Thoughts from Kelln

Tolerance, Racism, Bullying, etc…

Posted on November 28, 2018

I watched a tv program on this fine evening that covered all of the aforementioned topics plus some.  It was just an hour long program but it covered hot button topics of current times.  This show identified issues of racism, bullying, tolerance of others and finding a place for each and every soul.  The current year is 2018 but this tv show was made in 1964. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Yes, it is one of

Break’s over

Posted on November 26, 2018

I had been needing a break for a few days.  I kind of got one.  Wednesday was hooked up solid. Thursday was all Thanksgiving.  But, I never got in a vehicle. Friday, hooked up all day long on random stuff.  I wasn’t even sure what to do with a day that I did not have to be somewhere.  So, I took care of stuff at home and made a couple of project visits.  And I

And then…..tacos?!

I hope that all of you people had as good of a Thanksgiving Day as what I did.  I smoked 2 turkeys per request from the Kelln females.  I forgot to check my stash of spices and rubs.  I was out of what I usually use on turkey. So, I piled into the kitchen and made my own rub.  When, I thought that it was close, I had Duke taste it.  Official taste test. I

Words to Write

Hunh?!   I’m not sure where to even start tonight. Last night, I logged on to the Socially Transmitted Disease known as Facebook.  The first post that popped up was a testemonial from a dude that I know.  It was an anniversary date that he had given up alcohol and tobacco.  He wasn’t afraid to address the struggles that he still faces.  It took some balls to write it and an even bigger sack to

I’m dealing with some issues.  I couldn’t remember a password the other day.  It turns out, I was making the same typo over and over.  I remembered right.  I just didn’t type it right. Then, I tried to use my password to get into this dang deal, this KELLN website.  No typos!  Dudes, there are so many logins, passwords and key codes to remember, and some need 6 figures, some 8, some caps, some lower

Good Stuff Saturday

Posted on November 18, 2018

We are going to start with agriculture and sports and then end with agriculture and sports.  But, not necessarily in that order.  Get it?  Me either. I actually had nothing scheduled for Shattuck FFA stuff on this weekend.  Thank goodness.  Needed a break.  That lasted until noonish when I got a text about a pig breathing hard.  I went to the ag farm and doctored a pig.  Dang, draxxin is expensive!  I’ve been working harder

Good Day

Posted on November 15, 2018

I made a trip to pickup a couple of online barrow purchases.  Hopefully, this is the last of the hog buying.  I haven’t had to buy very many but it feels good to be done. We also got all of our goat, sheep & steer OYE nominations done, mailed and typed into the computer (twice).  As an ag teacher, nominations and entries are quite possibly the biggest pain in the ass of the job.  I

Winter has arrived.  Little bit of ice followed by several inches of snow and throw some wind in to boot.  This morning, the thermometer read 12.  It’s the first of half of November.  WTH?  Lots of various people making statements that it is going to be a long winter. Make sure critters get a good drink of water.  They won’t eat if they don’t drink.   You know that a person is an icon when

Saturday was one windy, miserable son-of-a-gun outside.  I needed a day to get stuff done, but not much happened.  So, I watched the bedlam game.  It should have been a blowout, but ou doesn’t have a defense and Okie State does have an offense.  Which resulted in a close game. The kicker isn’t good, the qb missed several throws including the most important one and at least Gundy went for the win.  Oh well.  Then

I don’t spend as much time with goat peeps as I used to.  And that is probably a good thing.  But I dang sure enjoy it when I get to have a day with some great ones. Sure.  We had school today but I didn’t.  When I hired on to this gig, I made it clear that there would be times that I couldn’t be there.  No problem.  Plus, I put in my weekends and
