16 November 2006, Happy 99th Statehood day Oklahoma! Yes, today is the 99th year of statehood for Oklahoma and during this entire next year you will be seeing many forms of celebrations as we look forward to our centennial next year. Several of you have noticed the count down board on the side bar and it represents the count down to next November 16th. I am very glad I will be home for that and be able to celebrate something in history. I had hoped to be able to present a fantastic site today to show you the history and heritage of Oklahoma, but this wasn't feasible for me here.
It's rained all day and that's what this country needs on several levels. During this last summer, you may remember that I had problems with my air conditioner not working for a couple of days. Last night, I finally decided I needed a little heat, yep, no heat. I fiddled with it for about 30 minutes with no luck and decided to just turn it off. I checked it again today following the instructions I was given, (someone that maybe I didn't know how to operate it), but it wasn't me. So now I'm waiting for someone to come by and fix it for me. Luckily I can withstand it without too much difficulty.
It's only 5:45 p.m. here and I'm already ready to go to bed. I bought two new CD's yesterday for Christmas, Bing Crosby and the Rat Pack. I haven't decided if we will decorate the office or my room any yet, that won't happen anyway until AFTER Thanksgiving.
Not much else, be safe and have a good day.

Happy Birthday OK!! Christmas With The Rat Pack is a GREAT CD!!! Of course now much else tops Bing singing Christmas tunes. In my opinion you made two very, very good selections!

Happy Birthday Oklahoma! It is truly an awesome time to be an "Okie"! I am so hopeful that you will be home in time to celebrate the Centennial with us. There's going to be so many wonderful activities and events - probably the biggest fireworks display we've ever seen - it can be our little secret, but the celebration is actually for you! Hope you get the heat working soon - just pretend your "camping out". Check the mail, you should be receiving goodies soon!
