2019 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~June 8, 2019
Well, things warmed up for a moment. And then–they cooled off again. There is more rain–as well as cooler temperatures–even snow in the mountains. Our friend in Unity about a seventy miles west of here had her wood stove fired up to stay warm–temperatures dropped below 40-degrees.
Meanwhile, our hay was cut, baled, and in the stack before this current wetness arrived. I have written a few other comments on Facebook about our good fortune. Not everyone was so lucky–there is cut hay laying in the field not even a half mile from us.
We have been busy with Bernie’s pups. They are loving the yard, eating more kibble every day. Most of all, we are taken with their cuteness.
There is a lot to come –big adventures and the Discovery and Placement test preparation.

~The Grandkids and More
The gardening continues–the girls were here to pick pea pods. Oh my gosh–there were so many. That was on Tuesday, but by Friday Christina and I picked another quart or maybe a half gallon–we didn’t measure it. It was a lot.
We (the gardening girls and I) took in a movie. It was the first movie they were old enough to remember. A few years back they went to the drive-in with their parents. We saw ‘Wonderland,’ and the girls were delighted. After the movie, we stopped into Costco for a couple of things. The girls loved the fact that the cart had two seats–they road side-by-side.
Cliff and I have also been catching as many of the summer league basketball games as possible. We went to Nyssa two evenings this week. Brad also played in Nampa, but we missed that game. The surprise is that Nick, (who is officially in the 8th grade) was drafted for the JV team this summer. He is the youngest on the team–see him above wearing #33. It is very exciting to see him holding his own with these much more skilled players.
(Speaking of Cliff) He has been busy finishing the waterline installation, mowing weeds, and making some adjustments. We got our new workstation desktop on Tuesday. That meant we moved our file cabinet into a built-in location–it required some adjustment. Some of the changes are still in the works for this project too! Above you see the RVP guys working on the install–and can get a feel for the OwyheeStar Workstation. Thanks to our grandson (Ashley’s husband), and his crew. The project turned out excellent–we love it.
