Thoughts from Kelln

Been there and back.  Left Phoenix on Tuesday morning to head home.  On the couch by 10 pm on Tuesday evening.  No, I did not make it midnight. Happy New Year!!

Wicked Awesome

Posted on December 26, 2019

I hope that all of you have had an enjoyable Christmas season.  Mine has been wicked awesome.  The favorite daughter flew in last Saturday.  We had an excellent meal and time at Tammy’s parents house on the 23rd.  The 24th brought an excellent Christmas eve mass followed by the Kelln family Christmas Eve dinner and gathering. Then a big family breakfast/brunch on Christmas Day.  All in all, it was wicked awesome. Tammy and I got

Good name

Posted on December 21, 2019

The most common question in the show goat industry is: “Where is the next 900?” We still throw 900 around on a regular basis.  Triple bred 900, 900 line, goes back to 900, whatever.  He is one of, if not the most influential buck in the show goat world. In reality, it has been almost 15 years since 900 started changing the show goat industry. Much in the same way that Sugar Ray dominated the

Warranties & Guarantees

Posted on December 19, 2019

What kind of warranty goes with this product? What kind of guarantee is there?   This fine day found me answering texts and phone calls regarding warranties & guarantees on goats.   Excellent topic as most warranties & guarantees in the goat business are implied.  Most livestock people follow a time-honored warranty regarding their critters.  BUT, as non-livestock people enter the business, they might think differently. Communication between buyer and seller will almost always help

Happy Thoughts

Posted on December 18, 2019

I have been in a mood where I didn’t have much good to say.  So, I stayed quiet.  Haven’t been near this keyboard in about a week.  It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, I just don’t want to always seem negative. Generally speaking, I am the most positive, upbeat, optimistic person that you will ever meet. Proof of the optimism– I am a tried & true Okie State athletics fan.  There is

Yes, I mentioned Star Wars in a previous post.  Yes, there is another Star Wars movie that will be released in a week or so.  Yes, social media is blowing up over “baby Yoda” memes from the Disney+ streaming series “The Mandalorian”.  Whether you like it or not, the force is all around all of us. All of this brings up the question…who is the greatest Star Wars character of all time? As Tammy and

Movies & Show Ring

Posted on December 09, 2019

It is no secret that I am a fan of the Star Wars tales and the Lord of the Rings stories .  Both have the same plot of good versus evil with an unseen power that binds it all together.  Race, religion, creed, sex, whatever…doesn’t seem to matter in these stories.  Star Wars is one of the richest movie franchises of all time.  The J.R.R. Tolkien novels/movies have proven to be highly successful as well.

Top Duets

Posted on December 05, 2019

Who doesn’t love a good power duet?  A couple of wicked artists join forces and create a special song.  Here’s some of my favorites. Ozzy & Lita, Tom Petty & Stevie Nicks, George & Tammy, Kenny Chesney & Jimmy Buffett all made some classic duets. 13.–“Endless Love”–Diana Ross & Lionel Richie A couple of heavyweights that made a classic tune when they put their voices together. 12.–“Under Pressure”–Queen & David Bowie Catchy song that Vanilla

While going off on poor spellers on social media last night, I about caused myself to have a train wreck.  I was participating in the bid off in an online auction.  I would write a paragraph or two then click over and check my bids.  This continued for a little bit.  Except I clicked over to check bids and somebody had outbid me and there was less than a minute left.  By the time I

Christmas Gifts

Posted on December 03, 2019

I recently saw one of those meme deals that read “Santa has seen what you posted on social media this year and you are getting a dictionary.” So, so true. This past week, I refrained from commenting on a whole pile of book face posts regarding the Bedlam game. There were SO many posts with spelling errors.  It drove me nuts.  But, I “new” if I commented that there would be retaliation about “their” or
