OwyheeStar Week Thirty-four 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
This bouquet of adorable blue goodness might put a smile on your face. These five Blue Males were born to Zula Blue (in a litter sired by Blue). It kind of makes sense with two Blues and all the color being thrown around that we would get this adorable group. No, they are not all promised yet. We (actually) got more than expected with the Summer and Fall Blues we had born. The opposite of keeping folks waiting too long — like happened earlier this year.
The political hoopla has created a mud-slinging half-truth arena of a special kind. Many people have requested I post additional photos. I will see what I can do. We have the OwyheeStar photo archives. The sad truth is they are a mess after the last computer snafu where the 46,000+ files ended up in the trash by mistake. Then they refused just to return to their rightful places. (Eke) I have a semblance of a fix–it will never be as organized as it was before the unwelcome event. Nonetheless, I can pull out a photo here and there and share it with you. I think we will all welcome the diversion.
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts if you wish you may review or visit them today! We began with Walter’s arrival and ended with Maizie picking huckleberries.

On a very personal note
The house next door is on the market, and the traffic is insane. We are happy to have the puppy fence up to provide a measure of privacy. The last thing we need are people tracking the Parvo virus onto the property and spreading it to the pups. (Eke)
It has been a fix it type of week. There is more of the same in sight. Cliff moved the wheel lines (because they are going to be coming to cut the hay) and the chain broke. The tractor put up a fuss yesterday. It required some work to keep it running right. The little Stacker (Suzie) the Washing Machine (that I use for puppy and dog bedding) threw a belt. Cliff needs to buy and install another soon. We cannot drain the water out of it. (Bummer) I am so thankful he can perform these repairs.
I took Cliff to the Dermatologist yesterday. He had a sizable growth on his face. We were sure it wasn’t serious, but his father fought skin cancer (as did his mother). There is also the risk of it getting caught and torn off working on the farm. While he was there, the doctor gave him a skin check. The overall news, as well as the visit, was positive. Two pre-cancerous growths on his nose got the zap; the growth on his face is gone. He also has a condition on his feet we are treating. All of this is minor, but catching it now was a great thing.
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!
