One of my New Year’s resolutions (basically the same one I have every year) is to get a jump on my organizational skills. At my recent holiday break camp. I went out to the Camp Room to find some glue. Just simple white glue.
Now I know we have white Elmer’s glue—in fact we are simply drowning in glue. Two years ago, I bought like 20 bottles of glue at an out of town Wal-Mart while at a show—hey, think ahead and be prepared. It was something like buy two get one free.
So where is the *%$#)! Glue?
If you’ve read some of my earlier posts you know that we re-locateed almost two years ago now. I’ve talked to you some about the facility, but I might not have mentioned that there are three smaller outbuildings. These three buildings were stuffed full of hay, straw, trash bits and pieces of broken stuff. One building is a two story, with one room sitting directly on top of another. It is set up so the announcer/judge could sit up high and watch the show, one of my instructor’s best called the top room the “Crow’s Nest”.
The bottom room was simply used as a storage for old nasty hay, which in turn became homes for generations of mice. We got rid of the hay, and now I think I can confidently say most of the mice seem to have moved on to new homes. After eating several boxes of crayons last winter—has anyone ever heard of that? Totally weird, crayons, chewed down like little miniature corns on the cob—or would it be corn on the cobs?
But after last year’s camp—everything was just simply thrown in on the last day of camp—I can’t blame anyone we did have our Annual Open Summer Show the next day. End the camp, start washing the horses.
So the glue has to be in there.
I mean unless the mice carried if off?
So I had to go to Wal-Mart and buy 3 bottles of glue—at almost $2/bottle. Arrrrrgggghhhhh!
So I’m planning on cleaning out and organizing everything in the Camp Room. Everything is coming out. Like is going with like and I am also planning on making a thorough inventory—I mean you can barely open the door, something has to be in there.
And I’m gonna find that glue!
