Thoughts from Kelln

Come and listen to a story

    About getting old.  It is official!  I am OLD!  I knew that I was getting older, but I hadn’t gotten the memo that I was officially OLD.  Well, it came today.  It was delivered during 7th hour class.  I asked a student if she knew the theme song from the Beverly Hillbillies tv show?  She looked at me with a blank look and shook her head “no”.   What?  Lots of re-runs, even

Coming early

      Got a set of natural bred does that are due starting this Thursday.  One of them decided to go several days early and had kids on Monday afternoon.  I normally don’t llike to lose a baby, but this time it might have worked out for the best.  The mother actually had triplets.  One was an under-developed still born still in the sack.  Another was a fully developed doe kid that just didn’t

      Maybe my memory is a little bit foggy, but I don’t ever remember it being this foggy, this often like it has for the past month here in Oklahoma.  It seems like several days of the week have been foggy.  We’re talking less than 1/4 mile visibility, on a regular basis. Maybe, all of this moisture in the air will eventually jumpstart a rain for this part of paradise.  Maybe, just maybe.

    I sit here at this computer, wondering if I should write, what to write, while an absolute goat industry GIANT, huge in stature, stands only feet away from the keyboard.  Maybe, we need a guest author tonight.  Maybe, not.  Maybe, just maybe, it’s time to call it a night.

      People, we have real problems developing right in front of us.  The first problem is not just relegated to goat producers.  It is a REAL 1st-world problem.  We have too many logins and passwords.  Heck, I had to try 4 different times just to login into my own website.  For email, school, work, online auctions and other non-personal websites, I try to keep my logins/passwords somewhat similar.  But, some sites need a

     For non-stockshow people, it is hard for them to comprehend the amount of dollars spent on a “good one”.  You commonly hear phrases such as “These animals cost THOUSANDS!”  And, “I CANNOT believe how much money people spend on these animals.”   Some would think that we are crazy for the amount of money spent on show animals, show feed, supplements, clippers, heat to keep them warm, vet bills, etc, etc, etc.  I

     I have and still am fighting a wicked sinus infection.  It isn’t a cold and thankfully is not the flu, but it has kicked my donkey like an OSU kicker kicks field goals in Bedlam overtime–Hard and good!  I haven’t missed work, any appointments, chores and I dang sure didn’t miss the Champions Choice Jackpot.      The jackpot was held this past Saturday at Norman.  About 150 wethers and 125 does.  Way

Not Much

Posted on December 03, 2014

     I’ve got all  you would ever want to read, but when it comes down to it, to be honest, I really don’t have much.  I did have, but then I clicked on facebook first.  And the wheels fell off.  I like Koalas.  And when I saw a facebook link to a craigslist ad for selling a used Koala….well, I just had to read that ad.  Look it up.  It is funny.  Obviosuly, GumNut

     As I start to hit this keyboard, a song is kicking off on iTunes.  It is a TRUE classic–Tchaikovsky’s 1812 overture.  Yes, this tune is actually in my tunes selection, along with several other classics.  The problem that I am having with this song, on this night, is that as the song plays, all I can envision is the ending of a great American classic movie–“Caddyshack”.  Gopher holes blowing up, golf bets being
