A REALLY GOOD ARGUEMENT IS HAD FACE GTO FACE NO HOLDS BARRED..... SO FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS ON SO MANY TOPICS I HAVE BITTEN MY TONGUE AND LET THINGS ROLL OFF MY BACK... AND I STILL THINK THERE IS NO WAY I SHOULD DISCLOSE MANY OF THE REASONS FOR ANY DECISION... FRANKLY , I DO NOT HAve timeto explain everything. and now that we have grown to a size where an accountant is a permanent fixture i know... i can not argue with his decisions... he went to school and learned stuff i don't want to know... so whatever he says... we do... now that same thing applies to fighting with archetecs and the zoning bioard, town manager , state of mass, or the irs..
there are rules many of which i would like to debate... but i have learned... some arguemets are a waste of time.... unless you have too much time on your hands in which case a good arguement is a delightful exercise. ANGELS ON THE HEAD OF A PIN... GOTTA LOVE IT !!
