This Week at OwyheeStar
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
We are enjoying the comfortable (garden-extending) autumn. It is very pleasant, but we are not fooled. Winter is around the corner. There are all the signs of impending colder weather–snow in the mountains, leaves falling to the ground, and football on every level is in full swing. Fall and football mania appear to be joined at the hip. That being said, we also find the OwyheeStar Weimaraner wearing team attire. Here is Remi sporting his Seahawk (Lynch) extreme fan togs. Yes, he is a Longhair Weimaraner. Isn’t he adorable?
We recently had a very small litter of pups born. More than half the litter were Longhairs; there were two smooth coats. Nevertheless, all of them (Longhairs included) are reserved. The Longhair, sometimes called the other Weimaraner, are gaining popularity. We have had a few recent updates that featured the Longhair. For example, this week there was the blog titled Maddie Turns One.
The Longhair folks like to share their delight. Another blog is in the works featuring a two Weimaraner family who love their decision to add the Longhair. Arleen, (of Arliss and Arleen) once made the point that there are more Blue Weimaraner updates. Percentage wise, this is also true of the Longhair fanciers. Despite this trend–there are those who dislike the feathering as well as the extra fluff. We laugh at the frantic for fluff fans and their antics. An OwyheeStar Frantic for Fluff Page should add to the fun! The Weimaraner tends to delight and entertain; however, there are those times when they drive you crazy. We think you can agree with that statement.

On a very personal note
The focus is on the packing and sorting of forty-five plus years of accumulation. Cliff and I came into this marriage with hardly anything but the basics. The amount of stuff we have accumulated is overwhelming. Deciding what we must keep is a daunting task. Nevertheless, once something is tossed it is gone. The balancing act involves deciding what is a treasured memory and what is saved junk. Possessions are useful; however, at the same time they are a burden. Therefore, we are going to eliminate everything that is not necessary or deeply sentimental. Regardless, of the donations and junking we are still left with more stuff than I would prefer. (Lol) This coming week a lot of things (furniture and boxed items) are moving to the farmhouse. We have already started filling our closets and setting boxes in the guest bedroom. There are advantages to having not moved in 45 years, and there are disadvantages.
(Note–this is the same as last week, but a special thanks to all you who read it and came through 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.
