Oklahoma...


...where the wind comes sweeping down the plain....

was beautiful today!

As you may (or may not) know, Sam and I go north of the Red River every month for our business meetings in Oklahoma City.

The drive home today was particularly pretty... with all of those Indian Paintbrush. (That's my favorite wildflower.)

Oh, and here is a picture on I35 going south, just north of the Turner Falls area....
[That picture doesn't quite capture the beauty I experienced when I snapped it.]

-----
I had my camera ready also yesterday on the way INTO 'The City'...

I have become a true fan of the Sooner State.
Well, my husband is an Okie, so there's that wonderfulness.
Oh, and my kids are, too (even MORE wonderfulness).
And I have found that MOST Okies are great folks. Down to earth. Real.
And much of the countryside is beautiful. The part that is not (southwest Oklahoma) is beautiful on the inside.

It's a good thing I like it...
tomorrow we go back...
to get Sam's laptop...
that he accidently left there.

Beautiful wildflower photos. I have to agree with you about the good people of Oklahoma. I've never met a person from OK who wasn't the salt of the earth. I also agree about the wonderfulness of husbands who hail from Oklahoma. Mine is from there. Did you know that?

Sorry about the second trip for the laptop today. I'm glad he didn't lose it, though if he did, I'm sure Grant would be happy to sell him another one, LOL!

Good post! I always look forward to you blogging.

Love the indian paintbrush picture. Love you, too.

Have a safe drive back today -- too funny, but lucky it was recovered! ;)
