Lights, Ramps & Push Ups

Posted on February 04, 2020

Why is it that trailer lights will work when hooked to this pickup but not another?  Brakes as well.  You would think that every trailer plug would be wired universally. Speaking of trailers, I can argue that the ramp is the worst livestock accessory…EVER.  First, it is always in the way when you need to load.  Two, they add weight to the back of a trailer, catch & hold wood chips which in turns makes

super bowl

Posted on February 03, 2020

Anybody that knows me, would quickly realize that I don’t give 2 squirts of goose crap as to who wins the super bowl.  However, I like to watch the commercials and the half time entertainment. My review.    I loved the commercial with Sam Elliott and the mustache move.  I do NOT like that he lost the “dance” off.  Shitty commercial.  I can’t even tell you what the ad was for but I know that

Random Quote & a Random Thought

Posted on January 29, 2020

“You don’t need a parachute to sky dive.  You only need a parachute if you would like to sky dive a second time.” –I don’t know who gets the credit.  I just liked the quote.     As I got out of a steaming, hot, epsom salt & melatonin infused bath on this snowy evening (yes, trying to actually sleep), I pulled on a random t-shirt from my closet.  It was a free shirt from

Over it

Posted on January 25, 2020

In 1983, my dad took me to Weldon Walser’s farm to buy a bred Duroc gilt.  This was my introduction to the stock show world.  I farrowed a litter. Kept a barrow.  Wilbur.  He got an infected cord when he was cut and I never got to show him.  Dad had Wilbur butchered, then later fed him to the family.  It bothered me but not for long.  At that point, I was over it when

Draft Picks

Posted on January 23, 2020

I’m no athletic genius but this nfl draft seems fairly easy to me.  If your team earned the first pick overall, why don’t they trade it for numerous lower picks and then draft a pile of big uglies–offensive & defensive lineman and maybe a tight end.  My reasoning–if they draft that elite QB and they don’t have a line, then that high priced new QB is going to get pummeled until they get him a

Random Tuesday

Posted on January 21, 2020

I couldn’t sleep this morning.  2:30 am and wide awake.  This led me to clicking on book face.  I saw some post about Kalahari red goats.  I’ve hear of em before.  Knew just a bit about their background and have seen a few in Texas.  I googled a couple of websites and read one with a lot of info about the Kalahari red goat.  The contact name on the site was Tollie Jordaan.  I hadn’t heard

Food Problems

Posted on January 20, 2020

For thousands of years, man subsisted on meat, bread, fruit and veggies.  Today, they want to make meat out of veggies, fruits and chemicals.  We need gluten free items on every menu.  Lactose intolerance is an issue.  GMO free, no hormones, no antibiotics, etc. You can find pasta made from wheat flour that is advertised as NON-GMO.  Triscuits are made from wheat. They are advertised as NON-GMO.  Seriously?   There is not any GMO wheat,

Anybody that knows me quickly realizes that my life is a book best written with musical notes.  I can read music but I can’t write it.  No matter what, when or where, I know a good tune as soon as I hear it.  Pop, rock, country,rap… whatever the genre, I like good tunes. My life calendar is made up of wicked tunes and when I hear those songs today, I am immediately taken back to

Disclaimer (I wrote this on Thursday, Jan. 16 but the ice affected the shitty internet, therefore it didn’t post until Friday evening the 17th)  Modern technology. I ran errands in Woodward and then went to a district stock show meeting.  It was starting to ice when I went into the meeting and it was a bit worse when I left.  But once I got off the highways, the paved side roads were wicked slick.  And
