I seized that day!

Really, I got lost.  I was several miles away from where I thought I was.  But it turned out to be pretty fun!  Like a good blogger, I had my camera safely stowed in my purse.  I figured the sites were too beautiful, in their old-broken-down kind of way, to simply pass by… so I took dozens of random pictures of Old Old Oklahoma city, Oklahoma.  Here are some for ya…

This place was pretty cool; what with the destroyed parking lot, friendly paintings, old water tower, and all.  Then I realized it wasn’t so family-friendly when I noticed there were vagrants everywhere hiding in the shadows.  I grabbed Brody and took off so fast, the fun was over.

That is, until I noticed this awesome guy taking a leak on that clothing donation box!  I missed the part where he was actually peeing {sorry} I mean, I was DRIVING when I took this… I got what I could.  But you can see he’s buckling up his pants!  SIIIIICK!  haha!

And here’s more pictures I took while driving.  I hope this convinces you all to come visit me.  Not that I need entertaining or anything.

And Later, I had so much fun taking pictures of it here, that I went around where we live and got some photos.  I know you wanted to see Moore.  haha get it?  We live in Moore.  Never mind.

i LOVE that you took a picture of that guy "making his donation"! hahaha! and the creepy massage van! Oh Connie, you're the best!!!

p.s. - I have "Master of the House" from Les Miserables stuck in my head. The significance of that probably goes without saying, but (just in case) George Kastanza has that same dilemma during a Seinfeld episode. ...for some reason, I wanted you and Tony to know this...

Yeah, I concur with Dad. You are a talented writer/photographer! The DC Temple, Hershey Park and Clemyjontri sound fun to me! I also thought of having you come when you could see the wild horses on Chincotegue Island. Its the last Wednesday and Thursday in July. It's 3 1/2 hours away, though. Let me know what you think. Type in Wild horses at chincotegue if you want info first! Love, Mother It's not letting me post again, so I'll be anonymous!

Hey Connie! I actually have really learned to love Moore! There aren't really a TON of things to see, but it's just really nice and laid back. What ward are you guys in? How old is your baby? You can email me at and we can chat more about it then! Do you stay at home with your baby or do you work? Send me an email and maybe we can meet up or something!

oh my, that picture of the guy zipping up his pants is priceless. Talk about being at the right place at the right time or is it the wrong time?

wow looks like one great place to live. i think when i have kids i'll raise them there. i personnaly applaud that man for not conforming to the crazy idea of bathrooms. every plant, tree, shrub or donation box(especially the donation box) is a perfectly good place to go! -mike
