Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on August 28, 2014

However you want to put it, 4 for 4.  Four-Quatro-Vier (which in German is said “Fier”, like fear).  We are on a streak.  Four days in a row.  Better go look for a 4 leaf clover.        Some of you may know that I really like listening to Jerry Clower.  The guy became famous just telling personal life stories and tying them to truisms.  And he was clean. He was a character, but

3 for 3

Posted on August 27, 2014

      Like a hitter on a hot streak, I’m 3 for 3.  Three days in a row dispensing quality info.   Today’s topic du jour–Some things just ain’t right.  Exhibit A is the four new flavors of Lay’s potato chips.  Never mess with a hot streak.  When it’s good, it’s real good.  And Lay’s is making concoctions that aren’t meant to be.   Bacon Mac & Cheese–I love bacon & I like mac

Oh Lucky Day

     So, here it is.  Two blogs, two days in a row.  You better go buy a lottery ticket as it is your lucky day.  I am just packed full of worthwhile info.  First, the favorite daughter was pretty stoked to get to pick up the Emmy Award tickets for her bosses.  She had them in hand.  I’ve got pics.  No.  She didn’t get to attend the Emmy’s, but the people that she works

Where the? What the?

     RUSM?  The weekend is gone.  That’s as messed up as an upside down tackle box.  Where did it go?  What happened?  SIx months ago, I had big plans for this weekend.  I had plans to take a buck and a doe to the TWBDS in Fredericksburg.  Then I changed careers.  Then I added a job to my existing career.  Then, last Saturday, the doe that I had broke to show and ready to

Kick back

…and think.  Close your eyes, ease the seat back and think about the best tasting meal…….dessert……food…….or maybe even the best drink that you ever had.  Somebody, somewhere grew that food item that tasted, oh so good.  Oh, you were thinking of an icy cold glass of water.  Well, you stumped me, not really.  Even still, there was an ag engineer that dug the well, set the pump and made that water available.  And once that

Weekend–YES SIR!

Posted on August 18, 2014

      It is Sunday evening.  The weekend is all but over.  Here’s to the BOTH of you that read this deal on a regular basis.  Cheers!  Ha!!      Friday evening brought some visitors from Pennsylvania.  I appreciate the fact that people are willing to get out and scout.  That’s how it needs to be done.   Yes, the weekend is all but done and I don’t have a wicked, wild story to

     Here at the Kelln Kompound on this fine Friday evening, we got to witness not one but two, rainbows.  Side by side.  Seeing two rainbows at the same time makes me happier than a billy goat with two p……!       I actually have been laughing so hard that I have shed tears.  Yes, I’ve been back on youtube watching Robin Williams’ stuff.  Hats off to the Jimmy Fallon tribute.  I’m not

      Online gradebooks, fairboard meeting, class schedules, , oh $h!t.  1st hour had a kid with the last name of Kelln, a kid with the first name of Kelln and several others that are cousins to these Kellns.  One day down, many more to go.  I am a retard. Trying to get a couple of buck prospects and a sale doe prospect broke to lead.  I would like for Duke to be breaking

     Sometimes, a Tuesday can feel like a Monday.  You get up early to get BACK in a routine of being somewhere on time.  Feed, water, check stock, wait, what….that doe has the runs.  WHY?  What?  Oh well, a bolus and some spectam should stop that.        Then you stumble through a day of meetings that reminds you of 15 years of meetings from a past life, that is now, once again,
