Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on November 16, 2014

      Where would we be without it?  Maybe better off.  Probably not.  We are all attached to our phones, the internet, facebook, whatever.  All I know is that it is frustrating when something isn’t working.  I have been fighting this blog page server for almost 2 weeks.  For some reason, it is working tonight.  This afternoon, my iPhone wouldn’t work.  I tried shutting it down, recharging, everything except doing physical damage.  I loaded

      About 8 weeks ago, our resident football player broke his wrist in practice.  Okay.  It happens.  Now, I am up to $3,000 in bills.  There was no surgery.  And I have insurance.  I thought that we had good insurance.  I’m pretty sure that a person is better off NOT having health insurance in today’s times.  I know that this is a small amount compared to people that have serious medical issues, but

It’s here!

     They were right.  The artic front arrived right on time.  At 3:00 this afternoon, the pickup temp said that it was 90 degreess.  It felt like it.  I threw a hoodie into the pickup–just in case.  I went fifty miles southeast of paradise to Larry Moore’s to pick up a set of barrows that I bought online last week.  He made the comment, “I bet the weather changes before you get home.”  He

Here it comes

Posted on November 10, 2014

Winter is on its way.  The weather experts have been calling for this artic front for a week.  WInd and sub-freezing temps for a week.  I spent yesterday evening draining water hoses and unhooking float valves on water tanks.  The wethers will be wearing multiple blankets.  The good thing about the upcoming cold….we should be rid of flies till next year.

Lone Star

Posted on November 09, 2014

We came to the lone star elite jackpot. We like this show and still do, but we didn’t fare as well as years past. However, our crew is still leaving with a pile of cash as Scott Comstock won the $10,000 drawing. Good things come to great people. I couldn’t think of a better dude to win the cash. Our krew wasn’t shut out as Haley Schovanec had the res grand doe. We had become

Friday Night in San Angelo

Posted on November 08, 2014

Schneberger is happy to be here and his wife says that “Jared should by supper at Outback for everybody.” Schoovy has his hat on backwards. Which means he is getting smarter. Duke and I are just wore out from washing and shearing his 4 wethers. Bill wants a drink that looks like tea. Lone Star Elite Jackpot is tomorrow. Big fun.

We’re back!!

     I don’t think it was the Chinese that hacked the site this time.  Maybe it was that kim jong un.  Yeah, he and Dennis Rodman.  Actually, I think I had squirrels in my computer…and in my phone…and every form of telematics device from which I tried to log in to this lovely website.  Anyways, we’re back.      Between my other job, chasing pigs and doing chores in the dark–am & pm–it’s been

Halloween Hunting

Posted on November 01, 2014

I’m currently on the great Southwest hog hunt. Not doing much treating, just tricking myself into thinking hogs don’t smell that bad. I saw a Facebook post regarding a drag show. Just what do drag queens dess up as for Halloween? My lovely bride texted me a pic of herself dressed up as a witch. I replied “Isn’t that your everday attire?” Judging from her response, I don’t think that she found the humor. Have

Why? Part 2

Posted on October 30, 2014

     This post could be a Why NOT to do some things.  Such as my thoughts of Why a banner pic should just be the kid, the animal and the judge–no breeders, parents, helpers or friends–UNLESS it is a really special occasion–like a Sr. year after a really good career.       But not tonight.  This post is about the “Why” we do this.  It is NOT about the dollars.  None of us got

      I’m getting to where I don’t want to see the mail.  Every other day is some sort of doctor bill from Duke’s broken wrist.  And I thought that we had good insurance.  Monday’s bill was only $21.76, which compared to the rest of the bills should have add another zero or so.  It adds up in a hurry.        I like athletics, but there isn’t much return on investment for
