OKLAHOMA KID
The Oklahoma Kid Trick Roping Comedian

Agra-Fest Agriculture farm show with million of machinery displayed

Farming has came a long way since I was a back on a tractor. My first harvest job was in High school in Tonkawa for John Lucas on an open cab Gleaner Combine. Man I ate a lot of dirt.Finley we got a John Dear 4440 with AC and a cab. It was like a dream. Now I look at these $500K rigs displayed here in Enid and Im totally blown away at the technology. They are so big that they have to have 6 cameras or more to see everything that is going on. The machines are Monsters. The Transformer Movie has nothing on these boys. I met one man who mad a small Bobcat looking making that would eat a 200 foot redwood like a kid chewing gum and four wheel drive tractors that I cloud ride a house under.

This is one show I plan on attending every year just as a guest to get the thrill of big machines and technology.

 

This machine her will eat the lunch of anything in its way. It looks simple but it is anything but that. It on a track like an army tank and you can raise that head and drop it on a mammoth tree or even a house for that matter and it will chew it up into quarter size pieces. NO JOKE! I seen him do it.

The guy sitting on it is its inventor and he is simply an engineer genius. Iv seen a lot in my life but Iv never seen a meaner machine. Dont let its size fool you, you wouldn’t want to get in its way!

 

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. Will Rogers “HAPPY NEW YEARS”

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. – Will RogersWhat does that mean?

This was sent to me by a friend in 1998 and it keeps me focused so Im sharing it with you.

It says you have to actually do something with your life if you want to get somewhere. The expression used by the former cowboy Will Rogers, uses some “western” terms like being “on the right track” and would be the opposite of being “on the wrong track,” which would mean the train could not get to it’s destination.

Being “on the right track” means you are in the right place and headed the correct direction to get to your destination.

But if you are just going to sit there, you aren’t going to get anywhere. Worse yet, you will get run over by someone who is trying to get to the same place you were going to. Don’t stop being positive or get lazy just because thing are going well. Its important to always keep moving in a positive direction or on the right track all the times. Thats the Cowboy Way..

Why is effort important?

Putting forth effort is how things get done. Without effort, all you have are small, random, perturbations which amount to very little. If you want to get something done, if you want to go somewhere, you need to put in some effort.

Getting somewhere (continuing the train analogy) requires two things: a direction and some effort. The train tracks give the direction, but without effort, you just sit there. In rocketry, this is referred as failure to launch. The rocket is pointed skyward (direction) but the engine did not fire (no effort). It’s just sitting there.

Be careful of the opposite, which is high effort but no direction. This is the classic “chicken with it’s head cut off” action, lots of running around, but nothing useful is accomplished (or a rocket with no fins, spinning and going all sorts of directions).

There are two other pairings in this dual dichotomy (four square), the “no direction with no effort” (think of a tree stump) and the one we should be, the “going the right direction, applying effort” sometimes referred to as a person who is “going somewhere”.

Which one of the four do you want to be? If you already have direction, it’s time to put forth some effort, right?

Where can I apply this in my life?
For this post, I am going to presume you are already on the correct track, that you are simply lacking in application of effort. Everyone has different motivations, so I will share some of the things I have found to work in the past, and you may have to experiment to see what works for you. Ready?

For me, effort is preceded by motivation. If I am not motivated, it is much harder to put forth any appreciable level of effort. What motivates a person? For me the list (in no particular order) looks like this:

to provide for my family
to help others
to overcome a challenge
to accomplish something new (something I’ve not done before)
to grow personally
to earn a living
Make a list of your own. It will likely be incomplete, as mine almost certainly is. You can always update the list at a later time. The point is to have a list that you can refer to later on in this post.

Now make another list, of projects (or whatever it may be) where you have a direction (you’re on the right track), but you’re just sitting there (no effort, no motivation). Select one of them and look through your list of motivational factors. Which one(s) apply to this task?

How about you, have you found a good match between your project and your motivations? If so, get busy. Feel your motivation.

If you can’t find any motivation, there still is a way that I use to force the effort. Guts. Like the TV says, just do it. Get it over with. Finish it and move on. Perhaps you can add a little motivation, kind of like dessert after a meal you don’t like that much. What can you do afterwards to reward yourself for pounding out the task, for putting forth the effort? It’s worth a try, if nothing else is working.

