2018 Weekly Synopsis
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~June 2, 2018
Hello June–the green fields of wheat are headed out. I know it won’t be too long and we will see them start to turn gold. For now, it is beautiful. Hay in different stages surrounds us as well–ours is cut and awaiting the baling process. We see bales in a neighbor’s field and others going to the haystack. The rain has challenged the schedule most had in mind. Isn’t that the way?
Our old Russian Olive Tree has been on the place longer than Cliff. That is saying a lot. It has served the farm well. Cows used it to scratch. Pigs dug around it in search of a treasure. Much later is graced the park-like setting enjoyed by family and friends. The tire swings were a favorite –holding secrets and providing fun. There will be no more screams as someone pushes you higher–and higher. On Sunday morning we awoke to find her lying prone roots exposed. This reality wrapped us and others in an expected sadness. It seemed as though she would live forever.
We are puppy engaged. What does that entail you might ask? Well at every stage of the process there are specific steps we take. It is our goal to stick to the usual schedule. In the end, we want a puppy ready to join their new forever family. One who is prepared to housebreak, crate train, and more. It is labor intensive. All the while, there is a client side of this going on–inquiries, dialogue, and if you are getting a puppy, there are litter specific things.
Dreams–it is all about helping someone else realize a dream. It brings us great joy. We love the OwyheeStar Community. We plan to be here as long as we blessed and able to continue–ah a long time is our plan.
This Week on the Blog
We hope you enjoyed this week’s posts. We ended the week with a beautiful word-picture of what it can be like raising the young Weimaraner puppy. We sincerely hope it would always be about like it is with Mr. Tilman. There is a variety of other posts including our Chewy product review. We have used this several times on the pups, and each time we love it more. Thanks to http://www.Chewy.com for giving us the opportunity to be an influencer.

On a very personal note
The garden, kids, top our personal life. Some of this was interupted by Mr. Flu-bug’s visit. What a bummer. Ashley, the great-granddaughters, and Cliff have all succumbed to it. So, far, I have only had a mild encounter (little nausea and a slight headache), and I would like to keep it in that realm for sure.
Our oldest grandson graduated high school this week–Congratulations Jake. Bradley–the second oldest grandson is playing summer basketball for the Ontario High School Varsity–he is a Sophomore. Remember, he wears size 18 tennis shoes. (OMG) We are not sure what our youngest grandson (Nick) has planned, but he will be at the Ontario Middle School Next year. We hope to see him again soon. We would love to have him come to help us a bit this summer. It would be great–just hanging out with him. He likes basketball, too. He is a very mechanical fix-it type of person. So, it could be fun for him and Grandpa Cliff to hang out.
