    Ed and Trudy landed in Oklahoma City Sunday night. They are parked about 2 miles from our house in the Mustang Run RV Park in Yukon, which is located in far west Oklahoma City). Effie and I went out and spent a couple of hours visiting with them Yesterday afternoon. Good visit. They are going to be in Oklahoma City about a week. We plan to get together several times. Effie and I are going to give them the royal Oklahoma welcome. Here are a couple of photos.

Ed: Gee This Oklahoma sun is bright! "Mustang Run" is a new park W/O any mature trees. Otherwise it has every ting swiming pool, clubhouse and UDERGROUND STORM SHELTER. We did have a good visit and are looking forward to additional time with David and Effie, especialy a trip to the OK Historical Museum.

Ed: Yesterday, David & Effie took us for a tour of the Yukon and Mustang Ok burgeoning residential areas Yukon and Mustang are villages within the Greater Oklahoma City Metropolitan area. On the way back he introduced us to a popular combined convenience store/ice cream shop. As we where passing one of the Flick's daughter's home, she and her husband where coming out and David stopped and introduced us.

I have been impressed with the number of churches in this area compared with other large cities we have seen during our travels.

Reminds me of the time I had a bunch of kids doing a vbs for David's Indian church. It was very hot but David bought us all ice cream at a local place. Great memory.

    Indeed it is a great memory and was a good experience. I think you made that trip in 2001. You had a really great bunch of young people with you. Anyway, I couldn't resist posting this photo. It's one taken of that trip which I've never posted anywhere. It's amazing how the passing of 16 years can bring change. We are all old codgers these days. Take a look at William's shirt. It's an actual BaptistLife.Com official tee shirt. When one comes to Oklahoma to visit Flick, he is expected to dress properly. :wink: Incidentally, Ed had on a BL.Com tee shirt when we visited them Monday. Even Ed keeps the proper protocol... :D

    John Edwards was the pastor of the church there in Chickasha. Great guy. Excellent pastor. He had an earned doctorate. I coordinated his ordination. Fellowship of American Indians Mission was the only church he pastored. He passed away a couple of years ago.

    Re: Ed & Trudy's visit to Oklahoma. We're having a great time together. Tomorrow I'm taking them to the Oklahoma Capitol complex to visit the Oklahoma History Center

The Oklahoma History Center is one of the best local/state history museums I've ever seen. I'm sure they change exhibits from time to time, but when I was there, 2007 or so, I think, it was excellent. It was quite a day, going there, and then to the Memorial at the Murrah building site. We were treated to the whole Oklahoma experience, as that evening, one of the employees of the Best Western where we were staying knocked on our door around 10:30 p.m. and very quietly, but firmly asked us to leave the room and come down to the lobby area on the bottom floor. It didn't take much convincing.

    You're right, Sandy, the Oklahoma History Center is an outstanding place to visit. I've been a member of the Oklahoma Historical Society for many years. Card carrying members get free entrance to a great many interesting historical museums and sites around the state. The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum (Murrah bombing memorial) is another of the museums we plan to visit. In addition to that, we are planning to visit the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, which is another outstanding place to visit. We're going to have a great time this week and next. It's guaranteed that Ed and Trudy will take a little bit of Oklahoma back to Florida with them...

    Side Bar: Timothy McVeigh was the terrorist who planted the truck bomb in front of the Murrah Building. He was executed on June 11, 2001. As fate would have it, I spent the night of June 10, 2001 in Tyler, Texas. I had been the guest of Bill and Marilyn Hillyer (MLovell). The next morning (6/11/01), as I drove out of Tyler going east to a CBF General Assembly, I heard the entire radio broadcast account of the execution. I still get chills from recalling that event.

Ed: Another great afternoon with David, exploring the Oklahoma History Museum. I agree with Sandy, it is an impressive facility. I also note that much of the voluminous space is dedicated to artifacts of the past 110 years.

We latter had an early dinner at a Cracker Barrel to Honor BL.com's creator Bruce Gourley. It rained hard and the wind blew with fury while we where finishing our meal But appeared to have blown over as the bill was paid. On the way back to our RV Park we encountered Traffic signals that where not working and then downed wires on one road that David wanted to take near his house there was a lot of stop and go on the road leading to our park. After he got home David called to report that at his house they had recieved 2.4 inches of rain this was in a rather short squall lasting about 20 min. and there was a lot of foliage laying around. evcery thing here seems to be in order. More of the same due tomorrow..

    Indeed it was a great afternoon of time together for long time friends. We spent about 7 hours together driving around OKC, exploring the Oklahoma History Museum, and felowshipping at Cracker Barrel. I didn't do a very good job of keeping photographic records of our time together, But here's a shot from the second floor of the museum. That's looking southwest toward the Oklahoma capitol building, which is under extensive repair. The entire east wing of the capitol building is covered with a massive canvas. I've never seen anything like that on the building.

