Mickey Gilley and Johnny Bush

WOW…what a winter we are having! Cold, wind and ice…ready for spring. The race for office is very demanding and tiring but will be worth it. Liz and I have put up every 4×4 sign that went up all over this county. Never realized how big this county was until I started traveling it meeting people and putting up signs.

In the mean time, I am promoting a concert with Mickey Gilley and Johnny Bush on the 21st of this month in Whitney TX. I am looking forward to seeing both good friends for an evening of REAL Country Music.

Happy Trails and God Bless All

ELECT KILROY

Kilroy for District Clerk….

Well, things do have a way of turning around. This time last year I would have never thought of running for an office but here I go. Imagine that. Liz and I visited with Willie last Friday night at Winstar casino and he was surprised, but very enthusiastic since I am running in his home county. We are in full campaign mode

We do have two new pups on the ranch. Our beautiful border collie died in August so LIz got a new border collie pup for her birthday. She is 5 months old now and quite a handful. Our other pup is a lab.

We hope that all of you had a great Thanksgiving and an equally Merry Christmas. May 2014 be good even though politically it isn’t looking good. We can only hope and pray!
We will keep you posted on the political race. Early voting is in February.

May God Bless You All and Blessings come your way.

Happy Trails

All Is Well at The Cross K

Well….the title says it all.  Not much going on around here but needed rain, which has shut down our riding.  No shows right now and looking forward to spring.  I hope you all have been stocking up on ammo….that is if you can find it!  22’s were always like BB’s, but  there aren’t any to be found around here, can’t believe it.  At the price of these little darlings, there hasn’t been any practice shooting going on around here.  We have a lot of coyotes around here and I keep hinting for Liz to buy me a “prediator call” so I can call them up and shoot them, but so far, I don’t have one.  They are getting folks dogs and new born calves.  Of  course, they don’t come around here with our dogs.

We do have a new addition to the family….a “Henny”.  That is a donkey for a mother and a horse for a father.  Liz being Liz, trying to feed all of the hungry animals around here (and I support her) found an abounded “donkey” down the road from us in a fenced in field.  Seems someone just dropped her off in the field and left her.  Since she had no grass, Liz carried hay every afternoon to her.  After a month, she finally got permission to just go get her.  Seems she is half tammed, once cornered, she will let you halter and lead her.  She walked up in the horse trailer just fine.  Liz videoed her walking behind the horses on the horse walker… on her on….and posted it to youtube.  Go to : youtube and type in: henny on a horse walker and scroll down until you see Eizabeth Kilroy and there she is.  She is cute.  Funny thing about her is our neighbors have two donkeys and she will not have any thing to do with them at all.  Sticks right with the horses.  I looked out the other day and Liz had her in the round pen on Trigger using her for cutting practice.  I wouldn’t put it past that girl to try and ride the little thing!

Anyway…that’s it.  Do stop in now and then as I do have some irons in the fire and you all will be the first to know of any projects that come to be.

Happy Trails and God Bless

RFD TV

Hey guys and gals.

Just a quick note to explain what some of you have seen on RFD’s  Tru Country.  We did the “Kilroy Show”  three years ago at “Willie’s Place”, before it went into bankruptcy.  We tried to put that show on a couple of networks, but could not come up with big sponsors to bring it forth.  GAC said they wanted it at that time, but later backed out.

What some of you have  been seeing on RFD’s Tru Country is spots from that show.  Right now they are doing promos for ”The best of” Mickey Gilley and Charley Pride.  Sometime soon, I will do an interview with Heather Myles, the hostess of Tru Country to talk about the two hour show we did.  This will kick off the sale of two DVD’s…one Gilley and other artist and one of Charley Pride and other artist.

Again, I have nothing to do with Tru Country except to help promote the up coming DVD’s of Gilley and Pride.  Check out the programming on RFD and tune in to Tru Country and see when you can catch one of these promos…or tape it, you’ll enjoy it.  Mostly, be sure to stay tuned to see when the DVD’s will be for sale.  I will post on this site when I do the interview so you can tune in.

