I love this! That very first picture, of the Ladysmith, in Tish, was built (or reconstructed) by my brother and dad's construction company!.

Absolutely. I can't stand WallyWorld. I refuse to go there unless there is a middle of the night medicine emergency.

Good post. The first time I saw Kingfisher was in 1982, on my way to Enid, and it hasn't lost its charm.

Thank you so much. I didn't realize that there were any other good main streets other than Guthrie. I must check them out on the map.

couldn't rep you again.

What so bad about it? Stillwater loves Wal-Mart so much that there are two of them with a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market planned for next year.

In Stillwater, if you look at the two nearest strip malls to the Perkins Rd Wal-Mart, they are both packed with little mom and pop type stores. One of the strip malls finally put on a modern facade to cover up its dull warehouse look. In effect, the huge traffic to Wal-Mart is very good for locally started stores.

I always thought that Stillwell, Oklahoma was one of the most wonderful towns I have ever visited.

I don't think I've ever been to Stillwell. My knowledge of it is reading about the 3 little girls murdered in a Girl Scout Camp there years ago, so when I hear of Stillwell, that's what I think of. I just looked on a map and notice there is another town in Oklahoma named Maryetta, north of Stillwell. How do they keep it separate from Marietta in the southern part of the state? Surely there is some confusion.
