Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

~ Locally

The oppressive heat is here and in most of the Pacific Northwest. It is unseasonably hot–even for the Treasure Valley, which is no stranger to triple-digit temperatures in July and August.


Things continue to keep us engaged with our work–inquiries, applications, and raising pups are all a part of our everyday life. Juniper’s puppies are growing and preparing for the Discovery and Placement process. Of course, those folks waiting to see which pup is theirs are anxious for us to complete the process. It cannot, however, be rushed.

Wilma is preparing to leave sometime in July–but her Mama fell and is having surgery. We will see how this affects the exit date. She is taking over her–following Stackhouse’s example. In some cases, we would prefer she not do so. She is snatching trash which she can, checking counters, and watching the front for interlopers. For a long time, she loved parking under my desk–now the house is hers.

Recently On the Blog…

On a very personal note

Cliff is still working on our bath–a little here and there. Christina is painting the bathroom cabinet, and the good news is that she got the drawers and doors finished. They need Varathane. The color is a vintage green–I like it a lot.

I met with the Oncologist, who says the treatment is working. We plan another contrast CT scan for September, and between now and then, we will be looking at the bloodwork for indications of how things are going. I have another Thoracentesis scheduled for next Friday. I am not sure if I can win this battle or end up with a catheter. Nonetheless, I tell people I am a walking miracle.

Cliff is trying to keep up with the Weims and the farm—including the weeds and watering. Both are challenging.

The garden is surviving the heat–but it is a challenge, and higher temperatures loom large on the horizon. I should be covering the tomatoes to encourage blossom set–I am not.
