DealBreaker...


I wrote this in 2006...  Enjoy!




There's a bright golden haze on the meadow,
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye,
An' it looks like its climbin' clear up to the sky.
OOOOoooh what a beautiful morning,
OOOOOoooooh what a beautiful day,
I've got a wonderful feeling,
Everything's going my way.
We went to Discoveryland over the weekend. It's an Oklahoma treasure nestled in the Osage Hills, an outdoor amphitheater that puts on a wonderful production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!

Drawbacks: It’s hot!
 Freakin' hot!!!!
The seats are too close together!
And you touch the sweaty person next to you... so gross!!!!
And it is hard to find!!
FYI Discoveryland managers: SIGNAGE!!

HUGE SIGNAGE!!!!

And an easy access map would be nice!
But please kids, don’t let that stop you from going... the Hilton in Tulsa has a package and provides transportation.

Being an Okie, you would think I have would have seen this long before now… they have been doing this for 31 years. I thought I was going to have a hard time with it becuz I'm so emotional... I get all choked up when I hear that song as it is…
OOOOOooooooklahoma,
where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain.

But I held my own until the end when the horses went runnin’ by, one with the American flag and the other with the Oklahoma flag… That was all it took!
The tears start to roll with Pride!
A must do if you pass thru Tulsa!!



Always leave them laughin’…

Roy and I took a dip in the pool… well we floated.
I don’t swim… not one lick.
I have almost drown twice… so… we float.
Roy decided to get out and look around to see what the neighbors can see and I decided to empty out the water on my floaty… I was trying so hard not to get my hair wet.
I went to the ladder and emptied the water out and positioned it just so and got on. I lost my balance and under I went!!
I came up coughin’ and sputterin’!!
When I looked around to see where my “rescuer” was, Roy was leanin’ on the fence with his hand on hip, shakin’ his head, ”So much for NOT getting your hair wet!”
And that when I decided I have had enough pooltime!
I went to the ladder and slipped off the floaty and lost my footin’!
I kicked that damn ladder with my right foot and in the commotion I kicked it again with my left foot and went under again!!!
My “rescuer” was just standin’ there shakin’ his head.
“If we had been dating, THAT would be the deal-breaker!”

Kiss my ass, Roy!

OOOOooooooh
what a beautiful morning,
OOOOOooooooh what a beautiful day,
I've got a wonderful feeling,
Everything's going my way.
