Steve Moore obviously had too much time on his hands as he spent the summer of 1997 putting in a grass tennis court and golf hole on his ranch just outside of Eugene, Oregon. The first picture is of Steve & Marsha's house, with the office next too it and the golf green and one of the ponds just below. The second picture was taken in 1998 of Steve playing tennis by himself. The third picture shows Steve patiently awaiting an approaching tennis ball. The fourth picture is of Tom Greider, slicing a backhand with the office in the background. The fifth picture is the late John Douglas, great friend controlling the "Crew".

Of course our great golden retriever, Jasmine, on the tennis court in the summer of 1998. We lost her on 12/31/2009 - she was quite the lover dog! The river boat picture was taken on 6/16/2012 on the McKenzie River, with Marsha Moore sitting, and son Chris Moore and guide Jim Straight. Great day of fishing - Marsha caught around 50 fish herself, including 7 double catches. Chris had the big one on, an old 15 pound trout, but it got away.. The tennis court deck picture was taken late summer, 2013 as my buddy Tom Gillette and my son have built a beautiful redwood viewing deck next to the tennis court.
The picture of two of our new chicks, taken in early July, 2015 at the new MRCI Chicken Hotel. Those two cute little girls are Black Australorps. We currently have 8 different types of chicks residing here. Picture of their new home hopefully soon to follow. The beautiful sunflowers are part of the free range for our lucky 41 chicks. If you look closely at the pictures you can see some of them in it. Chickens have a very large free range area. They spend their days playing, eating, sleeping. Sunflowers give them great cover from hawks. A few of the 71 hens and chicks in their new MRCI Chicken Hotel at bedtime. The green box is called a swarm box, and we cantured some bees in the across town at a friends home. We will eventually move the bees to the top bar bee hive behind the swarm box. The last three pictures are of our new golden retriever puppy Jolena, who was born in February, 2016. Such a sweetie.. The last one is a couple weeks before her two year birthday on February 16, 2018.
