Hi All..Really excited to find Sparkers so close to home..I live in Halfway and travel to LaGrande and Pendleton periodically.
I am dedicated to loosing at least 50 lbs this next few months. I have a daughter that lives in India with her family..and they want me to come visit this Aug. I just submitted my passport info..and after will get my visa.
I am not farmer..but was raised on one in Michigan..if that counts. My hubby and I are both retired..we have a combined family..yours, mine ,and ours..13 children total.
We are very active in our church (LDS)..and the great community that we live in.
I am 66 yrs. old..didn't think I looked my age till I saw my passport picture..What happened?
I love serving others and family.., doing genealogy, and am considering getting on the city council this fall. I garden, can, crochet, dehydrate, quilt, am the Superintendent over preserved foods at the local fair, spear head the annual Zucchini Fest, and am lazier the older I get.
I dislike walking..but tolerate doing the recumbent bike. I am going to force myself to do at least 10 min. of walking to the DVD by Leslie Sansone...5 days a week...along with the 30 min. of biking .
I have been married for 32 yrs...to a guy that I love dearly.
Well, nothing else that I can think of to share..although my thinker ain't what is used to be..! LOL!
Glad to have found you all.. emoticon

Hi Everyone,
Reintroducing myself, joined here but (shame on me)not very active. I grew up on a ranch just 5 minutes southeast of Pilot Rock. I have been battling a cluster of autoimmune diseases and just getting myself out of bed and to work each week is all I can do. I would like to email/post with folks I might actually have something in common with!! LOL!! Geographically large area, but folks can be very close despite the physical distance.

Hi, all. My name is Wendy. I was born in Pendleton. I currently live in Colorado, have a wonderful life partner and 3 children if you count four-legged ones (dog + 2 cats), love to crochet, crossstitch, and read, am teaching myself to knit and paint, and just started walking 5Ks this year (which I absolutely LOVE). Hope y'all have a great weekend!

~Wendy

Hello every one... I live in Hermiston.. My story as to what brought me here is a long one so maybe some day I will get to that.. I was born and raised in Southern Calif and moved to Hermiston 2 1/2 years ago. Not a farmer and neither is my husband..

I'm glad I found this group I was beginning to think I wasn't going to have any local help... I need to lose 85 pounds so all the encouragement will be greatly excepted!!!!!



You've got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance.

Hi. I'm new to SparkPeople.com and new to this team. I have made the decision to change my lifestyle, and was looking for supportive folks in my neck of the woods. I live in La Grande, OR.
CATHICAM, I moved here in Sept. of 2002, and I absolutely love it here! It's nice to find someone so close to home.
I'm looking forward to getting to know folks better and becoming more involved in this site and with this team.
Thanks. Morgan

Hello everyone! I am truly blessed to live in Joseph and be able to see the mountains, etc. every single day! We've lived here for nine years after being away from Oregon (in Virgina) for about 12 years. My husband's family on his mother's side were pioneer settlers in the 1870's in Imnaha so he has "ties" here. When we were returning to Oregon we both said we weren't going back to where we'd grown up (So. Oregon and Beaverton for me, Reedsport and Milton Freewater for him) - no way! There's a neat story of our coming here in the dead of winter (Dec.) and not having a home nor jobs! But the Lord truly was with us and we had both within just a few days! The realtor kept saying it was a miracle and we believe that too. Keep on sparkin', ya'll (learned that in Virginia!) Carol emoticon

Hello, I live in La Grande, have lived here pretty much all my life. Though I'm not a farmer I live in a farming community. Thought it would be nice to be on a team with members close to home. Most of my family live in MiltonFreewater and Walla Walla.

Look foward to the journey with you.

Hello, my name is Nancy. I currently live in Puyallup, WA but my husband and I are moving to Bend, OR (actually near Sun River) in mid March. We are retired school teachers ready to embark on a new chapter in our lives. I know Bend is not farm country but was wondering if i could join anyway?

I guess Southern Nevada to Eastern Oregon with places between like in the start of this thread would do ok for me too. One year we grew wheat but it didnt turn out very well. Our last venture a year or so ago was at the farmers market in Pendlton.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Welcome. Sounds like your background is similar to mine. I lived in Milton-Freewater for several years. I always liked that area. Keep in touch! Sissy emoticon

Hi,

I too just found this page. My family had and have ranches in Easyern Oregon. I was born in Redmond and still have family on ranches in Redmond and Bend. My husband always wanted to farm but we weren't able to. I live in Milton-Freewater where we retired to. My husband and middle son were born here but we had to leave for the Dallas, Or. area for work back in 74. It was so nice to come home again and we have been back since 2001. The weather and cost of living over here are just great! I don't miss the rain at all. It's nice to know that there is someone else over in this area.

Hi
I just found this team. My family had a ranch/farm in Wallowa County while I was growing up and I have lived in Oregon almost all of my life. I now live in Umatilla County. I prefer the hot and dry conditions to the ice, snow and cold temperatures of Wallowa County. Hope to meet some of you and good luck. emoticon

I live in Athena and teach school in Heppner. We attend church in Pendleton. This is the heart of wheatfarming and the kind of land that grows on you. I grew up in the Portland area and then lived a bunch of years on the coast, before moving to California and S. Nevada for a while. Then I moved to Eastern Oregon and it's God's country. Come join our Spark Team and begin some conversations.
