A couple of Okies go for a ride
« on: August 16, 2015, 07:15:17 PM »
 Lowryter and I took an amazingly fun ride on some back roads East of OKC today . Probably only 60 miles total , but some of it was in a really cool old neighborhood ending in a great outdoor space with lots of shade and fun young folks . Sorry . no pics , unless John snuck some in . Fun way to spend a few hours , Thanks John .

 Oh , no other riders overtook us , and lots were out , hard to beat a well ridden old Tonti with old geezers at the controls .

Absolutely. Geezers are 15 years older than you are, no matter how old you are. :)

Hey now, I turned 60 today. Can I now join the old geezers' club? The dirty old man club?

What?  there's no place to ride in Oklahomie! Nothing but dust, armadillos and wind! Oh, and rattlers!

Dusty,

I saw a live armadillo on my bicycle ride last Wednesday, does that count?

Glad you had fun!

 Ahh the rare "live" armadillo sighting . Amazingly , we saw none of our walking tank buddies , there was a dead skunk in the middle of the road .

dunno ya'lls proclivity towards music and such...but this reminds me of a lyric written by a young Okie from Bearden. Kid named John Fullbright. I'm a fan.

Central Oklahoma is my land, it's my country,
Eastern Oklahoma is a beautiful sight.
Northern Oklahoma might as well be Kansas,
Never go to Southern Oklahoma at night.

glad you had some fun.
