Oooooo-klahoma . . .

. . . where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain!
I'm here in my husband and kids' home state. (Sam was born in Altus, Will in Oklahoma City and Laura in Lawton.)
Me, I'm a Texan. But I DO love Oklahoma. Down to earth people. Some pretty countryside - in some parts.
It just feels good to be here.
Here is a little Oklahoma history:
Set aside as Indian Territory in 1834, the region was divided into Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory on May 2, 1890. The two were combined to make a new state, Oklahoma, on Nov. 16, 1907.
On April 22, 1889, the first day homesteading was permitted, 50,000 people swarmed into the area. Those who tried to beat the noon starting gun were called “Sooners,” hence the state's nickname.
