OwyheeStar Week Thirty-two 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
We look forward to hearing from Jan this weekend. She is in Tigard as you might remember. Our blog featured her on Monday–Juniper’s Debut.
If you check out the link, you can find out more information about the UKC Opportunities as well as this particular Dog Show. Our neighbor’s (the Kamishige’s) brought us some of their fresh picked corn this evening. (Yum) In the past, Bob Kido used to bring us Asparagus. Who doesn’t love that kind of neighborly blessing?
I need to stop at the local farm stand and pick up some produce. I know these folks are very careful about the food they raise. I sometimes buy their eggs too!

Product Review (We Love These!)
Chewy.com provides us with a product to review for them every month. I have a great item I need to work up. I recommend this company. I send a crate to a person in the Midwest, and they were shocked how quickly it arrived. The prices are good, and the service is outstanding!
On a very personal note
Our household projects have been on hold due to the farm as well as some outdoor projects that came up due to the move to the farmhouse. Cliff has dug more post holes than we care to think about. He has been setting fence posts. Our new puppy fencing materials came–a bunk of lumber etc. Fortunately, we had panels that we were able to install for the temporary puppy-yards. Nevertheless, we need a bit more fenced area as well as something safer than regular chain link. The problem with the holes in the traditional link fencing is that a smaller puppy can force their head through the fencing. It is possible for one to get stuck–the head goes through easier than it comes back. This sticking of the head through the fence thing could lead to a tragic incident. We are putting up a wood fence down the west side, and we will adjust the wire fencing to make it safer as well as more usable.
I need to paint on the end of the house where Cliff replaced some siding; however, it has been too hot for me to paint. Mostly I felt like we were in survival mode on a personal level. All we had to give has gone to the puppies and the clients. Our food supply was down to something unacceptable. I picked up a few things on Thursday. We had planned to stop at Costco for a few basic grocery items, but the timing didn’t work out. I think sometimes just getting people food is hard. Well, our neighbors brought us corn. I guess we are good to go.
Thanks to You
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!
