i hate to sound uppitity```but can anyone explain why i should not have a wall phone in my bedroom+if a normal person wanted one ( for years) she wouol call gthe tel company and thery woud come install it.-------- not me... i cannot get one to stick on those 2 buttons on the
"plate" so for years now, the new phone sits around and i have the feeling if i can't figure it out, i should not have one.
i think maybe... just maybe.... i am getting over that and will call the phone company.
fun with phones-------
i want a wall phone by my bed.. because i go to bed so early when normal people are still up[ and about-- i also get alot of annoyance calls- what no one reqalizes is .. i now. paid teh $5 to have
'phone search' tell me who is calling, what their address is , who they work for. and for an extra $20 thy would tell me who they are sleepiong with....
i now keep track of phone numbers, time of calls and could have a field day putting ther phon numbers out to teh thousand people who read this.
there is a joyce in virginia who's phone has called over 10 times in the past week...-- so i called the number and asked to speaqk to joyce... and a very timid voice sasid she wouod be back on monday....hmmmmm. i can not tell who is calling in that one.. so i called anothehr... and got a doctors office in texas-- when i asked if they had called my number in error-- they hung up.. well. i had this before ... in north carolina and it turned out the nc caller was a person who was in some way mentally challanged. and left home alone- after i did alot of research... the woman in texas who answered teh doctors phone so she must have a job there.. and it would not take an awful lot of research to write and tell the doctor what his/her phone is being used for.
so i looked up my number''' and quite correctly found me and some of my family --- but there also were many people who were supposed to be living with me... names with which i was not familiar-- now i realize-- i have a terrible memory, but you would think.... well never mind that thought.....moving on..... during the peroiod of children graduating from college- when they and theri friend ha=d no place to live, that crazy acres guest house kept many grads out of the snow and rain.... and some i did recopgnize== most noteable== blaine adams who =was w super artist - pen and ink.. i always wonder whaqt happened to him;
it took me a day or two to remember they renumbered boxford rdto deal wiht 911 project...this is how i aquired so many unheard of people in my family tree...
so beware....yet another way we are attacked by computers....
i have to report on my equine shipping boots.... 12" long... they are keeping my lower legs from freezing. you might need a velcro Strap extender for your upper leg because a horse leg does not widen... but they are working!

Sorry that the calendars are "lost in mail space". I sent my phone bill, received notice that my payment was late and my service would be shut off and I may have to pay fo a whole new service. The next bill came as a double charge and then the original payment came back 2 months after it was mailed. I was returned as undeliverable as addressed ( even though it was a pre-printed return slip. The mail delivery leaves a LOT TO BE DESIRED!!!!!

So as I sat in front of the fire trying to keep both ankles in front of the blower that's attached to the fireplace --there has to be an easier solution and as I thought through my vast experience with ridiculous items -- I remembered shipping boots that you put on a horse putting him in a trailer if they're very expensive horse otherwise you throw him on the trailer these shipping boots are certainly the right size and hopefully shape the bottom part of a horses leg and they do flare out to cover the top of the hoof etc.. So as I sat there trying to thaw out my feet I think that there's an awful lot of blood that goes through narrow places like ankles so they're keeping that particular area warm might be helpful to keep your feet warm and working along on the shipping boots department there's a great variety of shipping boots on all horse catalogs and I began to worry about them going around my leg they certainly can go round at the ankle.. So instead of watering a 14 inch or a 16 inch boot which would go to just below my knee but might leave the back open with the Velcro strap I opted to go for the 12 inch which had come just above the ankle we'll see how that goes I might invest in te 16 inch after that certainly would cover your lower leg very nicely if it could go around I have a feeling just below the knee it's gonna get dicey I have visions of going to these adult daycare centers and having everybody in the circle wearing different colored shipping boots'cause they're all complaining about their ankles being cold to be reported on later I have already ordered them don't order me anymore
