Local & County Shows

Posted on February 22, 2015

      Why is it hard to find good ag teachers?  I can answer this.  It’s because nobody wants to deal with the low rent showers during local & county stock shows.  The serious showers take care of business and don’t sweat the locals and counties.  But the low rents get all worked up and have to get serious in a hurry.  I mean, hell, they haven’t washed or walked pigs all year, but

Thoughts, random thoughts

Posted on February 20, 2015

      It has been a Thursday, all day long.  Not all bad though.  I don’t know if my internet connection is working really good, or if some videos just BOUNCE better than others.  Bouncy, squishy, happy.  Either way, it makes for a good evening.        I had to order more stuff for the greenhouse.  I really don’t have a clue what I am doing with this project, but I have good

all day

Posted on February 19, 2015

     Some days just start earlier than others and not as well.  Today was one of those.  I did chores, checked babies and had to doctor a mature doe.  I then walked through the whether barn to do my morning check for snotty noses or worse.  Today was one of the worse.  One of Duke’s weathers had shat all over his hut, his blankets and his legs.  Duke got to wash a goat before

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
