2018 Weekly Synopsis
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~February 3, 2018
Spring-like weather in February is welcome. We were riding around in the Gator–which is open, and it was pleasant. The local garden stores are gearing up –the seeds and whatnot are prominently placed. Of course, if I were to go to Andrew’s Seed–it is a year-round gardeners paradise. I have to limit the opening of my pocketbook when I enter. They have so much to offer– all the practical needs, as well as those fantastically fun extras. The garden wants (and supposed needs). There are other places to buy garden supplies in Ontario–D & B Supply and Home Depot–and there is Walmart. Then there are the little Ma and Pa places–which appeal to me on every level.
Dusty celebrated his birthday yesterday. He turned 13. Where has the time gone? Above is a favorite photo of him taken the summer of 2012. Below are two recent snapshots. We sincerely appreciate the birthday notices. He didn’t get a big fancy cake or a lot of toys. He did finish off the treats and spent some special time with us. We so adore him.
This Week on the Blog
Here are the week’s posts. What a variety–beginning with the lovely ‘Dottie’. So many of can relate. Henry traveled with his parents rather than staying behind. Most of us would want to avoid flying with the Weimaraner; however, in some cases, it becomes import to have them airline friendly. Most OwyheeStar adults will not be flying; however, it is interesting to hear Henry’s story.
Sunday— January 28 — Never Too Big
Monday — January 29 — Mine (Roxy Claims them all)
Tuesday — January 30 — Flying (Henry’s First)
Wednesday — January 31 — Jaeger
Thursday — February 1 — Addy
Friday — February 2 — Supervisor (Stackhouse)
On a very personal note
High School Basketball is about finished for this year. I hear there is summer basketball, but I am not sure what that entails. Possibly there are no games. Anyhow, probably next week will be the end of it unless there is a tournament. We heard there is most likely something, but who can guess it will be held? The last one was in Nampa, Idaho.
The carport and other things are on hold. Cliff is working on the greenhouse so that Ashley and I can have it for our spring garden adventure. I am calling it Garden 369 (or possibly Gran’s Garden 369). We are building it from mostly castoff material–or leftover building supplies. Of course, we will revive some of what we brought from the old garden, and we have a few other items of interest that will become part of the garden. The roof is made from scavenged patio door panels, and the south wall is two ten panel light vintage doors. So far, the base is constructed of cedar fencing material.
I am hoping Christina will join in the fun–she says she kills plants. I know she can grow something given a chance. The granddaughter who wants to do the garden with me says she has a Black Thumb. Am I in trouble? I most certainly hope not. What fun we are going to have with the vegetable garden this year.
