Thoughts from Kelln

      Been burning up the road a bit here the past week or so.  That means lots of radio time.  One of the radio stations had an ad about some cat website.  They offered up the fact that “more than 1/2 of all cats in the U.S. never see a vet.”  They acted like this was an alarmingly high #.  I was like “Seriously, I would never take a cat to the vet.”

     All righty Joey Scott.   Go ahead and start playing some Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Yeah, that song….. That Smell.   “Oohh that smell.  Can’t you smell that smell?”        I don’t have any smoke, no coke and not even the smell of whiskey around here on this fine night.  So the song title is really all that applies here.   Name your favorite smells.  –Fresh cut alfalfa has to be near the top.  Even a

       Another Ellis County Fair is in the books.  This is a low stress deal as we don’t show many animals at this fair.  Between a football game, softball tournament, no money in it, some kids sick and some hurt, we just don’t hit it hard this time of year.  Now, we have 120 students that enter some sort of project in the fair.  And the Shattuck kids run the concession stand.  Although

      There are always causes that need support.  Of course, I’m always a supporter of just about anything FFA/4H.  I’m also a supporter of most things agriculture.  But there is a cause that needs your support.  The L.G.B.T.Q.         Sure, this isn’t a brand new cause.  It’s been around since January.  But there is proof that we need to back it and support it.   It is time that our nation unite

          On this day, I find it harder and harder to stumble over to the keyboard.  One, I don’t like typing on a laptop.  Which brings us to Two–I don’t want to buy a new computer.  Combined with crappy internet service in rural OK, typing a blog is a chore, not a pleasure.  Sometimes, however, I do miss the honey-stuck keys of the Mac.          In a repeat of

       The Fiesta is getting ready to happen.  I thought about going…..but…….then I changed my mind.  I would like to see some old timers like Bob Allen and Ralph Shafer.  I wouldn’t mind making a trip but they are only selling does at the Fiesta and I don’t like doe goats.  Therefore, I’m keeping my ass at home.          Recently, I did have a thought that made me shudder.  I was

        It is time for me to quit using a laptop.

      I’ve had an interesting week.  There are just some things that you can not prepare nor plan for.  I had an interesting talk about AIing goats with one of the best goat ladies in the business.  She was talking about putting a speculum in a doe and in order to try to look through it and see the cervix, she was twisting the tube and well, the twisting motion must have been

Thoughts–I’m Old!!

     This afternoon, I had been checking some student projects, driving and thinking.  As I pulled back into the house, the Dragon Lady was placing a sprinkler in the front yard.  One of those little sprinklers that just shoots a cone of water up & into the air.  No moving parts.  This provoked numerous thoughts through my skull.       First, I wish that I had been the one to patent such a simple

Part 2–more BS

        I don’t even want to be a part of any of these goat discussions but like a great Whitesnake song–“Here I go Again!”           I do not know everything about the goat industry.  I know more than most but not as much as a couple of others.  I have been around and been associated with “In Demand” goats.  900, Freaky, 191 and Rumour Has It to name a
