Finally

Posted on April 17, 2015

     We finally got a good rain here in paradise.  From 7 pm to 5 am this morning, we recieved 2.25 inches of rain.  That is the single biggest rain total that we have had here since the spring of 2012.  We’ll take it.  Of course, there was wind associated with it, which meant that I got to dig wet feed out of feeders this morning.  The joys and discomforts.

That time of year…again

Posted on April 16, 2015

     Every year, during the middle of the month of April, I get on here and praise the kids that compete in public speaking events.  There is not a better activity for kids to compete.  No matter what they do with their lives, public speaking will benefit them.  I like stock shows, but if I had to choose between my kids showing animals or giving speeches….well, let’s just say that I have always given

No!

Posted on April 14, 2015

    No, heck no, nope, however you want to put it,  don’t need any of this hillary for president. No good can come of that thing being in office.  I am all for a female to serve serve as the potus.  But that isn’t the right one.  Don’t need it, don’t want it.  Just a whole bunch of nopes when it comes to that deal being elected.  I just hope our nation is not

Sunday-Funday

Posted on April 13, 2015

    Sunday didn’t bring a day of rest, like it should be, but did bring a day of getting stuff done–at home.  Does moved.  Panels re-arranged.  Small square bales moved and easier to get to.  Babies tagged.  Crappy looking freeze damaged crops with mustard growing got mowed down as it has been too WINDY to spray.  Duke got to help me move goats and hay. Then he got to help the Dragon Lady with

I’ve got plenty to say, but time and internet signal is a limiting factor.  I’m wore out and mentally deranged but it was a way good weekend.  The sale wasn’t bad but the people were great.  The ribeye should have been illegal.  It’s nothing but rainbows and sunshine in this part of paradise.

April 8

Posted on April 09, 2015

    This day brings about numerous things for me.  First, I found myself at a livestock judging contest in Lawton, OK with a really great group of kids.  I hadn’t been to this contest since 2003.  But, like the timeless Whitesnake song, “Here I Go Again”.  We didn’t win, but did fair well.  Bree Taylor was 3rd overall and Kaylee Holt was 7th overall.  The team was 10th.  This means these girls had to

    Sold a couple in the banners & backdrops online sale.  Sold a couple doe kids at the house.  Add the April Fools day sale and coming up this weekend is the Banners and Backdrops sale in End, OK.  I have seen several sets of weathers that will sell there that are wicked good.  Seelke’s have a really fun pair of Rumour weathers.  There will also be a buck or two that people need

Apologies

Posted on April 06, 2015

     I apologize to all of you whom have been checking this site for the past week, looking for some quality info.  It has been a bit hectic.  We had an online sale last week on April Fool’s Day.  It went well.  Thanks to all of the buyers, bidders and lookers.  It takes all to make it work.  We are selling some more goats in the Banners & Backdrops online sale in a day

Spectator Sport

Posted on March 30, 2015

    I have come to the realization that the daily goings-on at the Kelln Livestock Kompound are kind of a spectator sport.  We tend to have audiences at all times.  Rightfully so.  Saturday afternoon, Duke and I decided to get the Iseki and rototiller out.  Duke recieved a few “safety” lessons and then he started tillling ground.  It was a beautiful day out, so I stood there in shorts, no shirt and watched.  Then

Random Wednesday

Posted on March 25, 2015

       I am rapidly approaching 44 years of age and I have finally figured out what I want to do with my life.  I aspire to be a “combat lightsaber specialist”.  Ironically, this was the same thing that I wanted to do when I was 7 years old.  After, I got older, I realized that they didn’t make a light saber like Darth Vader used.  So, I decided that I wanted to be
