Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

The Treasure Valley weather is much cooler–only a few days ago, it was pressing the 90-degree highs, but today we won’t reach 70. Thankfully, our hay guy (Chris Payne) decided to hold off the first hay cutting because of the trending weather pattern. That gives our alfalfa a chance to rebound a little after the parched season beginning due to our irrigation pump failure.
Winnie and her babies continue to do well. The litter wellness is scheduled for the coming week. The pups have taken to the kibble–they are still nursing on Mama, too. There is a lot of hands-on time with the puppies. Isn’t this photo adorable–the two pups hugging.
Recently On the Blog…
We no longer post a daily blog–instead, we present things (randomly) as the material is available. Thank you! For those wondering, the easiest thing for me to repost is a paragraph with a photo or two. Often the most popular posts are those that share a funny topic–but of course, everyone loves hearing about your Weimaraner. They like to compare it to theirs–for example, these stories that featured Caleb and Thor were both lovely. Young Willow is an excellent example of a Weim’s activity with a funny little story.

On a very personal note
Cliff is working on getting the alfalfa irrigated after the irrigation pump quit us this spring–it takes about ten days to get across the fields once typically. He has been working in the owner’s bath–preparing to install the medicine cabinet. He ordered our toilet–the one we had wanted was on sale–so he got it coming.
Yesterday, we watched Bradley’s first basketball game of the season–in case you didn’t read about it on the morning ditty. He played well, they lost the game to Vale–which was not unexpected, but Brad had double-digit scores, and probably similar rebounds, etc. We couldn’t hear anything–and we were not allowed to attend the game, so we watched it streamed to our television.
I have scheduled a flight to Colorado for September to meet my sister (Mindi) and hopefully visit my cousins–Bob, Mary, and Linda. Cliff and I still hope to make a trip later in the fall to visit my other sister (Patti) and her husband, Bill. Cliff has always dreamed of visiting the Grand Canyon. Of course, both will be quick trips.
I continue to struggle with fluid on the right lung–I hope the medication change (Verenio dosage increase) will help solve that issue. I have started the new protocol. So far, I am still tolerating it. The last thing I want is a permanent catheter. But there are worse things, too. I am scheduled for yet another thoracentesis next Friday.
Finally, our garden is hugely behind, but we are making progress as time and energy allow. I am envious of everyone who has a plethora of flowers on which to feast their eyes.
