Thoughts from Kelln

Got some!  Rain that is.  .5″ on Wednesday, then .4″ Friday morning and then a full inch during Friday night to Saturday morning.  What does that mean? We’ve got a chance to make some hay.  Tammy will have some lawn mowing to do.  There are feed troughs to be cleaned out.  And…. Rule of thumb for trimming hooves on goats.  Wait for a rain.  This one worked out real well.  That first rain on Wednesday

WTH?   What’s that?  That is a family name for a somewhat common insect.  Lamp in the name should give it away.  Firefly, lightning bug or glowworm.  These creatures are of the family Lampyridae.  And actually, they are NOT a fly (order diptera),  nor are they a bug (order hemiptera), and they for sure aren’t a worm.   Lightning bugs or fireflies are part of the order coleoptera–a beetle. I graduated college and did not

Major League

Posted on June 20, 2018

We haven’t gone fishing yet, but we did load up and go see us some major league baseball.  Tammy, Duke and I loaded up and drove like hades to get to St. Louis for Sunday nights game.  I had a bit of an issue getting tickets.  Sure, I knew that I could deal with some scalpers and get some tickets, but I knew that we weren’t going to have time for that crap.  Online tickets

Just Stuff

Posted on June 17, 2018

I want to go fishing.  But it is too windy.  I need these hay crops to grow, but it is too dry and the wind is making it worse.  I need to have a barn roof repaired, but it is too windy.  I need the grass to grow, but it is too dry and too windy.  I need to see some major league stuff…. It is 9 hours to Denver, about 5-8 hours to DFW

Per Request

Had an interesting text that pointed out that The Chive had a post naming 1989 as the best year ever for movies.  This piqued my interest as 1989 is right in my wheelhouse.  That year brought high school graduation and the start of a college career at the great cow college of Oklahoma State University.  That is the year that Garth Brooks blew up on the scene.  Good year. I immediately set out to prove

Well Written

“The sea was angry that day, my friends–like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli.” I don’t watch it often, but I still thoroughly enjoy an episode of Seinfeld.  Probably the best written tv show of all time.  Just a mere mention of a line or two will illicit a response from anybody that ever saw a given episode of that tv program.  For instance, “Soup Nazi” took on a life

I didn’t have to deliver does to San Angelo but Friday did find me making a mad dash to San Angelo to swap some stuff.  The Friday Night Fever was a bit crowded. HUGE crowd.  And then they started the auction.  Jeeminy–there were a lot of people there to buy a goat, that night, no matter what.  Several breeders had sets of goats that averaged $5-7K and they were well below sale average.  72 lots

I like good music.  Period.  Classical, rock, pop, country, rap, I do not care as long as it is good.  I just saw on facebook that there was some kind of country music award show, so I found it on CMT. I’m not anti-new country music.  It’s just that most of this crap ain’t country.  Kelly Clarkson is a talented performer.  But country?  She was singing “American Woman” which is a classic kick ass ROCK

Thank you to all of the buyers and bidders.  We are pleased with the sale.  And I learned several things from this sale. –If you are going to offer open does, does with kids, bred does and this many lots, then you better clear your calendar on sale day and have help to answer text questions. –They are going west to California and east to West Viriginia. –If I wanted to screw people in this

Little Things

Posted on June 05, 2018

It doesn’t matter what you are doing in life, it is the little things that add up. –Tonight, as I strolled through these does, I caught myself having thoughts like: “If she doesn’t bring much….” “I should keep her.” And then, they start acting like female goats.   My attitude went sour in a hurry. Pick a four letter word. No, not that one.  A better one.   Speaking of 4 letter words–no, this isn’t
