GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~November 16, 2019
A lot of locals are reporting they are sick with colds, flu, or some kind viral thing. (OMG) So, I got the flu shot — a thing I have not done in recent years. Cliff and I decided it might be wise this year–so I did.
I was a little ill after getting that flu shot, but nothing all that much. That was just before Cliff took sick. At first, he imagined he had caught the flu from me–but in a day or so, we ruled that possibility out. He never developed a fever–but at the same time, he was violently ill. It was as if he had been poisoned. It was then he admitted he had several reasons to believe that the gluten-free pancake he ordered was a regular pancake. It was huge he ate every bite except the nibble I tried because he raved about it. The ticket read Pancake Breakfast when he paid for it, and Cliff didn’t want to tell me that he ate gluten. So, he hoped he would be okay. He was not–and many of you know he has been dreadfully ill. If you are interested, you can read a bit more on this topic at the bottom of this blog post.
Bettee’s ten pups are doing well. We thought you might like a sampling of their week-one update photos. Over all, the litter seems to be thriving.
Meanwhile We expect traditional smooth coats, too. We are still holding our breath–it seems to be a typically OwyheeStar pastime. Meanwhile, the Longhairs are keeping us plenty busy. All but one pup has moved into the adjustable puppy collar–each pup’s collar color will be recorded on the next update.
This Week On the Blog…
It has been a tough week with Cliff being so ill. My goodness, a few of you helped me out more than you know. I didn’t have to try to work up something. I didn’t need to revamp pieces and put them together. I just used what you sent. Thank you!
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. 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).

On a very personal note
We mentioned that Cliff has been dreadfully ill. Of course, that affects everything at OwyheeStar and for the household. Christina and I have been able to work together and get most everything done. Hopefully Cliff will have a miraculous bounce back.
I’ve been so blessed by our friends and the OwyheeStar community. Everyone has been supportive, loving and caring to us. We feel very appreciated and loved. We could not make it through with out you.
I finally talked about my Late Discovery Adoption (LDA) situation. At first, I was speechless in every way. I cannot explain in great detail why or what I was thinking. I am writing a blog–and as I find the words, I will post more on this unexpected journey as well as the unfolding story. I want to say that my maternal family has made me feel as if I am found treasure. Wow! I never expected that–but once I knew I had been given away, I wanted to find out where I came from as well as learn about my birth mother. Then too, I wondered if I would find brothers and sisters. I don’t feel as if I have to justify looking into this matter. I see this as a miracle. Learning I had been adopted does answer some of the questions that plagued me forever. As I find answers, more questions surface, but one thing for sure–there is something I never had before–resemblance.
This discovery is like everything in life–it is what you make of the whole thing. Your attitude is everything. I didn’t go in with expectations–in the end, I feel more than fortunate.
