2017 4th Saturday Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
Snow and cold are a thing–or a theme in and around the Ontario area. Statistics reported that we had accumulated 2′ of snow and then received another 18″ on top of that. It has compacted and melted. Buildings are still suffering damage. The cleanup and snow removal is a daily activity. There is no way a person with land could remove all the snow. Our shop lean-to appears to have some structural damage.We may have to make an insurance claim. Insurance claims are in the millions. The fairground alone had a one-half million loss we heard.
A lot of people are stressed and more than a little tired of the snow. In light of that–I think we need a cute face don’t you agree? Wow–I feel better already. I love the snow, but too much of good thing can be something unexpected–not appreciated.
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts if you wish you may review or visit them today! A lot of folks were saying this week was grim. We felt like we might have added to the grayness, but loss and grieving is a part of being loved by the Weimaraner.

On a very personal note
I’ve been struggling healthwise for way too long. I have to spend some of every day working on trying to get better. What a bummer to have to write that, but I pledged, to be honest on this blog. It started with a little cold a few weeks before Thanksgiving–maybe longer. I have lost track of the actual start, but by Thanksgiving, I was trying to beat Bronchitis. After then, I got a round of antibiotics. I was still coughing so hard and have breathing issues. (Can I say it is not fun for me, and even less so for Cliff?) It was more of the same through Christmas. I just couldn’t shake the gut-wrenching cough. Then I made another trip to get antibiotics. It made a difference, but I still cough. Sadly, this is worse during the night, and I find myself struggling to get even a few hours of sleep.
A trip to the emergency room on Monday evening was not life and death. It was; however because I just felt I couldn’t get enough air. I got a breathing treatment and some other medication. I am making adjustments to my diet and trying to get rest when it is possible. Most of you realize there is a lot to be done here and poor Cliff has to take up some of what I typically handle. He has his hands full. Nonetheless, he did manage to sneak away to a couple of our grandson’s basketball games. He is a big 8th grader–size 17 shoes to support his tall, substantial build. We are so proud if him–#44. I won’t post his photo here because I didn’t ask him. Just imagine the tallest good looking kid on the team. No, I am not biased. I am a grandparent.
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.
