There are some major changes afoot in our Lives.
We have placed our house for sale, and we are
stark raving crazy feeling pretty excited about the change.
We are shopping for a boat.. Not just a boat, A Big boat, a cruiser.
The Master of the Universe The ships Master has some definite requirements about engines, generators, silly man..
Whatâ€™s important is space for our critters, and a decent
kitchen Galley…See Iâ€™m learning.
Actually, we have both done a fair amount of sailing..
And we both have always wanted a GREAT ADVENTURE
So.. we have taken the first smalls steps…..
Bear with me in the coming weeks as I share the ups and downs of
Moving onto a boat..err ship.. whatever!
Hawkins has a new home coming soon, he is going to be a companion pony for some retired race horses..Heâ€™s so bossy he will be in pony heaven..
MissSnot and Tigger will be fine, BuddyTheDog will adapt.. Cause he is so mellow..
BlackJackTheBlackLab concerns us.
We may have to take Râ€™s offer of adoption for him..
We plan to take the dogs aboard one at a time, to see how they handle boating.
Our vet has told us some dogs get seasick.
So time and patience will tell

Boot camps for juveniles are going to be removed from the state of
Florida. The boot camps will be replaced with Sheriffs Training and Respect
Martin County Juvenile Offender Training Center, is the model
Being used. Focus is on self-esteem and after-care. Teaching and leading,
Rather than beating and intimidating.
Physical or psychological intimidation of the youths is strictly forbidden.
There is no place for physical or emotional sadists in this program.
The act doing away with the boot camps, at which at least six kids
have died in the past six years, is named after Martin Lee Anderson, a
14-year-old honor student who was beaten to death
by sadist guards who have gotten away scott free with murder by Bay County
Sheriff’s Boot Camp guards on Jan. 5, 2006. The same day he entered the boot camp from hell. And letâ€™s not forget the
angel of mercy, the nurse who stood by as Martin was dying, doing nothing.
No one has been charged in the case after 4 months.
The sheriff’s office maintains that the guards were trying to get Anderson to participate.
I still wonder if that was before or after he was unconscious from being choked.
He was placed there for taking his grandmother’s car on a joy
Kids entering the camps will now be told of their right to outside
counsel; given abuse hot line telephones numbers. They will also be given physical
exams upon entering and leaving..
