Thoughts from Kelln

Random, Random, stuff, stuff

If you can, look up Mike Rowe’s posts on Facebook.  Yes,  that is the Dirty Jobs guy.  I like following this guy.  He gets it.  His latest post about farmers is good.  Wicked Good!  The U.S. farmer provides the most abundant, safest and healthiest food supply that the world has ever seen and does it on less land and with more restrictions and requirements.  He brings up the point that EVERYTHING on the news affects

What the ….?

Posted on October 09, 2017

This blog has been online for six + years.  There are over 1200 posts on here.  It works out to about 4 posts per week.  Some weeks have been more prolific than others (in all things, not just dispensing crap). I often think about pulling the plug on this deal as it isn’t easy to come up with stuff to write about.  By the time you delete some content, keep it clean and yeah, that

Been a week

Posted on October 07, 2017

I hadn’t been near the keyboard for over a week.  Been at Tulsa for part of that week.  Getting ready to go back again.  We didn’t show much stock this time.  In Shattuck, with fast-pitch softball and football, these kids have enough going on this time of year.  We will be ready to show later. Speaking of softball, Shattuck is playing in the state finals this afternoon.  They are facing off against Arnett.  Two towns,

In groups of 3

Posted on September 29, 2017

For years, I have heard that death comes in groups of 3.  Maybe this only works for small-town newspapers.  I don’t know.  And I don’t know what to expect around here.  Why? Well, we lost K9 last week and I’ve been expecting another one to be done.  But not the one that I found dead under the red barn.  B22, the last Harley daughter, was dead this evening.  She had raised some good ones.  Banner

nf what?

I haven’t been a big fan of the nfl since Earl Campbell quit playing for the Houston Oilers.  I have always enjoyed the highlights, kept tabs of the former Okie State players and I watched the super bowl commercials.  I don’t own any nfl jerseys, tshirts, caps or other paraphernalia that they sell.  I have not been a big supporter–I just really didn’t care.  Same with the nba.  Simply put, I would rather watch college

The name of the game in the show goat industry is and always has been bucks.  If you have a bonafide producer of a buck, then you’re going to have fun.  Plus, you need a lot of bucks to gather those quality of bucks. In 2010, we had built a herd founded on Turner, Harbour, Powell/Holman and Kelly females.  I had used the Harley buck from Kelly and the X Factor buck from Powell/Holman to

Bucks

Posted on September 22, 2017

Yes, we are offering some bucks for lease in an online sale on Monday, Sept. 25.  Yes, we may offer more at later dates but nothing set at this time. Speaking of bucks, I just found out that one of the old ones is still siring winners.  Rainman sired the res. grand wether at the Kansas State Fair.  That old fart has established a resume that will stack up with the best of them. I

People, People, People!

Think of Chill Wills character in McLintock!     “Drago”  would gather the people round as he yelled “People, People, People.”  I love that movie.  I mean I LOVE that movie!  Gets me in a good mood. Well, people, I am here to tell you that I am a little bit wound up.  We just got home from the 1st annual Shattuck FFA barnyard olympics.  HOLY JEEMINY, son-of-a that deal was fun.  I’ll be honest.

Oh well

I knew that the days were numbered.  Saturday, it became apparent that we were talking single digit days.  The old K9 doe has been fading fast.  And now, it is done. She was just a tick over 10 years old.  She had a good run.  She may not have been the best but she was better than most.  And she wasn’t a fighter or a destroyer of panels.  Now, you better have your A game

Good Day!

On Wednesday after school, I made a quick trip to OKC to drop off state fair entries.  Plant displays, horticulture entries, ag mechanics projects, FFA news boards and photography entries.  They had to be there by 7 pm.  I was done unloading about 6:45 pm.  I then grabbed a burger and headed home. Today, I left Shattuck at 6 am in one suburban while Daryle Greer drove another suburban headed back to OKC for the