    The airplane hanging in the foreground is a replica of the the Winnie Mae, the plane in which famous Oklahomans, Will Rogers & Wiley Post perished in that tragic crash near Point Barrow, AK in 1927.

    I did manage one shot of Ed amd myself in front of a replica of a stage coach that ran from Oklahoma Station (present day OKC) to Darlington (the original Cheyenne Arapaho tribal agency) to Fort Reno (near present day city of El Reno).

    As Ed mentioned, we enjoyed a good meal at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in honor of Bruce's all time favorite dining place. Trudy and I purchased several good books in the museum book store.

    As Ed mentioned, they have now experienced a small severe Oklahoma storm. Sara Road, the street that was blocked by downed power lines, is located 10 blocks from my house. We were forced to turn around about 50 yards from the location. (Pic #1 | Pic #2) Here's the online article. All is well. We now have power back on at our house.

    Great day. Great fellowship. Good times. We have three more places to visit over the next few days. Will report on them as they occur. Stay tuned...

Ed: Yesterday David and Effie took us to the First Baptist Church of Oklahoma City. A great worship experience. After Church we met their son Philip at the Texas Road house for a fine meal and fellowship.

Today David (monday) Trudy and I Visited the Oklahoma City, NATIONAL MEMORIAL MUSEUM, the site if the April 19 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building. I have yet to capture an adequate word or phrase to define the mix of emotions stirred by this experience. I do believe it is an experience that every American should have if at all possible .

    It's been a joy to spend time with Ed and Trudy. We've had many good conversations and have recalled many past experiences over the 25 years we've known each years we've known each other. Here is a shot of Ed and Trudy at the entrance of the Oklahoma City National Memorial.

Ed: Uh,Gerry, I think it is still God's house. I have greatly appriciate the contrbutions that H.H. made to Baptist life and to the kingdom of God in general but I do not worship him like many Okies and others.

It is however good to know that you are still around. We acepted David;s invitation to FBCOC because of its CBF connection, and my deep respect for thir having stayed tn Down Town OKC. They are still doing great work there.

    It has been a joy for Effie and me to spend time with Ed and Trudy this past week. Friday evening we went to a our favorite BBQ Restaurant in Mustang, which is located about 5 miles from our house and 6 miles from where Ed and Trudy have their RV parked. Swadley's claims to be the not only "World Famous," but also best BBQ in Oklahoma. Effie and I believe this to be true. I have a hunch that E&T agree.

    Tomorrow, I am taking them to the Oklahoma Indian Nations Pow Wow in Concho. Concho is located 6 miles north of El Reno and is the Cheyenne Arapaho Tribal Agency headquarters. The head singer for the pow wow gourd dances is my nephew, Kendall Kauley. I am an active member of the Red Moon Gourd Clan, a group of gourd dancers from my home town. These are home town friends and family. We will be dancing in support of Kendall.

    I will report back tomorrow with some photos of Ed and Trudy at the powwow. Should be a fun time for us...

          Ed and Trudy go to a Gourd Dance in Oklahoma

    As I reported Friday, I took Ed and Trudy to the Gourd Dance session of the Oklahoma Indian Nations Pow Wow in Concho. Concho is about 20 minutes from my house. The dance was held community center about five blocks from the Cheyenne Arapaho Agency headquarters. Here's a Google Earth screen capture of the center.

    In this photo, Ed and Trudy are examining my gourd rattle. Actually the gourd rattle is an aluminum salt shaker fashioned into a rattle which is partially filled with small stones and decorated with beads, feathers and horse hair. A few dancers do have actual gourd rattles made from gourds. Here's an example of a true gourd rattle. This particular rattle is half size and would be used by a young boy. Generally speaking, however, the most popular rattle used by gourd dancers is the salt shaker rattle.

    This photo was taken early in the dance and, looking from where Ed and Trudy were sitting, is of several of the Red Moon Clan. Here's another shot of dancers. No, that's not me there on the right. He's a look-alike friend from another part of the Cheyenne Arapaho Nation. :) Looking toward the drums and dancers, here's a shot of Ed and Trudy. Behind them are several of the Red Moon Clan. This photo is from Trudy's camera. Here's a photo of the drummers. My nephew, Kendal Kauley, was the head singer and is sitting in the traditional head singer's seat at the far end. He's the one in red shirt.

    The dance was about 4 hours long. After the closing dance, and as we were leaving my friend, Jerry Roman Nose (standing left of Ed), who is the son of a high school friend, gave Ed a blanket. It was a nice Cheyenne (Native American) gesture of friendship. Great photo! Great day and a very good experience.

Indeed it was a great day. I hope David was not offended with my answer when he asked what I thought and I replied "loud noise makes me tired". It does, I really noticed it when we where in B'ham for So. Florida's Bowl Game. in January, but I still enjoy Football and I enjoyed the Gourd Dance, it was real fun to see so many people having a good time celebrating their heritage. I especially enjoyed watching even the small children participate in the dance with serious dedication.