Now that I'm a newspaper person I'm really getting a kick out of that the second article is very well received so I put together the third one and set it in the first one was an introduction to us with Bentley as the as the photographed to attract people and the second one although the puppy picture which then finished off by saying we will continue the training next week with a iced tea spoon so that the third article had to accentuate the ice teaspoon because that's where we now are with the puppies and the way it's supposed to go and we've had zero success so far and keeping the schedule they're supposed to be fed their meal somewhere around 9:00 and three and then somebody is supposed to come along with the ice teaspoon and the box and a bottles of children stuff for 11 and And again at 4:00 which would be just before mail call and I am putting at the bottom of this next week article the fact that we should have these puppies perfectly trained bye March 15th I believe that makes it the ides of March.. and I finished the article with a wanna bet? so we could be in bed trouble there but what the heck get a little spice in the action
next thing which will be very exciting today ---------- Oh well it may be maybe exciting today lynn should be back here toting the computer that wouldn't let itself get turned on ===she had an appointment with a genius guy that's what it's called in New Hampshire yesterday at 11:20 that made me wonder how often they were booking they use geniuses and how long it was gonna take to get this best straightened out now if it's 1120 best case scenario would be every 20 minutes and remembering I think that the president of the United states is booked every 10 minutes... this 20 minute interval could be an indication the really aren't enough geniuses to go around and the actual geniuses are all in a room room on the West Coast trying to figure out how to screw it up so well that nobody will actually know what's happening anyway any case it means a lot to do she may be coming home with a new laptop for me so I could sit in front of the fireplace and not have to be in my room freezing -----I believe we got blankets on the dogs.
People are asking what happened to the kid who fell in the kitchen in the middle of the night he's fine. he came back to see whether I could add anything to what happened because he didn't remember---- he seemed like a nice guy and didn't get rattled so I have said that we would keep him on the schedule and probably book him in places where there are two people like coming up very shortly we will be having another litter of puppies which sometimes demands two people then if anything happens they scream and Get Me Out of bed so that would work out fine.. in that same vein I did get receive the cards for your wallet to say who you are what medical disasters you have already and who they should call next it's a very it's a size of a business card and it it really should be in everybody's wallet that was a perfect case of I didn't even know who he was had to rely on the police to find out I think I spent $9 on 25 of these cards...
and maybe pick up my new car????????
and you will se vanessa around today after we both go grocery shoppine--- she does not drive...
and jaqnine shifted "uber" to the donkey stall last night. so there are 2 wildly spotted ezuines for matt to deal with.

i thought it was going to be a perfect day when one of my emails said i could loose weight by putting butter in my coffee.. that is aboiut the only place i have not tried putting butter.
but i could not sit here and listen to "soon i will tell you". did anyone else listen to the whole thing????
Today we will start the gruel feeding of the puppies on a schedule that schedule will be at about 9:00 o'clock in the morning and three o'clock in the afternoon the gruel fun should start the gruel being ground up purina puppy puppy it's not puppy food puppy pro plan with a little bit of goat milk and let it sit to get swollen and then add water again to make it the consistency of elmers glue all which case they all eat it and after they finish that then ----I for a start ----we'll start in with the glass baby food jars of chicken and sweet potato to get them onto the two taps on the jar and the ice teaspoon.. I can't imagine that there are some of you who don't know about me and the iced tea spoon brigade.. in a nutshell after the pups have had their meal and the slow small rest I then bring out either canned dog food or the puppy food on the the children baby food that's what I'm trying to remember chicken and sweet potato mix of which we now have about two cases underneath the sofa and that's how I start feeding him that chicken sweet potato mix and getting them to pay attention to the sound of tapping my spoon on the jar which then becomes the can which then goes all over the place and why a iced tea spoon that's because the puppies need to learn two things------one is not to jump and grab at food whether it's in a spoon or your hand because there are occasions we are dogs puppies not even Great Dane puppies have managed to swallow the entire spoon and I watched on doctor Paul as they pulled one out of the stomach.. so there's a whole Routine of how to feed a dog by hand which starts with by spoon let me try and put it to words which is darn near impossible.
