Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on February 16, 2017
I just overheard Duke tell his mother that our family just missed a national holiday.  She said, “Kelln males don’t care about Valentine’s Day.”  He replied, “Not that holiday.  Today was the last day of quail season and Dad and I were too busy to go.”    I guess both sides of that conversation were right. Speaking of big days.  Okie State wrestles Penn State on Sunday–1 vs. 2.  I don’t care if you like

Looks like Dirty Rain is siring some sellable kids for J&J.  I have some Dirty Rain daughters that will kid later in the spring.  I’m looking forward to that.  I didn’t get many wether/buck kids out of him his first year but I loved the doe kids.  I never took a pic of Dirty Rain when he was younger as had an injury.  I sold 1/2 to J&J because I knew that they would get

Word of the Day

The word of the day comes in a purple box.  It is a crisp cookie coated in caramel, sprinkled with toasted coconut, and striped with dark chocolaty coating.  I know that some of you addicts knew what it was when you read purple box. Yes, the word of the day is Samoas.  I was tickled when Tammy found a Girl Scout that was selling cookies.  I only bought 8 boxes.  I’m wishing that I would

Train Wreck

How did these goat animals ever survive the ride on Noah’s Ark?  Those two goats were obviously low quality as those kind breed.  But the more we “improve” them, the less they raise live offspring. I am part of a group text of various goat breeders.  This group text basically consists of the various train wrecks that happen when dealing with doe goats.  Yesterday, had a breeder send a pic of doe that had ate

I have numerous reasons for a headache and none include a self-inflicted problem.  I simply don’t have time for that. First and foremost is our weather.  I broke ice on Thursday morning.  Then it got windy.  Friday afternoon, the pickup thermometer read 91 degrees ON FEB. 10!  And there is a chance for snow on Sunday.  WTH?  Make up your mind. I saw a sign that describes our weather. Mother Nature:     You CANNOT

Sr. Usage

I have a tendency to roll things around in my brain as I am driving down the road.   Yesterday, as I was in a hurry to get back to Shattuck, I was thinking about my substitute teacher.  I had told him that I would be back by 1 but now it looked more like 2:30.  Crap!  I was hoping that this wasn’t going to screw up his plans and then I was like, “Dang.

Tammy and I had to journey to Waynoka today.  It was tough.  We, along with hundreds of others, had the tough job of attending a funeral.  It was a ceremony for a great kid from a great family that was only months away from graduating OSU and then marrying his high-school sweetheart/best friend.  I had the honor of watching our friend Allan Poe handle the tough job of the eulogy.  He did great.  RIP Layne

I routinely write/talk about restaurants from my travels.  But sometimes, one can leave out a great one that is a regular stop.  Rafy’s Tacos in Shattuck is awesome.  Small scale, big time good.  I have always eaten their tacos–either asada or barbacoa beef.  But tonight, I had the green sauce beef enchiladas.  AWESOME!!  They’ve also got me hooked on pineapple Jarito’s for my drink there. If you are in need of tacos, and it is

Punksy Phil

I just watched those dudes in top hats and tails drag a groundhog out of his hole on Gobbler’s Knob.  According to them, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so here we go with 6 more weeks of winter. I guess Feb. 1 was a holiday as well.  Some people get a little bit too excited about national football signing day.  This is kind of liking declaring a major show winner on sale day.  There is

Monday, Monday, Monday

I am back among the living.  I spent all of last week trying to keep from getting this flu bug.  Last Monday hit me hard as I was SORE!  But I though that it was a result of running a chain saw, hauling limbs and being fat and out of shape.  By Monday evening, I felt rough.  Over the next couple of days, I made it through the day.  Then back home to crash for
