Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
May 30, 2020
Malheur County continues the opening process. There are places where you can eat, more places to shop. The downtown businesses weathered the Covid-19 virus closure. However, now a couple of blocks are closed for renovation. The business owners report the shutdown is impacting the traffic and potential income–they are not sure they can weather the improvement process. I sincerely hope they can. Meanwhile, we had these social-distancing hang gliders fly by our home. It was fun to watch.
They have been cutting hay nearby. Ours is slated to cut as well, but possibly today’s thunderstorm will delay us a day or so. Otherwise, the summer-like triple-digit temperatures arrived earlier than expected. So far, the tender garden plants have adapted to the heat–we will see how they faired this morning’s storm a bit later.
We are busy with the last of the pups–it is going to be extra busy, and then we will take a break. The break–however, is not from inquiries which continue at an all-time high. People are desperate to find a new fur family member–we hope that after things go back to a more normal pace, that these additions will be able to adapt, adjust, and learn how to stay home alone.

On a very personal note
Our garden is planted–well, we planted a few more things early this morning. Now, we wait and see how this turns out. There are not as many types of vegetables, but we have various tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, watermelon, cantaloupe, and banana squash. Oh, and we have a few pepper plants, too.
We had company this week–our daughter dropped by, and then our oldest granddaughter (Ashley) and the three great-granddaughters. We had a lovely lunch and had a chance to see Jackson, who was born in January. We had only seen him once before. He has grown so much, it won’t be long, and he is going to be crawling around–if he needs to, because his sisters are ever so vigilant and helpful. (Haha)
