This Week at OwyheeStar
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
We are experiencing unseasonably warm weather. It was in the eighties again on Friday; it will most likely be that way again today. Cliff had to break down and water the lawn. It was looking parched. We don’t want to go into winter with the grass being super stressed.
The local farm market still has fresh corn on the cob. They say it should still be available until the end month. That is amazing. I picked up a few ears for us yesterday. I missed not having our garden this year. The garden next year may or may not happen. There is a lot yet to accomplish other than growing our produce.
Deer season is in full swing. Camps are set up, and beards are in the making–even on the smooth-shaven. Whether you agree with hunting or not, it is an American tradition. At one time, it was vitally necessary. Keeping game at a sustainable and manageable level is also important. We do not believe you should harvest what you will not eat. It hard not to think how the critters will fare this winter after the summer firestorm. We are positive that Fish and Game will monitor this situation very closely.
The biggest concern at OwyheeStar is the same as usual. People are hoping to know when we will get them a puppy. Here is a sweet puppy (or two) to warm your heart while you wait. It is merely impossible to guess. We always look on in wonder as the process takes on a life of its own. We can attempt a mating. We can guess what might be born. We can put names on the Waiting list. All of this activity needs to reveal itself in due time. It is hard. We pretty much write the same thing over and over. In the end, we know one thing–it will all work out as planned.
This Week on the Blog
The blog topics were once again varied. We started and ended the week with a lighthearted post–Housecleaning is for the Birds and Faces. You might not realize that Gibson and Zeus were actual litter-mates. They also traveled north together–thank you, Jeanne. Then we had the two Weim family who endorsed OwyheeStar. We cannot thank them enough. Finally, on Thursday, there was the open letter to explain our process and situation at OwyheeStar. If you have questions, read the Thursday blog.

On a very personal note
Cliff is fixing and remodeling as fast as it is humanly possible. We have put aside other activities as much as it is possible to stay on task. Eventually, it is going to be a much simpler lifestyle. That is perfect for us.
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. That being said, we are especially grateful for those who continually provide us with the material for the blog. Unfortunately, sometimes this is only photos and no script. It is tough to write the script for photos. Other times it is only a note and no pictures. If we can quickly find some photos, this is not a huge problem. If there is any way possible, it is most helpful to get both–at least three sentences along with the photos. Being stretched thin on every side means we are in desperate to keep enough material available to create the daily blog with minimal effort. Sometimes having to write the whole blog (with all the OwyheeStar Weim interruptions) can mean working it more than two hours–so as you see what you send is so important. Thank you for your love and support. Keep the puppy updates coming–we need the updates.
