Excellent post, Chickrae. Your experience rings true with my time in the Owasso area as well.

And I wanted to add that I think you are right on the money about the Southern hospitality present in Oklahoma. To me, Oklahoma is a perfect and very unique balance of Southern/Southwestern/Western influences, with the Southern influence carrying the most weight.

Anyhow, I just wanted to give you a thumbs up on that as I do believe it is helpful for people moving to a different area to know the culture/background of the place they are moving to. With the exception of the Midwest, although I traveled quite extensively through the Midwest, I've lived in every major region (West Coast and East Coast, Deep South, and of course the South-Central which Oklahoma/Texas are a part of) of the United States. No matter where I lived, it always amazed me to see the difference in culture throughout our great nation. The positive respects of each cultural disinctiveness (regardless of region) always outweighed the negative.

Blessings.
