I’m still out there…..

June 10, 2017

Wow….A mess of stuff had happened since I’ve posted here last. We moved from Havasu to Altus, Oklahoma and a year later, we wound up in Guthrie, Oklahoma.


Life got away again…..

May 18, 2015

So here we are, 4 months later and the girls and I have left Arizona and moved to Oklahoma……daddyO took a job offer here in Altus, OK for the same company I was working for in Havasu. I know the girls miss everyone and I’m no exception. The job keeps me very busy and the people around town have been friendly enough.

The ‘vette was transported out first and Ann and I drove 2 rental trucks with me towing the Continental. We found a place out on the south end of town with the Texas border less than 20 miles from us. It’s sort of like being in the center of a few places that are less that a 3 hour drive from us…plenty of new places to explore once we get settled.

A strange thing happened to me this morning…

April 16, 2010

I went to use scribus this morning for a sign on my fruit packing plant I’m building for the train layout. Funny thing was, it wasn’t on the menu…I know it was installed, but it wasn’t there after I installed it. It has to be a glitch somewhere as it will run from the terminal.
