FYI I am a transplanted Okie, transplanted. Now living in the EST. Born in WA state during WWII by Okies who then moved back to OK, where I more or less grew up in Chickasha until I joined the army at age 16. Family still lives all around the state. Anything I might say about OK is very dated. Johnson was president the last time I lived in the state. For reasons not related to the state that year was hell on earth!

I could tell you horror stories about "shady!" My stepmother still lives at Tabler. One bro. in Verden. 2-3 half sisters and one half bro. in "Chickentown." Can't remember where the others live. I have a total of 10 siblings.

I have been away so long, I cannot find one house out of 5 that I lived in, in Chickasha on google earth. Lot of vacant lots. The one I would really like to see is the house I lived in with my bride in '57. Another vacant lot. She went home to the Lord in '81.

Last time I was in Duncan was an accident. I was coming to Chickasha, from Ft Lewis, WA, on emergency leave, went to sleep on the bus out of OKC woke up in Duncan. Had to wait for the next bus back. Early 60s.

I was in a rush to get home, my father was expected tp die at any moment, all I can remember is there was an Army recruiter nearby who I asked to take me to Chickasha. He refused that was "out of his area." So much for brothers in arms. It would have been between '61 and '63. Those were the years I was at Ft Lewis.

I started mowing ages ago... at least a week, anyway.

It's officially bug season again. I've got those blasted black misbegotten hybrid things that look like a cross between a grasshopper and a roach flying in at night. Dang things are a lot clumsier than last year's crop - they clunk and riccochet like pinballs when they hit my monitor, and bounce off of me!

... toddles off to see if ebay sells geiger counters ...