if you go to feed a dog a cookie and you've got it in between your thumb and first finger and you point it straight ahead at the dog the dog and its enthusiasm will open his mouth and move forward and grab the cookie and just because of all the angles involved sometimes gets your fingers in the grab so that next time you go to offer the dog the cookie the same way you instinctively move your hand backwards so the dog only gets the cookie well the way the dog sees that is that oh I've gotta grab faster and harder before she moves backwards and takes it away so you're perpetuating the problem you're trying to get rid of ---that could get to be a downhill spiral -----the proper way to offer the cookie is to hold the cookie perpendicular to your hand and to the dogs mouth so that when he comes into grab you only have to move your hand a little sideways to get out of the way the dog has no intention of eating your hand they just want the cookie so if you arrange it so that they have a Direct Line of attack which is going to get them only the cookie you're way ahead of the game and strangers it seems I think I can put that into stick figures for maybe next week news article it would be funny but it would be accurate also
As I glanced back through what I've dictated here there are some mazing errors that I mostly don't correct I did just change the girl to grul weather some words in my vocabulary which the Siri person has not heard before I'm sure There are some words in here I don't even remember what I was trying to say about falling out the sanctus Oh well as we go....

OK...I GIVE UP. I THINK THIS CP'S SOLUTION IS WORHT A TRY.
Cats at Work is a “green humane program that removes sterilized and vaccinated feral cats from life-threatening situations and relocates them to new territories where their presence will help control the rodent population.
I found Dakin Humane Society in Leverette, MA that has a Cats at Work program. Maybe they can offer you more guidancE--- Hope this helpS. Ruth Ann (RAinPA)”
WE hAVE HAd cats before----we have had feral cats before and teh only problem has been the fleas. which we are supposed to be protecteds from with advantix.. there is an 8 month cat flea collar.-- that would give us 8 months to befriend teh cats and get another collar on them.. i think it is worth a try-- teh hay loft has. warm ductwork -- so if we start them there... teh should manage...
i am working in that direcrtion... well... i am waiting for goldie to solve teh problem for me;.
my newpaper episode is moving along. we started with one forth a page.. and teh last one he ran a full page with the stuff i had planned for teh 1/4-- so now i have to redo to keep in line with their growth..... fun.... and warm.... in a trainer car.. or amywhere warm.
now....seriously-----experience comes from bad experience... long ago 150 years at least-- someone sold me the paperwork invoolving stafff and keeping of medical records for all staff and volunteers. we all filled in this details of dnr-- exhiswsing dconditions next of kin. etc and felt very organized.
howeverr i did not keep up the scheme---and last night- a new overnighter xxx ended up lying on the kitchen floor. - heathere came to get me. saying siexzure... which it could have been... it also coudl have been trip fall bang head also. 911- came- by then i had found his wallet. which had nothing to help figure out what happedenso off he went with the police and emt's of teh ambulance crew. i could hear xxx organization....telling me we should have complete medical records on everyonE on the property.. which wold be a lovely way to fill a FILE drawer. ---i told them i couold not see it's use... it was a bit of a nasty battle-- and here i was in the midst of it... if we had all his med record, i wo ldhave to leave him on the floor and go thru the alphabet and find his record-- seeing as i didn't konw his name anyway i opted to stay with him and call 911.
point being all that paperwork of medical history to keep in a file i couuld not tell which building the file was in.....about which i knew nothing -- eeven the words invoolved.... would be useless in a practical situation.... however--- this outfit tha sold me the funny cards was correct.. he should have had somethign on or very near his person.
so i will now go to the "overflow room" i think ths stuff is high in the shelving to the right of th e door.. along ibm computer and supply of discs for backing up... at the end of the white wire which is strung across the mall call area ... with dripping cobwebs...

