Sale Over

Posted on April 11, 2016

      The Banners and Backdrops sale is done and in the books.  Personally, I would call it a success.  Duke and I got to Perry on Friday afternoon.  We had planned on being there earlier, but it just didn’t happen.  We got setup, unloaded, fed and watered then found a hotel.  Tyke, the Gambler, Duke and I made a dash over towards Morrison to the Ring Family compound.  Eric and his brother Michael

Thoughts on this day

Posted on April 07, 2016

Where to begin?  i know that I am behind on this blog.  My fault.  Let’s ramble. Happy birthday to a couple of cool chicks–Chesley Comstock(18) and Mindi Clark(??).  We look forward to continued great things from Chesley Comstock.  And as for DR. Mindi Clark–cheers to another birthday to my favorite daughter’s best ag teacher.  These two ladies always put me in a better mood (not that anybody could tell).  I love being around super successful

      The winds were back with a vengeance on Tuesday.  Unfortunately, a fire got started north of Woodward.  It is still going.  Supposedly, a couple of high lines whipping in the wind sparked and started the fire.  We’ve got several friends that live near where the fires started.  One of those families is Scott and Chesley Comstock and Scott’s parents.  Luckily, they are all fine.  I do know that there has been a

Buyers and Bidders

Posted on April 05, 2016

I enjoy watching the pshycology involved with the art of bidding during an auction.  There are lots of emotions that can happen in a short period of time during an auction.   Hoping for a miracle–This bidder has an addiction to owning a good animal, but they know that they aren’t going to get it done.  This is the type that bids at 8:05 am on an online auction and then spends the rest of

Posted on April 01, 2016

  Huge thank you to all that bid, bought, called, texted, acted interested or anything else involving the “Kind Of” April Fool’s Day online sale.  I am truly thankful for the interest.  I had more phone calls and texts regarding this sale than any that we have ever had.  The phone has had trouble staying charged.  Again, THANK YOU! 12 lots went to 9 different states.  Some were new buyers that I have talked to.

Hump Day

Posted on March 31, 2016

      Wednesday has been here and is on the way out.  Another dark night.  But that is to be expected.  Yesterday was a quick trip to Alva for the NWOSU FFA Interscholastics.  We only took a crew of 8th graders that wanted to compete in the Entomology contest.  These “buggers” did well for their first time as they picked up a 2nd place piece of hardware.  Then back to school.  For those of

     The wife asked me what I wanted for supper?  I asked, “What are my options?”  She replied, “Something with hamburger or fajitas.”  I said, “A hamburger steak would be fine. See what Duke wants.”         Later, I walked into the house to the aroma of canadian bacon, sausage, eggs, hashbrowns, pancakes, etc.  I mistakenly asked, “I guess Duke wanted Breakfast?”  Her reply, “No.  He didn’t care, but I wanted breakfast.”

New Week

Posted on March 28, 2016

    Monday is here and a new week begins.  Hopefully, I am a little more caught up this week than what I have been.  I did have a good weekend.  Made it to the Bixler Ranch bull sale on Saturday.  Saw some really good cattle and some even better people.  Dad bought a dang good bull.  Sunday was Easter at Shattuck.  The only family member not there was Kela and Tammy fired up the