Just like the light at the end of the tunnel isn’t always an oncoming train, you can use the whistle of the train coming down the tracks (motivation) to help you avoid getting run over (effort, or lack of it). Those projects aren’t going to complete themselves, so pick one and get it done!

Thank you John

The 2017 performances True Stories the Wild West and the 🐮 dive up the Chisholm Trail. 

This photo was taken in 1951 of the last 6 cowboys, one of whom is Frank Eaton who drove the Chisholm Trail. From left to right; Chas E. Sexton, C. E. Lemmert, B. G. Woodruff, Tom Gilbert, Rolla Goodnight and Frank Eaton better known as Pistol Pete. They started the Cherokee Strip Cowpunchers Association together in 1951. Frank Eaton was a pistolero who was known to be a wild man and not pushed to hard. There were stories he had shot 11 men. He was a quick draw and a fancy handler of the hand cannon. He worked the Wild West shows on occasion demonstrating his talents as a cowboy and pistolero along with my grandfather Orlan Tipton and my Unkle Hershel Tipton in early 1930 shows.

Viva Las Vegas w/ George Strait and the National Finals Rodeo

NFR Las Vegas,  Wrangler Booth

 

George Strait in Concert

The majority of the guest were from Texas then Oklahoma last night at the George Strait’s concert. Iv seen him every year on his tour for the last 20 years and he still draws a sell out performance. Rumor is George may appear every four months her but who really knows but George. One George’s song writer and partner Dean Dillon came out and sang with him last night. Dean is a way cool cowboy and sounds great with George. The concert was huge smash hit at the T-Moble Center with about 20,000 guest. Vegas is building a new stadium to bring in a and  seat about 150,000 and George is sure he can fill it up.

 

 

Here’s a pic of George’s Band Ace in the Hole and myself prior to a show where we were getting a few snacks before the performance. Great bunch a guys to hang out with.

Marty’s family ties to Will Rogers

In the early years of life, as a youngster, I heard my family tell many amazing stories about the 101 Ranch. Some of those stories were told by my great grandmother Delia McSpadden. She was Will Rogers cousin and often referred to him as “Willie”. I was always thrilled to listen to the stories about Col. Zack Miller and his famous 101 Ranch and how grandfather would ride a horse to work, on the ranch. Of all the times she met coisin Will her favorite story was, the one when she met up with him in Ponca City, Okla., for the unveiling of the Pioneer Woman Statue in 1930.  After the ceremony, she and the rest of the family, went to a picnic together. She recalled how Will absolutely loved the pickled watermelon they were serving, and ate enough to sink a ship. When Will visited he was never able to stay very long because of his busy schedule. Over the years she received many letters from Will, telling all about his adventures. She would keep these in her dresser tied up in a blue, silk ribbon. On certain occasions we would all gather around her as she would open the letters up ever so gently and read a few lines to us grand kids.

During these special moments is when I first started to relish the thought of becoming a wild west performer and trick roper. I drew upon these exciting stories and it created in me an urge to follow in Will Rogers footsteps…. And so I did…..

Special Performance for 2017 Chisholm Trail 150th Year Celebration

In 2017 the trail will be officially 150 year old and in celebration of the trails anniversary I will be traveling across the states telling amazing stories of the Chisholm Trail and about the super cowboys who drove the cattle north looking for their fortune.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My father told us stories of how cattle were drove up the Chisholm trail in order to fetch a better price. The cattle were only worth $4 a head  in Texas but if they they drove them north their profits could increase their profits 10 times making each cow worth about $40 a head for each full size longhorn. So many a cowboy took a chance crossing Indian Territory expecting graet rewards. The trip tested even the toughest cowboy. The cowboys had to cross rivers and pass through Native American land where they had to pay a tolls to cross or they were under fear of attack and losing everything.

In 1864 the adventurous half Cherokee Native American trader from Tennessee named Jesse Chisholm scouted out  the trail as a means to transport his goods in his wagon from one trading post to another.

I will of course be bringing hundreds of trick rope for everyone to give a spin.
