Thoughts from Kelln

Time

Posted on February 13, 2019

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

Elite Salesman

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,

Feels good sales

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

Posted on February 08, 2019

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

Random, random, random

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.

Busy?!?

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

Random cool kind of

Posted on January 28, 2019

It is cool getting texts to line me out about these blogs.  Actually, it is amazing how many different states can be represented and how many people actually read this crap!!  There are some readers that I think have an alert when I hit the “publish” button.  Others are like a morning ritual, they hit me up about the same time of a morning.  No matter, it’s all cool.  Maybe, I ought to make a

Coolest ever

Posted on January 25, 2019

The Dragon Lady and I came walking into our homestead and Duke was home alone, watching a movie, in the dark.  Sometimes, when you walk in on an 18 year old male watching movies, you cringe.  But not on this night.  The favorite son was watching maybe the coolest movie ever made. I did not say the best (it could be), but people, we are talking about the cooooolest movie ever made. I had help

OYE 2007

Posted on January 22, 2019

For me, there were a lot of things memorable about that OK Youth Expo.  Not all of them are happy memories. Kela had the res. div. 1 wether and the champ div. 3 wether.  The was the first year of Pfeiffer goats being shown.  Fairvew had 5 class winners with goats from their first sale.  Including Kela’s pair. That was also the year that the fairgrounds were under construction, so that had to change the

Food? Really?

Posted on January 21, 2019

I would venture to say that most show goat people have not eaten goat meat.  A lot of people see them as pets, objects, show stock but not food.  Here, in the U.S. and in a lot of Europe, we don’t eat much goat meat.  But as we get more and more people from Asia, central & south America and Africa, goat will become more common.  It is the most eaten meat in the world.
