Thoughts from Kelln

Sore

Posted on February 23, 2017

I haven’t clipped that many hogs in one evening in a lot of years.  I will be sore tomorrow.  I think back to when I taught at Waynoka.  We normally had a 100+ hogs on feed.  I don’t want to go back to those kind of days.  Shattuck feeds a lot of animals now, but nothing like that crew at Waynoka fed.  Lots of hogs and calves, a few sheep and later on several goats

WTH Happened?

Posted on February 21, 2017

I got an obscure text this morning that said “Welcome?”  I didn’t know what it meant and I didn’t have time to worry about it.  Later, I got a call asking what happened to last night’s blog.  I do not know as it was there. But, as I got home tonight, I realize why Ron asked “welcome?”  Nothing but the title was there. I don’t know WTH happened to it.  I’m sure it was operator

Really random post

Posted on February 20, 2017

The use of Beautiful English… I called an old school friend and asked what was he doing. He replied that he was working on “Aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics, aluminum and steel under a constrained environment”. I was really impressed…. On further inquiry I learned that he was washing dishes with hot water… under his wife’s supervision.

Holidays

Posted on February 16, 2017

I just overheard Duke tell his mother that our family just missed a national holiday.  She said, “Kelln males don’t care about Valentine’s Day.”  He replied, “Not that holiday.  Today was the last day of quail season and Dad and I were too busy to go.”    I guess both sides of that conversation were right. Speaking of big days.  Okie State wrestles Penn State on Sunday–1 vs. 2.  I don’t care if you like

Looks like Dirty Rain is siring some sellable kids for J&J.  I have some Dirty Rain daughters that will kid later in the spring.  I’m looking forward to that.  I didn’t get many wether/buck kids out of him his first year but I loved the doe kids.  I never took a pic of Dirty Rain when he was younger as had an injury.  I sold 1/2 to J&J because I knew that they would get

Word of the Day

Posted on February 14, 2017

The word of the day comes in a purple box.  It is a crisp cookie coated in caramel, sprinkled with toasted coconut, and striped with dark chocolaty coating.  I know that some of you addicts knew what it was when you read purple box. Yes, the word of the day is Samoas.  I was tickled when Tammy found a Girl Scout that was selling cookies.  I only bought 8 boxes.  I’m wishing that I would

Train Wreck

Posted on February 13, 2017

How did these goat animals ever survive the ride on Noah’s Ark?  Those two goats were obviously low quality as those kind breed.  But the more we “improve” them, the less they raise live offspring. I am part of a group text of various goat breeders.  This group text basically consists of the various train wrecks that happen when dealing with doe goats.  Yesterday, had a breeder send a pic of doe that had ate

Headache

Posted on February 11, 2017

I have numerous reasons for a headache and none include a self-inflicted problem.  I simply don’t have time for that. First and foremost is our weather.  I broke ice on Thursday morning.  Then it got windy.  Friday afternoon, the pickup thermometer read 91 degrees ON FEB. 10!  And there is a chance for snow on Sunday.  WTH?  Make up your mind. I saw a sign that describes our weather. Mother Nature:     You CANNOT

Sr. Usage

Posted on February 10, 2017

I have a tendency to roll things around in my brain as I am driving down the road.   Yesterday, as I was in a hurry to get back to Shattuck, I was thinking about my substitute teacher.  I had told him that I would be back by 1 but now it looked more like 2:30.  Crap!  I was hoping that this wasn’t going to screw up his plans and then I was like, “Dang.

Tough

Posted on February 09, 2017

Tammy and I had to journey to Waynoka today.  It was tough.  We, along with hundreds of others, had the tough job of attending a funeral.  It was a ceremony for a great kid from a great family that was only months away from graduating OSU and then marrying his high-school sweetheart/best friend.  I had the honor of watching our friend Allan Poe handle the tough job of the eulogy.  He did great.  RIP Layne
