It Happens

Posted on April 18, 2016

On occassion, it actually rains in this part of the world.  This weekend, it happened.  It started raining Saturday afternoon and kept at it until Sunday morning.  There are 2 inches in the rain gauge.  The only thing that keeps it from being a perfect rain is that it is a couple of weeks late getting here.  But, we will take it.   And with the rain, other issues happen.  Saturday evening, I was on

      I might have been looking at a certain other website, that I kind of like to frequent.  It has lots of humour on it.  One of their topics was discussing the English language.  I can’t argue with the posts as it provides some definite proof that our language is plumb sideways. I haven’t seen any of his stuff in quite some time, but I always enjoyed the humour and wit of Gallagher.

We’ve had a couple of sets of triplets born in the past couple of days.  Luckily only 2 of each survived.   But one thing about a lot of sets of triplets is that one or all of them will be spraddle legged for several hours.  They just can’t seem to get their legs underneath themselves.  Some of this is a result of triplets being all tucked up inside together.  Some of it may be

It is truly amazing at how close a yipping coyote can sound like it is sitting right on your front porch.  3:54 am this morning and I was outside with a rifle that has a light mounted on it.  I first thought the critter was in the front yard, then by the mailbox but as it turned out he was sitting down by the north pond.  They can throw that voice out there. Another amazing

Sale Over

Posted on April 11, 2016

      The Banners and Backdrops sale is done and in the books.  Personally, I would call it a success.  Duke and I got to Perry on Friday afternoon.  We had planned on being there earlier, but it just didn’t happen.  We got setup, unloaded, fed and watered then found a hotel.  Tyke, the Gambler, Duke and I made a dash over towards Morrison to the Ring Family compound.  Eric and his brother Michael

Thoughts on this day

Posted on April 07, 2016

Where to begin?  i know that I am behind on this blog.  My fault.  Let’s ramble. Happy birthday to a couple of cool chicks–Chesley Comstock(18) and Mindi Clark(??).  We look forward to continued great things from Chesley Comstock.  And as for DR. Mindi Clark–cheers to another birthday to my favorite daughter’s best ag teacher.  These two ladies always put me in a better mood (not that anybody could tell).  I love being around super successful

      The winds were back with a vengeance on Tuesday.  Unfortunately, a fire got started north of Woodward.  It is still going.  Supposedly, a couple of high lines whipping in the wind sparked and started the fire.  We’ve got several friends that live near where the fires started.  One of those families is Scott and Chesley Comstock and Scott’s parents.  Luckily, they are all fine.  I do know that there has been a

Buyers and Bidders

Posted on April 05, 2016

I enjoy watching the pshycology involved with the art of bidding during an auction.  There are lots of emotions that can happen in a short period of time during an auction.   Hoping for a miracle–This bidder has an addiction to owning a good animal, but they know that they aren’t going to get it done.  This is the type that bids at 8:05 am on an online auction and then spends the rest of
