Thoughts from Kelln

March Sunday

Posted on March 10, 2014

      I will be the first to admit that the time change did NOT affect me waking up and heading to the couch to watch some Law& Order about 5 am.  However, I did fall asleep on said couch and did not wake up until 9:30 am.  Which means that it was 8:30 am yesterday morning.  So, I gathered up some goats to wash, clip and take a few pics.   With considerable

Short

Posted on March 08, 2014

      This blog is dedicated to Tory B.  He, much like myself, is short in stature and short on intelligience.  He says that he has ADD and has a hard time reading long blogs.  So this one will be short.  After seeing the feed bill that you left me, I wish you would have mailed it (the bill, not the feed).  At least you would have had to pay for a stamp and

Whew!

Posted on March 07, 2014

     What a long, dirty miserable day.  I attended the NW district show in Enid.  Saw some nice goats, but it was dirty in that barn and it was a long day.  It was very evident as to who had taken care of their goats this winter.  There was also a distinct line seperating the good showmen and the other 90% that needed a lot more work.        But then I got

Under-rated

Posted on March 06, 2014

      I think in today’s info-overloaded society, we quickly over-rate to many things.  We want it right now.  We don’t always give credit to somebody that can stay at it year after year.  We always want the hottest new thing.  Livestock showing is a prime example.  We all want the hottest new genetics or want to go to the breeder that won the big show last year.  In reality, we are better off

Thinking

Posted on March 05, 2014

      Sometimes, and only on special occasions I think a little bit.  Recently, I caught myself thinking about my job.  I was thinking that if it wasn’t for equipment, customers and employees then I would have a really good job.  Ironically, without the equipment, excellent customers and a dang good set of employees, I wouldn’t have a job anymore.         I remember thinking back in 2002 or 3 that I

Let’s get random

Posted on March 04, 2014

      It’s a monday night, still cold outside, so let us gather round the dim light of the computer screen and just get a little bit random.  When I say random, I mean kind of all over the place.  Like a drunk monkey wearing a chaffeur outfit driving a yellow taxi cab down a paved county road.  Bar ditch to bar ditch and occasionally take out a fence post or two.  Not that

Four letter words

Posted on March 03, 2014

    The first four letter word today is LEXI.  As in Lexi Vanderwork.  She’s had a pretty good year showing goats.  She started it off by winning the State Fair, then she won a showmanship division at the Lone Star Elite as well as placing high.  Then she won a couple of classes and was reserve grand at the Champion’s Choice.  Now, she has shown the grand wether at Woodward District.

Olympics

Posted on February 28, 2014

      No more Olympics on the tube, so I am going through some withdrawls.  But it got me to thinking about things that ought to be an Olympic event. –Parallel parking a ’93 Chevy van –Changing diapers (I wouldn’t be very good) –Trailer backing (Tyke would be a non-qualifier) –Finding the tv remote control –Hitting the snooze button on the alarm clock–eyes must stay closed. –Watermelon home run contest. –Getting a does horns

Emails from LA

Posted on February 27, 2014

      The following is an email that I recieved from some girl in LA.  As you read it, remember that this is my daughter and there are some borderline and some over-the-line smart ass remarks that were directed at me and to not be taken literal.   I like to to do a deep study at beginning of every year and see what movies are currently in production and this year I found

This morning

Posted on February 26, 2014

     If you need a fix of the crap that comes out of my mind, then you need to go to the message board of oklahomshowgoats.com.  I spent too much time on there this morning replying to a post instead of writing pertinent info on this wealth of knowledge website.
