OwyheeStar Week Forty 2016

Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon!

     ~ Hello October 2016

14324542_10208703010987359_5709960139658077403_oThe celebration of October begins. Football season is in full swing too! That means Weimar fans have dug out the team attire. The computer snafu means I lost my folder with all the great team attired Weimaraners. We still have this one of LuLu saying, “What do you mean Romo is out again?” She is engaged in whatever the family does and clearly they are fans of America’s Football Team (as it is called). 

Hunting is in the air too! We already received some Idaho reports (such as Best Dog Ever) of successful hunts. Washington and Oregon seasons are opening soon too. I believe Cliff alerted me that next Saturday is the opening weekend for pheasant hunting. Not everyone wants to hear about the hunting of birds; however, the Weimaraner is a versatile hunting dog. Bird hunting done right is good for the bird population, and when the kill is used for food, it is a responsible hunting practice. Historically the fall hunting netted a lot of meat for the freezer. Over the years, we have enjoyed elk, venison, upland game birds, and waterfowl.

This Week on the Blog

Here are the week’s posts if you wish you may review or visit them today! Friday’s blog (Weim Talk) sparked some lively banter on Facebook and netted a couple of blog comments. Nevertheless, the heartrending loss of Sadie being reported on Thursday evoked compassion for her family and their loss. It was good to have the upbeat post directly the news of the very sad loss. Other posts celebrated our life with the Weimaraner and included some information on ‘nooking‘ as well as a special outing. Every week we get at least one note that talks about how much someone enjoys reading about other people’s Weims. Thank you again for making this possible!

On a very personal note

This week I mentioned many times that I have to get some touch up painting done. This project includes the trim around our entry. The week is running out, and I am trying to get there. I promised Cliff it would happen this morning. The big rush is the weather is not going to cooperate much longer. I see Cliff has set out the paint for me. What a guy!?!

The exterior needs attention. Nonetheless, there are many areas inside the farmhouse which still need our attention. The degree of work needed varies from needing a little finish work to being a gutted room. Our kitchen is functioning but the lower cabinets are shells (or maybe more aptly boxes), and we have put in some shelving to make them work for now. I am not sure when I will get the real counter top. The material is sitting at RTP Construction awaiting our go ahead. I try not to get my hopes up as I think it will be at least spring by the time we can work on it, but who can say?

Cliff is still working on the puppy yard fencing, adjustments to the shop power and water, and numerous other must do before winter projects. Yesterday, he got the wheel lines out of the field. This Saturday morning; however, Cliff is off to Men’s breakfast. He doesn’t get to do that all that often. They have it the first Saturday of each month. Stackhouse is not amused that he left without him, but he is not a licensed Therapy Dog. (Lol) Sometimes it is beyond explaining why he cannot go with Cliff.

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!

  2. I am glad you enjoy them. I always wonder what I can share, but come up with something. :O)
