Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
April 11, 2020
The weather is entirely pleasant. Cliff managed to get out to go fishing–caught some sun, but didn’t get a bite. It was still good for him to be away from here for a while. He said there we a few other people fishing at the reservoir–some were camping. He told me about 20 people were there, but people were social distancing.
Oregon closed recreational hunting and fishing to non-residents to limit travel amid COVID-19 restrictions: Regulation took effect last night–Friday (April 10). Reports from other people fishing were that the Owyhee River had been packed–and mostly it was Idaho license plates. So, that is going to change.
We are busy with Spring puppies, but we have this lovely boy who is almost sixteen weeks old–so he has all his shots. We thought you might enjoy the video of his–and it also features Stackhouse.
We are back at mowing lawn, chasing weeds, and general cleanup around the old farmhouse and the surrounding property.
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 have been sticking close to home, other than parts, supplies, and groceries. I have been using the online ordering service and picking up my order curbside. For the most part, it has worked pretty well.
Ashley drove over to pick up her first meal in three weeks–their family has been under quarantine. It was totally strange to wave at the girls from a distance. We will be glad when things get back to normal–hugs all around.
I have things in the works at the greenhouse–but I have not spent much time out there this spring. I am hoping to get a good outcome. Today I need to get in there and check on our starts–and to water things.
Cliff is working on the irrigation pump–we want to fill the pond. Before long, he has to start irrigating. Several essential life functions must continue–they don’t stop because of the pandemic. Nevertheless, let’s not forget those facing the worst of the situation. They need our empathy, thoughts, and prayers. It is not a time to point blame and separate one faction from another–this is a time to pull together. When we do that–things go better. Please stay safe and do what you can to survive or avoid COVID-19.
