Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on November 10, 2016

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

I want

Posted on November 01, 2016

I want to live in a place that the wind does not blow 350 days out of the year.  This is getting old….real old!  I love the movie Animal House.  I always enjoy the line when Dean Wormer tells Flounder, as he is kicking him out of college, “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.”  Likewise, Hot, Dry and Windy is no way to make it an agricultural setting–crops or livestock.

Hitting submit the other night has turned in to an almost cathartic moment. Boom!  It’s done and out there.  I even had the Dragon Lady proofread it for me (and she hates the blog).  Nobody should have been offended.  If offended, that’s your problem.  I/We will help people, but it is now on our terms.  I shoud have done this years ago.  I will reminisce on occassion about those Sunday afternoons when there were piles

Survey says…

Posted on October 28, 2016

Some of you in my age demographic or older will remember Richard Dawson on the gameshow Family Feud.  He would lean next to the contestant (closer if it was a hot female) as they answered the question.  Then there would be a smarmy joke or two and then he would turn to the big board and say “Survey says..”. After serving an in depth tour of duty with a John Deere dealership, I have become

Small Victories

Posted on October 26, 2016

Made it home from the State FFA Opening Ceremonies contest.  No, we didn’t win.  But I’m not mad.  Not happy, but not mad, either.  These 6 sophomore kids were not a match set.  One girl really wanted to participate in this event. (She made the whole deal happen).  One boy didn’t have a choice (Duke).  One boy said he would do it as long as he didn’t miss football practice (he did and he did).

Donkey Kicked!!

Posted on October 24, 2016

Yes, I have been away from the keyboard for several days.  Yes, I have had way TOO many irons in the fire lately, but I can see the end in a week or two.  Yes, we made it home from KC. My parents, yes my Mom and my Dad, took a set of Shattuck FFA officers to Indianapolis to the National FFA Convention this past week.  These girls went to pick up a little chapter
