Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~ Winter Wetness
In Malheur county and here at the old farmhouse, we have an Early Spring-like scenario. Yes, it is freezing, but warming up during the day. We have mud–a lot of mud. It is not the time to flee cabin-fever and go out the sagebrush-covered hills searching for the devilish Chukar. Even with four-wheel drive, the most skilled of drivers might find themselves stuck beyond all hope of getting out without assistance. Some are escaping to the upper country and exploiting the snow –snowmobiling and skiing, etc.
Atti’s pups are ready for the Discovery and Placement Test–at least by all appearances. Christina had them out on the lawn–any more extended travel plan (around the farm) is out of the question. We are anxious to see how they perform come Monday. To us, they seem very advanced and undaunted by the unusual–an excellent scenario.
This Week On the Blog…
We hope you enjoyed the various posts this week–including the one featuring Cliff–The Man Behind OwyheeStar.
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. I know you enjoy reading about other OwyheeStar pups–especially those related to yours.

On a very personal note
There is not much to report–things are per usual. Cliff is still working cleaning his shop and eliminating things he figures he will never use. He is working on the Jeeps–no surprise. Of course, we celebrated Cliff’s 70th birthday modestly. I made a homemade gluten-free bundt cake that was deep with chocolate flavor and moist. I have to make an effort not to lose that recipe. And I must admit that for once, I followed the recipe exactly–the author warned that it was the best chocolate bundt cake ever, but you had to follow the steps exactly to get that outcome. (OMG). Fortunately, I had the ingredients essential and didn’t improvise.
COVID-19 is on a rampage, and we are staying in as much as possible. I have bought groceries through the curbside delivery–at least, it was better than sometimes in the past.
Ambrosia has been somewhat busy this week. There were cheesy crotons along with freeze-dried hamburgers, chicken fried steak, and liver. The latter is for our pregnant female Weimar gals. We have four more trays of the croutons and one tray of grated carrots–the carrots should be excellent for dropping into a homemade soup.
