Hello From OwyheeStar

Sunrise October 21 2017

I don’t think anyone is unaware of the current atmosphere and the stress COVID-19 has put on our American lifestyle. I, for one, miss casual gatherings, and the freedom to do whatever I choose–even getting my hair cut.

The reopening of certain areas is not a return to what we have known. I am ever so amazed at how quickly society has changed–and the intolerance of one another–panic, paranoia, and sometimes outright disrespect has become too commonplace. I do so hope for our freedoms to return soon–I long to meet my relatives that I recently discovered. Life is on hold.


All Wrapped in Love and a Blanket

We are inundated with folks looking for a puppy–sooner, rather than later. We understand the reasoning, but there is only so much we can do. With COVID-19 work at home thing, and the added stress a puppy has never been more appealing. It is our sincere hope that folks remember their fur family member when the time comes that they must return to the office or work away from home.

This Week On the Blog…

As always, thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too. We have more than usual, but we will get them all used. 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).

Sunday— May 10 — Happy Mother’s Day

Monday–- May 11 — Bart’s Life

Tuesday – May 12— Dependable Porsche

Wednesday — May 13  My Birthday

Thursday –- May 14 — Enso Boone

On a very personal note

Everyone is doing pretty well. We miss seeing our grandkids, and especially those great-grandkids. Hopefully, that can change soon.

Cliff has got the irrigation system working–yes, he did. But then the pipeline broke, and he got that fixed, and then there was another snafu–beyond my pay grade and understanding. He has been in a battle to keep our outdated system working.

I picked up some fabulous strawberries from my favorite nursery–Malheur Nursery, which is located only a couple of miles away as a crow would fly. I also picked up a few other plants to fill in what I didn’t get started earlier this year. Today, we will survey the garden and see where that takes us.

    Good morning, Shela,

    I’m so glad to hear you and Cliff are doing well… well, except for the irrigation pipeline! I hope he’s getting it all worked out.

    Boy, I am with you on this whole corona/lockdown/stay-at-home crap! I miss living like we normally did, and I refuse to accept that this is “the new normal”!

    Sophia is doing really well, strong and healthy! She just loves to run, the faster the better! And she’s figuring out that it’s more fun to give me the ball to throw it for her than it is to play keep-away!

    Sorry I’ve been out of touch; between work and campaigning, I’m running into myself coming and going!

    Stay well and safe!



  2. Well, I have been totally overrun here. We had more Spring pups born than expected –countless inquiries (more than anyone can imagine). Each person has Puppy Frenzie Virus set on fire with the COVID thing. OMG. ……….I am always here, but may not always be instant. haha
