Husband came home last night and it is good to have him back.
His birthday is 8 days after mine in the same year. I was a week early and he was a day late, which means we were due on the same day. I always enjoy that. He got his birthday present a few days early. It is a Traditional Les Paul Sunburst.
I took a nice walk this morning along the Oklahoma River. Not too many years ago, the Oklahoma River used to be called the North Canadian River and was not much more than a ditch. It regularly flooded after rains and dried to a trickle the rest of the time. They damned it up, renamed it and it looks tidy, if canal-ish.
Much of the area I walked in, today, used to be part of the flats. In the past 10 - 15 years they've cleared out the slums, cleaned up the river, put in hiking trails and patrol it regularly to keep it safe.
Big relieved sigh...
Those are some serious teeth marks.
This is not the best view of the Oklahoma City skyline but it is a nice one.
Under the bridges crossing the river, you can see swallows’ nests.
The Scissor-tail Flycatcher is the Oklahoma state bird.
So after spending a bit of time enjoying a slice of Oklahoma, including the state bird and state tree, and humming a song from the musical whose name is the state song ("Oh what a Beautiful Morning," from OKLAHOMA!), I indulged myself in another state staple – a cheeseburger from Sonic.
