OwyheeStar Week Thirty-three 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
Last evening the sky was amazing and the sunset phenomenal. Nevertheless, the conditions that made for this panoramically impressive view were the fires. We are not sure what made this cloud-looking pillar. Looking east from OwyheeStar it looked as if smoke was rising to form the plume. Clearly, the valley is rimmed in smoke; however, we do not have it as bad as many other outlying areas.
The hay field is ripe for cutting again. We expect the hay guy’s crew to arrive anytime. We are so blessed to have such great friends and neighbors!
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts if you wish you review or visit them today! We began with Kirby’s adorable begging face looking on at the dining table and finished the week with life with Jack. Jack is the newest family member (a baby boy); the two resident Weims adore him so much. Isn’t that grand? The two T’s will have another chapter this coming week as Ron keeps updating us from North Dakota. We are absolutely thrilled that things are going so well for him. There was a little adventure on the water with Benson as well as a graduation for Buck. (Hurrah!)

On a very personal note
We celebrated my 66th birthday on the tenth–not to be overshadowed by our 47th Wedding Anniversary (August 9th). We welcomed both. Some of the family took me (Shela) out to dinner. What more do I need? Oh, maybe to see our grandson-in-law eat a giant Fajita Burrito. Christina took home half of her meal. There is a comparison for you.
On the home front, we have been working on the puppy yard fencing. Initially (in May) we put up the panels we had and developed a couple of very workable pens. Then we got along using tarps for shade, and whatever we had. The wood fence on the west and north will provide late afternoon and evening shade as well as privacy. Ultimately, it has to be very secure. Those two legs of fencing are almost completed. Then there are a couple of dividers as well as the west side to finish. We are still figuring out a few things (such as the height and type of fencing we will use). It is amazing how much everything costs. (Whew!) Cliff wanted me to wait to take a photo. This fence is only tacked in place and needs a couple of finishing touches and a little adjustment. Regardless, what a grand outcome, especially given the fence must hit the ground for security, and we are on a sloping and uneven area.
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. We can fill in a bit when necessary; however, we like to keep the integrity of your writing real. A couple of sentences can go a long way–sometimes it is enough. Those that have sent us updates know we are more than likely to post it word-for-word.
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!
