Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
May 23, 2020
Malheur County is opening up–but not open. In Ontario, the grocery stores, Home Depot, the dispensaries, and other places seemed to keep going–very little change. The lines outside the dispensaries are always ever-present–and typically lengthy. The parking lots are full. Momentarily supplies seemed disrupted–shelves emptying. But, it never got terrible for us.
We not only ate dinner out and bought some groceries, but we went to Staples looking for printer ink. Apparently, our printer is popular. The ink for that model was pretty much cleared off the shelf, and the clerk told us there would be a delay getting it shipped. (OMG) They had the black and blue cartridges–it got us printing again. Nevertheless, the other colors are dreadfully low, so our printing might be short-lived. The ink might be out of stock, but it appears we can print a bit. Impressively, I bought a 20 pack of the toilet paper we use, and the end cap featured various hand sanitizers. So, if you live in Ontario, you might check Staples for these items.
We have a very few puppies –all are spoken for, but not old enough to leave just yet. Inquiries continue to come– it is avalanche-mode. Of course, the desperation expressed means many of these are going to move along. They have decided to add the fur family member while sheltering. We get it. But we don’t have puppies tucked away. When we share that we cannot predict the future (who we will mate and what we expect to be born), it adds to their stress. Even the shelter in Caldwell, Idaho, is empty. That speaks volumes.

On a very personal note
This morning’s Facebook greeting talked about our life in far Eastern Oregon–which does not resemble life in much of Oregon. I am positive many would call us redneck, conservative, and you fill in the blank. I have never been happier than to live in this area. We are not unaffected, but most certainly less affected and influenced by COVID-19.
Cliff and I have been doing what we do–right here on the farm south of Ontario with our Weimaraners. Cliff had been in a battle with our old irrigation system–but he is brilliant, so of course, he keeps it going. I am finishing up with the business of puppies. At the same time, thinking we need to get the garden planted–soon.
We have no plans –nothing on the horizon to mention. I guess I hope to see the Great Grandkids soon. They light up our life and fill our souls with everything good in this world.
