2017 4th Saturday Recap

Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

shop-birdpen_0606Snow 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.

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.

  4. Thank you Kim. Puppy Photos I have and they can be a healing fix. The snow is overwhelming. On our way home we spotted a lot more damage. OMG I would not even begin to put a number on the sheds we saw between town and our place that we didn’t know about. We wait to see if the old shop collapses and how much damage is done to our shops lean-to. If it came down there is equipment and supplies stored there. We are farmers –it doesn’t look pretty per say, but that stuff is important. This is when you find out how good the insurance is and how much they ding everyone for the damage.
