Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
February 22, 2020
We have seen a tractor or two pulled into a field. Farmers are thinking about gearing up–but it is a bit early. Bloomberg’s disparaging remarks about farmers are big news (albeit something he spoke about in the past). Farming was once the backbone of the American economy. American’s were the envy of the world–it seems we have forgotten their importance. People removed from the farm and with fewer ties to agriculture don’t value or understand the significance. In many cases, farmers and ranchers are being vilified –let’s be clear, there is nothing simple about making a living in this manner. Many factors are contributing to farmers going bankrupt–and let’s be clear, you have to be a shrewd business person to make it in agriculture in today’s economy.
We have been looking forward–Spring pups are always on the agenda. Usually, we have a lengthy Wait List for this time of year–many feel it is the ideal time to get a puppy. That being said, we have Spring pups born–these pups will be ready to go mid-April. So, it all begins for us again.
This Week On the Blog…
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. We hope everyone noticed the post regarding vaccine. We hate to keep bringing up this topic, but it is a Weimaraner thing.
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 were at basketball games a couple of times this week–Nick’s last two league games. They fought hard and got a one-point win against Parma. It felt good for everyone. The tournament starts this coming week–it is close, which is a huge plus for us. It is about a fifteen-minute drive to Fruitland, Idaho.
Cousin Wanda, who was aboard the quarantined Princess Cruise Ship is back on American soil (at TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif.)–where she continues in quarantine. So far–she has always tested virus-free. (Hurrah!)
We have learned from our OwyheeStar clients that an Oregon woman and her husband were left behind–he doesn’t have the virus, but he refused to leave his wife behind who is infected. Her symptoms are mild, but once she tested positive, she had been taken to hospital quarantine–where she remains. They are very frustrated that they were left behind. Other Americans who were infected (14) were relocated to America. Let’s not forget to pray for these folks trapped in this situation. The Americans on American Soil are all the better for it–but it is still quarantine. We understand the necessity, but it doesn’t make it any easier for those caught in the situation.
Cliff and I are doing well–all things considered, I might even say remarkable. Cliff has been working on the master bath remodel–a little here and some there as time permits. I feel a little pulled thin–behind the curve, but that is not unusual. Things seem to come like an avalanche–everything at once–then I work from out under the situation. (Haha) Anyhow–that is my plan.
