Thoughts from Kelln

Another county stock show is in the books.  I do not enjoy local or county stock shows.  Some get excited about them.  Not me.  I see them as a scrimmage.  They really don’t count for much but you can get the stock out and do a run through.  In all honesty, the only people that care about a county stock show is beginning level showmen and grandparents. I did survive.  It was butt-ass cold for

Let’s go to Vegas!

I have hardly ever won a drawing.  I did win a red 5 gallon bucket at an NRA event several years back.  However, the person to my left, the person to my right and the person across the table from me all won a gun.  So, I cherish that red 5 gallon bucket with a screw on lid. Lately, my luck has changed.  Monday, Feb. 4, I bought a $100 raffle ticket for the football

I liked that dude

I got a call right after lunch from a goat legend.  Hadn’t talked to him in several months.  He wanted to know if I had heard any news about Joe Ed Helms.  My mind went “Shit!”  My mouth probably did as well.  IDK and don’t care what came out of my mouth at that point.  I knew that it was probably true.  I just didn’t want it to be.  I always liked that dude.  Joe

I remember

Posted on February 14, 2019

No, really, I do remember hearing old people say “Life gets faster as you get older.”  I also remember thinking, “What? They are old.” And now—–JEEEEMINY CHRISTMAS, this is all moving SOOOOOOOOO fast!  I remember turning 21 like it was yesterday.  Now, I’m not sure how old I am without thinking about it. Dude(s), I can remember the good critters that I showed to so-and-so but that was actually 15 years ago. I recently used

I really haven’t had nor do I have the time to post on here, but I am clearing my head, getting my eyes squared right and just not thinking.  I’ve been on that FAET website and my head is numb.  This website doesn’t require much thought, so let’s have at it. While dealing with these FFA type record books, a cool tune came on.  It was the theme song from Eddie and the Cruisers.  That

I do not remember the exact year.  But I do know that it was in the mid to late 80s.  I remember looking at a magazine and there was color pictures.  OOOHHHH yeah!   It wasn’t playboy or some other porn.  It was better!  It was the two page spread of Payton Scott’s club calves.  Oh man!  That deal was fun to look at. I remember the first time that I went through Rising Star,

Technology just keeps going forward.  Too fast….yes, at times.  Maybe, I’m old but I am also right.  I still don’t want a text conversation with one or both sides being upset.  If there is a confrontation, I want it face to face.  I can text, I just don’t have to like it. Likewise, in the stock show world, technology and information keeps pushing us forward.  Personally, I think that there is an overload of info

Huge Divide

It is a known fact that I don’t spend a lot of time asleep.  Three to five hours a night is good for me.  Until I get tired and then, once a month, I will crash from 9 pm to 4 am.  It is also a known fact that I don’t spend a lot of time watching the news.  Why?  I don’t care what the traffic is like in OKC.  The weather normally doesn’t apply

The weather people are a whole lot like goat reproductive technicians.  Their success rate isn’t always very good BUT, they still get paid.  Right or Wrong.  We ended up in an ice hole around here.  And they weren’t calling for it.  At least the wind wasn’t blowing. I lose track if this is a goat website, ag teacher blog, NW OK weather report, movie/music critic or foodie site.  In the end, it really doesn’t matter.

Yes.  Without a doubt,  the most common question that I get is : “How much longer are you teaching?”  I can honestly answer–at least until May.  After that, I do not know.  There are parts of me that feel like going the distance.  But, there are also parts that are itching.  I planned on a year, did a 2nd one, had to do a 3rd year and now finishing 5.  IDK and don’t have time
