2018 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~OCTOBER 27, 2018
The beet field across the road is emptied. Things continue to look barren and harvested between here and town. What a buzz of activity we saw –trucks on the road, equipment in the field. It is quite something to watch the harvest. Possibly watching the seagulls swarm in as they harvest is equally entertaining.
Our hay finally made it to the stack. The stack has already been hauled off–according to the hauler it was plenty hot. He put his loader fork in the stack and said it had quite a lot of heat–it was getting fed soon. If you don’t know, the moisture content of the hay is what causes spontaneous combustion.
We are preparing for the Deja Vu X Boone Litter Discovery and Placement Test. There are only the three pups, but we cannot skip the preparation or any part of the process. They have been to the Three Cliff’s Sanctuary with Christina on Thursday. They had a blast. They are going again today.
This Week on the Blog
We want to thank you who took the opportunity to send us material for our blog.
Kula Bleu was featured twice this week–thank you, Brent. If you have a long memory, you might remember Kula as a notable standout. Click Here to read about him being featured on the Whole Dog Journal. Each of this week’s featured Weims warmed my heart–and Jennifer writing us from the Sandbox (while deployed) speaks volumes.
It takes quite a few stories for us to keep going. Can I just say that you folks who keep us fueled are the best. Thanks ever so much –we appreciate you more than you could possibly know.

On a very personal note
~look at my stuff I found on the shelf at the TVCC Art Department
They call it Christmas–when you pick up the finished pottery. There are several small bowls as well as the bowl of little projects. I ended up with three bulb forcing pots. There are more in the process, but not finished. I have also made a couple of mugs. It remains to be seen how they finish.
Cliff has been about the busy of trapping gophers. He has been more successful than earlier–I think that is excellent. I can only imagine the multiplication process if he had not caught them. I hope he can capture the one working near our garden.
