Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on May 16, 2022
      May 15, 2022 is 30 years that the Dragon Lady and I have been married.  There wasn’t a conventional wedding.  We went to the courthouse in Lipscomb, TX and got hitched.  We told our parents afterwards.  Some said that it was about time, since we already had a two year old daughter.  Might not have been the proper start but I know a lot of people that started out under better conditions

Just Got Paid

Posted on April 27, 2022
     You cannot use that name “Just Got Paid” for a buck, bull, ram or boar.  Copyrighted.  I called dibs first right here on 4-26-2022.  Mine.        Now, if you want to use “Just Gotsa Get Paid”  have at it.           I don’t know where ZZ Top ranks with you people, don’t care.  That is a band that I can listen to for hours.  Bluesy, ROCK, soul, country, really

      Spent Saturday in the greater Orlando area.  Sorted through the Pfeiffer doe kids that will sell online and then sorted through all of the stock that was selling in The Exclusive sale.  Talked to a lot of people.  Even met some that I had never met before.       There was a lot of high quality goats, mainly doe kids.  It would be hard to say which one was the absolute best

         “Ha ha!  Joke’s over.  Just give me my wallet back and you can keep all of the cash in it.”          At 6 am this morning, I asked the Dragon Lady if she had my wallet.  I couldn’t find it.  I knew where I had it last.  I had been looking.  I didn’t care about the cash.  What I did care about was NOT having to cancel/renew a

Specialty Animals

     Oddly enough, this type of animal has popped up into my memory banks at least twice in the past couple of weeks.  Recently, Greg Boyer sent me a text-LATE-one night, wanting me to re-tell the story.  Then, last week I was judging the FFA creed speaking contest finals.  I asked all four kids–“What does SAE stand for?  and What is your SAE project?”   This one girl got emphatic about talking about her SAE

The Most Liked?

Posted on April 16, 2022
      My question for today– Is Jason Spence the MOST liked person in the entire livestock industry, regardless of species.  My answer is a definite and resounding YES!   One only needs to look at book-face the past week to see all of the posts, pics and stories.  Pray for the family.        Like most everyone that has crossed paths with Spence, I have spent the last week thinking of the different

         Although I am not athletic, my parents probably, maybe, should have a shrine somewhere in their attic that attests to my athletic conquests.  Like a 4th place wrestling trophy and a fishing derby championship.  I should be and maybe could have been athletic.  But I’m not.  I grew up in a town that was in the beginning stages of cultivating athletes and state championship teams.  Somehow, I went the other direction.  

Bit Scared

Posted on April 9, 2022
       Thursday evening found me getting home from the Connors State College judging contest.  The drive from Warner, OK back to Shattuck was not fun in those winds.           Since we didn’t have school on Friday, I didn’t have to be anywhere immediately that morning.  I got up and put out hay for cows and the newest venture.  I looked at stock and then headed in to take care of

        For starters, thank you to all that asked questions, inquired, talked about, bid and/or bought on the final Kelln Livestock online sale.  Us–Tammy, Kela, Duke and myself–the Kelln Klan, along with the Milligan’s held the first ever online goat sale in 2006.  We have watched and participated as the stock show world’s purchasing habits changed and changed again.  The kids have moved on.  Tammy is glad to see the end.  And