Thanks Amigos and God Bless

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Hey everyone

It’s Thanksgiving again and I hope we all put aside a moment to reflect on what we have to be thankful for.  If you’re paying taxes… you have a job, washing clothes..you have clothes to wear, gaining weight…you have plenty of food, mowing a yard…you have a place to live.  There are many things we seldom think about that are “hidden” blessings in our life, we just have to look for them.  

Liz and I are having a Cajun Thanksgiving this year.  My daughter lives  in LA. and we are having Thanksgiving with her and her husband.  Liz has never had a Cajun Thanksgiving, so she has something to look forward to.  Someone will stay here to look after the horses and dogs while we are gone.  Not much to report except my knee is finally doing better.  It has it’s ups and downs, but I will beat this thing and that’s that.  I’m back to riding pretty regular and doing almost anything I want.  It has been a long struggle.

This is going to be a short note this time around.  Everybody be safe on the highways if you are traveling.  Enjoy your time with family.

Adios and God Bless each of you.

Kilroy and LizKilroy, Eddie

Nothing New….

Hey Amigo’s

 

Sorry it has been so long, but as the heading says…nothing new.  My knee has given me more trouble than expected, but all will be well as I am back to riding now and helping poor Elizabeth around here. Bless her, she had ALL of the mowing, feeding, stacking hay out of the field, doctoring horses, hooking up horse trailers, driving me around, helping with my thearpy, keep house, on and on. She is a God send to me…best of the west and better than the rest! I just wish I could have roped her many years sooner than I did.

 

While I was laid up, I had a couple of projects in the fire.  I hope I will be discussing these in the near future as Liz and I are very excited about them. 

We have managed to get enough hay cut this year to do us, but the second cutting was thin due to yet another minor drought, nothing like last year, but this year goes down in history as the “second” hottest summer…last year was the hottest.  Dang this hot weather! Bad on horses, dogs and people.  We have gotten some rain and as I write, it is raining for the second day, thank God.

Liz did well sorting this year but quit when it was just to hot, even in covered arena’s. She missed one buckle by a miserable 3 points. I am sure she will be starting up soon.

 

Happy Trails and God Bless…..Adios, Kilroy

Mow Mow Mow

Well, that is how we feel around here…mow every 3 days. …in MARCH for Pete’s sake.  Last summer we all burned up and did not mow but about twice, now Liz has mowed the yard 3 or 4 times already in the middle of March.  We aren’t complaining mind you, grateful that we won’t be shopping for hay this year and there is plenty of grass and it is barely spring!  We don’t usually get this much grass until well into April.

The bluebonnets  are popping up everywhere and early as well.  As most of us, we had a very unusual winter, or lack thereof.  The lack of cold produced a bumper crop of weeds in the hay field which we have just sprayed  last week.  We have 5 acres we have been trying to get grass on for 3 years now…first time, bad sprigs, second time, drought and now this year is the abundance of rain not allowing the tractors into the field.  Some day we will have victory over that field and have a beautiful green pasture and I’m praying it will be this year.

Liz and I host a team sorting at our church, Open Range Cowboy Church in Whitney TX.  We kicked this season off a couple of weeks ago and it was great.  We enjoy team sorting and as competitive as Liz is, she is already talking of going to several in the north Texas area.

I am getting a brand new knee tomorrow, Wed. 21st.  I was thinking about putting my old knee in a jar and selling it on e-bay….maybe I just might get a hit or two.  I am thrilled to get this over and have a new knee, has a 30 year warranty and I plan on seeing it through.

Upon closing, the rescue colt, Pistol, that we have talked so much about had to be put down this week.  He was born with one leg a little crooked.  We tried to fix this by corrective trimming, but as he aged, it worsened.  He was nearly two years old and it broke our heart to do that, but we had no choice as he was starting to limp and could not run without tripping.  The vet said it would eventually seize and the inevitable would happen, so there was no sense in pro longing.  He was the product of a starving mother, born malnourished.    Shame on these people and all like them!  He is at peace and rest here on the ranch.

That does it folks.  We hope everyone is fine and hanging in there…we are.

Happy Trails and God Bless you all
