My day at the museum was quiet compared to Memorial Day on Monday. We had very few visitors during the time I was there. I found the most interesting visitor was a Colonel from Shawnee, KS, stationed at Ft. Leavenworth, KS. He and his wife and young son toured the museum and stopped at the gift shop where I visited with them. The Colonel had met his wife in Germany where she was residing with her military father. She said she was an Army brat. Another interesting visitor was from Germany and spoke no English. He was accompanied by an English speaking man and they were visiting all the museums in Oklahoma City. I was impressed by mothers with toddlers visiting the museum. The fathers were not in the armed services, just mothers on an outing with their child. Some of the volunteers were talking about my picture that was on the front page of the local newspaper taken during the Memorial Day ceremony. The picture was so small that everyone had used a magnifying glass. I couldn't tell it was me until someone pointed it out to me. Everyone at the museum, either volunteers or staff, are so helpful and knowledgeable about the museum. It is a pleasure to work with all of them.
I started mowing my grass after coming home from the museum on Thursday and finished the entire yard today. A man came and edged and weedeated. The yard looks so nice and I have flowers in bloom. It won't be too much longer here in Oklahoma that everything will be parched from the hot temperatures and everything will turn brown. We have had several thunderstorms lately that has made everything green and lush.
Tonight Keith, Kelly, and I went to Poblano's, a Mexican restaurant, for dinner. We all had a Margarita and felt so refreshed after drinking it. The dinner was very satifying and filling. I had eaten very little all day and I ate like a pig, everything put in front of me, I ate. Keith and Kelly had had a very busy day and they both were relaxed and rested after our dinner.
I am looking forward to my trip to Tulsa on Monday and Tuesday. We first go to Firelake Casino in Shawnee and then on to the Cherokee Casino for the night and next day. I probably won't post to my blog until after I get back on Wednesday. If I don't win on this trip, maybe I will the next time. I won't give up until I am one of the "lucky few" who hit it big at the casino. I only hope I live long enough to enjoy a big win.
