That’s how my last few days have been.
On Thursday, I had a ZOOM meeting that lasted longer than expected. Then I had some goat shoppers show up. They bought a doe kid that I really didn’t want to sell…but I really wanted her in good hands. So, she got a new home that I’m excited about.
I’ve got a train wreck kind of goat kid that I really like but it’s taking some work to get him over his structural issues. Are the issues caused by him being a single MONSTER kid or are they genetic? IDK but only a few have seen him and two want him for a buck and another wants him for a wether. Either way, I hope he works out.
On Friday, I took my gator and went to High Plains Technology Center to assist with their greenhouse sale. HOLY JEEMINY!!! This was an efficient work of art and my GOD, I think they sold well over $30K. I was draggin donkey when I got home. Good crew and for a good cause.
On Saturday, the boys and I worked a set of wethers. I Kelly clipped a March born Next Friday kid out of a first time momma. I’m now in a good mood. Then, we went and ate some Neubauer ribs and Greer brisket. I’m still full.
At some point, I checked the mail. I had a package from Indiana. A USPS envelope. I opened it and found the regular envelope that was inside of the big envelope. Inside that envelope was a package of Trident tropical twist gum. WTF??? I opened the gum to find some perfectly wrapped “gum” pieces with the payment for some semen. UNIQUE!! I love it. Well played Dude!!
Sunday found me watering garden spots and then making the statement, “I’ve already got the gator loaded on a trailer, let’s go to Wolf Creek on Dad’s place and catch some fish.” And this is where it get’s really random.
I’ve caught a lot of fish out of Wolf Creek on this place in my life. No big ones. Just a bunch of fun. I have caught largemouth bass, a perch or twelve and occasionally a nice channel cat. Recently, my dad sent a pic of a crappie. Then, my middle brother Jake and his son Jett caught some crappie. What?
Today, we got random. We caught lots of bass (couple of 2-3 pounders), crappie, perch, a Buffalo Drum, a carp and Tammy lost a 4-5# channel cat. We saw some short nose gar. And several water snakes. Good day of catching random fish. My goal was to catch A fish. After that, I was in a wicked good mood.
As any of you loyal readers already know, I love a good musical tune. And I like getting texts/calls/emails pushing a song or artist.
I got a message that said:
“I’m for Love” by Hank Williams Jr.
Go back and re-listen to that song. As much truth today as in 1985 when it was written. If nothing else, you got to listen to a good tune that you had damn-neart forgot about.
Thanks. True, very true. We forget how big of a star that HW jr was.
I don’t see my brothers on a day2day basis. And I don’t need to. But I always look forward to the next family gathering. There will always be some trash talking amongst us brothers and the wives get to cuss & discuss as well. I’m just glad that my parents got it right the first time–ME–and there was enough genetic power left to make two really cool brothers. Good job Mom & Dad!
I may have had a bad dietary experience with those Xtreme HOT pickle bitez that I was bragging about. Do not put one of these pickles on a tortilla chip, then a piece of fajita meat, then some hot salsa and then a dab of Tobasco. It tasted REALLY good!! But the next day, I felt the heat!!!
