Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
November 21, 2020
Farmers are still working — most of the crops are harvested, but not everything. There is some preparation, and the loose ends to tie up before equipment can be stored away.
People are putting up outdoor lights in some locations–anything to bring a little joy. Grocery stores are overrun with shoppers preparing for Thanksgiving. People are still arguing about Oregon’s COVID mandate and the limits imposed. Not everyone plans to comply–not sure what that will mean. Cliff and I will be staying home for Thanksgiving–it makes us sad, but we may not join the family for Christmas either.
This week it was the Discovery and Placement Test for Juniper’s current litter. We had to work on the lawn rather than going to the sanctuary. The mud and wetness precluded a trip to our usual location. Nonetheless, we got this accomplished despite the bitter, damp cold weather. The pups shivered along with us.
This Week On the Blog…
We began with the puppy photos on Sunday–I may have to start digging into the archives to keep this up. I should have plenty –that is my hope. We heard from Oscar, which has been silent for quite a while–more than a year or two. I am once again looking for additional blog material. It seems endless, but somehow we manage–thank you for your help.
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). We are always in need of OwyheeStar stories to share. It helps when I get an email even if you send photos via another mode.

Monday–- Nov. 16 — Oscar
Tuesday – Nov. 17 — Soaking Up Sunshine
Wednesday — Nov. 18 —Flo and Dazee

On a very personal note
Cliff and Jerry went out scouting and took what they needed in case they found some Chukars. They didn’t, but they found fresh air, fellowship, and much-needed time away. Bernie went along. She wasn’t too sure about getting into a stranger’s car–but once they were on the way, all was good.
For me–it was a week focused on my work. With the Discovery and Placement Test (as I mentioned above), it meant a lot of extra work to compile our findings and getting that information out to our clients. On a week such as this, I am often left scrambling to keep up with the basics. On the day I worked the longest, Cliff graciously brought home takeout. We have been doing that more lately–for months, we didn’t even consider it, but at some point, even I need relief in the kitchen. (Haha)
On the horizon, and I positive Cliff will shudder when he reads this, we have more shelving issues. The greenhouse needs work–soon. Ambrosia is on rest for a few hours–starting her back up today. And Cliff has his jerky making to manage, too. So–we have the usual things that keep us busy with the extras tucked in as possible. It is always pretty much the same. All is well, and we are happy to have the beautiful sunshine despite the bitter cold temperatures.
