Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on March 26, 2018

If anybody needed proof that I have actually had a bad hoof, they needed to be here tonight.  I sat here writing bill checks.  Regardless of insurance, these deductibles and extra costs are adding up.  The fact that I am paying for this is proof enough that it is hurt.  Over a quarter of a decade of paying health insurance on myself and I never used it till now.  You would think that it would

Yes, we are having a buck sale.  No it isn’t any later than last year.  We are going to clip and photo the next day or two.  Yes, I would have liked to have it done earlier but there were plenty of things on the schedule. No, I have not told them to put up a banner ad.  I will as soon as I know which date the sale is on.  Yes, there is a

Not Fun

My attitude has not been perfect since OYE completed it’s almost two week run.  I’m not done with OYE as I still have a trailer full of cattle equipment and like a lot of others, I have some kind of sinus issue that just won’t leave.  Throw that on top of this bad hoof and I’m not worth 2 squirts of owl crap.  But, I did manage to see every goat on the place on

What was that?

There was a different feeling in the air this morning.  Moisture.  A squall line moved through here last night.  Lot of wind and a bit of rain.  Only about a quarter of an inch but that is the most that we have seen since August.  We will take it.

We are home from OYE.  We got our asses kicked.  I did have some positive experiences at this OYE but I am glad that it is over.  This bad hoof of mine caused me lots of problems.  I’m sick of a crutch and a knee scooter.  I am glad to be home. Now, I have to prepare for March 17.  St. Patrick’s Day is kind of a Kelln national holiday anyways, but this year it

U Missed It

With this hoof injury, I have been accumulating tools to help me motivate around this piece of paradise.  First, and foremost, the gator is of utmost importance.  I have also found that feeding does while on a crutch is not all bad.  I haven’t had to use it as a weapon of self defense, but they already know to respect the crutch. Tammy has found me three different knee scooters.  The first one looked lightweight

My mind is rolling with numerous different political crap.  I’m very much for the right to bear arms.  You cannot give me one reason that we should not be allowed to own guns.  I am obviously very much in favor of free speech.  However, I do believe that our current media has just about ruined this right.  And I dang sure don’t think that EVERY award show is a place for actors or athletes to

The wind machine has been cranked up here in paradise.  It is bad enough that it hasn’t rained since last August but this wind!    It was right at a year ago when the wind was howling here and then there was fire. I pray that does not repeat this year. I need to be thinking about planting the garden.  We got hailed out last year.  I’m not real fired about ordering any seed for

It is a fact that I am not much of a sleeper.  But every now and then, I have to shut down.  Duke and I processed babies, moved does and kids out of the kidding barn, put out hay for goats and cows and picked up a load of feed.  Productive morning. I limped inside and ate some little smokies.  Turned the tube on and hey “The Replacements” is on.  I’ve only seen it 87

Survived but….

Stock shows that last over a week are rough on the mind, body and soul.  This one was worse than normal.  Yes, I broke a toe in two a couple of weeks ago.  I was doing pretty good on it until Tuesday afternoon.  And then, HOLY $h!t that hurts.  The rest of my left foot decided to give up the fight.  Now, as a result of over-compensating for my toe, the ball of my foot
