1st day

Posted on May 23, 2014

       The 1st day after, was kind of eventful.  I had just as much paperwork to do (execept it was my own paperwork).  My phone was just as busy (but I wasn’t talking equipment) and I dang sure wasn’t bored.  I got a lot done, but not enough.  Then about 4 pm, I smelled rain, I heard lots of thunder and I heard two lightining crashes.  I finished welding and came out of

I’m done

Posted on May 21, 2014

     It is a bittersweet day on this fine Wednesday.  Today is my last day at Western Equipment.  It’s taken several months of getting stuff wrangled around, loose ends tied up and things put into place but the day is here. I’m done and now the goat business is very serious around here.  Yes, I will be chasing goats full time.  It is now a business.  Have a good day.

     I do like having visitors to our piece of paradise.  You might learn something.  For instance, Saturday afternoon, we had a family in from western Colorado and a family from central Kansas.  The family from Colorado was happy with their online purchase and wanted to look around. No problem.  I’ve got a really good kid, out of a proven doe, but he is bow-legged on the front end.  RIght now,  I would term

     I’ve got a lot of important stuff to say.  But, I realize, that I really just need to shut the heck up and not say anything.  What I can say, is that I really enjoyed watching the Preakness today.  That jockey wasn’t working the whip, the horse was responding quick and he had a lot of gas left in the tank.  Three weeks is a long time and there are horses that are

      A lot of people question my intelligence, but I am the smartest person in this household.  I have proof.  22 years ago, the Dragon Lady and I got married.  It was an extravagant ceremony with lots of family and friends.  Hhmm….maybe not.  It was legal though.         Just think of the lack of intelligence on her part to say “Yes” to me.  Yes, it should have happened two years

     Sometimes it is hard to tell what are rumours, what are facts and what is just plain old BS or gossip.  I have managed to find myself in a shit-storm of all of the above.  Some is true, some is not.  Some is just pure coincidence. Some is speculation.  And a whole bunch of it is just gossip, hearsay and BS.         It wil take me some time to sort

     It’s gotten real serious around here.  Where to begin?  On Saturday, my friends Bill Taylor and Brandon Bruce assisted me in a trip to Carnegie, OK.  We took two 24′ gooseneck trailers.  We stopped at Schneberger’s and looked at goats.  Good set of goats.  NOTHING was for sale yet.  Yet being the key word.  If you aren’t in a good mood when talking to Jared, then something is wrong with you.  You clowns

Friday, Friday, yes Friday!!

Posted on May 10, 2014

     I’ve had better Fridays, but I’ve dang sure had worse.  Work was good because I like the people there.  But….tomorrow is going to be better.   Duke and I burnt horns on a set of kids tonight.  Not fun, but it went well.  I can tell you this much, when the Duke is wanting to get a job done, there is none better.  He and I are having more moments that don’t involve

      I don’t have a movie or a song that ties to the word “Serious”.  But it has gotten real serious in my part of the world.  On a whole lot of different levels.  Let’s change the subject.        Some days, things get more serious than others.  I got my haircut today.  I’m a  lot like the Ray Stevens haircut song,  “When you get a haircut, be sure you go back
