Lynn Cashman and I we're friends because of our interest in quarterhorses--- Lynn on a national level and me on a fourH level . but our interest in quarterhorses gave US the opportunity .To drive around many times in a car looking for Kentucky fried chicken lunches ..
lynn's husband is Wayne Cashman who is number 12 in the Stanley Cup champion team a Bobby Orr Esposito Kenny Hodge Gerry cheevers , and ace Bailey .
FOR a very long story linn an Wayne ended up living in our house in Lynnfield when they came back from Bermuda vacation because their house in Peabody had been burned to the ground . Needless to say it was a wild couple weeks of total exposure to Bruins people .. and it was a lot of fun regardless of the fact that the entire hockey team lives in a different 12 hour time frame the normal people ---- they're ready to go to dinner at 2:00 AM .
however during this time I got to know Kathy Bailey who is ace Bailey's wife .
ace was killed in the second plane hit the towers . and in the last five years or so Kathy and I have maintained a very casual friendship . she got to the point but she was going to move and sell her house which involved cleaning up closets and things and found that Wayne Gretzky shirt and gave it to us as a fundraiser for service dog project .. shortly after that she was at a Bruins function and mentioned it to Bobby Orr .. now Bobby Orr Knew me not only because of Lynn Cashman but becausw he was in on filming of several commercials for which I provided the animals. So he offered a book and posters to be added to the Wayne Gretzky shirt for our fundraiser .
just to be a nice guy ---- which he is big time . And Kathy Bailey shuffled them to me .
I still see Kathy on a semi regular basis she was here yesterday October 9th , just to sit with And help feed the puppies and enjoy them . she says she watchS our cameras constantly as a relief from all the other things that she doesn't want to watch .
THE SHIRT, The books and poster made $5000 in that dogfest shadding ..
It never ceases to amaze me how many people watch our puppy camera … NOT ONLY BRUINS BUT......
Our community also involves a judge who has the puppy camera on under THE bench for those times when nothing is happening legally .
Today's chore will be to build new feeders for the 15 puppies . the feeders I have now hold A 5 inch dogbowl all nice and neat in a straight line .. the problem now is the 15 puppies are more than 5 inches wide so the chore of the day is to build a feeder to accommodate 9 inch bowl feeder 16 of 'em .. probably because I only build things in eights and fours because that's the size of plywood .
