Ohhklahoma!

Hello again! After my last post, I put the blog away as I flew back to the states for some quality family time. First stop… Oklahoma!

Although I was raised in California, I’ve been coming back here for years so it’s very familiar to me. To the several people who have never seen this place and for all of my amazing friends abroad (who haven’t taken the time to research “middle America”), here is a quick look at the country life in Oklahoma.

This is looking at the main street of central Agra. When I say “main” or “central”, I mean the only road in town that has THE school, THE gas station, THE post office and THE cafe.

These were all taken from the road traveling in-between Agra to the next “big city” called Stillwater.

Almost to Stillwater and we’ve got some neighborly competition!

Okie (pronounced Oh-Kee) – A native or inhabitant of Oklahoma. The term Okie is usually used in slang describing an uncivilized person, a redneck, or a person from Oklahoma. Usually used in the negative.

Sonic is one of the top selling fast food joints around here. It still uses the old fashion style of parking at an open spot in front of the restaurant and waiting for the waitress to come out to you. Some of them still wear roller skates!

Main street of Stillwater. Adorable!

Funny sights I thought I’d share.

I found these at the local gym… Only in Oklahoma.
