Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
September 5, 2020
Last Friday, they arrived to cut our hay–and a couple of days ago, it was raked and baled. Cliff said that we got another 59 bales, which joined the previous 190 (4′ X 4′ X 3) large bales. We expect to get another cutting. Now, we hope it will be worth something. Of course, our fabulous hay guy takes care of all that for us. We do so appreciate it, too.
The onions across the road are mostly harvested. Wow–they are gorgeous colossal onions. Cliff picked up one on the road–it was quite lovely. I keep thinking I should get across the road and grab a couple of onions. I have not yet done that.
It is Henri’s first ever litter –Manfred sired the litter, and I am waiting for fresh photos of him. Time flies by and sometimes we don’t get everything done the way we hope.
This Week On the Blog…
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.
Once again, we find our supply of blog material running low again. If you can help, send me a note. It would be greatly appreciated.
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
Last Saturday I was talking about the new pantry shelves. We were pleased with them, but our son who is the pro informed us we needed to add strength to the front edge of each shelf. (OMG) The photo on the left is the new and improved version. There are two short shelves at the top that do not show, but one of the two is nearly filled with pickles, mustard, and pepper jelly.
As you can see, I have canned 61 pints of peaches, and made bread and butter pickles this week. We were fortunate that we only had to move two shelves to make the upgrade. Cliff has purchased the trim and the pantry door. So, that is in the works.
Our new furniture arrived, and as some of you know we have a very long narrow configuration. So, it was tricky finding something that worked. We are very happy —and Mr. Moosie agreed with the seating.
Stackhouse was not so amused that his bed moved–we think it is a much better location. (Haha) On another note, Cliff is busy preparing for the late fall hunt test as well as irrigating, and repairing things. We always have things that need to be fixed.
