Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

~ Locally

The first cutting of hay is happening all around us–they will be here next week to cut ours. We don’t expect our tonnage to be anywhere close to the average amount. Cliff is considering pulling the large field this fall– planting winter wheat.

Farther east (across the railroad tracks), the field was lying neatly in beautiful rows until the evening wind picked it up, throwing it south. The view at times was spectacular–a big circular showing looking to be several feet high. I am sure nothing is hurt, but the neatness is gone. (haha)


With two litters on the ground, we have a lot of hands-on activity. The best was we had three little socializers who helped up on Thursday. I didn’t capture it, but Jackson (who is one year old) was kissing the puppies–there were lots of excited noises. The last time the girls were here, they were so disappointed that we didn’t have any puppies.

We introduced Wilma to the girls–at first, she was reluctant but well-behaved. Then she kept going back to them. It was so cute.

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 got the old raised bed moved and the blueberry plants set. We may purchase one more–we have wooden shakes to get up on that side of the greenhouse. It wouldn’t take too long and possibly Christina and I could staple them in place.

Here is a video clip of Bradley making a score–even though Ontario’s team is not very good–Brad is playing well. We are so proud of him for sticking with it despite all the challenges of playing wearing masks. Not winning games–and sometimes getting blown out. In Friday’s game against LaGrande, Brad had at least 20 points, several blocks, and many rebounds.

Of course, I had another Thoracentesis–the right lung drained. It went so much better than the last two times. The Radiology team, lead by PC Cory, made additional adjustments which proved beneficial. I am ever so thankful. I had an emergency dental visit–and I am also grateful to Payette Valley Family for working me in on Friday. They (and Dr. Reece) were a lifesaver.
