Beautiful work Val, Now i know who to call on when i start mine
Noted & signed & "Great job Val!"
Thanks everyone- still a lot to do but like the privacy - and unfortunately Patricia - you wold have to pay me a lot! and no 100 degree weather. I just do what I have to do - with no money to hire anyone and my 2 male friends back downed - it was me but I have gotten used to that - my husband is a great consultant though and did help hold up the fence but is quite disabled. Now onto the news.
Unsure who can sign - doesn't say:

All signed and noted.. I know what you mean Val about doing it all by yourself. I fenced in my whole back yard for the dogs. I think it took me 3 days of post hole digging, and hammering up the cedar boards, but it was well worth it. Then I lined the inside of the fence with livestock fencing to keep them from trying to dig out, or something else from getting in. That was in the early 90's, and there is no way that I could manage that feat now. At least now you can take you time with the finishing touches.
All signed&,noted thanks Val, Iam sure you would be more then worth the money, but as you said Kathleen there is a wonderful feeling of accomplishment&pride when you finish a project I will be in the next week starting a new chicken coop, wish me luck
Thank you Val , noted and signed !
Signed & noted - thank Val!
Good luck Patricia
kathleen - that would've been a project - don't plan on letting the dog roam over there - more for privacy and emergencies since husband can't walk dog and to keep deer and rabbits out of the garden - have to put 2 boards under the gaps - hope to do the chicken coop next year - but we'll see - my energy levels aren't what they used to be and this heat is horrible. All have a great day and thanks for signing....

Two police dogs, one of them a puppy, died when their handler left them locked in his car on one of the hottest days of the year. Craven must feel the full force of the law, particularly as he had already murdered a police spaniel in 2004 by negligently leaving it in a hot car.

Thanks everyone - I have a moral dilemma - I post these petitions and news in 2 groups - this being one and Cruelty to Animals being the other. I have tried to contact Monique but no answer - nor from Dianne when I said I would consider co-hosting. However, my time between the animals, the world, my summer projects are getting overwhelming. There is fantastic information here and am not asking you to leave this group - I will continue posting here if that is what the members want - however I am proposing that you join the Cruelty group as well and then I'll post in one place - we have a hangman game there too - I will wait for awhile until I hear back from you - I am willing to do it either way - whatever works best for all of you - thanks. Here's the link if interested.
And here are today's petitions:

P.S. There's is one thing you should know - in the Cruelty group - we request that you post all your petitions/news under ONE thread with your name - not individually - I need to respect the members wishes - they say they sign more that way - so again - whatever works - fine - we can continue doing it this way if better for you.
You are all great! And some of you are already in both groups. thanks again!
All noted and signed.. Val you are the host of this group, and I think the final decision would be up to you. I for one, can't get involved in another group, like you my time is so limited now, I hardly can get anything done. I also don't want my mail box flooded with games either. So I will leave it like that.
im already in both groups so im good either way, i can also start posting the petitions isend to you myself so that will be one less thing for you to worry about.
just want you to know you are appreciated
Thank you Val signed¬ed, What ever works best for you is fine for me, this is a busy time of year for all,i myself having a hard time keeping up, appreciate all you do, make it easy on yourself
Kathleen - it's just a hangman game I do in the group but no worries - I'll keep posting here - I am not the host or cohost of this group - Dianne Lynn and Monique are. Don't want you to lose out on petitions or get more overloaded.
Victoria - would help me if you post in the other group - would be one less person - thanks. That's what takes a lot of time actually.
Thanks Patricia - 'll keep doing what I am doing so more people get the petitions.
Appreciate all the feedback but figured I would just keep doing it this way.
You guys are great!
