2018 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~OCTOBER 20, 2018
We are still hoving at the freezing point in the early mornings. Things warm up every day. That is extremely nice. You see tractor work all around us. Some are finishing the harvest and others preparing for the spring crop.
It was very dark when we came home late Thursday night. We didn’t see our hay in the stack until Friday morning. (Haha) It was a welcome sight. So we are done for 2018.
Next spring the back field goes back into alfalfa too. We like the hay–it is better for the Weims.
We have the three Deja Vu pups–all males. All promised. We are busy acclimating them to the outside weather and other things. Of course, socialization is a varied constant. Thanks to Ashley, we have the added bonus of her two girls helping us.
This Week on the Blog
We want to thank you who took the opportunity to send us material for our blog. Without you, we would be lost. That is not a joke.
Well, the Stackhouse Sister update with Sucia and Patos was the most popular it seems. At least that is what Facebook reports. (Haha) Boone-sired pups are also highly touted. We hope you enjoyed seeing Deja Vu and Boone.

On a very personal note
Cliff and I
Cliff and I are doing well. It is typical for us in so many ways. Cliff has been doing a lot of tractor work–clean up and moving dirt. Speaking of clean up–Ashley and I worked on the garden, too. It is relatively bare–except for some tomatoes covered with blankets. I think it would be ideal if we got the weeds trimmed, but it might not happen.
We had two bits of corn–one was the decorative Indian Corn. That is gathered up in a small shock at our front door. The other was the Japanese hulless popcorn. (OMG) There is not much to show popcorn wise; however, I hope to see if we can dry it and pop when the girls are here sometime.
Clean up is the word–inside the greenhouse, we need a bit of cleaning. No, it is not finished–lots of work needs to be seen to get this greenhouse winter-worthy. Nonetheless, it served us well this spring and early summer. Now, we have tossed some of the harvested produce on the counter to ripen–including the honeydew melons.
Well, there is also the pottery for me and the hunting for Cliff. We are trying to tuck in a bit of this and that here and there–mine is more planned. Cliff has to work with Rich to make these trips happen for the two of the grandsons–Nick and Brad. What fun! I don’t have any photos from their bit hunt last evening.
