Thoughts from Kelln

Thursday night

Posted on August 24, 2012

Just crawled my ass inside from building another pen. I had ran a sprinkler on this area for awhile so I could drive the posts. Duke was watching “Smokey & the Bandit II”, so I thought I better watch the end of it with him. Classic characters. I like movies like this, I don’t learn anything but I’m in a good mood at the end.

Made it to Omaha for John Deere new product intro. I enjoy coming to this as Deere puts on a good show and we get to see all of the new models of equipment. New balers, swathers, gators and more tractor models. Cool event and I actually learn something. It is dry up here, but it is still way greener than western OK. No, I haven’t looked at any goats and I don’t have plans

Rain, Cantaloupes and Mustard

Posted on August 19, 2012

     Got to use my windshield wipers for just a few minutes on Saturday.  We didn’t get anything but a damn sprinkle.  Just enough to clean the windshield.  However, farther east towards Cleo and Enid, they got a dang good rain.  Nowadays, rain is kind of like going to the high school prom,  even if you didn’t get any, you are glad that somebody got some.      We made it to Susan Litzenberger’s surprise 50th

I always kind of liked the Friday movies with Ice Cube. Good humour, good story, not much thinking required to understand them. I really like this Friday evening. Another trap done. Stuff moved. Yard sprinklers on and the Dragon Lady and I sitting on the porch enjoying a nice Friday evening. Speaking of a Friday evening in OK, Duke just modeled his Shattuck football pads, helmet & jersey. Don’t know if he will be worth

It’s starting to take shape. Weaned goats, does with babies, wethers, & Rumour Has It are all here. All we are lacking is the open does. They will be here soon. Had huge help on Saturday. My dumb ass was po-go ing around on one leg and wasn’t much help. Tyke, Dragon Lady, Bill Taylor, Tony Sessions & Daniel Kelln loaded goats, panels, feeders, sheds, etc. Six trailer loads delivered. Very good behavior by all.

Spending money…owww! Moving…costs money….double owww!!! Wasps… Holy jeeminy owww!!!!! None of this hurts as bad as the Dragon Lady sneaking up and slapping cold bacon on a wasp sting! I literally went blind, went to my knees, cussed & prayed… All in about 10 seconds. And I like bacon, but that hurt BAD!!! It took about an hour and a couple of frosty beverages before I could move inside. P Yes, I got stung again.

New Week

Posted on August 06, 2012

     Made a few miles this past weekend, saw several different sets of goats, including my own in the daylight for a change.  I have a spring in my step as my set and Tyke’s set are the best wethers I have seen in the past month or so.  Schoovy is already trying to talk Tyke out of a couple.  We’ll find out how strong Tyk’es resolve is.  We’ll have most of them at the

     The posts for the wether pen are in.  I tried driving them in with the loader on a tractor.  It picked the tractor off the ground.  So, I paid the fence builders to bring their skid steer with a post driver on it to put them in the ground.  Maybe the best $100 that I’ve ever spent.  Not the funnest, but the best.      Speaking of money well spent, I called a moving company
