2018 Weekly Synopsis
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~April 21, 2018
A lone turkey has made an appearance. Last year the number escalated to seven at one point. They would make a midday appearance and work through the hay field one direction and then back. We never knew what they were doing. They are fun to watch; however, we don’t want them chasing the pheasants off the place. Not there is an abundance of upland game birds other than the California Quail.
Cliff has the water going on the wheat as well as the alfalfa. The weather predictions for warmer temperatures mean everything needs water. The wind doesn’t help, either. It is hard to water effectively with the wheel line.
The Spring pups are keeping us busy on every level. It is a joy. At the same time, it requires our constant attention. Each step of the process we have things to check off the list. A lot of these things involve the clients, and others are things we have to schedule—like the Veterinary Wellness Exam.
This Week on the Blog
We hope you enjoyed this week’s posts. We wept with Dewey’s family and rejoiced with Lily’s fan club. It was great to receive news about Pushkin and Remi. We shared information about the importance of pet identification as well as introduced you to Deja Vu. It was a diverse and fun week. Thank you, to the contributors that make this so much easier for Cliff and Shela.

On a very personal note
We had Cliff’s blood work redone at the doctor’s request. They had to toss the first because they didn’t get it pre-approved. We have another appointment coming up next week to discuss the results of his ultrasound as well as the blood counts and the DNA. Maybe we will find out something definitive– perhaps not.
The wasps have made an appearance. I cannot believe how they are out so early and in full force, too. Cliff tried to knock down the nest–I don’t think he got it. I hope we can get them wiped out. It was shocking to see such a large nest appear so quickly this spring.
The garden needs work. We will see if we can put some effort into getting our beds ready to plant. Our granddaughter gardener has been very ill. I have been keeping our greenhouse plants alive–watered. It is time to get the plants out to the garden. That means more work for Cliff who has so many projects going. OMG, I look forward to harvesting fresh veggies in the near future. I am sure you will grow weary of our photos and garden news. I might have some next week. :O)
