Thoughts from Kelln

Road Time=Time2 Think

Posted on February 18, 2015

     I had to make a quick dash to Stillwater today.  So, I deciced to multi-task and take a load of does to get dropped off at Perry.  As I was driving east, my thoughts were mostly of what I need to do for the school and kids to get ready for the next month of shows.  I kept the sticky notes close by as the list is growing.  I stopped at the Cowboy

     I was in dire need of a haircut.  Any longer, and I was just going to let it grow and then I could startup a Crue, KISS, GnR, AC/DC tribute band and I wouldn’t need a wig to wear. No worries as Duke and I both got scalped.  I don’t care how it looks as it feels good.  My hats now fit right.  Too much hair can just feel lethal.  Although it is

   The 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live is on the tube tonight. Absolute huge lineup of mega stars are making appearances & reprising legendary roles.  I never get sick of Will Ferrel as Alex Trebeck.  Le tits now or let it snow.  Turd Ferguson.  Jeapordy done right.  Of course, I wish Chris Farley, John Belushi and Robin Williams were doing live appearances.      The musical guests, the comedy, the political humor, the characters,

Friday, uh, the 13th

Posted on February 14, 2015

     It hasn’t been a scary day but has been a day that reminded me what I didn’t like about teaching ag. –OYE online entries –Dealing with unorganized parents that don’t have their crap together in order for the old, fat ag teacher to complete OYE entries.  Even though I gave the 12th as a deadline 2 weeks ago.  Yes, I know that they aren’t actually due until the 20th, but I don’t like

New Challenge

Posted on February 11, 2015

     Not that I needed one, have time for another one or for that matter want one, but I am retarded and therefore, will tackle this new challenge. I have never operated a greenhouse before.  I think that they are an essential part of plant production and an excellent learning tool.  BUT…I haven’t done much with them.  Sure, when I taught at Fairview, there was a greenhouse.  Mindi used to tell people that asked

Too nice?

Posted on February 09, 2015

      Yes, yes it can be too nice.  And I am worried that this weather, right now, is too nice.  The pig show on Saturday was absolutely perfect weather.  85 degrees–no wind–TOO NICE!  The hogs were getting hot.  The kids did well, placed as they should have and we were happy.  We needed a learning show and other than the heat, it was perfect.          Sunday brought another hot day

     Laverne is a town in the very far NW corner of the great state of Oklahoma.  It isn’t in the panhandle, but you can easily walk to the panhandle if need be.  This town is about 30 miles straight north of Shattuck.  Much like Shattuck, the town of Laverne is an agricultural and oil based community.  The Laverne school has a long history of successful athletics and FFA.  Historically, the Laverne FFA chapter

Labor Intensive

Posted on February 06, 2015

     There are a lot of things in life that are labor intensive.  Raising goats is very labor intensive.  Excelling at sports–labor intensive.  Growing vegetables–lots of labor.  Anybody can puts lots of labor into a project.  But still, it just might not be right.  We all know those people that were “gym rats”–they worked hard, harder than anybody, but no matter what, they couldn’t make it to the NBA, NFL or MLB.  It just

Amazing career

Posted on February 04, 2015

    I watched Dan Rather interview a guy tonight.  I sat there watching the interview thinking to myself, “That dude has put together a really unique, albeit succesful career”.  I also wondered if this interview would just be interesting to somebody of my demographic or if the younger generation would even know who this guy is.  At the end of the interview, I strolled down the hall to where the younger generation has a

Great Americans

Posted on February 03, 2015

     I routinely find myself surrounded by great Americans.  No, I don’t hang out with very many dignitaries, politicians or celebrities.  We just do our own thing.  Which is way more fun.  And those that are around us tend to have a large time as well.  Yesterday, I decided to fire up the smoker.  Pork loin and ribs along with some sausages.  Tammy made some sides and texted some people.  The super bowl was
