OwyheeStar Week Twenty-Six 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
The clover has been in bloom. Our neighbor has a two-year clover crop right across from our property. Our hay is looking equally good. The weather is conducive to crop growth; we are not speaking of water shortages so much. The last five years this has been a great concern. It appears that farmers have enough water for this year’s crop.
A not-so-recent-returned Weimaraner (Luke) found a new family. We were so happy that someone would consider him. He is a sweet boy. Our photo features the location of future garage. We would like to get concrete poured for parking but for the present, it is what it is–not so lovely. The happiness of Luke loading up to meet his family is what is important. The report thus far is he is adjusting well.
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts if you wish you review or visit them today! It was a mix of topics–Beginnings, Birthdays, Fun, Finds, left behind, and the concern over the upcoming holiday. The importance of getting your microchip registered cannot be overstated. It is so much less expensive than in the past; past programs charged an annual fee. The lifetime charge with AKC Reunite is reasonable, and their program is effective. There is no reason not to enroll. Just do it!
Monday — June 20 — Kaboom Talk (Register the Microchip)
Tuesday — June 21 — Summer Fun
Wednesday — June 22 — Close Your Eyes (Luna’s Gopher)
Thursday — June 23 — Zeke (Birthday happiness)
Product Review (new review coming soon!)
OwyheeStar blog. It is the only daily blog. There is a somewhat different blog located on our Primary Website–www.OwyheeStar.com. We are doing a once a month product review for www.Chewy.com. Our product for May found favor with Dusty–click here to read more about the Bayou Biscuits.
On a very personal note
We had to add an air conditioner to the dog porch. Scorching heat is on the way and opening the door to the house doesn’t cool that area enough, and it saps the cool from our kitchen. Dining and workstation areas. We had to adjust the puppy yards already too! They proved to need more space than we originally planned. So, it is done and done. We are going to buy some sod this morning and make a few repairs. With puppies, this is an ongoing situation. They are tough on the lawn. This area didn’t have the best grass anyhow.
Cliff has moved his air compressor to the front of the house in the hope of repairing the siding. We removed a window and the original door from that end of the house. It has been boarded up since then. He is going to replace it with the original siding even though there may be other changes in the future. From there the hope is to move to our new entrance and to get the door trimmed as well as a better walkway from the parking area. It won’t be fancy, but new and improved will be appreciated. Time to work on this has to fit around the farm work, the Weims, and the constant battle of the weeds. Why is it weeds thrive with no attention?
(Note–thank you to all of you who continue to send us updates. There is a lot to be learned from other Weimlovers; it puts a smile on our faces too!)
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. We are immensely grateful for those who continually provide us with the material for the blog. Unfortunately, sometimes this is only photos and no script. There is no end in sight of our farmhouse remodel. We are doing it ourselves, and it is the installment plan–we are not borrowing to do this. We buy something and install it. Therefore, having the updates is greatly appreciated than usual–it is always a blessing!
