Where’s Ronald?

This poor place has seen happier meals.  And my iSnapshots don’t fully illustrate the state of dilapidation at the McDonald’s over the Will Rogers Turnpike.  OK, that may be a little harsh, but McDinginess, certainly, has gripped the coolest thing between Kansas City and Dallas.  No hot water.  No heat.  No orange juice!  OK after 20 minutes they found some orange juice…

I am way behind with the blog!  But I’ve got some space to breath in the next couple days so I hope to get it up to date.  Apologies in advance for the deluge…

This is the new Stephenson Life Sciences Research Center at OU, in Norman Oklahoma – designed by PGAV with Research Facilities Design, and built by Flintco.

Great Flood of ’73

I can’t be completely certain, but these appear to be photos of the 1973 flood in Enid, Oklahoma.  They’re some my Grandfather took, and he rarely labeled anything.  There are only a very few notes in all the hundreds of photos I’ve gone through; on one box he wrote “Dad Boyer + Lois”, the another he said “There are eagles in here”.

Not related, I think.

I was sorting through a pile of my late grandfather Bill’s slides, when I began to see photos of this happy man.  I don’t know if he’s a relative, or a friend of my grandfather’s.  I like to think Bill was really an undercover government agent – not a TV repairman like he told everybody – and this guy was his charge, placed in Muskogee for  witness protection.

Rockhill Lecture in Tulsa

Dan Rockill spoke Thursday the 17th at the Schusterman Learning Center at OU-Tulsa.  The Lecture was sponsored byPohlenz Cucine Moderne and Valcucine – and was a blast.  Rockhill presents his own and his KU Studio 804‘s work with humor and the easy style of a great story teller, and  Scott and Mindy Pohlenz throw an after party you don’t want to miss.  If you ever find yourself receiving an invitation from them, don’t hesitate to RSVP yes!  And their kitchens really are the coolest you’ve ever seen.
