Garth

Posted on December 03, 2018

There was a concert in the fall of ’89 in Gallagher-Iba Arena at Oklahoma State University.  Ricky Van Shelton was the headliner and Clint Black was the next most important act.  And introducing Garth Brooks. A couple of years later, Garth returned to Stillwater with a big concert.       Dude, “Much too young to feel this damn old” is one of my all time favorite songs.  “The Dance” is one of my favorite

Today was just another busy Saturday.  We started the day dealing with mini herf cows.  Pulling cidrs and giving shots.  Then we did the same to some of Duke’s big cows.  We have to adjust the chute in between each type of cow.  Although, there is a pair of these mini herf cows that ain’t so mini.  They will weigh 1100-1200#.  We headed to the feed store to fill creep feeders and feed bins.  Then

Going Off, Monopoly and other such crap

I have this blog for two reasons.  And both reasons are for my own use.  However, there are benefits and downfalls to me having this blog.  I shit-u-not.  I am very aware of the downfalls.  But, here we are.  Still at it. I also realize that there are 2, maybe 3 reasons, that any of you people read this stuff.  1–The chance that u might learn something.  2–cheap entertainment and 3–most are hoping, waiting for

Tolerance, Racism, Bullying, etc…

Posted on November 28, 2018

I watched a tv program on this fine evening that covered all of the aforementioned topics plus some.  It was just an hour long program but it covered hot button topics of current times.  This show identified issues of racism, bullying, tolerance of others and finding a place for each and every soul.  The current year is 2018 but this tv show was made in 1964. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Yes, it is one of

Break’s over

Posted on November 26, 2018

I had been needing a break for a few days.  I kind of got one.  Wednesday was hooked up solid. Thursday was all Thanksgiving.  But, I never got in a vehicle. Friday, hooked up all day long on random stuff.  I wasn’t even sure what to do with a day that I did not have to be somewhere.  So, I took care of stuff at home and made a couple of project visits.  And I

And then…..tacos?!

Posted on November 24, 2018

I hope that all of you people had as good of a Thanksgiving Day as what I did.  I smoked 2 turkeys per request from the Kelln females.  I forgot to check my stash of spices and rubs.  I was out of what I usually use on turkey. So, I piled into the kitchen and made my own rub.  When, I thought that it was close, I had Duke taste it.  Official taste test. I

Words to Write

Posted on November 22, 2018

Hunh?!   I’m not sure where to even start tonight. Last night, I logged on to the Socially Transmitted Disease known as Facebook.  The first post that popped up was a testemonial from a dude that I know.  It was an anniversary date that he had given up alcohol and tobacco.  He wasn’t afraid to address the struggles that he still faces.  It took some balls to write it and an even bigger sack to

Deep Thoughts

Posted on November 21, 2018

I’m dealing with some issues.  I couldn’t remember a password the other day.  It turns out, I was making the same typo over and over.  I remembered right.  I just didn’t type it right. Then, I tried to use my password to get into this dang deal, this KELLN website.  No typos!  Dudes, there are so many logins, passwords and key codes to remember, and some need 6 figures, some 8, some caps, some lower

Good Stuff Saturday

Posted on November 18, 2018

We are going to start with agriculture and sports and then end with agriculture and sports.  But, not necessarily in that order.  Get it?  Me either. I actually had nothing scheduled for Shattuck FFA stuff on this weekend.  Thank goodness.  Needed a break.  That lasted until noonish when I got a text about a pig breathing hard.  I went to the ag farm and doctored a pig.  Dang, draxxin is expensive!  I’ve been working harder

Good Day

Posted on November 15, 2018

I made a trip to pickup a couple of online barrow purchases.  Hopefully, this is the last of the hog buying.  I haven’t had to buy very many but it feels good to be done. We also got all of our goat, sheep & steer OYE nominations done, mailed and typed into the computer (twice).  As an ag teacher, nominations and entries are quite possibly the biggest pain in the ass of the job.  I
