Oklahoma In One Day

Okay, so maybe Oklahoma in two days, if you count that we spent the night in Sallisaw at the KOA. We got on the road around9:30 a.m., and passed the time listening to some blues CD’s and talking. We do our best talking while we are riding down the road, so I guess it’s a good thing we like to do that.

There is not much to see in Oklahoma. It’s pretty flat and rural, except for Oklahoma City where there is so much traffic it makes me feel like I’m going to throw up. We arrived in Shamrock, Texas around 5:oo p.m., just in time to have the BEST ribeye steak ever at Big Vern’s Steakhouse. Here is some of the countryside in eastern Oklahoma for your viewing pleasure, accompanied by Blind Mississippi Morris on the CD player:

About Karen

She writes about her life of living full time in an RV, eating a gluten free diet, things she does for fun, and things that are important to her. She makes you look at photos of her grandchildren, talk about her husband's survival of oral cancer, and shows you things she has made. You know you want to look.

    Oaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaka HOMA
    where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain
    And the wavin’ wheat can sure smell sweet
    When the wind comes right behind the rain.
    Oklahoma, Ev’ry night my honey lamb and I
    Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk
    Makin’ lazy circles in the sky.

    We know we belong to the land
    And the land we belong to is grand!
    And when we say
    Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!
    We’re only sayin’
    You’re doin’ fine, Oklahoma!
    Oklahoma O.K.

    Just a little music theory today 🙂

    Sure glad y’all didn’t get into any of the bad weather that grew out in OK today and is heading our way….be safe my Seester <3

  2. It is fun having a drive in USA except it takes a while to get used to being on the wrong side of the road.

  3. Oh, the good old road trips. I miss mine but was glad to be part of yours. I pressed play on your video, not knowing the speakers were turned to the top and blasted your rolling down the road trip, lol.

    It looks like you are having traveling weather. Glad to hear all is well.

  4. Welcome to TX.

  5. Glad you missed all the bad weather in OK & AR…you got out of there just in time. We have a son who is a high school football coach in Muskogee. Thanks for the drive down memory lane — have driven that same patch of I-40 many times…from AR to NM. God bless & safe travels!

  6. Hi Karen, good to see you again. Thanks for the new link. I will be following you here now. Trust you’re all well. Blessings and (((hugs))) Jo
