Thoughts from Kelln

       F&P was a common nickname given to a dude named Frank Powell.  Yes, those were his initials but the letter F was a valuable component to his vocabulary.  He never meant anything negative by it.  However, the “F” word was a noun, verb, adjective, adverb, everything that it could possibly be used for. Those in the hog world knew Frank.  He was a gruff guy but he would do anything to help

     It truly baffles me that you people read this crap.  Congrats!!           There is a lot going on here in the greater Fargo area.  I actually made it to Mass this morning.  And we lived up to one of the songs.  “Seeds scattered and sown.  Wheat gathered and grown.”     Check yes to all of that.  We drilled some cover crops as well as hegari seed.  And yes, when I

Not enough time

       I don’t have time to write much.  Me being busy means that I am probably not in trouble with anybody.           It is amazing how many people deal with plantar fasciitis.  One foot or both.  Jamie Kratzer sent me a message about Ariat shoes designed just for this deal.  Now, much like Forrest Gump, I look at everybody’s shoes.  Comfort is king.  Chris Cockreham showed up with some Heel

Random Kelln Problems

      Let me preface this post with this statement, “In all honesty, this guy (me) does not have many current problems.  Just a lot of crap that are inconveniences.  Sure, some of it is WAY serious!  But, seriously, compared to the rest of the world, we don’t have any real problems.”          Having said that, here’s what we got going on at the present time.  A couple of weeks ago, I

   I like music.  NO. That is a wrong statement.  I LOVE good music!  Don’t care if it is rap, country, red dirt, rock, opera, whatever.  I love good music.  Now, most probably think that rock music, especially 80’s rock is my favorite.  They would be kind of right.  Trust me.  A Def Leppard, Tesla, Motley Crue, AC/DC, Van Halen deal is right up my alley.          However, great country music is hard

Firsts @ Fifty

Posted on May 27, 2021
     These are just a few of the firsts that I have done since I turned fifty.   Bifocals–I now have my first pair of bifocal glasses.  And I will be honest, they are kicking my ass.  This is going to take some getting used to.  Airline tickets–Seriously, I had never made my own airline reservations.  Ever.  Last Monday, I realized that I could squeeze a trip in and went to dealing with the internet

Livestock Adventures

       Even though I’m all but out of the goat business, I still have goats to buy for students.  So……that means I’m still traveling, studying genetics and flipping rocks looking for show goats for kids all while staying within a given budget.  I still have an elite taste and well, the budget doesn’t match my taste.  Therein lies the challenge.  I like it!      A few days ago, I hollered at Clayton

      Duke is currently at home.  Good.  Maybe I can get some work out of him.  While here, he fired up a movie on netflix.  Not a new movie but dang sure a good one.  Dances With Wolves.  I came in near the start and couldn’t hardly walk away from it.  Such a good flix.  I can still remember watching this in the $1 movie theater in Stillwater, OK….by myself.  I loved it.

     It is banquet season.  Academic banquet, sports banquet, music banquet and of course, the FFA banquet.  Throw in an elementary awards assembly, a middle school awards assembly and a high school awards assembly.  People get sick of sitting through awards ceremonies.  Plus, graduation is looming next.         There are only a few things that attendees truly care about when attending a FFA banquet. 1–Did the officers know their parts and did

       Some days you just don’t want to think.  You want to wake up, do chores, drink an Eskimo Joe’s glass of orange juice and then sit on the throne for a bit.  That’s how a day should start.  Just thinking.  And then you think, that may have been the highlight of your day.       Tonight, while just driving and listening, a Night Ranger song came over the xm radio waves.  Night
