There was a little mom & pop grocery in the 1200-block of Choctaw, I think...one block north of Flynn. I have no recollection of who owned it, but it was a nifty little store that was on the south side of the street, maybe about the middle of the block.
 ~Rod Murrow regarding Okie's story from Vol. 8 Iss. 10 titled UNTITLED

I received this reply from Richard Reddick, Ben Reddick's son and thought it might be of interest to you. Lois: Probably truth to all points on the issue...but Dad was credited when, as a young journalist doing features on the Great Depression and the dust bowl emigrants to California's San Joaquin Valley [more]...

Duchess Corner

Well! That dang "Oakie" ran off on family business this whole week to NW Oklahoma. Leaving this mountain dog with friends of ours to hold down the fort. I do not really mind, though, 'cause I got to stay and enjoy the fresh new snowfall.

The picture to the left shows how understanding I can be when my friend finally let me have a tiny share of my own pillow on the seventh day of my stay. Here's another shot of my friend on my pillow - Sharing Duchess' Pillow

I understand that I have been cracking my friends up lately. You see... I'm an early riser! I've been waking up -- go to the end of the bed -- peek under this blanket at my dog friend to see if I can get anyone aroused, awake to play. I proceed to take my playful stance position. Nothing! Absolutely nothing of any kind of reaction comes from my friend, EXCEPT... She does give me this strange little stare that sends me to the other end of the bed.

While I saunter to the head of the bed the human friend I think is watching the whole thing just tells me, "Lay back down, Duchess! It's too early!" So... to please her and get some satisfaction of my own I just plop my 20-something pounds down right up next to her like a hundred pounds of weight -- rest my head and chin near her head -- so if she looks in my direction she can't resist these pathetic pug brown eyes. It usually works with Oakie, but this human friend is a bit trickier and different. View/Write Comments (count 1)   |   Receive updates (0 subscribers)  |   Unsubscribe


Dodge City Kansas - Stagecoach Mural

Oakie sent me this great shot of a stagecoach mural that she spotted on her arrival in Dodge City, Kansas. As you come into town from the west (hwy 50), pass the OLD Dodge City Boothill and old west storefront. You will see a bronze statute of a longhorn cow. You then proceed to make a left turn (heading north) on the main north-south main downtown streets of Dodge City, Kansas. You won't miss it. It's only about a block north of hwy 50 that runs east & west in Dodge City. The Stagecoach Mural is on the southside of the Bank of America building, on the westside of the street. Here's another view of that same mural - Stagecoach mural - Hey! are those red brick streets that I see? View/Write Comments (count 0)   |   Receive updates (0 subscribers)  |   Unsubscribe


NEW Alva OK Mural - Hot Rod Days

I understand that Alva, Oklahoma has a NEW mural on Barnes Avenue, in downtown Alva. It depicts the Hot Rod Days of Alva, Oklahoma. If Oakie's memory serves her correctly, I believe that behind that building is about where McGill Bros. Swimming pool once resided. I believe now it has been filled in and no longer exist. Oakie thought that there used to be a narrow walkway between one of those buildings nearby and the building that the mural is on. You could use that walkway to walk back behind the building to the old swimming pool in downtown Alva. Does any of this sound familar with anyone else out there?

Here Comes Trigger

Well! Send Oakie down to NW Oklahoma and the horses and what does she do? Yep! Oakie sent me this photo of our NEW Addition to the family. She feel in love with this great looking addition to our horse family. His barn name is "Trigger." He is a registered quarterhorse with AQHA. He is in the process of being ridden, trained. Oakie says, "It doesn't spook at anything -- It's been trained to walk, ride right in to one of those narrow storage containers -- It's a two year old, palomino, gelding. It's registered AQHA name is "Doc Lynx Son." It's mother is "Flying Lynx." I guess sometime towards end of May, 2005 Trigger and our paint horse (Doquoti) will be coming to the valley of SW Colorado.

Oakie did tell me about her father (Gene McGill's) raised a palomino horse called "Nugget." She particularly remembers that Gene had brought "Nugget" in to town at 703 7th Street one day and little Oakie was placed in the saddle on Nugget's back. I don't think Oakie knew much about riding back then. They both proceeded to take a walk around the yard and house. Along came this tree branch as they rounded the norhtwest corner of the house -- swoosh! Nugget forgot to tell this youngster on his back to duck for tree limbs! Off Oakie went on to the ground. Not sure of the rest of the story, because it was vague in Oakie's mind, also. View/Write Comments (count 0)   |   Receive updates (0 subscribers)  |   Unsubscribe

One of First. People at Ft. Supply Mental Institution (1908)..

"My GG-Grandmother was one of the first people to enter in the Ft. Supply (Oklahoma) Mental Institution in 1908. I have actually traveled to the hospital in order to see her gravestone. It was a sad thing to see her there. I met Bob Rea when my mother and I were there. At that time Bob was going through a whole of old photos and organizing the history at Ft. Supply. I am hoping that someone has the ability to visit Ft. Supply (Bob Rea) I believe my GG Grandmother must be in those photos somewhere. I hope you will get back to me one way or another. Thank you for your time. My email address is below." -- Vonnie Wright - EmaiL: vnwright1977@yahoo.com View/Write Comments (count 0)   |   Receive updates (0 subscribers)  |   Unsubscribe


Leaving A Mark On Our Lives

"It has been a great experience to read your weekly Legacy. As you know I grew up in southern and SE Oklahoma and never really had much knowledge of what was going on in the NW part of Oklahoma. Your weekly letter has enlightened me and taught me much about the area I knew of only by reading Oklahoma History in my early school days. Time goes by and fades away leaving only a shadow of itself, BUT... the mark it leaves on our lives will always be there. Thanks." -- Ernest M.

Faulkner Caves - NW Oklahoma

"I don''t know when I will get back to Alva to see these caves. I used to crawl around in them as a kid. I was there probably 10 years ago and they looked like a nice place for snakes. I guess your thoughts change as you get older. Or just lived in the city too long." -- Steve View/Write Comments (count 0)   |   Receive updates (0 subscribers)  |   Unsubscribe


Elementary School Teachers From the Past

"Linda, if I had gone to Washington, it would be easy for me to remember the teachers since you just named them. However, I went to Longfellow and I think I remember them, but I''m not going to list them cause if I'm wrong, I don''t want anyone to know it. :)" View/Write Comments (count 0)   |   Receive updates (0 subscribers)  |   Unsubscribe

American Civil War Uniforms & German POWs

"Beautiful website! Thank you. Doing small research on the story of American Civil War uniforms issued to our German POWs during their stay. I noticed that you have mentioned 'obsolete' American uniforms were made available to the Germans. Is there any further reference to this source of information available? Again, a great site of almost lost history." -- Tim Desmond - Email: bobbitimdesmond@cs.com View/Write Comments (count 0)   |   Receive updates (0 subscribers)  |   Unsubscribe
