That's question this week for The Ladies at RHOK Monday LinkUp Thingy.
You are more than welcome to participate even if you do not live in the Great State of Oklahoma.
I was at the dentist office in Claremore... wonderin' where Roy was.
That's where my story is....
Roy was actually in OKC. He was sittin' in a classroom at the Trainin' Center, a mile away. Just like doctors and teachers have to take classes... continuin' education type classes... Cops do too.
Ironically, he was learnin' "how to handle an incident"... Which was about to happen.
He never heard the explosion.
He never felt it either.
People always say, "I felt it clear down south Norman!"
I am skeptical about that!
He said someone came in and said, "Saddle up Boys. We've got to go!"
He spent the next 3 days workin' security around the site.
And givin' the FBIMen fits.... long story I can't tell.
For those that do not know it...but Roy Hightower is a pain in the ass!!
Remember that big NewYorkReporter was skeptical about the abilities of the OklahomaCountySD of catchin' whoever was capable of a crime of this magnitude, becuz they were a mounted patrol??
Isn't there a mounted patrol for Central Park?? DumbBitch!
And then it was one of Roy's Posse that actually caught McVeigh.
The girls and I were glued to the TV for any and all news briefs, just to see if we could see him on TV. EdithAnne jumped up, "Right There!! that's him!!! Look at the way he's standin' and kicked his toe!"
I have no idea if it was him or not but she felt better.
And when he came home she ran outta the house and hugged him 'round the neck... like photo of that woman that ran across the tarmac to hug her solider that had returned from Vietnam. You youngin' may not have seen that photo. But that how EdithAnne greeted Roy.
Rememberin' that always make me cry.
And that's all I'm gonna say about that.
There was one man that I have always wondered about, what happened to him after that day. He was a police officer and he was runnin' to the site. But when they thought there was another bomb, he ran back. The last I saw of him, he was leanin' over the hood of a truck with his head down... like he couldn't take any more runnin'. Or he was too stressed to do any thing else but lay his head down.
I have never been to the Murrah Building Memorial.
I'm too emotional.
I couldn't keep it together at Pearl Harbor... and readin' about the sinkin' of the Oklahoma.
I had to leave the buildin'.
I managed to get thru the Alamo okay... I don't know why.
I'm An Okie Thru and Thru.
