All Creatures Juicy and Crunchy

I'm not a vegetarian. I love a nice thick Omaha Steak and a cut of ribeye is just about the perfect meat for me. I do have sympathies for those who are vegetarians as long as they aren't militant about it. However, I appreciate a good joke about anything.

Recently I ate lunch at a Mom and Pop fast food place in Salina, Oklahoma. That's "sah LYN a" for those of you from California. There was a large young man there who had a very clever and amusing t-shirt.

There's a place for all of God's creatures.
Right next to the mashed potatoes and gravy.

Take care and "say excuse me all the way."

Friendly Oklahoma

My wife and I just got back from a visit to Oklahoma. We had a wonderful time and were very impressed at how well people behaved towards each other.

At a base ball game, we heard a woman in her twenties who sent her enthusiastic son of about seven years old to buy ice cream with the caution, "Say excuse me all the way."

This attitude was very refreshing and a good lesson to those of us who live in less friendly, less polite areas.

The whole attitude was expressed by the sign above that was located near the Oklahoma State Capital building. It's a good approach to driving and just about anything else to do with life.

Take care and "say excuse me all the way."
