Oklahoma {Chickasha}

Photobucket

Saturday we went to visit Chickasha Oklahoma, where my Great Grandma Lois was born. The older part of it is mostly run down, with a few shops scattered, and many of the old signs still remain. Like the pool hall sign, best ever perhaps?

We went to a couple antique shops, where I found a real treasure: A huge brown carved bakelite bracelet for $60. I was looking at a few plain ones in a case at the same price, and as I was walking away the shopkeeper pulled the carved one out from a dark covered up corner of the case. Had I seen it? No. Did I want it?

 Um, yes.

And we made a kitty friend. I really wanted to take him home. Such a sweetie.

I'm absolutely loving your tour through Oklahoma, being a proud Okie myself :) Isn't it a hauntingly beautiful state? Should you find yourself in Tulsa, you've got a guide right here! Travel well!

I'm not sure I've ever posted here before, but I love your blog! The pictures and style are so fun to follow :)

Plus the cat in the last photo here looks exactly like my host family's old cat. It's a small world :)

How did you get all those great pictures of Cattlemen's and not take a picture of the doors with the steer's head on them?!?

I adore how you find kitties just about everywhere you go (and friendly ones to boot!), and that you share them with us. So sweet and delightfully special.


Oodles of hugs,
