Okies have special words which describe everything important..., like maters for tomaters, taters for potaters, skeeters for mosquiters. And, don't forget the one thing Okies are very knowledgeable about..., twisters! (tornadoes, from the song Oklahoma, where the wind comes roarin' down the plain.)

What I want to know is why someone hasn't commented on the State Bird of Oklahoma? Its on the new quarter for Oklahoma. Its the Scissortail.

Nice Pic mkfarnam! Thanks!

I've never been in a twister, but; I've been under one as it passed overhead. A big one from Texas. It came thru Midland, Odessa, Wichita Falls, the eastern edge of Lawton, on up towards Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Joplin Mo.

In a future posting, I might tell you about another big one from Texas. A Texas lady I met on the internet, which I decided to visit in Louisville, near Dallas. I know they raise em big in Texas, even if they're home grown, Texas finest, but; this one took the cake! Six foot four, she made three of me, and I'm six foot two! Heck, she'd squish me flat! Her little finger was three times bigger than my thumb! I've never before or since seen any lady that big! About 900 pounds, all Texan, married, two kids, wanting a clean relationship with a Sunday School teacher type guy..., long term, no secrets, etc. when she's seeing another man.

In disgust, I turned around and left Texas again in my rear view mirror. When I got home, she had left me a message, hoping our lil' encounter wouldn't ruin our relationship. Ya..., right! I said, as I crawled into bed! Now, I knew why she didn't want any guy to know what she looked like on the internet. Off hand, I'd say she was slightly full figured!

I love scissor-tailed flycatchers. Are they related to the mockingbird?

We have Eastern Blue Birds here too! Not the best pic, but I saw one out at Dad's place a couple of weeks ago:

Ok so first off I will never ask about any farm-like pictures again. Even if they surprise the hell out of me since appearently I'm a "city boy".

Someone was talking about the Oklahoma quarter at work the other day. Glad to be able to tell them why theres a two tailed bird on the back.

StillwaterTownie: Thanks for those picture of OSU. It's nice to see more pictures of the place where I am going to spend the next four years of my life.

And Ms. Davis if you have any papers that you need to pass out to the class I'll be the first to volunteer. Also tell all the other kids to stop picking on me! (Yes I am tattling)
