Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on September 18, 2020

As I sit here and review my day, the hardest decision that I made on this day, was whether to pull that frozen mug out of the freezer.  I wanted a frozen mug, but that mug was supporting a bag of frozen garlic bread.  Consequences! On any given year, the hangover after OYE is the hardest.  That marathon can tire a young person with low miles.  Now, I am not young and I am an

That Message

Posted on September 14, 2020

I’m just going to start this with saying that 2020 has been a shit show and Duke has had it worse than most of the rest of us.  I’m just typing this one, so I can one day look back and remember my emotions.  I cannot and will not type my true feelings as our internet service sucks ass and may not last that long.  Here we go. No parent want’s that call.  Or in

Semen Sales

Posted on September 11, 2020

In the cattle industry, it is all about moving LARGE volumes of a given bull.  Sure, there are a few that they can jack the price up; but as a whole, there are only a select few that command a high $ per straw.  However, like an artist, some of these can go up in price.  But, for the most part, cattle semen straws are $30 to $50 per straw.  No matter what, you can

Acronyms!  Our world is loaded with them.  Especially since texting became popular. One of the most popular acronyms is KFC.  I’ve never understood why they needed to change their name from Kentucky Fried Chicken to KFC.  Something about wanting to distance themselves from using the word “Fried” in their name as being unhealthy.  IDK?   Seems to me that anybody worried about healthy eating probably isn’t going to any fast-food chain.  But now, the colonel’s

On this day, the most important internet site for goats will change it’s name. will now become  Sure the original address will still take you to the new site.  Every busy/ every body needs to keep things fresh.  I get it.  And obviously, there is more and more business done through that site that is NOT in Oklahoma. But still, there is a bit of a sentimental aspect, at least for me that

Paul Harvey

Posted on September 05, 2020

I have always been a Paul Harvey fan.  Back in the early 80s, when dad got off work, picked me up and we went to do chores (roughly 5:30 pm), Paul Harvey–the Rest of the Story would be on the radio.  I loved that stuff.  Still do.  Great voice that was used so well, and yet was clean and to the point.  You had to think while listening to it.  And, you usually learned something.

My Religion

Posted on September 04, 2020

By faith and by upbringing, my religion of choice is Catholic.  I only lack a few months on this planet until I have been here 5 decades.  And in those dang neart 50 years, I have not seen anything to change my mind.  I truly do not care if you approve or disapprove.  My parents raised three boys to love and serve others as well as GOD.  They did something right, as all three of

The coolest thing about these dumb donkey professional athletes, other than the fact that I (and judging from the ratings, I am not alone) refuse to watch any professional sports,  some networks have clued into this fact and are currently showing some bad ass nature documentary type stuff.  It’s awesome! It may not be Marty Stouffer “Wild America”  but it dang sure is fun to watch.  I’m not sure why we need a dude with

We live in the only county in Oklahoma that is designated as green level for covid.  No restrictions.  Mask optional.  Of course, one wise dude commented that it is two fold as to why Ellis County is green—-nobody wants to live here and it is so @&##ing dry that a virus can’t live here. Five weeks ago, I was getting bucks collected at REI.  I stopped by Perrydise to look at doe kids that would

I don’t normally spend much time on book face.  I check it while on the dumper of a morning.  (Seems appropriate) and then maybe again of an evening.   I check text messages on occasion.  Messenger–no alert, so only as I think about it.  It is possible to say that I am kind of socially distanced. Yet, in the last 24 hours, I have answered questions via messenger.  Responded to some book face stuff.  Actually
