Movie Review

Posted on October 05, 2019

While holed up in the Hampton Inn at Tulsa, I flipped through almost 500 directTv channels until I found something that I wanted to watch.  It was 3:10AM and Bohemian Rhapsody had been playing for a bit. I watched it.  I liked it. I don’t agree with the name of the movie, it should have just been called the Freddie Mercury story, but the movie was very good.  I loved the behind the scenes of

Tulsa survivor

Posted on October 04, 2019

Kind of.    My bad hoof flared up again.  Don’t know what caused it but it hurt like holy hell!  A stock show is not a good place to have to limp–for animals or humans.  The doctors wouldn’t prescribe any steroid pills over the phone.  But, it is a good thing that I was in the sheep barn.  You can always find drugs in that barn.  (probably true for any barn at this point) I

Only one!

I only own one gun.  And on occasion I need to use it.  It is just a “home” defense kind of deal that I use to get rid of varmints.  Just some Winchester pump action 12 gauge.  It’s actually scarier looking than the AR-15 deals that the media likes to pontificate about the evils thereof. Today, I sheared and clipped legs….on sheep getting ready to go to Tulsa.  I then scurried over towards Woodward and

I survived another week of teaching.  We got word this morning that Shattuck FFA had the grand champion ag mechanics project at the Tulsa State Fair.  This evening I turned does in with bucks.  I tagged baby calves.  Tammy and I checked mini-herfs.  She didn’t want to cook and I didn’t want to clean up so…..Charlie’s it was. Our neighbors, Larry & Marilyn Nickeson were already there.  So, we shared a table and solved all

Not that OLD!!

We hauled kids to COLT conference this week.  Chapter Officer Leadership Training was held in Enid, OK on the 24th.  Officers are in official dress and the advisors need to be dressed up as well.  Coat, tie, slacks and my favorite smooth-quill ostrich dress boots for my part.  Pics have to be taken.  I have always let the kids choose where we eat for lunch. I have always felt like we are dressed to the

Sunday found me in OKC.  Monday in Tulsa.  Tuesday in Enid.  I was a bit road weary.  A  buddy of mine had mentioned watching the PBS documentary about Country Music.  Tuesday night, at midnight, I saw that episode 7 of 8 was airing.  I stayed up till 2:30am to watch it.  It was so, so good.  I like Dolly. Tonight, I finished pulling CIDRs and doing the day2day chores so that I could watch this

Not stupid…just ignorant

Posted on September 24, 2019

We are surrounded by stupid people.  Stupid is all around.  And stupid people reproduce.  Always.  However, some really aren’t stupid, they are just ignorant.  I don’t like ellen.  Never have.  I don’t find her funny.  I don’t care for her politics.  In reality, I don’t pay her much mind.  But, I have never thought of her as stupid.  She obviously is not stupid.  ellen is smart and has built a brand and empire around her.

If you want a measure of how old your body is feeling, do what I did tonight.  I told the hay baler to get his SMALL square baler out of the barn.  I had a couple of small acreage plots that had a nice cover crop mix on it–German millet, BMR hay grazer, mung beans, red ripper cow peas and some crab grass.  I did tell him when that bale counter got to 200 to

We all get caught up in who won what.  It matters, but it doesn’t always matter.  But that is for a different time and place.  However, some things make you stop and think. I grew up in a place that has amassed a pile of football wins and state championships. They have also gathered several softball titles in recent years.  Go back to the 80’s and Shattuck won a bunch of choir and band titles.

You have to have it?  You don’t want to write the check but you know you need it.   It’s the law to have it for a vehicle collision.  There are some effed up laws that deal with health insurance.  Life insurance?  Who? Me? Judging from tv commercials, either these insurance companies are making a crap-pile of cash OR it is a very competitive market-place and hyper-productive advertising is a needed must.  Think about it.
