Thoughts from Kelln

     Much like an eclipse, once a year, the great American legend–Jim Rhodes–calls me with a story.  He lives a pretty quiet life most of the time, but every so often, something fun happens.  Then he knows who to call.  So, last night, Big Jim calls me from Chicago.  He was just leaving the Billy Goat Tavern and Grill.  Knowing Jim, he was there for the grill part.  Me, it would have been for both.

Bo knows…

that it is dang cold outside today.  At least the wind isn’t howling like a gut shot comanche.      Saturday night, I watched the ESPN 30 for 30 special about Bo Jackson.  I have watched several of these programs and they are very well done.  The best one was the Pony Excess about the SMU scandal in the eighties.  This one about Bo Jackson was very well done.  A lot of people don’t remember just

Good morning

     It’s another Saturday morning.  Little bit nippy outside, but it sounds like its going to be a whole lot nippy the next day or two.  Better put 2 or 3 blankets on the wethers.  I would recommend blanketing does as well.       I was the only one at home last night, which meant I had to fend for myself.  Therefore, I headed to Gage.  This isn’t the cleanest town in the world, but they

     Is there a more hated thing to write a check for than insurance?  I’m trying to redo insurance on our house, but it’s hard to get a price unless they also get your auto insurance.  But some companies don’t really want me on their insurance as I got a well-publicized driving award a few years back.  Somebody backed into my pickup and messed up a quarter panel, bumper and in turn the tailgate.  I’m

     I caught the end of one of my favorite movies last night, McClintock!  Like every true American, I am a John Wayne fan and I love a comedy.  That is a goofy movie, but I love it.  I like how so many of the actors in his movies have roles in all of his movies. They might be a drunk in one movie, a cowboy in another and an indian in another.  But what I

     Duke has joined a wrestling program in Shattuck, America.  It is ran by a local guy that has kids that wrestle and he coaches the kids–FOR FREE.  It is really a neat deal.  Every Tuesday and Thursday evening, this guy gives his time to teach these kids the sport of wrestling.  A lot of these kids have several years of experience and Duke doesn’t.  But he is learning fast.      Last night, Shattuck had

     The Champion’s Choice jackpot was this past Saturday.  This was an extremely good show.  Top to bottom, left to right and any other way you want to put it, the quality was stellar in both the wether and doe shows.  There wasn’t a bad goat in the ring.  Some of those classes were brutally tough.  Extremely good quality show and it will only get better next year.  There were some awfully good goats standing

Smells like…

     Is it just me or do teachers assign a whole shit load of homework these days?  I’m sure that I would have spit the bit and probably would have been ineligble.  I’m not blaming teachers.  I know that these teachers have to teach towards a state test, but that too, is a bunch of crap.  When a test is designed by politicians and a union such as the OEA, it can’t be a good thing.

Champion’s Choice

Posted on November 28, 2012

     The Champion’s Choice Jackpot is this Saturday.  This will be a top notch show that is giving away a pile of cash.  If you have a goat from one of the sponsoring breeders, I highly recommend that you attend.  The quality of goats will be way good.  The wether show will be deep in quality.  There was a pile of OYE premium sale wethers that showed at this show last year, including the OYE

Almost only

counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.  The Pokes almost pulled that one off Saturday night.  They actually should have won, the defense was just flat wore out.  This was the first time that I thought OSU had comparable talent and coaching as compared to ou.  Considering it was at norman and we had our 3rd string quarterback, that was a heck of a game.  I am not an ou fan at all, but why aren’t
