My great-great grandparents arrived in Oklahoma on a covered wagon and most of my family has been there since. I left during college and then married a Navy man, but we are doing our best to get back there. Even though I've been gone for well over a decade, I still consider myself an Oklahoman.

My Dad was born and raised in Waurika, (now lives in Duncan) my Grampa, Great-Grampa and supposedly my Great-Great Grampa are all buried here. Does that count?
Being Okie is a state of mind LR...

I was raised in Miami, went to college in Stillwater, then lived in Oklahoma City until I was 60, in 2005. I'm still an Okie, despite living in western Washington - - and I intend to move back just as soon as I can!!

Thanks, I feel better. You don't know what a burden it was living with an Okie heart and trying to survive a west-coast lifestyle! At last I am free! http://bestsmileys.com/dancing/7.gif (broken link)

Talking Bred and Born here.....

I was born here, both my parents were born here, my grandmothers were born here. The Grandpa's were from Arkansas (but so close to OK could be considered OK) and Mississippi. I'm so Okie my blood runs red dirt. Is that possible? Sure it is. Both of my grandmother's familys was all born here too. I have wandered a bit..but always ended up home.

Both my girls were born here too.
