Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~ Trains and Whatnot (our poor wheel lines)
Cliff was out working on the wheel line situation when this train came by, and he captured it so I could see it too. We see all kinds of things–some of them more interesting than others.
There are several pages on our Longhair Website
Most of you realize that Winnie’s pups arrived last Monday. She has twelve babies. The DNA samples arrived at the Lab yesterday afternoon. The Lab is closed for the weekend, and our samples will get processed in rotation, so hopefully, by Wednesday, we will know how many Longhairs we have.
Winnie and her babies are doing well. You might want to check out the Day One Photos.
Recently On the Blog…
Our faithful readers realize I have been struggling to keep the blog going–fresh easy to post material can be challenging to come by 365 days a year. I had mentioned we would post (randomly) as the material is available. I also said I would create a form (and I did)–which I am not sure how well it will work. It has been an exceedingly busy week, and I have not had time to work on the plan. But I received enough material of the right kind to post every day this week. Thank you!

On a very personal note
Overall, things are going reasonably well–well, Cliff’s irrigation pump went down. That was after his wheel lines took a massive hit during the recent wind storm. We are hoping someone will be able to come and pull the pump soon. He has contacted three places –no one has said when they can get us on the agenda.
Cliff picked up the tile for the master bath–it was the first time we had a piece to see how it was going to look. We are thrilled with it. Now, there is the installing process which will happen as possible. We cannot wait. Christina and I have been working in the greenhouse. We are behind the curve again this year, but I know it will be just fine. The garden will get planted and produce more than we can use. As you can see, we make use of whatever we have available to repot our plants.
We are attempting to trim our expenses — medical this and that adds up to more than we want to think about paying. So, we decided to switch phone carriers to save a bit of coin. We hope this works for us–we believe it will.
I have paperwork to complete to see if I can get a lower rate or possibly another prescription for free. Yes, we have the bits and pieces from all the procedures and the ongoing prescription expense. So, we are doing what we can to lower cash going out.
I am working on the household organization (like always) and eliminating things we don’t need. (OMG) It is shocking how much we can accumulate or inherit. I often wonder if we will ever finish this project–I think not.
