Thoughts from Kelln

Another Day

Posted on November 21, 2016

Mike Rowe from the tv show Dirty Jobs needed to be filming 3 miles south of Fargo on this fine evening.  I just finished trimming hooves on 13 four to seven month old buck prospects. Dude, they have jizzed on their front legs, their chins, each other and now on my pant legs as I was trimming hooves.  It takes a really good soap to get that stuff off of your hands.  Even though this

It was 87 degrees just 48 hrs ago. Now it is nearing freezing and the wind is howling like an old-time movie, gut-shot Comanche.  (If I offended anybody with that last statement, click to a different website.)  And it is still dry here in paradise.  Huhnh!  At least it is finally getting cold enough to stop these flies.  There are always some positives.  At least that is what I have been told.   I clicked

The Dumbest

In the show goat industry, this title would belong to me.  There isn’t a close second.  Without bragging, this title is mine.   I had some windshield time today.  No XM radio, so this left me to the thoughts in my head.  Then, I got home and I started to go through 2016 income/expense info for taxes.  (trying to be early for a change).  Then, I started going through breeding records for the past several

It should have been a Monday.  It felt like a Monday.  The day started early and then it went downhill from there.  First and foremost, I am not happy with my wife’s son.  For numerous reasons.  But, that will work itself out.  He’s not happy that he doesn’t have a fun anymore and hunting season is on hiatus until we are happy with him.   At one point today, the plasmacam, the chop saw and

I have known that we were caught in a circle of Not Getting Much Rain area for quite some time now.  After driving to San Angelo this weekend, I now realize that we are in a very isolated area of no rain.  Man, the dryland cotton looks wicked good. Cecil Book told me that they have had 15″ of rain since August 1.  That is almost a years worth in 3 months!   The 1/4″

I enjoyed the Disney movie Frozen.  Excellent movie, but not the greatest Disney movie of all time.  That title goes to the Lion King.  Not only is the Lion King the best animated movie of all time, that flick is also in the Kelln top 10 of all time.  Even if you want to argue with me, you can’t.  That movie was and forever shall be one of the all time greats.   Speaking of

I was at the polls before 7 am. And I wasn’t first in line.  There was a line, in Fargo, OK to vote.  I love it. Well, I didn’t see these results coming.  I didn’t have much faith in the east or west coasts regarding the presidential election.  For that matter, I just didn’t have a lot of faith in the system itself.  But, we are getting a new POTUS.  He may not be ideal,

Vote 4 President!

I like to follow sports.  I enjoy the storylines.  Although, the Dragon Lady and I follow the St. Louis Cardinals, it was hard to not cheer for the Cubs to win the world series.  I’m glad that their curse is broken.   When Law & Order:SVU gets done at 5 am, I flip the channel to 143 and watch Mike & Mike in the Morning.  According to this bastion of valid information, the Cubs parade

I never thought that I would miss the usual tv commercials.  You know Flo from progressive, the Geico lizard, Farmers insurance, all of Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning various ads and the mutliple different ads for erectile dysfunction.  But, I would rather watch those commercials than these hillary, Trump and all of these state question ads.  Election season has to be profitable for tv, radio and magazine ad sales.   Lots of dollars spent on

Another Hectic Day

Posted on November 03, 2016

I’m ready for a break.  But today was not that day.  I made some rounds after school, picked up pig feed and then headed out to sort through a 150+ Hereford heifers.  It was actually a great evening to sort cattle.  NO wind.  Then, home to do chores. Now, I have the tube on, watching the world series.   There was a school assemby today. I have a history of not attending most of these
