2018 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~November 3, 2018
We welcomed November and closed out October with the Halloween thing. For many, this holiday is their favorite. There are some who don’t care for it at all. We had two Trick or Treat visitors. It was, of course, our two Great Granddaughters.
I know the girls got those giant pumpkins carved. I have not seen how they turned out. (Speaking of pumpkins) I will have to think about whether I want to purchase small pumpkins for the pies or come up with something else. I am sure Thanksgiving is going to be at Ashley’s place. What I am supposed to bring is not clear, but I suspect it will be pies, corn casserole, and maybe some gluten-free rolls. Whatever they need I will do it.
We completed the Discovery and Placement Test for the three pups. Now we are preparing for the exit. Cliff is slated to meet two families on the 17th of this month. The other arrangement needs to be ironed out–he would like to possibly get a little chukar hunting in if perchance they can set something that will work for us as well as the pup’s new family.
This Week on the Blog
We want to thank those of you who took the opportunity to send us material for our blog. Of course, we started the week (Sunday) lamenting Arleen’s departure, as well as Arliss, being heartbroken.
We appreciated Nancy’s experience with Tikka’s heat cycle. It was good to bring up the spaying and neutering–pros and cons. Jan Magnuson, who has to deal with problem dogs also made some relevant comments on the topic.
It was fun to hear about Moxie, Style, Pushkin, and Zula Blue (AKA Zoo Boo).

On a very personal note
Cliff has been busy around this old Farmhouse making a few small repairs. He put up our mirror–built a little frame for it–that was one of several projects. Another was the dog door — we have had a new one sitting on the shelf for quite some time. Everything is more involved once you get started working on it. Anyhow, a few little this and that things plus the two I mentioned happened. It is always nice to get things taken care of.
I had my annual wellness check–I have to go back for the blood draw. Nevertheless, the visit went well. Dr. Smith was happy with the improvement I’ve made. Cliff is slated for his visit with our primary caregiver this week too. I am not sure if they will do more blood work or not. We will find out.
Ashley cleaned out the tomatoes–that was all that was left in the garden. Oh, there was a couple of banana squash. Our gardening is pretty much done. Of course, there are a few things we could still do, but they may or may not happen.
