Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
July 18, 2020
The gardens and crops seem to be doing excellent. I love the lush green fields–I never tire of it. Cliff says the plan is for the hay to be cut on Monday–we will see what happens. I hope Mr. weather cooperates once it is cut.
The main topic of discussion is COVID-19, and I know we are all very weary of hearing about it. Regardless, the numbers are up. What that means exactly is not clear other than there is more testing and thus also more positive outcomes. Here we have the prison, a senior care facility, and Kraft Heinz Ore-Ida, each with a significant outbreak. Ultimately, hospitalizations and COVID-related deaths are what count. It is scariest when it gets a run at a senior care facility where so many residents have underlying health issues. One person died at Brookside. (Very sad!)
Bernie’s babies continue to thrive and do well. The Great Grands were able to visit this week--and the puppies were a hit with them. Of course, the two girls are experienced helpers. They are always disappointed if they stop, and we don’t have puppies. Bernie is one of the most amiable Moms ever–not too many would be so willing to let the kids handle the pups like her. Evie likes to pretend she is Dr. Evie–you might notice the stethoscope.

On a very personal note
You might remember our grandson, Bradley, who is a senior this year and a basketball player. Typically summer basketball camps and tournaments are a thing–but we all know what is happening. There have been events scheduled–and then canceled. The lack of summer basketball is disappointing, but finally, a tournament is happening. He and his family are in the Salt Lake area, where he is playing with a small group of Treasure Valley players. A few college coaches are interested, and the coach leading this team is one of them. They posted a couple of his games on Youtube, so we did see some of what is happening. (What fun!)
Cliff is doing better, but having the pneumonia return is a concern. At least it is bacterial and not viral–which means it is treatable. As you know, he still is doing the minimum–and more. Otherwise, it is the garden, and working on the old farmhouse to see what we can do with the area we have available. It is not dinky, but we are trying to pack quite a lot into this space. (Haha)
