"The True Story"

The following (and the information in the linked 'Tip') is an extract from an article by Thomas Repp for the Oklahoma Route 66 Association (Their copyright).

Many people never quite get his story straight, but the Blue Whale of Catoosa never seems to mind.

"I just saw another news article," says current whale co-owner, Dee Dee Davis Belt. "And it said my dad built the whale for my mom as a wedding present. I see this written in newspapers; I see this written in books. And it's just not right!"
