OwyheeStar Christmas Week 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
Typically, we don’t have many visitors. Nonetheless, this week was anything but the norm. We had more than a thousand Canadian Geese take up residence in the east hay field. For about three days they settled in getting more and more comfortable. They would come each morning a few at a time and by the afternoon the entire field was being utilized. Behind the multiple flocks of Canadians along the sanctuary we spotted a herd of deer–8 in all. We know there are deer but we have never seen that many at once. We were having fun watching them. Thursday morning, the geese were unsettled when a band of sheep and the sheepherders arrived. We hope the geese will return after the sheep depart. Who can guess? There will be less warm bedding and no hay on which to nibble.
The White Christmas seems to be a reality. Cliff measured the condensed snow this morning and it came up more than 2 foot deep. There is a frozen barrier beneath the new snow.

On a very personal note
Cliff has been busy. The hot water had an issue. I am glad he could fix it and that we didn’t need a new water heater. Suzie stacker is down again. We work her too hard. (OMG–I hope I don’t have to live without her.)
I am still coughing and I just cannot shake the Bronchitis. (OMG) It makes getting rest very difficult. There is too much to be done today to worry about these smaller issues. We are going to our son’s home for our Christmas Eve gathering. I am not sure what the future brings. As long as we are together, all is good. We send you wishes for the best of Christmas scenarios. May you have enough and know what is most valuable.
Thanks to You
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. We are in need of a few stories to get through the December blogging. Several of you have promised; however, we understand how busy you might be–nevertheless if you can send along something we would greatly appreciate it.
