The day after

Posted on March 13, 2014

     Yes, I have survived a full day after setting up a facebook account.  I will also admit that I am guilty.  Yes, I got done with chores last night and came to the computer and clicked on a website–not the Chive or oklahomashowgoats as has always been my routine.  I went straight to facebook to see if I had any new friends.        Don’t be expecting me to write anything on

     This facebook deal is absolutely retarded.  I don’t have a clue what I am doing and I don’t enjoy doing something that I don’t know what I am doing.  I don’t like the website fundamentals of facebook, but the software is OBVIOUSLY scary effective.  How the heck does it know to list me to all of these people?  I will gladly buy a goat from the first goat breeder that “accepted” me.  And,

…like a gutshot Comanche in an old western movie.  That would describe the wind that hit this piece of paradise this afternoon.  It is blowing relentlessly. What lilttle soil moisture that we had from the little bit of snow is now gone.  But enough about the weather.        My dad saw my last feed bill.  “I don’t know how you afford to feed that high dollar stuff.”  Goats have an inverse ratio as

      How about this weather in NW OK today?  It was stupid nice.  Too good.  Too hot and no rain in the forecast.  But it was a good night to watch a jr. high baseball game.  Got home and did chores, then came inside and turned on the tube.  I could watch JAWS or a concert on PBS.  Duke and I decided on the concert on public tv on this fine evening.  I

March Sunday

      I will be the first to admit that the time change did NOT affect me waking up and heading to the couch to watch some Law& Order about 5 am.  However, I did fall asleep on said couch and did not wake up until 9:30 am.  Which means that it was 8:30 am yesterday morning.  So, I gathered up some goats to wash, clip and take a few pics.   With considerable

      This blog is dedicated to Tory B.  He, much like myself, is short in stature and short on intelligience.  He says that he has ADD and has a hard time reading long blogs.  So this one will be short.  After seeing the feed bill that you left me, I wish you would have mailed it (the bill, not the feed).  At least you would have had to pay for a stamp and

     What a long, dirty miserable day.  I attended the NW district show in Enid.  Saw some nice goats, but it was dirty in that barn and it was a long day.  It was very evident as to who had taken care of their goats this winter.  There was also a distinct line seperating the good showmen and the other 90% that needed a lot more work.        But then I got

      I think in today’s info-overloaded society, we quickly over-rate to many things.  We want it right now.  We don’t always give credit to somebody that can stay at it year after year.  We always want the hottest new thing.  Livestock showing is a prime example.  We all want the hottest new genetics or want to go to the breeder that won the big show last year.  In reality, we are better off

      Sometimes, and only on special occasions I think a little bit.  Recently, I caught myself thinking about my job.  I was thinking that if it wasn’t for equipment, customers and employees then I would have a really good job.  Ironically, without the equipment, excellent customers and a dang good set of employees, I wouldn’t have a job anymore.         I remember thinking back in 2002 or 3 that I

Let’s get random

Posted on March 04, 2014

      It’s a monday night, still cold outside, so let us gather round the dim light of the computer screen and just get a little bit random.  When I say random, I mean kind of all over the place.  Like a drunk monkey wearing a chaffeur outfit driving a yellow taxi cab down a paved county road.  Bar ditch to bar ditch and occasionally take out a fence post or two.  Not that
