Wild

Posted on May 02, 2013

      It is May 2.  I was wearing shorts–no shirt, on Sunday afternoon.  Last night and this morning–32 degrees, snow, sleet & drizzle rain.  And then there is this EFFing wind that has just been relentless for several months now, save for a couple of beautiful days.  This weather is wild.  It was 90 degrees on Sunday.  Sixty degree change in just a couple of days.  Throw in some moisture and a pile

Twins

Posted on May 01, 2013

     I saw Tyke’s twin kids this evening.  They are cute,  but I’m not much on babies until they are of age to corrupt.  If they can walk, feed themselves and keep from crapping themselves, then that is the age that I start getting interested in being around kids.  Tammy, on the hand, loves babies.  It makes me nervous.         I changed my feeding program this past year on the doe

Poison

Posted on April 30, 2013

     I like the Alice Cooper song “Poison”.  I’m also a fan of the hair metal band–Poison.  “Don’t need nothing but a good time” is an anthem around here.  These songs are standby fare in the iPod arsenal.  This saturday is the Pick your Poison sale in Stephenville, Tx.  Simpson, Henkhaus, Ann Shafer and myself will be selling top shelf goats.  I can’t attend the sale, due to Kela’s graduation (pretty easy decision).  Schoovy

Amazing!! Best day of 2013

Posted on April 29, 2013

     It is Sunday evening and everything in my little piece of paradise is almost perfect.   I woke up this morning and couldn’t move my head or neck.  Why?  Because I got stung be a wasp yesterday afternoon.  Where?  Right on my left jaw.  I felt it and knew that I was screwed immediately.  The good thing was that I could still watch Law & Order re-runs.         On Saturday,

The Western Oklahoma online doe sale is on Monday.  This is a very nice set of doe kids.  They are not overly fed or fitted.  They are better in person than in the pictures.  They are backed by a pile of genetics.  The lot #2–tag 12 kid from Tori is a good one.  Tori isn’t going to give this one away.  She will make a show doe and will definitely make a brood doe.  She

Jobs

     The first big goat sale of the year in OK and I coudn’t be there.  Why? I have a job.  Short-handed.  Too much to do, therefore I couldn’t leave the store until 5:30.  Hour and a half drive, sale starts at 6:30–Bonham auctioneering. I drive fast, but not that fast.  Sounds like the sale went way high anyways.  I’m just a bargain bin shopper that only helps a couple of people with goats

   that you can’t argue with.  Why?  Because I am right.      So I go to Carl’s Jr. to get a $6 burger combo deal which cost $8.28 before tax.  Something seems amiss with a $6 burger for $8.28 but that wasn’t what caught my attention.  The high school dropout & future rehab attendee says “I’ll hook you up with a discount that will save you 89 cents.”  I said, “Sure.  That would be

Sales

Posted on April 23, 2013

     I love going to sales…equipment sales, livestock sales, local sale barn, premium sales, etc.  I especially enjoy the live sales that have killer good food with icy, cold beverages.  Especially sales like Mock has with the authentic Cajun food and the bud light iced down in the stock tanks.  I can then get in the right frame of mind to buy a pair of goats from Ralph and Lex (which both made the

Finally

Posted on April 22, 2013

     I’ve been waiting on a doe to kid.  She lived with Rumour for a couple of weeks last fall.  I knew when I put her in with him and when I took her out, she was obviously bred but I didn’t ever know exactly what day she was due.  Finally, she kidded.  This excites me.  Especially, since she had twin bucks.        Finally, I made a decision.  We are leaving the

Friday

Duke and I traveled to Lake Texhoma on Thursday night. We hauled Darin & Rhett Gambill with us. I had scheduled a striper fishing excursion a month ago. At that time, I thought the weather would be good. I was wrong. It was a COLD son of a gun on the water @ 6:30 am. Coveralls shouldn’t be a requirement unless you are ice fishing. We caught a few fish at the first two stops,
