Birthday Boy doing chores

Digging out some of the ditch

The neighbor's gate

Opening our gate

Water flowing through
We are watering our pasture with the Deschutes River.  How cool is that??  Seriously, water is a big deal around here, and we receive our share every nine days for nine hours.  Today, we opened the water gate and watched it run through the ditch and spread into the pasture.  It was amazing how fast it traveled just in 30 minutes.

For the birthday fete, we had lunch at Zydeco in Bend.  It was delicious!  We splurged on an order of corn and artichoke fritters for an appetizer.  Then shopped at REI, Fly and Field, and The Patient Angler.  Thanks to everyone for the warm wishes to Emil!
