2017 — The 50th Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~December 8, 2017
It is 29-degrees. That is warmer than we expected. The prediction is for a high of 32. (OMG) The outdoor potty area is made so we can wash away the pooh and whatnot. Isn’t that a grand topic for this Saturday morning? Well, unless it gets warmer, and I hope it does–I will not be able to do the thing with the hose. It means chipping away and carting off rather than the washing. Ah, Winter has its challenges.
The farmers are tuning up their snowmobiles and thinking of escaping to the mountains. We live on a farm. I call it a hobby farm and some of you would wonder why. I am not sure how many acres it takes to make a living. It used to be around 300. It has to be a lot more than that, and we have what we call a short-forty. That means a few acres less. We won’t be escaping to the mountains anytime soon. The Weims would not appreciate our absence, and we don’t have anyone to cover for us.
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts. Special thanks to all of you have remembered us with great updates. Sunday opened the week with Charlie Mae’s annual wrapping of the Christmas lights. To her dismay, we enjoy this holiday event. She is a good girl and allows it to happen.
Friday and Wednesday’s blogs are connected. In case you didn’t know Lucy and Toby were adopted by the same extraordinary family. One interesting thing about this that might also be confusing. On Facebook (who has its own protocol) the one photo of Toby was selected represent Lucy. If you see the gray pup photo–it is not Lucy. She is the stunning Blue sister. Toby is wearing the scarf. Finally, we heard from Wellie’s family. It has been awhile since we had an update. He is quite the Companion on every level–netting birds in tough terrain. Special thanks to Tyler for the update. It is great to see Wellie is still at work and doing fantastic.

Monday — December 4 — Duke
Tuesday — December 5 — Wellie (Undaunted and Effective)

On a very personal note
We have scurried around this week because we have a litter exit today. We also were at Brad’s basketball games too! A Freshman wearing size 18 eighteen shoes and standing at least 6′ 2″. He is taller than the other listed teammates that are the same height. BTW-he is #42.
As for us, we are doing well. Nothing new to report.
