This wind!!  I’ve seen windier days but this one ranks near the top.  Unreal.  It has been a day not fit for man nor beast. No rona or riots in this part of the world.  I guess the wind kept us safe.  Peace be with you and you.  Let’s all pray that our country can get healed up from this mess.

Big Adventure!

Posted on June 09, 2020

Friday morning, I drove to Elgin, OK.  Some will say that is the capitol of the Oklahoma FFA.  After seeing their new ag building, it would be hard to argue. I piled into a vehicle with John Lastly and Cody McElhaney.  We headed to DFW and caught a plane.  Yes, we had to wear face masks.  We landed in Sacramento, CA on Friday evening.  Here is a quick word from the now wise.  Just because

Things that I like

Posted on June 05, 2020

This could be a really long list but it isn’t.  I’m a lot like that one dude from Cincinnati, and could be easily swayed for one particular item.  A really good item. I like a really hot day that ends with an unexpected rain shower that drops the temps from 101 to 70 in less than an hour.  I wanted some really good rain but will take what we can get.  Much like that dude

I did some plowing.  More than I cared to…but, it is done.  When it comes to farming, I need a tractor to be mechanically sound and I need the AC to work.  I don’t care about the lights or the radio.  Bout 10 this morning, as the sun was starting to shine, the cab started to become a bit uncomfortable.  So, I turned the temp dial down.  No good.  AC was done. I could see

Wind in my hair

I’ve never owned a Harley or any other big bike for that matter.  Decades ago, I had almost pulled the trigger on a ’91 Fatboy that was in El Paso.  Instead, my brother Jake and I bought a set of Hereford cow/calf pairs.  Good decision as those rips were profitable.  Nonetheless, I still kind of wish that I would have bought the bike. Tuesday evening found me responding to a book face post.  Halie Schovanec

Yes, there was a holiday yesterday.  Memorial Day.  I hope all of you took a moment to ponder over those that have given all for this country. It was also a goat holiday for me.  It was the first day in a while that I did NOT drench a doe goat.  The doe that I induced 14 days ahead of her due date had babies.  Yes, there were triplets and yes, two of them are

Just Stuff

Posted on May 22, 2020

This post is probably going to be horrible.   Just a bunch of stuff to give old turds in Nebraska something to read.  Here we go. Since I first found my footing in Stillwater back in 1989, I have been a fan of the radio station the KATT, Rock 100.5.  I have fond memories of working in the OSU meat lab during the summer months with the KATT blaring from the radio.  A lot of

I’ve hauled a lot of different things over the past decades.  I’ve hauled ass before.  And I have the driving awards from numerous states to prove that I was hauling ass. I’ve also literally hauled ass before.  We have a really fun story of hauling an ass for Grandma Katherine Urban.  Somewhere, I have a picture of that donkey delivery. I’ve delivered a puppy from Shattuck to Phoenix which in turn headed to Tucson and

Some stuff that I don’t like

Posted on May 19, 2020

plus some stuff that I do like.   The past several days have involved doe goats, drenching goats and farming.   I don’t like any of those items.  I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I hate a female goat.   Hate em.  But, I can’t make bucks and wethers without them. Over the years, we have not had very many toxemia cases.  Maybe 1 or 2 per year.  But now, for
