  1. I have to admit, I’m not a big fan of Oklahoma. lol Been there, seen that, ain’t going back again. 🙂 But I enjoyed your photos.

    • Thank you for stopping by Bill and glad you liked the tour, I have been to Oklahoma only once when a friend lived in Tulsa, It was strange we brought a wine bottle to a restaurant when we went for dinner and had to keep it under the table, Oh, those dry state rules,
