Champion’s Choice Jackpot

Posted on December 04, 2015

     The Champion’s Choice Jackpot show is this Saturday in Norman, OK.  The weather outside is supposed to be delightful this weekend.  It is the season of giving and this jackpot show will give away about $40,000.  Yes, that is $40K that will be won.  There are lots of people that don’t make $40K in a year and here we are giving it away.  Go to for all of the sponsoring breeders, times,

    Dec. 1, 2015 is the 15th birthday of our favorite son.  Yep, Duke is 15.  If you haven’t seen him in the past several months, he isn’t that cute little boy anymore.  The feed bill has gotten considerably higher as he has gotten taller.       We were out of power on Monday evening.  The chores were done, tanks full and it was getting cold.  We elected to go to Woodward and

Goats on Ice

Posted on November 29, 2015

     The weather has been fairly crappy in this part of the world.  We recieved about an 1″ of rain on Thanksgiving Day.  Then it froze, then it sleeted on top of that and then we got a little bit of snow.  Friday was kind of a slippery kind of day.  But it wasn’t that cold and the wind was mild.  Then Friday night we got another layer of frozen rain.  Then Saturday night

Thanskgiving Day

Posted on November 27, 2015

       We had a successful Thanksgiving.  It was here in paradise, 3 miles south of Fargo.  My parents were here.  Both brothers and their families.  Even had a couple of family friends that attended dinner with us.  I love it that we have extended “family” that feel welcome enough to spend a holiday with us.  We also got to do a little facetime with our traveling Kelln.          I smoked

Hope is…. an optimisitic outlook. buying a show animal 10 months before the target show. Christmas morning. Batman. having children. sitting, waiting on somebody to finish the prayer so you can cut into Thanksgiving dinner. sometimes futile waiting on an Okie State football national championship. putting in CIDRs, giving shots, changing CIDRs, giving more shots and turning the buck in with the donor. watching the news for the weather. buying a new buck. breaking in

     The Dragon Lady can cook.  It didn’t used to be this good, but she realized quickly that she needed to do better.  And now, I will put her up against any chef, anywhere.  She can compete.  I’ve paid lots of money for steaks that were killer good, but not as good as what she can do on this Traeger.         Tonight, she served Duke and I a cured, smoked pork

Friday Funnies

Posted on November 21, 2015

     I have referred to facebook as a socially transmitted disease. It is.  Too many ‘Mericans are addicted to checking it, posting, liking, sharing and creeping.  But it does have value.  On this Friday, I have laughed hard at facebook posts. –The squatty potty video.  It is several minutes long, but worth the watch.  Very well written.  The whole rainbow swirl ice cream cone coming out of the back end of a unicorn is

       I hate ’em but they are a neccesary evil.  I don’t check texts while driving.  Therefore, when I stop driving, I have forgetten that I have texts.  And in the meantime, more texts come in, so the earlier, un-opened texts get pushed down the line.         Texts are also an improper form of communication.  It is dang neart impossible to properly send a text with proper emotion tied to

Wicked Wednesday

Posted on November 19, 2015

     This Wednesday felt more like a Monday.  To start with, I had to meet a trailer on I-40 to pickup some online pig purchases.  On Monday morning, the driver planned on being to my stop by 9:30 or 10 am.  He also said that he would call me the night before.  There wasn’t a call, but I had talked to him a 2nd time on Monday evening.  I don’t like to be late,

Weathering the Storm

Posted on November 17, 2015

      We have some weird weather going on for November in paradise.  This weather would be normal for April or May–butt loads of wind, possible chance of a Tornasty, OKC news channels are over-sensationalizing what is actually going on in NW OK.  And it all makes people nervous.  Especially parents.         Had a dad that lives in central OK call because his daughter wasn’t answering her phone.  Tammy got her
