GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~July 27, 2019
It is that time of year–when the Treasure Valley is loaded with local fruit and vegetables. Gardens are overflowing with the zucchini–ours included. The OwyheeStar Weimaraners love eating it raw.
The farmers are busy–harvesting some crops and tending others. There are quite a few onion fields that look quite nice this year. It is surprising how many fields of wheat there are between here and town. We also see beans, sugar beets, corn, etc. Our neighbors, the Kamashiges who farm near us–they brought us a 50# bag of red potatoes.
Cleaning has been this week’s focus–sometimes to the Weimaraners chagrin this includes ears. We have various ear products and a protocol for unique situations. There are certain products (like hydrocortisone) which are not safe for the pregnant or lactating moms. In some cases we are merely doing a preventative care thing–and like I said, we have various products we use.
I have been working on our primary Website. When we transitioned over to the new program, it was a time when I was in treatment. I am not even sure how clearly I was thinking. It is beyond time to edit, update, and clarify some of the information. I am not sure how long this process will take. I hope not too long, but realistically, I may only get one page done per day. That is sobering when you consider how many pages there are that need my touch.
This Week On the Blog…
What an array of interesting posts–thanks to everyone who made this possible. I truly appreciate you sending the Emailed Updates–along with the photos, etc.
Isn’t it fun to read about the various OwyheeStar Weimaraners? Of course, some of these are just starting their journey. Others are checking back in after an extended period of quiet–like with Raein.

On a very personal note
~At The Old Farmhouse
Cliff is working on the master bath–it is slow going. We are happy though to be getting some of the basic things set up. He will lay tile before long in the adjacent Puppy Whelp and Care area.
The Gardening Girls are absent again this week. I am not sure exactly when they will be back. I hope soon. We have not heard from them. Cliff and I cannot eat all the produce–or keep it all picked. (OMG)
As weeks go–I think we can call this one quiet. There are the usual as well as mundane tasks keeping us engaged. Several trips were made to town for supplies, etc. That is the kind of week we have had.
