GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~October 26, 2019
The weather has been mostly lovely except when it wasn’t. That is profound–don’t you agree? The harvest continues– primarily onions. We see small brush fires here and there–the autumn clean up around yards and farms.
We have things winterized, but we need to drain our cleanup hose every night. You cannot trust that the predicted low will be accurate. It may drop lower than expected. To forget to drain things would probably mean that our nozzle would break. We use the firehose type–it works great.
The Hattee’s litter exit is in the works. The next couple of days are focused on that and not much else. It was up in the air whether the two would leave this evening or tomorrow–another one flies off tomorrow early. And Sunday we meet some folks in Pendleton with their girl. And Lyle is driving over to bring Mesquite so we can see her again. What a sweet gesture.
Martee had his wellness exam with Dr. John Calhoun. It all went well–makes us extra happy. Hope you enjoy these snapshots.
This Week On the Blog…
I was running short on blog material (as you well know)–and the call brought in some good ones. Thank you! If you have a story that you will let me share–I need at least three sentences and a decent photo. I prefer to receive it via email. (FYI–we only use stories that feature the OwyheeStar Weimaraner).
As always, thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. (Haha) We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too.

On a very personal note
As weeks go, this one was too busy to think about what we wanted to get done. (Haha) I managed to meet up with Shirley for coffee on Friday morning. Christina and I visited Becki’s ‘Boots to Roots’ hair salon in Vale, Oregon. As always, we came away very happy. Cliff and I stopped off when we were in Nampa and had some excellent ribs–kind of a big splurge with the sugary bbq sauce, though. I make sugar-free bbq sauce for us.
Cliff fixed a few things that were broken or not working correctly. So, what’s new? There is always those type of things. Our neighbors acquired some additional privacy fencing. Their dog likes to cause our kids to make a fuss. We don’t care, but the neighbors are very considerate.
We got the gluten-free bread maker. I have made a couple of loaves for Cliff–still working on perfecting the recipe. I am hoping tonight’s loaf is a bit less moist than the last ones I made. The flavor was excellent, the texture nice, but it was a bit too damp. It toasted okay, but I think I can improve on it. Nevertheless, Cliff likes the homemade gluten-free a lot more than the stuff out of the store.
Let’s not forget that Ashley and the girls were here early this week. We had a fabulous time–playing games, eating lunch, and a trip to Walmart (the place I typically boycot) to get a few things for Halloween. Don’t feel obligated to watch our stitched together video clips, but if this interests you–enjoy.
