Digging it in Oklahoma

Digging it in Oklahoma this weekend, we had started a remodel on the back yard.  The bushes and vines had been neglected way too long and the removal process brought about a trip to the country to recycle the organic overgrowth. 
It took several hours to drag the plant life around to the front and slowly compact it into the truck.  It was a great opportunity to get some sun and start to develop a tan for the summer.  The weather was great with the Oklahoma sunshine beaming down, yet it was still cool enough that it wasn't uncomfortable. 
Upon leaving Warr Acres, we decided to stop and and have lunch at Ann's Chicken Fry on Route 66.  If you have not had the pleasure of eating a chicken fried steak at Ann's, you might want to check into it.

  As we pulled into Ann's just west of Maxey's Cycles we noticed the dealer had a band playing, and what appeared to be some of the girls from a local restaurant chain outside to help entertain customers and passers by.  I carefully snapped a shot or two as we left the restaurant thinking about sticking around a little while and watching the band. 

But we were on a mission to get the truck emptied and to have an early Mothers Day with my mom.  We proceeded down Hefner Parkway south and made our way through Tri-City,Newcastle, Blanchard, and past Middleburg. 
Finally upon arrival at the farm, we were met by what appeared to be bull headed pet.  He was basking in the sunlight just outside the house.
We spent several hours at the farm and started our way back home.  We saw many small additions south of Blanchard, with only a few houses.  We saw a pasture full of Oklahoma buffalo, and lots of other things as we cruised down the Oklahoma Highway.
As we got back to Warr Acres, we couldn't help but take a picture of the duck family as they waddled down the street.  The little ducklings are growing fast, and will soon be on their own.  Just like many of the Oklahoma High School Graduates that are finishing their last year in high school this month.

It was a very good day.  What started out about work, turned into a vacation trip.  Seeing a lot of interesting places and things in Oklahoma, and leaving me with lots of thoughts and ideas about the future.  It had been a great Saturday in Oklahoma.  Just doing what Oklahoma does.  That's why we are Digging it in Oklahoma.

  Bringing you good news about Oklahoma,
