Happy Thoughts

I have been in a mood where I didn’t have much good to say.  So, I stayed quiet.  Haven’t been near this keyboard in about a week.  It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, I just don’t want to always seem negative.

Generally speaking, I am the most positive, upbeat, optimistic person that you will ever meet. Proof of the optimism–

I am a tried & true Okie State athletics fan.  There is always next year.

I am an agriculturist–yeah, farming sucks, cattle prices are down, feed, fertilizer, meds, fuel & labor costs are up, etc.  But I am still fighting the good fight.  So are you.

I don’t always chase the almighty $.  I quit a really good job.  And ended up with a really good job that doesn’t pay like the other really good job.  But, at this point in time, I am fine with it.

HOWEVER, I have a gruff, outer shell that keeps MOST at a safe distance.  Recently, I have realized that the favorite son has these same symptoms.  That, or he is a REAL a-hole!

Here a few things that have put me in a good mood lately.

–Friends, family and fun.  I am beyond lucky to have what I have.

–running a concession stand at a pig jackpot.  Sure, pig shows and concession stands can put me in a bad humor.  However, when the only problem was TOO much help, it was good.  Considering the current economic climate and the fact that the Shattuck Ag Boosters have 40ish kids to support instead of the 30ish of past years, I volunteered us to these shows.  So far, so good.

–Playing in the background is an all-time great movie.

Todd–“Hey Griswold, where do you think you are going to fit a tree that big?”

Clark–“Bend over and I’ll show you.”

Todd–“You’ve gotta lot of nerve talking to me like that Griswold.”

Clark–“I wasn’t talking to you.”


–Doe goats passing over.  Plus, no new panels tore the hell up by doe goats.

–Introducing a new generation to “The Man from Snowy River”. ++++++++

–A week from now is my favorite event of the year–Kelln Family Christmas Eve.  Family, friends, food & fun.  We know the reason for the season and bring family and friends together.  Throw in a bit of fun and some wicked awesome food.  Gifts–sure, but the only gifts that we care about are those bought by the grandkids at the dollar store.  I can’t wait to see what I get this year.  The traditions seem to build from year2 year.  Can’t wait!

Have a good one and a better tomorrow.
