  • Highways

    If Texas is number one in state highways then Oklahoma could easily be number two but when it comes to bridges it would appear to me to have the best currently in use. For instance: Tarrant County (Fort Worth) has 237 bridges that inspection reveals to be obsolete or defficient the exact same number for the STATE of Oklahoma. In fact the U. S. 66 /...

  • Oklahoma State Flag

    The Oklahoma state flag honors over 60 groups of Native Americans and their ancestors. The blue field comes from a flag that had been carried by the Choctaw soldiers during the American Civil War. The center shield is the battle shield of an Osage warrior.

  • Oklahoma-The Sooner State

    Oklahoma is nicknamed the "Sooner State." This is because in 1889, the Indian Territory was opened to settlers. Thousands of people lined up on the border and, when the signal was given, they raced into the territory to claim their land. Some people went in early to claim their land. They became known as Sooners.

Both novels are set in...

    The nice people are at the top of the list. I love the thunderstorms and the gorgeous sunsets. Spring time when the redbud and dogwood trees are blooming is beautiful - long growing season there. There are several nice lakes for boating, skiing, sailing, jetskiing, swimming and fishing: Grand Lake of the Cherokees, Tenkiller, Texoma are my...

    The beautiful scenery in the Ouachita Mountains, located in the southeastern part of the state. Although the fall leaf season had just passed its peak, it did not matter because the scenery was still fantastic! Photo of the Red River which marks the border with Texas, taken as we were leaving Oklahoma, near Idabel as the sun was getting low. We...

    2001 has brought so many fond memories and most of them in Tulsa have been with my good friend Allison! This pic from St. Patrick's Day was loads of fun, even though we went the non-traditional celebratory route and went clubbing. I will always have fond memories from The id! I will always laugh at our silly predicaments that we get ourselves...

    When people visit Oklahoma, obviously I take them to TU's campus! But great places to check out as well are Cherry Street and the Brookside area--both have great restaurants and unique bars. In the warmer months, everyone eats at restaurants with patios, and just soaks up the atmosphere... My fondest memories all revert back to college...

    I visited Tulsa to attend a meeting. The hotel was connected via a skywalk to a shopping center. When we went to the 'food court' to eat, we had a choice of three fast food counters. Most of the shops were vacant and boarded up. I have since heard that the shopping center itself has gone under.A lot of Tulsa was vacant and boarded up. Homes,...

    My fondest memory of growing up in Guthrie is living on a dairy farm, having all of that open space, seeing nature first hand with the animals having babies. Fishing on the many lakes and ponds with my father and brothers.

    Go visit Lawton, Ok, I lived there for 7 years and loved it. There is a very, for lack of a better word, country, attitude there. The people are very friendly and giving there. I would go visit Ft Sill, Ok, just north of Lawton, that is the base where all artillery personnel are trained for the Army. Lots of intersting war relics and demonstrations...

    You must leave quickly... Just kidding. You should go eat at this Thai and Italian Restuarant in Norman. It's off I-35 and Robinson, in Robinson Crossing. It's a nice little family restaurant. When I leave Norman, I miss being in a bed and breakfast kind of city. There's really not much rush hour traffic. It's a great town to commute from.
