Thoughts from Kelln

Friday was perfect.  The only thing wrong with Friday was that we will not see another day as nice as that one the rest of this year. Saturday was good.  Had a few meatheads that wanted to make some money.  I paid them to clean out the kidding barn and the chicken barn.  If I would have taken the brunch that they ate, mid-afternoon snacks, multiple gatorades, etc.,  and “union” breaks into consideration, they probably

It Finally Happened

Posted on May 01, 2017

I have been limping along for months.  It hurts and I stay about half pissed at it.  I haven’t had time to do anything about it.  But, today, after dropping kids off downtown OKC, I went to Penn Square Mall to buy some clothes.  I then headed into the AT&T store.  By the grace of GOD, I caught a break in the crowd.  That and the workers laughed when they saw my ancient iPhone. I

In the words of Sheriff Buford T. Justice……Oohhppff!!    I really don’t know how to spell what the great one uttered in that movie, but I agree and I’ve had enough.  I’m ready for the State FFA Convention to be a thing of the past.  I’ve earned my keep this year but don’t know how much more of it I can do.  Sometimes, there are just too many irons in the fire. And it is

This post is not about some police dog patrol.  It actually has nothing to do with a dog at all.  It is about a goat.  One of the very few doe goats that I like. So, back in 2006, I traveled the state of Texas. I bought several groups of really good does. Harbour, Turner and Powell/Holman.  Great genetics to build from.  As I got them home, I vaccinated, wormed and ear tagged as they

I didn’t mind the first text that called me “Controversial”.   But the 2nd one from a different # made me go WTH?!  I have yet to make time to see where the 602 area code is, and I don’t know the person (unnamed texts bother me) but it made me think.  How am I the most “controversial person” in the goat industry?  And by the way, both texts were very positive. 1–My kids have

Here’s What I Know

Posted on April 24, 2017

This should be a short blog post, cuz I don’t know much.  Just ask the Dragon Lady.  But I do know that good goats will sell real good. I do know that anybody that wants to ACTUALLY work at helping sell goats (washing, clipping, photoing, etc) will make money.  I can clip, photo, etc.  I DON’T want nor like to do it.  It is money well spent to hire good help.  Anytime you readers need

I have  stuff to write, but I don’t.  So, I kind of have a big zero.  Which makes me think about most of my quick stop situations.  I don’t eat a bunch of chocolate.  I like a Reese’s and on occasion a Snickers.  A Reese’s Easter egg is wicked awesome.  Peanut M&Ms are good.  But one of my favorite candy bars is a Zero bar. I do not know what they are made from–zero something.

Good Friday!

Posted on April 15, 2017

I hope your Friday was gooder than mine.  Other than the wind, mine was a plenty Good Friday.  And once I stopped and thought about the reason that it is called Good Friday–the wind didn’t seem to matter and the day got real good. We all need to be thankful for sacrifices made by others for us.  Some were obviously bigger than others.   What else needs to be said?

E.M. Tiffany

Posted on April 12, 2017

There was a reason that E.M. Tiffany wrote the line “the joys and discomforts of agricultural life”.  We all have seen it.  Drought, blizzards, fire, disease and death are all part of the discomforts.  Birth, growth, sales and genetic match ups that worked are all part of the joys. The buck sale was an absolute joy.  Sure, it went well money wise.  But better yet was the # of people that found their way to

Doo Whop

Posted on April 10, 2017

I haven’t been able to find my way to the keyboard for several days.  It has been a sunrise to past sunset kind of week.  Good, yes.  But, nonetheless, it has been hectic. I did have a birthday during all of this activity.  Thanks to all that texted, facebooked or whatever else.  I apologize if I didn’t respond as my phone has not been able to keep up.  Thank you. I loved the birthday card
