Benefit Auction

Posted on March 24, 2014

     The Emily & Hallie Cooper Benefit Auction will take place on March 25th on  If you haven’t heard the tragic story involving the loss of these girls parents in a short time span, then go to the banner on that website and check out the auction.  There are 156 items listed.  There has been an overwhelming amount of stuff donated.  Too much for an online sale, so there will also be a

     For those of you that don’t know, OYE stands for the Oklahoma Youth Expo.  I will put this show up against any of the majors in terms of depth of quality.  Why?  One reason is that there is not a more retarded breed of show addicts than OKIES.  Two, the Texans can spread out amongst a pile of majors, large districts and high paying counties.  Add in, that in Texas, if you win

St. Patrick’s Day

Posted on March 17, 2014

    It is actually still St. Patrick’s Day eve and I am well behaved.  Monday, March 17, there is a chance that the wheels will fall off.  It is now OYE time.  It’s time to get serious, just not too serious.         I knew that picture would crop up again.  I don’t pose for very many pics, but back on July 4th, Braden took a shot of me with ol tag

      Some people just know how to win.  Doesn’t matter if it is stock shows, sports, academics, music, business, etc.  Some people are just consistently successful.  Hard work, desire, luck (as in the harder you work, the luckier you get).  I’ve been sitting on this blog post for about a year.  I didn’t want to jinx anybody.         Rewind, to March 2013 and I had a post about watching Lora

     I don’t understand the proper protocol of this facebook crap.  Who do you friend request?  Who do you confirm?  What’s appropriate?  I guess that I will do this deal like I have done everything else in my life.  I’ll do it until I screw it up and then I’ll fix it and not do that same mistake again.  It’s a little bit scary when you confirm or friend request and that person immediateley

The day after

Posted on March 13, 2014

     Yes, I have survived a full day after setting up a facebook account.  I will also admit that I am guilty.  Yes, I got done with chores last night and came to the computer and clicked on a website–not the Chive or oklahomashowgoats as has always been my routine.  I went straight to facebook to see if I had any new friends.        Don’t be expecting me to write anything on

     This facebook deal is absolutely retarded.  I don’t have a clue what I am doing and I don’t enjoy doing something that I don’t know what I am doing.  I don’t like the website fundamentals of facebook, but the software is OBVIOUSLY scary effective.  How the heck does it know to list me to all of these people?  I will gladly buy a goat from the first goat breeder that “accepted” me.  And,

…like a gutshot Comanche in an old western movie.  That would describe the wind that hit this piece of paradise this afternoon.  It is blowing relentlessly. What lilttle soil moisture that we had from the little bit of snow is now gone.  But enough about the weather.        My dad saw my last feed bill.  “I don’t know how you afford to feed that high dollar stuff.”  Goats have an inverse ratio as

Under-rated–UpDated–2 letters

Posted on March 11, 2014

      How about this weather in NW OK today?  It was stupid nice.  Too good.  Too hot and no rain in the forecast.  But it was a good night to watch a jr. high baseball game.  Got home and did chores, then came inside and turned on the tube.  I could watch JAWS or a concert on PBS.  Duke and I decided on the concert on public tv on this fine evening.  I

March Sunday

Posted on March 10, 2014

      I will be the first to admit that the time change did NOT affect me waking up and heading to the couch to watch some Law& Order about 5 am.  However, I did fall asleep on said couch and did not wake up until 9:30 am.  Which means that it was 8:30 am yesterday morning.  So, I gathered up some goats to wash, clip and take a few pics.   With considerable
