Thoughts from Kelln

Where

Posted on August 14, 2015

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

Concert

Posted on August 12, 2015

   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

Pour Some Sugar On Me

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

Posted on August 06, 2015

   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

UFC

Posted on August 03, 2015

     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

Anniversary

Posted on August 02, 2015

      The first Saturday in August means that there is a goat sale in Texas that I normally attend.  Goats aren’t bad, but the food is great.  This is one of the few places that I can find a potato burrito that is made right.  When I was a kid, my grandpa Kelln had a hired man (LG)  that was married to a woman that made wicked good potato burritos.  Yes, she was

Online Sales

Posted on July 30, 2015

Lots of calls, texts and emails.  So, here’s the answers to the most popular questions on the online sale on Thursday. 1–Yes, the red front legged doe looks like that.  She is cool.  Handles big.  Cool doe.  We priced her when she was still skinny, didn’t get her bought.  Now, she will bring some jack. 2—lot 3–tag 13P–POWER!  This chick handles big time.  Slick shear, hair, whatever way you want to show her.  Way round

Ice Cream

Posted on July 29, 2015

    I love ice cream.  Unfortunately, I have this little lactose intolerance problem.  But, I still eat the stuff.  I just have to be strategic about it.  In this part of the world, we have Braum’s.  They are an Oklahoma chain that makes creamy smooth ice cream as well as good burgers.  They have two big farms–one by Tutle and one west of Shattuck.  I used to sell them a pile of equipment, parts
