Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on July 26, 2014

There is a lot about Cali that is just like I expected. LOTS of people. Traffic is horrible. The seafood is killer. Everybody needs to go check out the inhabitants of Venice Beach. Interesting would be an under rated word describing some of these people. For years, I have heard about the In N Out burger chains. They are consistently on top burger lists. We visited one today. I have never seen a fast food

Headed West

Posted on July 25, 2014

Feeders are full, neighborhood patrol alerted, security system set and Tyler will be taking care of the Kelln Kompound for a day or two while we head west. We are lucky to have somebody like Tyler that can stay there and take care of the stock and he knows what to do and can tend to the stock as needed. He is the resident herdsman for Tyke & Taylor also. It’s money well spent. Of

       Says the Dragon Lady.  “You went to Quitaque, Texas and did not come home with a wether? What’s wrong with you?”   They weren’t for sale.  I bought does.  He has a LOT of does–big and small.  Look at them.  They’re good.  Lunch was good.         Then she said, “You ARE retarded.  James Sweet better have written the check for those.”  At this point, James grunted and ducked to

Week 3

Posted on July 23, 2014

     I am now going on the third week since I pulled a muscle.  This muscle strain has affected me.  It’s not that I jogged or ran on a daily basis.  But I run from time to time from one pen to the next, or run to catch a goat or if I need the does gathered, I used to run out and run them into the corral.  But not lately.  I can’t.  It

Saturday AM

     Woke up this morning and remembered that I needed to give shots in order to sync does.  By 8 am, does had been gathered, sorted, shots given, chores done, wormed show wethers and back inside.  Some mornings just call for a pan full of Cocoa Puffs and milk.  Eat the cereal and then drink the chocolatey left over milk out of the pan.  Rewards.      For syncing does, I’ve been using 2

     My summer just seems to stay as screwed up as an upside down tackle box.  I have no one to blame, but it isn’t all my fault.  No matter.  The summer weather is proving that it is a pile of coat hangers kind of year.  RUKM?!   It is 70 degrees and wet & green, in July.  We WILL Gladly take it.        In a week or so, I am going

You just got nothing worthwhile to say.  And then I realize, that isn’t true.  I just don’t feel like typing.

It’s time to order DNA kits for Kansas City.   It’s time to make sure that you have a fresh bottle of GO juice. It’s time to look at your pens and think “I still need another good goat or twelve.”  Then, it’s time to call me and I will help you fill those pens.   It’s time to thank your ag teacher/county agent.  If you’ve got a good one, go thank them. They are

Day of Rest?

Posted on July 14, 2014

     I know that Sunday is supposed to be the sabbath–a day of rest.  Well, it didn’t happen around here.  I made it to Mass, then back home.  I used the man lift, once again,  and climbed back on top of the machine shed.  The sky light is now fixed.  And there is blood stains on the roof to prove it.  At least the stains are not on the ground.        The
