Only in Oklahoma #1

I moved to Oklahoma 15 years ago this summer. On the surface you wouldn't think Oklahoma is that much different than Kansas (where I grew up), but, really, my friends, it is. I won't go into detail. But this is one of the things that makes me say to myself, "only in Oklahoma."

I seriously followed that truck for about 3 miles...totally expecting that big ol buck (is that what that is...I'm not really fluent in deer/hunting lingo) to jump up and out of the back of the car and directly onto mine and get all crazy. But as I was taking the pic of this monstrosity, I realized that bigger danger was that the driver of that truck was more likely to jump out of the truck and get all wicked crazy on me.

Only in Oklahoma...nice. Maybe I'll start having a monthly "Only in Oklahoma" post.

Disclaimer: I will say that Oklahoma has that southern charm about it that is missing in all parts of Kansas, even the larger cities.

And by southern charm, I do not mean 100 degree days with 95% humidity from April 1-Nov. 1. I mean charm.

Keep it classy, Oklahoma

Ok, I'll stop.

I really do love Tulsa.

There is a definite culture turn as you go over the border between the combination cowboy-southerner Oklahoma and the cowboy - midwesterner Kansas. Kansas small towns are just a little neater and tidier and the difference in the oil and gas guys is big. Oklahoma still has the boomer lets go out and party attitude, the Kansas guys want you save your name tag to save money on next year's meeting.