"i am off to see the wizzard... the wonderful wizzard of OZ 2 "
Tuesday, January 18, 2022
if if I took all three computers down and said I think I have to re replace these I bet they'd pay attention I know when you go into the Toyota dealer and offer to buy three stores you get salesman tripping over each other to wait on you let's say if I can't work that at the apple storelike Haley drop me off there when they realize they're stuck with me until they fix it then maybe they'll do something about it like the ransom of red chief -- boy that's an old book I don't know is it even exists anymore I always liked the concept...
large problem around here. is is water and I've suggested we have a video conference whatever you call it zoom meeting with everybody on the topic of water new people you city people have no idea well the lack of water is like we have two sources of water here one is a well very deep very deep lot of water in it smells and tastes like rotten fish but it's healthy enough to drink the other source is Ipswich Town water which is excellent easily as good as the bottle of water you buy however if you lose electricity you lose the well and if you get enough ice around you lose the town water and the volunteers here really need to think about what it would be like have to try and improvise watering the dogs or horses because they're careless I have put in frostfree things that stick out of the house then it turns around it makes water what the hell faucets and all the buildings The funny thing it's about a foot long and it when you turn it off outside it basically drains down in or away or somehow it doesn't get frozen and it works fine as long as you don't attach a hose but once you attach a hose it doesn't work and the whole thing freezes and furthermore it could freeze in the wall which is what bud was worried about if it froze in the wall of the ICU building we'd fill up the walls of the building with water and we'd have one hell of a mess a simple thing take off take off the hose or just don't use the hose in the first place it sounds so simple so I went and tried to the Oh dear where to start the the faucet coming out of the ICU building that's hooked up to the tub of water which does most of the livestock except for the ones that are afraid to get on the icy pad but any rate it has a four prong distribution for four hoses to go four different places and we had awful time getting people to undo that which they finally did and Matt took that four prong thing off and just had the one hose attached which that was enough to make it go bad but that's a key out there is full of junk and nobody has emptied it broken glass all sorts of things in that sink it's disgraceful it's graceful... all of this has caused really by the fact that I can't get down there to check on everybody any tiny little details that makes such a big different I can see it piling up the the T10 is full of heaven knows what there's a bed on its side I don't know what that's all about it's possible to start a fire and sit on there if you sit at the table the tables are full of everything.. and the volunteers they're doing a hell of a job but they did more training they need they need more experience and xperience is what you get from having bad experiences and I think that's happening here...
OK I remember... the guy in New York State with the six black draft horses from which we bought 2 his draft horses were kept in the bar in the bottom of his barn on the dirt floor and they they stood in a straight stall he had all the windows covered with brown paper so that they stayed black that's another story but any rate he took them out three times a day and let him drink all the water they wanted out of a central watering truth that worked very nicely they were used to it and it worked ours aren't nobody at d trained that well but certainly if they have all the water they could drink three times a day they probably would survive at least his did... but to get them watered if you've gotten frozen pipes it just ain't gonna work all those faucets outside kennels one to 10 I had all rigged up with removable hoses so that be corrected correct drainage somebody removed all the hoses replaced it with something else that doesn't work and we're beginning to have frozen pipes there.. a split pipe spraying cold water all over some dog is the vision that I live with. we had frozen pipes under the kitchen sink luckily we noticed it quickly and got out the hair dryers with the appreciation of running water it's something that needs a lot of consideration on the part of every person on this property we lose water I can't do a damn thing about it and sometimes it involves understanding how these faucets work in order to keep them running I had everything everything organized this fall but by the time you changed plumbing and changed hoses and changed change things I don't know what's going on and it makes me very nervous among other things nerves or by downfall.
tomorrow is the second installment of life on crazy acres with the new litter of puppies I inadvertently santin apparently 660. word words and I didn't know I was only supposed to use 40 so I don't know what they're printing we find out when we get there at any rate 400 is what I'm supposed to be aiming for now that I know and somebody has just come up with a very good cartoon to end with so i don't know what they're printing . with a pup trying to get up on the bed and it's even harder zontal move up----oh boys harder zontal. 4 horizontal???? I'll let that go
getting back to 3 defunct computerws goign to the apple stor3e.... I just thought with my transfer chair wheelchairs sort of thing I can put at least two of these computers on that chair and manage very nicely and give them the computers or sit down in the chair I I'm beginning to think that's a good thing to do
Lynn where are you?
