NW Okie's Journey

Bayfield, CO - Here is wishing you all a "Health, Happiness, and Prosperity to you in the New Year with lots of Hope to keep you going and growing strong!" We all need a little Hope now and then, don't we?

As I continue taking my hormone and bone density meds (with no side effects), I continue to have Hope that I have chosen the right path, surgery to cut away my right breast cancer and have breast reconstruction. I am thankful that my progress is void of chemotherapy for now.

We will be on the road in a few days, for a three week journey back to Houston, Texas to continue the expansion of the expander in the right breast. Once that is complete, we wait three months or so while the skin is stretched for the permanent right breast implant and the reconstruction on left breast to even each side so I an not lopsided. Can not have a lopsided old lady walking around, now can we? Thank goodness for the "Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)," Social Security & Medicare that we older folks have paid into all our working and self-employed life.

Good Night, Good Luck and Hope for All throughout your lives! View/Write Comments (count 0)   |   Receive updates (0 subscribers)  |   Unsubscribe

Walking With Sadie

Bayfield, CO - Since our CEO (Duchess, editor-in-chief) is no longer with us, we have given our Sadie Pug that position of "Editor-in-chief." Go get 'em, Sadie Sadie! It's your turn to shine and walk with us to discover the history of our pasts as we journey into the present and future. Sadie says, "Woof Woof! I've got some big shoes to fill with the passing of my buddy Duchess. She was the best! I won't try to fill her shoes completely, but will try to add to what Duchess started."

Sadie Reports:

As reported in The Daily Ardmoreite, in Ardmore, Southern Oklahoma, headlines: "Fare Five Dollars," passengers were limited to two hundred in weight in flying on the Tampa, Florida airplane. Those weighting more than two hundred pounds would have to pay express fares. A daily airplane passenger and express service was inaugurated January 1, 1913, between Tampa, Florida and St. Petersburg, eighteen lies across the bay. The flight was made in twenty-three minutes. The fare was five dollars each way. If the passenger weighted over two hundred pounds, he must pay five cents excess for each pound over two hundred.

Did you also know that one hundred years ago that the Pan American States Association had a plan to erect a fifty-one story building, the world's tallest building, in New York, January 1, 1913?

The Pan-American States association filed plans December 31, 1912, for the tallest building in the world. It would be fifty-one stories or 894.6 feet, and would be erected on Broadway and Fifty-eighth street.

1913 Ardmore - Many Watch the Old Year Out

Ardmore, OK - The Daily Ardmoreite, in Ardmore, Southern Oklahoma, reported that "Many Watch the Old Year Out." Elks and Knights of Pythias keep open house until after birth of New Year.

The Elks and Knights of Pythias kept open house, December 31, 1912 thru January 1, 1913, to watch the old year out and the new year in, when the hour of midnight arrived, assisted in the pandemonium that broke loose simultaneously in all parts of the city.

At the Knights of Pythias hall about thirty couples indulged in an informal dance and so well was the function enjoyed that the dancers remained long after midnight. January 1, 1913, the streets of the city presented a deserted appearance, the banks, all city and county offices were closed, and the employees as a rule were out in the fields with dog and gun, but those who remained in the city were out early wishing their friends a bright and prosperous new year.

The oldest inhabitant of this city remarked that this had been the quietest Christmas ever known in Ardmore, in times past the people were inclined to unloosen during the holidays and make things lively if not noisy, but there seemed to be a disposition to spend the holidays in a safe and sane manner and needless to say, it was a decided improvement over the old system. Many of this county had not done their Christmas shopping yet form the fact that for the past six weeks the roads had been might near impassable, but merchants were consoling themselves with the fact that they will get the trade as soon as the roads would permit these people getting to town, and that the year 1913 and it is a thing of the past every one took advantage of an early start this morning and made their New Year's resolutions early.
