#25: [RBRT] Oklahoma

By this point in the trip I can successfully say that I have no idea what day of the week it is and NO clue what number the day is. I rarely planned more than a few hours in advance, sometimes that worked for me, sometimes not so much. I anticipated not being able to go to Stillwater because I had several people that I wanted to see in other parts of Oklahoma, things didn't work out so I headed to Stillwater to catch up with some folks. High points the Okie portion of my trip....

#1 - NEW BOOTS! I've had my sights on these boots for a little over a year now. I talked myself out of them once and I thought I might be able to pass them up again until I got to Joe's in OKC Stockyards and found only 2 pairs left....one in my size and one not in my size. Yep, couldn't say no. Should I have buyer's remorse? yes. Do I? nope! I LOVE them!

#2 - Friends Family I got to see tons of people that I miss very much!!!!! I am so thankful that so many people really made an effort to make time to see me even though it was smack dab in the middle of the week. One of the reasons that I love Oklahoma so much, the people are great!

#3 - Food. I ate Cattlemen's.....twice, Braum's and El Vaq. You are safe to assume that I brought back a few extra pounds with me.

#4 - Orange! I love Stillwater, its full of orange, its full of happiness. 

I had the opportunity to go to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, which I'm ashamed to say I never went to while I actually lived in Stillwater. What a neat museum and I saw a few folks who I know personally. What an honor to know great National Champions, plus I was informed (on Facebook that I am cool by association so that is even better!)

It really is God's Country.


  1. Ahhh, love it all. Especially the boots and the Stillwater photos.