David and Effie made our lay over in Oklahoma City a high lite of our trip. And the blanket presented by Jerry Roman Nose is a prized possession. What a way to make a stranger feel welcome.

Today we departed OK City about 10:30 and arrived here in Muskogee around 4:30. We spent a lot of time exiting and reentering I-40 looking for a place to have lunch. We finally parked in the parking lot of a restaurant that is for sale and Trudy whipped up a lunch out of our
frig. We should have done that the first time we pulled off. It looks like we will have to develop a taste for Mexican food. Of course finding a place to park 60 ft of Motorerhome and car was part of the problem. But even the Truck stops where filled up or only had Subway's.

The park we are in (Medowbrook) was a real find, no frills but nice RV lots with full hook-ups at $20.00 a night. The gravel roads could use some fill but they keep the cowboys from speeding. :roll: Muskogee is the northern most inland port off the Gulf of Mexico. Through a network of rivers it connects to the Mississippi and Ohio rivers also.

I hope to pick up refills on a couple meds at the VA clinic today. I could have gotten them in Oklahoma City but the VA there is in the city center. We are looking forward to a tour of Bacone College today.

    Not offended at all, Ed. I completely understand. What you may not have noticed was that I turned my hearing aids down 2 notches on several occasions to dampen the sound of the singing & the drums. It's isn't often that a gourd dance in a smaller arena (like that one) will have 4 drums and 20 singers. In fact, that's the first time I've ever seen 4 drums in that place. Usually there are two drums and 8 to 10 singers.

    For readers, here's a link to photos of the Meadowbrook RV Park. I'm not familiar with that park, but looks like a very nice place.

I hope to pick up refills on a couple meds at the VA clinic today. I could have gotten them in Oklahoma City but the VA there is in the city center. We are looking forward to a tour of Bacone College today.

    The VA Medical Center in Muskogee is one of the best in the state. I imagine you've already located the address. It's located up on the top of that big hill on the NW side of Muskogee. They call the top of that hill "Honor Heights." There's a nice tourist attraction near the medical center. You might enjoy taking a drive through it. The Honor Heights Park is located slightly down the hill, just west of the medical center. In April of every year they have an annual Azalia Festival, which is a popular attraction state wide. While I was pastor at Dewey, we took the senior citizens town there every year.

    You will enjoy touring the Bacone campus. Here are some photos of the Bacone Campus. Be sure to visit the sculpture of a Chickasaw warrior, which in the the open space between the chapel and the administration buildings. It was created by Oklahoma state Senator Kelly Haney, who is an Bacone graduate. Sen. Haney also created the The Guardian, which sits atop the Oklahoma Capitol Dome.

Ed: From lat Thursday evening untill this morning we where parked on the Campus of Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Shawnee Kansas.

Dr. John Park the director of the the Doctor of ministry Program gave us a tour of the facility on Friday.John and a few others from the Adm.staff a tour of our home on wheels. Saturday we did laundry and went Grocery shopping and a lot of reading. Sunday, Molly Picked us up and drove us to Prairie Baptist Church for SS and the worship service which was primarily a report by the Youth group 20 some energetic young people who excitedly told us of their recent mission trip to Nicaragua. After church she introduced us to one of KC's many great bar-B que places. When we got back om campus we gave her a tour of our coach. All through the drive and lunch had a wonderful reminiscing about our common experiences in Louisville.

This morning we hooked up the car went and into the building to say good by. We where invited to her office for coffee and further conversation about the D.Min program which Trudy may be entering in the near future.

Tonight we are parked in the RV section of the Missouri state fair ground with about 300 more RVs. The fair is in its second week. We plan to be here through Next Monday and the Eclipse. On Tuesday of next week we will move on to Jefferson City to visit family.

Ed: Saturday and Sunday we spent in Jefferson City (the Capital of Missouri) and at the lake of the Ozarks visiting with three generations of Trudy's family. We left the Coach here in Sedalia and stayed in a motel within sight of the Capital Building for one night all of the Motels where filled for Sunday night due to eclipse.

This is always a busy tourist season in this area but the eclipse is drawing literally thousands more according to news reports from the State Police.
I spotted license plates from 14 states in the motel parking lot yesterday morning.

The big question is "What will the weather be like around 2:00 PM"

We will be staying here where we have a good internet connection another three days. Then we will head for Fort Wayne Indiana to visit some of of my family.

The eclipse will start here within the hour, and I will be driving to work through the early stages of it. I go on the clock ten minutes after the maximum point of darkness (we should be at about 92% coverage, I gather). So no trip to Oregon for this one.

Ed: Here in the Mo. State Fair grounds camping area the view was fantastic. The most surprising to me was how slow the progression of the darkness seemed to be Until the last 90 seconds before total when it seemed, as if some one was turning down a rheostat. The total here was at 1:10 PM, yet a large part of the coverage , perhaps 20 percent, is still visible at 1:59.

They are closing this section of the Camping area at 8: PM so we will be moving to another section in about an hour.
