    Happy 100th Oklahoma! (??)

    Here in Oklahoma, we started celebrating the centennial for statehood on November 16. The problem is that the 100th anniversary of statehood is not until 2007. Still, there have been centennial festivals and fireworks, laser shows, and all sorts of hoopla. However, this seems about right since we are the Sooner state.

    With the sweeping changes in Congress, we could get reverted back to a territory before we reach our 100th birthday...you never know.

    Stop in to wish the Sooner State a happy birthday and tell me what you know about Oklahoma, or impressions you have about the state.

    Grandpa Simpson said, "It'll be a cold day in hell before I recognize Oklahoma!"

    (or was that Missouri?)

    My impressions of the state? Make sure you go to the bathroom before leaving Big Cabin headed to Dallas...Lake Eufaula can make you dance!

    You can't drive on I-44/40 in OKC without running into road construction.

    The panhandle is......different.

    Grand Lake of the Cherokees has some good fishing.

    Listen to the weatherman when he says, "This is a dangerous storm. Once again, the National Severe Storm Forecast Center has issued a Tornado Warning..."

    There's an oil well on the state capitol grounds.

    It's really windy, since it lies between Kansas City and Dallas...since the Chiefs blow and the cowboys suck, there is a strong north wind during football season.

    A lot of the whiner fans like Oklahoma...the musical, not the state.

    I've got some kind of relative on my mother's side living in Ponca City, think a 2nd cousin or something.

    My father was born in Texas, 12 miles from the OK border. Back in 1918, the roads weren't paved, and only 3000 people lived in a 25-mile radius. It's pretty much the same today.

    The money from the toll roads should be used to repair the roads.

    "Do Not Drive Into Smoke"

    Get on the Road, to Buffalo Run Casino...

    Midway rest stop...when I was a kid, I loved stopping there, walking above the highway. Once they had a HJ there, and a McD's.

    The Joplin Spook Light has been seen in Oklahoma, a few miles west of it's normal location.

    Oklahoma is Choctaw for "Land of the Red Man". We will probably be sanctioned by the NCAA.

    Making people appreciate the rest stop at mile marker 1 as you enter Missouri on I-44.

    I find their men to be very gullible, and their women, especially those that have relocated there from another state to be very desirable!

    I spit on you, you evil spawn of the dark continent. I shall come to your village and burn it down and watch you scream in anguish as your sackcloth and swine are consumed in flame.
