Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on January 06, 2019

I do like to eat.  Especially at places that I don’t get to go to very often.  We hit our annual stops at several restaurants in the Phoenix area. La Piñata–consistently very good Mexican food. My Mothers–turkey pot pie, fresh bread, way full when done. Pappadeaux’s–I think all of the stock show was at Pappadeaux’s on Sunday evening. The Duce–brisket sliders and cold beverages.  We watched the Notre Dame game while there.  That didn’t go

Part 2

The goat show at Phoenix was good, really good.  The top 3 or 4 in about every class were excellent goats.  I had never seen this judge line up a show but I would like to show to him again.  Consistent.  When he got to class 9, that was the point when he could define exactly what type of goat was his type.  Class 9 was very tough.  There were at least 5 wethers in

As I start to type this, I realize that I have a typo in the title.  People, that key was stuck.  A week of inactivity combined with honey will do this to a mac keyboard. Anyways, we have made it back to paradise from Phoenix.  Excellent trip, wicked drive home.  I’ve got lots of thoughts to write about:  eating, well behaved, quality of the show, people, traveling and a whole bunch of other stuff. Just

The food and snacks has been really good the past few days.  Too good.  I’m pretty sure that I am fatter. I promise you that I have does fatter than I normally do.  And they are a bunch of welfare acting morons.  They constantly have a round bale of cover crop mix (cowpeas, teff grass, german millet, hay grazer, collard greens, okra, crabgrass)  Very good hay.  I also feed them a 14% protein pellet every

Saturday was the Dragon Lady’s birthday.  She went to OKC to do some shopping and pick Kela up at the airport.  She was supposed to land at 2:30 pm.  But plans changed.  American Airlines had overbooked and Kela got bumped.  The next flight was to land at OKC after midnight and she was not guaranteed a seat on that flight. So, she turned down their free flights (RUSM? Do you really think that I am

First day of Christmas break!  Nope.  We had school till noon.  Then I met up with a herd of kids and worked sheep and goats.  Kelly clipped wether goats, 13 toothed sheep, wormed and trimmed hooves on all.  Scales are free, so let’s catch a weight on all. Then home to do chores, then back to Shattuck to make wurst.  Three generations working together.  The beef was wicked high quality, the pork was scary good

Lead Singer

Posted on December 21, 2018

Van Halen has always been a favorite band of mine.  I got to see Van Hagar live but not Van Halen.  I liked both versions.  I also liked the original lead singer when he was with Van Halen and some of his solo stuff after Van Halen.  One of his solo hits was a simple little ditty that just happened to be all acoustic.  It was a song called “Damn Good!” Some could argue that

Lotta Stuff

I’ve got a little knowledge with a lot of time to dispense it.   Wait?  What?  Maybe that was supposed to say “a lot of knowledge with little time.”   Actually, I have just been kind of stupefied for the past day or so.  The Ok Youth Expo started a scholarship program years ago.  Very good scholarships as well as an academic all state program.  Kela was picked for a big scholarship and the all

Does somebody need a hug?

The title says it all. Have a good one.  A better tomorrow.  And here’s to hoping that I am the only one with a sticky I on the keyboard.  (Trust me, Apple Macs never considered the drop of honey on a keyboard like the problem that we got going on, although it may be barbecue sauce, who knows?).  Since we know that there is an issue, we proofread.  We being Me or I.

I don’t and have not used drugs.  I haven’t even had an aspirin in over a decade.  I’ve never smoked weed.  I understand how people can get hooked on a substance.  I even know people that are addicted to buying goats online.  I get it.  But, somehow, I have managed to avoid most addictions. But, this Christmas Crack stuff…….Oh, jeeminy……I don’t know.  I need to start buying bigger waist sizes.   Some kind of puffed
