Technical Difficulties

Posted on August 20, 2015

        Please bear with us as we make changes to this lovely website.  There is really only one holdup on getting all of this done, and it is me.  Erin has been patiently waiting on me.  I will try to have pics of bucks, maybe some does and yes, there will be pics of Duke’s products that he grows in his gardens.  I have waited to take some pics of Duke with

2 Buy or Not 2 Buy

Posted on August 19, 2015

That is the question.  You may or may not believe this, but I was a well read young person.  I read lots of novels–fiction and non-fiction.  I read World Book encyclopedias like they were going out of style–cover to cover.  I read a lot of the classics.  Some I couldn’t stand to finish, while others are truly that–classic.        Now, I read lots of websites, magazine and blog posts.  Throw in a lot

    We didn’t have time for a big time vacation.  So, we took a really good one instead.  The Dragon Lady and I traveled all of the way to Canadian, Texas.  WAY GOOD TRIP!  Yes, I did the faithful husband shopping deal.  We went to several furniture and antique stores.  I tried to keep the “glazed” husband look off of my face as I followed.  I tried.        The food was good.

did the summer go?  It is gone.  Sure, there will be some hot days left, but summer is gone.  Just look at all of the pics of everybody’s first day back to school on facebook.  I haven’t been on any grand vacation.  Just been to a bunch of sales and farms.  And it has been plenty busy keeping everything going here.        Now, the last set of goats are getting weaned.  We are

   Yes, Duke and I made it to OKC for the Tesla/Def Leppard concert.  I hadn’t been to a concert on a Monday evening before, but it was good.  There wasn’t a warm up band.  Tesla was on stage at 7pm, as advertised.  I figured that these older bands want to get done earlier, get paid and sleep on their way to the next show.  Probably a bit different than back in the 80s and

Hysteria & Pyromania.  Throw in some Great Radio Controversy and Mechanical Resonance.  I’m going to have a large time.   Let’s get rocked!

Goat buying

Posted on August 09, 2015

      I can tell you that without a doubt, the best part of returning to ag teaching is not having to buy many goats to fill orders.  First, the order buying only enabled me to buy numbers which helped get the average price down.  I didn’t make money filling orders.  I have been accused of using a fish net method of buying.  Buy them all, get the right ones in the right homes

Hot in herre

Posted on August 07, 2015

    Nelly had a hit song back in 2002 rapping about it being “Hot in Herre”.  Well, it is now hot here in paradise as well.  It is not uncommon to have temps above a 100, but this old, fat dude isn’t used to the temps combined with the humidity.  The heat and humidity have combined for sweat stained caps and water running down the crack of my..       Speaking of hot,

Hall of Fame

   I had the pleasure of attending the CareerTech summer conference in Tulsa.  This is a conference for all teachers in the careertech system.  I’ve never enjoyed going to this conference.  Almost everything about summer conference could be handled in 1 or 2 quasi-short emails.  But, they still have it.  I guess it’s good for Tulsa’s hotels and restaurants and other type places.      But, you do get to see some comrades and others

     I grew up watching boxing.  ESPN used to have the Friday Night Fights.  Mike Tyson was a nobody in black shorts and shoes, no robe.  Just ready to fight.  Hagler/Hearns.  Sugary Ray Leonard.  HBO fights.  I liked them.  Then boxing went in the toilet.  SInce, I have followed the UFC for the past decade or so.  My old buddy, Fred Slater, was way into the old school MMA fights.  The ones that had
